Engine exhaust fumes contain carbon monoxide and can cause serious illness or death. Move the vehicle to an outside area before running the engine. DO NOT run an engine in an enclosed area without adequate ventilation.
Connect a pipe extension to the engine exhaust pipe to direct the exhaust fumes out of the area. Allow fresh outside air into the work area to clear the exhaust fumes out. Push down the reverse travel pedal (B). To stop travel: Push down brake pedal (C). Travel pedals will return to the neutral position.
Using Reverse Implement Option c CAUTION: Avoid injury! Rotating blades are dangerous. Children or bystanders may be injured by runover and rotating blades. Before backing up, carefully check the area around the machine.
NOTE: Operating the mower while backing up is strongly discouraged. The Reverse Implement Option should be used ONLY when operating another attachment or when the operator deems it necessary to reposition the machine with the mower engaged.
Stop forward travel. Look behind the vehicle to be sure there are no bystanders. Lift and hold the PTO knob (A) up past the PTO engagement position while depressing reverse foot pedal slightly. NOTE: If the engine and attachment stop while repositioning the machine, return PTO knob to the off position. Start engine and engage attachment. Begin again with Step 2.
As the machine begins to move rearward, release the PTO knob and reposition the machine. Resume forward travel. The attachment should continue operating.
Repeat procedure to position the machine again. Using Mower Lift Lever NOTE: Make sure the tension on the lift assist spring is properly adjusted to support the weight of the mower deck installed. Refer to your Mower Deck Operator's Manual. MOWING (FORWARD) POSITION Use when mowing in extremely rough terrain. Mower is locked in lowest position. Engage PTO switch (B): Pull PTO switch UP to position ( I).
Lift PTO switch fully to position ( to engage before the tractor is in reverse. To Disengage PTO: Push PTO switch (B) DOWN to position ( O).
Pushing Machine c CAUTION: Avoid injury! With the free-wheeling valve open, the machine will have unrestricted motion. The machine may free-wheel out of control if the free-wheeling valve is opened with the machine on an incline. Park the machine on a level surface before opening the free-wheeling valve. IMPORTANT: Avoid damage! Transmission damage may occur if the machine is moved or towed incorrectly: Move unit by hand only. DO NOT use another vehicle to move unit.
DO NOT tow unit. Drive forward onto heavy-duty trailer. Lower mower to trailer deck. Lock park brake. Fasten lawn tractor to trailer with heavy-duty straps, chains, or cables. Both front and rear straps must be directed down and outward from tractor. Strap down hood.
Using Wheel Weights c CAUTION: Avoid injury! The machine may become unstable when operating on slopes and/or with some attachments. Use wheel weights to improve stability when operating on slopes or using attachments. NOTE: Remove wheel weights when not required.
Using front weights: Install front wheel weights for better stability and steering control when you use equipment such as the rear-mounted grass bagger. Using rear weights: Order the 'Rear Weight Bracket Kit' to install rear suitcase weights. Use of these weights is recommended when you use equipment such as a snowthrower. Installing Tire Chains. Tie excess rim chain links (G) back to the rim chain.
Drive forward on chains 9-12 m (30-40 ft.) and recheck for tightness. Adjust as necessary. Mowing Tips The following recommendations will produce the best lawn cut quality and appearance: Keep mower blades sharp. Dull blades will tear grass; tips of grass will then turn brown. Cutting grass too short may kill grass and let weeds grow easily. The suggested finished cut height range is 44 to 70 mm (1.75 to 2.75 in.). Adjust cutting height to remove only 1/3 of the grass at a time.
When using the Freedom42 Mulching Mower: Shorter cut heights will provide better cut quality, but may leave noticeable clippings. Higher cut heights will reduce clippings, but cut quality may decline. Do not mow wet grass. Wet cutting conditions will not adversely affect the cutting performance of the Freedom42 Mulching Mower. Mow grass often. Short grass clippings will decay quickly. Mow with engine at full throttle.
Adjust travel speed to match mowing conditions: Travel at SLOW speed when you mow thick, tall grass, make sharp turns or trim around objects. Travel at MODERATE speed when you mow thin grass. Use a different mowing pattern each time you mow.

Other primary functions of the urinary system are maintaining the body’s relative state of homeostasis by keeping the levels of electrolytes in balance, producing hormones that regulate blood pressure, producing red blood cells, and helping to keep bones healthy by maintaining the right amounts of phosphorous and calcium within the body. Every day this system produces at least 1 to 2 quarts of urine. Human skeleton study guide. • Provides anatomical information about each organ within the system.
Overlap mowing paths 50 to 100 mm (2 to 4 in.). Drive over ridges and through shallow ditches straight-on, not at an angle.
