DO NOT:
•
Do not turn on slopes unless necessary, and then,
turn slowly and gradually downhill, if possible.
•
Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches, or embankments.
The mower could suddenly turn over if a wheel is over
the edge of a cliff or ditch, or if an edge caves in.
Do not mow on wet grass. Reduced traction could
cause sliding.
•
Do not try to stabilize the machine by putting your foot
on the ground.
•
Do not use grass catcher on steep slopes.
I. GENERAL
OPERATION
Read, understand, and follow all instructions in the
manual and on the machine before starting.
•
Only allow responsible adults, who are familiar with the
instructions, to operate the machine.
•
Clear the area of objects such as rocks, toys, wire, etc.,
which could be picked up and thrown by the blade.
•
Be sure the area is clear of other people before mowing. Stop machine if anyone enters the area.
Never carry passengers.
Do not mow in reverse unless absolutely necessary.
Always look down and behind before and while backing.
•
Be aware of the mower discharge direction and do not
point it at anyone. Do not operate the mower without
either the entire grass catcher or the guard in place.
•
Slow down before turning.
•
Never leave a running machine unattended. Always
turn off blades, set parking brake, stop engine, and
remove keys before dismounting.
•
Turn off blades when not mowing.
•
Stop engine before removing grass catcher or unclogging chute.
•
Mow only in daylight or good artificial light.
•
Do not operate the machine while under the influence
of alcohol or drugs.
•
Watch for traffic when operating near or crossing roadways.
•
Use extra care when loading or unloading the machine
into a trailer or truck.
•
Data indicates that operators, age 60 years and above,
are involved in a large percentage of riding mower-related injuries. These operators should evaluate their
ability to operate the riding mower safely enough to
protect themselves and others from serious injury.
•
Keep machine free of grass, leaves or other debris
build-up which can touch hot exhaust / engine parts
and burn. Do not allow the mower deck to plow leaves
or other debris which can cause build-up to occur.
Clean any oil or fuel spillage before operating or
storing the machine. Allow machine to cool before
storage.
II. SLOPE
III. 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 _ast saw them.
•
Keep children out of the mowing area 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 safe machine operation.
•
Never allow children to operate the machine.
•
Use extra care when approaching blind corners, shrubs,
trees, or other objects that may obscure vision.
IV. SERVICE
•
Use extra care in handling gasoline and other fuels.
They are flammable and vapors are explosive.
- Use only an approved container.
- Never remove gas cap or add fuel with the engine
running. Allow engine to cool before refueling. Do
not smoke.
- Never refuel the machine indoors.
- Never store the machine or fuel container inside where
there is an open flame, such as a water heater.
•
Never run a machine inside a closed area.
•
Keep nuts and bolts, especially blade attachment bolts,
tight and keep equipment in good condition.
•
Never tamper with safety devices. Check their proper
operation regularly.
Keep machine free of grass, leaves, or other debris
build-up. Clean oil or fuel spillage. Allow machine to
cool before storing.
•
Stop and inspect the equipment if you strike an object.
Repair, if necessary, before restarting.
•
Never make adjustments or repairs with the engine
running.
•
Grass catcher components are subject to wear, damage, and deterioration, which could expose moving
parts or allow objects to be thrown. Frequently check
components and replace with manufacturer's recommended parts, when necessary.
•
Mower blades are sharp and can cut. Wrap the blade(s)
or wear gloves, and use extra caution when servicing
them.
•
Check brake operation frequently. Adjust and service
as required.
OPERATION
Slopes are a majorfactor related to loss-of-control and tipover
accidents, which can result in severe injury or death. All slopes
requireextra caution. If you cannot back up the slope or if you
feel uneasy on it, do not mow it.
DO:
•
Mow up and down slopes, not across.
•
Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree limbs, etc.
•
Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps. Uneven terrain could
overturn the machine. Tafl grass can hide obstacles.
•
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 slow and graduaL
Do not make sudden changes in speed or direction.

OPERATION
The operation of any tractor can result in foreign objects thrown into the eyes, which can
result in severe eye damage. Always wear safety glasses or eye shields while operating
your tractor or performing any adjustments or repairs. We recommend a wide vision safety
mask over spectacles or standard safety glasses.
NOTE: Under certain conditions when tractor is standing
idle with the engine running, hot engine exhaust gases may
cause "browning" of grass. To eliminate this possibility, always stop engine when stopping tractor on grass areas.
HOW TO USE YOUR TRACTOR
TO SET PARKING

HEIGHT
The cutting height range is approximately 1-1/2 to 4".
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.
•
To stop ground drive, depress clutch/brake pedal into
full "BRAKE" position.
•
Move motion control lever to neutral (N) position.

