Electronic Control Unit Malfunction

Indicator

Kohler EFI Units Only:

The electronic control unit (ECU) continuously monitors operation of the EFI system. If a problem or fault within the system is detected, the malfunction indicator light (MIL) is illuminated. The MIL is the light located in the right console panel to the right of the throttle control. Follow the troubleshooting steps outlined in the Kohler engine operator’s manual if the

MIL is illuminated.

Refer to the Maintenance section and perform all the necessary inspection and maintenance steps.

Operating Instructions

Raise the Rollover Protection System

(ROPS)

Important: The roll bar is an integral and effective safety device. Keep the roll bar in the raised and locked position when operating the mower. Lower the roll bar temporarily only when absolutely necessary.

1. The knob must be completely latched with the

tabs interlocking as shown in Figure 11 to lock

the roll bar in the raised, operate position.

2. Apply forward pressure to the upper hoop of the roll bar.

3. Pull the knob and rotate 90° to hold in the unlatched position to lower the roll bar.

4. To return to the operate position, raise the roll bar, and then rotate knobs 90° so that the tabs interlock partially. Apply forward pressure to the roll bar upper hoop and observe that the knobs return to the completely latched position.

Pre-Start

Fill fuel tank on level ground. For best results use only clean, fresh regular grade unleaded gasoline with an octane rating of 87 or higher.

Important: Never use methanol, gasoline containing methanol, gasohol containing more than 10% ethanol, premium gasoline, or white gas because the fuel system could be damaged.

Do Not add oil to gasoline.

Do Not overfill fuel tank. Fill the fuel tank to the bottom of the filler neck. The empty space in the tank allows gasoline to expand. Overfilling may result in fuel leakage or damage to the engine or emission system.

Make sure you understand the controls, their locations, their functions, and their safety requirements.

attempts. Failure to follow these guidelines can burn out the starter motor.

7. If the choke is in the “ON” position, gradually return choke to the “OFF” position as the engine warms up.

Engaging the PTO

DANGER

The rotating blades under the mower deck are dangerous. Blade contact can cause serious injury or kill you.

Do Not put hands or feet under the mower or mower deck when the blades are engaged.

Important: Always use the seat belt with the roll bar in the operate (raised) position. Ensure that the rear part of the seat is secured with the seat latch.

Open the Fuel Shut-Off Valve

Rotate the valve and align with the fuel line to open.

Starting the Engine

1. Move the motion control levers out to the neutral lock position.

2. Pull up and back on the parking brake lever to engage the parking brake.

3. Push down on the PTO switch to the “disengage” position.

Note: It is not necessary for the operator to be in the seat to start the engine.

4. Place the throttle midway between the “SLOW” and “FAST” positions.

5. On a cold engine, push the choke lever forward into the “ON” position (except Kohler EFI units).

On a warm engine, leave the choke in the “OFF” position.

6. Turn ignition switch to the “START” position.

Release the switch as soon as the engine starts.

Important: Do Not crank the engine continuously for more than ten seconds at a time. If the engine does not start, allow a 60 second cool-down period between starting

DANGER

An uncovered discharge opening will allow objects to be thrown in an operator’s or bystander’s direction. Also, contact with the blade could occur. Thrown objects or blade contact can cause serious injury or death.

Never operate the mower with the discharge deflector raised, removed, or altered unless there is a grass collection system or mulch kit in place and working properly.

The PTO push-pull switch engages the cutting blades.

Be sure that all persons are clear of the mower deck and discharge area before engaging PTO.

Important: Operator must be in seat before the

PTO can be engaged.

1. Set the throttle midway between the “SLOW” and

“FAST” positions.

2. Pull the PTO switch outward to engage the blades.

3. Place the throttle in the “FAST” position to begin mowing.

Disengaging the PTO

1. Set the throttle midway between the “SLOW” and

“FAST” positions.

2. Push the PTO switch in to disengage the blades.

Stopping the Engine

1. Bring the unit to a full stop.

25

Operation

2. Move the motion control levers out to the neutral lock position.

3. Engage the parking brake.

4. Place the throttle midway between the “SLOW” and “FAST” positions.

5. Disengage the PTO.

6. Allow the engine to run for a minimum of 15 seconds, then turn the ignition switch to the

“OFF” position to stop the engine.

7. Remove the key to prevent children or other unauthorized persons from starting engine.

8. Close the fuel shut-off valve when the machine will not be in use for a few days, when transporting, or when the unit is parked inside a building.

Driving the Machine

CAUTION

Machine can spin very rapidly by positioning one lever too much ahead of the other. Operator may lose control of the machine, which may cause damage to the machine or injury.

• Use caution when making turns.

• Slow the machine down before making sharp turns.

Important: To begin movement (forward or backward) the operator must be in the seat, the brake lever must be disengaged (pushed down) before the motion control levers can be moved in or the engine will stop.

When the motion control levers are positioned fully outward (apart) in the T-slot, the drive system is in

the neutral lock position (Figure 13).

Note: The “N” LCD indicator appears when both levers are in the neutral lock position.

When the motion control levers are moved directly inward (together) the drive system is in the neutral operate position.

Driving Forward

1. Release the parking brake.

2. Move the motion control levers inward to the center to the neutral position.

3. To move forward in a straight line, move both levers forward with equal pressure.

Operation

Figure 14

To turn left or right, pull the motion control lever back toward neutral in the desired turn direction.

The machine will move faster the farther the motion control levers are moved from the neutral position.

4. To stop, position both motion control levers in the neutral operate position.

Driving in Reverse

1. Move the motion control levers inward to the neutral operate position.

2. To move rearward in a straight line, move both levers rearward with equal pressure.

To turn right, release pressure on the RH motion control lever and the rear of the machine will move towards the rear and to the right.

To turn left, release pressure on the LH motion control lever and the rear of the machine will move towards the rear and to the left.

3. To stop, position both motion control levers in the neutral operate position.

Adjusting the Cutting Height

The cutting height of the mower deck is adjusted from 1 to 5 1/2 inches (2.5 cm to 14 cm) in 1/4 inch

(6.4 mm) increments.

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

2. Disengage the PTO.

3. Position the transport lock in the latching position.

4. Raise and lock the deck to the 5 1/2 inch (14 cm)

transport position (Figure 16).

The deck is raised by pushing the foot operated deck lift pedal forward. The pedal is located at the front right corner of the floor pan.

Note: When changing the cutting height positions, always come to a complete stop and disengage the PTO.
