IGNITION: The ignition switch is located on the drivers right hand side toward the rear of the seat. The ignition switch has three positions: OFF.

ON. START. THROTTLE: The throttle\choke control is located on the drivers right hand side towards the front of the seat. For maximum performance and battery charging. operate mower at full throttle.

When starting a cold engine. place lever forward in the full choke position.

After start up. move throttle rearward to full throttle position.

Move lever all the way to the rear for lowest setting before shutting off engine.

The 50" Model has a push/pull choke mounted on the right side fender for easier cold weather starts. Pull out to choke (start) engine.

PTO SWITCH: The PTO. or Power Take Off switch is used to engage the blades of the mower.

When the PTO switch is pulled out the blades will be engaged.

When the PTO switch is pushed in the blades will be disengaged.

The PTO switch must be pushed in to complete the Operator's Presence System to start engine.

NEUTRAL LOCK: The steering levers must be in the outward and locked position for the mower to start. ( See page

MOWING

WARNING: Do not operate mower at too fast of a rate. Sudden movements forward and backward at fast speeds can cause accidents resulting in personal iniury.

Start out moving steering levers SLOWLY forward and backward until you learn to operate the unit. NOTE: This mower has been designed to be very maneuverable.

Practice in open. flat areas is extremely necessary to become comfortable and efficient with the controls.

BEGIN TO MOW: Before starting the engine. set the desired deck height.

Start the mower engine.

Position the throttle lever about halfway and engage PTO switch.

Reposition throttle lever to full throttle position.

Move steering levers forward to begin mowing.

CAUTION: Always make sure the deck is not plugged with grass or other debris.

Failure to do this will cause damage to the PTO belt.

STOPPING: Hydrostatic mowers use hydrostatic braking through the transmissions.

To slow or stop the unit move the steering levers to the neutral position

STOPPING THE ENGINE: Move the throttle lever to slow position. allow engine to idle for 30 seconds and turn ignition to off position.

CAUTION: Failure to position the ignition key to any position except off will cause discharge of the battery.

STARTING MOWER

TO START: Position steering handles outward to neutral locked position.

Engage parking brake. Extend throttle to full choke position.

Start ignition and slide throttle lever back to full throttle position.

Allow engine to warm up for 1 minute.

Release parking brake. Model ZT2250 has a remote choke assembly located on the right fender. behind the rider.

FORWARD MOVEMENT: Position steering handles inward to the drive position.

To move the mower forward gently push both steering levers forward equal distance from the neutral position.

The further you move the levers forward the faster you will travel.

CAUTION steering levers have quick response timing.

BACKWARD MOVEMENT: To move the mower backwards. gently pull back on the steering levers the same distance from neutral.

The further you pull back the faster you will travel. NOTE it is normal for the reverse speed to be less than the forward for easier turning.

TURNS: For left turn. move the right lever larther forward then the left. For right turn. move the left lever farther forward than the right. To obtain a tight turning radius.

GENTLY reverse one lever and push the other lever forward.

CAUTION: Aggressive turns can damage lawns.

Do not make turns with the inside wheel stopped.

It it better to keep both wheels turning slightly.

DECK HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT: To raise the mower deck up and down. simply rotate the lever located in front of the seat above the floor plate.

Clockwise raises the deck.

Counterclockwise lowers the deck. The deck is adjustable from 1 1/2"to 3 */2".

For best performance. tall grass should be mowed once in the highest position and once again at desired cut height.

Never cut more thanl/3 the height in one cutting.

ENGAGING BLADES: Operator must be seated for operation of blades.

With engine to full throttle position. pull UP on PTO switch located between the throttle and the key switch.

To disengage blades. push DOWN on PTO switch.

STOPPING ENGINE: Place both levers in the outward neutral locked position.
