Add fuel to the machine before starting it. Refer to your Operator’s Manual for the correct fuel and procedure.
Before you start the engine and use the machine, check the oil level in the engine crankcase; refer to the Operator's Manual.
Front and rear tires air pressure specification: 124 kPa (18 psi).
Note: Check the tire pressure before starting the machine. Refer to your Operator’s Manual for the correct tire type, correct air pressure needed, and procedure.
Park the machine on a level surface, disengage the blade-control switch, and engage the parking brake.
Move the motion-control levers to the NEUTRAL-LOCK position and start the engine.
Note: Run the engine at the lowest possible rpm to purge any air in the system.
Important: Do not engage the PTO.
Raise the deck to extend the lift cylinders, shut off the engine, and remove the key.
Raise the seat to access the hydraulic-fluid tank.
Remove the hydraulic-tank cap (Figure 1).
Remove the dipstick and wipe it with a clean rag (Figure 1).
Place the dipstick into the filler neck, remove it, and check the fluid level (Figure 2).
Note: If the level is not within the notched area of the dipstick, add enough high-quality hydraulic fluid to raise the level to within the notched area.
Important: Do not overfill.
Replace the dipstick and thread the fill cap finger-tight onto the filler neck.
Check all hoses and fittings for leaks.
Park the machine on a level surface.
Lower the mower deck to the 2.5 cm (1 inch) height of cut.
Disengage the blade-control switch, move the motion-control levers to the NEUTRAL-LOCK position, and engage the parking brake.
Shut off the engine and remove the key.
Raise the deck-lift pedal to expose the top of the mower deck.
Remove the dipstick/fill plug from the top of the gearbox and ensure that the lubricant is between the marks on the dipstick (Figure 3).
If the fluid level is low, add fluid until the level is between the marks on the dipstick.
Important: Do not overfill the gearbox; overfilling the gearbox may damage it.
Before you start the engine and use the machine, check the wheel lug nut torque; refer to Checking the Wheel Lug Nuts in the Operator's Manual

Use the hardware included to install the new battery. Refer to Installing the Battery in the Operator's Manual.
Pull the knob and rotate 90° to the unlatched position (Figure 4).
Raise the roll bar to the operate position, and rotate the knobs so that they move partially into the grooves (Figure 4).
Raise the roll bar to the full upright position while pushing on the upper roll bar and the pins snap into position when the holes align with the pins (Figure 4).
Important: Always use the seat belt with the roll bar in the raised position.
Push on the roll bar and ensure that both pins are engaged (Figure 5).
