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.
1. Depress clutch/brake pedal into full
"BRAKE" position and hold.
2. 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.

STOPPING
MOWER BLADES • To Stop mower blades,move attachment clutch lever to "DISENGAGED"
position.
GROUND DRIVE • To stop ground drive, depress clutch/
brake pedal into full "BRAKE" position.
• Move gearshift lever to neutral (N)
position.
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, before
leaving the operator's position; to empty
grass catcher, etc.
TO USE THROTTLE CONTROL
Always operate engine at full throttle.
• Operating engine at less than full
throttle reduces the battery charging
rate.
• Full throttle offers the best bagging
and mower performance.
TO MOVE FORWARD AND BACKWARD
The direction and speed of movement is
controlled by the gearshift lever.
1. Start tractor with clutch/brake pedal
depressed and gearshift lever in
neutral (N) position.
2. Move gearshift lever to desired
position.
3. Slowly release clutch/brake pedal to
stad movement.
IMPORTANT= Bring tractor to a complete
stop before shifting or changing gears.
Failure to do so will shorten the useful life
of your transaxle.
TO ADJUST MOWER CU'I-rlNG HEIGHT
The position of the attachment lift lever
determines the cutting height.
• Grasp lift lever.
• Press plunger with thumb and move
lever to desired position.
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.
• Move throttle control to slow position.
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.
13
• 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 property 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.
NOTE: Adjust gauge wheels with tractor
on a flat level surface.
1. Adjust mower to desired cutting height
(See "TO ADJUST MOWER CUTTING
HEIGHT" in the Operation section of
this manual).
2. With mower in desired height of cut
position, gauge wheels should be
assembled so they are slightly off the
ground. _nsta_l gauge wheel in
appropriate hole with shoulder bolt, 3/
8 washer, and 3/8-16 Iocknut and
tighten securely.
3. Repeat for opposite side installing
gauge wheel in same adjustment

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.
BEFORE STARTINGTHE
ENGINE
CHECK 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. Unthread and remove oil fill cap/
dipstick; wipe oil off. Reinsert the
dipstick into the tube and rest oil fill
cap on the tube. Do not thread the
cap onto the tube. 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 "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. 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.
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 or permanent damage may occur.
CAUTION: Fill to bottom of gas tank
filler neck. Do not overfill. Wipe off any
spilled oil or fuel. Do not store, spill or
use gasoline near an open flame.
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 clutclVbrake 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 choke position.
NOTE: Before starting, read the warm and
cold starting procedures below.
5. 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, move throttle control to fast
position, wait a few minutes and try
again. If engine still does not start, move
the throttle control back to the choke
position and retry.
WARM WEATHER STARTING (50° F and
above)
6. When engine starts, move the throttle
control to the fast position.
• 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.
15
COLD WEATHER STARTING ( 50+ F and
below)
6. When engine starts, allow engine to
run with the throttle control in the
choke position until the engine runs
roughly, then move throttle control to
fast position. This may require an
engine warm-up pedod from several
seconds to several minutes, depending on the temperature,
• The attachments can also be used
dudng the engine warm-up period.
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
MOWINGTIPS
• 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.
• E)dve 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 cltppings and more uniform
cutting.
• When mowing large areas, start by
tuming to the right so that clippings will
discharge away from shrubs, fences,
driveways, etc. After one or two
rounds, mow in the oppositedirection
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 wilt p_ug mower and {eave
undesirable clumps. Allow grass to dry
before mowing.
• Always operate engine at full throttle
when mowing to assure better mowing
performance end proper discharge of
material. Regulate ground speed by
selecting a low enough gear to give the
mower cutting performance as weir 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
MOWINGTIPS
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
eady 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 mew slewty.
• 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.

