OPERATION
l
Be sure to fasten
the seat belt whenever
driving
the tractor
with
the
Rollover
Protective
Structure
(ROPS)
attached.
Use of either
device
(seat belt or ROPS) without
the other will increase
the chance
of injury
in a rollover.
l
Adjust
the seat belt so that it is snug.
o Be sure that the main Transmission
lever is in "Neutral"
and the front
and rear P.T.O.
levers
are in the "OFF"
position
before
starting
the
engine.
l
Operate
the tractor
at low speed until you become
familiar
with all of its
operating
characteristics
and controls.
l
Do not operate
the tractor
or its attachments
without
ensuring
the area
in front
and behind
is clear of people
and pets.
l
Sudden
stops of the tractor
while
driving
at high speed or sudden
start-
up with
the steering
wheels
turned
fully
in one direction,
could
cause
the tractor
to overturn.
l
This tractor
utilizes
Four Wheel
Steering
(4WS)
for a tighter
turning
cir-
cle
and
greater
mobility
than
tractors
with
conventional
steering.
However,
the feel of 4WS is slightly
different
from other tractors.
Prac-
tice driving
in a wide,
safe area.
l
Never
operate
the tractor
or its attachments
when
visibility
is diminish-
ed by darkness
or bad
weather;
your
ability
to see obstacles
will
become
impaired.
l
Watch
out for rocks,
roots,
holes and other
obstacles
that may cause
the Tractor
to overturn.
l
This tractor
and its attachments
are intended
for use on relatively
flat
terrain.
l
It is illegal
to operate
this tractor
on public
streets,
roads, or highways.
l
It is legal in some areas to operate
a tractor
without
a U.S.D.A.
qualified
spark
arrester.
Check
local laws
and regulations
before
operating.
An
optional
spark arrester
for this product
is available
from your authorised
Honda
tractor
dealer.
