wristwatches) to catch in moving parts. NONSLIP footwear
is recommended.Wear protective hair covering to contain
long hair. Roll long sleeves above the elbow.
7. USE SAFETY GOGGLES (Head Protection)
Wear CE approved safety goggles at all times. Normal
spectacles only have impact resistant lenses, they are NOT
safety glasses. Also, use face or dust mask if application is
dusty and ear protectors (plugs or muffs) during extended
periods of operation.
8. NOISE LEVELS
Some types of machines may have high noise levels when
working. In such cases ear protection must be worn.
9. VIBRATION LEVELS
Hand held power tools produce different vibration levels.
You should always refer to the specifications and relevant

10. DUST EXTRACTION
If your tool is fitted with a dust extraction fitting, always
ensure that it is connected and being used with a dust
extractor.Vacuum cleaners can be used if suitable for the
material being extracted.
11. PROTECT YOURSELF FROM ELECTRIC SHOCK
When working with power tools, avoid contact with any
earthed items (e.g. pipes, radiators, hobs and refrigerators,
etc.). If you are using a power tool in extreme conditions
(e.g. high humidity or generating metal dust), always use an
RCD (residual current device) at the power socket.
12. STAY ALERT
Always watch what you are doing and use common sense.
Do not operate a power tool when you are tired or under
the influence of alcohol or drugs.
13. WHEN WORKING OUT OF DOORS
Only use extension leads designed for that purpose.
14. ACCESS TO MAINS SOCKET
If a stationary machine is fitted with a moulded plug and
cable, the machine should not be positioned so that access
to the mains socket is restricted.
15. DISCONNECT POWER TO THE TOOL
When not in use, before servicing and when changing
accessories such as cutters, etc.
16. AVOID ACCIDENTAL STARTING

ADDITIONAL SAFETY RULES FOR
ROTARY MOWERS
1. Always disconnect your mower from the electrical supply
before cleaning, inspecting or adjusting any part of it, or
if the supply cable has become damaged or entangled.
16. Stop the blade if the mower has to be tilted up for
transportation when crossing surfaces other than grass.
2. To protect your feet, always wear stout shoes or boots.
Freshly cut grass is damp and slippery. Do not mow
barefoot or in open sandals.
17. Do not tilt the mower when starting the motor. (The only
exception is when the mower will not start due to long
grass, in which case do not tilt it more than absolutely
necessary and lift only the part which is away from the
operator).
3. Always check that your lawn or cutting path is clear of all
sticks, stones, wire or other debris. Contact with such
debris may damage your mower and could be thrown by
the blade.
18. Do not pull your mower towards you or walk backwards
when mowing.
19. Walk, never run.
4. Wear long trousers to protect your legs from any debris
left on the lawn or cutting path that may be thrown by the
blade.
20. Always mow across the face of slopes, never up and
down. Exercise extreme caution when changing direction
on slopes. Do not mow excessively steep slopes and
always wear non-slip footwear.
5. Do not use your mower in the rain and do not allow it to
get wet. Avoid using the mower in wet grass if possible.
21. Mow only in daylight.
6. Before using your mower visually inspect the blade and
rotating parts for damage.
22. Never use the mower without the grass box in place.
7. Keep children, animals and other adults at least 6 m (20 ft)
away from the cutting area.

POWER SUPPLY
CONNECTING YOUR MACHINE TO THE POWER SUPPLY:
To eliminate the possibility of an electric shock your machine has been fitted with a BS approved, non
rewireable moulded plug and cable which incorporates a fuse, the value of which is indicated on the pin
face of the plug. Should the fuse need to be replaced an
approved BS1362 fuse must be used of the
same rating, marked thus
.
The fuse cover is detachable, never use the plug with the cover omitted. If a replacement fuse cover is
required, ensure it is of the same colour as that visible on the pin face of the plug (i.e. red).
If the fitted plug is not suitable, it should be cut off and destroyed. *The end of the cable should now be
suitably prepared and the correct type of plug fitted. See below.
*WARNING:
A plug with bare flexible wires exposed is hazardous if engaged in a live power socket outlet.
WARNING: THIS APPLIANCE IS DOUBLE INSULATED.
Blue - Neutral, Brown - Live.
As these colours may not correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your plug,
proceed as follows.:
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter 'N' or
coloured black or blue.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal which is marked with the letter 'L' or
coloured red or brown.
EXTENSION LEAD CHART:
Extension lead sizes shown assure a voltage drop of not more than 5% at rated load of tool.

