and eight lock nuts (5/16 inch). Make sure the
one longer bolt is used in the hold nearest to the
discharge opening in the deck to accommodate the
mulch cover in a later step (Figure 2).

Operation
Converting Back to Side
Discharge
DANGER
Without the grass deflector, discharge cover, or
complete grass catcher assembly mounted in
place, you and others are exposed to blade contact
and thrown debris. Contact with rotating mower
blade(s) and thrown debris will cause injury or
death.
• Never remove the grass deflector from the
mower because the grass deflector routes
material down toward the turf. If the
grass deflector is ever damaged, replace it
immediately.

• Never put your hands or feet under the mower.
5. Reaching inside the side-discharge opening, remove
the kicker and set it and the long bolt aside for
future use. Keep the lock nut for use in the next
step (Figure 1).
• Never try to clear the discharge area or mower
blades unless you move the power take off
(PTO) to disengage and turn the ignition key
to off. Also remove the key and pull the wire
off the spark plug(s).
Note: The deck rings and remaining kickers can
remain on the deck in side-discharge mode.
6. Reinstall the cutoff baffle in its original position.
7. Lower the grass deflector over the discharge
opening.
Removing the Discharge Cover for
Side Discharge
1. Park the machine on a level surface and disengage
the blade control switch.
Important: Ensure the mower has a hinged
grass deflector that disperses clippings to the
side and down toward the turf, while in side
discharge mode.
2. Move the motion control levers outward to park
position, stop the engine, remove the key, and wait
for all moving parts to stop before leaving the
operating position.
Operating Tips
3. Retrieve the parts and fasteners that were set aside
in Preparing the Mower.
Selecting the Proper Height-of-Cut
Setting to Suit the Conditions
4. Remove the wing nut, bolt and the hinge pin
securing the side-discharge cover in place and lift
the cover out and away from the deck (Figure 6).
Retain all parts for future use.
Remove approximately one inch or no more that 1/3
of the grass blade when cutting. In exceptionally lush
and dense grass you may have to raise the height-of-cut
setting another notch or convert to side discharge or
bagging operations.
Mowing in Extreme Conditions
Air is required to cut and recut grass clippings in the
mower housing, so do not set the height-of-cut too low
or totally surround the housing by uncut grass. Always
have one side of the mower housing free from uncut
grass, allowing air to be drawn into housing. When
4
making an initial cut through the center of the uncut
area, operate the machine at a slower speed and back
up if the mower starts to clog.
Mowing at the Proper Intervals
Under normal conditions you’ll need to mow every
4-5 days. However, grass grows at different rates at
different times. Thus, in order to maintain the same
height-of-cut, which is a good practice, you’ll need to
cut more frequently in early spring; as the grass growth
rate slows in mid summer, cut only every 8-10 days.
If you are unable to mow for an extended period due
to the weather conditions or other reasons, convert to
side discharge or bagging options or mow first with the
height-of-cut at a high level; then mow again 2-3 days
later with a lower height setting.
Always Mow with Sharp Blades
A sharp blade cuts cleanly and without tearing or
shredding the grass blade like a dull blade. Tearing and
shredding causes the grass to turn brown at the edges
which impairs growth and increases susceptibility to
disease.
Cleaning After Operating
To ensure optimum performance, clean the underside
of the mower housing. If residue is allowed to build up
in mower housing, cutting performance will decrease.
