Clockwise:
To lower
blades
Like all mechanical tools, reasonable care must
be used when operating machine.
Inspect machine work area and machine before operating. Make sure that all operators of this equipment are
trained in general machine use and safety.
STARTING ENGINE
ENGINE: See engine manufacturer’s instructions
for type and amount of oil and gasoline used.
Engine must be level when checking and filling oil and
gasoline.
ENGINE SPEED: Controlled by throttle lever on the engine.
Under normal conditions, operate at full throttle to accomplish your task.
FUEL VALVE: Move fuel valve to "ON" position (Honda
only).
The depth of the blades can be raised or lowered by
rotating the knob on the top of the adjustment lever. The
blades are lowered by rotating the knob clockwise, and
raised by rotating the knob counter-clockwise. The
relative depth of the blades can be gauged by using the
depth scale located on the right front corner of the engine
base. With new blades installed the depth can be
estimated as follows: 2.5 on the scale is even with the
ground, 3 is equal to 0.25" deep, and 3.5 is equal to 0.5"
deep
CHOKE: Operated with lever on the engine.
THROTTLE: Move throttle control on engine to fast position.
Pull starting rope to start engine.
IF YOUR UNIT FAILS TO START:
See Troubleshooting on page 12.
FOLDING HANDLE
BLADE POSITION & DEPTH CONTROL LEVER
The blades can be raised or lowered into the ground by
height adjusment lever on the engine base. The height
adjuster lock lever must be pushed back against the
adjustment lever in order to lower the blades into the
ground. The resulting blade depth can be adjusted higher
or lower.
See ADJUSTING BLADE DEPTH.
BLADES UP
TRANSPORT
This unit is equipped with a folding upper handle for easier storage
and transportation. The handle can be folded by sliding the handle
lock loops(item 28) up. This releases the upper handle, allowing it to

RAKING/SLICING TIPS
Before begining, it is best to evaluate the condition of
the lawn by cutting one or more core samples from
area to be treated. A core can be cut using a piece of
pvc, or metal pipe. Hammer the pipe into the ground,
remove it, push the core out of the pipe and inspect it
to determine the depth of thatch in your yard.
THATCH: Thatch is a dense layer of dead grass,
clippings, and roots that builds up over time at the
base of of the lawn preventing air, water, and fertilizer
from reaching the soil. This can cause shallow root
development and make a lawn more susceptible to
drought and disease. Thatch also provides an ideal
environment for insects to hide and multiply. Periodic
removal of thatch will keep your lawn in good health.
HEAVY THATCH: Lawns with an excessive amount of
thatch will require multiple treatments for effective
removal. Trying to remove excessive thatch (greater
than 3/4"[19 mm] deep) in one treatment will damage
or destroy the living part of the lawn. It is best to
remove heavy thatch in seasonal treatments (i.e.
spring, and fall).
Fig. 2
RAKING OPERATION
DO NOT- Use this machine on any surface other than a
lawn.
DO NOT- Use this machine on slopes in excess of19°.
DO NOT- Allow persons unfamiliar with this equipment to
operate it.
DO NOT- Allow children to operate this equipment.
NOTE: Must have the flail reel assembly (350112) for
this operation.
SLOPES: Rake slopes across not up and down. This
is much easier and safer for the operator and is better
for the lawn. Raking across will help to reduce runoff
during watering and allow the sloped ground to hold
more seed, fertilizer, and water. The units maximum
operating slope is 35% or 19°.
DEPTH: The wide range of depth adjusment on your
unit is provided to allow for blade wear. Setting the
reel deeper will not produce better, or quicker results.
The flail reel is intended to be set so it just touches the
surface on flat ground. The slicing reel should be set
even with the ground for verti-slicing work, and set to a
maximum 1/2" depth for overseeding jobs. Setting the
reel deeper than this will only result in premature wear
on the unit (i.e. failed belt). If you desire to work the
ground deeper than the above guidlines allow, it
should be done gradually in multiple passes..
SLICING / OVERSEEDING: Mow the lawn to shorter
than the normal cut height before starting (i.e. approximately 2" tall for fescue grass). For the best result,
Slice/Overseed in criss cross pattern (See Fig. 1 and
See Fig 2).
MOW: Mow the lawn to it's normal cut height.
DRY: Be sure grass is dry. Wet conditions can cause
increased damage to healthy grass.
SET DEPTH: With engine off, set the raking depth so that
the blades just touch on a flat surface (i.e. driveway, or
sidewalk).
START ENGINE: See page 5 for further instruction.
ENGAGE BLADES: Pull back on the bail on the operators handle. NOTE: When engaging the blades in heavy
load conditions (i.e. heavy thatch, or very uneven turf),
push down on the operators handle lifting the front
wheels slightly. Engage the blades. Slowly lower the unit
into the turf.
RAKE: Rake a small test area and examine the results.
Thatch should be removed and deposited on top of the
healthy grass. If excessive damage occurs to healty
grass, adjust the blade depth to decrease damage.
Continue raking the yard, working in one direction (i.e.
north-south, or east-west). NOTE: If a large drop in
engine RPM occurs, or the unit pulls you forward and
bounces during operation the blade depth is set too low.
Fig. 1
Part No. 350324
REMOVE THATCH: After raking, a layer of thatch will be
deposited over the top of the lawn. This thatch must be
removed prior to any fertilizing, seeding, or watering of
the lawn. We suggest the use of a lawn vacuum or
wheeled blower for collection and removal of the thatch.

