Only use accessories and attachments approved by the manufacturer. – Clear the area to be mowed of objects such as rocks, toys, wire or other debris that may be picked up or thrown by the mower. – Be sure the area is clear of pets and people, especially young children. Never assume they will remain where you last saw them. Stop the machine if any enter the area. – Mow only in daylight or in good artificial light. – Do not mow wet grass as tires may lose traction. SAFETY WOODS MACHINE OPERATION OPERATING SAFELY – Check operator present interlock system and brake operation. Adjust or repair any problems before using. In general – Use extra care when loading or unloading the machine onto a trailer or truck. – Do not tamper with or defeat safety devices. Keep guards, shields and interlock safety devices in place and in proper working condition. They are for your protection. – Watch out for traffic when near or crossing roadways. – Keep all fasteners such as nuts, bolts and pins well secured. – Visually inspect blades, blade bolts and the cutter assembly for wear or damage. Replace worn or damaged blades and bolts to preserve balance. – Verify that machine and attachments, if any, are in good operating condition. – Do not engage blades until ready to mow. – Do not run the engine in an enclosed area where dangerous carbon monoxide fumes can collect. – Do not place your foot on the ground while operating the machine. – Before operating, lower the discharge chute, install the mulcher or put the entire grass catcher in place. – Keep clear of the discharge opening at all times. Never direct the discharge toward a bystander. Stop operation if someone approaches. – Keep washout ports and other mower housing service openings closed when mowing. – Use care when pulling loads or using heavy equipment. - Use only approved drawbar hitch points. - Limit loads to those you can safely control. - Do not turn sharply. Use care when reversing. - Use counterweight(s) or wheel weights when suggested in the operator's manual. – Never leave a machine unattended. Always turn off blades, set parking brake, stop engine and remove keys before dismounting. Starting – Start only according to instructions in this manual or on the machine. – Before attempting to start the engine, make sure: - the parking brake is on; - the PTO is disengaged; - the traction drive is in NEUTRAL. – When starting the engine, make sure hands and feet are clear of the blades. – Do not start the machine while standing in front of the discharge chute or with the chute directed at someone. – Do not engage PTO at full throttle. Throttle to idle or lowest possible engine speed. – Do not change engine governor settings or overspeed the engine. Operating the engine at excessive speed can increase the hazard of personal injury. 7 SAFETY Interrupting operation MANEUVERING SAFELY – In general – Slow down before turning. Before leaving the operator's position: - Park on level ground; - Disengage the PTO; - Set the parking brake; - Shut off the engine and remove the key. – Disengage the PTO and wait until the blades quit rotating: - before raising cutterdeck; - when not mowing; - for transport; - when crossing surfaces other than grass. – Stop the engine, disengage the PTO and wait until the blades quit rotating: - before refueling; - before removing grass catcher; - before making height adjustment unless the adjustment can be made from the operator's position. – Stop the engine, disengage the PTO and disconnect the spark plug wire(s) or remove the key: - before clearing blockages or unclogging chute; - before checking, cleaning or working on the machine; - after striking a foreign object. Inspect the machine for damage and make repairs before restarting. - if the machine begins to vibrate abnormally: Inspect and make repairs as needed before restarting; - except for repairs or adjustments as specifically noted, such as for carburetor adjustment, where the engine must be running. Keep hands and feet clear of moving parts in these circumstances. – Allow the blades to come to a complete stop when stopping operation to clear blockages, unclog, inspect the machine, do maintenance or repair. – Reduce the throttle setting during engine shutdown and, if the engine is provided with a shutoff valve, turn the fuel off at the conclusion of mowing. 8 WOODS – Do not mow in reverse unless absolutely necessary. Always look behind and down for small children and pets before and during backing. – Be aware when approaching blind corners, shrubs, trees, tall grass or other objects that may obscure vision. – If tires lose traction, disengage the blades. If on a slope, head down. SAFETY WOODS MOWING SLOPES WARNING for wheel weights or counterweights to improve stability. Slopes are a major factor in loss-of-control and tipover accidents that sometimes lead to severe injury or death. All slopes require extra caution. Rollover Protection Structure (ROPS) – Do not mow on slopes if uneasy or uncertain. Ultimate reponsibility for safe operation on slopes rests with the operator. • If a ROPS is installed and the machine is – Do not mow excessively steep slopes. – With ride-on machines, including articulated steering machines, mow up and down slopes, not across, except for zero turn machines. Zero turn machines should mow across slopes. – With walk-behind machines, always mow across slopes, not up and down. – Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If tires lose traction, disengage the blades and proceed slowly straight down the slope. – With a zero turn machine, if tires lose traction going down a slope, steering control may be regained by speeding up. – Mid-mount zero turns (belly mounted