IMPORTANT: THIS CUTTING MACHINE IS CAPABLE OF AMPUTATING HANDS AND FEET AND THROWING OBJECTS. FAILURE
TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
I. GENERAL
•
OPERATION
Read, understand, and follow all instructions on the
machine and in the manual(s) before starting. Be thoroughly familiar with the controls and the proper use of
the machine before starting.
DO NOT:
•
Do not trim near drop-offs, ditches or embankments.
The operator could lose footing or balance.
•
Do not trim excessively steep slopes.
•
Do not mow on wet grass. Reduced footing could cause
slipping.
•
Do not put hands or feet near or under rotating parts.
Keep clear of the discharge opening at all times.
•
Only allow responsible individuals, who are familiar
with the instructions, to operate the machine.
•
Clear the area of objects such as rocks, toys, wire,
bones, sticks, etc., which could be picked up and thrown
by the blade.
Tragic accidents can occur if the operator is not alert to
the presence of children. Children are often attracted to
the machine and the mowing activity. Never assume that
children will remain where you last saw them.
•
Be sure the area is clear of other people before mowing. Stop machine if anyone enters the area.
•
•
Do not operate the mower when barefoot or wearing
open sandals. Always wear substantial foot wear.
•
•
Do not pull mower backwards unless absolutely necessary. Always look down and behind before and while
moving backwards.
•
Before and while walking backwards, look behind and
down for small children.
•
Never allow children to operate the machine.
•
Do not operate the mower without proper guards,
plates, grass catcher or other safety protective devices
in place.
•
Use extra care when approaching blind corners, sh rubs,
trees, or other objects that may obscure vision.
•
See manufacturer's instructions for proper operation
and installation of accessories. Only use accessories
approved by the manufacturer.
II1. CHILDREN
IV. SERVICE

•
Mow only in daylight or good artificial light.
•
Do not operate the machine while under the influence
of alcohol or drugs.
•
Never operate machine in wet grass. Always be sure of
your footing: keep a firm hold on the handle and walk;
never run.
•
Disengage the self-propelled mechanism or drive clutch
on mowers so equipped before starting the engine (motor).
Keep children out of the trimming area and under the
watchful care of another responsible adult.
Be alert and turn machine off if children enter the
a rea.
Never make adjustments or repairs with the engine
(motor) running. Disconnect the spark plug wire, and
keep the wire away from the plug to prevent accidental
starting.
•
Keep nuts and bolts, especially blade attachement
bolts, tight and keep equipment in good condition.
•
Never tamper with safety devices. Check their proper
operation regularly.
•
If the equipment should start to vibrate abnormally,
stop the engine (motor) and check immediately for the
cause. Vibration is generally a warning of trouble.
•
Keep machine free of grass, leaves, or other debris
build-up. Clean oil or fuel spillage. Allow machine to
cool before storing.
•

•
Grass catcher components are subject to wear, damage, and deterioration, which could expose moving
parts or allow objects to be thrown. Frequently check
components and replace with manufacturer's recommended parts, when necessary.
•
Mower blades are sharp and can cut. Wrapthe blade(s)
or wear gloves, and use extra caution when servicing
them.
II. SLOPE
OPERATION
Slopes are a major factor related to slip and fall accidents
which can result in severe injury. All slopes require extra
caution. If you feel uneasy on a slope, do not mow it.
DO:
•
Mowacross the face of slopes: never up and down. Exercise extreme caution when changing direction on slopes.
•
Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree limbs, etc.
•
Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps. Tall grass can hide
obstacles.
Do not change the engine governor setting oroverspeed

