Using RIO

CAUTION: Children or bystanders may be injured by rotating blades. Before traveling forward or rearward:

  • Carefully check the area around the machine.
  • Disengage the mower before backing up.

 

NOTE: Backing up while the mower is engaged is strongly discouraged. RIO should be used only when operating another attachment or when the operator deems it necessary to reposition the machine with the mower engaged.

 

  1. Stop forward travel.
  2. Look behind the machine to be sure there are no bystanders.
  3. Push and hold in the RIO switch while depressing the reverse pedal slightly for a hydrostatic transmission or moving the transmission shift lever to the rear slot (reverse) for a continuously variable transmission (CVT)/automatic transmission.

 

NOTE: If the engine and mower or other attachment stops while repositioning the machine, return the attachment engagement lever/switch to the off position. Start the engine and engage mower or other attachment. Begin again with step 2.

 

  1. Release the RIO switch and reposition the machine as the machine begins to move rearward.
  2. Resume forward travel. The mower or other attachment should continue operating.
  3. Repeat procedure to position the machine again.

  • Dual-stage E-coat and powder paint coatings provide extra protection from rust.
  • Flexible discharge chute minimizes property and mower deck damage.

The 48-in. (122-cm) Edge Mower Deck is a three-spindle design with heavy-duty characteristics:

  • The 12-gauge, 0.105-in. (2.7-mm) steel deck provides years of dependable mowing.
  • Included three-in-one blades work well for side-discharge, mulching, or bagging.
  • The blade-to-spindle design provides a unique mounting system for the mower blade that gives extra safety and convenience.
  • Four mower deck wheels are standard equipment for a smooth mowing job in rolling terrain.
  • No tools are required to switch from mulching to side discharge to rear bagging.
  • A mulching cover is an optional attachment that can be installed without the use of tools.
