How to Mow
K
1.
Start mowing the edge of the lawn nearest to the
power point so the cable is laid out on the lawn you
have already cut. (K)
2. Cut your grass twice a week during the growing season, your lawn will suffer if more than a third of its
length is cut at one time.
Do Not Overload Your Mower
Mowing long thick grass may cause the motor speed to
drop, you will hear a change in the motor sound. If the
motor speed drops you may overload your lawnmower
which may cause damage. When mowing in long thick
grass a first cut with the cutting height set higher will help
reduce the load. See Adjusting the Cutting Height.
