unless
abso-
lutely necessary.
Always look down
and behind before and while backing.
Never direct discharged
material
toward anyone. Avoid discharging
material against a wall or obstruction.
Material may ricochet back toward the
operator. Stop the blades when crossing gravel surfaces.
Do not operate machine without the
entire grass catcher, discharge guard,
or other safety devices in place and
working.
Slowdown
before turning.
Never leave a running machine
unattended.
Always turn off blades,
set parking brake, stop engine, and

come to a complete stop before cleaning the machine, removing the grass
catcher, or unclogging
the discharge
guard.

good artificial light.
Do not operate the machine while
under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Watch for traffic when operating near
or crossing roadways.
Use extra care when loading or unloading the machine into a trailer or truck.
Always wear eye protection when operating machine.
Data indicates that operators, age 60
years and above, are involved in a
large percentage
of riding mower-related injuries. These operators should
evaluate their ability to operate the
riding mower safely enough to protect
themselves
and others from serious
injury.
Follow the manufacturer's
recommendation for wheel weights or counterweights.
Keep machine free of grass, leaves or
other debris build-up which can touch
hot exhaust / engine parts and burn.
Do not allow the mower deck to plow
leaves or other debris which can cause
build-up to occur. Clean any oil or fuel
spillage before operating or storing the
machine. Allow machine to cool before
storage.
II. SLOPE
OPERATION
Slopes are a major factor related to loss of
control and tip-over accidents, which can
result in severe injury or death. Operation on all slopes requires extra caution.
If
you cannot back up the slope or if you feel
uneasy on it, do not mow it.
•
Mow up and down slopes, not across.
•
Watch for holes, ruts, bumps, rocks, or
other hidden objects.
Uneven terrain
could overturn the machine.
Tall grass
can hide obstacles.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Choose a low ground speed so that
you will not have to stop or shift while
on the slope.
Do not mow on wet grass.Tires
may
lose traction.
Always keep the machine in gear when
going down slopes. Do not shift to
neutral and coast downhill.
Avoid starting, stopping, or turning on
a slope. If the tires lose traction,
disengage the blades and proceed slowly
straight down the slope.
Keep all movement
on the slopes slow
and gradual.
Do not make sudden
changes in speed or direction, which
could cause the machine to roll over.
Use extra care while operating machine with grass catchers or other attachments;
they can affect the stability
of the machine. Do no use on steep
slopes.
Do not try to stabilize the machine by
putting your foot on the ground.
Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches,
or embankments.
The machine could
suddenly roll over if a wheel is over the
edge or if the edge caves in.
II1. CHILDREN
Tragic accidents
can occur if the operator
is not alert to the presence
of children.
Children are often attracted to the machine
and the mowing
activity.
Never assume
that children will remain where you last
saw them.
•
Keep children out of the mowing area
and in the watchful care of a responsible adult other than the operator.
•
Be alert and turn machine off if a child
enters the area.
•
Before and while backing, look behind
and down for small children.
•
•
•
Never carry children, even with the
blades shut off. They may fall off and
be seriously injured or interfere with
safe machine operation.

CHECK
STARTING
ENGINE
THE
TO START ENGINE
When starting the engine for the first time
or if the engine has run out of fuel, it will
take extra cranking time to move fuel from
the tank to the engine.
1. Sit on seat in operating position,
depress clutch/brake pedal and set
parking brake.
2. Place gear shift lever in neutral (N)
position.
3. Move attachment clutch to disengaged
position.
4. Move throttle control to fast position
5. Pull choke control out for a cold engine
start attempt. For a warm engine start
attempt the choke control may not be
needed.
NOTE: Before starting, read the warm and
cold starting procedures below.
6. Insert key into ignition and turn key
clockwise to start position and release
key as soon as engine starts. Do
not run starter continuously for more
than fifteen seconds per minute. If the
engine does not start after several
attempts, push choke control in, wait
a few minutes and try again. If engine
still does not start, pull the choke control out and retry.
WARM WEATHER STARTING (50 ° F and
above)
7. When engine starts, slowly push choke
control in until the engine begins to
run smoothly. 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.
• The attachments and ground drive can
now be used. If the engine does not
accept the load, restart the engine and
allow it to warm up for one minute using
the choke as described above.
ENGINE
OIL LEVEL
The engine in your tractor has been
shipped, from the factory, already filled
with summer weight oil.
1. Check engine oil with tractor on level
ground.
2. Remove oil fill cap/dipstick
and wipe
clean, reinsert the dipstick and screw
cap tight, wait for a few seconds, remove and read oil level. If necessary,
add oil until "FULl" mark on dipstick is
reached.
Do not overfill.
• For cold weather operation you should
change oil for easier starting (See the
oil viscosity chart in the Maintenance
section of this manual).
• To change engine oil, see the Maintenance section in this manual.
ADD GASOLINE
• Fill fuel tank to bottom of tank filler neck.
Do not overfill. 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.
_i_CAUTION:
Wipe off any spilled oil or
fuel. Do not store, spill or use gasoline
near an open flame.
IMPORTANT:
When operating in temperatures below 32°F(0°C),
use fresh, clean
winter grade gasoline to help insure good
cold weather starting.
CAUTION:
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.

MOWING
TIPS
• 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 already 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.
COLD WEATHER
STARTING (50 ° F and
below)
7. 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.
• The attachments
can be used during
the engine warm-up period and may
require the choke control be pulled out
slightly.
NOTE: If at a high altitude (above 3000
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).
f
]1

(

• 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 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.
