blades shut off. They may fall off and
be seriously injured or interfere with
safe machine operation.
Children who
have been given rides in the past may
suddenly appear in the mowing area
for another ride and be run over or
Slopes are a major factor related to loss of
control and tip-over accidents, which can
result in severe injury or death. Operation on all slopes requires extra caution. If
you cannot back up the slope or if you feel
uneasy on it, do not mow it.
Mow up and down slopes, not across.
Watch for holes, ruts, bumps, rocks, or
other hidden objects. Uneven terrain
could overturn the machine. Tall grass
can hide obstacles.
Choose a low ground speed so that
you will not have to stop or shift while

hitch designed for towing. Do not attach towed equipment
except at the
hitch point.
Follow the manufacturer's
recommendation for weight limits for towed equipment and towing on slopes.
Never allow children or others in or on
towed equipment.
On slopes, the weight of the towed
equipment
may cause loss of traction
and loss of control.
Always keep the machine in gear when
going down slopes. Do not shift to
neutral and coast downhill.
Avoid starting, stopping, or turning on
a slope. If the tires lose traction,
disengage the blades and proceed slowly
straight down the slope.
Keep all movement
on the slopes slow
and gradual.
Do not make sudden
changes in speed or direction, which
could cause the machine to roll over.
Travel slowly
to stop.
Use extra care while operating machine with grass catchers or other attachments;
they can affect the stability
of the machine. Do no use on steep
slopes.
Do not try to stabilize the machine by
putting your foot on the ground.
Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches,
or embankments.
The machine could
suddenly roll over if a wheel is over the
edge or if the edge caves in.

CUTTING
HEIGHT
The cutting height is controlled by turning the height adjustment knob in desired
direction.
• Turn knob clockwise (_)
to raise cutting height.
• Turn knob counterclockwise
(_#-_)to
lower cutting height.
TO OPERATE
The cutting height range is approximately
1-1/2" to 4-1/2". 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.
• 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 healthier and better
looking lawns, mow often and after
moderate growth.
• 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.
