CONTROLS
Motion Control Levers
The machine’s speed and direction are continuously
variable using the two steering controls. The steering
controls can be moved forward or backward about
a neutral position. Furthermore, there is a neutral
position, which is locked if the steering controls are
moved outward.
When both controls are in the neutral position (N), the
machine stands still.
By moving both controls an equal amount forward
or backward, the machine moves in a straight line
forward or backward respectively.
In order, for example, to turn right while moving
forward, move the right control towards the neutral
position. The rotation of the right wheel is reduced and
the machine turns to the right.
Zero turn can be achieved by moving one control
backward (behind the neutral position) and carefully
moving the other steering control forward from its
neutral position. The rotation direction when zero
turning is determined by which steering control is
moved backward behind the neutral position. If the left
steering control is pulled backward, the machine turns
to the left. Use extra care when using this maneuver.
Tracking
If the mower is not tracking straight, check the air
pressure in both rear tires. Recommended air pressure
is 15 psi (1 bar). Tracking must be checked on a flat
and level concrete or blacktop surface. If unit still does
not track straight, contact a Husqvarna dealer for
adjustment.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Experience indicates that alcohol blended
fuels (called gasohol, 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 the
next season. See Storage Instructions for
additional information. Never use engine
or carburetor cleaners in the fuel tank or
permanent damage may occur.

Operation
Read “Safety Instructions” section and following pages, if you are unfamiliar with the machine.
Training
Zero turn mowers are far more maneuverable than typical riding mowers due to their unique steering capabilities.
We suggest that this section be reviewed in its entirety prior to attempting to move the mower under its own
power. Additionally, we suggest when first operating the mower, use a reduced throttle speed and reduced ground
speed by NOT moving control levers to the furthest forward or reverse positions during initial operation, or until
operator becomes comfortable with controls. We also suggest first time users, or new users to Zero Turn mowers
to become familiar with the mower’s movement on a hard surface, such as concrete or blacktop PRIOR to
attempting to operate on turf. Until operator becomes comfortable with mower controls and zero turning capability,
they may damage turf due to overly aggressive maneuvers.
Steering
To move forward and backward
The direction and speed of the mower’s movements is effected by the movement of the control lever(s) on each
side of mower. The left control lever controls the left wheel. The right control lever controls the right wheel.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
When control levers are in the reverse
position they return to neutral when
released. This may cause the mower to
suddenly stop.
First time users should push mower (see “Moving by Hand” in the “Operation” section) to an open, flat area,
without other people or vehicles/obstacles nearby. In order to move unit under its own power, the operator must
be in the seat, start engine (see “Before Starting” in “Operation” section), adjust engine speed to idle, disengage
parking brake, do not engage blades at this time, rotate control levers inward. As long as the control levers
have not been moved forward or backwards, mower will not move. Slowly move both control levers forward
slightly. This will allow mower to start moving forward in a straight line. Pull back on control levers to the neutral
position and mower should stop moving. Pull back slightly on control levers, this will allow mower to start moving
backwards. Push forward on control levers to the neutral position and mower should stop moving.
To turn to the right
While moving in a forward direction, pull the right lever back towards the neutral position while maintaining
the position of the left lever, this will slow the rotation of the right wheel and cause the machine to turn in that
direction.
To turn to the left
While moving in a forward direction pull the left lever back towards the neutral position while maintaining the
position of the right lever, this will slow the rotation of the left wheel and cause the machine to turn in that
direction.
To zero turn
While moving in a forward direction, first pull both control levers back until the mower stops or slows dramatically.
Then by alternating one lever slightly to the forward position and the other in the reverse position.
Before Starting

flame and smoking materials
away from batteries. Always
wear eye protection when
around batteries.
If your battery is too weak to start the engine, it should
be recharged. (See “Battery” in the Maintenance
Section.)
IMPORTANT INFORMATION
Your mower is equipped with a 12-volt
negative grounded system. The other
vehicle must also be a 12-volt negative
grounded system. Do not use your mower
to start other vehicles.
Jumper Cables
If “jumper cables” are used for emergency starting,
follow this procedure:
To attach jumper cables
• Connect each end of the RED cable to the
POSITIVE (+) terminal on each battery,
taking care not to short against chassis.
• Connect one end of the BLACK cable to the
NEGATIVE (-) terminal of the fully charged
battery.
• Connect the other end of the BLACK cable
to a good CHASSIS GROUND on the mower
with the discharged battery, away from the
fuel tank and battery.
To remove cables, reverse order
• Remove BLACK cable first from chassis and
then from the fully charged battery.
• Remove RED cable last from both batteries.

