Safety Instructions
6.
7.
8.
9.
Do not wear loose fitting clothing that could get
caught in moving parts. Do not operate this
machine while wearing shorts; always wear
adequate protective clothing, including long
pants. Wearing safety glasses, safety shoes,
and a helmet is advisable and required by some
local ordinances and insurance regulations.
Prolonged exposure to loud noise can cause
impairment or loss of hearing. Operator hearing protection is recommended. Wear a
suitable hearing protective device, such as earmuffs or earplugs.
Keep all protective shields and safety devices in place. If a protective shield, safety
device, or decal is damaged, unusable, or missing, repair or replace it before operating the
machine.
Be sure interlock switches are functioning
correctly, so the engine cannot be started unless the Forward Speed Control lever is in the
NEUTRAL-PARK position, and the PTO clutch
is in the DISENGAGED position. Also, the
engine should stop if the operator lifts off the
seat with the PTO clutch in the ENGAGED
position.
12. The electrical system battery contains sulfuric
acid. Avoid any contact with skin, eyes, and
clothing. Keep the battery and acid out of reach
of children.
OPERATING
1.
Operate the mower only in daylight or in good
artificial light with good visibility of the area being
mowed.
2.
Sit on the seat when starting the engine and
operating the machine. Keep feet on the deck
footrests at all times when the tractor is moving
and/or mower blades are operating.
3.
For a beginning operator, learn to steer
(maneuver) the tractor with a slow engine
speed before attempting any mowing operation. Be aware that, with the front mounted
mower configuration, the back of the tractor
swings to the outside during turns.
4.
Remember, for an emergency stop, the forward
motion of the tractor can always be stopped by
pulling the Forward Speed Control (FSC) into
the NEUTRAL-PARK position.
5.
In case the transmission drive belt breaks during
operation, and if the machine is on a slope, the
machine will freewheel down the slope. To
maintain control, immediately (1) Release the
steering levers and simultaneously (2) Move the
FSC to the NEUTRAL-PARK position. When
the machine is stopped or moving slowly,
engage the parking brake.
10. Handle gasoline with care. Gasoline is highly
flammable and its vapors are explosive:
12
a.
Use an approved fuel container.
b.
Never add fuel to a running engine or hot
engine (allow hot engine to cool several
minutes).
c.
Keep matches, cigarettes, cigars, pipes,
open flames, or sparks away from the fuel
tank and fuel container.
NOTE: This is exactly the same procedure used to
normally stop and park the machine.
6.
Disengage the blade clutch and put the FSC in
the NEUTRAL-PARK position before starting
the engine (an ignition interlock switch normally
prevents starting of the machine if these controls
are in the OPERATING position).
d.
Always fill the fuel tank outdoors using care.
Fill to about one inch from the top of the tank.
Use a funnel or spout to prevent spilling.
e.
Replace the machine fuel cap and container
cap securely and clean up any spilled fuel
before starting the engine.
7.
Do not run the engine in a confined area
without adequate ventilation. Exhaust fumes
are hazardous and can be deadly.
11. Never attempt to make any adjustments
while the engine is running, except where specifically instructed to do so.
8.
Do not carry passengers - maximum seating
capacity is one (1) person.
Safety Instructions
9.
Watch for holes, rocks, and roots in the terrain
and for other hidden hazards. When mowing
tall grass, mow higher than desired to expose
any hidden obstacles. Then, clean the area and
mow to the desired height.
16. In case of a clogged or plugged mower deck:
10. Avoid sudden starts or stops. Before backing
the machine up, look to the rear to be sure no
one is behind the machine. Watch carefully for
traffic when crossing or working near roadways.
11. Disengage the blade drive when transporting
the machine across drives, sidewalks, etc. Never
raise the mower deck while blades are
rotating.
12. The maximum recommended side slope
operating angle is 20 degrees or 33% grade.
When operating the machine on a slope, reduce
speed and use caution to start, stop, and
maneuver. To prevent tipping or loss of control
of the machine, avoid sharp turns or sudden
changes in direction.
13. Never adjust cutting height with the engine
running. Before adjusting cutting height or
servicing, disengage the blade clutch (PTO),
stop the engine, and remove the ignition key.
Wait for all movement to stop before getting off
the seat.
NOTE: The clutch brake should normally stop
drive line rotation within five (5) seconds of disengaging the PTO clutch.
14. For side discharge mower decks, do not operate with the grass deflector chute removed.
Keep the deflector in the lowest possible
position.
a.
Disengage the blade clutch (PTO) and turn
the engine off before leaving the seat.
b.
LOOK to make sure blade drive shaft movement has stopped before trying to unclog
the system.
c.
Disconnect the spark plug wires.
d.
Never place hands under the deck use a
stick or similar tool to remove clogged material.
17. If the cutting blades strike a solid object or the
machine begins to vibrate abnormally,
immediately disengage the blade clutch
(PTO), stop the engine, and wait for all
moving parts to stop. To prevent accidental
starting, disconnect the spark plug wires.
Thoroughly inspect the mower and repair any
damage before restarting the engine and
operating the mower. Make sure cutter blades
are in good condition and blade nuts are torqued
to 60 ft-lb (81.3 N⋅ m).
18. Do not touch the engine or muffler while the
engine is running or immediately after stopping the engine. These areas may be hot
enough to cause serious burns.
19. When leaving the machine unattended, disengage the blade clutch (PTO), stop the
engine, and remove the key.
MAINTENANCE
1.
To prevent accidental starting of the engine
when servicing or adjusting the machine, remove the key from the ignition switch and disconnect the spark plug wires.
15. When using the tilt-up deck, observe the following recommendations:
a.
Do not move tractor with deck in tilt-up position.
2.
To reduce fire hazards, keep the engine free of
grass, leaves, excessive grease, and dirt.
b.
Never tilt body forward with deck in tilt-up
position.
3.
Keep all nuts, bolts, and screws tight to ensure
the machine is in a safe, working condition.
Check the blade mounting nuts frequently, making sure they are tight.
4.

may result in unsafe operating conditions.
13
Safety Instructions
5.
If the engine must be running to perform a maintenance adjustment, keep hands, feet, and
clothing away from moving parts. Do not wear
jewelry or loose clothing.
6.
Always use the proper engine service
manual when working on the engine.
Unauthorized maintenance operations or
modifications to the engine may result in
unsafe operating conditions.
7.
Altering the equipment or engine in any manner
which adversely affects its operation, performance, durability, or use will VOID the warranty
and may cause hazardous conditions.
8.
Never attempt to disconnect any safety devices
or defeat the purpose of these safety devices.
9.
Do not change the engine governor settings or
overspeed the engine. The governor has been
factory-set for maximum-safe engine operating
speed.
10. Use genuine factory replacement parts. Substitute parts may result in product malfunction
and possible injury to the operator and/or
others.
14
11. Use care when charging the battery or performing maintenance on the battery and
electrical system:
a.
Make sure the battery charger is unplugged
before connecting or disconnecting cables
to the battery.
b.
Charge the battery in a well-ventilated

