Installation Instructions
• Become familiar with the safe operation of the
equipment, with the operator controls, and safety
Use extra care with grass catchers or other
attachments. These can change the operating
characteristics and the stability of the machine.
Follow the manufacturer's recommendations
for adding or removing wheel weights or
counterweights to improve stability.
Do not use a grass catcher on steep slopes. A
heavy grass catcher could cause loss of control
or overturn the machine.
Slow down and use extra care on hillsides. Be
sure to travel in the recommended direction on
hillsides. Turf conditions can affect the stability of
the machine. Use extreme caution while operating
near drop-offs.
Keep all movement on slopes slow and gradual.
Do not make sudden changes in speed, direction,
or turning.
The grass catcher can obstruct the view to the
rear. Use extra care when operating in reverse.
Use care when loading or unloading the machine
into a trailer or truck.
Never operate with the discharge deflector raised,
removed or altered, unless using a grass catcher.
Keep hands and feet away from moving parts. Do
not make adjustments with the engine running.
Park the machine on level ground, disengage
the drives, and shut off the engine before leaving
the operator's position for any reason including
emptying the grass catcher or unclogging the
If you remove the grass catcher, be sure to install
any discharge deflector or guard that might have
been removed to install the grass catcher. Do not
operate the mower without either the entire grass
catcher or the grass deflector in place.
Do not leave grass in the grass catcher for
extended periods of time.
Grass catcher components are subject to wear,
damage and deterioration, which could expose
you to moving parts or allow objects to be thrown.