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
Assembly of the mower
Fig.1.
1. Locate from the loose parts the two lower
handle parts and the two handle screws.
Insert the short end of each handle into the
sockets at the rear of the mower deck so the
concave side of the handle is innermost.
Once the handles are positioned locate the
holes in the side of the deck that are in line
with the socket and make sure the
corresponding hole in the handle lines up.
Screw in the self tapping handle screws but do
not over tighten as this will damage the
plastic.(Fig.1).
2. Locate from the loose parts the two bolts, caps,
knobs and top handle. Make sure the cable
restraint is positioned over the handle below
the switch before the handles are assembled.
Push one of the bolts through the top handle
on the right hand side (same side as the
switch) from the inside so the square under the
bolt head engages with the square in the
handle. Put the second bolt into the left hand
side of the handle from the inside so the bolt
only just protrudes through the handle (Fig.2).
Make sure the motor lead is inside the handles
and feed the first bolt through the right lower
handle and then push the other bolt through
the other lower left handle. Fit both caps onto
the bolts so the hollow side faces outwards
and then secure with the two knobs.
Fig.2.
3. Use the cable clips supplied to clip the motor
lead to the handles with the cable restraint
above the uppermost clip (Fig3).
Fig.3.
Assembly of the grass box
1. Offer the two halves of the grass box together.
Clip the two halves together ensuring that all
the tongues locate into their corresponding
grooves and all the clips are secure (Fig.4).
2. Carefully fold the two flaps under the top
handle together making sure the fingers knit
together. Do the same for the flaps under the
lower handle.
Fig.4.

ADJUSTMENTS & OPERATION
Wheel height adjustment
Fig.5.
Warning
Before adjusting wheel assembly, ensure that your
mower is disconnected from the mains.
✕✌
Each of the two axle wheels has its own means of
height adjustment, which gives three cutting height
positions.
To select a cutting height, move the wheel ✕✌ into
the slot required using the spring system ✖✌.(Fig.5)
Adjust the other three wheels in the same way.
To ensure an even cut, please make sure that all four
wheels are set to the same position, however in some
situations having the front wheels one notch lower
than the rear wheels may produce a better result.
✖✌
Operation
Note:- Draper Tools recommends that the mower is
used with a Residual Current Device (RCD).
Fig.6.
1. The top handle is equipped with a hooked cable
restraint which holds the cable to prevent it being
pulled out of the switch. Hook the cable into the
restraint to protect the lead from accidental tears
(Fig.6).
2. Adjust the wheel height if required.
3. Fit the grass box.
4. Connect the mower to a suitable power supply.
5. The mower is equipped with an electrical safety
switch to protect against accidental starting and a
motor brake to stop the motor in less than three
seconds once the switch is off.
6. To start the mower depress the safety lock-off
button on the switch box, and whilst still
depressed pull the switch lever (Fig.7). The
mower will start.
To stop the mower release the lever. The brake
will operate and the mower will stop in less than
three seconds.

the winter.
Fault
Remedy
Mower will not start
1. Check power supply.
2. Check the plug fuse and replace if necessary.
3. With the mower disconnected from the power
supply check the blade rotates (there is some
friction due to the brake). If the blade does not move
contact a service repair agent.
Mower vibrates in use
Stop using immediately.
Disconnect the mower from the power supply, wait until
the blade has stopped and then check to see if the
blade bolt is loose, tighten if necessary. If the blade
bolt is already tight contact a service repair agent.
Mower does not pick up the grass cuttings
1. Grass box is full. Empty grass box.
2. Grass is wet. Wait until the grass has dried.
3. The under side of the deck is clogged with grass
cuttings. Disconnect the mower from the power
supply and clean the under side of the deck.
4. Blade is blunt or damaged. Sharpen or replace as
required.
