SETUP AND ADJUSTMENTS Mower Deck Leveling Position machine on a flat surface. Preferably level concrete. Check the tire pressure in all four tires. Inflation should be 15 psi. Place 2x4’s on edge under the cutting deck from front to rear and lower the deck down onto 2x4’s. Adjust the four lower chain bolts to the center slots on the deck.
Presentation This operator’s manual describes the Husqvarna Lever-Steered Rider Mower. The mower is fitted with a liquid cooled, 3 cylinder Daihatsu diesel engine (27 HP) or Daihatsu Turbo diesel engine (34 HP). Transmission from the engine is made via two belt-driven hydraulic pumps, which in turn drive a hydraulic motor for each drive wheel.
Gauges Water temperature gauge- indicates coolant temperature and warns of overheat situation. Ammeter - indicates amount of electrical flow at the battery. Under normal operating conditions the needle will be slightly on the plus (+) side of the gauge, showing that current is being supplied to the battery.
Engaging the Mower Deck In order to engage the mower deck, pull the knob out; the mower deck is disengaged when the knob is depressed. Deck should be engaged at mid throttle and disengaged at idle speed to prolong clutch life. Parking Brake The parking brake is found on the left of the machine.
Motion Control Levers The machine’s speed and direction are continuously variable using the two motion control levers. The motion control levers can be moved forward or backward from a neutral position. Furthermore, there is a neutral position, which is locked if the motion control levers are moved outward into the neutral slots.
If the steering controls are in uneven positions when standing still, they can be adjusted using the adjustment screws, not the link system, for the controls Hydraulic Lift Switch Used to raise and lower the mower deck hydraulically. Only used on units with power deck lifts.
Refueling The machine has two fuel tanks, one on each side just behind the seat. The tanks hold 11.4 gallons, 5.7 gallons each. The engine is run on clean, fresh, diesel fuel with a minumum of 40 cetane. WARNING! Diesel fuel is highly flammable. Observe caution and fill the tanks outdoors (see the safety rules).
Manual Lifting Lever with Foot Assist for the Mower Deck The lifting lever is used to place the mower deck in the transport position or one of the 17 different cutting height positions. The cutting height is set by placing a pin in the hole for the desired cutting height and the pin is then locked on the inside (hidden in the illustration) with the supplied cotter pin.
Relays The relays and glow plug timer are located in a holder to the right side of the seat. Tracking The tracking knob is located in front of the left con- trol lever. Rotating this knob allows fine tuning ad- justments so that the machine tracks straight with the drive levers in the full forward position.
Running Before Starting • Read the sections Safety Instructions and Presentation before starting the machine. • Perform the daily maintenance before starting (see Maintenance Schedule Maintenance section). • Check that there is sufficient fuel in the fuel tanks. • Adjust the seat to the desired position. The following conditions must be fulfilled before the engine can be started: •...
5. Move the steering controls outward to the locked (outer) neutral position. 6. Move the throttle to the middle position. OPERATION Steering controls in the outward, locked neutral position Set the throttle STEERINGPOSITIONS BAM - 2...
7. Open the fuel switch for the selected fuel tank. 8. Turn the ignition key to the run position to activate the glow plug. Wait till the light goes out, then turn key to start position. IMPORTANT INFORMATION Wait till the glow plug light goes out or dam- age could result to the engine.
10. Set the desired engine speed with the throttle. Allow the engine to run at a moderate speed, “half throttle”, for 1 minute before increasing the engine speed. Use full throttle when mowing. WARNING! Never run the engine indoors, in enclosed or poorly ventilated spaces.
3. Select the cutting height by placing the pin in one of the holes. Lock the pin on the inside with the cotter pin. 4. Press in the stop handle, counter hold, and carefully move the lifting lever forward from the transport position toward the pin on manual units.
disengaged before the motion control levers can be moved from the neutral slots or the engine will kill. By moving the levers an equal amount forward or back the machine will move in a straight line in that direction. Movement of either lever forward will cause the right or left wheel to rotate in a forward direction.
dense, the driving speed can be increased without noticeably depreciating the mowing result. • The finest lawns are obtained by mowing often. The mowing becomes more even and the grass clippings more evenly distributed over the mown area. The total time taken is not increased as a higher driving speed can be used without poorer mowing results.
Stopping the Engine Allow the engine to idle a minute in order to attain normal operating temperature before stopping it if it has been worked hard. Avoid idling the engine for long periods. 1. Disengage the mower deck by depressing the control.
Maintenance Maintenance Schedule The following is a list of maintenance procedures that must be performed on the machine. For those points not described in this manual, visit an authorized service workshop. An annual service carried out by an authorized service workshop is recommended in order to maintain your machine in the best possible condition and to ensure safe operation.
