GENERAL OPERATION
Read, understand, and follow all instruc-
tions in the manual and on the machine
before starting.
Only allow responsible adults, who are
familiar with the instructions, to operate
the machine.
Clear the area of objects such as rocks,
toys, wire, etc., which could be picked
up and thrown by the blade.
Be sure the area is clear of other people
before mowing. Stop machine if anyone
enters the area.
Never carry passengers.
Do not mow in reverse unless absolute-
ly necessary. Always look down and
behind before and while backing.
Be aware of the mower discharge direc-
tion and do not point it at anyone. Do
not operate the mower without either
the entire grass catcher or the guard in
place.
Slow down before turning.
Never leave a running machine unat-
tended. Always turn off blades, set park-
ing brake, stop engine, and remove
keys before dismounting.
Turn off blades when not mowing.
Stop engine before removing grass
catcher or unclogging chute.
Mow only in daylight or good artificial
light.
Do not operate the machine while under
the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Watch for traffic when operating near or
crossing roadways.
Use extra care when loading or unload-
ing the machine into a trailer or truck.
SLOPE OPERATION
Slopes are a major factor related to loss-
of-control and tipover accidents, which
can result in severe injury or death. All
slopes require extra caution. If you cannot
back up the slope or if you feel uneasy on
it, do not mow it.
DO:
Mow up and down slopes, not across.
Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree
limbs, etc.
Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps. Uneven
terrain could overturn the machine. Tall
grass can hide obstacles.
Use slow speed. Choose a low gear so
that you will not have to stop or shift
while on the slope.
Follow the manufacturer's recommen-
dations for wheel weights or counter-
weights to improve stability.
Use extra care with grass catchers or
other attachments. These can change
the stability of the machine.
Keep all movement on the slopes slow
and gradual. Do not make sudden
changes in speed or direction.
, Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If
tires lose traction, disengage the blades
and proceed slowly straight down the
slope.
')0 NOT:
,Do not turn on slopes unless necessary,
and then, turn slowly and gradually
downhill, if possible.
.Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches, or
embankments. The mower could sud-
denly turn over if a wheel is over the
edge of a cliff or ditch, or if an edge
caves in.
Do not mow on wet grass. Reduced
traction could cause sliding.
Donottrytostabilizethemachineby
putting your foot on the ground.
Do not use grass catcher on steep
slopes.
CHILDREN
Tragic accidents can occur if the operator
is not alert to the presence of children.
Children are often attracted to the
machine and the mowing activity. Never
assume that children will remain where
you last saw them.
Keep children out of the mowing area
and under the watchful care of another
responsible adult.
Be alert and turn machine off if children
enter the area.
Before and when backing, look behind
and down for small children.
Never carry children. They may fall off
and be seriously injured or interfere with
safe machine operation.
Never allow children to operate the
machine.
Use extra care when approaching blind
comers, shrubs, trees, or other objects
that may obscure vision.
SERVICE
Use extra care in handling gasoline and
other fuels. They are flammable and
vapors are explosive.
Use only an approved container.
Never remove gas cap or add fuel
with the engine running. Allow en-
gine to cool before refueling. Do not
smoke.
Never refuel the machine indoors.
Never store the machine or fuel
container inside where there is an
open flame, such as a water heater.
Never run a machine inside a closed
area.
Keep nuts and bolts, especially blade
attachment bolts, tight and keep equip-
ment in good condition.
Never tamper with safety devices.
Check their proper operation regularly.
Keep machine free of grass, leaves, or
other debris build-up. Clean oil or fuel
spillage. Allow machine to cool before
storing.
Stop and inspect the equipment if you
strike an object. Repair, if necessary,
before restarting.
3
Never make adjustments or repairs with
the engine running.
Grass catcher components are subject
to wear, damage, and deterioration,
which could expose moving parts or
allow objects to be thrown. Frequently
check components and replace with
manufacturer's recommended parts,
when necessary.
Mower blades are sharp and can cut.
