should be checked regularly for signs of wear or damage. Ensure
that the cutterblade is not bent or cracked.
Cutterblade Removal
A damaged cutterblade that is out of balance will vibrate
excessively and may break. DO NOT use an unbalanced
cutterblade.
To prevent injury it is wise to seek assistance before turning the
mower on its side.
Regularly check that the bolt securing the cutterblade is tightened
to the specified torque of 54 Nm.
Drain the fuel by running the engine until the fuel tank is empty
and the engine stops. Remove the spark plug lead and allow the
engine to cool. When tipping the machine, ensure that the spark
plug is kept uppermost.
Replace the cutterblade every 2 years or sooner if excessively
worn or damaged.
Cutterblade Assembly
Firmly grip the end of the cutterblade (4) with a gloved hand
and remove bolt (1), spring washer (2) and distance piece (3)
securing the cutterblade with a 9/16” A/F spanner.
(Refer fig. 30)
Assemble the cutterblade with the turned up edges facing
towards the engine. Secure the cutterblade (4) using the bolt (1),
spring washer (2) and distance piece (3).
(Refer fig. 30)
To prevent accidents never work on the cutterblade unless
the spark plug lead has been removed. The cutterblade has
sharp edges. ALWAYS wear strong work gloves to protect
your hands when working on the cutterblade. DO NOT
rotate tools towards the cutting edges to avoid the risk of
Cutterblade Sharpening

A slightly worn cutterblade may be re-sharpened. Both blade
edges must be sharpened equally to ensure balance.

Sharpen the cutterblade every 25 mowing hours or more
frequently if conditions require. Remove the cutterblade from
the mower and clean using a brush and water.
Inspect the cutterblade for signs of damage.
Sharpen both cutting edges with a flat file to restore
performance.
(Refer fig.31)
Ensure that the cutterblade is balanced. Use a screw
driver with a round shaft to support the cutterblade through its
centre hole. Hold the cutterblade horizontal and then release. A
balanced cutterblade will remain horizontal.
(Refer fig.32)
If the cutterblade is not balanced the heavy end will rotate
downwards. Sharpen the heavy end until the cutterblade is
correctly balanced.
(Refer fig.33
Blade Brake Test
With the engine stop OPC lever away from the handlebar in the
stop position; gently try to pull the engine start cord. The cord
should be difficult to pull. If it is too easy to pull, the engine
brake is not working correctly. Do not use the mower, have it
repaired by your Hayter dealer.
MOWER MAINTENANCE
exceed the stated volume of oil as engine damage may occur
on re-starting. Do not replace the spark plug lead. Slowly
pull the engine start-grip once to crank the engine. This will
distribute the oil and help prevent engine corrosion.
Storage
Ensure that the cables do not become trapped at the pivot points
when collapsing the mower for storage.
To store the handlebar unscrew the 2 small securing knobs
sufficiently to allow it to be pivoted forward to rest against the
mower.
Take care to ensure that the control cables do not become
snagged at the pivot point and depress the engine stop lever to
prevent it being damaged through contact with the engine.
(Refer fig.34)
•
Clean grass and debris from the engine cylinder, cylinder
head cooling fins, under top cowl, around and behind
exhaust / exhaust guard and ensure that the grassbag is
clean.
•
Lubricate the mower and treat metal parts with a water
repellent anti-corrosion product.
•
Cover the mower with a protective sheet and store it in a
dry, ventilated area.
Engines stored in excess of 30 days need to be protected with
Briggs & Stratton fuel additive or drained of fuel to prevent gum
from forming in the fuel system or on essential carburettor parts.
To ensure your mower is maintained in good working order it is
important that the following procedure is adopted. Refer to the
Maintenance section as necessary.
•
Drain fuel from the engine by operating the engine until it
stops.
•
Disconnect the spark plug lead.
•
Change the engine oil.
•
Remove the engine spark plug and pour 15ml of engine oil
into the engine cylinder and replace the spark plug. Do not

LAWN CARE CALENDAR To be used as a guide only
January
August
There is very little work to do this month apart from brushing away leaves. Keep off the grass
if frozen or waterlogged.
Keep mowing regularly and watering as necessary. Fill any cracks caused by drought with a
mixture of sharp sand and soil. In dry weather conditions leave the grass longer to help retain
ground moisture.
February
September
Rake the grass thoroughly. Spike the lawn to aerate and stimulate soil organisms and root
growth and apply lawn sand if necessary.
Raise the height of cut to allow the grass to thicken and protect the roots from the winter frost
and snow.
March
October
The yearly lawn work programme really starts this month. As soon as the ground conditions
are suitable, the first cut can be made. The first cut should merely “top” the grass as close
cutting at this stage could result in severe yellowing or browning. Two cuts are generally
sufficient this month.
Rake out the thatch from the turf and spike the lawn to assist in drainage. Brush in peat and
sharp sand.
November
April
Use a stiff broom to disperse worm casts before mowing. Keep turf free from leaves.
Mow often enough to stop grass growing away. Dig out patches of coarse grass or resistant
weed. Re-seed bare patches.
December
Apart from brushing away leaves, December is a slack end of a busy year. Keep off the lawn
if it is very wet or frozen.
May
Keep mowing increasing the frequency as required. Treat with selective weed killers or
combined weed/feed preparations if you did not feed the lawn in April.
Lawn Stripes
The way to achieve a neat striped effect is for the lawn being cut in parallel stripes, alternate
stripes being mown in opposite directions. A much more important routine is to cut at right
angles to the line of the previous mowing. If the work has been carried in a north-south line,
then the next cutting should be in an east-west direction. The cross-cutting keeps down the
coarse weed grasses.
June
Summer mowing should now be under way. It should be necessary to mow the lawn twice a
week. Raking before mowing is important this month as the combined action keeps runners
of clover under control. Water the grass if necessary, and remember to soak thoroughly.
To prevent grass damage do not remove more than one third of the grass height in one
cut.
July
Treat the grass with the second application of fertiliser or weed killer/fertiliser. Water when
necessary and rake occasionally. As a general rule the grass clippings should be removed
each time you mow. If weather conditions are dry and hot and the grass is weed free, leave
the clippings on the lawn to help maintain ground moisture.
