Operation
Tips on lawn care
Here are some tips to help you keep your lawn looking healthy and
ensure uniform growth:
• Frequent mowing promotes the growth of grass, resulting in
strong roots. If you seldom cut the grass, you will enhance the
development of high growing types of grass and weeds.
• Time mowings so you’re never removing more than one-third of
the total leaf surface (of a single grass blade) with each cutting.
• Avoid scalping grass, which is cutting it too short. A scalped
lawn is vulnerable to diseases and weed infestation. Grass that’s
consistently cut too short has a poorly developed root system.
• The normal height of a lawn is approx. 1.5” - 2.0”. Only one third
of the total height should be mown; therefore cut 2.5” - 3.5” long
grass to normal height.
• Try not to cut the grass shorter than 1.5”, otherwise the lawn will
suffer during dry periods.
• If the grass has grown particularly high (for example, during a
holiday period), cut it back to its normal height in several stages.
• When mowing, always overlap the mown swaths slightly.
• Keep your mower blade sharp to get the best results from each
mowing. A sharp blade cuts grass cleanly, while a dull blade tears
grass, creating a jagged, uneven edge.
• Adjust mower height throughout the growing season. For
instance, shift the cutting deck higher in summer and allow grass
to grow longer. Taller grass helps shade soil, which prevents
weed growth and slows water evaporation from soil. Taller
grass also develops deeper roots, which creates a lawn that can
withstand drought better. In late autumn, in regions where winter
brings snow cover, lower the cutting deck for the last mowing of
the season to help prevent snow mold from forming on grass.
• Lawns that grow in shady areas benefit from a higher mowing
height.
• Ideally, mow when grass is dry. Mowing a wet lawn doesn’t harm
the grass, but it doesn’t yield the best results. Wet grass fills and
clogs a mower deck. It also has a tendency to fall over and clump
together as you mow, creating an uneven cut.
• Mow when the lawn is in shade. The act of mowing creates
tremendous stress on grass plants. If you mow during the heat
of the day, individual grass plants lose more water and recover
much more slowly than if you mow during a cooler part of the day.
• Avoid consistently mowing in the same direction. Alternating the
direction that the grass is cut helps promote a healthier lawn.

Maintenance
!
CAUTION
Before performing any maintenance on the lawn mower,
remove the battery.
Cleaning the Lawn Mower
Remove the battery. Remove the grass catcher. Do not use water or
liquid detergents. Whenever possible, always clean the unit directly
after mowing. After mowing, always clean the lawnmower with
a hand brush. Remove grass residues carefully out of the cutting
area. Remove stuck clipping deposits using a stiff brush. Keep the
ventilation slots clean and dust-free.
Cleaning the Grass Catcher
For thorough cleaning, the grass catcher can be cleaned with a hose.
To ensure that the level indicator functions correctly, regularly clean
the area under the level indicator on the inside of the grass catcher
with a hand brush.
Replacing/Sharpening the Cutting Blade
To protect against injury from the cutting blade, have a lawn mower
repair service replace or sharpen the cutting blade.
Repairs
Check the unit for damage. Repairs should be carried out by an
authorized customer service center only.
!
CAUTION
The cutting blade has extremely sharp edges!
Wear protective gloves when cleaning debris from underneath the
mower or when handling the blade.

Storage
Storage

before storing. Store the lawn mower in a dry, dust-free and frostfree place ideally in a temperature range of 50° - 77°F (10-25 °C).
Store the battery and the unit separately.
Folding the Lawn Mower
!
CAUTION
When collapsing or unfolding the handlebar,
the cable may be damaged. Ensure that the
cable is not kinked.
The handle bar can be folded down to facilitate storage and
transport.
1. Loosen the quick-clamping levers on the upper handle 1 and
move the handle backwards 2 (see Figure 16).
2. Loosen the quick-clamping levers on the housing 3 and move
the lower handle forwards and put on the housing 4 (see
Figure 17).
Battery Storage
Charge the battery before storing the unit in winter. Keep the unit,
in particular its plastic components, away from brake fluids, petrol,
petroleum products, penetrating oil, etc. They contain chemical
substances which may damage, attack or destroy the plastic
components of the unit.