Deck Leveling
1.
2.
Check the side-to-side level. Rotate each blade
sideways and measure the distance from blade
tip to ground on each side. If measurements
vary more than 1/8 in. (3 mm), add a washer
shim under the deck support pins on the low side
to level the deck.
3.
Check the front-to-rear level. Rotate the blades
to point forward. Measure the distance from
blade tip to ground on the front and rear. The
rear of the blade should be 1/8 to 1/4 in. (3 to 6
mm) higher than the front of the blade; shim the
rear (or front) deck support pins equally to
achieve at least 1/8 in. (3 mm) difference.
Position mower on a smooth, level surface. Set
the cutting height to the highest position - 4 in.
(102 mm) - for easy access under the deck to
measure blade height. Refer to ADJUSTING
CUTTING HEIGHT in Operating Instructions.
NOTE: A block of wood cut 4 in. (102 mm) high
is a convenient gauge to measure blade height
above ground during the leveling process.
WARNING
NOTE: The mower deck and support frame
are jig welded; within normal tolerances, very little, if any, shimming should be required to level
the deck. Tire pressure will influence the levelness of the deck. Check the tire pressure as a
possible cause of the deck not being level.
The machine must be shut off during this
procedure.

Engine Choke
Forward Speed Control (FSC)
The choke control lever (black knob) is located on
the left side of the seat. To start a cold engine, move
the choke control forward to the ON position. After
engine starts, move choke control toward the OFF
position, keeping enough choke to allow the engine
to run smoothly as it warms up. As soon as possible,
move the choke to the OFF position. A warm engine
requires little or no choke for starting.
Forward Speed Control (FSC) has two functions:
One is to set forward travel speed, and the other is
to establish the NEUTRAL-PARK position. When
the FSC lever is moved into the FORWARD position,
a friction lock holds any forward speed setting from
0 to 8 mph (0 to 12.9 km/h). The ground speed is proportional to the lever position; the further the lever is
advanced forward, the faster the tractor moves. It is
not necessary to hold the FSC in position since the
friction lock maintains the selected lever position.
Pulling back on the steering levers overrides the
FSC setting and slows or stops forward travel.
Releasing the steering levers allows the tractor to
resume forward travel at the speed set by the FSC
lever. To stop and park the machine, the FSC lever
is moved backward to the NEUTRAL-PARK
position.
IMPORTANT: Make sure the choke is in the OFF
position during normal engine operation; running
with the choke in the ON position CAN damage the
engine.
Engine Throttle
The throttle control lever (red knob) is located on the
left side of the seat and is used to control engine
speed. Moving the lever forward toward the FAST
position increases engine speed; moving it backward toward the IDLE position decreases engine
speed.
Throttle
Choke
Steering Levers
Each drive wheel is controlled by its own independent steering lever, for both steering function and
FORWARD/REVERSE motion. The FSC lever sets
the maximum forward speed, and also sets the forward position of the steering levers. The steering
levers operate only with a backward pulling movement of the lever, which causes the drive wheel for
that lever to first slow down, stop, and then reverse
with a full backward lever stroke. The levers are
released to the FORWARD position for “straightahead” ground travel.
NOTE: Pushing forward on the steering levers will
not cause any change in tractor motion - there will be
no steering lever reaction and there will be no
machine damage.
Choke and Throttle Location
Blade Clutch (PTO)
The blade clutch lever has two positions. Pulling the
lever UP engages the PTO that drives the mower
blades. Pushing the lever DOWN disengages the
PTO and engages the blade brake.

Operating Instructions
Parking Brake
Hourmeter
The parking brake functions by locking a detent arm
into the transaxle outer control gear teeth. Moving
the lever FORWARD engages the parking brake;
moving the lever BACKWARD releases the brake.
The hourmeter, which is located on the right front of
the body, displays operating time accumulated
while the ignition switch is in the ON position.
IMPORTANT: Stop the tractor completely before
engaging the parking brake. The parking brake uses
a positive mechanical lock similar to the PARK position on an automotive automatic transmission. If the
tractor is moving when the brake is engaged, it will
result in sudden stoppage and possible internal
damage to the transaxle.
The hourmeter provides maintenance reminders
after certain hours of operation. The hourmeter
screen will start flashing the reminder one hour prior
to the recommended interval and will continue until
one hour after the recommended interval (two
hours). The hourmeter does not have a manual
reset function.
Procedure

transaxles are released to permit freewheeling. By
releasing the rods and recessing them back toward
the chassis, the transaxles are engaged for normal
operation. The transaxle rods in the LOCKOUT
position are used to enable moving the machine
without the engine running (e.g., for service). Refer
to TRANSAXLE LOCKOUTS in this section for
operating instructions.
NOTE: The transaxle lockout rods ends should be
completely retracted against the body, otherwise
operation of the transaxle may be erratic.