Wrap the blade(s) or wear gloves, and
use extra caution when servicing them.
• Check brake operation frequently.
Adjust and service as required.
Be sure the area is clear of other people
before mowing. Stop machine if anyone
enters the area.
Never carry passengers.
Do not mow in reverse unless absolute-
ly necessary. Always look down and
behind before and while backing.
Never carry children. They may fall off
and be seriously injured or interfere with
safe machine operation.
Keep children out of the mowing area
and under the watchful care of another
responsible adult.
Be alert and turn machine off if children
enter the area.
Before and when backing, look behind
and down for small children.
Mow up and down slopes (15 °Max), no
across.
Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree
limbs, etc.
Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps. Unever
terrain could overturn the machine. Tall
grass can hide obstacles.
Use slow speed. Choose a low gear so
that you will not have to stop or shift
while on the slope.
Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If
tires lose traction, disengage the blades
and proceed slowly straight down the
slope.
Do notturn on slopes unless necessary,
and then, turn slowly and gradually
downhill, if possible.

Turn ignition key to "OFF" position and
remove key. Always remove key when
leaving tractor to prevent unauthorized
use.
Never use choke to stop engine.
IMPORTANT: Leaving the ignition switch
in any position other than "OFF' will cause
the battery to be discharged (dead).
NOTE: Under certain conditions when
tractor is standing idle with the engine run-
ning, hot engine exhaust gases may
cause "browning" of grass. To eliminate
this possibility, always stop engine when
,_pping tractor on grass areas.
CAUTION: Always stop tractor com-
pletely, as described above, before leaving
the operator's position; to empty grass
catcher, etc.
THROTTLE CONTROL
Always operate engine at full throttle.
Operating engine at less than full throt-
tle reduces the battery charging rate.
Full throttle offers the best bagging and
mower performance.
TO MOVE FORWARD AND BACKWARD
The direction and speed of movement is
controlled by the gearshift lever.
Start tractor with clutch/brake pedal
depressed and gearshift lever in neutral
(N) position.
Move gearshift lever to desired posi-
tion.
• Slowly release clutch/brake pedal to
start movement.
IMPORTANT: Bring tractor to a complete
stop before shifting or changing gears.
Failure to do so will shorten the useful life
of your transaxle
TO ADJUST MOWER CUTTING HEIGHT
The position of the attachment lift lever
determines the cutting height.
Grasp lift lever.
Press plunger with thumb and move
lever to desired position.
The cutting height range is approximate-
ly 1-1/2 to 4". The heights are measured
from the ground to the blade tip with the
engine not running. These heights are
approximate and may vary depending
upon soil conditions, height of grass and
types of grass being mowed.
13
The average lawn should be cut to
approximately 2-1/2 inches during the
cool season and to over 3 inches during
hot months. For healthier and better
looking lawns, mow often and after
moderate growth.
For best cutting performance, grass
over 6 inches in height should be
mowed twice. Make the first cut rela-
tively high; the second to desired
height.
TO OPERATE MOWER
Your tractor is equipped with an operator
presence sensing switch. Any attempt by
the operator to leave the seat with the
engine running and the attachment clutch
engaged will shut oft the engine.
Select desired height of cut.
Start mower blades by engaging attach-
ment clutch control.
TO STOP MOWER BLADES *disen-
_cage attachment clutch control.
AUTION: Do not operate the mower
without either the entire grass catcher, on
mowers so equipped, or the discharge
guard in place.

TO OPERATE ON HILLS
,_CAUTION: Do not drive up or down
hills with slopes greater than 15 °and do
not drive across any slope. A slope guide
at the back of your manual is provided for
your use.
Choose the slowest speed before start-
ing up or down hills.
Avoid stopping or changing speed on
hills.
If slowing is necessary, move throttle
control lever to slower position.
If stopping is absolutely necessary,
push clutch/brake pedal quickly to brake
position and engage parking brake.
