CHECKS
Adjust the belt and cable control tension after the first few working hours to
compensate initial loosening.
Briefly operate all the machine's components to detect any abnormal noises
or overheating.
During the initial running in period avoid heavy-duty usage to encourage
proper settling of the mechanical parts.
Never neglect maintenance operations after work and carry out all prescribed checks regularly.
A)
TIRE PRESSURE
Regularly check the tire pressure. If both sets of tires are not inflated to average
pressure the machine will tend to travel sideways during operation.
B)
CABLE CONTROL ADJUSTMENT
To adjust the cables place the machine on flat ground, switch off the engine and
disconnect the wire from the spark plug.
B1)BLADE CONTROL CABLE
Make sure that there is no play between the upper end of the cable and the adjustment screw. If there is, or if the cable has stretched, restore to ideal position using the relative adjustment screw(Fig. 5, ref. A)
If adjustment using the relative screw proves ineffective, the belts, and hence the
engine mounting, must be adjusted. To perform this operation refer to section 14C
“ BELT REPLACEMENT AND ADJUSTMENT” of this manual.
B2) FORWARD CONTROL CABLE
Make sure that there is no play between the upper end of the cable and the adjustment screw. If there is, or if the cable has stretched, restore to ideal position using the relative adjustment screw ( Fig. 5, ref. A).
If adjustment using the relative screw proves ineffective, the belts, and hence the
engine mounting, must be adjusted. To perform this operation refer to section 14 C
“ BELT REPLACEMENT AND ADJUSTMENT” of this manual
Fig.5
370310
F112003A
19
C)BELT REPLACEMENT AND ADJUSTMENT
Switch off the engine and disconnect the spark plug wire before carrying out
any maintenance or repair work on the machine.
If a belt is worn or breaks it should be replaced as follows:
-
remove the metal guard ( fig. 6 ref. A), by unscrewing and taking out the screws
shown in figure 6 ref. B and C.
C1)BLADE BELT
Disconnect the connecting rod (Fig. 7 Ref. B) by removing the nut and
loosening the screw that secure it to the arm (Fig. 7 Ref. C)
- Once the connecting rod has been disconnected the belt can be slipped off
(Fig. 7 Ref. A) by manually turning the relative lower pulley anticlockwise (Fig. 7
Ref. D).
- To fit the new belt follow the procedure in the reverse order.
- Afterwards check that the belt is correctly positioned by using the relative blade
control lever. When this lever is lowered and the belt is at maximum tension,
the distance between the belt and the relative belt guides (Fig. 7 Ref. E) should
be approximately 2 mm.
- Then make sure that the belt works properly by tugging lightly on the selfwinding starter cable with the engine switched off and the spark plug wire
disconnected. If everything is working properly the pulley will turn on the engine
but will not engage the belt.
If the belt engages push the engine back slightly towards the rear of the
machine (in the direction of the handlebars) until the belt is in the correct
position.
C2)FORWARD CONTROL BELT
Remove the blade control belt following the instructions given in the preceding
paragraph.
- Remove the blade (Fig.1 Ref. G) following the instructions provided in the
section entitled “Blade removal and replacement”.
- Then remove the forward control belt from the lower pulley by turning the belt
anticlockwise (Fig. 8 Ref. A e B)
- To fit the new belt follow the procedure in the reverse order.
- Afterwards check that the belt is positioned and working correctly using the
relative forward control lever. When this lever is lowered and the belt is at
maximum tension, the distance between the belt and the relative belt guides
(Fig. 8 Ref. C) should be approximately 2 mm.
- Then make sure that the belt works properly by tugging lightly on the selfwinding starter cable with the engine switched off and the spark plug wire
disconnected. If everything is working properly the pulley will turn on the engine
but will not engage the belt.
If the belt engages push the engine back slightly towards the rear of the
machine (in the direction of the handlebars) until the belt is in the correct
position.

D) SERVICE BRAKE CONTROL LEVER
The service brake (Fig. 9 Ref. A) is connected to the forward control lever (Fig. 1
Ref. C).
With the forward control lever released and the brake engaged ensure that there is
play of approximately 2 or 3 mm between the adjustment screw and the brake
cable (Fig. 9 Ref B and C)
WARNING. If there is no such play restore it immediately since the brake will
not stop the machine once the forward control lever is released.
Make sure that the front part of the brake in direct contact with the pulley
(Fig. 9 Ref. D) is not worn. If so, replace it.
E) CHECKING AND REPLACING THE BLADE
Always check the state of the blade before commencing work. Do not forget to
switch the engine off!
-
-
-
During work operations if the blade (Fig. 10, ref. A ) Strikes stones or
stumps stop straightaway and make sure that it has not become bent or
broken. A damaged blade must be replaced.
If the blade is very worn, cracked or bent, it may snap and project objects
outwards, risking serious accident.
Use heavy-duty work gloves to check or replace the blade to avoid risk of injury to hands.
The blade fixing screws and relative nuts are also subject to wear. Always
replace them at the same time as the blade, using bolts and screws of the
same strength and type.
The blade wears more quickly on dry, sandy ground. In these conditions it
should be replaced more frequently.
To remove the blade proceed as follows:
1. Switch off the engine and disconnect the spark plug wire

!
All operations on the machine must be carried out exclusively by authorized
personnel.
Always switch off the engine when checking, adjusting or servicing the machine.
Allow the machine to cool down before inspection.
The cover ( Fig. 1 ref. F) must always be correctly installed and intact. If it becomes damaged, have it repaired before the machine is used again.
Make sure that all the guards of rotating and moving parts are in place.
For greater safety, when replacing the blade replace all the fixing screws and
nuts at the same time, as described in section 14, point D.
Inspect the fuel lines. These should be replaced if damaged or after a maximum of three years, along with the fixing bands. Old lines may leak fuel.
Check and regularly adjust the forward clutch control, blade clutch control, and
accelerator.
Cover the machine with a sheet after the engine and silencer have cooled
down.
It is strictly forbidden to place/leave unattended on the sod cutter any potentially
dangerous objects which may put the safety of persons or the machine at risk.
Keep the machine in a good, clean state; do not leave it outside exposed to inclement weather conditions.
After use store the machine in a place where children have no access. Always
allow the machine to cool down before putting it away.

!
!
After use store the machine in a place where fuel vapours cannot reach a naked flame or sparks.
In the instance of a long period of non-use, drain the fuel tank completely.
Use of the machine does not require specific lighting.
However, the recommended minimum amount of light (e.g. 200 lux) to be able to
read the notices on the machine and to operate it without running risks caused by
poor light.
CHECKING AND REPLACING THE TRANSMISSION OIL.
Check the transmission oil level using the relative oil level screw ( fig. 11 ref. C). If
oil leaks out upon removal of this screw then there is enough of it in the transmission. If not, remove the filling cap shown in fig. 11 ref. A, then top up with SAE 90.
The oil should be replaced after the first 20 hours of use and after this every 100
working hours.
Remove the drainage cap shown in fig. 11 ( ref. B) and allow all the oil to run out.
After refitting the drainage cap, fill the transmission from the filling cap with SAE 90
transmission oil.
Refit the lid securely to prevent any leakage of oil.
