Safety is a primary concern in the design and  
manufacture of our products. Unfortunately, our  
efforts to provide safe equipment can be wiped  
out by an operator’s single careless act.  
Make sure shields and guards are properly  
installed and in good condition. Replace if damaged.  
In addition to the design and configuration of  
equipment, hazard control and accident preven-  
tion are dependent upon the awareness, con-  
cern, judgement, and proper training of  
personnel involved in the operation, transport,  
maintenance, and storage of equipment.  
Inspect and clear area of stones, branches, or  
other hard objects that might be thrown, causing  
injury or damage.  
It has been said, “The best safety device is an  
informed, careful operator.” We ask you to be  
that kind of operator.  
You may not be able to stop the tractor safely if  
the clutch or brake pedal mechanisms are improp-  
erly adjusted, allowing them to contact mower  
When the mower lift stops are installed as  
instructed in this manual, properly adjusted clutch  
and brake pedal mechanisms will not contact  
mower components. You should frequently check  
that the tractor clutch and brake pedal mechanisms  
are in adjustment.  
Safety instructions are important! Read all  
attachment and power unit manuals; follow all  
safety rules and safety decal information. (Replace-  
ment manuals and safety decals are available from  
your dealer. To locate your nearest dealer, check

rear of mower to provide a closer cutting. Mowing with  
the front end high will produce ragged cuts with a scal-

Alway wear relatively tight and belted clothing  
to avoid entanglement in moving parts. Wear  
sturdy, rough-soled work shoes and protective  
equipment for eyes, hands, hearing and head.  
Attitude Adjustment (Figure 1)  
Woods model 59, L59, and L306 series mowers are  
equipped with suction-type blades which make them  
ideal for finish mowing large areas of lawn. The  
machine should be run level when mowing, and the  
uncut area should be kept to the left side (right side on  
left-handed machine). This prevents a small windrow  
that might otherwise occur.  
For best mowing results, dimension “A” should not be  
more than 1/2" higher, and never lower, than dimension  
Dimension “B” is set by adjusting casters, gauge  
wheels, or lift chains.  
Dimension “A” is set by raising or lowering push chan-  
nel arms in idler bracket.  
With certain types of grass and under certain seasonal  
conditions, the front caster wheels may roll the grass  
down enough that it will not come all the way back up  
and will not be cut as short as the surrounding area.  
This may appear to be a streak left by the spindle, but it  
is not. The only solution, under these conditions, is to  
carry the weight of the machine on the lift chains with  
the caster wheels adjusted up so they carry the weight  
when riding a high ridge or high spot.  
Any adjustment to either dimension “A” or “B”  
will require adjustment to the other.  
Check cutting height and attitude by placing a straight  
edge along the outside edge of the mower frame as  
shown in Figure 1.  
Measure from the bottom edge of the straight edge at  
the front and rear at least 32" apart. The front measure-  
ment should be approximately 1/2" lower than the rear.  
To determine cutting height, it is necessary to subtract  
the distance the blade is below mower frame from the  
front measurement. On the L59, the blade is 4-5/8"  
below the mower frame. On the L306, it is 4-7/8" below.  
Operate the tractor at full governed rpm when doing  
normal mowing. If the forward speed is too high, a  
lower gear can be used.  
When checking cutting height, be sure to take mea-  
surements on both sides of the mower. Be sure the  
mower is level from side to side using these measure-  
Height Adjustment (Without Casters)  
The mower is raised or lowered and the mowing height  
is maintained by the tractor hydraulic system.  
Set the hydraulic control lever stop for the desired  
mowing level. Adjust the side skids so that they just  
When changes are made to cutting height or attitude,  
be sure to check belt alignment and tension.