comply with specifications of the manufacturer of you r tractor. Use common sense when towing. Too heavy of a load,
while on a slope, is dangerous.Tires can lose traction with
the ground and cause you to lose control of your tractor.
•
ENGINE
OIL LEVEL
The engine in youl'tractor has been shipped, from the
factory, already filled with summer weight oil.
Check engine oil with tractor on level ground.
Remove oil fill cap/dipstick and wipe clean, reinsert the
dipstick and screw cap tight, wait for a few seconds,
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 "OIL VISCOSITY CHART" in the
Maintenance section of this manual).
To change engine oil, see the Maintenance section in
this manual.
•
•
NOTE: Before starting, read the warm and cold starting
procedures below.
Insertkey intoignitionand turn keyclockwiseto "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, move throttle control to fast position,
wait a few minutes and try again. If engine still does
not start, move the throttle control back to the choke
position and retry.
WARM WEATHER STARTING (50 ° F and above)
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 itto warm up for one minute using the choke
as described above.
ADD GASOLINE
•
Fill fuel tank to bottom of 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.
I_
(See Fig. 4)
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.
Be sure freewheel controlisin thetransmissionengaged
position.
Sit on seat in operating position,depress clutch/brake
pedal and set parking brake.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WARM UP
•
Before driving the unit in coldweather, the transmission
should be warmed up as follows:
• Be sure the tractor is on level ground.
• Place the motion control lever in neutral.
Release the parking brake and let the clutch/
brake slowly return to operating position.
• Allow one minute for transmission to warm up.This
can be done during the engine warm up period.
•
The attachments can also be used during the engine
warm-up period after the transmission has been warmed
up.
CAUTION: 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 empty. Use fresh fuel next season. See Storage
Instructions for additional information. Never use
engine or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel
tank or permanent damage may occur.
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.

I
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 REINSTALLATIONBEFORE OPERATING
THE TRACTOR.
•
•
•
Place tractor safely on level surface with engine off and
parking brake set.
Disengage transmission by placing freewheel control
in freewheeling position (See"TOTRANSPORT" in this
section of manual).
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.
f
NOTE: During this procedure there will be no movement
of drive wheels. The air is being removed from hydraulic
drive system.
•
Move motion control lever to neutral (N) position, Shutoff engine and set parking brake.
•
Engage transmission by placing freewheel control in
driving position (See "TO TRANSPORT" in this section
of manual).
•
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.
•
Slowly move motion control lever forward, after the
tractor 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 procedure with the motion control lever three (3)
times.
•
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
machine. This will result in a more even distribution of
clippings and more uniform cutting.
When mowing largeareas, start by turning tothe rightso
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
(See Fig. 9).
FIG. 9
•
•
Your transmission is now purged and now ready for
normal operation.
14
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.

TO SHARPEN
BLADE (See Fig. 11)
Avoid stumps, stones, deep ruts, sharp objects and
other hazards that may cause tire damage.
NOTE: We do not recommend sharpening blade - but if
you do, be sure the blade is balanced.
NOTE: To seal tire punctures and prevent flat tires due to
slow leaks, tire sealant may be purchased from your local
parts dealer. Tire sealant also prevents tire dry rot and
corrosion.
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 on the
mower.
•
To check blade balance, you will need a 5/8" diameter
steel belt, pin, or a cone balancer. (When using a
cone balancer, follow the instructions supplied with
balancer).

WARNING: Never 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.
TRACTOR
Remove mower from tractor for winter storage. When mower
is to be stored for a period of time, clean itthoroughly, remove
all dirt, grease, leaves, etc. Store in a clean, dry area.

manual.
•
•
•
•
•
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.
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 found on stabilizer container.
Run 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.
Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws are securely
fastened. Inspect moving parts for damage, breakage
and wear. Replace if necessary.
Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand
lightly before painting.

CYLINDER(S)
*
*
Fully charge the battery for storage.
After a period of time in storage, battery may require
recharging.
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 TERMINALS" in the Maintenance section of this manual).
After cleaning, leave cables disconnected and place
cables where they cannot come in contact with battery
terminals.

•
•
Remove spark plug(s).
Pour one ounce of oil through spark plug hole(s) into
cylinder(s).
Turn ignition key to"START' position for a few seconds
to distribute oil.
Replace with new spark plug(s).
OTHER
•
•
Do not store gasoline from one season to another.
Replace your gasoline can if your can starts to rust.
Rust and/or dirt in your gasoline will cause problems.
•
If possible, store your tractor indoors and cover it to
give protection from dust and dirt.
•
Cover your tractor with a suitable protective cover that
does not retain moisture. Do not use plastic. Plastic
cannot breathe whichallows condensation to form and
will cause your tractor to rust.
IMPORTANT: NEVERCOVERTRACTORWHILEENGINE AND
EXHAUST AREAS ARE STILL WARM.
If battery is removed from tractor for storage, do not
store battery directly on concrete or damp surfaces.
