SAFE OPERATION
Careful operation is your best insurance against an
accident. The owner/user can prevent and is responsible
for accidents or injuries occurring to themselves, other
people or property. Read and understand this manual
carefully before operating the machine. All operators, no
matter how much experience they may have had, must
read this and other related manuals before operating the
machine or any implement attached to it. It is the owner's
obligation to instruct all operators in safe operation.
If the operator(s) or mechanic(s) cannot read English it is
the owner's responsibility to explain this material to them.
This mowing machine is capable of amputating hands and
feet and throwing objects. Failure to observe the following
safety instructions could result in serious injury or death.
1. BEFORE OPERATING
1. The ZERO TURN MOWING MACHINE has different
steering characteristics than other machines with a
steering wheel and does not have a service brake
pedal (but, has a parking brake lock pedal that can be
used to stop the machine in an emergency. Normal
slowing down and stopping is done with the motion
control levers.). Read and understand the operators
manual before operating the machine. Practice
operating machine at low engine speed without mower
engaged in an unobstructed area.
2. Know your equipment and its limitations. Read all
instructions in this manual before attempting to start
and operate the machine.
3. Pay special attention to the danger, warning and
caution labels on the machine itself.
4. The ROPS is an integral and effective safety device.
KUBOTA recommends the use of a Roll Over
Protective Structures (ROPS) and seat belt in almost
all applications. This combination will reduce the risk
of serious injury or death, should the machine be
upset.
The machine is equipped with a Foldable ROPS,
which may be temporarily folded down only when
absolutely necessary for areas with height constraints.
There is no operator protection provided by the ROPS
in the folded position. For operator safety you must set
the ROPS in the upright and locked position and put on
the seat belt for all other operations.
DO NOT remove the ROPS.
If the ROPS is loosened or removed for any reason,
make sure that all parts are reinstalled correctly before
operating the machine.
Never modify or repair a ROPS because welding,
bending, drilling, grinding, or cutting may weaken the
structure.
If any structural member of the ROPS is damaged,
replace the entire structure at your local KUBOTA
Dealer. Any alterations to a ROPS must be approved
by the manufacturer.
Check the area to be mowed and never fold down a
folding ROPS in areas where there are slopes, drop
offs or water.
Check carefully for overhead clearances (i.e.
branches, doorways, electrical wires) before driving
under any objects and do not contact them.
Keep the ROPS in safe operating condition by
periodically thoroughly inspecting for damage and
keeping all mounting fasteners tight.

SAFE OPERATION
5. Always use the seat belt when the ROPS is upright. Do
not use the seat belt if the ROPS is down or if there is
no ROPS. Check the seat belt regularly and replace if
frayed or damaged. Be certain that the seat belt can be
released quickly in the event of an emergency.
6. Do not operate the machine or any attachments while
under the influence of alcohol, medication, controlled
substances or when fatigued.
7. Do not wear loose, torn, or bulky clothing around
machine. The clothing may catch on moving parts or
controls, leading to the risk of accident. Wear and use
any additional safety items such as hard hat, safety
boots or shoes, eye and hearing protection, gloves,
etc., as appropriate or required.
8. Do not wear radio or music headphones while
operating the machine.
Safe operation requires your full attention.
9. Carefully check the vicinity before operating machine
or any implement attached to it. Clear the work area of
objects (wires, rocks, etc.) that might be picked up and
thrown. Check for overhead clearance which may
interfere with a grass catcher.
10. Check brakes and other mechanical parts for correct
adjustment and wear. Replace worn or damaged parts
promptly. Check the tightness of all nuts and bolts
regularly. (For further details, see "PERIODIC
SERVICE" and "ADJUSTMENT" section.)
11. Keep all shields and guards in place. Replace any that
are damaged or missing. Do not operate unless they
are functioning properly.
12. Before allowing other people to use your machine,
explain how to operate and have them read this
manual before operation.
13. Do not allow any bystanders around or near machine
during operation.
14. Do not allow passengers, children or non-qualified
operators on the machine at any time. The operator
must remain in the machine seat throughout
operation.
15. In addition to the design and configuration of
equipment, hazard control and accident prevention
are dependent upon the awareness, concern, and
prudence of personnel involved in the operation,
transport, maintenance of facilities.
16. Evaluate the terrain to determine what accessories
and attachments are needed to properly and safely
perform the job. Keep the machine and attachments in
good operating condition and keep safety devices in
place and in proper working condition. Do not operate
unless they are functioning properly.
17. Do not modify the machine. Unauthorized modification
may affect the function of the machine, which may
result in personal injury.
