Lead-acid batteries produce explosive gases. Avoid sparks, open flames and smoking close to batteries. Always wear protective glasses in the vicinity of batteries. If the battery is too weak to start the engine, it should be recharged. 2 When jump leads are used for emergency starting, follow the procedure below: Carefully press down one of the pedals until the required speed is obtained. Pedal (1) is used to drive forwards, and pedal (2) to drive backwards. 1 2 IMPORTANT INFORMATION Your Rider is equipped with a 12-volt system with negative earth. The other vehicle must also have a 12-volt system with negative earth. Do not use your Rider battery to start other vehicles. Connecting the jump leads 3 Select the required cutting height (1-10) with the cutting height lever. It is important that the air pressure in both front wheels is equal, 60 kPa / 0,6 bar / 8.5 PSI, to produce an even cutting height. 4 • Connect each end of the red cable to the POSITIVE pole (+) on each battery, exercise care not to short circuit any of the ends against the chassis. • Connect one end of the black cable to the NEGATIVE pole (-) on the fully charged battery. • Connect the other end of the black cable to a good CHASSIS EARTH, away from the fuel tank and the battery. Press in the lock button on the lifting lever and lower the cutting unit. Remove the cables in the reverse order IMPORTANT INFORMATION • The BLACK cable is removed from the chassis and then the fully charged battery. • Finally the RED cable from both batteries. The life span of the drive belts is increased significantly if the engine runs at a low speed when the blades are engaged. Therefore apply full throttle first when the cutting unit has been moved to the mowing position. English – 19 Driving Cutting tips Stop the engine Preferably allow the engine to idle for a minute to obtain normal working temperature before stopping it if it has been working hard. Avoid idling the engine for long periods, as there is a risk of carbon build-up on the spark plugs. ! Localise and mark stones and other fixed objects to avoid collision. • Start with a high cutting height and reduce down until the required mowing results are obtained. • The mowing result will be best with the highest permitted engine speed, see technical data, (the blades rotate rapidly) and low speed (the Rider moves slowly). If the grass is not too high and thick, the driving speed can be increased without noticeably depreciating the mowing result. The best lawns are achieved if the grass is cut often. Mowing becomes more uniform and the grass cuttings become more evenly distributed over the surface. The total time consumption is not greater since it is possible to select a higher driving speed without inferior mowing results. • Avoid mowing a wet lawn. The mowing results will then be poorer. • Hose down the cutting unit with water underneath each time it is used. The cutting unit should then be put in the service position. • When the BioClip function is used, it is very important that the mowing interval is not too long. ! Lift up the cutting unit by pulling the lever backwards to its locked position. 2 Move the throttle to the idle position. Turn the ignition key to the ”STOP”. WARNING! Clear the lawn from stones and other objects which can be thrown out by the blades. • • 1 WARNING! Do not use the machine on ground that slopes more than 10°°. Mow slopes upwards and downwards, never across. Avoid sudden changes in direction. 20 – English STOP 3 START When the Rider is at a standstill, press down the parking brake and push in the locking button.

If doubts arise, contact your service representative. 3 Tighten the locking nuts (1) after adjustment. 4 The parking brake should be checked again after the adjustment has been made. ! If adjustment is necessary, adjust the lower wire as follows: WARNING! A poorly adjusted parking brake can result in reduced braking ability. 1 Loosen the clamping screw for the cable’s outer casing and move the throttle to the full throttle position. 2 Check that the throttle wire is attached to the correct hole in the lower lever, see diagram. 3 Pull the throttle wire casing to the far left and tighten the clamping screw. English – 23 Maintenance Checking and adjusting the choke wire Replacing the air filter If the engine is producing black smoke or is difficult to start then the choke wire (upper wire) may be incorrectly adjusted. If doubts arise, contact your service representative. If it is necessary to adjust the choke, proceed as follows: ! WARNING! The exhaust system is hot. Let it cool before starting to replace the air filter. If the engine seems to lack power or does not run smoothly this may be because the air filter is clogged. It is therefore important to replace the air filter at regular intervals (see Maintenance/Maintenance Schedule for the correct service interval). Replace the air filter as follows: 1 Release the clamping screw that secures the wire casing and set the choke control to maximum choke. 