deck) have much greater traction pointed up slope than down slope. Be aware that traction may be lost going down a slope. Do not operate a mid-mount zero turn on slopes it cannot back up. – Keep all movement on the slopes slow and gradual. Do not make sudden changes in speed or direction. – Do not turn on slopes unless necessary, and then turn slowly and downhill when possible. – Stay away from slopes if the ground is loose or if caught in the rain during mowing. • Fixed and folding Rollover Protection Structures (ROPS) are available as optional accessories for this machine. overturning, hold onto the steering levers. Do not attempt to jump out or leave the seat. Wear the seatbelt. SEAT BELT USEAGE Fixed ROPS • WEAR the seat belt whenever a fixed ROPS is installed. Always keep seat belt snugly adjusted. DO NOT use seat belts on a machine without a ROPS. Folding ROPS ROPS in Vertical Position • The ROPS should be in the vertical position for normal operation. WEAR the seatbelt when the ROPS is in the vertical position. ROPS in Folded Position • A folding ROPS allows the overall height of the machine to be reduced for increased clearance to get into a low ceiling height trailer or under low hanging branches. DO NOT wear the seatbelt when the ROPS is folded. Stop the machine and restore the ROPS to the vertical position as soon as the need for increased clearance is past. – Use lower speeds on a slope to avoid stopping or shifting. – Use extra care with grass catchers or other attachments. These can change the stability of the machine. – Avoid driving over ruts, holes, rocks and roots whenever possible. Be alert to dips and rises. Uneven terrain can overturn a mower or cause it to slide. – Do not mow dropoffs, ditches or embankments. The machine could suddenly turn over if a wheel runs over the edge or an edge caves in. A ROPS is a Roll Over Protective Structure. It is intended to provide protection to the operator in the event a machine turns over in the course of operation. It is not designed or made to provide protection for a machine that is driven off an embankment, retaining wall or similar structure or terrain feature. A ROPS does not replace the need to exercise care when operating on slopes. – Follow the manufacturer's recommendations 9 SAFETY WOODS MAINTENANCE SAFETY FUEL IN GENERAL – Gasoline and diesel fuels are flammable; gasoline vapors are explosive. Use extra care when handling. – Maintain machine according to manufacturer's schedule and instructions for maximum safety and best mowing results. – Park machine on level ground. – Never allow untrained personnel to service machine. – Adjust or repair only after the engine has been stopped and the blades have stopped rotating. – Inspect grass catcher components regularly. If worn, damaged or deteriorated, they may expose moving parts or allow objects to be thrown. – Replace parts if worn, damaged or faulty. For best results, always replace with parts recommended by the manufacturer. – Disconnect battey or remove spark plug wire(s) before making any repairs. Disconnect the negative terminal first and the positive last. Reconnect positive first and negative last. – Do not dismantle the machine without releasing or restraining forces which may cause parts to move suddenly. – Provide adequate support for lifted machine or parts if working beneath. – Do not put hands or feet near or under rotating parts. – Clean up oil or fuel spillage thoroughly. – Replace faulty mufflers. – To reduce fire hazards, keep the engine, muffler, battery compartment and fuel storage area free of grass, leaves, debris buildup or grease. BLADES WARNING – Mower blades are sharp and can cut. Use extra caution when handling. Remove obstructions with care. Wrap the blade(s) or wear gloves. – Be aware that rotating one blade on multiblade mowers can cause other blades to rotate. – Only replace blades. Never straighten or weld them. – Keep other persons away from blades. 10 WARNING – Store only in containers specifically designed for fuel. – When refueling or checking fuel level: - Stop the engine and allow to cool; - Do not smoke; - Refuel outdoors only; - Use a funnel; - Do not overfill; - If fuel is spilled, do not attempt to start the engine until the spill is cleaned up and vapors have cleared. Sparks from static electricity can start fires or couse explosions. Flowing fuel can generate static electricity. To prevent static electricity sparks: – Do not fill containers in a vehicle or on a truck or trailer bed with a plastic liner. Fill containers on the ground away from the vehicle. – When practical, remove gas powered equipment from the truck or trailer and refuel it on the ground. If equipment must be refueled on the truck or trailer, refuel from a portable container rather than a dispenser nozzle. – Keep the dispenser nozzle in contact with the rim of the fuel tank or container opening until fueling is complete. Do not use a nozzle lock-open device – Replace caps on fuel cans and tanks securely. HYDRAULIC SYSTEM The machine's hydraulic system operates under high pressure. WARNING – When checking for leaks, do not use your hands to attempt to find a leak. Instead, use cardboard or paper. – Escaping hydraulic fluid can be under sufficient pressure to penetrate skin and cause serious injury. – If hydraulic fluid is injected into the skin, it must be promptly removed by a doctor familiar with this form of injury or gangrene may result. – Check that all hydraulic fluid connections are tight and all hydraulic hoses and lines are in good condition before applying pressure to the system. SAFETY WOODS BATTERY Battery acid is caustic and fumes are explosive and can cause serious injury or death.

