Material may ricochet back toward the
operator. Stop the blades when crossing gravel surfaces.
Do not operate machine without the
entire grass catcher, discharge
guard,
or other safety devices in place and
working.

Never leave a running machine
unattended.
Always turn off blades,
set parking brake, stop engine, and
remove keys before dismounting.
Disengage
blades when not mowing.
Shut off engine and wait for all parts to
come to a complete stop before cleaning the machine,
removing
the grass

II. SLOPE
OPERATION
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
on the slope.
Do not mow on wet grass. Tires may
lose traction.
Always keep the machine in gear when
going clown 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.
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.
ill. CHILDREN
Tragic accidents
can occur if the operator
is not alert to the presence
of children.
Children are often attracted to the machine
and the mowing
activity.
Never assume
that children
will remain
where you last
saw them.
Keep children out of the mowing area
and in the watchful
care of a responsible adult other than the operator.
Be alert and turn machine off if a child
enters the area.
Before and while backing, look behind
and down for small children.
•
•
Never carry children,
even with the
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
backed over by the machine.
Never allow children to operate
machine.
the
Use extra care when approaching
blind
corners, shrubs, trees, or other objects
that may block your view of a child.
IV. TOWING

Tow only with a machine that has a
hitch designed for towing. Do not attach towed equipment
except at the
hitch point.

TOWING

CARTS
AND
OTHER
ATTACH-
Tow only the attachments
that are recommended by and comply with specifications
of the manufacturer
of your tractor. Use
common sense when towing. Too heavy

Tires can lose traction with the ground and
cause you to lose control of your tractor.
BEFORE
STARTING
THE ENGINE
CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL
The engine in your tractor has been
shipped, from the factory, already filled
with summer weight oil.
1. Check engine oil with tractor on level
ground.
2. 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 reached. Do not overfill.
* For cold weather operation you should
change oil for easier starting (See the
oil viscosity chart in the Maintenance
section of this manual).
, To change engine oil, see the Maintenance section in this manual.
ADD GASOLINE
, Fill fuel tank to bottom
of tank filler neck.
Do not overfill. 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.
_CAUTION:
Wipe off any spilled oil or
fuel. Do not store, spill or use gasoline
near an open flame.
IMPORTANT:
When operating
in temperatures below 32°F(0°C),
use fresh, clean
winter grade gasoline to help insure good
cold weather starting.
CAUTION:
Alcohol blended fuels (called
gasohoJ 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 empty. Use fresh fuel
next season. See Storage Instructions
for
13 additi°nal
information.
Never use engine or carburetor cleaner

damage may occur.

seconds to several minutes, depending
on the temperature.
TO START ENGINE

take extra cranking time to move fuel from

Allow one minute for transmission
to
warm up. This can be done during the
engine warm up period.
• The attachments
can be used during
the engine warm-up
period after the
transmission
has been warmed up and
may require the choke control be pulled
out slightly.
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).
NOTE: Before starting, read the warm and
cold starting procedures
below.
7. Insert key into ignition and turn key
clockwise
to start position and release
key as soon as engine starts. Do
not run starter continuously
for more
than fifteen seconds
per minute. If the
engine does not start after several
attempts,
push choke control in, wait
a few minutes and try again. If engine
still does not start, pull the choke control out and retry.
PURGE TRANSMISSION
_I, 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.
1. Place tractor safely on level surface
with engine off and parking brake set.
2. Disengage
transmission
by placing
freewheel
control in disengaged
position (See "TO TRANSPORT"
in this
section of manual).
3. Sitting in the tractor seat, start engine.
After the engine is running, move

MOWING
TIPS
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 already 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.
, 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.
15
00272
• 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.
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 cutting performance
as well as
the quality of cut desired.
, When operating attachments,
select a
ground speed that will suit the terrain
and give best performance
of the attachment
being used.

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 a Sears or other qualified
service center, which has proper equipment and experience
to make any necessary adjustments.
In 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
screw is turned in too tight.
