IMPORTANTThis cutting machine is capable of amputating hands and feet and throwing objects.

Failure to observe the following safety instructions could result in serious injury or death.

GENERAL OPERATION

• Read, understand, and follow all instructions in the manual and on the machine before starting.

• Only allow responsible adults, who are familiar with the instructions, to operate the machine.

• Clear the area of objects such as rocks, toys, wire, etc., which could be picked up and thrown by the blade.

• Be sure the area is clear of other people before mowing.

Stop machine if anyone enters the area.

• Never carry passengers.

• Do not mow in reverse unless absolutely necessary.

Always look down and behind before and while backing.

Be aware of the mower discharge direction and do not point it at anyone.

Do not operate the mower without either the entire grass catcher or the guard in place.

• Slow down before turning.

• Never leave a running machine unattended.

Always turn off blades, set parking brake, stop engine, and remove keys before dismounting.

• Turn off blades when not mowing.

• Stop engine before removing grass catcher or unclogging chute.

• Mow only in daylight or good artificial light.

• Do not operate the machine while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

or truck.

Data indicates that operators,

age 60

years and above, are involved in a

large percentage of riding mowerrelated injuries. These operators should evaluate their ability to operate the riding mower safely enough to protect themselves

and others from

serious injury.

SLOPE OPERATION

Slopes are a major factor related to lossof-control and tipover accidents, which can result in severe injury or death. All slopes require extra caution. If you cannot back up the slope or if you feel

uneasy on it, do not mow it.

DO:

• Mow up and down slopes, not across.

• Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree

limbs, etc.

Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps.

Uneven

terrain could overturn

the machine.

Tall grass can hide obstacles.

• Use slow speed.

Choose a low gear so that you will not have to stop or shift while on the slope.

Follow the manufacturer's

recommen-

dations for wheel weights or counter-

weights to improve stability.

Use extra care with grass catchers or

other attachments.

These can change

the stability

of the machine.

Keep all movement

on the slopes slow and gradual.

Do not make sudden

changes

in speed or direction.

• Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If

tires lose traction, disengage

the

blades and proceed slowly straight

down the slope.

2

DO NOT:

Do not turn on slopes unless necessary, and then, turn slowly and gradually downhill, if possible.

Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches, or

embankments.

The mower could suddenly turn over if a wheel is over the edge of a cliff or ditch, or if an edge caves in.

Do not mow on wet grass.

Reduced traction could cause sliding.

Do nottry to stabilize the machine by putting your foot on the ground.

Do not use grass catcher on steep slopes.

CHILDREN

Tragic accidents can occur if the operator is not alert to the presence of children.

Children

are often attracted to the machine and the mowing activity.

Never

assume that children will remain where you last saw them.

Keep children out of the mowing area and under the watchful care of another responsible adult.

Be alert and turn machine off if children enter the area.

Before and when backing, look behind and down for small children.

Never carry children.

They may fall off and be seriously injured or interfere with safe machine operation.

Never allow children to operate the machine.

• Use extra care when approaching blind corners, shrubs, trees, or other objects that may obscure vision.

SERVICE

• Use extra care in handling gasoline and other fuels. They are flammable and vapors are explosive.

Use only an approved container.

Never remove gas cap or add fuel with the engine running.

Allow engine to cool before refueling.

Do not smoke.

Never refuel the machine indoors.

Never store the machine or fuel container inside where there is an open flame, such as a water heater.

3

• Never carry children.

They may fall off and be seriously injured or interfere with safe machine operation.

Keep children out of the mowing area and under the watchful care of another responsible adult.

Be alert and turn machine off if children enter the area.

• Before and when backing, look behind and down for small children.

• Mow up and down slopes (15 ° Max), not across.

Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree limbs, etc.

• Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps.

Uneven terrain could overtum the machine.

Tall grass can hide obstacles.

Use slow speed.

Choose

a low gear

so that you will not have to stop or shift while on the slope.

• Avoid starting or stopping on a slope.

If tires lose traction, disengage the blades and proceed slowly

straight

down the slope.

• If machine stops while going uphill, disengage blades, shift into reverse and back down slowly.

stopping may cause engine to

"backfire".

Turn ignition key to "OFF" position and

remove key.

Always remove key when leaving tractor to prevent unauthorized use.

Never use choke to stop engine.

