Looks a little strange. I wonder if the wheel/axle assemblies are supposed to be mounted behind, and turned in, rather than outboard, turned out?

I have been told that it can be run either way. I sort of like it this way since I mostly mow pasture and it makes hitching easy (you can tip the mower on this balance point easily to hitch it). We use smaller mowers for around buildings and stuff.

Takes a lot more room to turn it with the wheels out the back and then, you need a Jack to lift the front.. I tried both and opted for the "Wheels beside", myself..

One thing..(if you don't know) about engaging the PTO.. ALWAYS be stopped, then engage the Transmission FIRST, then the PTO ( so you never grind those TO Gears).. They are fragile..! Ron..

Very good advice that I thankfully did already know (thanks to a helpful local). Stop. Put in gear. Then engage PTO.

However, what is the proper sequence for shutting down the PTO? I'm afraid I'm a bit fuzzy on that part.
