3. OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS
3.1 CONTROLS
3.1.1
Familiarize yourself with all controls before operating the mower.
3.1.2
Motion Control Levers: Located on each side of the console. The left lever
controls the flow of hydraulic oil from the left hydrostatic pump to the left drive
wheel motor. The right lever controls the flow of hydraulic oil from the right
hydrostatic pump to the right drive wheel motor.
IMPORTANT: To begin movement (forward or backward) the operator must
be in the seat, the brake lever must be disengaged (pushed down) before
the motion control levers can be moved in or the engine will kill.
When levers are centered in the T-slot the drive system is in the neutral position.
With levers moved out in the T-slot the drive system is in the neutral lock position
See Figure 2.
FIGURE 2
By moving both levers an equal amount forward or back from the neutral position
the machine can be caused to move forward or backward in a straight line.
Movement of the left lever forward will cause the left drive wheel to rotate in a
forward direction. Movement of the right lever forward will cause the right
drive wheel to rotate in a forward direction. To stop forward travel, pull the
levers back to the neutral position.
To turn left while moving forward, move the left lever back toward neutral to
slow the left drive wheel.
To turn right while moving forward, move the right lever back toward neutral to
slow the right drive wheel.

has all necessary lighting and marking as required by law. Secure the trailer with a
safety chain.
CAUTION
POTENTIAL HAZARD
♦ This unit does not have proper turn
signals, lights, reflective markings, or a
slow moving vehicle emblem. These
items are required to drive on a public
street or roadway.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
♦ Driving on a street or roadway without
such equipment is dangerous and can
lead to accidents causing personal injury.
♦ Driving on a street or roadway without
such equipment may also be a violation of
State laws and the operator may be
subject to traffic tickets and/or fines.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
♦
Do not drive a unit on a public street or
roadway.
19
WARNING
POTENTIAL HAZARD
♦ Loading a unit on a trailer or truck
increases the possibility of tip-over.
WHAT CAN HAPPEN
♦ Tip-over of the unit could cause serious
injury or death.
HOW TO AVOID THE HAZARD
♦ Use extreme caution when operating a
unit on a ramp.
♦ Use only a single, full width ramp; DO
NOT use individual ramps for each side of
the unit.
♦ If individual ramps must be used, use
enough ramps to create an unbroken
ramp surface wider than the unit.
♦ DO NOT exceed a 15° angle between
ramp and ground or between ramp and
trailer or truck.
♦ Avoid sudden acceleration while driving
unit on a ramp.
3.4.2
Loading a Unit: Use extreme caution when loading units on trailers or trucks. One
full width ramp is required. If it is not possible to use one full width ramp, use
enough individual ramps to simulate a full width continuous ramp.
Ramp should be long enough so that the angles between the ramp and the ground
and the ramp and the trailer or truck do not exceed 15°. A steeper angle may
cause mower deck components to get caught as the unit moves from ramp to
trailer or truck. Steeper angles may also cause the unit to tip. If loading on or
near a slope, position the trailer or truck so it is on the down side of the slope and
the ramp extends up the slope. This will minimize the ramp angle. The trailer or
truck should be as level as possible.
DO NOT attempt to turn the unit while on the ramp, you may lose control and drive
off the side.
Avoid sudden acceleration when driving on a ramp.

6.1 MOWER PULLS LEFT OR RIGHT (WITH LEVERS FULLY FORWARD).
a)
b)
Refer to Tracking Adjustment Section 4.2.5
Check air pressure in drive tires.
For 20 and 23 HP Kohler Units: The drive tires should be inflated to
13 psi (90 kpa).
For 27 HP Koher Units: The drive tires should be inflated to 9 psi (62 kpa)
For All Units: Semi-pneumatic casters do not require inflation.
6.2 MOWER CUTS UNEVENLY.
a)
b)
c)
Check air pressure in drive tires.
For 20 and 23 HP Kohler Units: The drive tires should be inflated to
13 psi (90 kpa).
For 27 HP Koher Units: The drive tires should be inflated to 9 psi (62 kpa)
For All Units: Semi-pneumatic casters do not require inflation.
A more uniform cutting height may be obtained with higher tire pressure on
rough terrain. A lower tire pressure provides more flotation.
Check deck leveling (See Adjustments in Deck Manual).
Note: The front of the mower deck will be approximately 1/4” lower than the
back of the mower deck. This is the “rake” of the deck.
Check the distance from the bottom edge of the deck skirt to the tip of each
blade. Measurement should be consistent between all blade tips.
35
6.3 ENGINE WILL NOT START.
a) Make sure the battery has a full charge. See section 4.1.2 for charging
instructions.
b) Be sure the throttle control is midway between the “SLOW” and “FAST”
positions, and the choke is in the “ON” position for a cold engine or the “OFF”
position for a warm engine.
c) Make sure there is fuel in the fuel tank and that the fuel valve is open.
d) Make sure the parking brake is set and motion control levers in the neutral
position.
e) Check that the PTO is disengaged, park brake is engaged and motion
control is in “Neutral”.
f) Check that the spark plug wires are properly connected.
g) Check for loose or faulty wiring connections.
h) Check for corrosion at all wiring connections. Even minor corrosion may
cause a faulty connection. Clean connector terminals thoroughly with
electrical contact cleaner, apply dielectric grease and reconnect.
i) Check safety switch adjustment (See Section 4.2.5).
NOTE: When disconnecting electrical connectors DO NOT pull on the
wires to separate the connectors.
NOTE: After carefully checking the above steps, attempt to start the
engine. If it does not start, contact your authorized Exmark service dealer.
IMPORTANT: It is essential that all operator safety mechanisms be
connected and in proper operating condition prior to mower use.
When a problem occurs, do not overlook the simple causes. For example:
starting problems could be caused by an empty fuel tank.
The following table lists some of the common causes of trouble. Do not attempt
to service or replace major items or any items that call for special timing of
adjustments procedures (such as valves, governor, etc.). Have this work done
by your Engine Service Dealer.