Operating Instructions
STARTING THE ENGINE
IMPORTANT: DO NOT crank the engine continuously for more than 10 seconds at a time. If
the engine does not start, turn the key to the
OFF position and allow a 60 second cool-down
period between starting attempts. Failure to follow these guidelines can damage the starter
motor and shorten battery life.
CAUTION
Before operating the mower, read and understand all Safety Instructions and Operating Instructions.
3.
WARNING
NEVER run the engine in an enclosed or
poorly ventilated area. Engine exhaust
contains carbon monoxide, an odorless
and deadly gas.
1.
Before attempting to start the engine, make
sure the operator is in the seat, the Forward
Speed Control is in NEUTRAL-PARK position,
and the blade clutch and parking brake are
DISENGAGED.
NOTE: Release parking brake to prevent extra
load on the starter if the transmission neutral is
slightly out of adjustment.
CAUTION
A safety interlock switch system PREVENTS CRANKING the engine with either
the Forward Speed Control or the blade
clutch (PTO) out of neutral. If the engine
cranks otherwise, the safety system is not
working and should be repaired or adjusted before operating the mower. DO NOT
disconnect safety switches; they are for
the operator's protection.
2.
Move the choke lever to the ON position and
move the throttle 1/4 to 1/2 open (toward FAST).
Turn the ignition switch to the START position to
start the engine. Release the key to RUN position as soon as the engine starts.
NOTE: The choke may not be required if the
engine is warm.
28
After the engine starts, gradually move the
choke to the OFF position, keeping enough
choke on to allow the engine to run smoothly as
it warms up. As soon as possible, move the
choke to the OFF position.
IMPORTANT: Make sure the choke is in the
OFF position during normal engine operation;
running with the choke in the ON position CAN
damage the engine.
ADJUSTING GROUND SPEED AND STEERING
CAUTION
Learn to START, STOP, and MANEUVER
the mower in a large, open area.
If the operator has not operated a machine
with LEVER STEERING OR DUAL TRANSAXLES, steering and ground operation
should be learned and practiced until the
operator is completely comfortable handling the machine BEFORE ATTEMPTING
TO MOW.
DANGER
Keep feet on footrest at all times when the
machine is moving.
Operating Instructions
WARNING
Beginning Recommendations are:
♦ Learn operation of the mower in an open
area away from buildings, fences, and obstructions. Learn operation on flat ground
BEFORE operating on slopes.
In case either of the transmission drive
belts break during operation, and if the
machine is on a slope, the machine will
freewheel down the slope. To maintain
control, immediately (1) Release the
steering levers and simultaneously (2)
Move the FSC to the NEUTRAL-PARK
position. When the machine is stopped
or moving slowly, engage the parking
brake.
♦ Start maneuvering the mower with SLOW
engine speed and SLOW Forward Speed
Control setting until familiar with all operating characteristics.
♦ Remember it is not necessary to hold the
steering levers forward (a unique Walker
feature); always PULL on the levers for
steering or for reverse motion of the mower.
♦ Learn to operate the mower with your left
hand on the steering levers and right hand on
Forward Speed Control. The use of two
hands on the steering levers tends to cause
overcontrol.
♦ Learn to operate the steering levers with
smooth action. Jerky movements are hard
on the transmission and lawn. For sharp
turns, do not allow the inside wheel to stop
and twist on the grass. Pull the steering lever controlling the inside wheel into reverse
for a smooth “rolling” turn (one wheel rolling forward while the other rolls backward).
NOTE: This is exactly the same procedure
used to normally stop and park the machine.
NOTE: If the FSC lever will not stay in the
selected position, the friction lock needs to be
adjusted. Contact your Walker Dealer.
2.
Steer by pulling the lever on the side of desired
direction of turn, e.g., pull the LH lever to turn
left. To minimize the possibility of overcontrol,
use only one hand on both steering levers.
Pull Steering
Levers with
Left Hand
♦ Practice maneuvering the mower until
you can make it go exactly where you are
aiming.
♦ Remember, for an emergency stop, or in
case of loss of control, machine movement
can always be stopped quickly by pulling
the Forward Speed Control into the NEUTRAL-PARK position.
1.
Move the FSC out of NEUTRAL-PARK position
to the desired forward speed. DO NOT hold forward on steering levers. It is not necessary to
hold the FSC lever in position since a friction
lock maintains the selected lever position (and
forward travel speed).

Operating Instructions
3.
Reverse direction of the mower by pulling both
levers backward.
NOTE: Smooth action on the steering levers
will produce smooth mower operation. Remember to keep the engine and ground speed slow
until learning the control response.
4.
The FSC may be adjusted forward for faster
ground speed and backward for slower ground
speed. When mowing, ground speed should be
adjusted to match the load on the cutter blades,
i.e., as the engine pulls down in heavy cutting,
pull back on the FSC lever to reduce ground
speed. Adjusting ground speed helps maintain
a balance between engine power and blade
speed for high-quality cutting action.
5.
Stop ground travel by pulling both steering
levers backward to the NEUTRAL-PARK position (tractor not moving) and then moving the
FSC lever to the NEUTRAL-PARK position.
NOTE: If the tractor creeps forward or backward with the FSC lever in the NEUTRAL-PARK
position, the transmission control needs to be
adjusted. Contact your Walker Dealer.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT engage the blade clutch
when transporting the mower across drives, sidewalks, loose materials, etc. DO NOT engage the
blade clutch with the PTO shaft disconnected
(the mower deck removed from tractor).
Blade Clutch Engaged
ENGAGING THE MOWER
1.
Set the engine throttle at about 1/3 speed. Do
not attempt to engage the blade clutch at
high engine speeds. This will drastically shorten drive belt life. Use only moderate engine
speed when engaging the blade clutch.
2.
Pull the blade clutch lever SLOWLY up to engage the mower blades.
CAUTION
A safety interlock switch (seat switch) will
cause the engine to stop if the blade
clutch is engaged and the operator is not
in the seat. The function of this switch
should be checked by the operator raising off the seat and engaging the blade
clutch; the engine should stop. If the
switch is not working, it should be repaired or replaced before operating the
mower. DO NOT disconnect the safety
switches; they are for the operator's protection.
30
Blade Clutch Disengaged
Operating Instructions
CAUTION
If the cutting blades strike a stationary
object while mowing, stop the mower immediately, disconnect the spark plug
wires, lift the deck, and inspect the deck
and blades thoroughly for damage. Make
sure that the blade timing has not been disturbed (the blades should be at 90 degrees
to each other). Refer to REPLACING/REPAIRING the Blade Overload Shear Bolts
in Maintenance Instructions if blades are out
of time. Also, make sure the blade retaining nuts are torqued to 60 ft-lb (81.3 N⋅m).
STOPPING THE MACHINE
1.
Slow the engine to idle; put the throttle in the
IDLE position.
2.
Pull the steering levers to the NEUTRAL-PARK
position and then move the FSC lever backward
to the NEUTRAL-PARK position.
3.
Disengage the blade clutch.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT disengage the blade
clutch with high engine speed (above 1/2
throttle) since the brake action on the blade drive
will cause premature wear of the Engine/PTO
Belt and internal braking mechanism (or
system).
5.
Engage the parking brake.
IMPORTANT: The transaxles lock to prevent the
mower from rolling freely with the engine
stopped. However, if the mower is parked on a
slope, it is necessary to ENGAGE the parking
BRAKE to prevent the mower from creeping.
This is due to a small amount of slippage in the
transaxles, especially when transmission fluid
is warm.
ADJUSTING CUTTING HEIGHT
WARNING
The engine must be stopped before adjusting cutting height. Disengage the
blade clutch (PTO), stop the engine, and
remove the ignition key. Wait for all movement to stop before getting off the seat.
Cutting height is adjusted by positioning the four
retainer hitch pins in a series of seven vertical
holes on the deck support pins. Lift handles have
been provided on each end of the deck to assist in
raising the deck while positioning the hitch pins. Cutting heights range from 1 in. (25 mm) [top holes] to
4 in. (102 mm) [bottom holes] in 1/2 in. (13 mm)
increments.
Lift Handle
WARNING
A brake stops the cutter blades from freewheeling within five (5) seconds after disengaging the clutch. If the brake system
malfunctions and the blades do not stop
within five (5) seconds, the brake should
be repaired or replaced before operating
the mower. Contact your Walker Dealer.

