OPERATION
TO MOVE FORWARD
AND BACKWARD
(See Fig. 4)
NOTE:
Zero turn mowers
are far more
manueverable
than typical
riding mowers
due
to their unique
steering
capabilities.
We recommend
that this section
be reviewed
in
it's entirety
prior to attempting
to move mower
under its own power.
Additionally,
we suggest when first operating
mower, use a reduced
throttle speed and re-
duced ground speed by NOT moving control
levers to the furthest
forward
or reverse
positions
during initial operation,
or until operator
becomes
comfortable
with controls.
We also suggest
first time users, or new users
to ZeroTurn
mowers
become familiar with the
mowers
movement
on a hard surface,
such as
concrete
or blacktop
PRIOR to attempting
to
operate
on turf. Until operator
becomes
comfort-
able with mower controls
and zero turning
capability,
they may damage
turf due to over
aggressive
maneuvers.
The direction
and speed of the mowers
move-
ments is effected
by the movement
of the control
lever(s) on each side of mower.
The left control lever controls
the left EZT (e-
Series Zeroturn
Transaxle)
wheel motor, the right
control lever controls
the right EZT wheel motor.
IMPORTANT:
CONTROL
LEVERS
RETURN
TO NEUTRALWHEN
RELEASED.
THIS MAY
CAUSE A SUDDEN
STOP OF THE MOWER.
First time users should
push mower (see TO
TRANSPORT)
to an open, flat area, with out
other persons
or vehicles/obstacles
near by.
In order to move unit under its own power, the
operator
must be in the seat, start engine
(see
START ENGINE),
adjust engine speed to idle,
disengage
park brake, do not engage (turn on)
blades at this time, rotate control
levers outward.
As long as the control levers have not been
moved forward
or backwards,
mower will
not move. Slowly move both control levers
forward slightly, this will allow mower to start
moving forward
in a straight
line. Pull back on
control levers to the neutral
position and mower
should stop moving.
Pull back slightly on control
levers, this will allow mower to start moving
backwards
or in the reverse
direction.
Push
forward on control levers to the neutral
position
and mower should
stop moving.

To turn to the right while moving
in a forward
direction,
pull the right lever back towards
the
neutral position while maintaining
the position of
the left lever, this will slow the rotation of the right
wheel and cause the machine
to turn in that
direction.
To turn to the left while moving in a forward
direction
pull the left lever back towards
the
neutral position while maintaining
the position of
the right lever, this will slow the rotation of the left
wheel and cause the machine
to turn in that
direction.
To zero turn while moving
in a forward
direc-
tion, first pull both control levers back until the
mower stops or slows dramatically.
Then by
alternating
one lever slightly to the forward
position and the other in the reverse
position.
