The hourmeter (Figure 3) measures the number of hours
the key has been in the RUN position. The hourmeter
will flash an initial oil change indicator at 5 hours, and a
every 50 hours. These reminders
display for approximately two hours and will automatically
NOTE: The hourmeter will register the passage of time
when the key is in the RUN position, even if the engine
is not running. The hourmeter has a self contained power
source so the total hours are always visible.

What is Advanced
Advanced Traction Control (ATC) is an exclusive feature
of our transmissions that provides improved traction. ATC
applies a preset amount of torque to both rear wheels even
if one starts slipping (a transmission without ATC will lose
traction completely if one rear wheel starts slipping). This
preset torque is just enough to provide additional traction,
and still allow the wheels to turn at different speeds in a tight
turn without damaging the lawn.
What to Expect
from Your ATC Tractor
For the most part, while using your tractor you will
not notice ATC working, and you will simply become
accustomed to increased traction an ATC transmission
Under certain circumstances the ATC system limit can
be exceeded, and one of the rear wheels may slip (for
instance if trying to turn up a hill while accelerating). This
is normal. If you start to lose traction, do not speed up.
Instead, slow to a stop, straighten the steering wheel,
and slowly accelerate. Stopping the tractor allows the
transmission to regain more traction.