TRANSAXLE LOCKOUTS
IMPORTANT: DO NOT TOW this mower with the
transmission lockout engaged. Towing can produce
excessive internal pressure and damage the
transaxle.
Hydro Lockout Rod
To move the mower with the engine NOT running
(dead battery, maintenance, etc.), the transaxles are
unlocked (released).
1.
Raise the body.
2.
Pull up the transaxle lockout rods on both the
RH and LH transaxles and secure into place by
shouldering both rods in the chassis notch area.
3.
The mower will “freewheel” with the rods in the
LOCKOUT position. The levers must be in the
highest position to completely unlock the
transmissions.
Hydro Lockout Rod
Hydro Lockout Rod - Normal Operating Position
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR MOWING
IMPORTANT: Operate the engine at full speed
when mowing, to allow the engine to produce full
horsepower and to increase efficiency of the engine
cooling system.
• Keep the mower deck and discharge chute clean.
• Mow with sharp blades. A dull blade tears the
grass (resulting in poor lawn appearance) and uses
extra power (slowing the mowing speed).
• It is preferable to cut grass when it is dry and not
too tall. Mow frequently and do not cut grass too
short. (For best appearance, cut off 1/3 or less of
existing grass height.)
Hydro Lockout Rod - Freewheel Position
4.
After moving the mower, release the rods, placing them in the normal OPERATING position.
The transmission rod ends should be completely retracted against the chassis, otherwise
operation of the transmission maybe erratic.
• When mowing, operate the engine at or near full
throttle for the best cutting action. Mowing with a
lower engine RPM causes the mowing blade to not
cut clean and tear the grass. The engine is
designed to be operated at full speed.
• When mowing in adverse conditions (tall and/or
wet grass), mow the grass twice. Raise the mower
to the highest setting - 4 in. (102 mm) - for the first
pass and then make a second pass cutting to the
desired height.
• Use a slow setting on the FSC for trimming
operations.
32
Operating Instructions
• Make sure the mower is leveled properly for a
smooth cut. Refer to Deck Leveling in Assembly
Instructions.
• Use an alternating stripe mowing pattern for
best appearance and vary the direction of the stripe
each time the grass is mowed to avoid wear patterns
in the grass.

• Avoid damage to the grass by slipping and skidding of the drive tires. Use smooth control movements of the steering levers since the transaxles are
“power boosted controls” and jerking the levers can
easily slip the tires. For sharp turns, do not allow the
inside wheel to stop and twist on grass; pull inside
steering lever into reverse for a smooth “rolling” turn
(one wheel rolling forward while the other rolls backward).
• When using a side discharge mower deck, the
side discharge shield must not be removed and
must be kept in the lowest possible position to
deflect grass clippings and thrown objects downward. Orient the side discharge away from sidewalks or streets to minimize cleanup of clippings.
When mowing close to obstacles, orient the side discharge away from obstacles to reduce the chance of
damage to property by thrown objects.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR TILT-UP DECK
OPERATION/TRANSPORT
To avoid potential deck and/or tractor damage while
using the tilt-up deck, the following recommendations are offered:
• Do not move the tractor with the deck in the tiltup position since both the roller wheels (on the back
of the deck) may be damaged by moving the tractor.
The tilt-up configuration should only be used when
the tractor is parked.
• The tractor body should never be tilted forward with the deck in the tilt-up position. This can
cause the deck to unhook from the tractor and fall
with considerable force, potentially causing deck or
tractor damage and/or bodily injury.
Side Discharge Shield in Lowest Position
• When operating on a slope, reduce speed and
use caution to start, stop, and maneuver. Avoid
sharp turns or sudden changes in direction. The
maximum recommended side slope operating
angle is 20 degrees or 33% grade.
• When transporting a tractor with the deck in the
tilt-up position (on a truck or trailer), the deck
should be secured to the vehicle with a strap or
rope (stop vertical movement). This will prevent the
deck from bouncing on the rear roller wheels (causing breakage). This will also prevent the deck from
unhooking from the tractor and falling, potentially
causing deck or tractor damage. Damage to other
items parked in front of the deck may also occur.

Maintenance Instructions
IMPORTANT TIPS FOR CARE OF THE
BRIGGS & STRATTON ENGINE
Fuel System
• Fuel must be clean - free from water, dirt, and organic material.
• Clean the fuel filter on a regular basis and when
contamination is suspected or found in the fuel.
Starting
• Start engine with the throttle advanced off idle
(1/4 to 1/2 throttle). This will aid starting, especially
in cold weather.
• Keep the battery fully charged.
• Match crankcase oil viscosity to the ambient temperature, allowing the engine to crank faster and
start easier.
• Allow engine to run at idle for a few seconds before stopping engine to avoid run-on or backfiring.
Cooling System
• Keep engine air intake screen and cylinder head
fins free of grass clippings, chaff, and dirt. Inspect
intake screen and cooling fins for cleanliness and
damage.
• Operate the engine at full speed when mowing.
This will allow the engine to produce full horsepower
and move more cooling air through the engine cooling fins.
BRIGGS & STRATTON TIPS
Air Cleaner
• Use only Briggs & Stratton air cleaner elements.
Aftermarket elements may not seal in the air cleaner
housing, allowing dirt to enter the engine. Also, aftermarket filters often skimp on the filtration media
and require more frequent cleaning and replacement.
• DO NOT overservice or frequently “disturb” the
air filter. A dirty air filter actually cleans better than
a new one. Changing and cleaning the filter too often can actually reduce filter efficiency and increase
the opportunity for traces of dust to enter the engine.
Wait until the element really needs servicing as indicated by the loss of engine power.
• When the air filter element is removed or replaced, make sure all dust is cleaned out of the air
cleaner body. Use a damp cloth and wipe the interior of the air cleaner body clean (a little dirt left here
will be sucked into the engine and reduce engine
life). When the filter is reinstalled, make sure the element is held tight and straight in the air cleaner
body for proper seating and sealing.
Oil
• Single viscosity or multi-viscosity oils may be
used with the viscosity matching ambient temperatures for the engine operating conditions. This will
aid starting in cold weather and assure proper lubrication in hot weather.
• Use only Briggs & Stratton oil filters. Aftermarket
filters may not seal properly and/or have the incorrect pressure relief valve for proper lubrication.

LUBRICATION
LUBRICATION
IMPORTANT: DO NOT operate engine without
sufficient oil supply in the crankcase. DO NOT
operate with oil level below the LOW mark or
above the FULL mark on the dipstick.
WARNING
DO NOT attempt to lubricate the machine
with the engine running. Disengage the
PTO clutch, shut off the machine, and remove the ignition key.
Proper lubrication is an important maintenance procedure. It reduces wear and makes the machine
quieter and easier to operate.
Engine Oil
Engine Break-In Oil
No special break-in oil is required. The engine is serviced with 10W-30, Service Class SG oil from the
factory. The oil should be changed after the initial
engine break-in period of 5-8 hours. Thereafter,
change oil after every 50 hours of operation.

IMPORTANT: The importance of checking and
maintaining the proper crankcase oil level cannot be
overemphasized. Check the oil level BEFORE
EACH USE.
1.
Park the mower on a level surface with the
engine stopped. Also, make sure the engine is
cool and oil has had time to drain into the sump
[allow at least five (5) minutes after stopping
the engine].
IMPORTANT: NEVER check or add oil with the
engine running.
2.

