surfaces other than grass.
GB-4
•
•
•
•
•
Remember that some people are deaf or
blind and that children and animals can
be unpredictable.
Keep travelling speeds low enough for an
emergency stop to be effective and safe
at all times, in any conditions.
Remove or avoid obstructions in the area
to be cut, thus reducing the possibility of
injury to yourself and/or bystanders.
When reversing, take special care to
ensure that the area behind is clear of
obstructions and/or bystanders. DO
NOT carry passengers.
Keep in mind that the operator or user is
responsible for accidents or hazards
occurring to other people or their
property.
When the machine is to be parked,
stored or left unattended, lower the
cutting means unless the transport locks
are being used.
While mowing, always wear substantial
footwear and long trousers. Do not
operate the equipment when barefoot or
wearing open sandals.
Check the grass catcher frequently for
wear or deterioration. After striking a
foreign object. Inspect. the lawnmower
for damage and make repairs before
restarting and operating the equipment.
If the machine starts to vibrate
abnormally, check immediately.
3.5 TRANSPORTING
•
Ensure that the cutting units are
securely fastened in the transport
position. Do not transport with cutting
mechanism rotating.
•
Drive the machine with due consideration
of road and surface conditions, inclines
and local undulations.
•
Sudden decelerating or braking can
cause the rear wheels to lift.
•
Remember that the stability of the rear of
the machine is reduced as the fuel is
used.
3.6 LEAVING THE DRIVING POSITION
•
Park the machine on level ground.
•
Before leaving the driving position, stop
the engine and make sure all moving
parts are stationary. Apply brakes and
disengage all drives. Remove the starter
key.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
3.7 SLOPES
TAKE EXTRA CARE WHEN WORKING ON
SLOPES
•
Local undulations and sinkage will change
the general slope. Avoid ground conditions
which can cause the machine to slide.
•
Keep machine speeds low on slopes and
during tight turns.
•
Sudden decelerating or braking can cause
the rear wheels to lift. Remember there is
no such thing as a “safe” slope.
•
Travel on grass slopes requires particular
care.
DO NOT USE ON SLOPES GREATER THAN 15°
IMPORTANT: When working on any slope set the
weight transfer, if fitted to its maximum (+) setting.
3.8 BLOCKED CUTTING CYLINDERS
•
Stop the engine and make sure all moving
parts are stationary.
•
Apply brakes and disengage all drives.
•
Release blockages with care. Keep all parts
of the body away from the cutting edge.
Beware of energy in the drive which can
cause rotation when the blockage is released.
•
Keep other people away from the cutting units
as rotation of one cylinder can cause the
others to rotate.
3.9 ADJUSTMENTS, LUBRICATION AND
MAINTENANCE
All vehicles
•
Stop the engine and make sure all moving
parts are stationary.
•
Apply brakes and disengage all drives.
•

•
Backlapping is a process which will lightly
grind the reel to the bedknife whilst
mounted on the mower.
120 grit grinding paste, 4.5kg tin,
Part number 5002489
•
If significant amounts of metal are to be
removed then the cutting unit should be
reground on a specialised grinding
machine.
•
Before any backlapping is carried out,
Ransomes Jacobsen recommends that
the backlapping process should be risk
assessed as a workshop process by the
manager of the machine.
•
Backlapping should only be carried out by
trained staff.
•
Ransomes Jacobsen recommend that
grinding paste is only applied to the reel
when it is stationery, the engine is off and
the parking brake applied.
•
When applying grinding paste the reel
should only be rotated by appropriately
sized piece of wood and not by hand.
•
Place reels in the most accessible
position for applying the paste.
•
Leave the grass boxes in position on the
cutting units as a safety barrier.
•
After applying the grinding paste the
person backlapping should return to the
seat, engage the relevant controls and run
the reels in reverse.
•
When the desired finish is achieved switch
off the mower, clean off any surplus paste,
reset the reel to bedknife and return the
controls to the normal mow positions.
