• Check all bolts frequently to maintain proper
tightness.
• Frequently check for worn or deteriorating
components that could create a hazard.
• All replacement parts must be the same as
or equivalent to the parts supplied as original
equipment.
• Remove or mark obstacles such as rocks, tree
limbs, etc. from the mowing area. Tall grass can
hide obstacles.
• Watch for ditches, holes, rocks, dips and rises that
change the operating angle, as rough terrain could
overturn the machine.
• Avoid sudden starts when mowing uphill because
the mower may tip backwards.
• Be aware that operating on wet grass, across steep
slopes or downhill may cause the mower to lose
traction. Loss of traction to the drive wheels may
result in sliding and a loss of braking and steering.
• Always avoid sudden starting or stopping on a
slope. If tires lose traction, disengage the blades
and proceed slowly off the slope.
• Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for
wheel weights or counter weights to improve
stability. Always install and remove the Ultra Vac,
including counter weights, as instructed. Failure
to do so will cause a reduction in stability or
traction. Do Not operate the mower with only a
portion of the Ultra Vac installed.
• Use extreme care with grass catchers or
attachments. These can change the stability of the
machine and cause loss of control. The stability
and traction of the machine will change as the
Ultra Vac hopper fills with grass clippings. Use

Product Overview
Operation
Note: Determine the left and right sides of the
machine from the normal operating position.
Important: For Serial Numbers 790,000 and
higher, multiple accessories added to a base
unit can change the stability of the machine.
Read the unit operator’s manual to determine
if counterbalance weights are necessary for the
accessories installed on the unit.
Important: Due to the added weight of the
Ultra Vac, it is important to ensure the parking
brake on your mower is adjusted properly. Before
installing the Ultra Vac, make sure to re-adjust
the parking brake on your mower as outlined in
the “Adjusting the Parking Brake” procedure in
the Maintenance section of the tractor Operator’s
manual.

Pre-Start
Make sure you understand the controls, their
locations, their functions, and their safety
requirements.
Ensure the blower, door mesh, tubes and hopper are
in good condition, properly attached, and latched.
Important: Verify that the reinforced bumpers
are installed on your unit prior to operation.
Refer to the Maintenance section and perform all the
necessary inspection and maintenance steps.
Operating Instructions
Mowing
1. The Ultra Vac blower operates when PTO is
engaged. Be sure that all persons are clear of
the mower deck before engaging the cutting
blades. Set the throttle to “midway” position. Pull
outward on the PTO switch to the “ROTATE”
position. Accelerate to full throttle to begin
mowing.
2. To disengage the PTO and blower, set the
throttle to “midway” position. Push in on the
PTO switch to the “STOP” position to stop the
cutting blades and blower. The cutting blades will
require a slightly longer amount of time to come
to a complete stop when the blower is installed
on the deck. Verify that all rotation indicators
11
Operation
have stopped before clearing blower assembly or
mower deck
2. Disengage the PTO, stop engine, wait for all
moving parts to stop, and remove key. Engage
parking brake.
3. To empty the hopper, first disengage the PTO.
Lift up on the handle to open the door and empty
the hopper. If the unit is to be driven onto a truck
or trailer with the hopper full, always back the
unit up the ramp. This will reduce the chance of
rearward tip up. See the Transporting section
for additional information regarding loading a
unit on a truck or trailer.
3. Remove the discharge tube by releasing the latches
at the blower. Slide the tube off the blower outlet
and remove the upper end from the hopper.
4. Close and latch the door before continuing
mowing. Do Not engage the cutting blades while
the door is in the open position.
Tips for mowing conditions:
• When mowing in areas with sandy soil, use
low lift blades on the cutting deck and higher
cutting heights to minimize wear on the blower
components.
• When mowing in wet conditions, such as just after
a rain or in heavy dew, use low lift blades on the
cutting deck to minimize plugging of the blower.
Figure 6

• Maintaining a ground speed that does not pull
down the engine RPM will allow for the highest
productivity and best quality of cut. Bogging the
engine RPM down by going too fast will cause
plugging and quality of cut issues.
• When the Ultra Vac gets full, the sound of
the blower will change and there will be slight
blowout from the front right corner of the deck.
Emptying the Ultra Vac at this point will minimize
the potential for the tube to plug.

Operation
CAUTION
This unit does not have proper turn
signals, lights, reflective markings, or a
slow moving vehicle emblem. Driving on a
street or roadway without such equipment
is dangerous and can lead to accidents
causing personal injury. Driving on a street
or roadway without such equipment may also
be a violation of State laws and the operator
may be subject to traffic tickets and/or fines.

