Failure to obey these rules could result in loss of control of unit, severe personal injury or death to you, or bystanders, or damage to property or equipment. This mow- ing deck is capable of amputating hands and feet and throwing objects.
BEFORE OPERATION Clear the lawn of all sticks, stones, wire and other debris which may be caught or thrown by the mower blades. Check grass condition. If wet, wait until later in the day. If grass is wet, as the grass catcher is likely to become plugged.
Initial Setup & Assembly STEP-BY-STEP INITIAL ASSEMBLY Remove Deflector & Cover 1. Remove the mower deck from the tractor. Refer to the tractor operator’s manual for instructions. 2. Remove the deflector (A, Figure 1) by removing car- riage bolts, lockwashers, and nuts securing the spring (B) and rod (D).
Assemble & Install New Belt Cover 1. Assemble the pulley cover (G, Figure 4) to the new belt cover. Using 10-32 x 3/8 machine screws and #10-32 nut-washer assemblies. The screws must be inserted from inside the belt cover so that nuts (D) are outside.
Initial Setup & Assembly Assemble & Install Deflector 1. The two holes for mounting the deflector must be drilled out. Turn the deflector over, and notice that these two holes are started. Finishing drilling the two 11/32 inch holes (See Figure 5). 2.
Assemble Turbo 1. Assemble the turbo. Install the bracket (A, Figure 6) and upstop (B) as follows: NOTE: Upstop (B. Figure 6) has a short and a long leg. The difference is the thickness of bracket (A). Place long leg on housing and short leg on top of bracket. Washer(s) may need to be added under each leg of upstop if deflector contacts housing.
Attaching & Removing the Turbo Vacuum Collector ATTACHING THE TURBO 1. Lift up the deflector. 2. Engage the stone guard hook at the bottom of the turbo as shown in Figure 9. 3. Slide turbo assembly as far rearward as possible so that the front turbo edge is tight against the front mower deck edge.
ADJUSTMENTS Pulley Adjustments If the mower deck belt has stretched over time, the stacked idler pulley (B, Figure 11) may need to be moved to the outer hole in the mower deck to take up the belt slack. If the mower idler pulley (B) is mounted in the outer hole in the deck, then the turbo idler pulley (C) should be as far toward the front as the slot will allow.