Figure 1. Attitude Adjustment  
Improper belt alignment or tension can cause  
premature belt failure.  
Figure 2. Proper Belt Tension  
Grease caster pivot and wheel every 8 hours of opera-  
tion. There are grease fittings on each of the three  
blade spindles. These are accessible without shield  
removal. Grease every 24 hours of operation with a  
good grade light to medium grease gun.  
Alignment must be rechecked if it is necessary  
to move idler pulleys to get proper belt tension.  
Tension on a new belt should be readjusted  
every half hour for the first two hours and then  
checked every eight hours of operation.  
Do not over grease spindles. Excess grease  
could be transferred to the belt and cause slippage  
or premature failure.  
Side shield and discharge chute are provided for dis-  
charge end of mower (left end on white frames and  
right end on yellow frames). Use side shield for normal  
mowing and in areas where other persons may be  
present. Use discharge chute for very heavy mowing  
Set belt tension using a spring scale or other force  
measuring device. Remove left belt shield. Attach scale  
between cutter and left pulley. Apply between three  
and four pounds of force. Belt deflection should mea-  
sure 5/16" for normal conditions.  
Always use either side shield or discharge  
Tension may be increased if necessary to prevent belt  
from slipping in heavy mowing conditions.  
When checking tension without a force measuring  
device, the belt, when properly set, should feel very  
Optional equipment available includes casters for cut-  
ting height control, front roller to minimize scalping, low  
and extra suction blades, and a leaf mulcher. Low suc-  
tion blades are for sandy areas where abrasive action  
could cause excessive blade wear. Extra suction  
blades are designed to lift up fragile downed grasses  
for better cutting results and are also recommended for  
use with Woods leaf mulcher attachment.  
Cycle belt through at least two revolutions after any  
adjustment before checking tension. These belts are  
very strong and need to be adjusted very tight. Belts  
are more likely to be damaged by excessive slippage  
then from being overtightened.  
Belt must not rub deck or crosswise support.  
Mower spindle assemblies are equipped with two  
tapered roller bearings. Bearing adjustment is held by a  
roll pin. Adjustment should not be necessary. Repair  
requires special skills and tools. You may save time  
and money by using a new spindle assembly.  
Tension adjustments may be made by moving the idler  
pulleys up or down.  
Keep blades sharp for a good mowing job. Sharpen  
both ends of the blade the same amount to maintain  
balance. Do not sharpen blade to a razor edge, but

leave a 1/16" blunt edge. Do not sharpen back side of  
blade. When replacing blades, do not substitute any  
bolt for the special Nylok blade bolt. The Nylock bolt is  
self-locking, meeting the non-loosening requirements  
for this application.  
On mowers with white frames, the blade bolts  
have left hand threads.  
Both 59 and 306 mowers use cup washers under  
blades. These washers will burn and lose their clamp-  
ing force if excess slippage occurs. Inspect and replace  
as necessary. The L306 mower incorporates a friction  
clutch disc which is designed to slip only when striking  
a solid object. Should blade slip during mowing, tighten  
by adding thin shim washers over bushing, between  
top cup washer and blade, until blades will hold desired  
load. Blade bolts should be torqued to 170 lbs-ft.  
Figure 3. Use of Straight Edge (Side View)  
Assemble as shown on mower decal. If not installed  
correctly, more twist will result than is allowable.  
How to Align a Twisted Belt  
Belt whip is caused by belt misalignment unless mower  
is driven by a rough-running or 2-cylinder engine.  
Right: Inside edge of belt are approximately lined up  
with the sheave.  
Proper position of L59 and L306: Adjust mower for-  
ward and back to such a position that the rear take-up  
idlers are near the bottom of their slots when the belt  
lines up with the proper groove in the center pulley and  
is tight. Never run the idlers high in the slots as this will  
cause misalignment.  
It is assumed that the mower is adjusted to run approx-  
imately level. If the front of the mower is down, the  
idlers will have to be raised. If the back of the mower is  
down, the idlers will have to be down further. Belts  
must be in proper alignment with sheave grooves as  
shown in Figure 4 and Figure 5.  
Figure 4  
Wrong: Outer edge of belt appears to be in line.  
PTO pulleys must be moved in or out to cause the belt  
to be in alignment with the idlers.  
Belt Tension: Run belts very tight. Present belt  
designs are much stronger than we are accustomed to  
and will stand more tension. Slipping will heat and ruin  
a belt but tension is not harmful. You can minimize the  
amount of change in belt length as mower is raised and  
lowered by keeping the rear idlers adjusted to a low

