SLOPE OPERATION
Slopes are a major factor related to lossof-control and tipover accidents, which
can result in severe injury or death° All
slopes require extra caution. If you cannot
back up the slope or if you feel uneasy on
it, do not mow it,

o Mow up and down slopes, not across.
o Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree
limbs, etc.
° Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps_ Uneven
terrain could overturn the machine. Tall
grass can hide obstacles.
o Use slow speed° Choose a low gear so
that you will not have to stop or shift
while on the slope.
° Follow the manufacturer's
recommendations for wheel weights or counterweights to improve stability.
° Use extra care with grass catchers or
other attachments. These can change
the stability of the machine_
, Keep all movement on the slopes s_ow
and gradual. Do not make sudden
changes in speed or direction.

and under the watchful care of another
responsible adult.
° Be alert and turn machine off if children
enter the area.
° Before and when backing, look behind
and down for small children.
= Never carry children. They may fall off
and be seriously injured or interfere with

sure you have allowed room for tractor
• The engine in your tractor has been
shipped, from the factory, already filled
with summer weight oil.
o Check engine oil with tractor on level
ground.
° Unthread and remove oil fill cap/dipstick; wipe oil off. Reinsert the dipstick
into the tube and rest oil fill cap on the
tube° Do not thread the cap onto the
tube. Remove and read oil level. If necessary, add oil until "FULL" mark on
dipstick is reache& Do not overfill.
° For cold weather operation you should
change oil for easier starting (See "OIL
VISCOSITY CHART" in the Customer
Responsibilities section of this manual).
• To change engine oil, see the Customer
Responsibilities 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 wil!
increase carbon and lead oxide
deposits and reduce valve tife). Do not
mix oil with gasoline. Purchase fuel in
15
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
cold weather starting.
_WARNING: Experienceindicatesthat
alcohol blended fuels (called gasoholor
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°Toavoid 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 next season.
See Storage Instructionsfor additional
information. Never use engineor carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or per_nent damage may occur.
CAUTION; Fill to bottom of gas tank
filler neck. Do not overfill. Wipe off any
spilled oil or fuel. Do not store, spill or use
gasoline near an open flame°
TO START ENGINE
When starting the engine for the first time
or if the engine has run out of fuel, it will
take extra cranking time to move fuel from
the tank to the engine.
• Sit on seat in operating position,
depress clutch/brake pedal and set
parking brake.
o Place gear shift lever in neutral (N) position.
o Move attachment clutch to "DISENGAGED" position.
o Move throttle control to choke position.
Note: Before starting, readthe warm and
cold starting proceduresbelow.
, Insert key into ignition and turn key
clockwise to "START"position and
release key as soon as enginestarts.
Do not run starter continuouslyfor more
than fifteen seconds per minute, tf the
engine does not start after several
attempts, move throttle controlto fast
position, wait a few minutesand try
again. If engine still does not start,
move the throttle control back to the
choke position and retry°
WARM WEATHERSTARTING(50° F
AND ABOVE)

t
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)
• 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.
° The attachments can also be used during the engine warm-.up period.
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 'q'O ADJUST CARBURETOR" in the
Service and Adjustments section of this
manual.
MOWING TIPS
• ]ire 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.
° Drive so that clippings are discharged
onto the area that has been cut. Have
the cut area to the right of the tractor.
This will result in a more even distribution of clippings and more uniform cutting.
o When mowing large areas, start by turning to the right so that clippings wil! discharge away from shrubs, fences, drive,ways, etc. After one or two rounds, mow
in the opposite direction making left
hand turns until finished.
f
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.
• 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.
° 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 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.
MULCHING
MOWING
Max 1/3
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
then change to east to west the next
week. This will help prevent matting and
graining of the lawn.
TIPS
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 wilt disperse into the
grass and not be noticed. Also, the
mulched grass will biedegrade quickly
to provide nutrients for the lawn. Always
mulch with your highest engine (blade)
speed as this will provide the best recutting 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

TO SHARPEN BLADE
NOTE: We do not recommend sharpening
blade, but if you do, be sure the blade is
balanced.
Care should be taken to keep the blade
balanced. An unbalanced blade will cause
excessive vibration and eventual damage
to mower and engine.
° The blade can be sharpened with a file
or on a grinding wheel. Do not attempt
to sharpen while it is on the mower.
o To check blade balance, you wilt need a
5/8" diameter steel bolt, pin, or a cone
balancer. (When using a cone balancer,
follow the instructions supplied with balance r).
• Slide blade onto an unthreaded portion
of the steel bolt or pin and hold the bolt
or pin parallel with the ground. If blade
is balanced, it should remain in a horF
zontal position. If either end of the blade
moves downward, sharpen the heavy
end until the blade is balanced.

