OPERATION
If the engine does not accept the load
from engaging
the PTO, restart the
engine and allow it to warm up for an
additional
minute or so, using the choke
if required.
TO START ENGINE (See Fig. 3)
When starting the engine for the first time or if
the engine has run out of fuel, it will take extra
cranking time to advance fuel from the tank to
the engine.
Be sure EZT (E-Series
Zeroturn
Transaxle)
bypass linkages
are in the
drive position.
Sit on the seat in the operators position,
make sure park brake lever is engaged
(brake on) position (see FIGURE 3, ITEM 8).
Check
to be sure the PTO switch
is
disengaged
or in the down position (see
FIGURE 3, ITEM 1).
Move the throttle control to the choke
position, if required (see FIGURE 3, ITEM 5).
For a warm engine start, the choke
control may not be needed
NOTE:
Before starting, read the warm and cold
starting
procedures
below.
Insert key into the ignition and turn the
key clockwise
to "START"
position
and
release the key as soon the engine
starts.
Do not run the starter
continuously
for more than 15 seconds
per minute.
If the engine does not start
after several attempts,
push the throttle
control
into the choke position,
wait a few
minutes
and try again.
If the engine still
does not start, move the throttle
control
back into the fast position
and retry.
WARM WEATHER
or WARM
ENGINE
STARTING
(50 ° F and above)
Engine may start without
the need for
choke.
Attempt
to start with throttle
control set at
the full throttle
(fast) position.
Allow engine to run at full throttle
for
approximately
one minute, before
attempting
to engage the blade PTO
switch
(blades
on) by pulling up (see
FIGURE 3, ITEM 1).
COLD WEATHER
or COLD ENGINE
STARTING
(50 ° F and below)
Slide throttle
control lever to the choke
position
by pushing
forward
and to the
right, make sure throttle
control lever is in
the full choke position.
When the engine starts,
slowly pull the
throttle
control back until the engine
begins to run smoothly.
Continue
to pull
back on the throttle
control
in small steps
allowing
the engine to accept small
changes
in speed and load, until the
throttle
control is completely
in the fast
position.
If the engine starts to run
roughly,
press the throttle
control back
forward to choke the engine for a few
seconds.
Then continue
to pull the
throttle
control back slowly to the fast
position.
This may require an engine
warm up period from several
seconds
to
several
minutes,
depending
on the
temperature.
TO STOP ENGINE
Move throttle control to slow position.
NOTE:
Failure to move the throttle
control to
slow position and allow engine to idle before
stopping
may cause engine to "backfire".
Turn ignition key to "OFF" position and
remove
key. Always
remove key when
leaving
the mower to prevent
unauthorized
use.
Never use choke to stop engine.
IMPORTANT:
LEAVINGTHE
IGNITION
SWITCH
IN ANY POSITION
OTHER
THAN
"OFF" WILL CAUSE THE BATTERY
TO BE
DISCHARGED,
(DEAD).