18. Use only implements recommended by KUBOTA. Use
proper ballast to front or rear of machine to reduce the
risk of upsets. Follow the "SAFE OPERATION"
procedures, specified in the manuals with equipment.
19. Keep your machine clean. Accumulations of dirt,
grease, and trash can contribute to fires and lead to
personal injury.
20. The exhaust gas from the muffler is very hot. To
prevent fire, do not expose dry grass, mowed grass, oil
and any other combustible materials to exhaust gas.
Use a spark arrester where required. Also keep the
engine and muffler clean all the time.
2. OPERATING
C Starting
1. Always sit in the operator's seat when starting engine
or operating levers or controls.
2. Before starting the engine make sure that the motion
control levers are in neutral lock, the parking brake is
applied, and Power Take Off (PTO) is disengaged
(OFF).
3. Do not start engine by shorting across starter
terminals. The machine may start in gear and move if
normal starting circuitry is bypassed.
4. Do not operate or idle engine in a non-ventilated area.
Carbon monoxide gas is colorless, odorless, and
deadly.
C Working
1. Do not turn sharply when driving at high speed.
2. To avoid tip over, slow down when turning on uneven
terrain or before stopping.
3. Do not operate near ditches, holes, embankments, or
other terrain, which may collapse under the machine
weight. The risk of machine tip over increases when
the ground is loose or wet.
4. Park the machine on a firm and level surface.
5. Watch where you are going at all times. Watch for and
avoid obstacles. Be alert at curbs, shrubs, near trees,
and other obstructions and hidden hazards. Obstacles
can damage machine (fuel hoses, wire harness etc.).
6. Know what is behind you before backing up. Look to
the rear before and when backing. Do not mow while
in reverse unless absolutely necessary and make sure
the area immediately behind you is clear of
obstructions or holes and small children. Use extra
caution when machine is equipped with Grass
Catcher. Your view to the rear is restricted.
7. When working in groups, always let others know what
you are doing ahead of time.
8. Do not drive machine on streets or highways. Watch
for traffic when you cross roads or operate near roads.
9. Be aware of the mower discharge direction and do not
point it at anyone.
Never operate with the discharge deflector raised,
removed or altered, unless using a grass catcher.
10. When using any attachments, never direct discharge
material toward bystanders. Do not allow anyone and
pets near the attachments while in operation.
Do not mow when bystanders are present in the
mowing area.
11. To reduce fire hazards, keep the engine exhaust area
free of grass or leaves.
12. Be sure rotating blades and engine are stopped and
the key is removed before placing hands or feet near
blades and cleaning blockages or unclogging chute.
13. Keep hands and feet away from the cutting units. Shut
the engine off and wait for all movement to stop before
removing grass catcher or unclogging chute.
14. Always inspect the mower for damage after striking a
foreign object. Repair or replace any damaged parts
before restarting.
15. Operate during daylight or in bright artificial light.
16. If the machine starts to vibrate abnormally, disengage
the drive to the attachments, stop the engine and
remove the key. Then check the machine immediately.
17. Do not operate the machine when there is a possibility
of lightning. Even if the machine is equipped with a
cabin, the operator is not protected from lightning.
18. Never raise the deck with the blades running.
Stop blades if not mowing.
C Children
Tragic accidents can occur if the operator is not alert to
the presence of children. Children are attracted to the
machine and mowing activity.
Never assume that children will remain where you last
saw them.
1. Keep children out of the mowing area and under the
watchful care of another responsible adult.
2. Be alert and turn machine off if children enter the area.
3. Before and when backing, look behind and down for
small children.
4. Never carry children. They may fall off and be
seriously injured or interfere with safe machine
operation.
5. Never allow children to operate the machine, even
under adult supervision. Local regulation can restrict
the age of the operator.
6. Use extra care when approaching blind corners,
shrubs, trees, or other obstructions that might hide
children from sight.
7. Do not mow in reverse unless it is absolutely
necessary.
C Operators, age 60 years and above
Data indicates that operators, age 60 years and above,
are involved in a large percentage of machine-related
injuries. These operators must evaluate their ability to
operate the machine safely enough to protect themselves
and others from serious injury.
C Pulling loads
Use extra care when pulling loads to reduce the risk of
serious personal injury or death due to a machine tip-over.
-3
a) Pull only from the hitch. Never attach loads to the axle
housing or any other point above hitch.
b) Limit loads to those you can safely control.
c) Do not turn sharply.
d) Use care when backing.
e) Use front ballast or wheel weights when suggested in
this Operator's Manual.
