Read the operating instructions carefully. Familiarise yourself with
the proper use of the machine.
People under 16 or people who have not read the operating
instructions are not allowed to use the machine.
Do not operate the machine when there are others, in particular
children or animals, in the area. The person using the machine is
responsible for third parties in the working area of the machine.
The person using the machine is responsible for accidents
involving other people or their property.
Please keep these operating instructions for later use.
The lawn tractor does not have approval according to the Highway
Code. You are therefore not allowed to drive on public ways and
roads with it.
Never mow on slopes with an inclination of more than 10° (18%).
No passengers may be transported on the machine.
2.
Preparations
The combustion engine may not be operated in enclosed rooms in
which dangerous fumes can collect - danger of poisoning!
Only mow your lawn in daylight or in good illumination. Please
observe any local directives about when you are allowed to use the
machine (see operating times for lawn tractors).
Before starting the machine, switch off the mowing appliance, put
the drive into neutral and operate the parking brake.
Please remember that there are no "safe slopes". Mowing slopes
with a lawn requires special attention. In order to protect yourself
against tipping over, you should:
– not stop or start suddenly if you are moving up or down the
slope,
– suppress the clutch slowly, leave the clutch depressed, in parti
cular when driving down the slope,
– keep the speed low on slopes and in tight bends,
– pay special attention to hills, recesses and other invisible
dangers,
– never mow transverse to the slope if it has an inclination of more
than 10°.
Always pay attention to road traffic when you are crossing roads or
working in the vicinity of roads.
When driving the tractor, pay attention to low-hanging obstacles
(branches, washing lines etc.) which can injure the driver.
Switch the mowing appliance off when driving off the lawn, lift it to
the highest cutting position.
Never operate lawn tractors with a damaged housing or defective
protective devices (e.g. grass box etc.).
Before leaving the driver's seat:
– switch the mowing appliance off and wait until the blades come
to a standstill,
– switch the engine off and remove the ignition key.
Disengage the drive, turn the engine off and pull out the spark plug
connector or the ignition key
– before eliminating blockages or obstructions in the discharge
channel
– before checking or cleaning the mower or doing any other work
on it
– if a foreign body is hit. Look for damage to the machine and
have the necessary repairs done before you start it again;
– if the mower starts to vibrate unusually severely, an
immediate check is necessary.
– whenever you leave the mower unattended or transport it
– before filling up with petrol
– before removing the grass box.
The basic setting of the engine in the factory is correct and must
not be altered.
Start and operate the starting switch carefully (see Chapter
"Starting the engine"). Make sure that your feet are at a safe
distance from the blade.
Do not tip the mower when starting or turning the engine on.
Do not start the engine if anyone is standing in front of the
discharge channel.
Keep your hands and feet out of the area of the rotating blade.
Keep other people away from the discharge channel when the
blade is rotating.
Never use a lawn tractor with a rear discharge without a grass box
or a vapour discharge.

2.1 Always wear sturdy shoes and long trousers while mowing. Never
go barefoot or wear open sandals.
2.2 Completely check the area on which the machine is to be used and
remove any stones, sticks, wires, bones and other foreign objects.
Always watch out for foreign objects when mowing.
2.3 – Petrol is to be poured in before starting the engine.
WARNING! Petrol is highly flammable!
– Only keep petrol in the containers designed for this purpose.
– Only fill the machine in the open and do not smoke when filling
the machine.
– The tank may not be opened or petrol topped up while the engi
ne is running or when the machine is hot.
– If petrol has been spilt, do not start the engine. Instead, remove
the mower from the area contaminated with petrol. The spilt pe
trol must be sucked or wiped off the engine and the housing with
a cloth. No attempts at ignition may be made until the vapours
have disappeared.
– Use a funnel or a filling tube when pouring in petrol so that no
fuel can leak onto the engine or onto the lawn.
– For safety reasons, replace the tank lid and the petrol tank if they
are damaged.
2.4 The exhaust and the area around the exhaust can reach
temperatures of up to 80°.
ATTENTION: danger of burning!
Replace damaged silencers.
2.5 Before use, always make a visual check to see if the blade, the
fastening bolts or the entire cutting unit are worn or damaged. In
order to avoid an imbalance, worn or damaged blades must be
replaced with new ones.
2.6 Ensure that the movement of one blade can lead to rotations of the
other blades when mowing with more than one blade.
2.7 An examination by an expert is necessary if the machine stops
immediately, e.g. after impact with an obstacle (damage to the drive
shaft, bent blades etc.).

FIRST OPERATION
Starter battery
As a matter of principle, the starter battery is charged ex works. Should
starting problems nevertheless occur, the battery must be charged
before the first operation of the lawn tractor.
The lawn tractor may only be put into operation when
the assembly has been completed.
During the operation, the starter battery is charged by the engine. Under
normal conditions, re-charging will only be necessary after longer
periods without use (longer than 3 months).
Safety systems
Charging the starter battery: see "Maintenance and Service".
The lawn tractor is fitted with 3 safety contacts which are operated
by
a)
the driver's seat
b)
the grass box and
c)
the pedal.
We recommend charging this maintenance-free and gas-tight
battery with a charging device specifically suited for this (can be
purchased from specialist dealers).
If a different charging device is used, the charging current may not
exceed 5 A and the charging voltage 14.4 V. If there is a higher
charging voltage, there is a danger of the starter battery exploding.
The engine can only be started if
The starter battery is recyclable.
the driver is sitting on the driver's seat, the brake has been
operated and the mowing appliance has been switched off.
Used and defective starter batteries must not be disposed of via
domestic refuse. Your dealer, the manufacturer of the device or the local
battery collection points (pay attention to the local directives) will assure
proper disposal of these batteries.
The engine is automatically switched off if
a)
the driver gets off without operating the brake
b)
the driver gets off with the mowing appliance still running
c)
the grass box is opened or removed with the mowing appliance
still running.

4th and 5th gear are reserved for driving without mowing.
Setting the cutting height
40
The blades are raised and lowered with the position
lever to the right of the driver's seat.
Six height settings with a cutting height between 30 and
90 mm are possible.
Allow the position lever to engage at the height
adjustment position required.
Adjustment of the cutting height can be done both at a
standstill and also during movement.
IMPORTANT:
Set the highest cutting height:
In a normal case, the cutting height is about 4-5 cm. This corresponds to
the 2nd/3rd position of the height adjustment. Cut moist or wet grass with
a higher cutting height.
The best thing to do with very long grass is to cut it twice. For the first
cut, set the machine to max. cutting height and set it to the required
height for the second cut.
