SAFE MOWING GUIDE
Each person that operates power
equipment must learn to use correct and
safe mowing procedures. To help you
learn, carefully read the following
pages. Most of the time the operator was
not correctly shown or did not read the
instructions on the unit or in the Instruction
Book before using the unit. Also, some
operators do not have enough experience.
The result is unsafe use, endangering the
operator, bystanders and the equipment.
Another result can be a poor appearance
of the area mowed.
Read this book. Read the instructions on
the unit. Operate the mower according to
the Safe Mowing Guide. Follow all safety
rules, cautions or warnings in this book
and on the unit. Make sure anyone that
uses the unit reads the instructions and is
told how to safely operate the mower.
controls and how they work. In an
emergency, how fast you can stop the
blade is important. Learn how to control
the mower at all times.
Many engines are started by hand. When
you use a pull start or rope start, place
your feet apart and away from the blade(s).
Hold the rope handle tight. Never wrap the
rope around your arm or fingers for a
“better grip”. To start the engine, follow the
instructions on the mower, in this book and
in the engine operating instructions.
For electric start engines, sit in the seat to
start the engine. The battery can be
dangerous. Follow the instructions on the
battery, the acid container, and in this book
when working with the battery. Even small
batteries have enough voltage to cause an
injury. Always be careful.
The mower is designed to be operated by
one person. Never let another person ride
with you on the unit or on any accessories.
A passenger will make the unit harder to
control, block the visibility or distract the
operator and is dangerous to the operator,
the passenger and the equipment. Without
a passenger seat, the passenger can fall
from the mower or contact dangerous
parts. A mower is not a toy for showing off
or for giving rides.
The mower will give you good service and
durability, if operated in normal conditions.
If the mower is not correctly serviced or is
used where the terrain is rough or
unsuitable, product performance and
safety will be decreased.
Correct clothing is an important part of safe
mowing. Safety glasses will protect the
eyes from objects discharged by the
mower. Safety shoes with steel plates can
protect a foot from injury by the blade. For
protection from objects discharged from
the mower, wear clothing that will cover the
arms and legs.
Before you start cutting the grass, practice
using the mower in a large open and level
area. Learn the location of the controls on
the mower. Know the purpose of the
F-040602L
Never cut a wet lawn. Wet grass can
cause an accident, affect mower
performance and can cause problems with
future lawn growth and appearance. Wet
grass is slippery and can cause the mower
to slip. Someone can get injured by
touching the blade(s). Wet grass tends to
clog the mower, causing poor discharge.
Cut wet grass will collect on the lawn,
retarding the growth of the grass. Also,
getting the mower wet will cause parts to
rust and decrease the life of the unit.
When you look over the lawn, remember
obstacles that cannot be removed, like
pipes, stumps or rocks. Keep away from
these obstacles that can cause damage to
the mower or injury to the operator or a
person near the mower. Clear the area of
rocks, toys, wire or other loose objects.
These items can damage the mower or
can be discharged by the mower blade.
5
The blade of a power mower rotates very
fast. It can discharge rocks and other
objects over a long distance which can be
dangerous. The force of the objects can
break windows, cause injuries or even put
an eye out. Most of the time the injury is to
a person, like a child. Keep every person
completely away from the area to be
mowed. Make sure the grass is not
discharged toward anyone. Planning your
mowing pattern has a double advantage. It
can decrease the possibility of an injury
and make the clean up after mowing
easier.
Check the terrain of the area to be mowed.
Mow in a pattern that will keep you away
from dangerous areas. Check the distance
you need to stop and the distance
available to turn. Slopes and rough terrain
must be mowed carefully and some areas
must not be mowed at all. With riding
mowers, mow up and down the hill. When
you must mow rough terrain or on slopes,
never change directions or change gears
and stop in these areas only in an
emergency. Before you ride up or down a
slope, try to back straight up the slope. Do
not ride up or down a slope that is too
steep to back straight up. See the “Guide”
in the back of this Instruction Book to
check any slopes.
Before you start cutting, make sure the
mower was completely assembled
according to the Instruction Book. If the
SAFE MOWING GUIDE
mower was completely assembled at the
store, you must still check the mower
according to the assembly instructions.
Make sure the mower is correctly
assembled and that all fasteners are tight.
Make sure the engine has the correct
amount of oil. Check these items often
during the life of the mower.
Your mower has a gasoline engine.