A Stopping distance increases with speed and weight of
towed load. Travel slowly and allow extra time and
distance to stop.
A Never allow children or others in or on towed
equipment.
A Use additional caution when turning or operating
under adverse surface conditions.
C Operation on slopes
Slopes are major factor related to loss-of-control and tipover accidents, which can result in severe injury or death.
All slopes require extra caution.
If you cannot back up the slope or if you feel uneasy on it,
do not mow it.
If the engine stops when operating on a slope apply the
parking brake immediately to prevent machine run away.
DO
1. To avoid tip over, operate across the slopes not up and
down. Stay off hills and slopes too steep for safe
operation.
2. Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree limbs, etc.
3. Stay alert for holes in the terrain and other hidden
hazards. Keep away from drop-offs. Uneven terrain
could overturn the machine. Tall grass can hide
obstacles.
4. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for wheel
weight or counterweights to improve stability.
5. Keep all movement on the slopes slow and gradual.
Do not make sudden changes in speed or direction.
If tires lose traction, disengage PTO and proceed
slowly straight down the slope.
6. Reduce speed and exercise extreme caution on
slopes and in sharp turns to prevent tip-over or loss of
control.
ENGLISH

SAFE OPERATION
7. Use special caution when changing direction on
slopes. Slow down, and use extra caution when
changing direction on a slope.
DO NOT
1. Do not turn on slopes unless necessary. If necessary,
turn uphill slowly and gradually.
2. Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches, or embankments.
The mower could suddenly turn over if a wheel is over
the edge of cliff or ditch, or if an edge caves in.
3. Do not mow on wet grass. Reduced traction could
cause sliding and loss of control.
4. Do not try to stabilize the machine by putting your foot
on the ground.
5. Do not use grass catcher on steep slopes.
6. Do not start or stop suddenly on slopes. If tires lose
traction, disengage PTO and proceed slowly straight
down the slope.
7. Never "freewheel". Do not let the machine travel
downhill with motion control levers at neutral lock
position or in neutral.
8. Do not operate machine without the mower deck
installed.
C Stopping
1. Park the machine on level ground.
2. Make sure that the machine and all attachments have
come to a complete stop before you get off.
3. Before you get off, apply parking brake, place the
motion control levers in their neutral lock positions,
disengage the PTO, lower all attachments to the
ground, turn off the engine, and remove the key.
4. Do not park the machine on dry grass or leaves.
5. TRANSPORTING
1. Disengage power to attachment(s) when transporting
or not in use.
2. Do not tow this machine. Use a suitable truck or trailer
when transporting on public roads.
3. Use extra care when loading or unloading the machine
into a trailer or truck. Use full width ramps for loading
machine into trailer or truck.
4. This machine is not allowed to be used on public
roads.
5. Shut off fuel while storing or transporting.
6. Tie the machine down securely using straps, chains,
cable, or ropes.
7. Both front and rear straps must be directed down and
outward from the machine.
6. SERVICING AND STORAGE
C Servicing
1. Before servicing, park the machine on a firm, level
surface and apply the parking brake. Remove the key
to prevent accidental start-up.
2. Allow the machine time to cool before touching the
engine, muffler, radiator, etc.
3. Always stop the engine before refueling. Avoid spills
and overfilling. Wipe up spilled fuel immediately.
3. USING THE PTO
1. Before installing or using PTO-driven equipment, read
the manufacturer's manual and review the safety
labels attached to the equipment.
2. Wait until all moving components have completely
stopped before connecting, disconnecting, adjusting,
cleaning, or servicing any PTO-driven equipment.
3. Use the PTO with KUBOTA approved attachments.
The speed of PTO:
ZD1011 / ZD1021 Without mower: 2450 to 2550 rpm at
3200 engine rpm
4. USING THE LIFT LINK
1. Use lift link only with authorized attachments designed
for lift link usage.
(1) Fuel tank cap
4. Use extra care in handling diesel fuels. They are
flammable.
(1) Use only an approved container.
(2) Do not remove fuel cap or refuel with the engine
running. Allow engine to cool before refueling. Do
not smoke while refueling or when standing near
fuel.
(3) Do not refuel the machine indoors and always
clean up spilled fuel or oil.
(4) Do not store the machine or fuel container inside
where there is an open flame, such as in a water
heater.
-5
ENGLISH
SAFE OPERATION
5. Do not smoke when working around battery or when
refueling. Extinguish all cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and
other sources of ignition. Keep all sparks and flames
away from battery and fuel tank.
Never fill containers inside a vehicle or on a truck or
trailer bed with a plastic liner.
Always place containers on the ground away from
your vehicle before filling.
