5. Insert the height adjustment pin into the hole corresponding to the desired cutting height.

See the decal on the side of the deck lift plate for cut heights.

6. Push the deck lift pedal, release the transport lock and allow the deck to lower to the cutting height.

Adjusting the Anti-Scalp Rollers

It is recommended to change the anti-scalp roller position, when the height of cut has changed.

1. Stop the machine and move the motion control levers outward to the neutral locked position.

2. Disengage the PTO.

3. Engage the park brake.

4. Stop the engine, remove the key and wait for all moving parts to stop.

5. After adjusting the height of cut, adjust the anti-scalp rollers by removing the nyloc nut, bushing, spring disc washer and whizlock nut.

6. Place the rollers in one of the positions shown

(Figure 18). Rollers will maintain 3/4 inch (19 mm) clearance to the ground to minimize gouging and roller wear or damage.

Note: The foot operated deck lift assist lever can be used to momentarily lift the deck to clear objects. Be sure that PTO is disengaged.

8. Torque the 3/8–16 whizlock nut to 30-35 ft-lb

(41-47 N-m) (Figure 19).

9. Torque the 3/8 nyloc nut to 30–35 ft-lb (41-47

For cutting heights above 3.5 inches (90 mm) use the bottom hole. The rollers will still be effective against scalping.

Transporting a Unit

Use a heavy-duty trailer or truck to transport the machine. Lock brake and block wheels. Securely fasten the machine to the trailer or truck with straps, chains, cable, or ropes. Be sure that the trailer or truck has all necessary lighting and marking as required by law. Secure a trailer with a safety chain.

For Maximum Deck Flotation, place the rollers one hole position lower. Rollers should maintain

1/4 inch (6.4 mm) clearance to the ground.


Not adjust the rollers to support the deck.

7. Be sure the whizlock nuts are installed with the spring disc washer between the head of the nut and the mounting bracket.




This unit does not have proper turn signals, lights, reflective markings, or a slow moving vehicle emblem. Driving on a street or roadway without such equipment is dangerous and can lead to accidents causing personal injury. Driving on a street or roadway without such equipment may also be a violation of State laws and the operator may be subject to traffic tickets and/or fines.

Do Not drive a unit on a public street or roadway.


Loading a unit on a trailer or truck increases the possibility of backward tip-over.

Backward tip-over could cause serious injury or death.

• Use extreme caution when operating a unit on a ramp.

• Use only a single, full width ramp; Do

Not use individual ramps for each side of the unit.

• If individual ramps must be used, use enough ramps to create an unbroken ramp surface wider than the unit.

• Do Not exceed a 15° angle between ramp and ground or between ramp and trailer or truck.

• Avoid sudden acceleration while driving unit up a ramp to avoid tipping backward.

• Avoid sudden deceleration while backing unit down a ramp to avoid tipping backward.

Loading a Unit

Use extreme caution when loading units on trailers or trucks. One full width ramp that is wide enough to extend beyond the rear tires is recommended instead of individual ramps for each side of the unit. The lower rear section of the tractor frame extends back between the rear wheels and serves as a stop for tipping backward. Having a full width ramp provides a surface for the frame members to contact if the unit starts to tip backward. If it is not possible to use one full width ramp, use enough individual ramps to simulate a full width continuous ramp.

Ramp should be long enough so that the angles between the ramp and the ground and the ramp and the trailer or truck do not exceed 15°. A steeper angle may cause mower deck components to get caught as the unit moves from ramp to trailer or truck. Steeper angles may also cause the unit to tip backward. If loading on or near a slope, position the trailer or truck so it is on the down side of the slope and the ramp extends up the slope. This will minimize the ramp angle. The trailer or truck should be as level as possible.

Important: Do Not attempt to turn the unit while on the ramp, you may lose control and drive off the side.

Avoid sudden acceleration when driving up a ramp and sudden deceleration when backing down a ramp.

Both maneuvers can cause the unit to tip backward.

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.
