TIPS FOR IMPROVED BAGGING
OPE RA TION:
Follow the mower operation instructions in your tractor
owner's manual.
When operating your grass catcher on a lawn where grass
and leaf bagging equipment has not been used, you are
picking up thatch and debris that has accumulated for long
periods of time. The amount collected and the total time
of operation may be greater than you will experience with
regular use of your grass catcher.
Always run throttle at full speed when bagging.
Select a gear low enough to give good mower cutting
performance, good quality cut and good bagging
per for man ce.
NOTE: It may be necessary to overlap width of cut to suit
your conditions.
If grass is extremely tall, it should be mowed twice. The
fi rst time relatively high, the second time to desired
height.
Use left hand side of mower for trimming.
Plastic trash bags can be inserted inside grass catcher
containers for ease of debris disposal. To remove the
plastic trash bags when full:
a. Disengage blades, shift into neutral, en ga ge the
par king brake and stop the engine.
b. Raise seat. Unlatch and raise cover.
c. Remove one container at a time by grasping
con tai ner handles and pulling toward the rear, off
of the tube rails.
d. With the container resting on the ground, close
and secure the top of the plastic lawn bag.
e. Tip the container on its side and slide the fi lled bag
from the container.
f. Install a new plastic lawn bag with the edges of the
bag draped over upper lip of the container.
g. Repeat for other containers.
h. Reinstall containers making sure right con tai ner
overlaps left container at center supports.
j.
Close cover and secure latches over center support
tubes.

OPERATION

Avoid cutting wet grass or in the morning while the dew
is still heavy. Grass clippings collected under these
conditions tend to be sticky and adhere to the walls of
the fl ow path causing clogging.
Your bagger is equipped with a dump bag indicator. As
the bags become full, the fl ow indicating ball will drop
down in its slot, indicating that the bags are full or the
chutes have become clogged. Care should be taken
not to damage the parts and that the ball moves freely
at the beginning of each use.
NOTE: To help prevent clogging of chutes, check/empty
bags when ball begins to drop down in the slot. Experience
will teach you the best time to empty the bags.
If the grass catcher fails to pick up cut grass or leaves,
it is an indication that clogging has occurred in the
system or that the grass catcher containers are full.
