TIPS FOR IMPROVED BAGGING OPERATION:
Follow the mower operation instructions in you
mower operator's manual.
When operating your grass catcher on a lawn
where grass and leaf bagging equipment has not
been used, you are picking up thatch and debris
that has accumulated for long periods of time. The
amount collected and the total time of operation
may be greater than you will experience with regu-
lar use of your grass catcher.
Always run throttle at full speed when bagging.
Select a speed low enough to give good mower
cutting performance, good quality cut and good
NOTE: It may be necessary to overlap width of
cut to suit your conditions.
If grass is extremely tall, it should be mowed
twice. The first time relatively high, the second
time to desired height.
Use left hand side of mower for trimming.
Plastic trash bags (3.0 mil, 30 gallon) can be
inserted inside grass catcher containers for
ease of debris disposal. To remove the plastic
trash bags when full:
a. Disengage blades, shift into neutral, en-
gage the parking brake and stop the en-
b. Unlatch and raise cover.
c. Remove one container at a time by grasp-
ing container handles and pulling toward
the rear, off of the tube rails.
d. With the container resting on the ground,
close and secure the top of the plastic lawn
e. Tip the container on its side and slide the
filled bag from the container.
Install a new plastic lawn bag with the
edges of the bag draped over upper lip of
the Container (for replacement bags refer
to REPLACEMENT PARTS).
g. Repeat for other container.
h. Reinstall containers making sure right con-
tainer overlaps left container at center sup-
Close cover and secure latches over cen-
ter support tubes.
Avoid cutting wet grass or in the morning while
the dew is still heavy. Grass clippings collected
under these conditions tend to be sticky and
adhere to the walls of the flow path causing
If the grass catcher fails to pick up cut grass or
leaves, it is an indication that clogging has oc-
curred in the system or that the grass catcher
containers are full.
a. Disengage blades, place motion control
levers in neutral position.
- Unlatch and raise cover.
- Slide out containers and dispose of clippings.
- Replace containers, close cover, and latch.
b. Unlatch chutes and check for clogging.
- Remove all debris in chute.
- Reassemble and latch chutes.

catcher partially installed.

fore leaving mower seat to empty con-
tainers, unclogging chutes, etc.