TO SHARPEN BLADE
NOTE: We do not recommend sharpening blade - but if you do, be sure the
blade is balanced.
Care should be taken to keep the blade
balanced. An unbalanced blade will
cause excessive vibration and eventual
damage to mower and engine,
• 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
balancer. (When using a cone balancer, follow the instructions supplied
with balancer.)
NOTE: Do not use a nail for balancing
blade. The lobes of the center hole may
appear to be centered, but are not.
• Slide blade on to an unthreaded
portion of the steel bolt or pin and hold
the bolt 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,

Maintenance, repair, or replacement of the
emission control devices and systems, which
are being done at the customers expense,
may be performed by any non-read engine
repair establishment or individual. Warranty
repairs must be performed by an authorized
engine manufacturer's service outlet.
TO ADJUST THROTTLE CONTROL
CABLE
The throttlecontrol has been preset at the
factoryand adjustmentshould not be
necessary. Check adjustment as described
below before loosening cable. If adjustment is
necessary, proceed as follows:
1. With engine not running, move throttle
control lever from slow to choke position.
Slowly move lever from choke to fast
position.
2. Check to see if hole in throttle lever and
hole in speed control bracket are aligned.
3. If holes are not arigned, loosen cable
clamp screw and align the holes by
insadleg a pencil or a 1/4" drill bit through
both holes.
4. Pull throttle cable up to remove slack and
tighten cable clamp screw. Remove
alignment pencil or ddlf bit.
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, aififude or load. If the carburetor
does need adjustment, proceed as follows:
In general, turning the adjusting needles in
(dockwisa) decreases the supply of fuel to
the engine giving a leaner fueVair mixture.
Turning the adjusting needles out (counterclockwise) increases the supply of fuel to the
engine giving a richer fueVair mixture.
IMPORTANT: Damage to the needles and
seats in carburetor may result if 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 _Vrth)nthe limits
allowed by the cap. Do not attempt to remove
the limiter cap. The rimitercap cannot be
removed without breaking the adjusting
needle.
1. Be sure you have a clean air tilter and the
throttle control cable is adjusted properly
(see above).
2. Stad engine and allow to warm for five
minutes. Make adjustments with engine
running and shift/motion control lever in
neutral (N) posiflen.
3. Idle soeed 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.
4. Idle fuel needle setting - With throttle
control lever in slow position, turn idle fuel
adjustment needle in (ck:_'k-,Mse)
until
engine begins to die and then fum out
(counterclockwise) until engine runs
rough. Ture needle to a point midway
between those two positions.
5. Recheck idle speed. Readjust if neces°
sery.
ACCELERATION TEST 6. Move throttle osntrol lever frem slew to
fast position. If engine hesitates or dies,
turn idle fuel adjusting needle out
(counterclockwise) 1/8 turn. Repeat test
and continue to adjust, if necessary, until
engine accelerates 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 a Sears or other qualified
seniJce center, which has proper equipment and experience to make any
necessary adjustments.

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.
hose, or tank during storage. Also,
experiance 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 and engine
while in storage.
1. Drain the fuel tank.
2. 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.
ENGINEOIL
Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace
with clean engine oil. (See "ENGINE" in
the Maintenance section of this manual).
CYLINDER(S)
1. Remove spark plug(s).
2. Pour one ounce of oil through spark
plug hole(s) into cylinder(s).
3. Tum ignition key to "START" position
for a few seconds to distribute oil,
4, Replace with new spark plug(s).
OTHER
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 trac/or 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.
1. Clean entire tractor (See "CLEANING"
in the Maintenance section of this
manual).
2. Inspect and replace belts, if necessary
(See belt replacement instructions in
the Service and Adjustments section
of this manual),
3. Lubricate as shown in the Maintenance section of this manual.
4. Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws
are securely fastened. Inspect moving
paris for damage, breakage and wear.
Replace if necessary.
5. Touch up all rusted or chipped paint
surfaces; sand lightly before painting.
BATFERY
• 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 BATTERY 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.
ENGINE
FUEL SYSTEM
• Do not store gasoline from one season
to another.
• 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.
IMPORTANT:
Never cover tractor while
engine and exhaust areas are still warm.
IMPORTANT: It is important to prevent
gum deposites from forming in essential
fuel system parts such as carburetor, fuel