5.
Before removing the dipstick, clean the area
around the dipstick to keep any dirt or debris out
of the engine.
3.
Remove the dipstick, wipe off with a clean rag,
then reinsert the dipstick into the tube and press
all the way down.
4.
Remove the dipstick again and check the oil
level on the dipstick. The oil level should be
within the “Operating Range” on the dipstick
(between the LOW mark and the FULL mark).
If additional oil is needed, refer to Specifications
for proper crankcase lubricant. Fill to the FULL
mark.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT overfill crankcase [oil
above FULL level] as this CAN result in engine
overheating, loss of power, and possible
engine damage.
Changing Engine Crankcase Oil/Oil Filter
Change the engine crankcase oil after every 50
hours of operation and the oil filter after every 100
hours of operation as follows:
1.
Park the mower on a level surface with the
engine stopped. The engine oil should be
warm before draining. If not warm from operation, start the engine and run a few minutes to
warm the oil.
2.
Before removing the dipstick, clean the area
around it to keep any dirt or debris out of the
engine.
Maintenance Instructions
3.
Remove the dipstick and oil drain plug, and drain
oil into a suitable container. Be sure to allow
ample time for complete drainage.
4.
Before removing the oil filter, clean the area
around the filter to keep dirt and debris out of the
engine.
5.
Remove the old oil filter and wipe off the filter
mounting surface on the engine.

7.
Install the new oil filter on the engine. Turn the
oil filter clockwise until the rubber gasket contacts the sealing surface, then tighten the filter
an additional 1/2 to 3/4 turn.
8.
Reinstall the drain plug.
9.
Fill the crankcase with new, clean oil. Use only
crankcase lubricants recommended by the
engine manufacturer. Refer to Specifications in
this manual or the engine owner’s manual. Use
the recommended oil viscosity for the expected
ambient temperature. Oil with the correct viscosity will aid starting in cold weather and assure
proper lubrication in hot weather. Fill to FULL
mark on the dipstick; crankcase capacity is 1.5
quarts (1.4 liters) when changing oil and filter.
IMPORTANT: Check the dipstick reading before pouring in the last 1/2 pint of oil and fill only
to the FULL mark. The oil level should never be
over the FULL mark on the dipstick; overfilling
can result in engine overheating and loss of
power.
10. Start the engine and check for oil leaks around
the oil filter. Stop the engine, recheck the oil level, and add oil if necessary. (When the engine
is first operated with a new oil filter, the oil level
will drop slightly as the filter is filled with oil.)
Grease Fitting and Oil Point Lubrication
Lubricate the grease fittings and oil points after
every 25 hours of operation. Lubricate more often
when operating in dusty or dirty conditions. Use
SAE general purpose lithium or molybdenum base
grease for grease fittings and light machine oil (SAE
10) to lubricate oil points. Lubricate the locations
shown in the Chassis and Deck Lubrication
Points illustration.

6.
Apply a thin coating of new oil to the rubber gasket on the replacement oil filter.
IMPORTANT: Use ONLY oil filters from the
engine manufacturer. Aftermarket oil filters may
not seal properly and/or may not have the correct pressure relief valve for proper lubrication.
NOTE: PTO universal joints (on the deck and tractor) require routine lubrication after every 8 hours of
running time.
NOTE: The best way to lubricate the PTO tube half
of the universal joint assembly is to remove it from
the tractor. See instructions for removing and installing PTO quick coupler, refer to Deck Installation in
Mower Deck Installation on Tractor in the Assembly Instructions.

LUBRICATION
Mower Deck Gearbox Lubrication
The mower deck gearboxes (tee gearbox and blade
drive gearboxes) are connected as a unitized
assembly, and oil flows freely between them. The
gearboxes are permanently lubricated (oil filled) and
sealed requiring no scheduled lubrication. However,
the gearbox oil seals should be checked every 25
hours for indication of an oil leak; particularly the
lower seals on the blade drive gearboxes should be
inspected, since they operate in a dirty environment.
If an oil leak is noted, replace the oil seal and relubricate the gearbox assembly as follows:
1.
Remove gearbox cover (footrest). Deck orientation should be the normal operating position.
Blade Drive
Gearboxes
IMPORTANT: DO NOT overfill the deck gearboxes. The gearbox assembly is not vented,
and overfilling with oil will cause excessive pressure and result in oil leaks.
5.
Check condition of the cover gasket and replace
if worn or damaged. Reinstall gearbox cover
plates; torque screws to 24 in-lb (2.7 N·m).
Transaxle Lubrication
• The transaxle oil lubrication is SAE 20W-50 (API
Service Class SL or higher) engine oil.
• Inspect both transaxle cases and hoses after every 100 hours of operation for visible leaks.
• The fluid levels for each transaxle can be
checked visually by looking at the fluid levels in each
expansion reservoir. When the transaxles are cold,
the fluid level in the expansion reservoirs should be
between 1/4" and 1/2" (.64 cm and 1.27 cm).

2.
Clean the area around the individual gearbox
cover plates to prevent contaminants from
entering the gearcase.
3.
Remove the screws securing the cover plates
on the blade drive gearboxes.
4.
Check the level of lubricant in the gearboxes. If
the lubricant is low, add SAE E.P. (Extreme
Pressure) 80W-90 oil until the oil level is up to
(submerges) the horizontal shaft in the gearbox
(shaft parallel to cover plate).
NOTE: In case the gearboxes are completely
drained of oil, approximately 5 fl. oz. (15 cl) of oil
per gearbox is required to refill the gear drive
assembly.
NOTE: Since the gearboxes are connected as
a unit by connector tubes, it is necessary to add
oil slowly. Allow a few minutes after adding oil
for the oil to flow throughout the assembly and
the oil level to stabilize before reassembly.

Transaxle Oil and Filter Change
Change the transaxle oil after the initial break-in
period of 50 hours. Thereafter, change oil every
250 hours of operation as follows:
1.
Thoroughly clean the exterior of the transmission housing before servicing. Using a 1/4” hex
wrench, remove the plug on the underside of
each transaxle allowing the oil to drain.
2.
Remove and replace the oil filters using a 3/8”

5.
Fill the transaxles with 20W-50 (API Service
Class SL or higher) oil through the reservoir. Fill
up to the opening.
6.
Remove the block from the left wheel and reattach the reservoir hoses to the transaxles.
7.
Both reservoirs should have a maximum oil level
of 1/4” (6.35 mm) with 20W-50 (API Service
Class SL or higher) oil.
To prevent engine overheating and possible engine
damage, clean grass clippings, chaff and dirt from
the rotating engine air intake screen every 8 hours of
operation. In certain mowing conditions (dry grass,
leaves, tree "cotton", etc.) it may be necessary to
check and clean this area several times each day to
prevent engine overheating. Also, visually check
inside cylinder head shroud and between cylinder
head fins for material packed in this area which
would prevent cooling airflow; remove shroud and
clean as required.
8.
Start and drive the unit for 1- 2 minutes.
9.
If the transaxles sound noisy or have poor steering response, recheck oil level in both
transaxles by removing the elbows (check oil
level at fill opening).
IMPORTANT: Yearly or every 100 hours, remove
engine cooling shroud and clean cylinder head cooling fins to prevent overheating. Make sure cooling
shroud is reinstalled properly.
10. If oil needs to be added refer back to steps 5-9.