Gasoline is a dangerous fuel. Keep
gasoline only in an approved safety
gasoline container. Do not keep large
amounts of gasoline. When you add
gasoline to the fuel tank, do not smoke.
Store the gasoline container and the
mower in an area that has good ventilation.
Also, keep the gasoline away from any
flames like the pilot light of a furnace or
any other source of ignition. If the mower is
to be stored for more than a few weeks,
remove the gasoline from the fuel tank.
When inside an enclosure, do not add
gasoline to the fuel tank. Before you add
gasoline, move the mower outside and add
gasoline carefully. Before you start the
engine, remove any gasoline from the
outside of the fuel tank or from the mower.
Warm gasoline will expand. Leave some
space in the fuel tank for the gasoline to
expand. Also, the fuel cap has a vent hole
for fuel vapors. Always use the correct fuel
cap. Failure to follow safety rules about
gasoline will cause fires and explosions,
injury to you and damage to the equipment
and other property.
of the mower. Stop the engine. Let the
engine and transmission cool before
servicing the mower. Remember, exhaust
fumes are dangerous. Never operate the
engine inside a building.
When you get a new mower, it can be a
new experience for the family. Tell each
person how a mower can be dangerous.
Remember, a mower is not a toy. A mower
is not to be used by children or anyone not
old enough, strong enough or that does not
have experience.
If the mower is not correctly assembled,
not operated correctly, or not regularly
serviced, the mower can be dangerous.
The most important rule to follow is always
use good judgement and common sense.
Mow safely and carefully.
Your mower will easily cut thick grass.
Fingers, feet and other parts can also be
cut by the blade. Injuries occur when the
operator does not think and reaches into
the chute opening. Always operate the
mower as if the blade is rotating. Do not
service or make an adjustment, except to
the carburetor, while the engine is running.
Use only accessories that are factory
approved for your mower. The wrong
accessory can decrease the safety of the
mower and can even damage the unit.
Read and follow the instructions included
with the accessory and the mower.
If you add gasoline to an engine that is
running or hot, the result can be an
explosion. Before you add gasoline, stop
the engine and let the engine cool for
several minutes. Remove dry grass and
other debris from the mower. Keep the
mower clean to improve the performance,
help the engine and transmission run
cooler, extend the life of moving parts, and
decrease the danger of a fire.
Use only original equipment or
replacement parts that are factory
approved for service. If you need service,
select an Authorized Service Center for
your mower. If you do the work on the unit,
follow the instructions in the Instruction
Book.
Before you leave the mower, stop the
engine. Remove the key. Disengage and
lower any attachment. Set the parking
brake. Never mount or dismount from the
seat while the engine is running. An
accident can occur if you touch the brake,
shift lever, throttle, clutch or blade control
while the engine is running. Mount and
dismount from the seat on the side of the
unit that is marked ENTER-EXIT.
Make sure you are in good condition when
you mow. When you mow for several hours
your reflexes will decrease and your mind
will not be as alert. Take a short break or
an accident can occur. If the temperature is
hot, use caution to prevent dehydration. If
you are tired, angry or not completely alert,
do not operate the mower. If you use
alcohol, medication or drugs, do not use
the mower or any type of power
equipment.
Engine speed is a key to safe mowing and
to a good looking lawn. The maximum
speed of the engine was set at the factory.
Do not change the setting of the engine
governor.
Select the maximum engine and ground
speed that is right for the terrain and the
height of the grass. The blade cuts best
when the engine is operating at maximum
speed. The engine and transmission will
also run cooler at maximum engine speed.
Fires and explosions are not the only
dangers when working around a mower.
The engine, transmission, and the muffler
will get hot in several minutes when the
engine is running. Do not touch these parts
F-040602L
When you mow, remember that children
are attracted to the mower. Always use
caution when mowing around obstacles
like trees or shrubs or when moving
backward. Only mow in a forward direction
if possible. Your visibility is decreased
when you mow backward. Also, the blades
are made to cut while the unit is moving
forward. If you mow backward, the cutting
performance decreases.

SAFE MOWING GUIDE
Also, the grass bagger will function better
when the engine is operating at maximum
speed. On slopes, decrease the ground
speed and use care making sure the
mower feels safe to operate.
feel new or excessive vibration,
immediately stop the engine and check for
the problem. Vibration can be a warning of
a problem. Keep all nuts, bolts and screws
tight.
