For best engine performance and good service life, operate at 2/3 to full throttle. DO NOT lug the engine by operating at low R.P.M. To operate, depress clutch-brake pedal and position gear shift lever into desired position (shift pattern on dash, Figure "A").  It may be necessary to let clutch out quickly and then depress it again, which will rotate the gears enough to permit easy engagement. Now, let the clutch out slowly to insure a smooth start. Stop forward motion of tractor before shifting gears. DO NOT "grind" gears when shifting as this can result in serious damage to the transmission.

Fully depressing the clutch-brake pedal will apply the brake for emergency stopping.


A.  Before stopping the engine, remove load and allow engine to idle for a few minutes before turning it off. The "cooling off" period can prevent damage to engine parts.

B.  Lock parking brake by fully depressing clutch-brake pedal and turning parking brake handle (Page 3) clockwise.

C.  Turn ignition key to the "Off" position and remove the key from the tractor.