Remove equipment from the truck or trailer and refuel
it on the ground.
If this is not possible, then refuel such equipment with
a portable container, rather than from a fuel dispenser
nozzle.
Keep the nozzle in contact with the rim of the fuel tank
or container opening at all times until fueling is
complete.
Do not use a nozzle lock open device.
If fuel is spilled on clothing, change clothing
immediately.
Replace fuel cap and tighten securely.
Charge batteries in an open well ventilated area, away
from spark and flames.
A battery, especially when charging, will give off
hydrogen and oxygen gases, which can explode and
cause serious personal injury.
Unplug charger before connecting or disconnecting
from battery.
6. Before "jump starting" a dead battery, read and follow
all the instructions.
7. Disconnect battery or remove spark plug wire before
making any repairs. Disconnect the negative terminal
first and the positive last. Reconnect positive first and
negative last. Wear protective clothing and use
insulated tools.
(1) Battery
(2) Ground cable
(+): Positive terminal
(-): Negative terminal
8. Do not use or charge the refillable type battery if the
fluid level is below the LOWER (lower limit level) mark.
Otherwise, the battery component parts may
prematurely deteriorate, which may shorten the
battery's service life or cause an explosion. Check the
fluid level regularly and add distilled water as required
so that the fluid level is between the UPPER and
LOWER levels.
9. Keep first aid kit and fire extinguisher handy at all
times.
ENGLISH
-6
SAFE OPERATION
10. Do not remove the radiator cap while coolant is hot.
When cool, slowly rotate cap to the first stop and allow
sufficient time for excess pressure to escape before
removing the cap completely. If the machine has a
coolant recovery tank, add coolant there instead of the
radiator.
11. Do not attempt to mount a tire on a rim unless qualified
to do so and all proper safety precautions are followed.
Never allow untrained personnel to service machine.
12. Always maintain the correct tire inflation pressure. Do
not inflate tires above the recommended pressure
shown in the Operator's Manual.
16. Fluid escaping from pinholes may be invisible. Use a
piece of cardboard or wood to search for suspected
leaks: do not use hands. Use safety goggles or other
eye protection.
If you get injured by escaping fluid, see a medical
doctor at once. Serious infection or reaction will result
if proper medical treatment is not administered
immediately. This fluid can produce gangrene or
severe allergic reaction.
(1) Cardboard
(2) Hydraulic line
(3) Magnifying glass
13. Provide adequate support when changing wheels.
14. Make sure that wheel nuts and bolts have been
tightened to the specified torque.
15. Escaping hydraulic fluid under pressure has sufficient
force to penetrate the skin causing serious personal
injury. Before disconnecting lines, be sure to relieve all
pressure. Before applying pressure to the system,
make sure all connections are tight and that lines,
pipes, and hoses are not damaged.
17. Keep hands and feet away from moving parts. If

the blade(s) or wear gloves, and use extra caution
when servicing them. Never straighten or weld blades.
22. Keep nuts and bolts, especially blade attachment
bolts, tight and keep equipment in good condition.
23. Never tamper with safety devices. Check their
operation for proper function regularly.
24. Waste products such as used oil, fuel, coolant, brake
fluid, and batteries, can harm the environment, people,
pets and wildlife. Please dispose of properly.
25. Do not use beverage containers for waste fluids or
other products. Someone, particularly children, may
drink them by mistake.
26. Securely support machine or any machine elements
with stands or suitable blocking before working
underneath. For your safety do not rely on
hydraulically supported devices, they may leak down,
suddenly drop or be accidently lowered.
27. See your local Recycling Center or KUBOTA Dealer to
learn how to recycle or get rid of waste products.

OPERATING THE ENGINE
WARMING UP
JUMP STARTING
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Be sure to apply the parking brake during
warm-up.
For 5 minutes after engine start-up, allow the engine to
warm up without applying any load. This is to allow oil to
reach every engine part. If load should be applied to the
engine without this warm-up period, the troubles such as
seizure, breakage or premature wear may develop.
BWarm-up and Transmission Oil in the Low
Temperature Range
Hydraulic oil serves as transmission oil. In cold weather,
the oil may be cold with increased viscosity. This can
cause delayed oil circulation or abnormally low hydraulic
pressure for some time after engine start-up. This in turn
can result in a trouble in the hydraulic system or a damage
to the hydraulic clutch.