Engage the blades. Slowly lower the unit into the turf.
SLICE: Verti-cut a small test area and examine the results.
Some thatch and cut stems should be removed and deposited
on top of the healthy grass. Grass runners should be cut and
ready for removal. If excessive damage occurs to healthy
grass, adjust the blade depth to decrease damage. Continue
raking the yard, working in one direction (i.e. north-south, or
east-west). NOTE: If a large drop in engine RPM occurs, or
the unit pulls you forward and bounces during operation the
blade depth is set too low.
REMOVE THATCH/STEMS: After verti-cutting, a layer of
thatch and cut stems will be deposited over the top of the lawn.
We suggest the use of a lawn vacuum or wheeled blower for
collection and removal of the thatch/stems.
SET DEPTH: With engine off, set the raking depth so
that the blades reach 1/4"-1/2"(6-12 mm) below a flat
surface (i.e. driveway, or sidewalk).
START ENGINE: See Page 5.
ENGAGE CLUTCH: Pull back on the bail on the
operators handle. NOTE: When engaging the clutch in
heavy load conditions (i.e. heavy thatch, or very
uneven turf), push down on the operators handle lifting
the front wheels slightly. Engage the clutch. Slowly
lower the unit into the turf.
SLICE: Run machine over the area that has been
seeded to incorporate the seed into the soil. If excessive damage occurs to healthy grass, adjust the blade
depth to decrease damage. Continue raking the yard,
working in one direction (i.e. north-south, or east-west).
NOTE: If a large drop in engine RPM occurs, or the unit
pulls you forward and bounces during operation the
blade depth is set too low.
WATER/FERTILIZE: After the seed has been worked
into the soil, water and fertilize according to the seed
suppliers directions.

When servicing engine refer to specific manufacturers engine
owner's manual. All engine warranty is covered by the specific
engine manufacturer. If your engine requires warranty or other
repair work contact your local servicing engine dealer. When
contacting a dealer for service it is a good idea to have your engine
model number available for reference(See table page above). If
you can not locate a servicing dealer in your area you can contact
the manufacturers national service organization.
If engine is to be unused for 30 days or more, prepare as follows:
Remove all gasoline from carburetor and fuel tank to prevent
gum deposits from forming on these parts and causing possible
malfunction of engine. Drain fuel outdoors, into an approved
container, away from open flame. Be sure engine is cool. Do not
smoke. Run engine until fuel tank is empty and engine runs out of
gasoline.
NOTE: Fuel stabilizer (such as Sta-Bil) 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 mix ratio found on stabilizer
container. Run engine at least 10 min. after adding stabilizer to allow it to reach
the carburetor.