IMPORTANT: Leaving the ignition

switch in any position other than "OFF" will cause the battery to be discharged,

(dead).

NOTE: Under certain conditions when tractor is standing idle with the engine running, hot engine exhaust gases may cause "browning" of grass.

To eliminate this possibility, always stop engine when stopping tractor on grass areas.

CAUTION: Always stop tractor completely, as described above, before leaving the operator's position; to empty grass catcher, etc.

TO USE THROTTLE CONTROL

Always operate engine at full throttle.

Operating engine at less than full throttle reduces the battery charging rate.

• Full throttle offers the best bagging and mower performance.

TO MOVE FORWARD AND

BACKWARD

The direction and speed of movement is controlled by the gearshift lever.

• Start tractor with clutch/brake pedal depressed and gearshift lever in neutral (N) position.

• Move gearshift lever to desired position.

• Slowly release clutch/brake pedal to start movement.

IMPORTANT: Bring tractor to a complete stop before shifting or changing gears.

Failure to do so will shorten the useful life of your transaxle.

TO ADJUST MOWER cu'n'ING

HEIGHT

The position of the attachment

lift lever

determines the cutting height.

Grasp lift lever.

• Press plunger with thumb and move lever to desired position.

The cutting height range is approximately 1-1/2 to 4". The heights are measured from the ground to the blade tip with the engine not running.

These heights are approximate and may vary depending upon soil conditions, height of grass and types of grass being mowed.

The average lawn should be cut to approximately 2-1/2 inches during the cool season and to over 3 inches during hot months.

For healthier and better looking lawns, mow often and after moderate growth.

• For best cutting performance, grass over 6 inches in height should be mowed twice.

Make the first cut relatively high; the second to desired height.

TO OPERATE MOWER

Your tractor is equipped with an operator presence sensing switch.

Any attempt by the operator to leave the seat with the engine running and the attachment clutch engaged will shut off the engine.

• Select desired height of cut.

• Start mower blades by engaging attachment clutch control.

• TO STOP MOWER BLADES - disengage attachment clutch control.

_,CAUTION: Do not operate the mower without either the entire grass catcher, on mowers so equipped, or the deflector shield in place.

Use an appropriate means of tying hood to tractor (rope, cord, etc.).

TOWING CARTS AND OTHER

ATrACHMENTS

Tow only the attachments that are recommended by and comply with specifications of the manufacturer of your tractor.

Use common sense when towing.

Too heavy of a load, while on a slope, is dangerous.

-13res can lose traction with the ground and cause you to lose control of your tractor.

BEFORE STARTING THE ENIGNE

CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL

• The engine in your tractor has been

shipped, from the factory, already filled

with summer weight oil.

• Check engine oil with tractor on level ground.

• Remove oil fill cap/dipstick and wipe clean, reinsert the dipstick and screw cap tight, wait for a few seconds, remove and read oil level.

If necessary, add oil until "FULL" mark on dipstick is reached.

Do not overfill.

• For cold weather operation you should change oil for easier starting (See "OIL

VISCOSITY CHART" in the Maintenance section of this manual).

• To change engine oil, see the Maintenance section in this manual.

ADD GASOLINE

• Fill fuel tank.

Use fresh, clean, regular

unleaded

gasoline with a minimum

of

87 octane.

(Use of leaded gasoline will increase carbon and lead oxide deposits and reduce valve life).

Do not mix oil with gasoline.

Purchase fuel in quantities that can be used within 30 days to assure fuel fresh-

Bess.

IMPORTANT: temperatures

When operating in below 32°F(0°C), use fresh, clean winter grade gasoline to help insure good cold weather starting.

WARNING: Experience indicates that alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture which leads to separation and formation of acids during storage.

Acidic gas can damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage.

To avoid engine problems, the fuel system should be emptied before storage of 30 days or longer.

Drain the gas tank, start the engine and let it run until the fuel lines and carburetor are empty.

Use fresh fuel next season.

See Storage Instructions for additional information.

Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the fuel tank or permanent damage may

OCCUr.

_CAUTION: Fill to bottom of gas tank filler neck.

Do not overfill.

Wipe off any spilled oil or fuel.

Do not store, spill or use gasoline near an open flame.

14

TO START ENGINE

When starting the engine for the first time or if the engine has run out of fuel, it will take extra cranking time to move fuel from the tank to the engine.

