MOWER BLADE ADJUSTMENT (FIG. 4)

1.The blades have been preadjusted before leaving the factory.

2.Misalignment can occur resulting in blades that are too loose or too tight. If this happens, you will notice a rough, uneven cut or hard-pushing mower.

3.All adjustments are made from the rear of the mower (opposite from the bar with the logo decal). Each end of the cutting bar can be adjusted separately.

4.As you follow the instructions below, refer to Fig.4 for more information.

5.The cutting bar blade (located under the reel) pivots. The front screws move the cutter bat away from the blades, while the rear screws move the cutter bar toward the blades.

6.Adjusting the screws is a very sensitive procedure. 1-16th of a turn is considered a major adjustment.

7.Before tightening one adjusting screw, be sure to loosen the opposing screw and equal amount.

CHECKING ADJUSTMENTS

1.Turn mower upside down.

2.Insert a piece of paper (i.e., writing or newspaper between the cutter bar and the reel blades, and carefully turn the reel blades by hand.

3.All blades should slice the paper evenly the entire length of the cutter bar while the reel turns smoothly.

4.If the mower has an intermittent cut, adjustment should be made to the appropriate side of the blades to attain proper cutting action.

GENERAL CARE

1.Minimum care is required to assure smooth operation of your mower.

2.To avoid damage to the mower or cutting blades,keep the area to be mowed free from any debris.

3.We suggest a routine application of oil or lubricant (i.e., WD-40). This should be applied to all cutting surfaces, the cutting reel axle shaft and wheels.

SHARPENING THE CUTTING BLADES

1.When the mower is properly lubricated and adjusted, sharpening should not be necessary for several years.

However, the following steps will allow you to do the procedure yourself at relatively little expense.

2.Spread a thin layer of lapping compound on the front edge of the reel blades.

3.Adjust the cutter bar so that the cutter bar blade has light but firm contact with the reel blades across the full width of the cutter bar.

WARNING: Do not overtighten the adjusting screws, as this could damage the cutter bar. Both screws must be tight on the final adjustment.

4.Turning the reel blades backward, until the reel blades rotate retativety free and the front edge of the cutter bar blade is polished.

5.Remove wheels; reverse pinions and pawls so that the beveled edge of the pawl is on the right.
