PF 21 AWD. The machines are equipped with a four-stroke V- Twin engine from Kawasaki. The machines are equipped with power steering and hydraulic lifts. PR 17 AWD and PF 21 AWD also have all wheel drive. The power transmission from the engine is handled by a hydrostatic gearbox, which allows variable variation of the speed by using the pedals.
PR 17 and PR 17 AWD can be equipped with three different cutting units. Combi 94, Combi 103, Combi 112 PF 21 and PF 21 AWD can be equipped with two different cutting units. Combi 112 and Combi 122 The Combi-unit, equipped with a BioClip-plug, ﬁnely chops the cuttings to fertiliser.
Clutch control PR 17 AWD and PF 21 AWD PR 17 AWD and PF 21 AWD have one control for the front axle and one control for the rear axle. IMPORTANT! Always drive the machine with both clutch controls pressed in.
Start the engine 1 Make sure that the clutch control is depressed. PR 17 AWD and PF 21 AWD have one control for the front axle and one control for the rear axle. 2 Lift up the cutting unit by pulling the lever backwards to locked position (transport position) and apply the parking brake.
4 If the engine is cold move the choke lever backwards to its end position. 5 Turn the ignition key to the start position. 6 When the engine starts release the ignition key immediately back to neutral position. IMPORTANT INFORMATION Do not run the starter for more than about 5 seconds at a time.

Cleaning Clean the machine directly after use. It is much easier to wash off grass cuttings before they dry. Oily dirt can be removed using a cold degreasing agent. Spray on a thin layer. Rinse at normal water pressure. Do not direct the jet towards electrical components or bearings.
WARNING! A poorly adjusted parking brake can result in reduced braking ability. Adjusting the parking brake PR 17 AWD, PF 21 AWD Check that the parking brake is adjusted correctly by placing the machine on a slope with the front and rear axles disengaged.
3 Remove the left-hand wing cover. 4 Loosen the locking nuts. 5 Adjust the play between the casing and the adjustment screw to 1 mm (0.040") when one pulls the casing. This gives a play on the pedal of approximately 40 mm. 6 Tighten the nuts carefully to prevent damaging the adjuster screw.
Never brush the dirt away. Replace the air ﬁlter if it is very dirty. PF 21 and PF 21 AWD have an additional ﬁlter located behind the ﬁlter cartridge. Clean the ﬁlter by knocking it with care against a hard surface. Do not use compressed air for this ﬁlter.
Ignition system The engine is equipped with an electronic ignition system. Only the spark plug requires maintenance. For recommended spark plug, see Technical data. IMPORTANT INFORMATION Fitting the wrong spark plug type can damage the engine. Replacing the spark plug 1 Remove the ignition cable shoe and clean around the spark plug.
Check the safety system The machine is equipped with a safety system that prevents starting or driving under the following conditions. The engine should only be possible to start when the cutting unit is in its raised position and the parking brake is applied. The driver does not need to be seated in the driver’s seat.
Replacing the light bulbs For information about the bulb type, see Technical Data. 1 Unscrew the two screws holding the cover on the power servo housing. 2 Lift up the cover and turn it around the steering shaft. 3 Unscrew the two screws holding the lamp insert. 4 Lift out the lamp insert.

2 PF 21 and PF 21 AWD If PF 21 or PF 21 AWD is to be used with an accessory or with the cutting unit CombiTurf 112, the belt should be pulled on the outside of the outer runner wheel, otherwise the belt will be too long.
7 Fit the drive belt around the drive wheels of the cutting unit. Hook up the height adjustment strut. 8 Secure the collet spring. Fit the front cover. Removing the cutting unit WARNING! Wear protective glasses when dismantling the cutting unit. The spring which tensions up the belt may break and cause personal injury.
Adjusting the parallelism of the cutting unit 1 Remove the front hood and right-hand fender. 2 Undo the nuts on the lift strut. 3 Screw out (extend) the stay to raise the rear edge of the cover. Screw in (shorten) the stay to lower the rear edge of the cover.
Service position for the cutting unit The cutting head can be placed in the service position to provide easy access for cleaning, repairs and servicing. In the service position the cutting unit is raised and locked in the vertical position. Placing in the service position 1 Position the machine on ﬂat ground.
Checking the blades To achieve the best mowing results it is important that the blades are undamaged and well-sharpened. Check that the blades’ attachment screws are tight. IMPORTANT INFORMATION Replacing or sharpening the blades should be conducted by an authorised service workshop.
