Part No. 350245
Page 6 of 12
RAKING/SLICING TIPS
THATCH: Thatch is a dense layer of dead grass, clippings,
and roots that builds up over time at the base of of the lawn
preventing air, water, and fertilizer from reaching the soil.
This can cause shallow root development and make a lawn
more susceptible to drought and disease. Thatch also
provides an ideal environment for insects to hide and
multiply. Periodic removal of thatch will keep your lawn in
good health.
HEAVY THATCH: Lawns with an excessive amount of thatch
will require multiple treatments for effective removal. Trying
to remove excessive thatch (greater than 3/4"[19 mm] deep)
in one treatment will damage or destroy the living part of the
lawn. It is best to remove heavy thatch in seasonal treatments (i.e. spring, and fall).
CHECK: Before begining, it is best to evaluate the condition of the lawn by cutting one or more core samples from
area to be treated. A core can be cut using a piece of pvc,
or metal pipe. Hammer the pipe into the ground, remove it,
push the core out of the pipe and inspect it to determine the
depth of thatch in your yard.
SLOPES: Rake slopes across not up and down. This is
much easier and safer for the operator and is better for the
lawn. Raking across will help to reduce runoff during
watering and allow the sloped ground to hold more seed,
fertilizer, and water. The units maximum operating slope is
35% or 19°.
DEPTH: The wide range of depth adjusment on your unit is
provided to allow for blade wear. Setting the reel deeper will
not produce better, or quicker results. The flail reel is
intended to be set so it just touches the surface on flat
ground. The slicing reel should be set even with the ground
for verti-slicing work, and set to a maximum 1/2" depth for
overseeding jobs. Setting the reel deeper than this will only
result in premature wear on the unit (i.e. failed belt). If you
desire to work the ground deeper than the above guidlines
allow, it should be done gradually in multiple passes.
FOLDING HANDLE
This unit is equipped with a folding upper handle for easier storage
and transportation. The handle can be folded by sliding the handle
lock loops(item 28) up. This releases the upper handle, allowing it to
be folded over the unit.
HANDLING & TRANSPORTING
This unit requires two people to lift it. With the handle in the folded
position, lift holding the lower handle and belt/shaft guard one on
each side of the machine. Secure the machine in place during
transport.

If engine is to be unused for 30 days or more, prepare as follows:
Remove all gasoline from carburetor and fuel tank to prevent
gum deposits from forming on these parts and causing possible
malfunction of engine. Drain fuel outdoors, into an approved
container, away from open flame. Be sure engine is cool. Do not
smoke. Run engine until fuel tank is empty and engine runs out of
gasoline.
When servicing engine refer to specific manufacturers engine
owner's manual. All engine warranty is covered by the specific
engine manufacturer. If your engine requires warranty or other
repair work contact your local servicing engine dealer. When
contacting a dealer for service it is a good idea to have your engine
model number available for reference(See table page above). If
you can not locate a servicing dealer in your area you can contact
the manufacturers national service organization.
NOTE: Fuel stabilizer (such as Sta-Bil) is an acceptable alternative in minimizing
the formation of fuel gum deposits during storage. Add stabilizer to gasoline in
fuel tank or storage container. Always follow mix ratio found on stabilizer
container. Run engine at least 10 min. after adding stabilizer to allow it to reach
the carburetor.