• Sit on seat in operating position, depress clutch/brake pedal and set parking brake.

• Place gear shift lever in neutral (N) position.

• Move attachment clutch to "DISEN-

GAGED" position.

• Move throttle control to choke position.

NOTE: Before starting, read the warm and cold starting procedures below.

• Insert key into ignition and turn key clockwise to "START" position and release key as soon as engine starts.

Do not run starter continuously for more than fifteen seconds per minute.

If the engine does not start after several attempts, move throttle control to fast position, wait a few minutes and try again.

If engine still does not start, move the throttle control back to the choke position and retry.

WARM WEATHER STARTING (50 ° F and above)

• When engine starts, move the throttle control to the fast position.

• The attachments and ground drive can now be used.

If the engine does not accept the load, restart the engine and allow it to warm up for one minute using the choke as described above.

COLD WEATHER STARTING ( 50 ° F and below)

• When engine starts, allow engine to run with the throttle control in the choke position until the engine runs roughly, then move throttle control to fast position.

This may require an engine warm-up period from several seconds to several minutes, depend-

ing on the temperature.

• The attachments can also be used during the engine warm-up period.

NOTE: If at a high altitude (above 3000 feet) or in cold temperatures (below 32

F) the carburetor fuel mixture may need to be adjusted for best engine performance.

See "TO ADJUST CARBURE-

TOR" in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual.

MOWING TIPS

• Tire chains cannot be used when the mower housing is attached to tractor.

Mower should be properly leveled for

best mowing performance.

See "TO

LEVEL MOWER HOUSING" in the

Service and Adjustments section of this manual.

The left hand side of mower should be

used for trimming.

Drive so that clippings are discharged

onto the area that has been cut.

Have the cut area to the right of the tractor.

This will result in a more even distribution of clippings and more uniform cutting.

When mowing large areas, start by

turning to the right so that clippings will

discharge away from shrubs, fences,

driveways, etc.

After one or two

rounds, mow in the opposite

direction

making left hand turns until finished.

If grass is extremely tail, it should be mowed twice to reduce load and

possible fire hazard from dried

clippings.

Make first cut relatively

high; the second to the desired height.

Do not mow grass when it is wet.

Wet grass will plug mower and leave undesirable clumps.

Allow grass to dry before mowing.

Always

operate engine at full throttle when mowing

to assure better mowing

performance and proper discharge of material.

Regulate ground speed by selecting a low enough gear to give the mower cutting performance as well as the quality of cut desired.

When operating attachments,

select a ground speed that will suit the terrain

and give best performance

of the attachment being used.

GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS

The warranty

on this tractor does not

cover items that have been subjected to operator abuse or negligence.

To

receive full value from the warranty,

operator must maintain tractor as

instructed in this manual.

Some adjustments will need to be made periodically to properly maintain your tractor.

All adjustments in the Service and

Adjustments section of this manual should be checked at least once each season.

• Once a year you should replace the spark plug, clean or replace air filter, and check blades and belts for wear.

A new spark plug and clean air filter assure proper air-fuel mixture and help your engine run better and last longer.

BEFORE EACH USE

Check engine oil level.

• Check brake operation.

• Check tire pressure.

• Check operator presence and interlock systems for proper operation.

• Check for loose fasteners.

TO MAINTENANCE "ENGINE"

SECTION

IMPORTANT" DO not oil or grease the pivot points which have special nylon bearings.

Viscous lubricants will attract dust and dirt that will shorten the life of the self-lubricating bearings.

If you feel they must be lubricated, use only a dry, powdered graphite type lubricant

16 sparingly.

TRACTOR

Always observe safety rules when performing any maintenance.

BRAKE OPERATION

If tractor requires more than six (6) feet stopping distance at high speed in highest gear, then brake must be adjusted.

(See "TO ADJUST BRAKE" in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual).

TIRES

• Maintain proper air pressure in all tires

(See "PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS" section of this manual).

• Keep tires free of gasoline, oil, or insect control chemicals which can harm rubber.

• Avoid stumps, stones, deep ruts, sharp objects and other hazards that may cause tire damage.

NOTE: To seal tire punctures and prevent flat tires due to slow leaks, tire sealant may be purchased from your local parts dealer. Tire sealant also prevents tire dry rot and corrosion.

