  • When service is required, the service reminder will flash for one hour.
  • Follow the service timetable in the operator’s manual.

Hood opens for convenient access to important service areas.

Reverse implement option (RIO)

RIO switch

Mowing while backing up is strongly discouraged.

The operator who deems it necessary to keep the mower (or other implement) engaged while backing up should first bring the tractor to a stop and look behind the tractor to be sure there are no bystanders. Then actuate (push in) the RIO button. The RIO button must be held down in the reverse implement position as the shift lever is moved into reverse (reverse foot pedal is depressed on models with a hydrostatic transmission).

The operator may then release the button and the mower will continue to operate while backing up and when resuming forward operation. This procedure must be repeated the next time the operator chooses to keep the mower engaged while backing up. If the mower power take-off (PTO) is engaged and the operator shifts into reverse or depresses the reverse pedal prior to pressing the RIO button, ignition to the engine will be shut off. The engine will stop unless the operator either pushes on the RIO switch or shifts out of reverse.

If the engine does stop, the operator must return the mower engagement (PTO) switch or lever to the off position, depress the brake pedal, and then turn the ignition switch to restart the engine.

92-cm (36-in.) Rear-Discharge Rear-Collect Mower Deck cuts clean

92-cm (36-in.) Mower (top view)

Heavy-duty V-belt drive

The innovative design of the 92-cm (36-in.) Edge™ Rear-Discharge Deck combines the best features for reliability and superior performance when mowing and collecting grass and leaves:

  • The mower deck is stamped from 12-gauge, 2.7-mm (0.105-in.) steel to provide smooth contours for a quality appearance and excellent performance.
  • With no side-discharge chute, the mower can trim on either side for mowing efficiency and convenience.
    • A smaller storage area requirement is an additional benefit.
  • A standard V-belt and non-timed blade design gives superior reliability and trouble-free operation.
  • Offset mower blades permit blade overlap with the use of a standard V-belt drive.
    • The blades cut cleanly without being able to contact each other.
  • A heavy-duty V-belt and large spring-loaded idler pulley transfer power to the mower blades efficiently and reliably.
  • Cut-height increments of 0.64 cm (0.25 in.) allow for operating the mower at the optimum cutting height.
  • A quick-adjust deck-levelling system is provided to make keeping the deck properly adjusted easy.

92-cm (36-in.) Mower (bottom view)

Contoured deck and discharge blade

The underside of the mower deck is contoured and free of obstructions to ensure optimum cutting and bagging performance:

  • Grass clippings flow smoothly around the deck and up the chute into the hopper.
  • Clipping buildup is minimized to ensure continued high-performance and easy cleanup.
  • Special discharge blades (standard equipment) have a large wing to propel grass clippings up the chute and into the hopper.
  • Mower fills and packs the 300-L (8.5-bu) hopper with a large volume of grass clippings and/or leaves.

92-cm (36-in.) mower, left side

Exceptional mowing and bagging performance begins with the deep-deck design of the mower. The deck is 100-mm (3.9-in.) deep at the front and grows even deeper from front to rear to create a smooth transition into the chute.

Wash port

Hose-end adapter example for use with wash port

A wash port is provided on the mower deck. It can be used to supply water to the underside of the mower deck so it can be easily cleaned after use:

  • Wash port is designed for hose quick-connect fitting.
  • Connect hose and operate the mower to clean.
  • Using the wash port cleans bottom of deck and chute.
  • Wash port works best if used immediately after the mowing job is completed.
  • Operating the mower deck while the water is running removes grass clippings.
  • Use of the wash port prevents buildup of material from affecting performance the next time the mower is used.

NOTE: A hose-end adapter for the appropriate water hose to be used can be purchased locally for connection to the wash port.

Optional rear deflector

Optional rear deflector in operation

Optional rear deflector (BG20822) easily installs in place of hopper:

  • No tools required for installation
  • Deflects clippings in an even pattern behind the tractor

Optional mulch plug (typical mulch plug shown, not BG20698)

Optional mulch plug (BG20698) easily installs in place of hopper:

  • When collecting grass clippings and leaves is not desired, a mulch plug and mulching blades are available. The rear hopper can be easily removed and the mulch plug installed.
  • Plug closes off opening on bottom of deck so material cannot enter the chute.
  • Special mulch blades are provided to optimize mulching performance.
  • The mulching blades will also provide excellent performance when used with the rear-discharge deflector and good performance for collecting. If collecting in heavy or wet conditions, it may be necessary to reinstall the standard bagging blades for optimum performance.

Rear hopper has large 300-L (8.5-bu) capacity and is easy to empty

X167R Tractor mowing lawn

300-L (8.5-bu) hopper is raised to empty grass

The large-capacity, rear-mounted hopper makes collecting grass and leaves easy. The rear design allows excellent manoeuvrability when mowing.

The 300-L (8.5-bu) capacity hopper holds a lot of material for longer mowing times between emptying. Emptying the hopper is easily accomplished from the operator’s seat.

The durable plastic bottom will last a long time, even when operating in rougher conditions.

Switch detects when the hopper is full

Indicator light on dash turns on when the hopper is full

Audible alarm sounds when the hopper is full

When the hopper is full, a light on the dash comes on and an audible alarm sounds to alert the operator to disengage the power take-off (PTO).

  • When the PTO is engaged and there is enough material in the hopper to activate the sensing switch, the dash-mounted hopper full indicator light and an audible alarm will be on.
  • This reduces the potential for plugging the system.
  • The hopper must be full, with enough material to activate the hopper-full switch, to activate the hopper-full indicator and alarm.

Easy-to-empty 300-L (8.5-bu) hopper

Adjustable hopper latch

The hopper is emptied by pulling up, then forward, on the hopper handle. Using the leverage of the long handle, pull forward hard enough to overcome the spring-loaded hopper latch and rotate the hopper upward.

 

The hopper latch is easily adjustable for operator preference and conditions:

  • The spring can be located in any of three holes.
  • More latching effort is required for hilly or rough operating conditions.

Front hopper support

Standard-equipment hitch

The hopper is easily removed from the tractor by using the rear handle to raise the back of the hopper 25 degrees, or about 13 cm (5 in.), and then using both handles to lift the hopper vertically out of the notches in the mounting brackets:

  • No tools are required.
  • There is nothing to disconnect.

When the hopper is removed from the tractor, it allows use of additional tractor features including:

  • Optional rear deflector
  • Optional mulch plug
  • Rear implement hitch
  • Tow-release lever
Interlock switches make the operator and others safer

Operator mowing with X167R Tractor

Brake pedal and parking brake lock

Safety-interlock switches are designed to help protect the operator and others. The operator must be in the seat to start or operate the tractor. The brake pedal must be depressed or the parking brake set for the tractor engine to start.

Hopper-installed sensor switch

When the hopper is removed, a safety interlock switch prevents the mower deck from operating unless the rear deflector or mulch plug is installed. However, the engine will run and the tractor will operate so the rear hitch can be used.
