•
WARNING: Drain fuel into an approved
container outdoors, away from an open
flame. Allow engine to cool. Extinguish
cigarettes, cigars, pipes, and other
sources of ignition prior to draining fuel.
Fuel left in engine for extended periods
deteriorates and will cause starting
problems.
•
•
Wipe equipment with an oiled rag to prevent rust.
Remove spark plug and pour one ounce of engine
oil through spark plug hole into cylinder. Cover
spark plug hole with rag. Crank engine several
times to distribute oil. Replace spark plug.

MANUFACTURER’S LIMITED WARRANTY FOR:
The limited warranty set forth below is given by White Outdoor Products Co. with respect to new merchandise purchased and used in the United States, its possessions and
territories.
White Outdoor Products Co. warrants this product against
defects in material and workmanship for a period of two (2)
years commencing on the date of original purchase and will,
at its option, repair or replace, free of charge, any part found
to be defective in material or workmanship. This limited warranty shall only apply if this product has been operated and
maintained in accordance with the Operator’s Manual furnished with the product, and has not been subject to misuse,
abuse, commercial use, neglect, accident, improper maintenance, alteration, vandalism, theft, fire, water or damage
because of other peril or natural disaster. Damage resulting
from the installation or use of any accessory or attachment
not approved by White Outdoor Products Co. for use with the
product(s) covered by this manual will void your warranty as
to any resulting damages.
Normal wear parts or components thereof are subject to separate terms as follows: All normal wear part or component
failures will be covered on the product for a period of 90 days
regardless of cause. After 90 days, but within the two year
period, normal wear part failures will be covered ONLY IF
caused by defects in material or workmanship of OTHER
component parts. Normal wear parts and components
include, but are not limited to, belts, blades, blade adapters,
grass bags, rider deck wheels, seats, snow thrower skid
shoes, shave plates and tires. Batteries are covered by a 90day limited replacement warranty.
HOW TO OBTAIN SERVICE: Warranty service is available,
WITH PROOF OF PURCHASE THROUGH YOUR LOCAL
WHITE OUTDOOR DEALER. To locate the dealer in your
area, please check for a listing in the Yellow Pages or contact
the Customer Dealer Referral Line of White Outdoor Co. by
calling 1-330-225-8883 or writing to P.O. Box 361131, Cleveland, Ohio 44136-0019.
This limited warranty does not provide coverage in the
following cases:
a. The engine or component parts thereof. These items
carry a separate manufacturer’s warranty. Please refer to
the applicable manufacturer’s warranty on these items.
b. Routine maintenance items such as lubricants, filters,
blade sharpening and tune-ups, or adjustments such as
brake adjustments, clutch adjustments or deck adjustments; and normal deterioration of the exterior finish due
to use or exposure.
c. Log splitter pumps, valves and cylinders have a separate
one year warranty.
d. White Outdoor Co. does not extend any warranty for
products sold or exported outside of the United States of
America, its possessions and territories, except those
sold through White Outdoor Co. authorized channels of
export distribution.
No implied warranty, including any implied warranty of
merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose,
applies after the applicable period of express written
warranty above as to the parts as identified. No other
express warranty or guaranty, whether written or oral,
except as mentioned above, given by any person or
entity, including a dealer or retailer, with respect to any
product shall bind White Outdoor Co. During the period
of the Warranty, the exclusive remedy is repair or
replacement of the product as set forth above. (Some
states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.)
The provisions as set forth in this Warranty provide the
sole and exclusive remedy arising from the sales. White
Outdoor Co. shall not be liable for incidental or consequential loss or damages including, without limitation,
expenses incurred for substitute or replacement lawn
care services, for transportation or for related expenses,
or for rental expenses to temporarily replace a warranted
product. (Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation
of incidental or consequential damages, so the above exclusion or limitation may not apply to you.)
In no event shall recovery of any kind be greater than the
amount of the purchase price of the product sold. Alteration
of the safety features of the product shall void this Warranty.
You assume the risk and liability for loss, damage, or injury to
you and your property and/or to others and their property
arising out of the use or misuse or inability to use the product.
This limited warranty shall not extend to anyone other than
the original purchaser, original lessee or the person for whom
it was purchased as a gift.
How State Law Relates to this Warranty: This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have
other rights which vary from state to state.
