1. Check each item under Before Each
Use in the MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
on page 15.
2. Open fuel shutoff valve (911102, 141).
3. For engines with a primer, push primer
bulb 2 or 3 times for a cold engine.
NOTE: It is unnecessary to prime or choke a
warm engine.
4. For engines with a throttle, place throttle
control in the choke position. Once the
engine has started, place throttle in the
high speed detent.
5. With engine/blade control held against
the handlebar, grasp starter handle and
pull rope slowly until it pulls harder. This
is the compression stroke. Let rope
rewind slowly.
6. Pull rope with rapid continuous full arm
stroke to start engine. Allow rope to
rewind slowly.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT let starter handle
snap against bracket.
7. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until engine starts.
(If engine does not start, see
TROUBLESHOOTING on page 23.)
For best mulching performance, cut no more
than 1 inch (2.54 cm) of grass per cutting.
STARTING AND SHUT OFF

CHECK ENGINE/BLADE
CONTROL
The engine and blade must stop within 3
seconds after releasing the control. If the
engine and blade continue to run, adjust or
repair control immediately.
See Figure 9.
Check blade mounting: blade must be secure
and bolt torqued to 37.5 - 50 lbf-ft
(51-68 N•m) (bolt should fully compress lock
washer).
Check blade for nicks and dull cutting edges.
Sharpen if necessary.
Check blade for rounded or broken ends,
thinned metal or other damage. Replace if
necessary.
NOTE: Blades should be sharpened and
balanced professionally. Contact your Ariens
Dealer.
To remove blade:
1. Stop engine, wait for all moving parts to
stop, and disconnect spark plug wire.
2. Block blade to prevent rotation.
3. Remove bolt, lock washer, flat washer
and blade from shaft.
GB - 15
To install blade:
1. Replace blade, flat washer, lock washer
and bolt on shaft.
2. Torque bolt to 37.5 - 50 lbf-ft
(51-68 N•m) (bolt should fully compress
lock washer).
3. Connect spark plug wire.
Sharpen the Mower Blades
DO NOT Sharpen to This Pattern

CAUTION: DO NOT sharpen
mower blades while on unit. An
imbalanced mower blade will
cause excessive vibration and
eventual damage to unit. Check
mower blade balance before
reinstalling blades.
NEVER weld or straighten bent
blades.
DISCARD If More
Than 1/2 in. (1.27 cm)
1. Remove mower blade from unit.
Discard mower blade if:
• More than 1/2 in. (1.27 cm) of metal is
removed.
• Air lifts become eroded.
• Blade is bent or broken.

equal amount of material from each end
of mower blade. DO NOT change angle
of cutting edge or round the corner of the
mower blade.

CHANGE ENGINE OIL
IMPORTANT: Change engine crankcase oil
after first five (5) hours of operation. Then
change oil after every 25 hours of operation.
Refer to engine manual for instructions and
proper oil type.
IMPORTANT: Proper oil level must be
maintained at all times or engine damage will
result. DO NOT overfill. Be sure engine is
level when adding oil.
Figure 12
OM1282
CHECK SPARK PLUG
GENERAL LUBRICATION
Spark plug should be replaced every 100
hours of operation or each year.
NOTE: Loose spark plug wire terminals can
cause sparking. Replace terminal if
damaged.
REPLACE OIL FILTER (911141)
CHECK ENGINE COOLING
Replace oil filter every 100 hours of use or
every season.
1. Change engine oil.
2. Clean around filter.
3. Turn filter counterclockwise to remove
(Figure 11).
4. Apply a thin coat of oil onto seal of new
filter.
5. Install new filter and hand tighten
securely.
WARNING: HOT SURFACES can
cause death or serious injury. DO
NOT TOUCH parts which are hot
from operation. ALWAYS allow
parts to cool.
To prevent overheating, air must circulate
freely around the cooling fins, cylinder head
and block.
Every 100 hours of operation or yearly (more
often if conditions require) remove blower
housing and clean cooling fins. See engine
manual for instructions.
CHECK MUFFLER
Check muffler for debris, cracks, wear, or
other damage.
CAUTION: Replace worn-out
mufflers immediately. Continued
use could result in fire or explosion.

