Safe Operation Practices for Walk-Behind Mowers
IMPORTANT: THIS CUTTING MACHINE IS CAPABLE OF AMPUTATING HANDS AND FEET AND THROWING OBJECTS. FAILURE
TO OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH.
•
Look for this symbol to point out impor tant safety precautions. It means
CAUTION!!! BECOME ALERT!!! YOUR
SAFETY IS INVOLVED.
•
•
CAUTION: Always disconnect spark plug
wire and place wire where it cannot contact
spark plug in order to prevent accidental
starting when setting up, transporting,
adjusting or making repairs.
•
•
•
WARNING: Engine exhaust, some of its
constituents, and certain vehicle components contain or emit chemicals known to
the State of California to cause cancer and
birth defects or other reproductive harm.
•
•
•
WARNING: Battery posts, terminals and
related accessories contain lead and lead
compounds, chemicals known to the State
of California to cause cancer and birth
defects or other reproductive harm. Wash
hands after handling.
II. SLOPE OPERATION
Slopes are a major factor related to slip and fall accidents
which can result in severe injury. All slopes require extra
caution. If you feel uneasy on a slope, do not mow it.
DO:
• Mow across the face of slopes: never up and down. Exercise extreme caution when changing direction on slopes.
• Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree limbs, etc.
• Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps. Tall grass can hide
obstacles.
DO NOT:
• Do not trim near drop-offs, ditches or embankments.
The operator could lose footing or balance.
• Do not trim excessively steep slopes.
• Do not mow on wet grass. Reduced footing could cause
slipping.
CAUTION: Muffler and other engine parts
become extremely hot during operation
and remain hot after engine has stopped.
To avoid severe burns on contact, stay away
from these areas.
I. GENERAL OPERATION
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Read, understand, and follow all instructions on the
machine and in the manual(s) before starting. Be thoroughly familiar with the controls and the proper use of
the machine before starting.
Do not put hands or feet near or under rotating parts.
Keep clear of the discharge opening at all times.
Only allow responsible individuals, who are familiar
with the instructions, to operate the machine.
Clear the area of objects such as rocks, toys, wire,
bones, sticks, etc., which could be picked up and thrown
by the blade.
Be sure the area is clear of other people before mowing. Stop machine if anyone enters the area.
Do not operate the mower when barefoot or wearing
open sandals. Always wear substantial foot wear.
Do not pull mower backwards unless absolutely necessary. Always look down and behind before and while
moving backwards.
Never direct discharged material toward anyone.
Avoid discharging material against a wall or obstruction. Material may richochet back toward the operator.
Stop the blade when crossing gravel surfaces.
Do not operate the mower without proper guards,
plates, grass catcher or other safety protective devices
in place.
See manufacturer’s instructions for proper operation
and installation of accessories. Only use accessories
approved by the manufacturer.
Stop the blade(s) when crossing gravel drives, walks,
or roads.
Stop the engine (motor) whenever you leave the equipment, before cleaning the mower or unclogging the
chute.
Shut the engine (motor) off and wait until the blade comes
to complete stop before removing grass catcher.
Mow only in daylight or good artificial light.
Do not operate the machine while under the influence
of alcohol or drugs.
Never operate machine in wet grass. Always be sure of
your footing: keep a firm hold on the handle and walk;
never run.
Disengage the self-propelled mechanism or drive clutch
on mowers so equipped before starting the engine (motor).
If the equipment should start to vibrate abnormally,
stop the engine (motor) and check immediately for the
cause. Vibration is generally a warning of trouble.
Always wear safety goggles or safety glasses with side
shields when operating mower.
III. CHILDREN
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.
• Keep children out of the trimming area and under the
watchful care of another responsible adult.
• Be alert and turn machine off if children enter the
area.
• Before and while walking backwards, look behind and
down for small children.
• Never allow children to operate the machine.
• Use extra care when approaching blind corners, shrubs,
trees, or other objects that may obscure vision.
IV. SAFE HANDLING OF GASOLINE
2
Use extreme care in handling gasoline. Gasoline is extremely flammable and the vapors are explosive.
• Extinguish all cigarettes, cigars, pipes and other sources
of ignition.
• Use only an approved container.
• Never remove gas cap or add fuel with the engine running. Allow engine to cool before refueling.
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Never refuel the machine indoors.
Never store the machine or fuel container where there
is an open flame, spark or pilot light such as a water
heater or on other appliances.
Never fill containers inside a vehicle, on a truck or trailer
bed with a plastic liner. Always place containers on
the ground away from your vehicle before filling.
Remove gas-powered equipment from the truck or trailer
and refuel it on the ground. If this is not possible, then
refuel such equipment with a portable container, rather
than from a gasoline dispenser nozzle.
Keep the nozzle in contact with the rim of the fuel tank
or container opening at all times until fueling is complete.
Do not use a nozzle lock-open device.
If fuel is spilled on clothing, change clothing immediately.
Never overfill fuel tank. Replace gas cap and tighten
securely.
•

