- 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
dweather starting.
ARNtNG: 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
choke position and retry..
WARM WEATHER STARTING (50 ° F and
above)
o 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.
COLD WEATHER STARTING ( 50 ° F and
below)
o 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 warmup period from several seconds to several minutes, depending on the temperature.

PURGE TRANSMISSION
,_CAUTION: Never engage or'disengage freewheel lever while the engine is
running.
To ensure proper operation and performance, it is recommended that the transmission be purged before operating tractor
for the first time. This procedure will
remove any trapped air inside the transmission which may have developed during
shipping of your tractor.
iMPORTANT: Should your transmission
require removal for service or replacement, it should be purged after reinstallation before operating the tractor.
o Place tractor safely on level surface with
engine off and parPJngbrake set.
o Disengage transmission by placing freewheel control in freewheeling position
(See =TO TRANSPORT" in this section
of manual).
o Sitting in the tractor seat, start engine.
After the engine is running, move throttle control to slow position° With motion
control lever in neutral (N) position,
slowly disengage clutch/brake pedal.
° Move motion control lever to full forward
position and hold for five (5) seconds.
Move lever to full reverse position and
hold for five (5) seconds. Repeat this
procedure three (3) times,
NOTE: During this procedure there will be
no movement of drive wheels. The air is
being removed from hydraulic ddve sys,o
tern.
o Move motion control lever to neutral (N)
position. Shut off engine and set parking
brake.
° Engage transmission by placing freewheel control in driving position (See
'qO TRANSPORT" in this section of
manual).
o Sitting in the tractor seat, start engine.
After the engine is running, move throttle control to half (1/2) speed. With
motion control lever in neutral (N) position, slowly disengage clutch/brake
pedal.
o Slowly move motion control lever forward; after thetractor moves approximately five (5) feet, slowly move motion
control lever to reverse position. After
the tractor moves approximately five (5)
feet return the motion control lever to
the neutral (N) position. Repeat this pro-
o 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.
o The left hand side of mower should be
used for* trimming.
• Drive so that clippings are discharged onto
the area that has been cuL Have the cut area
to the right of the tractor.This will result in a
more even distribution
ofclippings
and more
uniform cutting.
o When mowing large areas, start by turning to the dght 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.
• 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; tile 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.
o Always operate engine at full throttte
when mowing to assure better mowing
performance
and proper discharge of
matedal. Regulate ground speed by se*
lecting a low enough gear to give the
mower the best cutting performance
as
well as the quality of cut desired.
o When operating attachments,
select a
ground speed that will suit the terrain
and give best performance
of the attachment being used.
16
MULCHING
MOWING
TaPS
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°
o Change your cutting pattern from week
to week. Mow north to south one week
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 lawno Always
mulch with your highest engine (blade)
speed as this wilt provide the best recutting action of the blades_
o 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°
. 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 mow slowly°
then change to east to west the next
week. This will help prevent matting and
graining of the lawno

tn general, turning idle mixture valve in
(clockwise) decreases the supply of fuel to
the engine giving a leaner fuel/air mixture.
Turning the idle mixture valve out
(counterclockwise)
increases the supply of
fuel to the engine giving a richer fuel/air
mixture.
Manintenance,
