OPERATION (continued)

CENTER MOUNT LOCK UP

This tractor is equipped with a lockup system that allows the free swinging lift arms to be locked up when not in use.

When knobs (N), figure 13, are all the way in against "U" bracket, the mower can be locked up automatically by raising the hydraulic lift as far as it can go. The lift can then be used for 3 point hitch. To release the lockup pull each knob (N) out and turn 1/4 turn clockwise. Lift can then be used without center lift locking in the raised position.

STORING ARMS FOR USE OF ATTACHMENT OTHER THAN MOWER

With knobs (N) in as described, the free swinging arms (0) can be manually locked up by swinging them rearward until they latch.