Reverse speed increases as the levers are moved back farther. Maximum reverse speed is reached when the levers hit the rear of the forward-reverse slot. When moving in reverse, pushing the levers forward slows the machine, and the machine stops when the neutral position is reached. NOTE: Reverse is spring loaded to return to neutral. This spring resistance may be felt when moving the traction levers into reverse. When the levers are released in reverse, spring tension will slowly return them to the neutral position. Lift and traction levers (operator's right side) HEIGHT OF CUT PIN (C) - Sets height of cut and allows easy return from transport to desired height of cut. Raise the deck to transport with the lift lever F. Position pin C in the hole corresponding to th desired height of cut. Lower the lift lever until it rests on pin C. TRACTION LEVERS (L) - Each of the two traction levers controls the drive wheel located on the same side. They control the forward and reverse movement of the machine, provide steering and also provide dynamic braking. The operator must be in the seat and the parking brake must be OFF or the traction drive cannot be engaged. To engage traction drive, move the traction levers toward the center of the machine until they are out of neutral lock slot S. Forward movement - To move the machine straight ahead, push both traction levers forward equally from their neutral position. Forward speed increases as the levers are moved farther forward from the neutral position. Maximum forward speed is reached when the levers hit the front of the forward-reverse slot. When traveling forward, pulling the traction levers rearward slows the machine, and the machine stops when the neutral position is reached. 18 STEERING - To steer, move one lever forward and one back. Turns during forward movement: – Right turn - move the right traction lever back toward neutral to slow the right drive wheel. – Left turn - move the left traction lever back toward neutral to slow the left drive wheel. Turns during reverse movement: – Reverse right turn - move the right traction lever forward toward neutral to slow the right drive wheel. – Reverse left turn - move the left traction lever forward toward neutral to slow the left drive wheel. Slow, sweeping turns are made with both traction levers on the same side of neutral and slightly apart. True zero radius turns about the center of the machine are made by having one lever in reverse while the other is in forward. By varying the relative positions of the two levers, the rate of turn is varied to suit the mowing situation. Slow down before making sharp turns. The machine is capable of turning very rapidly when the levers are moved further apart from each other. Loss of control and/or turf damage may result. WOODS CONTROLS FUEL VALVES (U) - A fuel tank selector valve is provided on oil cooler mounting bracket.The fuel tank selector valve has three positions: Off: The tank selector is off when the lever points toward the machine. The selector should be off whenever the machine is transported or stands unused for any length of time. Shutting off the fuel supply avoids the possibility of flooding should any dirt get under the carburetor float needle. Leaving the tank selector in either tank position can allow severe flooding, which may ruin the engine by diluting the oil. Right Tank: Fuel flows from the right tank when the selector is turned 1/4 turn toward the left, when facing the valve. Left Tank: Fuel flows from the left tank when the selector is turned 1/4 turn toward the right, when facing the vlave. Located on oil cooler bracket behind seat. DFI - FULE VALVES (V)- A fuel tank selector valve is provided on the left side behind operator's seat. Off: The tank selector is off when the lever points to the front of the machine. The selector should be off whenever the machine is transported or stands unused for any length of time. Shutting off the fuel supply avoids the possibility of flooding should any dirt get under the carburetor float needle. Leaving the tank selector in either tank position can allow severe flooding, which may ruin the engine by diluting the oil. Right Tank: Fuel flows from the right tank when the selector is turned 1/4 turn toward the rear of the machine. Left Tank: Fuel flows from the left tank when the selector is turned 1/4 turn toward the left hand side of the machine. 12 VOLT POWER OUTLET (X) - A 12 volt power outlet is provided to operate 12 volt personal accessories. 