themselves and others from serious injury.
SLOPE
OPERATION
Slopes are a major factor related to lossof-control and tipover accidents, which
can result in severe injury or death. All
slopes require extra caution. If you cannot
back up the slope or if you feel uneasy on
it, do not mow it.
DO:
• Mow up and down slopes, not across.
• Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree
limbs, etc.
• Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps. Uneven terrain could overturn the machine. Tall grass can hide obstacles.
• Use slow speed. Choose a low gear so
that you will not have to stop or shift
while on the slope.
• Follow the manufacturer's recommen-
DO NOT:
• Do notturn on slopes unless necessary, and then, turn slowly and gradually downhill, if possible.
• Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches, or
embankments. The mower could suddenly turn over if a wheel is over the
edge of a cliff or ditch, or if an edge
caves in.

The operation of any tractor can result in foreign objects thrown into the
eyes, which can result in severe eye damage. Always wear safety glasses
or eye shields while operating your tractor or performing any adjustments
or repairs. We recommend a wide vision safety mask over spectacles, or
standard safety glasses.
HOWTO
USEYOURTRACTOR
TO SET PARKING BRAKE
Your tractor is equipped with an operator
presence sensing switch. When engine is
running, any attempt by the operator to
leave the seat without first setting the
parking brake will shut off the engine.
• Depress clutch/brake
pedal into full
"BRAKE" position and hold.
• Place parking brake lever in "ENGAGED" position and release pressure
from clutch/brake pedal. Pedal should
remain in "BRAKE" position. Make sure
parking brake will hold tractor secure.

NOTE: Failure to move throttle control to
slow position and allowing engine to idle
before stopping may cause engine to
"backfire".
• Turn ignition key to "OFF" position and remove key. Always remove key when leaving tractor to prevent unauthorized use.
• Never use choke to stop engine.
IMPORTANT:
-Leaving the ignition switch
in any position other than "OFF" will
cause the battery to be discharged
(dead).
NOTE: Under certain conditions when
tractor is standing idle with the engine
running, hot engine exhaust gases may
cause "browning" of grass. To eliminate
this possibility, always stop engine when
stopping tractor on grass areas.
_CAUTION:
Always stop tractor completely, as described above, oerore leaving the operator's position, to empty grass
catcher, etc.

• Full throttle offers the best bagging and
mower performance.
TO MOVE FORWARD AND BACKWARD
The direction and speed of movement is
controlled by the motion control lever.
• Start tractor with motion control lever in

The cutting
height range is approximately 1-1/2 to 4". The heights are measured from the ground to the blade tip
with the engine not running. These
heights are approximate
and may vary
depending upon soil conditions, height of
grass and types of grass being mowed.
• The average lawn should be cut to approximately 2-1/2 inches during the
cool season and to over 3 inches during hot months. For healthier and better looking lawns, mow often and after
moderate growth.
• For best cutting performance, grass
over 6 inches in height should be
mowed twice. Make the first cut relatively high; the second to desired
height.
TO ADJUST GAUGE WHEELS
Gauge wheels are properly adjusted
when they are slightly off the ground
when mower is at the desired cutting
height in operating position. Gauge
wheels then keep the deck in proper position to help prevent scalping in most terrain conditions.
• Adjust gauge wheels

NOTE: To protect hood from damage
when transporting your tractor on a truck
or a trailer, be sure hood is closed and
secured to tractor. Use an appropriate
means of tying hood to tractor (rope, cord,
etc.).
TOWING CARTS AND OTHER
ATTACHMENTS
Tow only the attachments that are recommended by and comply with specifications of the manufacturer of your tractor.
Use common sense when towing. Too
heavy of a load, while on a slope, is dangerous. Tires can lose traction with the
ground and cause you to lose control of
your tractor.
ADD
• Fill fuel tank. Use fresh, clean, regular
unleaded gasoline with a minimum of
87 octane. (Use of leaded gasoline will
increase carbon and lead oxide deposits and reduce valve life). Do not mix oil
with gasoline. Purchase fuel in quantities that can be used within 30 days to
assure fuel freshness.
IMPORTANT:
When operating in temperatures below 32°F(0°C), use fresh, clean
winter grade gasoline to help insure good
cold weather starting.
_i_WARNING:
Experience indicates that
alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or
using ethanol or methanol) can attract
moisture which leads to separation and
formation of acids during storage. Acidic
gas can damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage. To avoid engine
problems, the fuel system should be emptied before storage of 30 days or longer.
Drain the gas tank, start the engine and
let it run until the fuel lines and carburetor
are empty. Use fresh fuel next season.
See Storage Instructions for additional information.
Never use engine or carburetor
cleaner products in the fuel tank o_"permanent damage may occur.
-_CAUTION:
Fill to bottom of gas tank
filler neck. Do not overfill. Wipe on any
spilled oil or fuel. Do not store, spill or use
gasoline near an open flame.
TO START ENGINE
BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE

feet) or in cold temperatures
(below 32 F)
the carburetor fuel mixture may need to
be adjusted for best engine performance.
See "TO ADJUST CARBURETOR"
in the
Service and Adjustments
section of this
manual.
PURGE TRANSMISSION
_IiCAUTION:
Never engage or disengage freewheel
lever while the engine
running.
is
To ensure proper operation and performance, it is recommended
that the transmission be purged before operating tractor for the first time. This procedure will remove any trapped air inside the transmission which may have developed during
shipping of your tractor.
IMPORTANT:
Should your transmission
require removal for service or replacement, it should be purged after reinstallation before operating the tractor.
• Place tractor safely on level surface
with engine off and parking brake set.
• Disengage
transmission
by placing
freewheel control in freewheeling
position (See "TO TRANSPORT"
in this section of manual).
• Sitting in the tractor seat, start engine.
After the engine is running, move
throttle control to slow position. With
motion control lever in neutral (N) position, slowly disengage clutch/brake
pedal.
• Move motion control lever to full forward
position and hold for five (5) seconds.
Move lever to full reverse position and
hold for five (5) seconds. Repeat this
procedure three (3) times.
NOTE: During this procedure there will be
no movement of drive wheels. The air is
being removed from hydraulic drive system.
• Move motion control lever to neutral (N)
position. Shut off engine and set parking brake.
• Engage transmission by placing freewheel control in driving position (See
"TO TRANSPORT"
in this section of
manual).
• Sitting in the tractor seat, start engine.

MOWING
TIPS
• Mower should be properly leveled for
best mowing performance.
See 'q'O
LEVEL MOWER HOUSING" in the Service and Adjustments
section of this
manual.
• The left hand side of mower should be
used for trimming.
• Drive so that clippings are discharged
onto the area that has been cut. Have
the cut area to the right of the tractor.
This will result in a more even distribution of clippings and more uniform cutting.
• When mowing large areas, start by turning to the right so that clippings will discharge away from shrubs, fences, driveways, etc. After one or two rounds, mow
in the opposite direction making left
hand turns until finished.
• If grass is extremely tall, it should be
mowed twice to reduce load and possible fire hazard from dried clippings.
Make first cut relatively high; the second
to the desired height.
• Do not mow grass when it is wet. Wet
grass will plug mower and leave undesirable clumps. Allow grass to dry before mowing.
• Always operate engine at full throttle
when mowing to assure better mowing
performance and proper discharge of
material. Regulate ground speed by selecting a low enough gear to give the
mower the best cutting performance as
well as the quality of cut desired.
• When operating attachments, select a
ground speed that will suit the terrain
and give best performance of the attachment being used.
MULCHING
MOWING
TIPS
IMPORTANT:
For best performance,
keep
mower housing free of built-up grass and
trash. Clean after each use.
• The special mulching blade will recur
the grass clippings many times and reduce them in size so that as they fall
onto the lawn they will disperse into the
grass and not be noticed. Also, the
mulched grass will biodegrade quickly
to provide nutrients for the lawn. Always
mulch with your highest engine (blade)
speed as this will provide the best recutting action of the blades.
• Avoid cutting your lawn when it is wet.
Wet grass tends to form clumps and interferes with the mulching action. The
best time to mow your lawn is the early
afternoon. At this time the grass has
dried and the newly cut area will not be
exposed to the direct sun.
• For best results, adjust the mower cutting height so that the mower cuts off
only the top one-third of the grass
blades. For extremely heavy mulching,
reduce your width of cut on each pass
and mow slowly.
• Certain types of grass and grass conditions may require that an area be
mulched a second time to completely
hide the clippings. When doing a second cut, mow across or perpendicular
to the first cut path.
• Change your cutting pattern from week
to week. Mow north to south one week
then change to east to west the next
week. This will help prevent matting and
graining of the lawn.