Center Shield  
To allow more lift on tractors with minimum ground  
clearance, such as Fords, IH LoBoy, Kubotas, Satohs,  
etc., a center belt shield is not offered. Refer to  
page 24. If the box of parts has a center belt shield, bolt  
center belt shield bracket (34) to deck with 3/8 x 1" bolt.  
Bolt center shield (10) to bolts welded in deck and  
bracket (34).  
If casters are used, see page 27 or page 28, except for  
the L59 mower on Ford 1000, 1600, 1700, 1900, and  
Satoh S650. (See mounting frame drawing in manual.)  
L306 caster assembly will not fit on IH424, 2424, 444,  
2444, 454 and 2400; John Deere 1010 & 1020; Deutz  
2506, 3006 and other tractors with swept back front  
axle as they will hit front tires. Caster wheels cannot be  
used on GM4 mounting.  
To provide clearance between tractor muffler and left  
belt shield on L306, see page 24.  
L306 Casters  
Side Skids  
On Ford 8N, Massey 135, Deutz 4006, IH 354, and  
2300 with straight front axle, etc., the right caster  
should be put on side angle, bolting it over side shield  
and between side angle and right skid. Left caster  
should attach to short bar on deck so casters will be  
inside of left front tire. Left front tractor tire should be  
moved out to clear caster wheel. On Ford 1000, Kubota  
tractors, etc., both arms will bolt to the outer deck rails.  
Caster wheels cannot be used on GM4 mounting.  
Bolt skids in such a position that they will be carried  
close to the ground, but so they do not ride continually  
on the ground when mower is operated at desired  
mowing height.  
On 59’s, use 3/8 x 1" heat-treated bolts (torque to 35  
lbs-ft), lock washer and nuts. On L306’s, use 1/2 x  
1-1/4" heat treated bolts, lock washers and nuts.  
Front Toe Guard  
Front Roller Assembly Instructions  
Refer to page 24. Front toe guards (6) are furnished for  
some mowers. When provided, bolt them to the front of  
the mower, using 3/8 NC x 3/4" carriage bolts and 3/8"  
flange lock nuts. (NOTE: On 59 and L59 where casters  
are installed on outer deck rails, bolt toe guards to  
mower so outer ends are about 2" in from end of deck.  
Otherwise, end of toe guard will be about 1/2" in from  
end of deck.) End of L306 toe guard will be 3/4" in from  
end of deck.  
Refer to page 24. On 59 mowers, put item (28) on left  
side and item (27) on right side of mower using 3/8"  
carriage bolts and nuts.  
On L306 mowers, item (28) goes on right side and item  
(27) on left. This will put the highest hole in brackets  
rearward on 59 and the next to the highest hole rear-  
ward on L306.  
Assemble roller and roller rod (26) in rear holes in  
brackets (27 & 28). Secure with 3/16" cotter pins. Turn  
roller by hand to see that it turns freely.  
Crosswise Rear Support  
Refer to page 24. Install bushing (16) into center hole  
in crosswise rear support and bolt it to back of mower  
deck with short bar forward and offset up using 1/2 x 2"  
hex head cap screw and 1/2" flange lock nut. NOTE:  
On L59, L306F10-2, “S”, JD85, JD95, and GM4 mount-  
ings, a special crosswise rear support is provided. If  
tractor is equipped with turf tires, use upper center hole  
in crosswise support, and for Ag tires, use lower hole.  
See mounting frame drawing in those manuals.  
Refer to page 18.  
Idler & Mounting Bracket Assembly

Slide idler bracket (6) between tractor wheel housings,  
with idler slides rearward, and bolt to the center set of  
holes in rear wheel housings, using holes in idler  
Channel Arms  
Use two 7/16" thick shims at each front hole between  
the end plates and the tractor wheel housings. If nec-  
essary, also use 5/8" flat washers. Assembly using  
either 1/2" or 5/8 x 2-1/4 bolts and lock washers.  
Refer to page 24. Slide mower under tractor. Attach  
channel arms (12) to mower frame using 5/8 x 1-1/2"

and idler bracket. Install 5/8 x 2-1/2 carriage bolt  
through slot and idler, and secure with 5/8" nut and lock  
longer chain (17), and secure by installing 3/16" safety  
pin (16) through end of link in chain (15).  
Adjust chains so the mower raises level without pulling  
sideways or hitting rear tires. Also adjust chain so  
mower does not hit bottom of tractor or tires when fully  
Install a 5/8 x 3" bolt through second idler. Put these  
5/8" flat washers over bolt, and install assembly to right  
side of rear vertical slot in idler bracket. Secure with a  
5/8" flat washer and nut.  
Check to make sure the lift triangle does not hit the  
tractor starter. If it does, use washers to shim lift trian-  
gle or lift support frame away from tractor.  
After drive belt has been installed, install rear belt  
shield (19) over bolt installed in rear idler and secure  
with another 5/8" nut and two 5/8" flat washers.  
If manual height adjustment is used, refer to page 22.  
Drive Sheave  
Tractor Wheel Adjustment  
Remove paint from bore of drive sheave. Install large  
drive sheave onto tractor belt pulley shaft using tractor  
key and nut. A flat washer is provided to be installed  
between nut and sheave. If your tractor has a tapered  
shaft which is too small for this sheave (made prior to  
1939), it will be necessary to install a late model belt  
pulley shaft (AC part 208959) or to build up the old  
shaft with shims or weld to fit.  
On model “B” tractors, the right tire may be fully  
extended and the mower will cut beyond it, but the left  
rear tire must be moved in if the mower is to cut clear.  
For model “C” tractors, the right tire must be put within  
four inches of its most inward position for the mower to  
cut beyond the tire track. With the left tire in its most  
inward position, the mower will still not quite cut  
beyond the tire track.  
Belt Assembly and Adjustment
