Safe operation practices for ride-on mowers
These instructions are for your safety. Read them carefully.
Watch for holes, ruts or bumps. Uneven terrain could overturn the machine. Tall grass can hide obstacles. Use slow speed. Choose a low gear so that you will not have to stop or shift while on the slope. Follow the manufacturers recommendations for wheel weights or counterweights to improve stability. Use extra care with grass catchers or other attachments. These can change the stability of the machine. Keep all movement on the slopes slow and gradual. Do not make sudden changes in speed or direction. Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If tires lose traction, disengage the blades and proceed slowly straight down the slope.
IMPORTANT! This cutting machine is capable of amputating hands and feet and throwing objects. Failure to observe the following safety instructions could result in serious injury or death.

I.General operation

1.Read, understand and follow all instructions in the manual and on the machine before starting. 2.Only allow responsible adults, who are familiar with the instructions, to operate the machine. 3.Clear the area of objects such as rocks, toys, wire, etc., which could be picked up and thrown by the blade. 4.Be sure the area is clear of other people before mowing. Stop the machine if anyone enters the area. 5.Never carry passengers. 6.Do not mow in reverse unless absolutely necessary. Always look down and behind before and while backing. 7.Be aware of the mower discharge direction and do not point it at anyone. Do not operate the mower without either the entire grass catcher or the guard in place. 8.Slow down before turning. 9.Never leave a running machine unattended. Always turn off blades, set parking brake, stop engine and remove keys before dismounting. 10.Turn off blades when not mowing. 11.Stop engine before removing grass catcher or unclogging chute. 12.Mow only in daylight or good articial light. 13.Do not operate the machine while under the inuence of alcohol or drugs. 14.Watch for trafc when operating near or crossing roadways. 15.Use extra care when loading or unloading the machine into a trailer or truck.

DO NOT Do not turn on slopes unless necessary and then, turn slowly and gradually downhill, if possible. Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches or embandments. The mower could suddenly turn over if a wheel is over the edge of a cliff or ditch, or if an edge caves in. Do not mow on wet grass. Reduced traction could cause sliding. Do not try to stabilize the machine by putting your foot on the ground. Do not use grass catcher on steep slopes.


Tragic accidents can occur if the operator is not alert to the presence of children. Children are often attracted to the machine and the mowing activity. Never assume that children will remain where you last saw them. 1.Keep children out of the mowing area and under the watchful care of another responsible adult. 2.Be alert and turn machine off if children enter the area. 3.Before and when backing, look behind and down for small children. 4.Never carry children. They may fall off and be seriously injured or interfere with safe machine operation. 5.Never allow children to operate the machine. 6.Use extra care when approaching blind corners, shrubs, trees or other objects that may obscure vision.

II.Slope operation

Slopes are a major factor related to loss-of-control and tipover accidents, which can result in severe injury or death. All slopes require extra caution. If you cannot back up the slope or if you feel uneasy on it, do not mow it.
DO Mow up and down slopes, not across. Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree limbs, etc.

Driving on slopes

Driving on slopes is one of the operations where the risk of the driver losing control of the machine or of it overturning is the greatest; this can result in serious injury or death. All slopes demand extra care. If you cannot reverse up a slope or if you feel unsure, do not mow it. IMPORTANT INFORMATION Do not drive down slopes with the unit raised.

This is what you do

WARNING! You must use approved personal protective equipment whenever you use the machine. Personal protective equipment cannot eliminate the risk of injury but it will reduce the degree of injury if an accident does happen. Ask your dealer for help in choosing the right equipment. Remove obstacles such as stones, branches, etc. Mow upwards and downwards, not sideways.
Use hearing protection to minimise the risk of hearing impairment.
Wear approved protective glasses during assembly and when operating. Never wear loose tting clothes that can catch in moving parts. Never use the machine when barefoot. Always wear protective shoes or protective boots, preferably with steel toes.