Move gearshift lever to 1st gear. Be
sure you have allowed room for tractor
to roll slightly as you restart movement.
To restart movement, slowly release
parking brake and clutch/brake pedal.
Make all turns slowly.
TO TRANSPORT
Raise attachment lift to highest position
with attachment lift control.
When pushing or towing your tractor, be
sure gearshift lever is in neutral (N)
position.
Do not push .or tow tractor at more than
five (5) MPH.
NOTE: To prote.ct hood from damage
when transporting your tractor on a truck
or a trailer, be sure hood is closed and
secured to tractor. Use an appropriate
means of tying hood to tractor (rope, cord,
etc.).
BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE
CHECK ENGINE OIL LEVEL
The engine in your tractor has been
shipped, from the factory, already filled
with summer weight oil.
Check engine oil with tractor on level
ground.
Remove oil fill cap/dipstick and wipe
clean, reinsert the dipstick and screw
cap tight, wait for a few seconds,
remove and read oil level. If necessary,
add oil until "FULL" mark on dipstick is
reached. Do not overfill.
For cold weather operation you should
change oil for easier starting (See "OIL
VISCOSITY CHART" in the Mainten-
ance section of this manual).
To change engine oil, see the Mainten-
ance section in this manual.
ADD GASOLINE
Fill fuel tank. Use fresh, clean, regular
unleaded gasoline with a minimum of
87 octane• (Use of leaded gasoline will
increase carbon and lead oxide
deposits and reduce valve life). Do not
mix oil with gasoline. Purchase fuel in
quantities that can be used within 30
days to assure fuel freshness.
IMPORTANT: When operating in tempera-
tures below 32°F(0°C), use fresh, clean
winter grade gasoline to help insure good
cold weather starting.
14
_WARNING: Experience indicates that
alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol or
using ethanol or methanol) can attract
moisture which leads to separation and
formation of acids during storage. Acidic
gas can damage the fuel system of an
engine while in storage. To avoid engine
problems, the fuel system should be emp-
tied before storage of 30 days or longer.
Drain the gas tank, start the engine and let
it run until the fuel lines and carburetor are
empty. Use fresh fuel next season. See
Storage Instructions for additional informa-
tion. Never use engine or carburetor
cleaner products in the fuel tank or perma-
nent damage may occur.
_IiLCAUTION: Fill to bottom of gas tank
filler neck. Do not overfill. Wipe off any
spilled oil or fuel. Do not store, spill or use
gasoline near an open flame.
TO START ENGINE
When starting the engine for the first time
or if the engine has run out of fuel, it will
take extra cranking time to move fuel from
the tank to the engine.
* Sit on seat in operating position,
depress clutch/brake pedal and set
parking brake.
Place gear shift lever in neutral (N) posi-
tion.
Move attachment clutch to "DISEN-
GAGED" position.
Move throttle control to choke position.
NOTE: Before starting, read the warm
and cold starting procedures below.
Insert key into ignition and turn key
clockwise to "START" position and
release key as soon as engine starts.
Do not run starter continuously for more
than fifteen seconds per minute. If the
engine does not start after several
attempts, move throttle control to fast
position, wait a few minutes and try
again. If engine still does not start,
move the throttle control back to the
choke position and retry.
WARM WEATHER STARTING (50 ° F and
above)
When engine starts, move the throttle
control to the fast position.
The attachments and ground ddve can
now be used. If the engine does not
accept the load, restart the engine and
allow it to warm up for one minute using
the choke as described above.
COLD WEATHER STARTING (50 ° FAND
BELOW)
When engine starts, allow engine to run
with the throttle control in the choke
position until the engine runs roughly,
then move throttle control to fast posi-
tion. This may require an engine warm-
up period from several seconds to sev-
eral minutes, depending on the temper-
ature.
The attachments can also be used dur-
ing the engine warm-up period.
NOTE: At a high altitude (above 3000
feet) or in cold temperatures (below 32 F)
the carburetor fuel mixture may need to be
adjusted for best engine performance.
