II.
SLOPE
OPERATION
it
Slopes are a major factor related to loss-of-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.
o
Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree limbs, etc.
•
Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps.
Uneven terrain could
overturn the machine. Taft 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
recommendations
for wheel
weights or counterweights to improve stability.
,,
Use extra care with grass catchers or other attachments.
These can change the stabiJity of the machine.
•
Keep all movement on the slopes slow and gradual. Do not
make sudden changes in speed or direction.
•
Avoid starting or slopping on a slope. If tires lose traction,
disengage the blades and proceed slowly straight down the
slope.
DO NOT:
®
Do not turn on slopes unless necessary, and then, turn slowly
and gradually downhill, if possible.
o
Do not mow near drop-otis, 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.
.
Do not mow on wet grass. Reduced traction could cause
sliding.
,,
Do not try to stabilize the machine by putting your foot on the
ground.
Do not use grass catcher on steep slopes.
OBJECTS.
OR DEATH.
e

Grass catcher components are subject to wear, damage, and
deterioration, which could expose moving parts or allow
obiects to be thrown. Frequently check components and
replace with manufactureCs recommended parts, when necessary.

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.
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. 12
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.

WARNING:
Experience indicates that alcohol blended
fuels (ca!led gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can
attract moistu re 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 informatLon. Never use engine or

COLD WEATHER STARTING (50 ° F and below)
•
When engine starts, slowly push choke control in until
the engine begins to run smoothly. Continue to push
the choke control in small steps allowing the engine to
accept small changes in speed and load, until the
choke control is fully in. If the engine starts to run
roughly, pull the choke control out slightly for a few
seconds and then continue to push the control in
slowly. This may require an engine warm-up period
from several seconds to several minutes, depending
on the temperature.

MULCHING
o
°
•
Tire chains can not be used when the mower housing is
attached to tractor.
Mower should be properly leveled for best mowing
performance. See "TO 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
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 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.
o
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 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.
MOWING TIPS
•
in the opposite direction making left hand turns until
finished (See Fig. 10 ).
tf 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 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.

TRACTOR
-
Remove mower from tractor for winter storage. When
mower is to be stored for a period of time, clean it thoroughly, remove all dirt, grease, leaves, etc. Store in a
clean, dry area.
-
Clean entire tractor (See"CLEANING"in the Customer
Responsibilities section of this manual).

Inspect and replace belts, if necessary (See belt replacement instructions in the Service and Adjustments
section of this manual).
m
Lubricate as shown in the Customer Responsibilities
section of this manual.
Drain the fuel tank.
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 fue! 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.
Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws are securely
fastened. Inspect moving parts for damage, breakage
and wear. Replace if necessary.
ENGINE
Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand
lightly before painting.
OIL
Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace with clean engine
oil. (See "ENGINE" in the Customer .Responsibilities
section of this manual).
BATTERY
Fully charge the battery for storage.
CYLINDERS
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 BATTERY AND TERMINALS" in the Customer Responsibilities section of this manual).
Remove spark plug(s).
Pour one ounce of oil through spark plug hole(s) into
cylinder(s).
After cleaning, leave cables disconnected and place
cables where they cannot come in contact with battery
terminals.
,
Turn ignitionkey to"START" position for a few seconds
to distribute oil.
-
Replace with new spark plug(s).
OTHER
Be sure battery drain tube is securety attached.
Do not store gasoline from one season to another.
If battery is removed from tractor for storage, do not
store battery directly on concrete or damp surfaces.
o
Replace your gasoline can if your can 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.
•
Cover your tractor with a suitable protective cover that
does not retain moisture. Do not use plastic. Plastic
cannot breathe which allows condensation to form and
will cause your tractor to rust.
