kickers (Fig. 6).
2. Tighten the blade bolt to 85–110 ft-lb (115–150 N⋅m).
2. Install the new kickers to the mower in the locations
shown in Figure 6.
3. Secure the kickers with 4 carriage bolts (5/16 x 1 inch)

Side Discharge or Mulch Grass
discharge or bagging options or mow first with the
height-of-cut at a high level; then mow again 2–3 days later
with a lower height setting.
Warning
Always mow with sharp blades – A sharp blade cuts
cleanly and without tearing or shredding the grass blade
like a dull blade. Tearing and shredding causes the grass to
turn brown at the edges which impairs growth and increases
susceptibility to disease.
Without the grass deflector, discharge cover, or
complete grass catcher assembly mounted in place,
you and others are exposed to blade contact and
thrown debris. Contact with rotating mower
blade(s) and thrown debris will cause injury or
death.
After operating – To ensure optimum performance, clean
underside of mower housing after each use. If residue is
allowed to build up in mower housing cutting performance
will decrease.
• Never remove the grass deflector from the
mower because the grass deflector routes
material down toward the turf. If the grass
deflector is ever damaged, replace it
immediately.
• Never put your hands or feet under the mower.
• Never try to clear discharge area or mower
blades unless you move the power take off
(PTO) to disengage and turn the ignition key to
off. Also remove the key and pull the wire off
the spark plug(s).
Ensure the mower has the hinged grass deflector that
disperses clippings to the side and down toward the turf,
while in side discharge mode.
To mulch grass clippings, the baffles must be installed into
the opening in the side of the mower.
Mulching Tips
Selecting the proper height-of-cut setting to suit
conditions – Remove approximately one inch or no more
that 1/3 of the grass blade when cutting. In exceptionally
lush and dense grass you may have to raise the
height-of-cut setting another notch or convert to side
discharge or bagging operations.
Mowing in extreme conditions – Air is required to cut and
recut grass clippings in mower housing, so do not set
height–of–cut too low or totally surround housing by uncut
grass. Always try to have one side of the mower housing
free from uncut grass, allowing air to be drawn into
housing. When making an initial cut thru center of uncut
area, operate machine slower and back up if mower starts to
clog.
Mow at proper intervals – Under most normal conditions
you’ll need to mow every 4–5 days. However, grass grows
at different rates at different times. Thus, in order to
maintain the same height-of-cut, which is a good practice,
you’ll need to cut more frequently in early spring; as the
grass growth rate slows in mid summer, cut only every
8–10 days. If you are unable to mow for an extended period
due to weather conditions or other reasons, convert to side
