How to Start a Zero-Turn Lesco Lawn Mower


The Lesco Z-Two Zero-Turn Radius Mower provides a maneuverable option for mowing around tight spaces with ease. With a top speed of 10 miles per hour and a fuel capacity of 13 gallons, large spaces are coverable in a short period of time. The mower comes with a 12-volt electric starter to begin the ignition process.

  • Put on protective safety glasses and safety shoes as recommended by Lesco. Avoid wearing loose-fitting clothing.

  • Position yourself on the mower and locate the engine ignition and start switch which are found in the instrument panel below the right side of the seat.

  • Insert the Lesco mower key into the ignition and turn clockwise at a 45-degree angle. This puts the ignition circuit into a closed position.

  • Check to make sure the blade clutch switch is in the "off" position, angled downward.

  • Engage the parking brake, which is found on the left side of the traction unit, by pulling the lever to the rear.

  • Place the left and right steering levers in the neutral position, opened outward.

  • Move the choke control, found on the instrument panel to the left of the driver's seat, forward.

  • Move the engine speed, found near the choke control, half-way forward.

  • Turn the ignition key clockwise so it moves beyond the 45-degree position into the "start" position. When the engine begins to run, release the key which should automatically return to the "run" position.

  • Move the choke backwards slowly until turned off.

Tips & Warnings

  • Lesco recommends thoroughly studying the operator's manual and controls before starting and using the mower.
  • If the engine is cold, it may be necessary to keep the choke partially engaged for several minutes. Once the engine is warm, release the choke.
