WARNING: Experience indicates that alcohol blended

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

If grass is extremely tall, it should be mowed twice to
reduce toad and possible fire hazard from dried clippings. Make first cut relatively high; the second to the

Do not mow grass when it is wet., Wet grass will plug

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 cutting
performance as welt as the quality of cut desired.
When operating attachments, select a ground speed
that wilt suit the terrain and give best performance of

MULCHING
MOWING TIPS
IMPORTANT:
FOR BEST PERFORMANCE, KEEP
FREE
OF BUILT-UP GRASS AND
TRASH. CLEAN AFTER EACH USE.
MOWER
•
The special mulching blade will recut 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 (See Fig. 11). 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.
TIPS
Tire chains cannot be used when the mower housing
is attached to tractor,,
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 trimmingo
Drive so that clippings are discharged onto' the area
that has been cu!. Have the cut area to the right of the
machine° This will result in a more even distrib'ution 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 (See Fig,, 10 ).,

TIRES
•
BLADE (See Fig. 13)
The blade can be sharpened with a file or on a grinding
wheel. Do not attempt to sharpen while on the mower.
To check blade balance, you will need a 5/8" diameter
steel bolt, pin, or a cone balancero (When using a cone
balancer, follow the instructions supplied with balancer).
-
Maintain proper air pressure in all tires (See "PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS" on page 3 of this manual),,
•
Keep tires free of gasoline, oil, or insect control chemicals which can harm rubber.
Slide blade on to an unthreaded portion of the steel bolt
or pin and hold the belt or pin parallel with the ground,
If blade is balanced, it should remain in a horizontal
position, If either end of the blade moves downward,
sharpen the heavy end until the blade is balanced.
•
Avoid stumps, stones, deep ruts, sharp objects and
other hazards that may cause tire damage,,
NOTE: Do not use a nail for balancing blade_ The lobes of
the center hole may appear to be centered, but are noL
