The operation
of any tractor
can
result in foreign
objects
thrown
into the
eyes, which can result in severe eye damage.
Always
wear safety glasses
or eye shields
while operating
your tractor
or performing
any adjustments
or repairs.
We recommend
standard
safety
glasses
or a wide vision
safety
mask worn
over spectacles.
HOW
TO USE
YOUR
TRACTOR
TO SET PARKING
BRAKE
Your tractor
is equipped
with an operator
presence
sensing
switch.
When
engine
is running,
any attempt
by the operator
to leave the seat without
first setting
the
parking
brake will shut off the engine.
1.
Depress
clutch/brake
pedal (B) all the
way down and hold.
2.
Pull parking
brake lever (C) up and
hold, release
pressure
from clutch/
brake pedal (B), then release
park-
ing brake lever.
Pedal should
remain
in brake position.
Make sure parking
brake will hold tractor

"backfire".
• Turn ignition
key (F) to "STOP"
position
and remove

to prevent
unau-
thorized
use.
• Never use choke
(N) to stop engine.
IMPORTANT:
Leaving
the ignition
switch
in any position
other than "STOP"
will
cause the battery
to discharge
and go
dead.
NOTE:
Under
certain
conditions
when
tractor
is standing
idle with the engine
run-
ning, hot engine
exhaust
gases
may cause

this pos-
sibility,
always
stop engine
when stopping

on grass areas.
_IbOAUTION:

performance.
