ENGINE SPEED: Controlled by throttle lever on the upper handle. Under normal conditions, operate at the minimum throttle speed to accomplish your task.

NOTE: The unit ground speed varies with the engine speed.

FUEL VALVE: Move fuel valve to "ON" position Honda: Located below the air cleaner on the engine. Briggs: Located on face of the engine.

ENGINE STOP SWITCH: Move to "ON" position Honda only: Located on side of engine. During normal operation use the remote stop switch on the operators handle.

CHOKE: Engage the choke when starting a cold engine. Honda: Located below the air cleaner on the engine. Briggs: Located on top of the air cleaner on the engine.

THROTTLE: Move the throttle control on the upper handle to fast position. Pull starting rope to start engine.

IF YOUR UNIT FAILS TO START:

See Troubleshooting on page 12.

NOTE: Honda engines are equiped with a low oil sensor to prevent engine damage. When it senses a low oil condition (i.e. unit is operating or sitting on a steep slope) the engine shuts down. The low oil condition must be corrected before the engine can be restarted. See the engine owners manual for more information.

TINES RAISING/LOWERING

The tines are raised or lowered into the ground by operating the tine engagement lever on the upper handle. Tine penetration is very dependent on surface preparation. READ the operation section before aerating.

RUNNING

AERATING OPERATION

DO NOTUse this machine on any surface other than a lawn or similar area.

DO NOTUse this machine on slopes in excess of 19°.

DO NOTAllow persons unfamiliar with this equipment to operate it. DO NOTAllow children to operate this equipment.

MOW: Mow the lawn to it's normal cut height.

WATER: For the best performance and maximum tine penetration the lawn should be thoroughly watered the day before aeration.

INSPECT lawn before begining work. Remove all rocks, wire, string, or other objects that can present a hazard during work prior to starting.

IDENTIFY and mark all fixed objects to be avoided during work, such as sprinkler heads, water valves, buried cables, or clothes line anchors, etc.

START ENGINE: See above.

SET SPEED: The ground speed of your aerator varies with the engine speed. Set the engine at approximately half throttle to start. Speed may be increased based on the turf conditions (i.e. large flat areas) and operator experience. Speed should be lowered when operating under adverse turf conditions (i.e. fenced areas, hills, or slopes).

MOVE: Be sure the tine engagement control is in the up position (tines out of the ground) and engage the wheel drive by squeezing the operators clutch bail against the handle. Transport the aerator to the work area.

16 OPERATIONcontinued

AERATOR OPERATION CON'T

ENGAGE TINES: With the aerator in the work area, release the clutch bail and push forward on the tine engagement lever, lowering the tines into the dirt.

AERATE: Engage the operators clutch bail by pushing it forward to the handle, and start aerating.

NOTE: For maximum tine penetration apply downward pressure on the handle.

TURNING: At the end of an aerating run, release the clutch bail and pull back on the tine engagement control to lift the tines out of the ground. Using the handle swivel the rear of the unit to bring it around and line up for the next pass.

NOTE: Engage the clutch bail to use the front wheel drive to aid in turning the unit.

TRANSPORT: Be sure to lift the tine engagement lever (tine out of the ground) before transporting away from the work area.

HANDLING & TRANSPORTING

CAUTION: This unit is heavy. It requires at least two people to lift it.

REMOVE: The aerator is equiped with a removable rear weight. Remove the weight when loading and unloading the unit. The weight can be removed by rotating the locking tabs on the weight mounting pins and lifting it straight up. See Fig. 1 below.

NOTE: The removable weight is also heavy and should handled carefully and secured in place during transport.

LIFTING: The aerator is equiped with lift handles. After removing the weight lift the unit with two people one on each side of the unit. Grip the unit at the points marked "LIFT HERE" when lifting. Lift using your legs and not your back. See Fig. 2

USING RAMPS: Use ramps that are of adequate strength for a unit of this weight. When loading the aerator using ramps be sure the ramp is not too steep and that the surface of the ramp provides good traction.

Fig. 1

Hints!

AERATING TIPS

 

WATER: For the best performance and maximum tine penetration the lawn should be thoroughly watered the day before aeration.

SLOPES: Do not operate the aerator on steep slopes. Use extreme caution when operating on any sloped surface. For lesser sloped areas operate the unit, traversing up and down at a 45 degree angle to the slope rather than straight across. Extended operation on steep slopes can cause engine damage.

NOTE: DO NOT release the operators clutch bail when operating on a slope. This will allow the unit to free wheel and allow the unit to roll down the slope.

NOTE: Honda engines are equiped with a low oil sensor to prevent engine damage. When it senses a low oil condition (i.e. unit is operating or sitting on a steep slope) the engine shuts down. The low oil condition must be corrected before the engine can be restarted. See the engine owners manual for more information.

TINE PENETRATION: Maximum tine penetration is achieved by applying downward pressure on the handle during operation.

TURNING: At the end of a pass the tines can be lifted out of the ground to turn by lifting straight up on the operators handle.

2.Loosen the handle mounting bolts (item 51), one on each side, (See Fig. 3) and push the handle out and away from the lower handle mounting studs.

3.The handle is now free to rotate. Adjust the handle to the desired height. The BOTTOM handle mounting stud coresponds with the highest handle position. The TOP handle mounting stud coresponds with the lowest handle mounting position.

4.Completely tighten the handle mounting bolts (item 51), and replace the lock nuts (item 50) to secure the handle in place.

FOLDING HANDLE

This unit is equipped with a folding upper handle for easier storage. TO FOLD THE HANDLE:

1.Remove the lock nuts that secure the handle, one on each side, to the lower handle mounting studs. See Fig. 1

2.Remove the hair pins that secure the tine lift rods, one on each side, to the tine lift links. See Fig. 2

3.Slide the rods out of the lift links and replace the pins in the holes they were removed from for storage.

4.Rotate the lift rods down and back until they and hanging down and to the rear of the unit.

5.Loosen the handle mounting bolts, one on each side, (Fig. 3) and push the handle out and away from the lower handle mounting studs.

6.The handle is now free to rotate. Rotate it up and toward the front of the unit while holding the tine engagement control lever against the rear of the upper handle. The handle will rotate into a position with the top of the handle hooking over the front bumper of the unit.

NOTE: Replace the lock nuts (item 50) on the lower handle mounting studs for storage.

UNIT STORAGE

Never store engine indoors or in enclosed poorly ventilated areas with fuel in tank, where fuel fumes may reach an open flame, spark or pilot light, as on a furnace, water heater, clothes dryer or other gas appliance.

If engine is to be unused for 30 days or more, prepare as follows:

Remove all gasoline from carburetor and fuel tank to prevent gum deposits from forming on these parts and causing possible malfunction of engine. Drain fuel outdoors, into an approved container, away from open flame. Be sure engine is cool. Do not smoke. Run engine until fuel tank is empty and engine runs out of

gasoline.

NOTE: Fuel stabilizer (such as Sta-Bil)is an acceptable alternative in minimizing the formation of fuel gum deposits during storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline in fuel tank or storage container. Always follow mix ratio found on stabilizer container. Run engine at least 10 min. after adding stabilizer to allow it to reach

the carburetor.

PARKING

NEVER PARK THIS UNIT ON A SLOPE OF ANY KIND. Always keep tines in the up position when parking the unit.
