section of this manual.
ADD PETROL
 Fill fuel tank to bottom of tank filler neck Do not overfill. Use fresh, clean, regular unleaded petrol.

CAUTION: 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 petrol 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.
START ENGINE
To start the engine, first make sure that the spark plug cap is on and that the machine is filled with
sufficient oil and fuel.
Push Prime Button several times to prime.
NOTE: Due to protective coating on the engine, a small amount of smoke may be present during
the initial use of the product and should be considered normal.
Move throttle control to “Start” position and pull starter rope to start.
Do not allow starter rope to snap back.
NOTE: In cold conditions, it’s necessary to push the prime button on the air filter before pulling the
starter coil.
When you push the prime button, it will pump the fuel direct from carburetor to combustion chamber.

NOTE: In cold conditions it may be necessary to repeat priming steps.
STOP ENGINE
 To stop the engine, turn the throttle control to STOP position.
WARNING! The blade will continue to rotate for a few seconds after the engine has stopped.
Disconnect the spark plug cap if the lawnmower is to be left unattended.
MOWING TIPS
 Under certain conditions, such as very tall grass, it may be necessary to raise the height of
cutting 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 over lapping previously cut path
and mow slowly.
 Pores in the cloth grass catcher can become filled with dirt and dust with use and the catcher will
collect less grass. To prevent this, regularly hose catcher off with water and let dry before using.
8
 Keep top of engine around starter clear and clean of grass clippings and chaff.
This will help engine air flow and extend engine life.
MAINTENANCE
IMPORTANT-Regular, careful maintenance is essential for keeping the safety level and original
performance of the machine unchanged in time.
1)Keep all nuts, bolts and screws tight to be sure the equipment is in safe working condition.
Regular maintenance is essential for safety and performance.
2)Never store the equipment with fuel in the tank inside a building where vapour may reach
a flame or a spark or a source of extreme heat.
3)Allow the engine to cool before storing in an enclosed space.
4)To reduce the fire hazard, keep the engine, exhaust silencer, battery compartment and fuel
storage area free of grass, leaves, or excessive grease. Do not leave containers with grass cuttings
in rooms.
5)For reasons of safety, do not use equipment with worn or damaged parts. Parts are to be
replaced and not repaired. Use genuine spare parts (blades should always bear the symbol).
Parts that are not of the same quality can damage the equipment and be dangerous for your safety.
6)If the fuel tank has to be drained , this should be done outdoors and when the engine is cool.
7)Wear strong work gloves when removing and reassembling the blade.
8)Check the blade’s balance after sharpening.
9)Check the self-closing guard and grass-catcher frequently for wear and deterioration.
10)Whenever the machine is to be handled, transported or tilted you must:
-Wear strong working gloves;
-Grasp the machine at the points that offer a safe grip, taking account of the weight and its distribution.
CLEANING
Carefully clean the machine with water after each cut; remove the grass debris and mud accumulated
inside the chassis to avoid their drying and thus making the next start-up difficult.
The paintwork on the inside of the chassis may peel off in time due to the abrasive action of the cut
grass; in this case, intervene promptly by touching up the paintwork using a rustproof paint to prevent
the formation of rust that would lead to corrosion of the metal.

CHANGING BLADES
Tilt the mower backwards.
The blade is sharp therefore use cloth or thick gloves when handling the blade.
To replace the blade, undo the screw.