To prevent the above, observe the following instructions:
Warm up the engine at about 50% of rated rpm according
to the table below:
Ambient temperature
Higher than 0
-10 to 0
-20 to -10
Warm-up time requirement
(32
)
Approx. 5 minutes
(14 to 32
)
5 to 10 minutes
(-4 to 14
Below -20
(-4
)
)
10 to 15 minutes
More than 15 minutes
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Battery gases can explode. Keep cigarettes,
sparks, and flames away from battery.
A If the machine battery is frozen, do not jump
start the engine.
A Do not connect the other end of negative
jumper cable to the negative terminal of the
machine battery.
When jump starting the engine, follow the instructions
below to start the engine safely.
1. Bring a helper vehicle with a battery of the same
voltage as the disabled machine within easy cable
reach. "THE VEHICLES MUST NOT TOUCH".
2. Apply the parking brakes of both vehicles and put the
shift levers in neutral. Shut the engine off.
3. Put on safety goggles and rubber gloves.
4. Ensure vent caps are securely in place (if equipped).
5. Attach the red clamp to the positive (red, (+) or pos.)
terminal of the dead battery and clamp the other end
of the same cable to the positive (red, (+) or pos.)
terminal of the helper battery.
6. Clamp the other cable to the negative (black, (-) or
neg.) terminal of the helper battery.
7. Clamp the other end to the engine block or the frame
of the disabled machine as far from the dead battery
as possible.
8. Start the helper vehicle and let its engine run for a few
moments. Start the disabled machine.
9. Disconnect the jumper cables in the exact reverse
order of attachment. (Steps 7, 6 and 5)
A Do not operate unless the engine is well warmed up. If
operation is attempted while the engine is still cold, the
hydraulic mechanism will not function properly and its
service life will be shortened.
A If noises are heard after the hydraulic control lever has
been activated and the implement is lifting, the
hydraulic mechanism is not adjusted properly. Unless
corrected, the unit will be damaged. Contact your local
KUBOTA Dealer for adjustment.
(1) Dead battery
(2) Jumper cables
(3) Engine block or frame
(4) Helper battery
Connect cables in numerical order.
Disconnect in reverse order after
use.
A This machine has a 12 volt negative (-) ground starting
system.
A Use only same voltage for jump starting.
A Use of a higher voltage source on a machine could
result in severe damage to the machine electrical
system.
Use only matching voltage source when "jumpstarting" a low or dead battery condition.

OPERATING THE MACHINE
OPERATING NEW MACHINE
How a new machine is operated and maintained
determines the life of the machine.
A new machine just off the factory production line has
been, of course, tested, but the various parts are not
"broken-in" and are not accustomed to each other, so care
must be taken to operate the machine for the first 50 hours
at a slower speed and avoid excessive work or operation
until the various parts become "broken-in." The manner in
which the machine is handled during the "breaking-in"
period greatly affects the life of your machine. Therefore,
to obtain the maximum performance and the longest life
of the machine, it is very important to properly break-in
your machine. In handling a new machine, the following
precautions must be observed.
BChanging Lubricating Oil for New
Machines
The lubricating oil is especially important in the case of a
new machine. The various parts are not "broken-in" and
are not accustomed to each other; small metal grit may
develop during the operation of the machine; and this may
wear out or damage the parts. Therefore, care must be
taken to change the lubricating oil a little earlier than
would ordinarily be required.
For further details of change interval hours.
(See "SERVICE INTERVALS" in "MAINTENANCE"
section.)
BEngine Break-in
After the first 50 hours of operation, change the engine oil
and
filter.
(See
"EVERY
200
HOURS"
in
"MAINTENANCE" section.)
BMachine Break-in
After the first 400 hours of operation, change the
transmission fluid. (See "EVERY 400 HOURS" in
"MAINTENANCE" section.)
After the first 50 hours of operation, change the oil filter.
(See "EVERY 200 HOURS" in "MAINTENANCE"
section.)
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Do not operate the mower without the deflector
shield in the down position.
To avoid serious injury or death:
A The machine relies upon the engine driven
transmission for speed, direction and steering
control. If the engine is not running, the
machine cannot be driven or controlled.
If the engine stops when operating on a slope,
apply the parking brake immediately to prevent
machine runaway.
A Do not allow any person other than the driver to
ride on the machine.
A Do not drive the machine close to the edges of
ditches or banks which may collapse under the
weight of the machine, especially when the
ground is loose or wet.
A When turning the machine, be sure to reduce
the travel speed and operate motion control
levers carefully.
A To avoid tip over, operate across slopes, not up
and down. Avoid sudden starts and stops on
slopes. Slow down, and use extra caution when
changing direction on a slope.
Park the machine on a firm and level surface.
A Watch where you are going at all times. Watch
for and avoid obstacles. Be alert at curbs, near
trees, and other obstructions and hidden
hazards.
A Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches or
embankments. The mower could turn over if a
wheel is over the edge of cliff or ditch, or if an
edge caves in.
A Do not drive machine on streets or highways.
Watch for traffic when you cross roads or
operate near roads.
A Look to the rear before and when backing.
Make sure the area immediately behind you is
clear of obstructions or holes and small
children. Use extra caution when machine is
equipped with Grass Catcher.
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Clear the work area of objects which might be
picked up and thrown by blades.

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR MOWER
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Clear the work area of objects which might be
picked up and thrown by blades.
A Keep bystanders and animals away from the
mowing area.
A Be sure to disengage the PTO and sit on the
operator's seat before starting the engine.
1. When using your mower for the first time, choose a
smooth level area and cut in straight and slightly
overlapping strips.
2. The size and type of the area to be mowed will
determine the proper mowing pattern. Take into
account obstructions, such as trees, fences and
buildings. To keep grass clippings off fences,
sidewalks, etc., it is advisable to go over the outside of
the area to be mowed several times in a clockwise
direction. To mow the area remaining, work in a
counterclockwise direction so that the clippings are
dispersed onto the previously cut area.
5. For best appearance, grass must be cut in the
afternoon or evening when it is free of moisture.
ADJUSTING CUTTING HEIGHT
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Do not engage the mower in the transport
position.
1. Before adjusting cutting height, check that all tire
pressures are correct. If necessary adjust to the
correct tire pressure.
(1) Lift lock lever
: "LOCK"
: "UNLOCK"
2. To set the cutting height, keep depressing the
hydraulic lift control pedal firmly to raise mower deck
to the top position. Make sure that the lift lock lever is
in unlock position. Adjust the cutting height control dial
to desired height.
3. Always keep the left side of the mower toward trees,
posts or other obstacles on the first trip around the
obstacle.
4. Most lawns must be mowed to keep the grass
approximately 50 to 80 mm (2 to 3 in.) high. Best
results are obtained by cutting often and not too short.
To keep a green lawn, never mow more than 1/3 of the
height of the grass or a maximum of 25 mm (1 in.) in 1
mowing.
For extremely tall grass, set the cutting height at
maximum cutting height for the first mowing, then
reset to the desired height and mow again. Allow the
grass to grow to 80 mm (3 in.), then cut off only the top
inch.
3. Use the higher settings for mowing in a rough area or
when mowing tall grass. Lower settings must be used
only for smooth lawns where short grass is desired.
(1) Anti-scalp roller (Front)

4. Lower the mower deck by releasing the hydraulic lift
control pedal. This lowers the mower deck from the
"TRANSPORT" position to the "OPERATING"
position.
5. Adjust the anti-scalp rollers' height as recommended
below for normal operating condition. To minimize
gouging and roller damage or wear, the anti-scalp
rollers will maintain the ground clearance of 19 mm (3/
4 in.).
A Never allow roller to contact the ground continuously
as premature roller wear may develop if set
incorrectly.
A Anti-scalp rollers must maintain a minimum clearance
of 6 mm (0.24 in.) to the ground.

BChecking Engine Oil Level
BChecking Amount of Fuel and Refueling
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Always stop the engine and remove the key
before checking oil.
1. Check engine oil before starting and 5 minutes or more
after the engine has stopped.
2. Wipe dipstick area clean.
3. To check the oil level, remove the dipstick, wipe it
clean, replace it, and draw it out again. Check to see
that the oil level is between the 2 notches.
4. Add new oil to the prescribed level at the oil port if
necessary.
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Handle fuel carefully. If the engine is running,
do not fill the fuel tank. If engine is hot, let
engine cool several minutes before adding fuel.
Do not smoke while filling the fuel tank or
servicing the fuel system. Fill fuel tank only to
bottom of filler neck.
Check the fuel level. Take care that the fuel tank does not
become empty.
(1) Engine oil port
(2) Oil level dipstick
(A) "UPPER LEVEL"
(B) "LOWER LEVEL"
5. When using a different brand or viscosity oil from the
previous one, remove all of the old oil and oil filter.
Never mix 2 different types of oil.
6. Use the proper Engine Oil SAE according to the
ambient temperatures. (See "LUBRICANTS, FUEL
AND COOLANT" in "PERIODIC SERVICE" section.)
Fuel tank capacity
23 L (6.1 U.S.gals.)
A Use Diesel Fuel Only
1. Use No.2 diesel fuel.
2. Use No.1 diesel fuel if the temperature is below
-10 (14 ).