2 Check that the throttle wire is attached to the upper lever, see diagram. 3 Pull the choke wire casing to the far right and tighten the clamping screw. 1 Loosen the knobs holding the filter cover in place and remove it. 2 Loosen the hose clip that holds the filter cartridge. 3 Remove the filter cartridge from the filter housing. Replacement of fuel filter Replace the fuel filter every 100 running hours (once per season) or more frequently if it is clogged. Replace the filter as follows: 1 Open the engine cover. 2 Move the hose clips away from the filter. Use a pair of flat pliers. 3 Pull off the filter from the hose ends. 4 Press the new filter into the ends of the hoses. If necessary apply liquid detergent to the ends of the filter to facilitate connection. 5 Push the hose clips back on the filter and tighten. Checking the fuel pump’s air filter IMPORTANT INFORMATION Never run the engine without the air filter fitted. The filters must not be oiled. They must be fitted dry. 4 Remove the foam rubber prefilter which is placed around the filter cartridge and clean using a mild detergent. 5 Dry the pre-filter properly. 6 Clean the filter by knocking it with care against a hard surface. Do not use compressed air to clean the filter. Replace the air filter if it is still dirty. Check regularly that the fuel pump’s air filter is free from dirt. The filter can when necessary be cleaned with a brush. Always replace the paper filter every 200 hours. 7 24 – English Refit the pre-filter on the paper filter. Maintenance 8 Pull the filter over the air hose and clamp the filter cartridge in place with a hose clip. Check the safety system The machine is equipped with a safety system that prevents starting or driving under the following conditions. The engine can only be started when: • The cutting deck is raised and the parking brake is applied. The engine should stop when: 9 • The cutting deck is lowered and the driver rises from the seat. • The cutting deck is in its raised position, the parking brake is not applied and the driver rises from the seat. Refit the air filter cover. Ignition system The engine is equipped with an electronic ignition system. Only the spark plug requires maintenance. Check daily to ensure that the safety system works by attempting to start the engine when one of the conditions above is not met. Change the conditions and try again. For recommended spark plug, see Technical data. IMPORTANT INFORMATION Fitting the wrong spark plug type can damage the engine. Replacing the spark plug 1 Remove the ignition cable shoe and clean around the spark plug. 2 Remove the spark plug with a 3/4” (16 mm) spark plug socket wrench. 3 Check the spark plug. Replace the spark plug if the electrodes are burned or if the insulation is cracked or damaged. Clean the spark plug with a steel brush if it is to be reused. 4 Measure the electrode gap with a gapping tool. The gap should be 0.75 mm/0.030”. Adjust as necessary by bending the side electrode. 5 Reinsert the spark plug, turning by hand to avoid damaging the threads. 6 Tighten the spark plug, once it touches the seating, with the spark plug spanner. Tighten the spark plug so that the washer is compressed. A used spark plug should be turned 1/8 of a turn from the seated position. A new spark plug should be turned a 1/4 turn from the seated position. 7 Replace the ignition cable shoe.

Remove the drain plug from the engine’s left side. 3 Let the oil run out into the container. 4 Fit the drain plug and tighten it. 5 If necessary fill so that the oil comes up to the FULL mark on the dipstick. The oil is topped up through the hole the dipstick sits in. See Checking the engine’s oil level for filling instructions. The engine holds 1.5 litres (1.6 USqt) when the oil filter is not replaced and 1.7 litres (1.8 USqt) of oil when the oil filter is replaced. 6 Run the engine warm, then check that there is no leakage from the oil plug. Check the oil level in the engine when the Rider stands horizontal with the engine switched off. Open the engine cover. Loosen the dipstick, pull it up and wipe it off. Now insert the dipstick again, without tightening it. Pull the dipstick out again and read the oil level. The oil level should be between the markings on the dipstick. If the level is approaching the ADD mark, top up the oil to the FULL mark on the dipstick. IMPORTANT INFORMATION The oil is topped up through the hole the dipstick sits in. Fill the oil slowly. Tighten the dipstick correctly before starting the engine. Start and run the engine at idling speed for approx. 