Tearing and shredding turns grass brown at the edges, which slows growth and increases the chance of disease. Contact an Authorized Toro Dealer for service. Clean the cooling fins and external surfaces as necessary. It is primarily designed for cutting grass on well-maintained lawns. Slippery conditions reduce traction and could cause sliding and loss of control. Allow the engine to cool before refueling.
Never operate the lawn mower unless you install a mulch plate, discharge deflector, or grass collection system. Write the numbers in the space provided. With hundreds of pages, it will show you how to distinguish any problem from an oil change to a transmission swap and how to fix it on your own. Handle the new element carefully; do not use if the sealing surfaces are bent or damaged. If the blade is not balanced, file some metal off the end of the sail area only Figure. This will ensure that ramp angle does not exceed 15 degrees on flat ground.
If you have multiple users accessing our system from your business and you want to limit access for specific users, please notify us at the email address above with your request. Use the starter to crank the engine and distribute the oil inside the cylinder. Replace any damaged parts before use. Repair or replace any part that is worn or damaged. Towed weight must not exceed the weight of the machine, operator, and ballast. Its propose is to deliver an electric current from an ignition system to the combustion chamber of a gas fueled engine.
If you cannot mow for an extended period, first mow at a high cutting height; then mow again two days later at a lower height setting. Wheels dropping over edges can cause rollovers, which may result in serious injury, death or drowning. While the engine is running, move the motion control levers to the center, unlocked position, engage the blade control switch, and rise slightly from the seat; the engine should stop. Cut grass slightly longer than normal to ensure that the cutting height of the mower does not scalp any uneven ground. Important: Refer to your engine operator's manual for additional maintenance procedures. Note: Adjust the anti-scalp rollers so the rollers do not touch the ground in normal, flat mowing areas. Wheel Horse manufactured a wide range of lawn and garden tractors, as well as riding lawn mowers.
Run the engine to distribute the conditioned fuel through the fuel system 5 minutes. So to maintain the same cutting height, which is a good practice, mow more often in early spring. Try starting the engine; the engine should not crank. The operator may lose control of the machine and cause personal injury or damage to the machine. This empty space in the tank allows gasoline to expand. If tires lose traction, stop the machine, disengage the blades and proceed slowly off the slope. Set the wire aside so that it does not accidentally contact the spark plug.
Lift the deflector up to test that it snaps to the full down position. Safe Handling of Gasoline To avoid personal injury or property damage, use extra care when handling gasoline and other fuels. If the blade stays in a horizontal position, the blade is balanced and can be used. Ensure this is done for each lever. The machine can spin very rapidly. Do not use an alcohol based stabilizer ethanol or methanol.
The throttle control regulates the engine speed as measured in rpm revolutions per minute. This vastly improves the machine maneuverability but may require some adjustment if the operator is unfamiliar. Install the spark plug s. Repeat with the other motion control lever. Note: Check and adjust the side-to-side blade level. Normally, mow every four days. Never use gasoline that contains more than 10% ethanol by volume, such as E15 contains 15% ethanol , E20 contains 20% ethanol , or E85 contains up to 85% ethanol.
Refer to the maximum pressure suggested by the tire manufacturer on the sidewall of the caster wheel tires. Equivalent alternate brand plugs can also be used. Parts fill rates are over 90% to minimize downtime. Battery terminals or metal tools could short against metal machine components causing sparks. Ensure the ramp is long enough so that the angle with the ground does not exceed 15 degrees Figure. Squealing when the belt is rotating, blades slipping when cutting grass, frayed belt edges, burn marks, and cracks are signs of a worn mower belt.
They are flammable and the vapors are explosive. If you cannot back up the slope or if you feel uneasy on it, do not mow it. Engine exhaust contains carbon monoxide, which is an odorless, deadly poison that can kill you. The mower deck must be leveled side-to-side first then the front to rear slope can be adjusted. Also, check for loose or damaged components.
