Pre-Delivery Service of Mower by Dealer

If you are not completely familiar with the Safety Instruction Manual read it now before proceeding with the Pre-Delivery

WARNING Service of the mower. Only your authorized Wright dealer should perform the Pre-Delivery Service of the mower.

The Wright Stander RH is shipped completely assembled and has been adjusted and tested at the factory. However, due to jostling during the shipping process and the delivery time lapse the following items need to be repeated again before starting the mower. After you have uncrated the mower, follow these procedures in the order indicated:

Inspect the mower for any damage, unusual conditions or missing parts.

Inspect the mower for all of its decals, especially the warning decals. There should be one blade warning decal on each side of the deck, the “shield missing” under the blade belt covers, and the dash decal.

Check (and fill if necessary) engine oil level according to the engine manufacturer’s recommendation.

Check (and fill if necessary) hydraulic fluid level. Use fully SYNTHETIC oil: Mobil-1 15W-50 (see Hydro Check/Fill section of this manual).

Check rear tire pressure – 18 – 22 psi. is recommended. Use the higher pressures for heavier operators. Front Casters are equipped with non-pneumatic tires and do not require any air. Lowering tire pressure will affect deck pitch. Always check pitch any time tire pressure is set below recommended pressures.

Check the battery to see that the cables are tight and connected properly. The battery is 12 volts and is a maintenance-free battery. Only charge the battery if it will not start the mower properly.

Check the Rapid-Hite deck height adjustment mechanism for proper operation.

Lubricate all moving parts (see Maintenance Items section of this manual).

Add regular unleaded gasoline to fuel tank. (use a minimum of 87 octane gasoline) (You may use gasoline containing up to 10% ethanol and gasoline containing up to 5% of methanol.)

Check brake safety interlock.

Try starting the engine with the parking brake released. (Engine should not start. If engine starts, service the parking brake locking system)

With the hand controls in the middle or neutral position, apply the parking brake.

Start the engine according to the engine manufacturer’s recommendation. Let the engine run at low - mid RPM for several minutes to ensure the engine oil reaches all of the engine parts and gets the hydraulic fluid circulating through the pumps, etc.

Check if the parking brake locking system prevents the units from being driven while engaged. If not, service the parking brake locking system.

Release the parking brake. Next, move the hand control levers, one at a time, to make the wheels move in forward and backward rotation.

1

Before testing the blade clutch/brake operation, make sure the area is clear and there is nothing vulnerable to possible thrown objects from under the mower. No one should be near the mower deck or in its line of discharge at this or at any time. The discharge chute deflector should be in the down position.

Move the engine throttle control to ¾ RPM speed setting.

Turn on the blade clutch switch. Run blades for approximately one minute. Next, engage and disengage the blades a few times about 10 seconds apart. If the blades do not start and stop in a few seconds each time, service the blade brake system.

With the blades on, disengage the OPC switch to test the Operator Presence Control switch (OPC). A time delay has been added to the OPC system. The engine should die and the blades should stop with-in 6-9 seconds after stepping off of the foot platform. If not, service the OPC system.

Disengage the blades.

Drive the mower around on a level parking lot. Check that the mower drives in a straight line when both hand controls are at the full speed position. (If not, refer to How to Perform The Tracking Adjustment section of this manual) (The control handles may not line up perfectly)

As you drive the mower, listen for any unusual noises and test for irregular operation and adjust or

service as necessary.

.

Go over the safety information and operating procedures in this manual with the customer. Instruct each customer in proper operation and observe the customer during their initial operation on a level parking lot. Repeat until the customer is familiar and comfortable with the basic operation and use of the mower.

Dealer:

Register the mower online within 14 days from the date of retail purchase.

(If unable to use the online registration process, contact your Distributor to register for you)

Registering the product indicates you have successfully completed the pre-delivery service checklist.

The limited warranty is considered invalid unless the unit is registered and the above steps are taken.

Remember, the purchaser is both your customer and our customer and his/her satisfaction is very important. Thank you for supporting our products.

