Operation

Operation

Note: Determine the left and right sides of the machine from the normal operating position.

Controls

Motion Control Levers

The motion control levers located on each side of the console control the forward and reverse motion of the machine.

Moving the levers forward or backward turns the wheel on the same side forward or reverse respectively. Wheel speed is proportional to the amount the lever is moved.

Moving the levers outward from the center position into the T-slot locks them in the neutral position

(Figure 5).

When the motion control levers are in the neutral position, the LCD indicator appears in the message display on the RH console (see Figure 9).

The choke is used to aid in starting a cold engine.

Moving the choke lever forward will put the choke in the “ON” position and moving the choke lever to the rear, to the detent, will put the choke in the “OFF” position. Do Not run a warm engine with choke in the “ON” position.

Choke Control

Located on right console (black lever) (see Figure 6).

Throttle Control

Located on right console (red lever) (see Figure 6).

The throttle is used to control engine speed. Moving the throttle lever forward will increase engine speed and moving the throttle lever to the rear will decrease engine speed. Moving the throttle forward into the detent is full throttle.

Brake Lever

Located on right side of unit, just to the front of the

RH motion control lever.

The brake lever engages a parking brake on the drive wheels.

Note: The LCD indicator appears in the message display on the RH console when the park brake is engaged (see Figure 9).

Pull the lever up and rearward to engage the brake.

Depress the release button and push downward to disengage the brake.

Operation

The hour meter records the number of hours that the engine has run.

Park brake

The unit must be tied down and brake engaged when transporting.

Ignition Switch

Located on right console (see Figure 6).

The ignition switch is used to start and stop the engine. The switch has three positions “OFF”, “ON” and “START”. Insert key into switch and rotate clockwise to the “ON” position. Rotate clockwise to the next position to engage the starter (key must be held against spring pressure in this position). Allow the key to return to the “on” position immediately after the engine starts.

Start

Note: Brake must be engaged, motion control levers out (neutral lock position) and PTO switch disengaged to start engine. (It is not necessary for the operator to be in the seat to start the engine.)

(see Figure 6 and Figure 9).

Hour/Voltage display

The hour meter is recording when the decimal point is flashing in Hour/Voltage display.

Hours are displayed when the key is off or when the machine is running.

Note: If the ignition key is turned to the “ON” position for a few seconds before cranking the engine, the battery voltage will display in the area where the hours are normally displayed.

Note: The LCD indicators appear when each control meets the “safe to start” mode (e.g. the indicator turns on when the operator is in the seat.)

Fuel Shut-Off Valve

Located behind and below the seat.

The fuel shut-off valve is used to shut off the fuel when the machine will not be used for a few days, during transport to and from the jobsite, and when parked inside a building.

Align valve handle with the fuel line to open. Rotate

90° to close.

Fuel Gauge

Located on the right console in the message display

(see Figure 6 and Figure 9).

21

Operation

The fuel level is shown on a bar display. The indicator light appears when the fuel level is low (approximately one gallon remaining in the tank).

Drive Wheel Release Valves

WARNING

Hands may become entangled in the rotating drive components below the engine deck, which could result in serious injury or death.

Stop engine, remove key, allow all the moving parts to stop before accessing the drive wheel release valves.

Note: The handle must be horizontal and against the stop for operation.

Do Not tow machine.

PTO Engagement Switch

Located on right console (see Figure 6).

Switch must be pulled out (up) to engage the blades.

Switch is pushed in to disengage the blades.

The LCD indicator will appear when the PTO switch is disengaged (see Figure 9).

WARNING

The engine and hydraulic drive units can become very hot. Touching a hot engine or hydraulic drive units can cause severe burns.

Allow the engine and hydraulic drive units to cool completely before accessing the drive wheel release valves.

Located on the back of the unitized hydraulic drive units, below the engine deck.

During normal operating conditions, the drive wheel release valves are positioned horizontally. If the machine has to be pushed by hand, the valves must be in the “released” position (see Figure 10).

Low Voltage Indicator

Located on the right console in the message display

(see Figure 6 and Figure 9).

A low voltage condition (less than 12.3 volts) exists when the LCD indicator appears on the message display while the engine is running.

If the ignition key is turned to the “ON” position for a few seconds before cranking the engine, the battery voltage will display in the area where the hours are normally displayed.

Note: The indicator normally appears when the engine is off and the key switch is turned to the

“ON” position.

Coolant Temperature Gauge

(Kawasaki Liquid-Cooled Only)

Located on the right console (see Figure 6).

The coolant temperature gauge monitors the temperature of the engine coolant. During normal operating conditions the gauge should be in the green range. An engine overheating condition is when the bar display goes to the yellow or red range and an alarm sounds. Refer to the Warning Buzzer section.

To release the drive system (see item 1 in Figure 10), rotate the handle 1/4 turn to the vertical position until it hits against the stop.

To reset the drive system (see item 2 in Figure 10), rotate the handle 1/4 turn to the horizontal position until it hits against the stop.

How do I choose the right cutting width for my needs?
The right cutting width for you depends on the size of your lawn. If you have a small lawn, a 42-inch cutting width will be sufficient. If you have a larger lawn, you may want to choose a 48-inch or 52-inch cutting width.