CLEANING
NOTE: Washing the element in water or cleaning
solution is not recommended. Replace the element
if it does not clean up with compressed air.
• Use a bright light inside the element to inspect for
damage. Check the element very carefully for pin
holes or other damage that will allow dirt to leak
through the paper media. Replace element if necessary.
• Use a clean, damp cloth and wipe the interior of
the air cleaner body clean. Use special care to clean
both the inside and outside surfaces of the outlet
tube.
• Install foam pre-cleaner over dry element and reassemble onto engine. Tighten knob mounting air
cleaner element securely, 1/2 to 1 turn after contacting cover, but do not over-tighten. Make sure element is sealed tightly against the element cover and
base plate. Reinstall air cleaner cover.
Clean Cooling Fins and Fan
Air Cleaner System
The engine is equipped with a paper air cleaner element with an oiled foam pre-cleaner which
surrounds the paper element. Clean and re-oil the
foam pre-cleaner every 25 hours; more often in
dusty/dirty conditions. Inspect the paper element
every 100 hours and replace yearly (or when dirty or
damaged). Service the foam precleaner as follows:
• Remove air cleaner cover and remove foam precleaner by sliding it off the paper element.

Using the carrier frame lift handle, raise deck to
the TILT-UP position and insert the deck hook
into the tilt-up latch on the tractor body.
Transaxle Cooling Fins
Keeping the cooling fins on the transaxles clean and
free of obstruction is essential to avoid overheating the transmission fluid and shortening
transmission life. The cooling fins should be
checked every 100 hours; and cleaned if
necessary.
To clean the fins, use compressed air and/or a pressure washer. The cooling fins extend all the way
around the housing -- the fins underneath need to be
clean as well as the more visible fins above. Also,
pay close attention to the area under the drive pulley.
Tilt-Up Latch
Deck Secured in Tilt-Up Position
3.
An additional procedure in maintaining transaxle
cooling is to inspect the cooling fans. Replace the
fan(s) if blades are missing or damaged.
Clean grass buildup underneath the deck using
a pressure washer (and scraper if required).
NOTE: If the buildup is severe, it may be easier
to clean the deck by removing the deck assembly from the tractor and standing the desk
assembly on its “nose”.
NOTE: While some degree of material buildup
in the mower deck housing can be tolerated, a
point is finally reached where cutting quality
deteriorates and clogging begins to occur
because of too much buildup on the baffling and
housing.
4.
IMPORTANT: In case an oil leak develops on the
input shaft, the cooling fan blowing dusty air and oil
on the transmission will quickly pack the cooling fins
with oily dirt. If this condition occurs, contact your
dealer immediately to avoid overheating and damaging the transaxle.
Lower the deck to the normal operating position
and re-engage the deck lock levers.

Maintenance Instructions
Security of Air Cleaner System
NOTE: The following inspection is only an external
inspection and should be done without “disturbing” the filtration components.
On a daily basis, visually inspect the external condition of the air cleaner cover.
Check for damage. Make sure the cover is in place
and the cover latches are secure - do not run the
engine without the air cleaner cover in place and
secure.
Battery
NOTE: For initial battery service during setup, refer
to Battery Service in Assembly Instructions.
IMPORTANT: Make sure battery is securely
mounted in the frame. A loose battery may cause
damage to the case resulting in acid leakage and
severe damage to the machine. A hazard may be
created by damage to critical working parts and
safety systems.
Cleaning the Terminals
If battery terminals are corroded, remove battery
from the mower. Using a wire brush, remove corrosion with a solution of one part baking soda and
four parts water. Rinse with clean water. Coat the
terminals with petroleum jelly or terminal protector
spray to retard further corrosion.
Charging the Battery
DANGER
BATTERIES PRODUCE EXPLOSIVE
GASES
CHECKING/SERVICING
Check the battery charge by measuring the specific
gravity of electrolyte; if specific gravity is less than
1.225, the battery will need to be charged as follows:
• Charge the battery at 15 amps for 10 minutes.
DO NOT exceed 20 amps maximum recommended
charging rate. Charge until specific gravity is at
least 1.250. Total charging time should not exceed
one (1) hour.
Tire Pressure
Inflate tires to pressures shown below:
Deck Caster Wheel = 20 PSI (137 kPa)
Drive = 15 PSI (103 kPa)
Rear = 20 PSI (137 kPa)
Wheel Nuts Torque
Check every 100 hours the eight (8) Drive Tire
mounting nuts. They should each be torqued to 7585 ft-lbs. (101.7-115.2 N⋅m).
Sharpen Mower Blades
Check mower blade(s) for straightness, sharpness, condition of the cutting edge, and balance
every 10 hours of operation (or more often when
mowing abrasive type grass or operating on sandy
soils). Replace blades if worn, bent, cracked, or
otherwise damaged (refer to REPLACING/
REPAIRING the Mower Blades in this section).
Use the following procedure to check and sharpen
blades:
NOTE: Keep blades sharp - cutting with dull
blades not only yields a poor mowing job but slows
the cutting speed of the mower and causes extra
wear on the engine and blade drive by pulling hard.
1.
Stop the engine, remove ignition key, and disconnect the spark plug wires before raising the
mower deck to service blades.
2.
Raise the deck and secure it in the tilt-up position (refer to Deck Secured in Tilt-Up Position
photo in CLEANING of Grass Buildup in
Mower Housing in this section).
• Charge the battery in a well-ventilated
area, so that gases produced while charging can dissipate.
• Keep sparks, flames, and smoking materials away from the battery at all times.
• Make sure the battery cap vents are open
(check manifold vent on each cap).
• Make sure the battery charger is unplugged before connecting or disconnecting cables to the battery.
DANGER
NEVER operate cutter blades with the
deck in the raised position.
NOTE: PTO shaft must be disconnected
before checking blades for straightness.
44
Maintenance Instructions
3.
CHECKING/SERVICING
Check the blades for straightness by marking
the blade tip position inside the deck housing,
and then rotating the opposite end of the blade
to the same position and comparing. If the difference in blade tip track is more than 1/8 in.
(3 mm), the blade is bent and should be replaced.