The mower is now ready for delivery to your customer

Owner/User Notice

The owner’s/user’s obligation is to instruct themselves and all potential users in the safe operation of this equipment and be sure they read

WARNING

User Qualifications

This product is designed for use by physically fit, experienced, professional commercial mower operators who have a minimum of 160 hours of experience operating twelve horsepower and greater industrial mowers. Operators must be 18 years or older and weigh at least 120 pounds and no more than 325 pounds. They must have read and understood this manual. DO NOT allow children to operate the mower. Never allow passengers on the mower. DO NOT allow adults to operate the mower without proper instruction mentioned above.

WARNING

User Clothing

DO NOT operate the mower while wearing sandals, tennis shoes, sneakers, or shorts. Always wear long non-baggy pants. Wear hightop leather steel-toed work boots with thick, textured tread, soft-rubber soled at all times.

3

Hard or smooth soled shoes are too slippery for a good footing on mower platform. NEVER wear loose-fitting clothing or jacket pockets that can get caught on the handlebars or control levers of any mower you drive. Wearing safety glasses, ear protection and safety shoes is advisable and required by some local ordinances and insurance regulations.

WARNING

Inspect Mower Before Each Use

DO NOT use the mower if any parts are not maintained in good operating condition. Examine the moving parts prior to each use. Look for excessive wear, bald or worn tires, cracks in parts, loose or missing bolts, cotter pins, linchpins or “hair” pins or cable yoke pins and replace before operating the mower. Make sure all safety equipment provided with the mower is in good operating order, including all the warning decals and the required operator-presence device which stops the engine and blades when the footoperated Operator Presence Control (OPC) switch is released. (To test the OPC, follow instructions in the Operating Instructions section of this manual.) Inspect the two anti-tip rollers and their respective bolts at the rear of the mower for tightness and proper operation. Be sure that all parts of the hand-operated hydraulic control system are tight and secure. This is to reduce the possibility that the mower could have a loss of control during operation and compromise operator safety.

WARNING

Regular Mower Safety Maintenance

Keep your Wright mower in good operating condition, and keep safety devices and shields in place and in working condition. Replace worn tire(s) with less than 3/32” of any tread groove left. Use tires with the tread pattern specified by Wright Mfg., Inc. only. DO NOT change the engine governor settings or over-rev the engine contrary to engine manufacturer specifications. Failure to comply can compromise operator safety, shorten equipment life and void your manufacturer’s warranty. Keep all nuts, bolts, and screws tight to be sure the equipment is in safe

working condition. Check the blade mounting bolts for proper tightness every eight (8) hours of operation. Check the blades for excessive wear and sharpness every four to eight (4-8) hours of operation. Sharpen dull blades. Replace blades when they become excessively worn. The mower should not be used after the blades or other part of the mower strikes a foreign object, until conducting a thorough inspection and any damage is repaired. Make sure the chute deflector is always in place and operating properly. Replace if the deflector becomes worn or ceases to properly deflect the grass in a safe manner. See the instructions in the Recommended Maintenance section of this manual for other items of required maintenance.

WARNING

Work Area Conditions & Inspection

Prior to operating the unit, carefully inspect all lawn/ground areas where you plan to use the mower for hidden, hard-to-see objects or uneven ground that may be hidden in the grass. Clear the work area of moveable objects such as wires, rocks, glass, toys, etc. that might be picked up by the mower and dangerously thrown. Remove, if possible, or mark the location of all immovable objects or irregular areas and be sure not to hit them with any part of the mower, its deck or the blades. Obstacles such as holes, abrupt changes in ground contour, tree trunks, stumps or roots, pipes protruding from the ground, paving edges, etc. in the path of operation can abruptly turn or stop the mower. This could throw you off the mower or into and possibly over the handle bars causing serious injury or death. The faster you are moving the more potential there is for injury. Mow only in daylight or in good artificial light. Keep away from drop-offs, the edges of ponds, streams, pools, etc. especially at the bottom of slopes. Do not mow when children or others are around. When the Wright mower is in use, never direct the grass discharge toward bystanders, traffic, cars or buildings nor allow anyone within 50 feet of the machine while in operation. Thrown objects can pass through glass windows and some walls of buildings. There is extreme risk of danger from thrown objects or being cut by the blades of the mower or being run over if you lose control. Never operate the mower in an enclosed
