PROTECTION FOR CHILDREN
PREPARATION
Tragic accidents can occur if the operator is not alert
to the presence of children. Children are often
attracted to the machine and the mowing activity.
Never assume that children will remain where you
last saw them.
1. KEEP children out of the mowing area and under
the watchful care of a responsible adult.
2. DO NOT allow children in yard when machine is
operated and turn machine OFF if anyone enters
the area.
3. DO NOT allow pre-teenage children to operate

while backing.
6. USE EXTRA CARE when approaching blind
corners, shrubs, trees, or other objects that may
obscure vision.
(Continued From Previous Column)
3. Data indicates that operators age 60 and above,
are involved in a large percentage of mowerrelated injuries. These operators should evaluate
their ability to operate the mower safely enough
to protect themselves and others from serious
injury.
4. Handle fuel with extra care. Fuels are flammable
and vapors are explosive. Use only an approved
fuel container. DO NOT remove fuel cap or add
fuel with engine running. Add fuel outdoors only
with engine stopped and cool. Clean spilled fuel
and oil from machine. DO NOT smoke.
5. Check the area to be mowed and remove all
objects such as toys, wire, rocks, limbs and
other objects that could cause injury if thrown by
blade or interfere with mowing. Also note the
location of holes, stumps, and other possible
hazards.
6. Keep people and pets out of the mowing area.
Immediately, STOP Blade, Stop engine and Stop
mower if anyone enters the area.
7. Check shields, deflectors, switches, blade
controls and other safety devices frequently for

position when using a grass bag. The baffle should
be secured in the highest position when mulching
grass.
NOTE: Under certain conditions, when mulching, some
grass may blow out from under front of baffle. This is
normal but, the amount of grass blowing out can be
reduced. Lower baffle slightly to reduce the amount of
grass blow out.
1. Stop engine. See WARNING above.
2. Loosen wing nuts that secure front deck baffle.
See Figure 2.9.
3. Lower the adjustable baffle to the lowest position
when using a grass bag. Raise the baffle to its
highest position when mulching grass. Take care to
keep the baffle’s lower edge parallel to the bottom of
the deck. See Figure 2.9.

4.4 BELT SERVICE
On self-propelled mowers, the engine belt transmits
power from engine to drive disc. The drive disc powers
the poly-v belt which engages the transmission that
powers the rear wheels. Should these belts become
worn, they could cause slippage which would impair
mower performance. The condition of the engine belt
and poly-v belt should be checked after every 25 hours
of mower operation.