If the weather conditions are bad, do not
mow. If weather conditions become bad,
stop cutting and finish later. It is dangerous
to cut grass in the rain. Always find
protection in an electrical storm. If the
weather conditions are extra dry, protect
your eyes with safety glasses from the dust
and from the objects discharged by the
mower. Also, a dust or a pollen mask can
help.
The blade is the most dangerous part of
the mower. Frequently check the blade and
the blade mounting fasteners. Keep the
fasteners tight. If the blade hits a solid
object, stop the engine. Remove the wire
from the spark plug. Check for a blade that
is bent, cracked or for other damages.
Before you start the engine, replace a
damaged blade(s). For safety, replace the
blade every two years.
Your mower is equipped with a number of
safety devices which are important to the
safety of the operator and bystanders and
must never be changed or removed from
the mower. If a safety device is lost,
damaged or no longer functions, repair or
replace the device before you operate the
mower.
It is best to mow during the day. If you
must mow at night, make sure there is
enough light for safe operation.
Your mower will require regular
maintenance and service. The
maintenance schedule depends on the
hours of use. Also, mowing conditions can
change the schedule. Check the
Instruction Book for more information.
Correct maintenance will help the mower
function safely.
Do not service the
mower (except for the
carburetor adjustment)
while the engine is
running. Before you
service the unit, even
with the engine stopped,
always disconnect the
wire from the spark plug
to prevent the engine
from starting.
If you hit a large object during operation,
stop the engine. Remove the wire from the
spark plug. Carefully inspect the mower for
damage. Before you start the engine
again, make the necessary repairs. If you

A sharp blade decreases the workload on
the engine and more evenly cuts grass.
Frequently sharpen the blade for a better
looking cut. Use the left side of the mower
housing to trim near an object.
A grass bagger is a good accessory for
your mower. For best performance and
safety, make sure the grass bagger is
approved for use with your mower. Follow
the assembly and operation instructions
included with the grass bagger.
Some grass baggers require a special
blade for best performance. Before you
attach, check, or empty the grass bagger,
always stop the engine. Before each use of
the grass bagger, check for cracks, wear or
deterioration. Before you use the grass
bagger, replace a damaged part with a
replacement part approved by the factory.
For you to have a good green lawn, follow
the mowing procedures below. Do not cut
the grass too short. If you cut the grass too
short you can cause the grass to become
yellow or make the lawn look brown. Use a
lower height of cut in cool months when
the grass is thicker. Raise the height of cut
in hot dry periods. If you cut the grass with
7
a blade that is not sharp or at a slow
engine speed you can damage the grass.
Move the throttle control to the FAST
position when mowing and using the grass
bagger. Also, use a slower ground speed
when using the grass bagger.
If you change the direction or pattern of cut
slightly every time you mow will make the
grass grow stronger and thicker. Do not
add oil or gasoline to the mower while on
the lawn. Spilled oil or gasoline can kill the
grass. In high or thick grass, do not try to
cut all the grass the first time. Raise the
height of cut on the first cutting and lower
the height for the next cutting. Another way
is to cut only part of the width of the mower
and decrease your ground speed (not the
engine) to move more slowly so that the
mower can discharge the grass as it
moves forward.
Understand the controls and how they
work. Learn the ground speed(s) of your
mower. Check the stopping distance
required at different travel speeds. Check
the turning radius of the mower. The
controls on your riding mower are different
from an automobile. The throttle is
operated by hand and holds the engine
speed constant until it is changed. The
location of the shift lever and the shift
pattern is different from that of an
automobile. Also, the brake and clutch
systems are different. Remember the
procedures to follow in an emergency.
Remember, turning off the engine ignition
switch will stop the blade and the drive
mechanism. If the traction of the wheels is
lost or does not feel safe, disengage all
systems and stop the engine. Dismount
from the mower. Push the unit to a safe
place before you begin mowing again.
Your unit has an electrical system that
includes an operator presence switch in
the seat. The operator presence switch
detects if the operator is sitting on the seat.
The engine will stop if the operator leaves
the seat when the blade engagement
control is engaged. This operator presence
switch is a safety device only. It must not
regularly be used to stop the engine or the
blade. There are other control systems on
the mower for this purpose. Always keep
the operator presence switch and other
safety devices and controls in place and
operating for your protection.
Remember, your mower is a tool that can
be dangerous if it is not correctly used.
Follow the instructions in this Instruction
Book. Safe and careful use of the mower
will give you many safe hours of problem
free use.
STEPS TO FOLLOW
BEFORE MOWING

Always use a safety gasoline container. Do not
smoke when adding gasoline to the engine. When
inside an enclosure, do not fill with gasoline. Before
you add gasoline, stop the engine. Let the engine
cool for several minutes.
