OPERATION

&CAUTION &

Become familiar with all operating instruc- tions and safety suggestions contained 'in appli- cable Owner's Manuals before attempting to operate this equipment. Never perform any maintenance or repairs while the engine is run. ning. Never remove the discharge tube, top, or remove grass bag while the engine is running.

With a few exceptions, operation of the tractor with the rear grass bagger is similar to operation without it. Keep in mind that the tractor is made longer and wider when this attachment is installed, so be sure to avoid sharp turns in confined places. Also, do not trim with the right side of the mower, which can result in damage to the discharge elbow.

The bagger attachment is designed to operate efficiently at normal mowing speed. Due to the extra amount of power required to drive the mower, it may be necessary to reduce the ground speed of the tractor to keep the engine running smoothly, at maxi- mum governed RPM. When mowing unhill, it is recom- mended that the tractor's ground speed be reduced by at least one gear, which will help to avoid a large power drop and loss of "suction". When practical, set up a mowing pattern that will permit as much downhill mowing as possible.

&CAUTION &

Avoid stopping when mowing uph'ill. If it be. comes necessary to stop when moving uphill, place the tractor back into motion with extreme care.

REMOVAL

After the initial installation, the rear grass bagger

is removed

by the following

method:

1.

Remove grass bag, discharge tube, and top as- sembly

2.

Remove the discharge elbow and blade(s)

the

high

lift

3.

Install the "standard" mower blade(s), and the chute extension.

&CAUTION &

Never operate the mower unless the chute extension (guard) is in place, or the complete rear grass bagger is installed. The high lift blade (blades, 32 in./81 cm mower) is for use ONLY with this bagging attachment. Always install

the

"standard" mower blade (blades, 32 in./81

cm

mower) when mowing without this attach-

ment installed.

The suction action generated by the mower is cap- able of picking up grass clippings, leaves, small twigs, and other light debris from the lawn and deposit them in the grass bag. Larger twigs, branches, tree limbs, stones and other solid debris should be removed from the lawn before mowing to avoid damage to the mower or grass bagger.

During operation, a small amount of grass clippings will normally be blown out the front of the mower. When this flow increases, it usually indicates that the grass bag is full, the elbow or discharge chute is clogged, or that suction action was temporarily lost. Repeated clogging is an indication that the grass may be too long or wet. To correct, raise the cutting height of the mower, or permit the lawn to dry out as ap- plicable.

If suction action, or pick-up, should stop during use, disengage the mower and shut off the engine. Check for a full grass bag or a clogged discharge elbow, mower, or discharge tube. Always empty the grass bag when filled and after each use.
