5. CHOKE: For cold starts, set the throttle lever to the half-open position and pull the choke out to the ON
position. For warm starts set the throttle to the half-open position and the choke to the OFF position.
This unit is not self propelled by a mechanical drive system. However, under some conditions the reel
(blade) rotation may cause the unit to move under it own power.
Engage the reel ONLY when you are in the operator's position behind the handle
The clutch bail is designed to be held by the operator to keep the reel belt engaged ONLY during
use. DO NOT clamp or fasten the bail to the handle. If the reel is allowed to rotate while the
operator is not in the proper operating position, the unit may move on its own. This will create an
unsafe situation in which the operator and/or bystanders may be injured.
When replacement parts are required, use genuine Ryan parts or parts with equivalent characteristics,
including type, strength and material. Failure to do so may result in product malfunction and possible
injury to the operator and/or bystanders.

reels and suggested uses
1/8" (3 mm) Fixed Blade Reel, Part No. 545440
2" (51 mm) blade spacing is excellent for general
dethatching, renovating and breaking up cores.
1/16" (1.6 mm) Fixed Blade Reel, Part No. 547452
Blades can be spaced on 1" (25 mm) or 1-1/2"
(38 mm) centers with the use of spacers
between the blades. Use the 1" blade spacing
for renovating heavy grass areas or preparing
a lawn for re-seeding. Use the 1 1/2" (38 mm)
blade spacing for renovating and thinning coarse
stemmed grasses.
1/32" (0.8 mm) Fixed Blade Reel, Part No. 547453
3/4" (19 mm) blade spacing is excellent for thatch
and grain control on fine bent grasses, vertical
slicing, renovating and seed bed preparation.
Flail Blade Reel, Part No. 544440
1/8" (3 mm) flail blades for thatch control and
breaking up soil cores after aerating. This reel is
NOT RECOMMENDED for fine lawns and turf,

ADJUSTMENTS
Blade height adjustment
Blade height is adjusted by loosening the locking
lever L and turning the adjusting knob M to raise
or lower the front wheels.
After installing any reel, make the first adjustment
on a hard level surface.
Adjust the blades to 1/8" (3 mm) above the
surface. Test this setting on a small area, then
adjust the blades to turf conditions as required.
Each number on the adjustment decal represents
a change of 1/8" (3mm).
If the desired blade position cannot be obtained
by adjusting the front wheels, the rear wheels
can be adjusted. Mounting the wheels in the top
hole lowers the blades and mounting the wheels
in the bottom hole raises the blades.
The front axle may be locked in the down
position to prevent the floating action if desired.
Install and secure 1/2" screws, washers, lock
washers and nuts in the slots above the axle.
This will prevent the axle from moving.
belt guard rod adjustment

BELT/BLADE REPLACEMENT
REN-O-THIN
BELT REPLACEMENT
Belt tension is maintained by a spring loaded
idler, controlled by the clutch bail. No belt tension
adjustment is necessary when proper belts are
used.
NOTE: A matched pair of belts must be used for
correct operation. If one belt needs to be replaced,
you MUST replace both belts to assure proper belt
tension.
1.Remove belt guards and old belts from unit.
2. Place the new belts between the idler pulley E
and the snubber F on the idler arm and then over
the engine and reel pulleys.
3.Install the belt guards. Make sure the belt guide
rods G are outside of the belt.
blade replacement
Fixed Blade Reels - To replace worn or damaged
blades or to change to different blade and/or
spacer combination.
1.Remove reel assembly from chassis.
2. Remove bearing from end of shaft (opposite
the pulley end). Loosen the set screw securing
the locking collar. With a small punch, tap the
bearing approximately one quarter turn in the
opposite direction of the reel rotation. This
relieves the cam lock action of the bearing so it
can be removed from the shaft.
3. Hold the shaft to keep it from turning and remove
the shaft nut. Remove the blades and spacers
from the shaft and replace or rearrange as
required.
NOTE: When reassembling the reel, it is important to
start and end with a spacer. DO NOT assemble
with a blade next to the shaft nut at either end.
NOTE: Blades that are worn on one cutting face may
be reversed and used again.
Flail Blade reels
Work on only one of the six blade shaft
assemblies at a time.
1.Remove reel assembly from chassis.
2.Remove the cotter pin from one end of one of the
blade shafts and pull the shaft out.
3. Replace the blades and other worn parts and
re-assemble in the proper order while sliding the
shaft back into place.
4.Replace blades only in sets to maintain balance.
5.Install a new cotter pin to secure the shaft.
Fixed blades must be placed on the shaft in a
pattern 60o off center from the previous blade.
4.Re-install the shaft nut and tighten securely to
keep the blades from coming loose.
5.Re-install the reel bearing by exactly reversing
the steps taken to remove it.