3. Always use a strainer when refueling to prevent fuel
injection pump contamination.
A Do not permit dirt or trash or water to get into the fuel
system.
A Be careful not to let the fuel tank become empty,
otherwise air will enter the fuel system, necessitating
bleeding before next engine start.
A Be careful not to spill fuel during refueling. If a spill
should occur, wipe it off at once, or it may cause a fire.
A To prevent condensation (water accumulation) in the
fuel tank, fill the tank before parking overnight.

level at the oil inlet.
(See "LUBRICANTS, FUEL AND COOLANT" in
"PERIODIC SERVICE" section.)
(1) Oil level dipstick
(2) Oil plug and breather cup
BChecking Coolant Level
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Do not remove the radiator cap when the
engine is hot. Then loosen cap slightly to the
stop to relieve any excess pressure before
removing cap completely.
Check the coolant level daily for both the radiator and the
recovery tank before starting engine.
1. Remove the radiator cap and check to see that the
coolant level is just below the fill port.
2. Check to see that the coolant level is between the
"FULL" and "LOW" marks of recovery tank.
3. When the coolant level drops due to evaporation, add
water only up to just below the fill port of the radiator
and the full level of the recovery tank.
In case of leakage, add anti-freeze and water in the
specified mixing ratio up to the full level.
(See "Flushing Cooling System and Changing
Coolant" in "EVERY 2000 HOURS or EVERY 2
YEARS" in "MAINTENANCE" section.)
4. Check radiator hoses for wear, cracks, bubbles or
leaks. If any such are founded, repair immediately.
(See "Replacing Radiator Hose" in "EVERY 4 YEARS"
in "MAINTENANCE" section.)
(A) Oil level is acceptable
within this range.
A If oil level is low, do not run engine.
(1) Recovery tank
(2) Radiator cap
(3) Drain plug
(A) "FULL"
(B) "LOW"
A Start engine with the hood closed.
A If the radiator cap has to be removed, follow the

radiator and the recovery tank.
A If water should leak, consult your local KUBOTA
Dealer.
BChecking and Cleaning Radiator Screen
and Hood Screen
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Engine components can get extremely hot from
operation. To prevent severe burns, do not
touch these areas while the engine is running,
or immediately after it is turned off.
Never operate the engine without heat shields
or guards.
(1) Radiator screen
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Be sure to stop the engine and remove the key
before cleaning.
A The air intake area must be clear of debris to prevent
the engine from overheating.
Daily or after every 5 hours of operation, check to be sure
the radiator screen and the hood screen are clean.
Dirt or chaff on the radiator screen, hood screen or
radiator decrease cooling performance.
1. Remove the radiator screen and the hood screen, and
remove all foreign material.
2. Remove the dust from between the fins and the tube.
3. Tighten the fan drive belt as necessary. For this, refer
to "EVERY 100 HOURS" in "MAINTENANCE" section.
4. If the scale forms in the tube, clean with the scale
inhibitor or its equivalent.
5. Each time the hood screen is covered with grass
during operation, rub it off the screen with the hand.
Check the radiator screen from time to time if grass
accumulates.
6. If the dust or chaff has accumulated inside of the hood,
remove the radiator screen and clean inside
completely.
After cleaning, replace the radiator screen properly.
7. Check the radiator for dust or chaff build up.
If the dust or chaff has accumulated in the radiator,

BChecking Battery Condition
To avoid the possibility of battery explosion:
For the refillable type battery, follow the
instructions below.
A Do not use or charge the refillable type battery
if the fluid level is below the LOWER (lower limit
level) mark. Otherwise, the battery component
parts may prematurely deteriorate, which may
shorten the battery's service life or cause an
explosion. Check the fluid level regularly and
add distilled water as required so that the fluid
level is between the UPPER and LOWER levels.
(A) 17 ramp
A For parking brake test purposes, only use 17 ramp.
BGreasing
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Be sure to stop the engine and remove the key
before greasing.
Grease the following location.
If you operated the machine in extremely wet and muddy
conditions, lubricate grease fittings more often.
(1) Mower link bushing
To avoid serious injury or death:
A When the battery is being activated, hydrogen
and oxygen gases in the battery are extremely
explosive. Keep open sparks and flames away
from the battery at all times, especially when
charging the battery.
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Batteries, battery posts, terminals and related
accessories contain lead and lead compounds,
and other chemicals known to the State of
California to cause cancer and birth defects or
other reproductive harm. WASH HANDS
AFTER HANDLING.
A Never remove the battery cap while the engine
is running.