19 CONTROLS WOODS FOOT LIFT PEDAL The foot lift pedal A, allows the operator to raise the mower deck to the highest position without removing his/her hands from the traction controls. To use the foot lift pedal A, press on it to raise the deck. The picture shows the foot lift pedal mounted on the RH side of the machine. If you prefer to have the foot mounted lift pedal on the left hand side, simply loosen the existing hardware and mount the foot lift pedal in a similar manner to the left hand side. Tighten the hardware to secure the foot lift pedal. PARKING BRAKE (R) - Pull the parking brake lever up and back to put the parking brake ON. Push it forward and down to put the parking brake OFF. The parking brake must be ON to start the engine. It must also be ON and the traction levers must be in neuetral to keep the engine running if the operator leaves the seat. The parking brake must be OFF to keep the engine running when a traction lever is moved out of neutral lock. Parking brake in ON position (operator's left side) PUSHING THE MACHINE Hydrostat bypass valves (“dump valves”) on each hydrostatic pump allow the machine to be pushed or towed without the engine running. Parking Brake must be off. Raise the seat to gain access to these two valves V. Turn both valves counterclockwise 1 turn to release the hydrostatic system. Restore the hydrostatic system by turning the valves clockwise only until they re-seat. DO NOT overtighten. Use caution if it is necessary to tow the machine. With the bypass valves open, the dynamic braking and steering provided by the hydrostats is disabled. Towing should be done only if a disabled machine cannot be repaired where it broke down. 20 Compartment beneath the seat, viewed from above WOODS PRE-OPERATION CHECK LIST PRE-OPERATION CHECK LIST (OWNER’S RESPONSIBILITY) ___ Review and follow all safety rules and safety decal instructions. ___ Check that all safety decals are installed and in good condition.

Do not use hi-test fuel. – Use a funnel to avoid spillage. OPERATOR PRESENCE INTERLOCK SYSTEM To start the engine: – The PTO switch must be OFF. – Both traction levers must be in the neutral lock position. WARNING – The parking brake must be ON. To operate the machine: 1. The operator must be in the seat or engaging the PTO will kill the engine. TO CHECK OR ADD FUEL: – Do it outdoors – Do not smoke – Stop engine; allow to cool – Fill to one inch below bottom of filler neck – Do not overfill – Clean up spilled fuel BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE – Be familiar with all controls, how each functions and what each operates. – Check the engine oil level and add if necessary. Open the fuel valves under each fuel tank. Select which tank to draw fuel from with the fuel selector valve. – 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. 22 2. The parking brake must be OFF and the operator must be in the seat, or moving a traction lever from the neutral lock position will kill the engine. STARTING THE ENGINE 1. Turn the key to operate the electric starter to start the engine. Release the key when the engine starts. 2. If the engine does not start immediately, do not crank for more than 10 seconds at a time. Allow 60 seconds for the starter motor to cool down between starting attempts to prevent the starter motor from burning out. 3. If the choke is ON when the engine starts, gradually back it off until the engine runs with no choke at all. OPERATION WOODS OPERATING NOTES DRIVING – Practice at slow engine and travel speeds with the PTO off until fully familiar with the controls. 1. With the PTO disengaged, move the parking brake to OFF. – For normal cutting the throttle should be set at the full open position. By using the traction levers to speed up or slow down the machine during use,maximum control and cutting efficiency can be maintained. 3. Push both traction levers forward evenly to drive forward in a straight line. Pull both traction levers back evenly to drive backward in a straight line. – Using the machine at less than full throttle in heavy conditions will cause the engine to labor and result in excessive wear tothe engine and hydraulic system. 2. Move both traction levers out of neutral lock. 4. Steering - Move one lever forward and one back. Turns during forward movement: – Right turn - move the right traction lever back toward neutral to slow the right drive wheel. – Left turn - move the left traction lever back toward neutral to slow the left drive wheel. Turns during reverse movement: – Reverse right turn - move the right traction lever forward toward neutral to slow the right drive wheel. – Reverse left turn - move the left traction lever forward toward neutral to slow the left drive wheel. Use caution when making turns. Slow down before making sharp turns to help maintain control and to prevent torn turf from skidding or spinning tires. To help prevent turf damage, keep both drive tires moving whenever a turn is made. TIP: The best way to make a sharp "zero" turn is to come to a stop, get the machine moving in reverse with both drive wheels and then powering the machine around with the outside wheel. This technique keeps the drive tires turning and results in less turf damage. 