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

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.

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.

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.

OPERATION
WOODS
FUELING
– Fill fuel tanks with good quality, clean, unleaded
gasoline. 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

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.

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.

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.