A Keep electrolyte away from eyes, hands and
clothes. If you are spattered with it, wash it
away completely with water immediately and
get medical attention.
A Keep open sparks and flames away from the
battery at all times. Hydrogen gas mixed with
oxygen becomes very explosive.
A Wear eye protection and rubber gloves when
working around battery.
The factory-installed battery is of non-refillable type.
If the battery is weak, charge the battery or replace it
with new one.
A Mishandling the battery shortens the service life and
adds to maintenance costs.
The original battery is maintenance free, but needs
some servicing.
If the battery is weak, the engine will be difficult to start
and the lights will be dim. It is important to check the
battery periodically.
A When exchanging an old battery for a new one, use
battery of equal specification in table below.

To avoid serious injury or death:
A When disconnecting the cable from the battery,
start with the negative terminal first. When
connecting the cable to the battery, start with
the positive terminal first.
A Never check battery charge by placing a metal
object across the posts.
Use a voltmeter or hydrometer.
(For non-accessible maintenance-free type batteries.)
Maintenance-free, non-accessible batteries are designed
to eliminate the need to add water. Yet the volume of
electrolyte above plates may eventually become depleted
due to abnormal conditions such as high heat or improper
regulator setting. Use a voltmeter to check the state of
charge. (See reference chart below to determine if
charging is necessary.)

the negative to the negative, then charge for at least 1
hour at 4.5 amperes.
2. A boost charge is only for emergencies. It will partially
charge the battery at a high rate and in a short time.
When using a boost-charged battery, it is necessary to
recharge the battery as early as possible.
Failure to do this will shorten the battery's service life.
3. When the specific gravity of electrolyte is between
1.27 and 1.29 the charging is completed.
C Battery for storage
1. When storing the machine for a long period, remove
the battery from machine, adjust the electrolyte to the
proper level and store in a dry place out of direct
sunlight.
2. The battery self-discharges while it is stored.
Recharge it once every 3 months in hot seasons and
once every 6 months in cold seasons.

STORAGE
To avoid serious injury or death:
A Do not clean the machine with engine running.
A To avoid the danger of exhaust fume
poisoning, do not operate the engine in a
closed building without proper ventilation.
A When storing, remove the key to avoid
unauthorized persons from operating the
machine and getting injured.
MACHINE STORAGE
If you intend to store your machine for an extended period
of time, follow the procedures outlined below. These
procedures will insure that the machine is ready to
operate with minimum preparation when it is removed
from storage,
1. Check for loose bolts and nuts, and tighten if
necessary.
2. Apply grease to machine areas where bare metal will
rust also to pivot areas.
3. Inflate the tires to a pressure a little higher than usual.
4. Change the engine oil and run the engine to circulate
oil throughout the engine block and internal moving
parts for about 5 minutes.
5. With all implements lowered to the ground, coat any
exposed hydraulic cylinder piston rods with grease.
6. Remove the battery from the machine. When
disconnecting the cables from the battery, start with
the negative terminal first. When connecting the
cables to the battery, start with the positive terminal
first.
7. Keep the machine in a dry place where the machine is
sheltered from rain. Cover the machine.
8. Store the machine indoors in a dry area that is
protected from sunlight and excessive heat. If the
machine must be stored outdoors, cover it with a
waterproof tarpaulin.
9. Jack the machine up and place blocks under the front
and rear axles so that all 4 tires are off the ground.
Keep the tires out of direct sunlight and extreme heat.
A When washing the machine, be sure to stop the
engine. Allow sufficient time for the engine to cool
before washing.
A Cover the machine after the muffler and the engine
have cooled down.
REMOVING THE MACHINE FROM
STORAGE
1. Check the tire air pressure and inflate the tires if they
are low.
2. Jack the machine up and remove the support blocks.
3. Install the battery. Before installing the battery, make
sure it is fully charged.
4. Check the fan belt tension.
5. Check all fluid levels (engine oil, transmission/
hydraulic oil, engine coolant and any attached
implements).
6. Check all coolant, hydraulic and fuel hoses for cracks,
hardening, bubbles and leaks.
7. Check all control levers and the brake for proper
function, repair or lubricate as necessary.
8. Start the engine. Observe all gauges. If all gauges are
functioning properly and reading normal, move the
machine outside.
9. Once outside, park the machine securely set the
parking brake, place the control levers in the neutral
lock position and let the engine idle for at least 5
minutes.
10. Shut the engine off and walk around machine and
make a visual inspection looking for evidence of oil or
water leaks.
11. With the engine fully warmed up, release the parking
brake and test the brakes for proper adjustment as you
move forward. Adjust the brakes as necessary.