23 OPERATION WOODS CUTTING 1. Place the discharge chute in the down position or correctly fit a grass collector or mulcher plate. 2. Sit in the seat. DANGER 3. Start the engine. 4. Turn the blades on by pulling up on the PTO switch. Do not start the blades at full throttle. Instead, use the slowest throttle setting that will allow the engine to pick up the blade load to reduce the wear on the belts and electric clutch. 5. After the blades are rotating, set the throttle to maximum. Use the traction levers to obtain the required cutting speed, to steer around obstacles and to turn at the end of a cut. ROTATING BLADES – KEEP HANDS AND FEET AWAY. – STOP ENGINE AND LET BLADES STOP BEFORE REMOVING GRASS COLLECTOR OR UNCLOGGING. WARNING CUTTING TIPS THROWN OBJECTS – When mowing large areas, start by turning to the right so that clippings will be discharged away from shrubs, fences, driveways, etc. After two or three rounds, mow in the opposite direction, left hand turns, until finished. – KEEP AREA CLEAR OF PEOPLE AND PETS. – REMOVE OBJECTS BLADE MAY STRIKE AND THROW. – STOP BLADES TO CROSS GRAVEL AREAS – DO NOT OPERATE WITHOUT CHUTE, MULCHER OR ENTIRE GRASS COLLECTOR IN PLACE. – If grass is extremely tall, it should be mowed twice, the first cut relatively high, the second cut to the desired height. – Use the left side of the mower for trimming. – Choose cutting directions so that clippings are thrown onto areas that already have been cut. This method results in the most even distribution of clippings and more uniform, better appearing cuts. – Use a different mowing pattern each time a property is cut where possible. This helps prevent rutting and leads to a more uniform cut by keeping the grass from always laying the same way. 24 MAINTENANCE CHART WOODS MAINTENANCE OPERATION Maintenance is an ongoing job. These intervals are maximum times betw een maintenance operations. Perform more often under severe conditions.

Sit in the seat and check, one by one, if the engine will crank with the parking brake off, the blades on, and either traction lever out of neutral lock. Operator Presence Interlock System - Run Operation The operator must be in the seat for the engine to run with the parking brake off, the traction levers moved out of the neutral lock position, or the blades on. To check: 1. Start the engine and run at 1/2 throttle with the operator on the machine but raised off the seat. 2. One by one: move the parking brake to the OFF position, traction levers out of the neutral lock position (check each independently), and turn the blades on. Each check should kill the engine after 1/2 second. (A 1/2 second delay is built into the system to prevent engine cutout when traversing rough terrain.) Repair machine before using if the Operator Presence Interlock System does not operate correctly in start or run. Contact your authorized Schiller Grounds Care, Inc. dealer. Hardware Tighten any nuts and bolts found loose. Replace any broken or missing cotter pins. Repair any other problems before operating. Tire pressure Tires should be kept inflated at 14 lbs/in2 (1.0 kg/cm2). Improper tire inflation can cause rapid tire wear and poor traction. Uneven inflation can cause uneven cutting. BATTERY Battery acid is caustic and fumes are explosive and can cause serious injury or death. 4. Check the electrolyte level every 100 hours of operation. Use insulated tools, wear protective glasses or goggles and protective clothing when working with batteries. Read and obey the battery manufacturer’s instructions. 5. Clean the cable ends and battery posts with steel wool. Use a solution of baking soda and water to clean the battery. Do not allow the solution to enter into the battery cells. Be certain the ignition switch is OFF and the key has been removed before servicing the battery. 1. Verify battery polarity before connecting or disconnecting the battery cables. 6. Tighten cables securely to battery terminals and apply a light coat of silicone dielectric grease to terminals and cable ends to prevent corrosion. Keep terminal covers in place. 