    Hi,

    I just purchased a Mini Z 52 last week. Felt like this is a solid machine and should serve me well for years to come. My one question is the following:

    Should I engage the blade at FULL or HALF throttle? I would like to minize the wear on my PTO clutch.

    Thanks in advance and glad to join the family!

    Welcome to the family !!
    Half is always best, but the engine will need to be warmed up for it to engage.
    You may have to choke the engine a bit when doing this.
