Keeping Engine Clean
Remove all grass and debris from the engine including the
exhaust/exhaust guard, the air ways in the top cowl and the surrounding deck areas on a daily basis after use. Never spray the engine with
water during cleaning. Water can contaminate the fuel. Always clean
with a brush or compressed air.
Grass and debris may clog the engine’s air cooling system especially
after prolonged operation while cutting tall, dry grass. The internal cooling fins and surfaces may require cleaning to prevent overheating and
engine damage. We recommend that this service be carried out by an
authorised dealer.

MAINTENANCE
Cutterbar Removal
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. Turn the mower on its left hand side and ensure that the carburettor is uppermost.
Firmly grip the end of the cutterbar with the gloved hand and remove
the bolt with the supplied spanner.
To prevent accidents never work on the cutterbar unless the spark
plug lead has been removed. The cutterbar has sharp edges.
ALWAYS wear strong gloves to protect your hands when working
on the cutterbar. DO NOT rotate tools towards the cutting edges to
avoid the risk of injury should the tool slip. ALWAYS use genuine
replacement parts.
The condition of the cutterbar and its mounting arrangement should be
checked regularly for signs of wear or damage. Ensure that the cutterbar is not bent or cracked.
A damaged cutterbar that is out of balance will vibrate excessively and
may break. DO NOT use an unbalanced cutterbar.
Regularly check that the bolt securing the cutterbar is tightened.
Replace the cutterbar every 2 years of sooner if excessively worn or
damaged.
Cutterbar 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.
30-45
C
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.

MAINTENANCE
Cutterbar Sharpening
If the cutterblade is not balanced the heavy end will rotate downwards.
Sharpen the heavy end until the cutterblade is correctly balanced.
1CG480V25B
Flexiblade Replacement
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. Turn the mower on its left hand side and ensure that the carburettor is uppermost. Wearing protective gloves remove flexiblade and
replace with new.
Storage
Engines stored in excess of 30 days need to be protected with a 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 engine handbook as necessary.
Drain fuel from the engine by operating the engine until it stops. See
Engine Manual.
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 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.
Clean grass and debris from the engine cylinder, cylinder head cooling
fins, under top cowl, and around and behind exhaust/exhaust guard.
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.