V. GENERAL SERVICE
•
•
•
Never run a machine inside a closed area.
Never make adjustments or repairs with the engine
(motor) running. Disconnect spark plug wire, and keep
•
wire away from plug to prevent accidental starting.
Keep nuts and bolts, especially blade attachement
bolts, tight and keep equipment in good condition.
Never tamper with safety devices. Check their proper
operation regularly.
Keep machine free of grass, leaves, or other debris
build-up. Clean oil or fuel spillage. Allow machine to
cool before storing.
Stop and inspect the equipment if you strike an object.
Repair, if necessary, before restarting.
Never attempt to make wheel height adjustments while
the engine (motor) is running.
Grass catcher components are subject to wear, damage, and deterioration, which could expose moving
parts or allow objects to be thrown. Frequently check
components and replace with manufacturer’s recommended parts, when necessary.
Mower blade is sharp and can cut. Wrap the blade or
wear gloves, and use extra caution when servicing it.
Do not change the engine governor setting or overspeed
the engine.
Maintain or replace safety and instruction labels, as
necessary.

speed.
3. Operate mower to test drive speed. Readjust as required.
4. If condition fails to improve after the above steps (forward speed remains the same), your drive belt is worn
and should be replaced.
HOW TO USE YOUR LAWN MOWER
ENGINE SPEED
The engine speed was set at the factory for optimum performance. Speed is not adjustable.
ENGINE ZONE CONTROL
CAUTION: Federal regulations require
an engine control to be installed on this
lawn mower in order to minimize the risk
of blade contact injury. Do not under
any circumstances attempt to defeat
the function of the operator control.The
blade turns when the engine is running.

presence control bar down to the handle and pulling
the drive control lever rearward to the handle. The
farther toward the handle the lever is pulled, the faster
the unit will travel.
• Forward motion will stop when either the operator presence control bar or drive control lever are released. To
stop forward motion without stopping engine, release
the drive control lever only. Hold operator presence
control bar down against handle to continue mowing
without self-propelling.
NOTE: If after releasing the drive control the mower will
not roll backwards, push the mower forward slightly to
disengage drive wheels.
• To keep drive control engaged when turning corners,
push down on the handle to lift the front wheels off the

FIG. 8
ADD GASOLINE (See Fig. 8)
•
•
Fill fuel tank to bottom of tank filler neck. Do not overfill. Use fresh, clean, regular unleaded gasoline with
a minimum of 87 octane. Do not mix oil with gasoline.
Purchase fuel in quantities that can be used within 30
days to assure fuel freshness.
•
CAUTION: Wipe off any spilled oil or
fuel. Do not store, spill or use gasoline
near an open flame.
Under certain conditions, such as very tall grass, it
may be necessary to raise the height of cut to reduce
pushing effort and to keep from overloading the engine
and leaving clumps of grass clippings. It may also be
necessary to reduce ground speed and/or run the lawn
mower over the area a second time.
For extremely heavy cutting, reduce the width of cut
by overlapping previously cut path and mow slowly.
For better grass bagging and most cutting conditions,
the engine speed should be set in the fast position.
Pores in cloth grass catchers can become filled with
dirt and dust with use and catchers will collect less
grass. To prevent this, regularly hose catcher off with
water and let dry before using.
Keep top of engine around starter clear and clean of
grass clippings and chaff. This will help engine air flow
and extend engine life.
MULCHING MOWING TIPS
IMPORTANT: FOR BEST PERFORMANCE, KEEP MOWER
HOUSING FREE OF BUILT-UP GRASS AND TRASH. SEE
“CLEANING” IN MAINTENANCE SECTION OF THIS MANUAL.
Alcohol blended fuels (called gasohol
or using ethanol or methanol) can attract moisture which leads to separation
and formation of acids during storage.
Acidic gas can damage the fuel system of an engine while in storage. To
avoid engine problems, the fuel system
should be emptied before storage of
30 days or longer. Empty the gas tank,
start the engine and let it run until the
fuel lines and carburetor are empty. Use
fresh fuel next season. See Storage
Instructions for additional information.
Never use engine or carburetor cleaner
products in the fuel tank or permanent
damage may occur.
•
•
•
TO STOP ENGINE
• To stop engine, release operator presence control bar.
NOTE: In cooler weather it may be necessary to repeat
priming steps. In warmer weather over priming may cause
flooding and engine will not start. If you do flood engine,
wait a few minutes before attempting to start and do not
repeat priming steps.
The special mulching blade will recut the grass clippings many times and reduce them in size so that as
they fall onto the lawn they will disperse into the grass
and not be noticed. Also, the mulched grass will biodegrade quickly to provide nutrients for the lawn. Always
mulch with your highest engine (blade) speed as this
will provide the best recutting action of the blades.
Avoid cutting your lawn when it is wet. Wet grass tends
to form clumps and interferes with the mulching action.
The best time to mow your lawn is the early afternoon.
At this time the grass has dried, yet the newly cut area
will not be exposed to direct sunlight.
For best results, adjust the lawn mower cutting height
so that the lawn mower cuts off only the top one-third of
the grass blades (See Fig. 9). If the lawn is overgrown
it will be necessary to raise the height of cut to reduce
pushing effort and to keep from overloading the engine
and leaving clumps of mulched grass. For extremely
heavy mulching, reduce your width of cut by overlapping previously cut path and mow slowly.
MAX 1/3
TO START ENGINE
NOTE: Due to protective coatings on the engine, a small
amount of smoke may be present during the initial use of
the product and should be considered normal.
1. To start a cold engine, push primer three (3) times
before trying to start. Use a firm push. This step is not
usually necessary when starting an engine which has
already run for a few minutes.
2. Hold operator presence control bar down to the handle
and pull starter handle quickly. Do not allow starter rope
to snap back.
•
•
8
FIG. 9
Certain types of grass and grass conditions may require
that an area be mulched a second time to completely
hide the clippings. When doing a second cut, mow
across (perpendicular) to the first cut path.
Change your cutting pattern from week to week. Mow
north–south one week, then change to east–west the
next week. This helps prevent matting/graining of lawn.

