SETTING UP INSTRUCTIONS
Unpack your Flymo with care to avoid damaging the unit or
misplacing the loose items. Inspect the unpacked items
carefully to make sure no damage occurred during shipment.
Remove the mower and all loose items from the carton.
Attach the handle to the mower as follows:
1. Place the lower handle onto bracket pins “C’" of
the main frame and fasten with cotter pins ‘“D”
on each side. (See illustration)
2. Next, connect the upper and lower handle
halves together with attaching bolts and
nuts ( A” and “B”) contained in the
loose parts bag.
J. Place the handle splice “E”
over the two sections as
Illustrated and secure
with screws “F”',
FUEL
Your Flymo is equipped with a two-cycle gasoline engine.
Engines of this type are lubricated by mixing oil with the
gasoline before pouring the gasoline into the fuel tank.
NOTE: NEVER FILL THE FUEL TANK WITH PURE GAS-
OLINE. The proper mixture for use in your Flymo consists
of mixing 1/2 pint of lubricating oil (S.A.E. 30, outboard or
other two-cycle engine oil) with one gallon of regular grade
gasoline. Be sure to mix the oil and gasoline in a clean
container.
WARNING!
THE WARRANTY COVERING YOUR FLYMO
IS VOID IF MULTI-VISCOSITY OILS (e.g.,
10W-30) ARE USED.
Fill the fuel tank with the specified fuel-oil mixture before
starting the engine (see above).
1. Do not overfill. Immediately wipe up any spillage.
2. Be sure the tank cap is tight.
3. Be sure to open vent on top of gas cap.
4, Avoid filling the fuel tank when the engine is hot.
5 Your Flymo is sent directly from the factory, is adjusted
properly for normal mowing conditions, and needs no
alterations.
STARTING
. Fill fuel tank with specified fuel-oil mixture (refer to
FUEL). Replace tank cap.
. Make sure Flymo is on level surface. (If in grass, tip
unit up, as shown in illustration below.)
. Push choke lever to choke position.
. Pull starter rope with quick steady strokes to start engine.
. If engine fails to start after four or five pulls, open choke
part way to avoid flooding. Pull starter rope until engine
starts.
. When engine starts, immediately push choke lever to run
position,

J. Propel in counterclockwise, amply-overlapping swaths
To promote more even cut
1. Keep blade sharp
2, Reduce ground speed to maintain maximum engine
speed
3. Overlap swaths
4. Cut more frequently
STOPPING
To stop the engine, push the choke lever back to the stop
position, as indicated on the decal in photo below.
OPERATING TIPS AND
PRECAUTIONS
1. It is good practice to keep areas requiring mowing free
of stones, toys and other foreign objects.
2. Avoid spilling gasoline on the engine while it is hot.
Wipe up any spilled fuel immediately.
3. Never attempt to adjust the cutter blade while the engine
15 running.
4, Use only the fuel-oil mixture specified under “FUEL” in
this manual.
5. DISCONNECT SPARK PLUG WHEN WORKING ON CUT-
TER BAR.
MOWING PATTERN
Flymo has no wheels; therefore, it does an excellent job
under fences, around trees, under low hanging trees, shrubs
and bushes. Its ground hugging design prevents damage to
overhanging foliage.

LV)
As a mower for slopes and terraces, Flymo is an outstanding
performer. Its floatation and light weight make it easier to
handle than conventional mowers and prevents scalping the
lawn.
Flymo is a totally new concept in lawn maintenance. It
utilizes many of the good features of ordinary rotary mowers

and contributes a number of new ones. The unit can be
operated by pushing, pulling, side-angling up and down on
slopes. Flymo hovers 1/4 inch above the turf, nudging ob-
jects away from the housing unit rather than riding over
them. The housing is completely enclosed so that no
foreign objects can be picked up. It floats on air!
STORAGE
Flymo is lightweight and can be easily carried with one
hand. When transporting the machine, carry as shown in
the illustration on page 5. Its light weight also makes it
convenient and easy to store on a wall where it is out of
the way.
For storing, do the following:
1. Raise handle by pulling handle up when mower is on
flat surface,
2. Disconnect the spark plug wire.
3. Close vent on top of gas cap.

CUTTER BLADE
The cutter blade is 19” long, made of hardened and drawn
alloy steel. The cutter bar is fastened to the unit in the
following order: spacer, cutter bar, lockwasher and bolt
(see illustration on page 8). Follow the instructions below
for sharpening and balancing the cutter blade.
1. To remove cutter bar:
a. Disconnect spark plug end wire
b. Turn cutter bar screw sharply counter clockwise
C. Remove screw, lockwasher, cutter bar and spacer
2. Sharpen the cutting ends of the bar with a 10 inch file
to as close to the original bevel as possible. Keep blade
ends razor sharp.
3. Balance the blade on the Toro blade balancer. The same
amount should be taken off each end of bar.
CARBURETOR
FUEL MIXTURE
Mix in a clean container, 1/2 pint of Toro 2-cycle engine oil
per gallon of regular gasoline. This mixture assures posi-
tive lubrication. Warranty void if multi-viscosity (10W-30)
oils are used.
Your Flymo is designed to operate at a constant engine
speed and therefore is not provided with a throttle control.
ADJUSTMENT
The carburetor on your Tecumseh engine has been carefully
tested and adjusted at the factory. Occasionally, it may be
necessary to readjust the carburetor in order to obtain
maximum performance from this precision-built engine.
Your engine, when running under light loads, may appear to
miss. This in no way affects the operation of the engine.
Carburetor adjustments are as follows:
A. High Speed Adjustment Screw - (Full Load) - NORMAL
Setting is one turn open from closed position.
B. Low Speed Adjustment Screw - (No Load) - NORMAL
Setting is 1/2 to 5/8 turn open from closed position.
To decrease the fuel supply, turn the “High Speed Adjust- fuel supply, turn the “High Speed Adjustment Screw (A)
ment Screw’’ (A) in a clockwise direction. Close finger tight in a counterclockwise direction.

AIR FILTER SERVICE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Lift up on retaining clip and remove pre-cleaner. Re-
move any dirtaccumulation by either tapping pre-cleaner
to loosen dirt or washing out with garden hose.
2. Remove air filter element by turning in a counter clock-
wise direction.
3. It is recommended that the nylon mesh type filter (next
to carburetor) and the inner felt filter be cleaned with
the 2 cycle gas-oil mixture as used in the Flymo tank.
The 2 filters should be shaken vigorously, then allowed
to dry from 5 to 10 minutes. This is necessary to in-
sure proper engine speed.
4, Quter air cleaner (Biscuit-type) filter element should
also be cleaned as outlined in step 2.
5. Be sure to replace filters as they were removed from
the air cleaner. See photo at right for proper positioning.
6. After all items have been cleaned, re-assemble in
reverse order,
