MOWING
TIPS
• Tire chains
cannot
be used when
the
mower
housing
is attached
to tractor.
• Mower
should
be properly
leveled
for
best mowing
performance.
See "TO
LEVEL
MOWER
HOUSING"
in the
Service
and Adjustments
section
of this
manual.
• The left hand side of mower
should
be
used for trimming.
• Drive so that clippings
are discharged
onto the area that has already
been
cut.
Have the cut area to the right of
the tractor.
This will result in a more
even distribution
of clippings
and more
uniform
cutting.
• When
mowing
large areas,
start by
turning
to the right so that clippings
will
discharge
away from shrubs,
fences,
driveways,
etc.
After one or two rounds,
mow in the opposite
direction
making
left hand turns until finished.
f
• If grass is extremely
tall, it should
be
mowed
twice to reduce
load and pos-
sible fire hazard
from dried clippings.
Make first cut relatively
high; the second
to the desired
height.
• Do not mow grass when
it is wet.
Wet grass will plug mower
and leave
undesirable
clumps.
Allow grass to dry
before
mowing.
• Always
operate
engine
at full throttle
when
mowing
to assure
better mowing
performance
and proper
discharge
of
material.
Regulate
ground
speed
by
selecting
a low enough
speed to give
the mower cutting
performance
as well
as the quality
of cut desired.
• When
operating
attachments,
select
a
ground
speed
that will suit the terrain
and give best performance
of the at-
tachment
being
used.
