Operation

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, spring disc washer, and bolt.

6. Place the rollers in one of the positions shown

(Figure 17). Rollers will maintain 3/4 inch (19

mm) clearance to the ground to minimize gouging and roller wear or damage.

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

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

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

Not adjust the rollers to support the deck.

7. Be sure the roller bolts are installed with the spring disc washer between the head of the bolt

and the mounting bracket (see Figure 18).

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 nyloc nut to 50–55 ft-lb (68-75

N-m).

Transporting the Machine

Use a heavy-duty trailer or truck to transport the machine. Ensure that the trailer or truck has all necessary lighting and marking as required by law.

Thoroughly read all of the safety instructions.

Knowing this information could help you, your family, pets, or bystanders avoid injury.

To transport the machine:

• Lock the brake and block the wheels.

• Securely fasten the machine to the trailer or truck with straps, chains, cable, or ropes.

• Secure a trailer to the towing vehicle with safety chains.

WARNING

Driving on the street or roadway without turn signals, lights, reflective markings, or a slow moving vehicle emblem is dangerous and can lead to accidents causing personal injury.

Do not drive machine on a public street or roadway.

Operation

Loading the Machine

Use extreme caution when loading or unloading machines onto a trailer or a truck. Use a full-width ramp that is wider than the machine for this procedure. Back up ramps and drive forward down

ramps (Figure 19).

Back up ramps g028043

2.

Drive forward down ramps

Important: Do not use narrow individual ramps for each side of the machine.

Ensure the ramp is long enough so that the angle with

the ground does not exceed 15 degrees (Figure 20).

On flat ground, this requires a ramp to be at least four times (4X) as long as the height of the trailer or truck bed to the ground. A steeper angle may cause mower components to get caught as the unit moves from the ramp to the trailer or truck. Steeper angles may also cause the machine to tip or lose control. If loading on or near a slope, position the trailer or truck so that it is on the down side of the slope and the ramp extends up the slope. This will minimize the ramp angle.

WARNING

Loading a machine onto a trailer or truck increases the possibility of tip-over and could cause serious injury or death.

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

• Ensure that the ROPS is in the up position and use the seat belt when loading or unloading the machine. Ensure that the

ROPS will clear the top of an enclosed trailer.

• Use only a full-width ramp; do not use individual ramps for each side of the machine.

• Do not exceed a 15-degree angle between the ramp and the ground or between the ramp and the trailer or truck.

• Ensure the length of ramp is at least four times (4X) as long as the height of the trailer or truck bed to the ground. This will ensure that ramp angle does not exceed 15 degrees on flat ground.

• Back up ramps and drive forward down ramps.

• Avoid sudden acceleration or deceleration while driving the machine on a ramp as this could cause a loss of control or a tip-over situation.
