Safety and Instructional Decals


Safety decals and instructions are easily visible to the operator and are located near any area of potential danger. Replace any decal that is damaged or missing.



Preparing the Machine

  1. Park the machine on a level surface.

  2. Move the motion-control levers to the NEUTRAL-LOCK position.

  3. Engage the parking brake.

  4. Shut off the engine and remove the key.

Top bracket1
Carriage bolt (5/16 x 7/8 inch)4
Flange nut (5/16 inch)3

  1. Install the bucket-holder mount into the deck-mounting hole by the discharge plate (Figure 2).

  2. Secure the bracket-support hinge and mount strap to the bucket-holder mount using 3 carriage bolts (5/16 x 7/8 inch) and 3 flange nuts (5/16 inch) as shown in Figure 3.

    Refer to Figure 4 for the proper mount strap. Use the mount strap with the 51 mm (2 inches) bend offset and 4 holes for 48, 52, and 60-inch decks. Use the mount strap with the 13 mm (1/2 inch) bend offset and 3 holes for 72-inch decks.