2. Hairpin
Do Not drive a unit on a public street or
roadway.
30. For LZUVQD11 Units Only:
A. Install the removable caster weights over the
caster arms (see Figure 23).
B. Install a clevis pin and hairpin on each caster
weight to retain them.
C. Tighten knob on weight assembly until the
weight is clamped securely to the caster arm.
WARNING
Loading a unit on a trailer or truck increases
the possibility of backward tip-over.
Backward tip-over could cause serious injury
or death.
• Use extreme caution when operating a
unit on a ramp.
• Use only a single, full width ramp; Do
Not use individual ramps for each side
of the unit.
• If individual ramps must be used, use
enough ramps to create an unbroken
ramp surface wider than the unit.
• Do Not exceed a 15° angle between ramp
and ground or between ramp and trailer
or truck.
• Avoid sudden acceleration while driving
unit up a ramp to avoid tipping backward.

Transporting
Loading a Unit
Transporting a Unit
Do Not transport the unit with the hopper full.
Empty the hopper before attempting to load unit
on trailer or truck. This will reduce the chance
of rearward tip up. Use extreme caution when
loading units on trailers or trucks. One full width
ramp that is wide enough to extend beyond the rear
tires is recommended instead of individual ramps for
Use a heavy-duty trailer or truck to transport the
machine. Lock brake and block wheels. Securely
fasten the machine to the trailer or truck with straps,
chains, cable, or ropes. Be sure that the trailer or truck
has all necessary lighting and marking as required by
law. Secure a trailer with a safety chain.

Operation
each side of the unit. The lower rear section of the
tractor frame extends back between the rear wheels
and serves as a stop for tipping backward. Having
a full width ramp provides a surface for the frame
members to contact if the unit starts to tip backward.
If it is not possible to use one full width ramp, use
enough individual ramps to simulate a full width
continuous ramp.
mower. Lower the roll bar temporarily only when
absolutely necessary.
Refer to the Operator’s manual supplied with your
tractor for additional ROPS safety and operating
instructions.
Ramp should be long enough so that the angles
between the ramp and the ground and the ramp and
the trailer or truck Do Not exceed 15°. A steeper
angle may cause mower deck components to get
caught as the unit moves from ramp to trailer or
truck. Steeper angles may also cause the unit to tip
backward. If loading on or near a slope, position
the trailer or truck so it is on the down side of the
slope and the ramp extends up the slope. This will
minimize the ramp angle. The trailer or truck should
be as level as possible.
Important: Do Not attempt to turn the unit
while on the ramp, you may lose control and
drive off the side.
Avoid sudden acceleration when driving up a ramp
and sudden deceleration when backing down a ramp.
Both maneuvers can cause the unit to tip backward.
Rollover Protection System (ROPS)
The roll bar has an intermediate position that allows
the bar to be lowered to provide over head clearance,
but not rest directly on the Ultra Vac assembly. Insert
a 1/2 x 3 inch bolt and 1/2 inch nut (or Exmark
service parts: clevis pin P/N 283-55 and hairpin P/N
1-806005) into the downstop hole on each side and
lower the roll bar.

Adjustments
Adjusting the Blower Drive Belt Position
1. Read the operator’s manual for the UltraVac and mower before performing this adjustment. Make sure that
you understand the controls, their locations their functions and safety requirements.
2. Ensure the blower, belt cover, tubes and hopper are in good condition, properly attached and latched.
3. Run the unit with the PTO and the blower engaged for two minutes.
4. Disengage the PTO, stop the engine and remove the key.
5. Remove the belt cover and check to make sure that the belt is riding near the center of the flat idler
on the idler arm. If the belt is not riding near the center of the idler, remove the blower, and bend the
idler arm slightly.
6. Reinstall the blower and belt cover and perform steps 3-5 again to verify belt position.
Adjusting the Door Linkage
LZUVQD7 Units:
1. If the door does not close properly adjust the rods as shown in Figure 25.
• Shorten the rod to increase over center force.
• Lengthen the rod to reduce.
Adjust the rods on both sides so they are approximately equal.

2. Stop
3. 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) ± 1/8 inch (3.2 mm)
2. If the left and right stops do not make contact with the door link when it is in the extended position:
Adjust the position of the stops (see Figure 25) so that the door link contacts them when the upper tube of
the door frame is within 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) ± 1/8 (3.2 mm) from the lower lip of the hopper.

4. Hinge Links
1. Door closing: The closing of the door is controlled by the two hinge links and the two stop screws (see
Figure 26). The stop screws should be adjusted so that both will be contacted when the contacting arm
is straight up and down. With the stop screws adjusted, the length of the hinge links can be changed to
provide complete closing of the door, and reasonable force on the handle to latch or unlatch the door.
Lengthen the links to reduce the force. Shorten the links to increase the force. With the door closed, both
links should be slightly tight to minimize rattling.
2. Door opening: After adjusting the hinge links for door closing, the handle link can be adjusted to obtain
maximum door opening (see Figure 26). Lengthen the link to open the door farther. Shorten the link to
open the door less. The maximum door opening is limited by the contacting arm hitting the stop. This stop
is non adjustable, and prevents over opening damage from occurring to the linkage.
3. Latches: Once the open and closed positions have been set, the latches can be adjusted (see Figure 26).
With the door closed, the latch link should be set so that the latch plate completely engages and contacts
the latch rod welded to the door. The latch plates should not be tight against the latch rod. They should
easily “wiggle”.