• Start engine and allow to warm for five
minutes. Make adjustments with engine
running and shift/motion control lever in
neutral (N) position.
Idle speed setting - With throttle control
lever in slow position, engine should
idle at 1750 RPM. If engine idles too
slow or fast, turn idle speed adjusting
screw in or out until correct idle is attained.
With engine not running, move throttle
control lever from slow to choke position. Slowly move lever from choke to
fast position.
• Check to see if hole in throttle lever and
hole in speed control bracket are
aligned.
• If holes are not aligned, loosen cable
clamp screw and align the holes by inserting a pencil or a 1/4" drill bit through
both holes.
• Idle fuel needle f_e_tin9 - With throttle

smoothly.
High speed stop is factory adjusted. Do
not adjust - damage may result.
IMPORTANT:
Never tamper with the engine governor, which is factory set for
proper engine speed. Overspeeding the
engine above the factory high speed setting can be dangerous.
If you think the engine-governed
high speed needs adjusting, contact your nearest AUTHORIZED
service center/department,
which has
proper equipment
and experience

TO ADJUST
CARBURETOR
The carburetor has been preset at the factory and adjustment should not be necessary. However, minor adjustment
may be
required to compensate for differences in
fuel, temperature, altitude or load. If the
carburetor does need adjustment, proceed as follows:
In general, turning the adjusting needles
in (clockwise) decreases the supply of
fuel to the engine giving a leaner fuel/air
mixture. Turning the adjusting needles out
(counterclockwise)
increases the supply
of fuel to the engine giving a richer fuel/air
mixture.
IMPORTANT:
Damage to the needles
the seats in carburetor may result if
needle is turned in too tight.

NOTE: The carburetor on this engine is
low emission. It is equipped with an idle
fuel adjusting needle with a limiter cap,
which allows some adjustment within the
limits allowed by the cap. Do not attempt
to remove the limiter cap. The limiter cap
cannot be removed without breaking the
adjusting needle.
• Be sure you have a clean air filter and
the throttle control cable is adjusted
properly (see above). •
27
Immediately prepare your tractor for storage at the end of the season or if the tractor will not be used for 30 days or more.
Also, experience
indicates that alcohol
blended fuels (called gasohol or using
ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture
which leads to separation and formation of
acids during storage. Acidic gas can damage the fuel system of an engine while in
storage.
• Drain the fuel tank.
_I, CAUTION: Never store the tractor with
gasoline in the tank inside a building
where fumes may reach an open flame or
spark. Allow the engine to cool before storing in any enclosure.
TRACTOR
Remove mower from tractor for winter storage. This will allow you to clean it thoroughly. Remove all dirt, grease, leaves,
etc. Store in a clean, dry area.
• Clean entire tractor (See "CLEANING"
in
the Maintenance
section of this manual).
• Inspect and replace belts, if necessary
(See belt replacement
instructions in the
Service and Adjustments
section of this
manual).
• Lubricate as shown in the Maintenance
section of this manual.
• Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws
are securely fastened. Inspect moving
parts for damage, breakage and wear.
Replace if necessary.
• Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand lightly before painting.
BATTERY
• Start the engine and let it run until the
fuel lines and carburetor are empty.
• Never use engine or carburetor
cleaner
products in the fuel tank or permanent
damage may occur.
• Use fresh fuel next season.
NOTE: Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable alternative in minimizing the formation of
fuel gum deposits during storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline in fuel tank or storage
container. Always follow the mix ratio
found on stabilizer container. Run engine
at least 10 minutes after adding stabilizer
to allow the stabilizer to reach the carburetor. Do not drain the gas tank and carburetor if using fuel stabilizer.
ENGINE
OIL
Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace
with clean engine oil. (See "ENGINE" in
the Maintenance
section of this manual).
CYLINDER(S)
• Remove spark plug(s).
• Pour one ounce of oil through spark
plug hole(s) into cylinder(s).
• Turn ignition key to "START" position for
a few seconds to distribute oil.
• Replace with new spark plug(s).
OTHER
• Fully charge the battery for storage.
• After a period of time in storage, battery
may require recharging.
• To help prevent corrosion and power
leakage during long periods of storage,
battery cables should be disconnected
and battery cleaned thoroughly (see "TO
CLEAN BAI-IERY AND TERMINALS" in
the Maintenance section of this manual).
• After cleaning, leave cables disconnected and place cables where they cannot
come in contact with battery terminals.
• If battery is removed from tractor for storage, do not store battery directly on concrete or damp surfaces.
• Do not store gasoline from one season
to another.
• Replace your gasoline can if it starts to
rust. Rust and/or dirt in your gasoline will
cause problems.
• If possible, store your tractor indoors
and cover it to give protection from dust
and dirt.
ENGINE
FUEL SYSTEM
• Cover your tractor with a suitable protective cover that does not retain moisture.
IMPORTANT:
It is important to prevent
gum deposits from forming in essential
fuel system parts such as carburetor, fuel
filter, fuel hose, or tank during storage.
Do not use plastic. Plastic cannot
breathe, which allows condensation to
form and cause your tractor to rust.
IMPORTANT:
Never cover tractor while
engine and exhaust areas are still warm.