See "TO ADJUST CARBURETOR" in the
Service and Adjustments section of this
manual.

MOWING TIPS
Tire chains cannot be used when the
mower housing is attached to tractor.
Mower should be properly leveled for
best mowing performance. See "TO
LEVEL MOWER HOUSING" in the
Service and Adjustments section of this
manual.
The left hand side of mower should be
used for trimming.
Drive so that clippings are discharged
onto the area that has been cut. Have
the cut area to the right of the machine.
This will result in a more even distribu-
tion of clippings and more uniform cut-
ting.
When mowing large areas, start by turn-
ing to the right so that clippings will dis-
charge away from shrubs, fences, drive-
ways, etc. After one or two rounds,
mow in the opposite direction making
left hand turns until finished
If grass is extremely tall, it should be
mowed twice to reduce load and possi-
ble fire hazard from dried clippings.
Make first cut relatively high; the second
to the desired height.
Do not mow grass when it is wet. Wet
grass will plug mower and leave unde-
sirable clumps. Allow grass to dry
before mowing.
Always operate engine at full throttle
when mowing to assure better mowing
performance and proper discharge of
material. Regulate ground speed by se-
lecting a low enough gear to give the
mower the best cutting performance as
well as the quality of cut desired.
When operating attachments, select a
ground speed that will suit the terrain
and give best performance of the at-
tachment being used.

GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS LUBRICATION CHART
The warranty on this tractor does not cover OSp
items that have been subjected to operator Zerk
abuse or negligence. To receive full value ,,,,
from the warranty, operator must maintain
tractor as instructed in this manual. Some
adjustments will need to be made periodi-
cally to properly maintain your tractor.
All adjustments in the Service and
Adjustments section of this manual should
be checked at least once each season. OEngine
Once a year you should replace the
spark plug, clean or replace air filter, and
check blades and belts for wear. A new
spark plug and clean air filter assure
proper air-fuel mixture and help your
engine run better and last longer.
BEFORE EACH USE
Check engine oil level.
• Check brake operation.
Check tire pressure.
Check operator presence and interlock
systems for proper operation.
Check for loose fasteners.

TRACTOR
Always observe safety rules when per-
forming any maintenance.
BRAKE OPERATION
If tractor requires more than six (6) feet
stopping distance at high speed in highest
gear, then brake must be adjusted. (See
"TO ADJUST BRAKE" in the Service and
Adjustments section of this manual).
TIRES
Maintain proper air pressure in all tires
(See "PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS"
on page 5 of this manual).
Keep tires free of gasoline, oil, or insect
control chemicals which can harm rub-
ber.
Avoid stumps, stones, deep ruts, sharp
objects and other hazards that may
cause tire damage.
NOTE" To seal tire punctures and prevent
flat tires due to slow leaks, tire sealant
may be purchased from your local parts
dealer. Tire sealant also prevents tire dry
rot and corrosion.
OPERATOR PRESENCE SYSTEM
Be sure that operator presence and inter-
lock systems are working properly. If your
tractor does not function as described
below, repair the problem immediately.
The engine should not start unless the
clutch/brake pedal is fully depressed
and attachment clutch control is in the
disengaged position.
When the engine is running, any
attempt by the operator to leave the
seat without first setting the parking
brake should shut off the engine.
When the engine is running and the
attachment clutch is engaged, any
attempt by the operator to leave the
seat should shut off the engine.
The attachment clutch should never
operate unless the operator is in the
seat.
BLADE CARE
For best results mower blades must be
kept sharp. Replace bent or damaged
blades,
BLADE REMOVAL
Raise mower to highest position to allow
access to blades.
Remove hex bolt, lock washer and flat
washer securing blade.
Install new or resharpened blade with
trailing edge up towards deck as shown.
IMPORTANT: To ensure proper assembly,
center hole in blade must align with star
on mandrel assembly.
Reassemble hex bolt, lock washer and
flat washer in exact order as shown.
