MOWING TIPS • Tire chains cannot be used when the mower housing is attached to tractor . • Mower should be properly leveled for best mowing performance . See " TO LEVEL MOWER HOUSING " in the Service and Adjustments section of this manual . • The left hand side of mower should be used for trimming . • Drive so that clippings are discharged onto the area that has already been cut . Have the cut area to the right of the tractor . This will result in a more even distribution of clippings and more uniform cutting . • When mowing large areas , start by turning to the right so that clippings will discharge away from shrubs , fences , driveways , etc . After one or two rounds , mow in the opposite direction making left hand turns until finished . f J J 15