Be sure lawnmower is level.
2.
Remove oil dipstick from oil fill spout.
3.
You receive a container of oil with the unit. Slowly
pour the entire container down the oil fill spout into the
engine.
CAUTION: Wipe off any spilled oil or
fuel. Do not store, spill or use gasoline
near an open flame.
Alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol
or using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture which leads to separation
and formation of acids during storage.
Acidic gas can damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage. To
avoid engine problems, the fuel system
should be emptied before storage of
30 days or longer. Empty the gas tank,
start the engine and let it run until the
fuel lines and carburetor are empty. Use
fresh fuel next season. See Storage
Instructions for additional information.
Never use engine or carburetor cleaner
products in the fuel tank or permanent
damage may occur.
4. Insert and tighten dipstick.
IMPORTANT:
Check oil level before each use. Add oil if needed. Fill
to full line on dipstick.
Change the oil after every 25 hours of operation or each
season. You may need to change the oil more often
under dusty, dirty conditions. See "TO CHANGE ENGINE OIL:' in the Maintenance section of this manual.
OIL FILLER CAP/DIPSTICK
(See Fig. 8)
Fill fuel tank to bottom of tank filler neck. Do not overfill. Use fresh, clean, regular unleaded gasoline with
a minimum of 87 octane. Do not mix oil with gasoline.
Purchase fuel in quantities that can be used within 30
days to assure fuel freshness.

MOWING TIPS
IMPORTANT: FOR BEST PERFORMANCE, KEEP MOWER
HOUSING FREE OF BUILT-UP GRASS AND TRASH. SEE
"CLEANING" IN THE MAINTENANCE SECTION OF THIS
MANUAL.
•
The special mulching blade will recut the grass clippings many times and reduce them in size so that as
they fall onto the lawn they will disperse into the grass
and not be noticed. Also, the mulched grass will biodegrade quickly to provide nutrients for the lawn. Always
mulch with your highest engine (blade) speed as this
will provide the best recutting action of the blades.
•
Avoid cutting your lawn when it is wet. Wet grass tends
to form clumps and interferes with the mulching action.
The best time to mow your lawn is the early afternoon.
At this time the grass has dried, yet the newly cut area
will not be exposed to direct sunlight.
•
For best results, adjust the lawn mower cutting height
so that the lawn mower cuts off only the top one-third
of the grass blades (See Fig. 10). If the lawn is overgrown it will be necessary to raise the height of cut to
reduce pushing effort and to keep from overloading
the engine and leaving clumps of mulched grass. For
extremely heavy mulching, reduce your width of cut by
overlapping previously cut path and mow slowly.
LEVER
FIG. 9
MOWING TIPS
•
Under certain conditions, such as very tall grass, it
may be necessary to raise the height of cut to reduce
pushing effort and to keep from overloading the engine
and leaving clumps of grass clippings. It may also be
necessaryto reduce ground speed and/or run the lawn
mower over the area a second time.
•
For extremely heavy cutting, reduce the width of cut
by overlapping previously cut path and mow slowly.
•
For better grass bagging and most cutting conditions,
the engine speed should be set in the fast position.
•
Pores in cloth grass catchers can become filled with
dirt and dust with use and catchers will collect less
grass. To prevent this, regularly hose catcher off with
water and let dry before using.
•
Keep top of engine around starter clear and clean of
grass clippings and chaff. This will help engine air flow
and extend engine life.
MAXI_
FIG. 10
•
Certain types of grass and grass conditions may require
that an area be mulched a second time to completely
hide the clippings. When doing a second cut, mow
across (perpendicular) to the first cut path.
•
Change your cutting pattern from week to week. Mow
north to south one week then change to east to west the
next week. This will help prevent matting and graining
of the lawn.

NEXT OIL CHANGE
Multi-viscosity oils (5W30, 10W30 etc.)improve
in cold weather, and you should check your engine
frequently to avoid possible engine damage from
low on oil.
AIR FILTER
Your engine will not run properly and may be damaged
by using a dirty air filter. Replace the air filter every 100
hours of operation or every season, whichever occurs first.
Service air cleaner more often under dusty conditions. See
the maintenance section of your engine manual.
Change the oil after every 25 hours of operation or at least
once a year if the lawn mower is not used for 25 hours in
one year.
Check the crankcase oil level before starting the engine
and after each five (5) hours of continuous use. Tighten oil
plug securely each time you check the oil level.