WARNING
Mower Blade Profile For Sharpening
DO NOT try to straighten a blade that is
bent. NEVER weld a broken or cracked
blade. ALWAYS replace with a new blade
to assure safety.
4.
5.
If the blade cutting edge is dull or nicked, it
should be sharpened. Remove blades for
sharpening by grasping the end of the blade
using a rag or a thick, padded glove, while loosening and removing the nut, lock washer, and
flat washer that mounts the blade.
Blade Balancer
Grind cutting edge at the same bevel as the
original. Sharpen only the top of the cutting
edge to maintain sharpness.
NOTE: Blades can be sharpened with an
electric blade sharpener, conventional electric
grinder, or a hand file.
CAUTION

7.
Mount the blade with wing tips pointing up into
the housing. Reinstall the blade, washer, lock
washer, and nut. Tighten the nut to 60 ft-lb
(81.3 N·m).
Drive Belts
ALWAYS wear eye protection and gloves
when sharpening a blade.
6.
Check blade balance by positioning the blade
horizontally on a blade balancer or use a nail or
shaft through the center hole. If either end of the
blade rotates downward, grind (remove) metal
on that end until the blade will balance. The
blade is properly balanced when neither end
drops. Balance of a blade is generally maintained by removing an equal amount of material
from each end of the blade when sharpening.
Raise the body and inspect the condition of the two
(2) drive belts after every 25 hours of operation -engine/PTO drive and ground drive. If the belts show
signs of cracking or deteriorating, the belts
should be replaced. Refer to REPLACING/REPAIRING the Drive Belts in this section.
Mower Deck Gearbox Oil Seals
The mower deck gearbox seals should be inspected
every 25 hours for evidence of oil leaking; particularly the lower oil seal on the blade drive gearbox. This seal is protected by the trash guard on the
blade hub and seal protector plate on the housing,
but is still vulnerable to seal damage due to operating
in an adverse environment. The mower blade must
be removed for inspection of the seal, so it is recommended to inspect the gearbox seals when
blades are removed for sharpening. If an oil leak
is noted, the seal should be replaced and the gearbox assembly relubricated. Refer to Mower Deck
Gearbox Lubrication in this section.

replacement plug). Check the spark plug gap with a
wire-type feeler gauge and set the gap between
0.028 and 0.032 in. (0.7 and 0.8 mm). Reinstall and
tighten to 17 ft-lb (23 N·m). Both spark plugs should be
replaced yearly.
Check the function of the cutter blade brake by
engaging the blade clutch (PTO), operating the
engine at full throttle, then disengaging the clutch
and measuring how quickly the blades stop. Watch
the rotation of the blade drive shaft as a visual indication that movement has stopped. If the brake is
working properly, all rotation will stop five (5)
seconds after disengagement of the clutch. If the
brake system malfunctions -- blades do not stop in
five (5) seconds -- repair the brake before operating
the mower.
REPLACING/REPAIRING
Breaker Points
DANGER
The Briggs & Stratton engine is equipped with electronic ignition. No breaker points, maintenance, or
adjustments are necessary with this system. Contact an authorized Briggs & Stratton engine dealer in
case of ignition failure.
To prevent accidental starting of the
engine when replacing parts or repairing
the machine, remove the key from the
ignition switch and disconnect the spark
plug wires.
Fuel Lines and Clamps
Every year, inspect the fuel line from the tank to
engine for deterioration or damage. Also, inspect the
fuel line clamps for tightness. Good preventive
maintenance calls for complete replacement of fuel
lines and clamps every two (2) years.
Blade Brake Action
IMPORTANT: ALWAYS use genuine factory replacement parts. Substitute parts CAN result in
product malfunction and possible injury to the operator and/or others.
Drive Belts
WARNING
There are two (2) individual belts on the machine:
It is important to check and maintain blade
brake action for safe operation of the machine.
• Engine/PTO Belt (Matched Set)
• Ground Drive Belt
The belts may be removed and replaced using the

Fuel Filter
Blade Overload Shear Bolts
Model MB is equipped with an in-line fuel filter.
Visually inspect the filter periodically, and replace
the filter yearly.
The cutting blade is keyed to the blade hub by two
(2) shear bolts (10-24 x 5/8 in. stainless steel machine screws). These bolts are designed to shear
and protect the blade drive gearbox from damage if
the blade encounters a shock load.

Fuel Filter Location
IMPORTANT: Replace the fuel filter only in a clean
area where the fuel line and connections will not be
contaminated by any dust and dirt.
DANGER
Gasoline is extremely flammable and can
be highly explosive. To minimize danger:
• Use only an approved fuel container for
gasoline.
• DO NOT allow open flames or sparks
near the machine while performing maintenance or refueling; DO NOT smoke
while working with fuel.
• Wipe up spilled gasoline immediately
and completely.
1.
Expand and slide clamps on either side of the
filter away from filter and pull fuel lines off filter.
2.
Replace filter.
NOTE: Tightening the 5/8-18 blade mounting nut
to 60 ft-lb (81.3 N·m) is also important for proper
shock load protection. It is important to not overtighten the mounting nut since this defeats (overrides) the function of the shear bolts.
If these bolts shear, remove the blade and install
new bolts. Refer to CHECKING/SERVICING in this
section for Sharpen Mower Blades which describes
the blade removal and installation procedure.
After reinstalling the blade, check blade timing by
moving blades through one (1) complete revolution. Make sure blade tips pass clear of each other.
If timing is incorrect, contact your Walker Dealer.
PTO Shear Pin
The PTO drive shaft connection to the deck gearbox
has a shear pin to provide shock load protection to the
mower deck drive. This system provides primary
shock protection in case of blade impact and will
normally shear before the individual shear bolts on
the blade hub.
When the PTO pin has sheared, use the following
procedure to replace it:
1.
Loosen the two bolts securing the PTO shaft
guard on the deck; lift the guard off. (Holes in
guard are slotted for easy removal.)
49
Maintenance Instructions
2.
Rotate U-joint on shaft to align the shear pin hole
with the hole (and shear pin fragment) in the
shaft. Use a punch to drive the remaining portion
of the old shear pin out.
3.
Install new shear pin and secure with cotter pin.
Set Screw
REPLACING/REPAIRING
• Examine ends of the blade carefully, especially the
intersection where the flat section of the blade turns
up to form the “wing tip” (refer to Mower Blade Profile For Sharpening illustration in Sharpen Mower
Blades instructions). Since sand and abrasive material can wear metal away in this area, the blade
should be replaced when metal thickness has
worn to 1/16 in. (1.6 mm) or less.
DANGER

IMPORTANT: Use only Walker P/N 8067-13
shear pins for replacement to provide proper
shock protection -- these pins are hardened to
shear under a specific amount of load.
4.
Reinstall the PTO shaft guard.
Before operating the deck, inspect the blade overload shear bolts and also check blade timing (on gear
driven decks) by moving blades through one (1)
complete revolution. Make sure blade tips pass
clear of each other. If timing is incorrect, contact your
Walker Dealer.
Mower Blades
Mower blades are removed and remounted as described in the Sharpen Mower Blades instructions.
During the course of sharpening and inspecting
mower blades, if there are any of the following conditions of wear or damage, blades should be replaced for reasons of safety and performance of the
machine:
• An excessive amount of the flat section of the
blade has been ground away (removed) when the
blade is sharpened. Replace the blade when less
than a 3/4 in. (19 mm) flat section remains at the
blade tip.
50
When blades are operated over sandy soil,
and if blades are allowed to wear, a “slot”
may be worn into the wing tip of blade.
Eventually a piece of the blade may break
off creating a serious potential for injury or
damage.
• Check the blades for straightness by marking
blade tip position inside the deck housing and then rotating the opposite end of the blade to the same position and comparing. If the difference in blade tip
track is more than 1/8 in. (3 mm), the blade is bent
and should be replaced.
• Inspect the blade surface, especially in formed
areas, for cracks. Replace the blade if any cracks
are found.
WARNING
DO NOT try to straighten a blade that is
bent. NEVER weld a broken or cracked
blade. ALWAYS replace with a new blade
to assure safety.
Reinstall the blades following procedure from Sharpen Mower Blades instructions. If blades are replaced, always use Walker original equipment
blades to ensure safety and optimum performance.
The quality and performance of replacement blades
offered by other manufacturers cannot be guaranteed, they could be dangerous.
CAUTION
ALWAYS use genuine factory replacement
parts. Substitute parts CAN result in product malfunction and possible injury to the
operator.

