Allis-Chalmers YT9500 series Moving Parts
This equipment has many moving parts that can injure you or someone else. However, if you are seated in the seat properly and follow all the rules in this book, the unit is safe to operate. The mower deck has spinning mower blades that can amputate hands and feet. Do not allow anyone near the equipment while it is running! To help you, the operator, use this equipment safely, it is equipped with an operator-present safety system. Do NOT attempt to alter or bypass the system. See your dealer immediately if the system does not pass all the safety interlock system tests found in this manual.

Allis-Chalmers YT9500 Fuel and Maintenance 
Gasoline is extremely flammable. Its vapors are also extremely flammable and can travel to distant ignition sources. Gasoline must only be used as a fuel, not as a solvent or cleaner. Fuel should never be stored any place where its vapors can build up or travel to an ignition source like a pilot light. Fuel belongs in an approved, plastic, sealed gas can, or in the tractor fuel tank with the cap securely closed. Spilled fuel needs to be cleaned up immediately. Proper maintenance is critical to the safety and performance of your unit. Be sure to perform the maintenance procedures listed in this manual and be sure to periodically test the safety system.

Allis-Chalmers YT9500 SLOPE OPERATION
Slopes are a major factor related to loss-of-control and tip over accidents, which can result in severe injury or death. Operation on all slopes requires extra caution. If you cannot back up the slope or if you feel uneasy on it, do not operate on it. Control of a walk-behind or ride-on machine sliding on a slope will not be regained by the application of the brake. The main reasons for loss of control are: insufficient tire grip on the ground, speed too fast, inadequate braking, the type of machine is unsuitable for its task, lack of awareness of the ground conditions, incorrect hitching and load distribution.

What is Advanced Traction Control?
Advanced Traction Control (ATC) is an exclusive feature of our transmissions that provides improved traction. ATC applies a preset amount of torque to both rear wheels even if one starts slipping (a transmission without ATC will lose traction completely if one rear wheel starts slipping). This preset torque is just enough to provide additional traction, and still allow the wheels to turn at different speeds in a tight turn without damaging the lawn.

What to Expect from Your ATC Tractor?
For the most part, while using your tractor you will not notice ATC working, and you will simply become accustomed to increased traction an ATC transmission provides. Under certain circumstances the ATC system limit can be exceeded, and one of the rear wheels may slip (for instance if trying to turn up a hill while accelerating). This is normal. If you start to lose traction, do not speed up. Instead, slow to a stop, straighten the steering wheel, and slowly accelerate. Stopping the tractor allows the transmission to regain more traction.

Oil Recommendations
We recommend the use of Briggs & Stratton Warranty Certified oils for best performance. Other high-quality detergent oils are acceptable if classified for service SF,SG, SH, SJ or higher. Do not use special additives. Outdoor temperatures determine the proper oil viscosity for the engine. Use the chart to select the best viscosity for the outdoor temperature range expected.