30 seconds. Turn off the motor. Wait 30 seconds and check the oil level. If necessary fill so that the oil comes up to the FULL mark on the dipstick. The following oil classes are recommended: • Used engine oil, antifreeze etc. is a health hazard and must not be disposed of on the ground or in nature; it should always be disposed of at a workshop or appropriate disposal location. Avoid skin contact; wash with soap and water in case of spills. Changing the oil filter The oil filter must be replaced after every 200 hours running time. Turn the old oil filter anti-clockwise to remove. If necessary, use a filter remover. API Service Class: SF, SG, SH and SJ Choose an oil with viscosity according to the temperature ranges in the figure: Lightly lubricate the rubber seal on the new oil filter using new oil. Fit the oil filter by turning clockwise. Turn by hand until the rubber seal is seated. Now tighten a further half turn. Do not mix different types of oil. Replacing the engine oil The engine oil should be changed the first time after 8 hours running time. It should then be changed after every 100 hours of running time. When operating with a heavy load or at high ambient temperatures, replace every 50 hours. ! WARNING! Engine oil can be very hot if it is drained directly after stopping the engine. Allow the engine to cool somewhat first. 32 – English Fill with new oil according to Checking the engine’s oil level. Start the engine and let it idle for about 3 minutes. Now stop it and check for signs of leakage. Fill with oil to compensate for the oil held in the new oil filter. Lubrication Checking the transmission oil level General lubrication 1 All joints and bearings are lubricated using molybdenum disulphide grease during manufacture. Continue to lubricate using the same type of grease *. Lubricate the steering and control wires using engine oil. Remove the transmission cover. Undo the two screws (one on each side) and lift off the transmission cover. Carry out this lubrication regularly; with daily use, the machine should be lubricated twice weekly. *Grease from well-known brand names (petrochemical companies, etc.) usually maintains a good quality. The most important property is that the grease provides good protection against corrosion. 2 Check that there is oil in the transmission’s oil tank. Rider 220T Fill if necessary with engine oil SAE 10W/40 (class SF–CC). Rider 322T AWD Fill if necessary with oil Synthetic 10W/50 The oil and filter should be changed by an authorised service representative, as described in the Workshop Manual. Work on the system entails particular demands on cleanliness and the system must be vented before the machine is used. Lubricating the belt adjuster The belt adjuster should be lubricated regularly using good quality molybdenum disulphide grease*. Lubricate using a grease gun, 1 nipple from the right-hand side under the engine’s lower belt pulley, until grease is forced out. With daily use, lubrication should be carried out twice weekly.

Fuel which is left to stand for long periods (30 days or more) can leave tacky deposits which can block the carburettor and interfere with the engine. There is a cover to protect your machine during storage or transport. Contact your dealer for a demonstration Fuel stabiliser is an acceptable alternative to avoid tacky deposits during storage. If alkylate petrol (Aspen) is used stabiliser is not necessary since this fuel is stable. However, one should avoid changing from standard to alkylate petrol since sensitive rubber parts can harden. Add stabiliser to the fuel in the tank or the storage container. Always use the mixing ratios indicated by the manufacturer. Run the engine for at least 10 minutes after adding the stabiliser so that it will reach the carburettor. Do not empty the fuel tank and carburettor if stabiliser has been added. Low season is the most suitable time to perform a service or overhaul of the machine in order to ensure high function safety during high season. ! Service When ordering spare parts state your machine’s purchase year, model, type, and serial number. Always use genuine parts. Annual inspection or tuning by an authorised service workshop is a good way of getting the best out of your machine the next season. WARNING! Never store a machine with fuel in the tank indoors or in poorly ventilated spaces where fuel vapour can come in contact with open flames, sparks, or a pilot light such as in a boiler, hot water tank, clothes drier, etc. Exercise caution when handling fuel. It is highly inflammable, and careless use can cause serious injury and damage to property. Drain off the fuel in an approved container outdoors and well clear of naked flames. Never use petrol for cleaning purposes. Use degreasing agents and hot water instead. To prepare the machine for storage follow these instructions: 1 Carefully clean the machine, especially under the cutting unit. Touch-up paint damage to avoid rust. 2 Inspect the machine for worn or damaged parts and tighten loose screws and nuts. 3 Change the engine oil, and take care of the waste oil. 4 Empty the fuel tank. Start the engine and run it until the carburettor is emptied of fuel. 5 Remove the plugs and pour about a tablespoon of engine oil into each cylinder. Pull round the engine to distribute the oil and screw the plugs back on. 6 Grease all grease nipples, joints and axles. 7 Remove the battery. Clean it, charge it, and store it in a cool place. 8 Store the machine in a clean and dry place and cover it over for extra protection.