Tighten bolt securely (27-35 Ft. Lbs.
torque).
IMPORTANT: Blade bolt is Grade 8 heat
treated.

*A Grade 8 heat treated bolt can be
identified by six lines on the bolt head.
TO SHARPEN BLADE
NOTE: We do not recommend sharpening
blade, but if you do, be sure the blade is
balanced.
Care should be taken to keep the blade
balanced. An unbalanced blade will cause
excessive vibration and eventual damage
to mower and engine.
The blade can be sharpened with a file
or on a grinding wheel. Do not attempt
to sharpen while it is on the mower.
To check blade balance, you will need a
5/8" diameter steel bolt, pin, or a cone
balancer. (When using a cone balancer,
follow the instructions supplied with bal-
ancer).
NOTE: Do not use a nail for balancing
blade. The lobes of the center hole may
appear to be centered, but are not.
Slide blade onto an unthreaded portion
of the steel bolt or pin and hold the bolt
or pin parallel with the ground. If blade
is balanced, it should remain in a hori-
zontal position. If either end of the blade
moves downward, sharpen the heavy
end until the blade is balanced.

wear.
TRANSAXLE COOLING
Keep transaxle free from build-up of dirt
and chaff which can restrict cooling.
ENGINE
LUBRICATION
Only use high quality detergent oil rated
with API service classification SF, SG or
SH. Select the oil's SAE viscosity grade
according to your expected operating tem-
perature.
NOTE: Although multi-viecosity oils
(5W30, 10W30 etc.) improve starting in
cold weather, these multi-viscosity oils will
result in increased oil consumption when
used above 32°R Check your engine oil
level more frequently to avoid possible
engine damage from running low on oil.
SAE VISCOSITY GRADES
TEMPERATURE RANG°EANTICIPATED BEFORE N_ OIL C_,_*NGE
Change the oil after every 25 hours of
operation or at least once ayear if the
tractor is not used for 25 hours in one
year.
Check the crankcase oil level before start-
ing the engine and after each eight (8)
hours of operation. Tighten oil fill cap/dip-
stick securely each time you check the oil
level.
TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL
Determine temperature range expected
before oil change. All oil must meet API
service classification SF, SG or SH.

TOADJUSTCARBURETOR
NOTE:Thecarburetoron thisengineis
lowemission.Itis equippedwithan idle
fuel adjusting needle with a limiter cap,
which allows some adjustment within the
limits allowed by the cap. Do not attempt
to remove the limiter cap. The limiter cap
cannot be removed without breaking the
adjusting needle.
The carburetor has been preset at the fac-
tory and adjustment should not be neces-
sary. However, minor adjustment may be
required to compensate for differences in
fuel, temperature, altitude or load. If the
carburetor does need adjustment, proceed
as follows:
In general, turning idle mixture valve in
(clockwise) decreases the supply of fuel to
the engine giving a leaner fuel/air mixture.
Turning the idle mixture valve out
(counterclockwise) increases the supply of
fuel to the engine giving a richer fuel/air
mixture.
IMPORTANT: Damage to the needle valve
and the seat in carburetor may result if
screw is turned in too tight.
PRELIMINARY SETTING -
Air cleaner assembly must be assem-
bled to the carburetor when making car-
buretor adjustments.
Be sure the throttle control cable is
adjusted propedy (see above).
FINAL SETTING -
Start engine and allow to warm for five
minutes. Make final adjustments with
engine running and shift]motion control
lever in neutral (N) position.
Move throttle control lever to slow posi-
tion. With finger, rotate and hold throttle
lever against idle speed screw. Turn idle
speed screw to attain 1750 RPM.
While still holding throttle lever against
idle speed screw, turn idle mixture valve
full travel clockwise then counterclock-
wise until engine runs rough. Turn valve
to a point midway between those two
positions. Release throttle lever.
