OPERATION
CUTTING
1. Place the discharge chute in the down position or
correctly fit a grass collector or mulcher plate.
2.
Sit in the seat.
3.
Start the engine.
4. Turn the blades on by pulling up on the PTO
switch.
Do not start the blades at full throttle.
Instead, use the slowest throttle setting that will al-
low the engine to pick up the blade load to reduce
the wear on the belts and electric clutch.
5. After the blades are rotating, set the throttle to
maximum.
Use the traction levers to obtain the
required cutting speed, to steer around obstacles
and to turn at the end of a cut.
CUTTING
TiPS
When mowing large areas, start by turning to the
right so that clippings will be discharged away
from shrubs, fences, driveways, etc. After two or
three rounds, mow in the opposite direction, left
hand turns, until finished.
If grass is extremely tall, it should be mowed
twice, the first cut relatively high, the second cut to
the desired height.
Use the left side of the mower for trimming.
Choose cutting directions so that clippings are
thrown onto areas that already have been cut.
This method results in the most even distribution
of clippings and more uniform, better appearing
cuts.
Use a different mowing pattern each time where
possible. This helps prevent rutting and leads
to a more uniform cut by keeping the grass from
always laying the same way.