OPERATOR PRESENCE SYSTEM

Be sure operator presence and interlock systems are working properly.

If your tractor does not function as described, repair the problem immediately.

• The engine should not start unless the clutch/brake pedal is fully depressed and attachement clutch control is in the disengaged position.

• When the engine is running, any attempt by the operator to leave the seat without first setting the parking brake should shut off the engine.

• When the engine is running and the attachment clutch is engaged, any attempt by the operator to leave the seat should shut off the engine.

• The attachment clutch should never operate unless the operator is in the seat.

BLADECARE

For best results mower blades must be kept sharp.

Replace bent or damaged blades.

BLADE REMOVAL

• Raise mower to highest position to allow access to blades.

• Remove hex bolt, lock washer and flat washer securing blade.

17

Install new or resharpened

blade with

trailing edge up towards deck as shown.

IMPORTANT: To ensure proper assem-

bly, center hole in blade must align with

star on mandrel assembly.

Reassemble

hex bolt, lock washer

and flat washer

in exact order as shown.

Tighten

TO SHARPEN BLADE

NOTE:

We do not recommend

sharpening blade - but it you do, be sure the blade is balanced.

Care should be taken to keep the blade balanced.

An unbalanced

blade will cause

excessive

vibration and eventual damage to mower and engine.

The blade can be sharpened

with a

file or on a grinding wheel.

Do not attempt to sharpen while on the

mower.

• To check blade balance, you will need a 5/8" diameter steel bolt, pin, or a cone balancer.

(When using a cone balancer, follow the instructions supplied with balancer.)

NOTE: Do not use a nail for balancing blade.

The lobes of the center hole may appear to be centered, but are not.

• Slide blade on to an unthreaded portion of the steel bolt or pin and hold the bolt or pin parallel with the ground.

If blade is balanced, it should remain in a horizontal position.

If either end of the blade moves downward, sharpen the heavy end until the blade is balanced.

BATTERY

Your tractor has a battery charging system which is sufficient for normal use.

However,

periodic charging of the battery

with an automotive

charger will extend

its life.

Keep battery and terminals clean.

• Keep battery bolts tight.

Keep small vent holes open.

• Recharge at 6-10 amperes for 1 hour.

NOTE: The original equipment battery on your tractor is maintenance free. Do not attempt to open or remove caps or covers.

Adding or checking level of electrolyte is not necessary.

TO CLEAN BAI-FERY AND TERMINALS

Corrosion and dirt on the battery and terminals can cause the battery to "leak" power.

• Open battery box door.

• Disconnect BLACK battery cable first then RED battery cable and remove battery from tractor.

• Rinse the battery with plain water and dry.

• Clean terminals and battery cable ends with wire brush until bright.

• Coat terminals with grease or petroleum jelly.

• Reinstall battery (See "REPLACING

BATTERY" in the SERVICE AND

ADJUSTMENTS section of this manual).

V-BELTS

Check V-belts for deterioration and wear after 100 hours of operation and replace if necessary.

The belts are not adjustable.

Replace belts if they begin to slip from wear.

TRANSAXLE COOLING

Keep transaxle free from build-up of dirt and chaff which can restrict cooling.

ENGINE

LUBRICATION

RANGE ANTICIPATED

B-1EF0 R E N_0XT 011 CH30ANGE 40

NOTE: Although multi-viscosity

oils

(5W30, 10W30 etc.) improve starting in cold weather, these multi-viscosity oils will result in increased oil consumption when used above 32°F.

Check your engine oil level more frequently to avoid possible engine damage from running low on oil.

Change the oil after every 25 hours of operation or at least once a year if the tractor is not used for 25 hours in one year.

Check the crankcase oil level before starting the engine and after each eight

(8) hours of operation.

Tighten oil fill cap/ dipstick securely each time you check the oil level.

TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL

Determine temperature range expected before oil change.

All oil must meet API service classification SF, SG or SH.

• Be sure tractor is on level surface.

• Oil will drain more freely when warm.

• Catch oil in a suitable container.

• Remove oil fill cap/dipstick.

Be careful not to allow dirt to enter the engine when changing oil.

Remove drain plug.

• After oil has drained completely, replace oil drain plug and tighten securely.

• Refill engine with oil through oil fill dipstick tube.

Pour slowly.

Do not overfill.