TO ADJUST
CABLE
THROTTLE
=
CONTROL
The throttle control has been preset at the
factory and adjustment should not be necessary. Check adjustment as described
below before loosening cable. If adjustment is necessary, proceed as follows:
• With engine not running, move throttle
control lever from slow to choke position. Slowly move lever from choke to
fast position.
• Check to see if hole in throttle lever and
hole in speed control bracket are
aligned.
• If holes are not aligned, loosen cable
clamp screw and align the holes by
inserting a pencil or a 1/4" drill bit
through both holes.
° Pull throttle cable up to remove slack
and tighten cable clamp screw. Remove
alignment pencil or drill bit.
TO ADJUST CARBURETOR
The carburetor has been preset at the factory and adjustment should not be necessary. However, minor adjustment may be
required to compensate for differences in
fuel, temperature, altitude or load. If the
carburetor does need adjustment, proceed
as follows:
tn general, turning the adjusting needles in
(clockwise) decreases the supply of fuel to
the engine giving a leaner fuel/air mixture.
Turning the adjusting needles out
(counterclockwise)
increases the supply of
fuel to the engine giving a richer fuel/air
mixture.
IMPORTANT: Damage to the needles and
the seats in carburetor may result if needle is turned in too tight.
NOTE; The carburetor on this engine is
low emission. It is equipped with an idle
fuel adjusting needle with a timiter cap,
which allows some adjustment within the
limits allowed by the cap. Do not attempt
to remove the limiter cap_ The limiter cap
cannot be removed without breaking the
adjusting needle°
° Be sure you have a clean air filter and
o
•
the throttle control cable is adjusted
properly (see above).
Start engine and allow to warm for five
minutes. Make adjustments with engine
running and shift/motion control lever in
neutral (N) position.
Idle speed setting - With throttle control
lever in slow position, engine should
idle at 1750 RPM If engine idles too
slow or fast, turn idle speed adjusting
screw in or out until correct idle is attained.
Idle fuel needle setting - With throttle
control lever in slow position, turn idle
fuel adjustment needle in (clockwise)
until engine begins to die and then turn
out (counterclockwise)
until engine runs
rough. Turn needle to a point midway
between those two positions.
Recheck idle speed. Readjust if necessary.
ACCELERATION
TEST • Move throttle control lever from slow to
fast position. If engine hesitates or dies,
turn idle fuel adjusting needle out
(counterclockwise)
1/8 turn. Repeat test
and continue to adjust, if necessary,
until engine accelerates smoothly.
High speed stop is factory adjusted° Do
not adjust - damage may result.
IMPORTANT: Never tamper with the
engine governor, which is factory set for
proper engine speed. Overspeeding the
engine above the factory high speed setting can be dangerous° if you think the
engine-governed
high speed needs
adjusting, contact your nearest AUTHORIZED service center/department,
which
has proper equipment and experience to
make any necessary adjustments.

filter, fuel hose, or tank during storage°
Also, experience indicates that alcohol
blended fuels (called gas0hel or using
ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture
which leads to separation and formation of
acids during storage. Acidic gas can dam,
age the fuel system of an engine while in
storage.
!
• Drain the fuel tank.
° Start the engine and let it run until the
fuel lines and carburetor are empty.
° Never use engine or carburetor cleaner
products in the fuel tank or permanent
damage may occur.
o Use fresh fuel next season.
NOTE: Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable
alternative in minimizing the formation of
fuel gum deposits during storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline in fuel tank or storage
container. Always follow the mix ratio
immediately prepare your tractor for storage at the end of the season or if the tractor will not be used for 30 days or more.
_CAUTIONNever store the tractor with
gasoline in the tank inside a building
where fumes may reach an open flame or
spark. Allow the engine to cool before
storing in any enclosure.

are securely fastened. Inspect moving
parts for damage, breakage and wear.
Replace if necessary°
o Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand lightly before painting.
BATTERY
° Fully charge the battery for storage.
o After a period of time in storage, battery
may require recharging_
o To help prevent corrosion and power
leakage during long periods of storage,
battery cables should be disconnected
and battery cleaned thoroughly (see
"TO CLEAN BATTERY AND TERMI_
NALS" in the Maintenance section of
this manual).
o After cleaning, leave cables disconnected and place cables where they cannot
come in contact with battery terminals.

storage, do not store battery directly on
concrete or damp surfaces.
found on stabilizer container° RU[I engine
at least 10 minutes after adding stabilizer
to allow the stabilizer to reach the carburetor. Do not drain the gas tank and carburetor if using fuel stabilizer.
ENGINE OIL
Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace
with clean engine oil. (See "ENGINE" in
the Maintenance section of this manual).
CYLINDERS
• Remove spark plug(s).
° Pour one our_ce of oil through spark
plug hole(s) into cylinder(s).
° Turn ignition key to "START" position for
a few seconds to distribute oil.
o Replace with_new spark plug(s).
OTHER
• Do not store gasoline from one season
to another.

rust. Rust and/or dirt in your gasoline
will cause problems.
° If possible, s_ore your tractor indoors
and cover it tp give protection,f,rom dust
and dirt.
_
o Cover your tractor with a suitable protective cover that does not retain moisturer Do not use plastic. Plastic cannot
breathe, which allows condensation to
form and cause your tractor to rust.
IMPORTANT:
Never cover tractor while
engine and exhaust areas are still warm°