Do not use the machine on ground that slopes more than 10. Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If the tyres start to slip, stop the blades and drive slowly down the slope. Always drive smoothly and slowly on slopes. Do not make any sudden changes in speed or direction. Avoid unnecessary turns on slopes, if necessary, turn slowly and gradually downwards if possible. Drive slowly. Do not turn the wheel sharply. Watch out for and avoid driving over furrows, holes and bumps. It is easier for the machine to overturn on uneven ground. Tall grass can hide obstacles.
Make sure that you have rst aid equipment close at hand when using the machine.
Take extra care if any attachments are tted that can change the stability of the machine. Do not mow too close to edges, ditches or banks. The machine can suddenly overturn if one wheel comes over the edge of a steep slope or a ditch, or if an edge gives way. Do not mow wet grass. It is slippery, and tyres can lose their grip so that the machine skids.

12 English

Do not try to stabilize the machine by putting your foot on the ground. When cleaning the chassis, the machine may never be driven near verges or ditches. Follow the manufacturers recommendations regarding wheel weights or counterbalance weights to increase machine stability. IMPORTANT INFORMATION Wheel weights tted on the rear wheels are recommended when driving on slopes for safer steering and improved manoeuvrability. Consult your dealer concerning the use of wheel weights if you are unsure. Wheel weights can not be used on AWD-machines. Use counterweights.


Stop the engine. Prevent starting by removing the ignition cable from the spark plug or remove the ignition key before making any adjustments or carrying out maintenance. Never ll the fuel tank indoors.


Serious accidents may occur if you fail to be on your guard for children in the vicinity of the machine. Children are often attracted to the machine and mowing. Never assume that children will remain where you last saw them. Keep children away from the area to be mowed and under close supervision by another adult. Keep an eye out and shut off the machine if children enter the work area. Before and during reversing procedures, look behind you and down for small children. Never allow children to ride along. They can fall off and seriously injure themselves or be in the way for safe manoeuvring of the machine. Never allow children to operate the machine.

Congratulations on your choice of an excellent quality product that will give you great pleasure for many years. This operators manual describes Rider 175 and Rider 175 AWD. The machines are equipped with a 17,5 horse power engine from Briggs & Stratton. Rider 175 AWD is equipped with all wheel drive. The power transmission from the engine is handled by a hydrostatic gearbox, which allows variable variation of the speed by using the pedals. One pedal for driving forward and one for reverse.
The parking brake is applied as follows:
Throttle control/choke control
The throttle control regulates the engine speed, and thereby also the rotation speed of the blades. The control is also used to activate the choke. When the choke is engaged a richer fuel and air mixture is fed to the engine, which facilitates starting in the cold.
Press down the parking brake pedal (1). Press in the lock button (2) on the steering column. Release the parking brake pedal while keeping the button pressed in.
The parking brake lock disengages automatically when the brake pedal is pressed.

Cutting unit

Rider 175 and 175 AWD have a 3-blade cutting units.

Speed limiter

The speed of the machine is steplessly regulated with two pedals. Pedal (1) is used to drive forwards, and pedal (2) to drive backwards. Combi 1030mm/41
The Combi-unit, equipped with a BioClip-plug, nely chops the cuttings to fertiliser. Without the BioClip-plug the unit works in the same way as a rear ejection unit.
Lifting lever for the cutting unit
The lift lever is used to set the cutting unit in transport or mowing position. If the lever is pulled backwards the unit is raised and the blades automatically stop rotating (transport position).
WARNING! Make sure that branches do not obstruct the pedals when mowing under bushes. Otherwise there is a risk you may lose control.

16 English

If the lock button is pressed in and the lever is moved forwards the unit will be lowered and the blades will automatically start to rotate (mowing position).


