OPERATION MULCHING MOWING TIPS MOWING TIPS IMPORTANT : FOR BEST PERFORMANCE , KEEP • Tire chains cannot be used when the mower housing MOWER HOUSING FREE OF BUILT - UP GRASS AND is attached to tractor . TRASH . CLEAN AFTER EACH USE . Mower should be properly leveled for best mowing The special mulching blade will recut the grass clip - performance , See " TO LEVEL MOWER HOUSING " in pings many times and reduce them in size so that as the Service and Adjustments se _ ctionof this manual . they fall onto the lawn they will disperse into the grassill The left hand side of mower should be used for trim - and not be noticed . Also , the mulched grass w ming . biodegrade quickly to provide nutrients for the lawn . Always mulch with your highest engine ( blade ) speedhe Drive so that clippings are discharged onto the area as this will provide the best recutting action of t that has been cut . Have the cut area to the right of the blades . machine . This will result in a more even distribution of clippings and more uniform cutting . • Avoid cutting your lawn when it is wet . Wet grass tends to form clumps and interferes with the mulching action . When mowing large areas , start by turning to the right The best time to mow your lawn is the early afternoon . so that clippings will discharge away from shrubs , At this time the grass has dried and the newly cut area fences , driveways , etc . After one or two rounds , mow will not be exposed to the direct sun . in the opposite direction making left hand turns until finished ( See Fig . 11 ) . • For best results , adjust the mower cutting height so that the mower cuts off only the top one - third of the grass If grass is extremely tall it should be mowed twice to blades ( See Fig . 12 ) . For extremely heavy mulching , reduce load and possible fire hazard from dried clip - reduce your width of cut on each pass and mow slowly . pings . Make first cut relatively high ; the second to the desired height , Do not mow grass when it is wet . Wet grass will plug MAX 1 / 3 mower and leave undesirable clumps . Allow grass to dry before mowing . Always operate engine at full throttle when mowing to assure better mowing performance and proper dis - charge of material . Regulate ground speed by select - ing a low enough gear to give the mower cutting performance 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 . FIG . 12 f Certain types of grass and grass conditions may re - quire that an area be mulched a second time to com - pletely hide the clippings . When doing a second cut , mow across or perpendicular to the first cut path . Change your cutting pattern from week to week . Mow north to south one week then change to east to west the next week . This will help prevent matting and graining of the lawn . FIG . 11 14
