the vent tubes. Wash the top of the battery
with water to remove any acid, then wipe dry.
Check battery case for leakage to make sure
that no damage
has occured
in handling.
Neutralize excess battery acid for disposal by
adding it to four inches of water in a five gallon
plastic container.
Stir with a wooden or plastic
paddle while adding baking soda until the addition of more soda causes no mf_re foaming,
It is recommended
that the battery be charged before use. Use a 12 volt battery charger.

Check the a# pressure in the tires. Tires with too much
air pressure will cause the unit to ride rough. The wrong
air pressure will also keep the mower from cutting level.
The correct air pressure is shown on the side of the tires.

Blade Care
For best results mower blades must be kept sharp, The
blades can be sharpened
with a few strokes of a file, or
on a grinding wheel. We suggest they be sharpened after
every 25 hours of mowing.
Do not attempt
to sharpen
while on mower.
If you mow in sandy soft check the
blades after each two mowings.
The sand wears the
blade away rapidly.
a. Blade Replacement
Raise mower
to highest position
to permit access
to blades.
1. Remove the hex head bolt, Iockwasher
and
flat washer
(Fig. 11) (turn counterclock
wise) ( F_).
2.
Remove and discard old blade.

Clean top and bottom
