running or when the engine is hot.

If gasoline is spilled, do not attempt to start the engine but move the machine away from the area of spillage

and avoid creating any source of ignition until gasoline vapors have dissipated.

Replace all fuel tanks and container caps securely.

Replace faulty or damaged muffler.

Before using, always visually inspect to see that the blades, blade bolts and cutter assembly are not worn or damaged. Replace worn or damaged blades and bolts in sets to preserve balance. On multi-bladed machines, take care as rotating one blade can cause other blades to rotate.

Maintenance & Storage:

Keep all nuts, bolts and screws tight to be sure the equipment is in safe working condition.

Never store equipment with gasoline in the tank inside a building(s) where fumes can reach an open flame or spark.

Allow the engine to cool before storing in any enclosure.

To reduce the fire hazard, keep the engine, muffler, battery compartment and gasoline in storage area free of grass, leaves or excessive grease.

Check the grass chute frequently for wear or deterioration. Replace worn or damaged parts for safety.

If the fuel tank has to be drained, this should be done outdoors in an approved gasoline container and/or properly disposed of.

When machine is to be parked, stored or left unattended, lower the deck unless a positive mechanical lock is used.

Training:

All drivers should seek and obtain professional and practical instruction. Such instruction should emphasize: The need for care and concentration when working with ride-on machines.

Control of a ride-on machine sliding on a slope will not be regained by the application of the brake. The main reasons for loss of control are:

Insufficient wheel grip.Being driven too fast.Inadequate braking.The type of machine is unsuitable for its task.Lack of awareness of the effect of ground conditions, especially slopes.Incorrect hitching and load distribution. Operation:

Do not operate the engine in a confined space where dangerous carbon monoxide fumes can collect.

When using any attachments, never direct discharge of material toward bystanders nor allow anyone near the machine while in operation.

Never operate the machine with defective guards or without safety protective devices in place.

Do not change the engine governor settings or over-speed the engine. Operating the engine at excessive speed can increase the hazard of personal injury.

Disengage drive to attachments, stop the engine and disconnect the spark plug wire(s) or remove the ignition key:

Before clearing blockages or unclogging chute.Before checking, clearing or working on the machine.After striking a foreign object, inspect the machine for damage and make repairs before restarting and

WARNING

When it is necessary to raise the mower for any repair or service, use jackstands to provide adequate support. DO NOT rely on hydraulic or mechanical jacks.

WARNING

The battery contains sulfuric acid and electrolytes which are poisonous and corrosive.

CHARGING TIPS To avoid a battery explosion, never attempt to charge a frozen battery.

Warning: Gel and AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) batteries require a voltage-limited

charger. Charging a Gel or AGM battery on a typical shop charger, even one time, may greatly shorten its life.

Important: Never overcharge batteries. Excessive charging will shorten battery life.

Prior to charging, read the manufacturer’s instructions for proper charger hook-up and use.

Turn off charger prior to hookup to avoid dangerous sparks. PROTECT YOUR EYES!

Warning: If the electrolyte is accessible, verify that plates are covered before beginning

to charge. At the end of charge, add distilled water as needed to bring levels to the proper height. If water is added, charge for an additional 30 minutes to mix. If electrolyte levels are low but battery is not accessible, remove battery from service.

The maximum charge rate in amperes should be no more than 1/3 of the battery’s reserve capacity minute rating. If the terminal voltage exceeds 16.0 volts while charging, reduce the charge rate.

Continue charging and reduce the rate as needed until a 2 hour period results in no increase in voltage or decrease in current.

If violent gassing or spewing of electrolyte occurs or the battery case feels hot to the touch, temporarily reduce or halt charging.

Starting:

Starting Instructions are also included on the right side control panel decal.

Before starting the vehicle, be sure all people are clear of the area. Operator must be sitting in the seat. Control handles must be in the neutral (vertical) position. PTO must be in the disengage position (pushed down). Brake must be engaged. Depress interlock button on left control panel and turn ignition key simultaneously until engine runs. Once started, set engine RPM to maximum (Fast) and then engage the blades.

OPERATION

Grass Height & Cutting Suggestions:

Do not attempt to cut wet grass.

The average lawn should be cut to 2 ½” during the cool season and to over 3” during the hot months. For healthier and better looking lawns, mow often and after moderate growth.

As a rule, never cut more than 1/3 of the total grass blade length. Correct mowing height can reduce weeds and lawn disease.

For best performance, grass over 6 inches in height should be mowed twice. The first cut should be set relatively high and the second set to the desired height.

For best looking results and a healthier lawn, mow in different directions each time you mow.

• Example: If you mow going north and south, the next time you should mow going east and west.

Deck Leveling

Deck leveling is not required as the deck is set level from the factory.

• The only instance where the deck would not be level is if a component(s) is damaged or broken, which in this instance would need to be replaced.

Brake / Transmission Bypass Operation

Brake: Be sure the vehicle is not moving before engaging the brake. Only engage the brake on level ground.

DO NOT engage the brake on an inclined surface. To engage, pull up on the brake handle (outside lever) until the locking plate is seated in the locked position. Note both handles will come up as they are linked together for the brake application.

To disengage, push down on both lock plates until they are released from the locked position.

