HOW TO USE YOUR TRACTOR
TO MOVE FORWARD
(See Fig, 8)
TO SET PARKING
The direction and speed of movement is controlled by the
gearshift lever,
•
Start tractor with clutch!brake pedal depressed and
gearshift lever in neutral (N) position.
o Move gearshift lever to desired position.
= Slowly release clutch/brake pedal to start 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.,

(See Fig. 8)
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.
o Depress clutch/brake pedal into full "BRAKE" 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.
o 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 heatthier and better looking
lawns, mow often and after moderate growth.
o 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.

WARNING:
Experience indicates that alcohol blended
fuels (calted gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can
attract moisture which Ieads 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 Ionger. 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.

MULCHING
.
Move throttle control to fast (.f_) position
•
Allow engine to warm up for a few minutes before
engaging drive or attachments,.
IMPORTANT:
FOR BEST PERFORMANCE,
KEEP
MOWER HOUSING FREE OF BUILT-UP GRASS AND
TRASH CLEAN AFTER EACH USE,
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.
Tire chains cannot be used when the mower housing
is attached to tractor.
.
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,
.
o
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 wilt
biodegrade quickly to provide nutrients for the lawn.
Always mulch with your highest engine (blade) speed
as this will provide the best recurring 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 early afternoon.
At this time the grass has dried and the newly cut area
will not be exposed to the direct sun,
o
For best results, adjust the mower cutting height so that
the mower cuts off only the top one-third of the grass
blades (See Fig. 11).. For extremely heavy mulching,
reduce your width of cut on each pass and mow slowly.
Drive so that clippings are discharged onto the area
that has been cut. Have the cut area to the right of the
machine. This will result in _amore 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 (See Fig 10 )4
o
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°
o
Do not mow grass when it is wet. Wet grass will plug
mower and leave undesirable clumps. Allow grass to
dry before mowing,.
°
TIPS
o
MOWING TIPS
=
MOWING
MAX 1/3
FIG. 1 !
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_
14
o
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,.