Transmission Control
IMPORTANT: The proper adjustment of the transaxle control stops is essential for efficient operation
and life of the transaxle. These stops are properly
adjusted at the factory and should only require readjustment if the transaxle or related control linkage is
removed or changed.
Adjust the position of the RH lever by turning the
stop bolt in the Speed Control Actuator in or out.
Turning the stop bolt in will make the RH lever
move back, and turning it out will make it move
forward. Tighten the lock nut.
Stop
Bolt
NOTE: It would not be unusual for a new machine,
after initial 5 or 10 hours of operation, to begin to not
travel straight (this is due to the break-in of the transaxles).
Steering Lever Position Adjustment - Step 1
NOTE: For proper operation, the steering levers
should be adjusted to sit evenly using the following
procedure.
1.
Examine the steering levers to make sure they
are parallel front to back in relation to one another. If they are not equal, adjust accordingly.
(The handles may or may not be even at this
point.)
NOTE: The LH steering lever is non-adjustable. This procedure will require adjustment of
the RH lever to make it even with the LH lever.
Levers should sit
parallel to each other
Stop Bolt Location
Steering Handles Adjustment - Step 2
1.
An adjustment range of approximately 3 inches
is available on the steering handles - the handles can be adjusted forward or aft depending
on the arm length of the operator. The handles
can be adjusted by loosening the lock nut at the
pivot point and the lock nut holding the handle in
position in the adjustment slide. Adjust the handles into the most comfortable position and
tighten both lock nuts.

Neutral Position Adjustment - Step 3
1.
With the Forward Speed Control (FSC) in neutral, the lever should be straight up. Adjust by
loosening the jam nuts on the FSC Rod and turn
the rod to attain the straight up position. Tighten
the jam nuts.
Actuator Rod Length Adjustment
3.
Block the tractor up so the drive tires are off the
ground.
4.
With the FSC in neutral, start the engine. (Operate first at idle and then normal operating
speed) and check for movement of drive
wheels.
FSC Position
NOTE: If the engine will not start, check and adjust the neutral safety switch (see adjustment
below).
5.
With the FSC in the neutral position and the engine running, the wheels should not move. If a
drive tire is moving, the Control Rod on that side
is out of adjustment. Adjust that side to achieve
neutral. Now both transaxles are in the neutral
window.

Rods and turn the rods to achieve a measurement of 4-7/8" between the jam nuts. Be sure to
tighten jam nuts before making the measurement.
Neutral Window
Maintenance Instructions
6.
One at a time adjust the left and right Control
Rods to find the center of the neutral window.
Shorten the rods until the drive tire turns forward
then lengthen it until the drive tire turns in reverse
(approximately 1 turn). Position the rods 1/2 way
between forward and reverse. Tighten the jam
nuts.
7.
Lower drive tires onto ground.
ADJUSTMENTS
3.
If travel is not straight, shorten the control rod of
the slow side (adjust in 1/8 turn increments) to
match the faster side while maintaining the neutral position. If straight tracking and neutral can
not be achieved, turn the control rod back to
where neutral can be achieved.
4.
Lengthen the control rod of the faster side (adjust in 1/8 turn increments) to match the slower
side while maintaining the neutral position.
5.
If the forward travel is straight throughout the
speed range, except at maximum speed - place
the FSC in full forward, turn the set screw in the
Transmission Control Arm, of the faster side, in
until it contacts the hydro stud. (Turning the set
screw in slows the wheel.) Turn the set screw in
an additional 1/8 turn. Recheck for equal full forward speed. Adjust this set screw until equal full
forward speed is achieved. Tighten the jam nut.
Full Forward Speed Adjustment - Step 4
1.
Move the FSC to the full forward speed position.
2.
Raise the body. The set screws in the left and
right Transmission Control Arms should not be
contacting the locating stud in the transaxle. If
they are, back the set screws out until they do
not touch.
Neutral Travel End

Straight Tracking Adjustment - Step 5
1.
Sit in the seat, start the engine, set throttle at full
speed, and with the FSC in the neutral-park position check for movement of either drive wheel
(if either wheel moves backward or forward, refer back to the Neutral Position Adjustment Step 2 and readjust).
2.
Check for straight ground tracking on a level
surface (with hands off the steering levers). Set
the FSC at several different speeds and observe if the mower moves in a straight line (use
cement joint or other line on ground for reference).

2.
With the steering levers held back, move the
FSC lever back from the forward position. With
a proper amount of friction adjusted, the FSC lever should move back with a slight amount of resistance (friction). If the FSC lever movement is
"stiff", the friction needs to be decreased.
3.
The FSC friction is increased or decreased by
tightening or loosening the friction adjustment
nut. Loosen or tighten the nut and check the
control function until the conditions of both
steps 1 and 2 are met.
Place the FSC in neutral position. Loosen the
bottom lock nut and adjust switch body up with
top nut until the switch contacts open. Turn the
nut an additional 1 turn. Tighten lower nut.

Forward Speed Control Friction Adjustment - Step 7
When the carrier frame hinge joint is properly adjusted, the deck lock levers should move in and out
of the engaged and disengaged positions freely. All
four hitch pins used for height adjustment should sit
flush on the washers above the deck pin bushing.
On a level surface, if any pin is sticking up (likely the
front pins), tighten the opposite side or loosen the
same side to lower the pin. Adjustments are made
by loosening the jam nut and tightening or loosening the set screws on the Deck Mount Pivot Brackets. Retighten the jam nut when the adjustment is
complete.

engaged.
Clutch Rod
PTO Clutch
WARNING
It is important to check and maintain
blade brake action for safe operation of
the machine.
The declutched or disengaged position of the PTO
clutch is adjustable and is set to completely release
spring tension on the mechanical clutch. The
spring in the linkage that engages the clutch should
not have any tension on it when the clutch is
disengaged. Adjust the PTO clutch engagement
adjustment bolt up or down to allow minimal free
movement in the disengaged position. If this can
not be achieved, the clutch rod will need to be
adjusted.
The clutch rod and ball joints are factory adjusted to
10-1/8 inch (25.72 cm) overall length. Increasing the
length will increase the free movement of the spring
on the clutch engagement arm. Decreasing the
length will increase the amount of spring stretch in the
engaged position. (Refer to PTO Clutch Adjustment - Engaged illustration.)