Maintenance Lubricate the steering control shafts Lubricate the mower deck’s struts Lubricate the mower deck’s cutting height adjuster Check/adjust the cutting height Change inner (safety) air filter element Clean the air cleaner’s filter cartridge (paper filter) Change the engine oil Change the hydraulic oil filter (every 300 hours) Replace the engine oil filter Replace the fuel filter (800 hours)
Checking the Safety System The machine is equipped with a safety system that prevents starting or driving under the following conditions. The engine can only be started when: 1. The mower deck is disengaged. 2. The motion control levers are in the outer, locked neutral position.
Checking the Engine’s Cooling Air Intake Check that the engine’s cooling air intake is free from leaves, grass, and dirt. If the cooling air intake is clogged, engine cooling deteriorates, which can lead to engine damage. The radiator screen can be removed and cleaned Checking and Adjusting the Throttle Cable Check that the engine responds to throttle...
Replacing the Air Filter If the engine seems weak or runs unevenly and the dust load indicator has turned red the air filter may be clogged. If run with a clogged air filter, disruption of operation can occur. Cleaning/replacing the air filter is carried out as follows Only do so when the dust indicator is red.
Replacing the Fuel Filter The fuel filter is located with the priming pump. Replace the fuel filter every 800 hours (once per season) or more regularly if it becomes clogged. Replace the filter as follows: Unscrew fuel filter from pump and replace. Every 50 hours check for water in the fuel filter.
When refilling the system, it is important that all trapped air be purged. The following procedure will help to insure this: 1. Make sure the engine is level. Fill the overflow reservoir up to the MAX mark with coolant mixture. 2.
contact between brake shoes and drum can be felt. Hold in this position. 4. Rotate clevis until clevis pin can just be inserted thru clevis and brake lever with pin resting against rear of the hole in brake lever. 5. Remove clevis pin and rotate clevis two (2) full turns toward rear to allow correct clearance between brake shoes and drum.
Checking the Hydraulic System Total System Capacity...1.125 gal. To check the hydraulic fluid level, locate the hydraulic reservoir under the seat. Remove cap and check level. Fill to 1/4" from top of tank WARNING! If a leak is suspected, use a piece of cardboard or wood, NOT your hands.
Caster Wheels Check every 200 hours. Lift front of unit off of ground so caster wheels can rotate freely. Tighten caster bolt then back off 1/2 turn. Check that wheel rotates freely. If wheel does not rotate freely back the caster bolt off in 1/4 turn increments until wheel rotates freely.
MAINTENANCE Begin with either side and put the motion control lever into the neutral position. Adjust the motion control linkage by rotating the double nuts (D) in the proper direction until the wheel stops rotating. See illustration. Move the motion control lever forward then into the neutral position and place it into the neutral slot.
Lubrication Lubrication Schedule Lubrication schedule General Remove the ignition key to prevent unintentional movements during lubrication. When lubricating with an oil can, it should be filled with engine oil. When lubricating with grease, unless otherwise stated, a lithium based grease or another chassis or ball bearing grease, offering good corrosion protection should be used.
Lubricating the Cables If possible, grease both ends of the cable and move the controls to end stop positions when lubricating. Refit the rubber covers on the cable after lubrication. Cables with sheaths will bind if they are not lubricated regularly.
3. Engine Oil Changing the Engine Oil Change the engine oil and filter for the first time after 50 hours of operation. Thereafter, the oil should be changed every 150 hours and the filter every other oil change. WARNING! Engine oil can be very hot if it is drained directly after stopping the engine.
The oil level should be between the markings on the dipstick. If the level is approaching the “ADD” mark, add the oil to the “FULL” mark on the dipstick. Never fill above the “FULL” mark. The oil is topped off through the dipstick hole. Use engine oil SAE 30 or SAE 10W-30 or, alternately, 10W/40, class CF - 4, CI - 4 (over 0 °C/+32 °F).
5. Front Wheel Mount Lubricate with a grease gun, one zerk for each wheel mount, use 10 pumps of the grease gun at the recommended service intervals. Use only good quality lithium based grease. Grease from well-known brand names (petrochemical companies, etc.) usually maintains a good quality.
9. Steering Control Shafts Tip the driver’s seat. Lubricate with a grease gun, one zerk for each steering control shaft, until the grease is forced out. Use only good quality lithium based grease. Grease from well-known brand names (petrochemical companies, etc.) usually maintains a good quality.
12. Belt Adjuster, Hydraulic Pumps Lubricate using a grease gun, one zerk, until the grease squeezes out. Use only good quality lithium based grease. Grease from well-known brand names (petrochemical companies, etc.) usually maintains a good quality. IMPORTANT INFORMATION Be careful and remove excess lubricant so that is does not come into contact with belts or belt pulley drive surfaces.
