    mower is operated by one of the PTO controls .... lower the housing , then engage the PTO switch .... drives off the front of the tractor via an electric clutch to the lower shaft ( and back thru to the mower drive shaft )

    pull the PTO knob out and push the "reset: button to start it ... if you get off the seat, the interlock should kill the PTO and depending on the model , the engine should die too. sit down quick enough and the motor should catch but the PTO will remain off till you push the reset button.

    the lifting and lowering is hydraulic ... check the rocker selector, left side of seat ... one position operates the front and middle arms ... the other operates the rear arms ...
