STEERING
STEERING SYSTEM, DASH, FENDER AND MOWER NOT SHOWN
Fig. 31
Keep finished surfaces and wheels free of all gasoline,
oil, etc.
Protect painted surfaces with automotive type wax.
Except for the washout
port (if equipped),
we do not
recommend
using a garden hose or pressure washer to
clean the outside of your tractor unless the engine and
transmission
are covered to keep water out. Water in
engine or transmission will shorten the useful life of your
tractor.
Use compressed air or a leaf blower to remove
grass, leaves and trash from outside tractor and mower.
DECK WASHOUT
PORT (See Fig. 32)
Your tractor's deck is equipped with a washout port as part
of its deck wash system. It should be utilized after each use.
1. Drive the tractor to a level, clear spot on your lawn, near
enough to a water spigot for your garden hose to reach.
IMPORTANT: Make certain the tractor's discharge chute is
directed AWAY from your house, garage, parked cars, etc.
Remove bagger chute or mulch cover if attached.
2. Make sure the attachment
clutch control is in the
"DISENGAGED"
position, set the parking brake, and
stop the engine.
3. Thread the nozzle adapter (packaged with your tractor's
Operator's Manual) onto the end of your garden hose.
4. Pull backthe lock collar of the nozzle adapter and push
the adapter onto the deck washout port at the left end
of the mower deck. Release the lock collar to lock the
adapter on the nozzle.

6. While sitting in the operator's position on the tractor,
re-start the engine and place the throttle lever in the
Fast ",_"
position.
IMPORTANT: Recheck the area to ensure the area isclear.
Ensure no children are in the area while cleaning the deck.
7. Move the tractor's attachment
clutch control to the
"ENGAGED" position. Remain in the operator's position
with the cutting deck engaged until the deck is cleaned.
8. Move the tractor's attachment
clutch control to the
"DISENGAGED"
position. Turn the ignition key to the
STOP position to turn the tractor's engine off. Turn the
water off.
9. Pull back the lock collar of the nozzle adapter to discon-
nect the adapter from the nozzle washout port.
10. Move the tractor to a dry area, preferably a concrete or
paved area. Place the attachment clutch control in the
"ENGAGED" position to remove excess water and to
help dry before putting the tractor away.