4. Install cartridge, then replace cover making sure the
tabs are aligned with the slots in the back plate. Fasten
screw securely.
NOTE: Multi-viscosity oils (5W30, 10W30 etc.) improve
starting in cold weather, and you should check your engine
oil level frequently to avoid possible engine damage from
running low on oil.
Change the oil after every 25 hours of operation or at least
once a year if the lawn mower is not used for 25 hours in one
year. Check the crankcase oil level before starting the engine
and after each five (5) hours of continuous use. Tighten oil
plug securely each time you check the oil level.

AIR FILTER (See Fig. 12)
Your engine will not run properly and may be damaged by
using a dirty air filter. Replace the air filter cartridge every
100 hours of operation or every season, whichever occurs
first. Service air cleaner more often under dusty conditions.
Clean the underside of your lawn mower by scraping
to remove build-up of grass and trash.
Clean engine often to keep trash from accumulating. A
clogged engine runs hotter and shortens engine life.
Keep finished surfaces/wheels free of gasoline, oil, etc.
We do not recommend using a garden hose to clean
lawn mower unless the electrical system, muffler, air
filter and carburetor are covered to keep water out.
Water in engine can result in shortened engine life.
CLEAN UNDER DRIVE COVER
11
Clean under drive cover at least twice a season. Scrape underside of cover with putty knife or similar tool to remove any
build-up of trash or grass on underside of drive cover.
SERVICE AND ADJUSTMENTS
CAUTION: TO AVOID SERIOUS INJURY, BEFORE PERFORMING ANY SERVICE OR ADJUSTMENTS:
1. Release control bar and stop engine.
2. Make sure the blade and all moving parts have completely stopped.
3. Disconnect spark plug wire from spark plug and place where it cannot come in contact with plug.

OTHER
•
•
•
Empty the fuel tank by starting the engine and letting
it run until the fuel lines and carburetor are empty.
• Never use engine or carburetor cleaner products in the
fuel tank or permanent damage may occur.
• Use fresh fuel next season.
NOTE: Fuel stabilizer 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 the mix ratio found on stabilizer container.
Run engine at least 10 minutes after adding stabilizer to
allow the stabilizer to reach the carburetor. Do not empty
the gas tank and carburetor if using fuel stabilizer.
•
•
Do not store gasoline from one season to another.
Replace your gasoline can if your can starts to rust.
Rust and/or dirt in your gasoline will cause problems.
If possible, store your unit indoors and cover it to give
protection from dust and dirt.
Cover your unit with a suitable protective cover that
does not retain moisture. Do not use plastic. Plastic
cannot breathe, which allows condensation to form and
will cause your unit to rust.
IMPORTANT: NEVER COVER MOWER WHILE ENGINE AND
EXHAUST AREAS ARE STILL WARM.
CAUTION: Never store the lawn mower
with gasoline in the tank inside a building where fumes may reach an open
flame or spark. Allow the engine to cool
before storing in any enclosure.