3. Select the cutting height by the cutting height
pedal.
WARNING!
Ensure that no one is near
mower when engaging blade
switch.
4. Engage the mower deck by pulling out the
blade switch.
5. Move throttle control to full throttle (not
choke)
6. The machine’s speed and direction are
continuously variable using the two steering
controls. When both controls are in the
neutral position, the machine stands still.
By moving both controls an equal amount
forward or backward, the machine moves
in a straight line forward or backward
respectively.
In order, for example, to turn right while
moving forward, move the right control
towards the neutral position. The rotation of
the right wheel is reduced and the machine
turns to the right.
Turning on the spot can be achieved by
moving one control backward (behind the
neutral position) and carefully moving the
other steering control forward from its neutral
position.

Mowing Tips
• Observe and flag rocks and other fixed
objects to avoid collisions.
• Begin with a high cutting height and reduce
it until the desired mowing result is attained.
The average lawn should be cut to 2½” (64
mm) during the cool season and over 3” (76
mm) during the hot months. For healthier
and better looking lawns, mow often after
moderate growth.
For best cutting performance, grass over 6”
(15 cm) in height should be mowed twice.
Make the first cut relatively high; the second
to the desired height.
• The mowing result will be best with a high
engine speed (the blades rotate rapidly) and
low speed (the rider moves slowly). If the
grass is not too long and dense, the driving
speed can be increased without negatively
affecting the mowing result.
• The finest lawns are obtained by mowing
often. The lawn becomes more even and
the grass clippings more evenly distributed
over the mown area. The total time taken is
not increased as a higher operating speed
can be used without poor mowing results.
• Avoid mowing wet lawns. The mowing result
is poorer because the wheels sink into
the soft lawn, clumps build, and the grass
clippings fasten under the cowling.
• Hose the mower deck underside with water
after each use. When cleaning, the mower
deck shall be raised into the transport
position. Make sure the mower is cooled
and the engine is off.
• Use compressed air to clean top surface
of the deck. Avoid flooding water on top
surface, engine and electrical components.
• When the mulching kit is used, it is
important that the mowing interval is
frequent.
WARNING!
Clear the lawn of stones and
other objects that can be thrown
out by the blades.
8011-603
Mowing pattern
WARNING!
Never drive the rider on terrain
that slopes more than 10 degrees.
Mow slopes up and down, never
side to side. Avoid sudden
directional changes.

3. Turn ignition switch to “OFF” position and remove the key.
4. Make sure the blades and all moving parts have completely stopped.
5. Disconnect the spark plug wire from all spark plugs and place the wire
where it cannot come in contact with the plug.
Check the tire pressure before adjustment of the
mower deck. See “Checking Tire Pressure” in
Maintenance section. Faulty mower deck adjustments
will cause an uneven mowing result.
WARNING!
Blades are sharp. Protect
your hands with gloves and/
or wrap blades with a heavy
cloth when handling.
To level deck
Adjust the deck while the mower is on a level surface.
Make sure the tires are inflated to the correct pressure.
See “Technical Data” under Transmission. If tires are
under or over inflated, you cannot properly adjust your
deck.
Four slots control the height and pitch of the mower
deck. The deck should be adjusted slightly higher in
the rear.
NOTE: To insure accuracy of leveling procedure, mower deck drive belt must be
installed prior to leveling deck.
1. Wear heavy gloves. Turn each outer blade
tip to align with the deck or in a side-to-side
manner.
2. Measure from the floor surface up to the
bottom of the blade tip on the discharge side of
the mower deck.
Retain this measurement. Move to the opposite
side, check that measurement is the same. If
adjustment is required, loosen the locknut and
move mounting bolt up or down in slot until
both side-to-side measurements are equal.
Retain measurement.

3. Turn both outer blades to align with the deck in
front-to-rear manner. Reposition rear mounting
bolts up or down until rear of mower deck is
positioned level to 1/8" higher in the rear than
the side-to-side measurement.
4. Confirm measurements once again. Blade tips
should be level in a side-to-side manner. In the
rear, blade tips should be level to 1/8" higher
than side-to-side measurement. In the front,
blade tips should be level to 1/8" lower than
side-to-side measurement.
NOTE: This will place the mower deck in
a base measurement position. Additional adjustment may be required
to achieve desired cut for the type of
grass or conditions being mowed.
Nose Roller
Nose rollers are properly adjusted when they are
just slightly off of the ground when the deck is at the
desired cutting height in the operating position. Nose
rollers keep the deck in the proper position to help
prevent scalping in most terrain conditions.
• Adjust the deck to the desired cutting
height (see “TO ADJUST DECK CUTTING
HEIGHT” in the operation section of this
manual).
• Using a 9/16" wrench, remove the nut and
shoulder bolt from the nose roller.
• Lower the roller to the ground, and raise it
up to the next highest hole.
• Replace and tighten the nut and shoulder
bolt.
Be sure to readjust the nose roller if the cutting height
is changed.