Once unlocked, push both arms down until they are out of travel. Bypass: Engaging the Transmission bypass will cause the rear wheels to turn freely. Only engage the bypass on level ground. DO NOT engage the bypass on an inclined surface. To engage the Transmission bypass, pull up on the bypass handle (inside lever) only. Note only this handle should come up. To disengage, push down on the lock plate until it is released from the locked position. Once unlocked, push the arm down until it is out of travel.

OPERATION

Controls

Be familiar with all controls, their functions and how to operate them before starting the machine.

Motion control levers on each side of the console control the direction of movement. SEE FIGURE BELOW

Control Handles

Neutral Position Slow Forward Fast Forward 90° Right Turn 90° Left Turn Slow Reverse 360° Right Turn 360° Left Turn

NOTE:

If you have never used a Zero Turn mower before, refer to the Operation Controls section of this manual before attempting to operate one for the first time.

Note: The pressure required to operate the mower is very slight.

Fuel Shut-Off Valves

The Swisher ZTR2766CP is equipped with two shut-off valves, one for each tank. These are located behind the seat and in front of the engine.

Only one tank should be used while operating the machine. When that tank runs empty or is close to running empty, turn off that fuel shut-off valve and turn on the opposite shut-off valve. Operating the machine with both valves open could cause the system to pull air from an empty tank.

“ON” Position (Parallel with fuel line) “OFF” Position (Perpendicular with fuel line)

SERVICE & ADJUSTMENTS

Adjusting The Cutting Height

Push forward on the Deck Lift Pedal to raise the deck and place the locator pin in one the of the eight hole positions to set the desired cutting height. Once the desired height is selected, slowly release the pedal until the locator pin is engage by the deck lift.

Position 1 is the highest setting and Position 8 is the lowest position.

The cutting range is from approximately 1.5” to approximately 5”.

Parking Brakes / Transmission Bypass Adjustments

The Swisher ZTR2766CP is equipped with a manual parking brake linked with transmission bypasses.

This system must be engaged by the operator before starting the vehicle and also before exiting the vehicle.

Only when the control handles are in the neutral position and the machine is not moving should the brakes be engaged. DO NOT attempt to engage the brake while the vehicle is moving or on an inclined surface.

Adjustments for the system are located on the right side between the fuel tank and the seat.

Checking if adjustments are needed: •Raise wheels off the ground and place jack stands underneath the vehicle.

•Engage the brakes. To see if the brakes are fully engaged, spin the rear wheel by hand.

•If the rear wheels spin more than 10° while the brake is set to engaged then adjustments are needed.

Making Adjustments: •Disengage the brake before performing adjustments. •Start by loosening the front adjustment nut.

•Tighten the rear adjustment nut while making sure the cable bulkhead does not spin. Pliers may be needed to keep the bulkhead from spinning.

Make small adjustments approximately an ⅛ ” to a ¼”.

•Tighten the front adjustment nut once all adjustments are made.

•Re-engage the brake to check if the adjustments were enough to fully engage the brakes. If not repeat the previous steps until the wheels can no longer spin more than 10° while brakes are set to engaged. Tracking Adjustments: See pg 25 for tracking adjustment bolt locations.

PTO Clutch Adjustment

Please visit www.ogura-clutch.com/files/pdfIMP/PTOinstallation.pdf to view maintenance, adjustment and installation instructions.

Hydro Expansion Tank Oil Levels

The Swisher ZTR2766CP is equipped with two hydrostatic transmission expansion tanks to allow for oil expansion during regular use. These are located directly behind the seat and in front of the engine. Oil levels in both expansion tanks (when oil is cold or at ambient temperature) should always be kept at the “full cold” line. Note: Oil levels could rise above this line once the oil has been used and has increased in temperature. Wait until oil has cooled back to the ambient temperature before checking the oil levels. See image below for reference. If oil level in either tank is below the “full cold” line please remove the cap and add *oil to the tank until it reaches the “full cold” line.

*Only use SAE 20w-50 engine oil; preferably with the following specifications: •Viscosity Rating: 162 @ 40°C / 18.1 @100°C •13cSt & 9cSt min @ 110°C •API Classification: SL Using another type of oil may void the warranty. Cap Expansion Tank Above Full Cold Line Below

NOTES

NOTES

SWISHER HISTORY Back before electricity came to rural Missouri Max Swisher was producing lawn mowers from his mother’s chicken house. Max never liked to mow grass. He installed a gearbox on his family’s lawn mower creating a self-propelled unit. By tying one end of a rope to the mower and the other end to a tree in the center of the yard the mower circled the tree, shortening the rope and guiding the mower in concentric circles. Max enjoyed relaxing under a shade tree while his invention did all the work.

Max had designed his first self-propelled rotary lawn mower to do his dirty work for him. Neighbors noticed his new invention and began asking him to make more. Today, over 65 years later, Swisher is still producing innovative lawn and garden and ATV/UTV equipment designed to give us all more “relaxing in the shade” time. Swisher products have been featured nationally on television programs such as Regis and Kathie Lee and seen in publications like ATV Magazine, Country Journal, Popular Mechanics Magazine and others. In January 2000 Popular Mechanics Magazine named Max’s zero turning radius riding mower one of the 20 th century’s top household inventions. Swisher offers value and function in its products to meet your grounds maintenance needs.

CELEBRATING OVER 70 YEARS OF INNOVATION SINCE 1945