2. When installing the battery, always assemble the RED, positive ( + ) battery cable first and the ground, BLACK, negative ( - ) cable last. 3. When removing the battery, always remove the ground, negative ( - ) cable first and the red, positive ( + ) cable last. 27 MAINTENANCE WOODS 6 1 2 2 4 2 5 3 2 4 2 6 LUBRICATION Every 50 hours of operation, lubricate the following points (1-4) with grease: 1. Deck lift rockshaft (1 point) 2. Deck lift pivots (6 points) 3. Brake lever pivot (1 point) 4. Push arms (2 points located at rear of cutterdeck under each fuel tank) 5. Isolation mounts (4 points located under seatt at front of machine) 6. Caster wheel pivots (2 points) (Lubricate every 500 hours or once a year) NOTE ON BLADE SPINDLES - The blade spindles on these machines use a superior sealed bearing that does not require relubrication. 28 WOODS MAINTENANCE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM Fluid level in the hydraulic system should be checked after the first 5 hours of operation, and every 100 hours thereafter, or when a leak has occurred. If the fluid is low, check all components for leaks. To check, remove reservoir cap M. The fluid level should be at the bottom of the filler tube. If low, top up (do not overfill). Use one of the oils listed below: – SAE 15W40 motor oil – SAE 20W50 motor oil – 15W50 synthetic motor oil AFTER FIRST FIVE (5) HOURS 1. Remove plug N to drain hydraulic reservoir. Dispose of used oil in accordance with local requirements. 2. Clean and replace the plug. 3. Change hydraulic oil filter G. 4. Fill the reservoir with fresh oil to the bottom of the reservoir filler tube, using an oil from the list above. Do not overfill. PERIODIC OIL CHANGES Change the hydraulic fluid and hydraulic filter after each 500 hours of operation using the same procedure given above. NOTES: Before servicing the hydraulic system, stop the engine, disconnect spark plug wires and disengage the PTO. – After any hydraulic line is opened, plug or cap it promptly to reduce the risk of contamination. – Do not use sealant tape on hydraulic pipe fittings. Use a liquid sealant that will dissolve into the system. – Make sure all hydraulic connections are tight and hydraulic hoses and lines are in good condition before applying pressure to system. View from below machine The machine's hydraulic system operates under high pressure. When checking for leaks, do not use your hands to attempt to find a leak. Instead, use cardboard or paper. Escaping hydraulic fluid can be under sufficient pressure to penetrate skin and cause serious injury. If hydraulic fluid is injected into the skin, it must be promptly removed by a doctor familiar with this form of injury or gangrene may result. 29 MAINTENANCE WOODS ENGINE OIL Do not perform engine maintenance without the engine off, spark plug wires disconnected and PTO disengaged. AFTER FIRST FIVE (5) HOURS While the engine is warm: 1. Release the oil drain hose assembly from the engine clip J. Lay hose assembly over the frame edge. 2. Remove the rubber cap D from the tip of the hose assembly and turn the drain valve to allow oil to drain from the engine. Dispose of used oil in accordance with local requirements. 3. Clean drain valve and tighten the plastic portion of the drain valve back into the metal portion of the valve. Replace rubber cap over the tip of the valve. Replace hose assembly back into engine clip. 4. Change oil filter. 5. Fill the crankcase with fresh oil to the full mark. Do not overfill. See engine manual for oil specifications. DAILY 1. Check oil level with the dipstick. 2. If oil is needed, add fresh oil of proper viscosity and grade. See engine manual for oil specifications. Do not overfill. 3. Replace dipstick before starting engine. PERIODIC OIL CHANGES 1. See engine manual for oil and filter change intervals after the break-in period. 2. Follow instructions for first oil change, above. SPARK PLUGS Remove each plug and check condition. – Good operating conditions are indicated if the plug has a light coating of grey or tan deposit. – A white blistered coating indicates overheating. A black coating indicates an “over rich” fuel mixture. Both may be caused by a clogged air cleaner or improper carburetor adjustment. – Do not sandblast, wire brush or otherwise attempt to repair a plug in poor condition. Best results are obtained with a new plug. – Set plug gap as specified in engine manual.. FUEL FILTER An inline fuel filter is located in the fuel supply line. Inspect at every oil change to make sure it is clean and unobstructed. Replace if dirty. 