MAINTENANCE
Cleaning
Regular cleaning and washing, especially under the
mower deck, will increase the machine’s lifespan.
Make it a habit to clean the machine directly after use
(after it is cooled), before the dirt sticks.
Do not spray water on the top of the mower deck. Use
compressed air to clean the top side of mower deck.
Regularly clean deck and underside of deck, avoid
spraying engine and electrical components with water.
Use protective glasses when
cleaning and washing.

Cleaning
Caster Wheels
Check every 200 hours. Lift front of unit off of ground
so caster wheels can rotate freely. Tighten caster bolt
then back off ½ turn. Check that wheel rotates freely. If
wheel does not rotate freely back the caster bolt off in
¼ turn increments until wheel rotates freely.
Foam filled tires or solid tires will void the warranty.

General
Remove the ignition key to prevent unintentional
movements during lubrication.
When lubricating with an oil can, it must be filled with
engine oil.
When lubricating with grease, unless otherwise stated,
use a high grade molybdenum disulphide grease.
For daily use, the machine should be lubricated twice
weekly.
English-44
Wipe away excess grease after lubrication.
It is important to avoid getting lubricant on the belts
or the drive surfaces on the belt pulleys. Should this
happen, attempt to clean them with spirits. If the belt
continues to slip after cleaning, it must be replaced.
Gasoline or other petroleum products must not be
used to clean belts.
LUBRICATION
Lubricating the Cables
If possible, grease both ends of the cables and move the controls to end stop positions when lubricating. Refit the
rubber covers on the cables after lubrication. Cables with sheaths will bind if they are not lubricated regularly. If a
cable binds, it can disrupt operation.
If a cable binds, remove the cable and hang it vertically. Lubricate it with light engine oil until the oil begins to
escape from the bottom.
Tip: Fill a small plastic bag with oil and tape it so that it seals against the sheath and allow the cable to hang
vertically from the bag overnight. If you do not succeed in lubricating the cable, it must be replaced.
Lubrication Schedule
Front Wheel Mount
Lubricate with a grease gun, one zerk for each wheel
mount, until the grease is forced out.
Use only good quality bearing grease.
Grease from well-known brand names (petrochemical
companies, etc.) usually maintains a good quality.
Front Wheel Bearings
Lubricate with a grease gun, one zerk for each set of
wheel bearings, until the grease is forced out.
Use only good quality bearing grease.

STORAGE
Winter Storage
At the end of the mowing season, the machine should
be readied for storage (or if it will not be in use for
longer than 30 days). Fuel allowed to stand for long
periods of time (30 days or more) can leave sticky
residues that can plug the carburetor and disrupt
engine function.
Fuel stabilizers are an acceptable option as regards to
the sticky residues that can occur during storage.
Add stabilizer to the fuel in the tank or in the storage
container. Always use the mixing ratios specified by
the manufacturer of the stabilizer. Run the engine for
at least 10 minutes after adding the stabilizer so that it
reaches the carburetor. Do not empty the fuel tank and
the carburetor if you have added stabilizer
WARNING!
Never store an engine with
fuel in the tank indoors or in
poorly ventilated spaces where
fuel vapor can come in contact
with open flames, sparks, or a
pilot light such as in a boiler,
hot water tank, clothes drier,
etc. Handle the fuel with care.
It is very flammable and can
cause serious personal injury
and property damage. Drain the
fuel into an approved container
outdoors and far away from
open flame. Never use gasoline
for cleaning. Use a degreaser
and warm water instead.
English-50
To ready the machine for storage, follow these steps:
1. Thoroughly clean the machine, especially
under the mower deck. Touch up damage
to the paint and spray a thin layer of oil on
the underside of the mower deck to avoid
corrosion.
2. Inspect the machine for worn or damaged
parts and tighten any nuts or screws that may
have become loose.
3. Change the engine oil; dispose of properly.
4. Empty the fuel tanks or add a fuel stabilizer.
Start the engine and allow it to run until the
carburetor is drained of fuel or the stabilizer
has reached the carburetor.
5. Remove the spark plug and pour about a
tablespoon of engine oil into the cylinder.
Turn over the engine so that the oil is evenly
distributed and then refit the spark plug.
6. Lubricate all grease zerks, joints, and axles.
7. Remove the battery. Clean, charge, and store
the battery in a cool place, but protect it from
direct cold.
8. Store the machine in a clean, dry place and
cover it for extra protection.
Service
When ordering spare parts, please specify the
purchase year, model, type, and serial number.
Always use genuine Husqvarna spare parts.
An annual check-up at an authorized service workshop
is a good way to ensure that your machine performs its
best the following season.
