will be
discharged away from shrubs, fences, driveways,

blades can be sharpened with a few strokes of a file or on
a grinding wheel We suggest they be sharpened after
every24 hours of mowing. Do not attempt to sharpen while
on mower, ff you mow in sandy soil check the blades after
each two reDwings. The sand wears the blades away

When grinding, care should be taken to maintain blade balance and the blade should be

Fuel System
it is important to prevent gum deposits from forming
in essential fuel system parts such as the carburetor,
fuel filter, fuel hose, or tank during storage A/so,
experience indicates that alcohol blended fuels (ca/led
gasoho/ or using ethanol or methanol) can attract mois*
ture which leads to separation and formation of acids
during storage, Acidic gas can damage the fuel system
of an engine whi/e in storage_ To avoid engine ptoblems,
the fuel system shou/d be emptied before storage of 30
days or longer:
