I think Bobcat now owns the old Ransome business. You might try asking them If they can locate a manual.

Call 866-469-1242 and ask for the Tech Service Department. Give them your model number and they will send your manual. They are working on getting all the old manuals setup on line but aren't quite there yet. If you are looking for parts, you can look up on line at www.bobcaturf.com. They have a electronic parts look up online that anyone can use.
