TrACTOr SeT-Up
Moving The Tractor Manually
Your tractor's transmission is equipped with a hydrostatic relief valve
for occasions when it is necessary to move the tractor manually. Open-
ing this valve permits the fluid in the transmission to bypass its normal
route, allowing the rear tires to "freewheel." To open the hydrostatic
relief valve, proceed as follows:
1.
Locate the hydrostatic bypass rod in the rear of the tractor. See
Figure 1.
2.
Pull the hydrostatic bypass rod outward, then down, to lock it in
place.
NOTE: The transmission will NOT engage when the hydrostatic
bypass rod is pulled out. Return the rod to its normal position prior to
operating the tractor.
CAUTION
Never attempt to move the tractor manually without first opening the
hydrostatic relief valve. Doing so will result in serious damage to the
tractor's transmission.

Shipping Brace removal
Make sure the lawn tractor's engine is off, set the parking brake and
remove the ignition key before removing the shipping brace.
1.
Locate the shipping brace, if present, and warning tag found on
the right side of the cutting deck. See Figure 2.
2.
While holding the discharge chute cover with your left hand,
remove the shipping brace with your right hand by grasping it
between your thumb and index finger and rotating it clockwise.
The shipping brace is used for packaging purposes only. Remove
and discard the shipping brace before operating your lawn tractor.
The mowing deck is capable of throwing objects. Operating the riding
mower without the discharge cover in the proper operating position
could result in serious personal injury and/or property damage.