ADJUSTMENT (911134)
(self-propelled models)
To remove drive belt:
1. Disconnect spark plug wire.
2. Set the right rear wheel to its lowest
cutting height, and the left rear wheel to
the third cutting height. This position
provides clearance between friction disc
and drive sheave.
3. Remove belt from the idler, then the
drive sheave, and finally, the engine
pulley (Figure 15).
4. Pull belt through opening under mower
pan and over blade.
5. Make sure the idler pulley turns and the
idler arm moves freely.
6. Reinstall drive belt in reverse order.
IMPORTANT: Be sure the belt seats in
sheave and pulley grooves with the idler
touching the back (flat) side of belt.
7. Adjust rear wheels to the same cutting
height.
To adjust engine/blade control:
1. Loosen cable nuts away from bracket.

See Figure 16.
NOTE: When the wheel drive control is
disengaged, the gap between the friction disc
and the aluminum drive plate should be
approximately .030" (0.7mm). See Figure 16.
OM1030
6. Engage engine/blade control. Measure
distance between middle of z-bend and
cable bracket. Measurement should be
as shown below.

Figure 16

7. For Honda engines: Disengage
engine/blade control and make sure
there is adequate freeplay in the cable.
Measurement should be as shown
below.
0.4" – 0.6" (10 – 15 mm)
OM1052
8. If correct measurement cannot be set,
contact your local dealer.
Check the adjustment with the engine off and
with the engine on:
1. With the engine off and the wheel drive
control disengaged, push the mower
forward in both fast and slow speed
settings.
If the mower pushes freely, the gap
between the friction disc and aluminum
drive plate is sufficient. If the mower is
difficult to push or the rear wheels drag,
increase the gap between the friction
disc and aluminum drive plate.
2. With the engine on, the mower should
start moving as soon as the wheel drive
control begins to pull on the cable.
If the wheel drive control requires a long
travel before the mower begins to pull,
decrease the gap between the friction
disc and aluminum drive plate.
To increase the gap between the friction disc
and the aluminum drive plate:
1. Loosen the lower cable nut on the wheel
drive control cable, and then tighten the
upper cable nut against the adjuster
bracket. See Figure 17.
GB - 20
2. Check the adjustment and readjust as
needed.
NOTE: If the gap between the friction disc
and aluminum drive plate cannot be adjusted
to this tolerance, take the unit to an
authorized service dealer for repairs.
To increase the
gap, loosen the
lower cable nut.
SPEED CONTROL BELL CRANK
(self-propelled models)
Then tighten the
upper cable nut
against the
bracket.
Figure 17
To decrease the gap between the friction disc
and the aluminum drive plate:
1. Loosen the upper cable nut on the wheel
drive control cable, and then tighten the
lower cable nut against the adjuster
bracket. See Figure 18.
The speed control bell crank holds the speed
control rod in position after a speed has been
set. The spring washers may become loose
with normal wear. If the speed control rod
does not stay firmly in position, adjust the
speed control bell crank. See Figure 19.
To adjust:
1. Remove cover, fully compress the
helical spring lock washers with lock
nut and then back lock nut off, one
quarter turn.
2. If the speed control rod is still too
loose, tighten lock nut by small
increments until it holds its position.
Tightening the lock nut too much will
not allow the speed control rod to
move at all.
3. Align notch in left hand side of cover
with bolt and secure with knob.

LIMITATION OF REMEDY AND
DAMAGES
DISCLAIMER OF FURTHER
WARRANTY
Ariens Company’s liability under this warranty,
and under any implied warranty that may exist, is
limited to repair of any defect in workmanship,
and repair or replacement of any defective part.
Ariens Company shall not be liable for incidental,
special, or consequential damages (including
lost profits). Some states do not allow the
exclusion of incidental or consequential
damages, so the above limitation or exclusion
may not apply to you.
Ariens Company makes no warranty, express
or implied, other than what is expressly made in
this warranty. If the law of your state provides
that an implied warranty of merchantability, or an
implied warranty of fitness for particular purpose,
or any other implied warranty, applies to Ariens
Company, then any such implied warranty is
limited to the duration of this warranty. Some
states do not allow limitations on how long an
implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation
may not apply to you.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary
from state to state.
