OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Releasing the operator presence levers with either the
transmission shift lever in gear or the blade clutch
engaged will shut off the engine.
B. Initial Adjustments
1.
Disconnect the spark plug wire.
2.
Check the tire pressure. Drive Wheels should be inflated
to 25 psi. Caster Wheels should be inflated to 15 psi.
Note: New tires are overinflated in order to properly seat
the bead to the rim.
3.
Check that all nuts, bolts and screws are tight.
4.
Check the tension of the deck drive belts:
Figure 2 View Looking Under The Fuel Tank
2. Fuel Shutoff Valve
5. Transmission Shift Lever
6. Blade Clutch (Manual and Electric):
Located on the left handle below the control panel. This
is an over-center belt clutch. When the handle is pushed
forward it snaps to rest and forces the idler pulley into
the blade drive belt causing the blades to rotate. Pull
back the handle and the pressure on the belt is relieved
and the blades stop rotating. Electric: Located on the
left side of the control panel, this is an on/off toggle
switch that controls the electric blade clutch which
supplies power to the cutting blades. See Handle
Assembly with Electric Blade Clutch in Parts List.
5.
7. Steering Brake Levers:
There is a right-hand lever located beneath the outer
end of the right handle and a left-hand lever located
beneath the outer end of the left handle. Each lever
operates independently and when squeezed against
spring tension, lifts the idler pulley from applying
pressure to the traction drive belt on the right or left side
and applies the right or left side brake. When the levers
are released, the mower will move ahead in a straight
line if the engine is running and the transmission is
engaged in a forward gear. Steering is accomplished by
squeezing the steering/brake lever on the side to which
the turn is to be made.
6.
The two drive wheel belts are self-adjusting.
7.
The steering control rods on each side of the handle
assembly should initially be adjusted so that there is
about a 1/4" space between the rod and the bottom of
the slot in the neutral latch lever with the latch in the
drive position. To make this adjustment, remove the
large hairpin from the swivel joint at the bottom of each
steering control rod and thread the swivel joint up or
down the rod as needed.
8.
The brake rods (above each drive wheel) should be
adjusted so that when the steering/brake levers are
squeezed and the mower is pulled backward, the brakes
lock the drive wheels. The machine should roll freely
when the neutral latch lever is in the neutral lock
position. To adjust the brake rods, remove the large
hairpin from the swivel joint at the top of each brake rod
and thread the swivel joint up or down the rod as
needed.
9.
Adjusting the cutting height: The mower is shipped with
the cutting height set at 3 inches ±1/4 inch depending
on the air pressure in the tires. To change the cutting
height, blade spacers and/or caster spacers must be
moved according to the table on page 6.
8. Neutral Latch Levers:
Pivoted inside each handle there is a neutral latch lever
which works with each of the steering/brake levers.
When either of the steering/brake levers is squeezed
and its neutral latch lever pushed forward and engaged
in the neutral lock position, the steering/brake lever is
held in a position where the idler pulley is not applying
pressure to the traction drive belt and the brake is not
quite engaged. The neutral latch levers should be
engaged in the neutral lock position before starting the
engine.
a. Remove the deck cover shield and engage the
blade clutch.
b. Make sure the belts clear the belt guides by 1/8" to
1/4".
c. The tension of the deck drive belts should be
adjusted so that a ten-pound pull between two
pulleys deflects each belt about 1/2". Do not
overtighten these belts. The blade clutch should
engage with only moderate force.
d. Replace the deck cover shield and disengage the
blade clutch.
The tension of the transmission drive belt should be
adjusted so that a five-pound pull between the engine
traction drive pulley and the transmission drive pulley
deflects the belt about 3/16".
10. Lubricate all fittings listed in the maintenance section.
C. Break-In and Operation:
9. Operator Presence Levers:
Located above the outer ends of the right and left
handles, these levers must be held down on the handles
against spring pressure in order to shift the transmission
shift lever into gear or engage the blade clutch.
8
1.
Make certain you thoroughly understand all of the safety
precautions before you attempt to operate this machine.
