HOW TO REMOVE AND INSTALL THE BLADES

WARNING: Before you remove the blade, disconnect the wire to the spark plug. The blade has sharp edges. When you hold the blade, use gloves or cloth material to protect your hands.

1.Use a piece of wood to keep the blades from rotating.

2.Remove the nuts that hold the blades (Figure 2).

3.Remove the standard blades.

4.Two mulcher blades are in the mulcher kit. Mount themulcher blades and theblade adapters on themandrels (Figure 2).

5.Mount each blade so that thehi–lift edges are up (toward the mower housing). If theblade is upside down, theblade will not cut correctly and can cause an accident.

6.Fasten the blades with the original washers andnuts. Make sure the outside rim of theBelleville washers are against theblades (Figure 3).

NOTE: Check the rotation of the blades. Make sure the blades do not hit the mower housing. If a blade hits, the mower housing is bent. Hit the mower housing with a hammer until the blade does not touch.

WARNING: Always keep the nut tight that holds the blade. A loose nut or blade can cause an accident.

7.Tighten the nuts that hold theblades to a torque of 30 foot pounds(41,5N–m).

MULCHING TIPS

When you use a mulcher attachment, the grass is cut into very small pieces. These small pieces will quickly break down. Because the nutrients are returned to the soil, the lawn will need less fertilizer. Too correctly mulch the grass, follow the steps below.

1.Set the throttle in the FAST position. Operate the mower at a slower ground speed. If ground speed is too fast, the grass will not have an even cut.

2.Keep a sharp edge on the blade. A blade that is not sharp will cause the ends of the grass to become brown.

3.Make sure the grass is dry. Wet grass is difficult to cut.

4.Set the height of the mower housing so that only the top third of the grass is cut. If the grass is too high, set the height of the mower housing to the maximum height. Then, lower the mower housing for the second cut. Also, instead of using the full width of the mower housing, mulch at half the width.

5.Clean the bottom of the mower housing. Grass and other debris can keep the mower from working correctly.

6.If the grass grows fast, mulch more often.

7.If an area needs improvement, mulch a second time.