The engine runs on unleaded petrol with a minimum octane rating of 85 (not mixed with oil). We recommend the use of biodegradable alkylate petrol. (max. methanol 5%, max. ethanol 10%, max. MTBE 15%) Do not ll the tank completely, leave an expansion area of at least 2.5 cm (1).
The lever can also be used to temporarily regulate the cutting height, e.g. for a small mound in the lawn.
Cutting height adjustment lever
The cutting height can be adjusted to 7 different positions with the cutting height lever. Combi-unit 40-90 mm (1 9/16 - 3 9/16)
WARNING! Petrol is highly inammable. Exercise care and refuel outdoors (see safety instructions).
IMPORTANT INFORMATION Do not use the fuel tank as a support area.
The seat has a jointed attachment on the front edge and can be tipped forward.
The seat can also be adjusted lengthways. Loosen the handles under the seat and adjust it forwards or backwards to the desired position.

2 Pull the choke wire casing to the far right and tighten the clamping screw.

Replacing the air lter

WARNING! The exhaust system is hot. Let it cool before starting to replace the air lter.
If the engine seems to lack power or does not run smoothly this may be because the air lter is clogged. It is therefore important to replace the air lter at regular intervals (see Maintenance/Maintenance Schedule for the correct service interval). Replace the air lter as follows: 3 Pull back the throttle to the full throttle position and check that the choke is no longer actuated. Open the engine cover. Pull up the handle on the air lter cover, unhook and turn towards the engine.

Replacement of fuel lter

Replace the fuel lter every 100 running hours (once per season) or more frequently if it is clogged. 3 Remove the air lter cover. Lift out the air lter cartridge from the fan housing.
Replace the lter as follows: Open the engine cover. Move the hose clips away from the lter. Use a pair of at pliers. Pull off the lter from the hose ends. Press the new lter into the ends of the hoses. If necessary apply liquid detergent to the ends of the lter to facilitate connection. Push the hose clips back on the lter and tighten. Replace the air lter cartridge, if clogged with dirt. IMPORTANT INFORMATION Never run the engine without the air lter tted. Do not use compressed air to clean the paper lter. The lters must not be oiled. They must be tted dry. 4 Carefully lift the precleaner out of the fan housing.
Carefully clean the fan housing so that dirt does not fall down into the carburettor.
Insert a new precleaner and air lter cartridge in the fan housing. Align the tabs on the cover with the slits in the housing and replace the air lter cover.
WARNING! Procedures on contact with acid External: Rinse well with plenty of water. Internal: Drink large quantities of water or milk. Contact a doctor as soon as possible.

Checking the engines oil level.
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. Place a container underneath the engines left oil drain plug. Remove the dipstick. Remove the drain plug from the engines left side.
Let the oil run out into the container. Fit the drain plug and tighten it. If necessary ll 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 engines oil level for lling instructions. The engine holds 1.4 litres (1.5 USqt) when the oil lter is not replaced and 1.6 litres (1.7 USqt) of oil when the oil lter is replaced. Run the engine warm, then check that there is no leakage from the oil plug.
Now insert the dipstick again. The dipstick should be completely screwed down 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. 6
IMPORTANT INFORMATION Used engine oil 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 lter

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 engine. Wait 30 seconds and check the oil level. If necessary ll so that the oil comes up to the FULL mark on the dipstick. First and foremost use synthetic engine oil class SJ-CF 5W/ 30 or 10W/30 for all temperature ranges. Mineral oil SAE30, class SFCC can be used at temperatures > +5 C (40 F) Do not mix different types of oil. Caution when using oils such as 5W-20, 10W-30 and 10W-40 the engines oil consumption increases. If these oils must be used, check the oil level frequently. Lightly lubricate the rubber seal on the new oil lter using new oil. Fit the oil lter by turning clockwise. Turn by hand until the rubber seal is seated. Now tighten a further half turn. Fill with new oil according to Checking the engines 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 lter. The oil lter must be replaced after every 200 hours running time. Turn the old oil lter anti-clockwise to remove. If necessary, use a lter remover.