IMPORTANT: This unit is equipped with an internal combustion
engine and must not be used on or near any unimproved
In the State of California the above is required by law (Section
4442 of the California Public Resources Code). Other states
may have similar laws. Federal laws apply on federal lands.
See an Authorized Service Center for a spark arrester for the
muffler.
In some areas, local law requires the use of a resistor spark
plug to control the ignition signals. See an Authorized Service
Center for a resistor spark plug for the engine.
NOTE: Actual sustained horsepower will likely be lower due to
operating limitations and environmental factors.
CHECK THE LEVEL OF THE MOWER HOUSING
Make sure the level of cut is still correct. After you mow a short
distance, look at the area that was cut. If the mower housing does
not cut level, see the instructions on “How To Level The Mower
Housing” in the Maintenance section of this instruction book.
CHECK THE TIRES
Check the air pressure in the tires. Tires with too much air pressure
will cause the unit to ride rough. Also, the wrong air pressure will
keep the mower housing from cutting level. The correct air pressure
(PSI) is 14 PSI (1 BAR). The tires were over inflated for shipment.

a slope or in a turn on a hill, move the throttle control to the
SLOW position to help prevent an accident.
OPERATION
OPERATING TIPS
1.
Check the blade rotation control for correct adjustment. For the
blade(s) to disengage correctly, the adjustment must be correct.
5.
Before you make an inspection, adjustment (except for the carburetor) or repair, make sure the wire from the spark plug is disconnected.
2.
Before you use the unit, check the oil in the engine and add oil
if necessary.
6.
For longer life of the battery on electric start models, charge the
battery every three months.
3.
If the engine will not start, first make sure the wire is attached
to the spark plug.
7.
Use the shift lever to change the ground speed, not the throttle
control.
4.
Make sure all the belts are inside all the belt guides. See the instructions on how to remove and install the motion drive and
mower drive belts.
8.
Belt noise can occur when the blade or clutch is engaged. This
noise is normal and does not affect the operation of the unit.
MOWING AND BAGGING TIPS
1.
For a lawn to look better, check the cutting level of the mower
housing. See “How To Level The Mower Housing” in the Maintenance section.
10. For better engine performance and an even discharge of the
cut grass, always operate the engine with the throttle in FAST
position.
2.
For the mower housing to cut level, make sure the tires have
the correct amount of air pressure.
11. When you use a bagger, operate the engine with the throttle in
FAST position and the shift lever in first or second gear.
3.
Every time you use the unit, check the blade. If the blade is bent
or damaged, immediately replace the blade. Also, make sure
the nut for the blade is tight.
4.
Keep the blade(s) sharpened. Worn blades will cause the ends
of the grass to turn brown.
5.
Do not cut or bag grass that is wet. Wet grass will not discharge
correctly. Let the grass dry before cutting.
6.
Use the left side of the mower housing to trim near an object.
7.
Discharge the cut grass onto the mowed area. The result is a
more even discharge of cut grass.
8.
When you mow large areas, start by turning to the right so that
the cut grass will discharge away from shrubs, fences, driveways, etc. After one or two rounds, mow in the opposite direction making left turns until finished (Figure 13).
9.
If the grass is very high, cut two times to decrease the load on
the engine. First cut with the mower housing in the highest position and then lower the mower housing for the second cut.
F-040602L
12. For better cutting performance and a quality cut, mow with the
shift lever in one of the slower speeds.
13. After each use, clean the bottom and top of the mower housing
for better performance. Also, a clean mower housing will help
prevent a fire.

MAINTENANCE
9.
Tighten the nut that holds the blade to a torque of 35 foot
pounds (47,5 N-m).
10. Install the mower housing. See “How To Install The Mower
Housing”.
INSPECT BLADE
WARNING: Before you inspect or remove the blade,
disconnect the wire to the spark plug. If the blade hits
an object, stop the engine. Check the unit for damage. The blade has sharp edges. When you hold the
blade, use gloves or cloth material to protect your
hands.
If you keep the blade sharp and inspect the blade for damage, the
blade will cut better and be more safe to operate. Frequently check
the blade for excessive wear, cracks, or other damage. Frequently
check the nut that holds the blade. Keep the nut tight. If the blade
hits an object, stop the engine. Disconnect the wire to the spark plug.
See if the blade is bent or damaged. Check the blade adapter for
