Your tractor is now purged and now ready for normal The best time to mow your lawn is the early afternoon . operation . At this time the grass has dried and the newly cut area will not be exposed to the direct sun . MOWING TIPS For best results , adjust the mower cutting height so that Mower should be properly leveled for best mowing the mower cuts off only the top one - third of the grass performance . See " TO LEVEL MOWER HOUSING " in blades ( See Fig . 11 ) . For extremely heavy mulching , the Service and Adjustments section of this manual . red uce your width of cut on each pass and mow slowly . The left hand side of mower should be used for trimming . Certain types ofg rass and grass conditions may require that an area be mulched a second time to completely Drive so that clippings are discharged onto the area that hide the clippings . When doing a second cut , mow has been cut . Have the cut area to the right of the machine . This will result in a more even distribution of across or perpendicular to the first cut path . clippings and more uniform cutting . Change your cutting pattern from week to week . Mow north to south one week then change to east to west the When mowing large areas , start by turning to the right so next week . This will help prevent matting and graining that clippings will discharge away from shrubs , fences , of the lawn . driveways , etc . After one or two rounds , mow in the opposite direction making left hand turns until finished ( See Fig . 10 ) . If grass is extremely tall , it should be mowed twice to MAX 1 / 3 reduce load and possible fire hazard from dried clip - pings . Make first cut relatively high ; the second to the desired height . Do not mow grass when it is wet . Wet grass will plug mowerand leave undesirable clumps . Allow grass to dry before mowing . Always operate engine at full th rottle when mowing to assure better mowing performance and proper dis - charge of material . Regulate ground speed by selecting a low enough gear to give the mower cutting perfor - FIG . 11 mance as well as the quality of cut desired . When operating attachments , select a ground speed that will suit the terrain and give best performance of the attachment being used . 14