2.
Check the engine oil level. Fill to the proper level with
10W-40 engine oil rated for service SE or SF.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
3.
Move the mower outdoors. Check the engine gasoline
level. When filling the tank, stop when the gasoline
reaches one inch from the top. This space must be left
for expansion. Use fresh, clean, unleaded, regular
gasoline.
4.
Move the mower to a “test area” where you can operate
the mower for about half an hour without being
disturbed.
5.
To start the engine:
a.
Shift the transmission to neutral.
b.

on. (For electric-start engines: Turn the key to “Start”.
Do not hold the key in the start position for more than
10 seconds or you may damage the starter.)
h.
i.
6.
7.
8.
Push the blade clutch lever forward until it engages and
the cutter blades start rotating.
9.
Shift the transmission into first gear. (It is suggested that
you practice mowing in first gear.)
10. Squeeze both steering/brake levers with both hands and
release the neutral latch levers from the neutral lock
position.
11. Slowly release the steering/brake levers and the mower
will move ahead in a straight line. To turn the mower,
squeeze the steering/brake lever on the side to which
you want to turn.
12. To stop the mower’s forward motion, squeeze both
steering/brake levers until the mower stops and place
the neutral latch levers into the neutral lock position.
13. Before shifting into reverse gear, the mower’s forward
motion must be completely stopped. For maximum
traction in reverse, the steering/brake levers should be
pushed downward.
WARNING: To avoid possible bodily injury
and to prevent damage to the transmission,
the mower must be completely stopped before
attempting to shift from forward to reverse or
reverse to forward.
For recoil-start engines: Grasp the starter grip and
pull slowly until the starter engages and then pull the
cord rapidly to overcome compression, prevent
kickback and start the engine. Allow the cord to recoil
slowly. Repeat if necessary.
14. Practice operating the mower and as you gain
confidence, shift the transmission from first to second
and mow for a while and then shift from second to third.
Mow for at least one-half hour and then return the
mower to the shop.
Set the throttle at 50% of full engine RPM and allow
the engine to warm up. Then, adjust the throttle to full
engine RPM.
15. To stop and shut off the mower, squeeze both steering/
brake levers and place the neutral latch levers into the
neutral lock position, disengage the blade clutch, shift
the transmission into neutral, turn off the ignition to stop
the engine, close the fuel shutoff valve and disconnect
the spark plug wire.
After the engine has warmed up, shut off the ignition
and check the operation of the safety switches. Make
certain that the engine will not start unless the ignition
switch is turned on, the transmission is in neutral and
the blade clutch is disengaged. If the engine will start
with the transmission in any gear other than neutral,
immediately shut off the engine and replace the neutral
safety switch on top of the transmission. If the engine
will start with the blade clutch engaged, immediately
shut off the engine and adjust or replace, if necessary,
the blade safety switch mounted on the engine deck.
Start the engine and hold the left operator presence
control lever down against the left handle and move the
transmission shift lever into first gear. Now take your
hand off the operator presence control lever and the
engine should die. If it does not, immediately shut off the
engine and adjust or replace, if necessary, the operator
presence switch under the control panel. Shift the
transmission into neutral, restart the engine, hold the left
operator presence control down against the left handle
and engage the blade clutch. Now take your hand off of
the operator presence lever and the engine should die.
If it does not, immediately shut off the engine and adjust
or replace, if necessary, the operator presence switch
under the control panel. Disengage the blade clutch.
16. Check that all nuts, bolts and screws are still tight.
17. Check, and adjust if necessary, the tension of the deck
drive belts and the transmission drive belt as described
in items 4 and 5 of the Initial Adjustment section.
18. Readjust the steering control rods and the brake rods.
They may require frequent adjustment until the belts
and brake bands have properly seated. These
adjustments are described in items 7 and 8 of the Initial
Adjustment section.
19. After the first full day of mowing, all nuts, bolt and
screws should be rechecked for proper tightness and
the belts should be rechecked for proper tension.
Restart the engine.