ACCELERATION TEST -
Move throttle control lever from slow to
fast position. If engine hesitates or dies,
tum idle mixture valve out (counter-
clockwise) 1/8 turn. Repeat test and
continue to adjust, if necessary, until
engine accelerates smoothly.
High speed stop is factory adjusted. Do
not adjust_amage may result.
IMPORTANT: Never tamper with the
engine governor, which is factory set for
proper engine speed, overspeeding the
engine above the factory high speed set-
ting can be dangerous, if you think the
engine-governed high speed needs
adjusting, contact your nearest authorized
service center, which has proper equip-
ment to make any necessary adjustments.

Immediately prepare your tractor for stor-
age at the end of the season or if the trac-
tor will not be used for 30 days or more.
_,CAUTION: Never store the tractor with
gasoline in the tank inside a building
where fumes may roach an open flame or
spark. Allow the engine to cool before stor-
ing in any enclosure.
TRACTOR
Remove mower from tractor for winter
storage. This will allow you to clean it thor-
oughly. Remove all dirt, grease, leaves,
etc. Store in a clean, dry area.
Clean entire tractor (See "CLEANING" in
the Maintenance section of this manual).
Inspect and replace belts, if necessary
(See belt replacement instructions in the
Service and Adjustments section of this
manual).
Lubricate as shown in the Maintenance
section of this manual.
Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws
are securely fastened. Inspect moving
parts for damage, breakage and wear.
Replace if necessary.
Touch up all rusted or chipped paint sur-
faces; sand lightly before painting.
BATTERY
Fully charge the battery for storage.
After a period of time in storage, battery
may require recharging.
To help prevent corrosion and power
leakage during long periods of storage,
battery cables should be disconnected
and battery cleaned thoroughly (see "TO
CLEAN BATTERY AND TERMINALS" in
the Maintenance section of this manual).
After cleaning, leave cables disconnect-
ed and place cables where they cannot
come in contact with battery terminals.
If battery is removed from tractor for
storage, do not store battery directly on
concrete or damp surfaces.
ENGINE
FUEL SYSTEM
IMPORTANT: It is important to prevent
gum deposits from forming in essential fuel
system parts such as carburetor, fuel filter,
fuel hose, or tank during storage. Also,
experience indicates that alcohol blended
fuels (called gasohol or using ethanol or
methanol) can attract moisture which
leads to separation and formation of acids
during storage. Acidic gas can damage the
fuel system of an engine while in storage.
Drain the fuel tank.
Start the engine and let it run until the
fuel lines and carburetor are empty.
Never use engine or carburetor cleaner
products in the fuel tank or permanent
damage may occur.
Use fresh fuel next season.
NOTE: Fuel stabilizer is an acceptable
alternative in minimizing the formation of
fuel gum deposits dudng storage. Add sta-
bilizer to gasoline in fuel tank or storage
container. Always follow the mix ratio
found on stabilizer container. Run engine
at least 10 minutes after adding stabilizer
to allow the stabilizer to reach the carbure-
tor. Do not drain the gas tank and carbure-
tor if using fuel stabilizer.
ENGINE OIL
Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace
with clean engine oil. (See "ENGINE" in
the Maintenance section of this manual).
CYLINDER(S)
Remove spark plug(s).
Pour one ounce of oil through spark
plug hole(s) into cylinder(s).
Turn ignition key to =START" position for
a few seconds to distribute oil.
Replace with new spark plug(s).
OTHER
Do not store gasoline from one season
to another.
Replace your gasoline can if it starts to
rust. Rust and/or dirt in your gasoline
will cause problems.
If possible, store your tractor indoors
and cover it to give protection from dust
and dirt.
Cover your tractor with a suitable pro-
tective cover that does not retain mois-
ture. Do not use plastic. Plastic cannot
breathe, which allows condensation to
form and cause your tractor to rust.
IMPORTANT: Never cover tractor while
engine and exhaust areas are still warm.

WILL DIM. AS THE ENGINE IS
SPEEDED UP, THE LIGHTS
WILL BECOME THEIR BRIGHTEST.