30 WOODS MAINTENANCE ENGINE COOLING Continued operation with a clogged cooling system will cause severe overheating and can result in engine damage. - Daily: Clean air intake screen S on air cooled engines and T on liquid cooled engines. - Every 100 hours: Clean cooling fins beneath blower housing H with reference to information in the engine manufacturer's manual. HEAVY DUTY CYCLONIC AIR CLEANER Clean and replace the air cleaner element as specified in the service chart. Uneven running, lack of power or black exhaust fumes may indicate a dirty air cleaner. To replace air cleaner elements: 1. Unclamp end cover X and remove existing cleaner elements. 2. Insert new elements Y and Z and replace cover. Ensure the breathing port A is pointing down and towards the front of the tractor. 31 MAINTENANCE CLEANING MACHINE Clean the machine after use. The machine will run cooler and last longer if kept free of clippings and other debris. A clean machine also reduces the risk of fire due to accumulation of combustible debris and chaff Brush or blow clippings and debris off the cutterdeck and engine deck. WASHING MACHINE CAUTION: Improperly washing a machine can cause water to enter bearings and other components. This can greatly reduce component life. – Do not use a pressure washer. Do not direct water at bearings or seals. High pressure water can blow past seals ad enter seal bearings. – Allow the machine to cool down before washing. Water on a warm machine can be sucked into sealed bearings as they cool. – Avoid getting electrical connections wet. Water can cause electrical faults and corrosion of electrical components. 32 WOODS MAINTENANCE WOODS BLADE REMOVAL BLADE BALANCE Follow these instructions to prevent injury during blade removal: 1. Loosen with a box wrench or a socket and long breaker bar. To gain additional leverage, slip a long pipe or thick-walled tube over breaker bar or wrench. 2. Insert wood block A as shown, with grain perpendicular to blade, to prevent blade from turning when loosening. 3. Wear thickly padded gloves. Keep hands clear of blade path. Blades may rotate when bolt releases. Blade balance must be maintained at 5/8 oz-in (19.4 g-cm) or less. Failure to keep blades balanced causes excess vibration, wear, and shortened life of most components of the machine. To balance a blade: 1. Sharpen blade first. 2. Balance the blade at the center. 3. Attach a 1/8 oz (3.9 g) weight at a distance 5" (127 mm) from center on the light end. This should make the light end the heavy end: – If it does, the blade is balanced. – If does not, file or grind the heavy end until the addition of the weight makes the light end the heavy end. BLADE INSTALLATION SHARPENING 1. Wear thickly padded gloves to prevent cuts from the sharp blade. 2. Insert the blade bolt, in order, through the conical washer (cup side toward the blade, as shown), the blade, and the blade spacer. 3. Install assembly on the blade spindle. 4. Torque the blade bolt to 70 ft-lbs. Blades may be sharpened by filing or grinding. – Inspect blades before sharpening. – Replace bent or cracked blades. – Replace blades when the lift portion has worn thin. – Maintain cut angle at 30o. – Do not overheat blades when sharpening. – Always use Schiller Grounds Care, Inc. blades. Use of another manufacturer’s blades may be dangerous.

WOODS WOODS ADJUSTMENTS HEIGHT OF CUT The height of cut is set by moving height of cut pin C to the hole designated for the height of cut desired. To change the height of cut: 1. Lift the deck to the highest position. 2. Move pin C to the selected hole. 3. Lower the deck until the lift lever is stopped by the pin. NOTES: – Height of cut may vary due to the amount of tread on the tires, tire diameter or inflation pressure. Rear wheels 12 p.s.i. – For best results, adjust the rear deck rollers for the height of cut to be used (see below). REAR DECK ROLLERS The rear outside deck rollers are adjustable up and down to provide improved deck flotation and scalping protection at various heights of cut. They are not intended to ride continuously on the ground. Adjust no closer than 3/8" (10mm) to the ground. Height of cut ranges for roller adjustment FRONT DECK LIP Adjustable front deck lips have been provided on 52 in. and 61 in. cutterdecks for various cutting conditions. To revise per conditions: 1. Loosen the front bolts S. 2. Adjust height of H. 3. Retighten S once you have desired height. 35 ADJUSTMENTS WOODS CONTROL LEVERS There are two mounting positions for the control levers, upper and lower. The lower position works well for most people. Taller operators may need the upper position. To adjust the height of the control levers: – Remove bolts A and nuts B. – Align holes in control lever D with appropriate holes in traction lever bracket C. – Install bolts A and nuts B. The upper mounting hole for the control levers is slotted to allow fore-aft adjustment and to allow alignment of the levers.
