Never direct discharged material toward anyone.

Avoid discharging material against a wall or obstruction. Material may richochet back toward the operator.

Basic working techniques Always cut with a sharp blade for optimal results. A dull blade gives an uneven cut and the grass becomes yellow on the surface of the cut.

Never mow more than 1/3 of the length of the grass.

This especially applies during dry periods. Mow first with the cutting height set high. Then check the result and lower to an appropriate height. If the grass is really long. drive slowly and mow twice if necessary.

For extremely heavy cutting. reduce the width of cut by overlapping previously cut path and mow slowly.

Cut in different directions each time in order to avoid stripes in the lawn.

Before pulling the machine towards you. disengage the drive and push the machine forward approx. 3’’ (10 cm).

Make sure to disengage the drive when approaching an obstacle.

Pores in cloth grass catchers can become filled with dirt and dust with use and the catcher will collect less grass.

To prevent this. regularly hose the grass catcher off with water and let dry before using.

Slope operation

Mowing slopes can be dangerous. Do not use the lawn mower on slopes steeper than 15°. All slopes demand extra care. If you feel unsure. do not mow it.

Mow across the face of slopes. never up and down.

Exercise extreme caution when changing direction on slopes.

Remove obstacles such as stones. branches. etc.

Watch for holes. ruts. bumps or hidden objects.

Uneven terrain could cause a slip and fall accident.

Tall grass can hide obstacles.

Do not:

Do not mow too close to edges. ditches or banks.

Avoid sudden changes in direction.

Do not mow wet grass. It is slippery. and tires can lose their grip so that the machine skids.

General recommendations The warranty on this lawn mower does not cover items that have been subjected to operator abuse or negligence. To receive full value from the warranty. operator must maintain mower as instructed in this manual. Some adjustments will need to be made periodically to properly maintain your unit. At least once a season. check to see if you should make any of the adjustments described in the Maintenance section of this manual.

At least once a year. replace the spark plug. clean or replace air filter element and check blade for wear. A new spark plug and clean/new air filter element assure proper air-fuel mixture and help your engine run better and last longer.

Follow the maintenance schedule in this manual.

General inspection Check that nuts and screws are tight.

General lubrication

CAUTION! Do not oil or grease plastic wheel bearings. Viscous lubricants will attract dust and dirt that will shorten the life of the self lubricating bearings.

If you feel they must be lubricated. use only a dry powdered graphite type lubricant sparingly.

Keep unit well lubricated.

Engine oil See ”Engine” in section Maintenance

Rear door hinge Spray lubricant Handle bar mounting bolts

Cleaning

WARNING! Always disconnect the spark plug before performing maintenance or service.

Brush leaves. grass and the like off of the lawn mower.

Keep finished surfaces / wheels free of gasoline. oil. etc.

Clean the underside of your lawn mower by scraping to remove build-up of grass and trash.

Do not use a high pressure washer to clean the machine.

Never flush water directly on the engine.

Clean the air intake on the starter. Check the starter and starter cord.

When cleaning under the cutting cover. empty the fuel tank and put the machine on its side with the muffler down.

CAUTION! With the exception of the water washout port (if equipped). we do not recommend using a garden hose to clean the outside of your 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.

Drive wheels

Check wheels each time before you mow to be sure they move freely. Clean the wheels if not rotating freely.

1 Remove the bolt.

2 Remove wheels from wheel adjusters.

3 Remove any trash or grass cuttings from inside the dust cover. pinion and/or drive wheel gear teeth.

4 Replace the wheels.

If after cleaning. the drive wheels do not turn freely. contact a authorized service workshop.

Grass catcher

Pores in cloth grass catchers can become filled with dirt and dust with use and the catcher will collect less grass. To prevent this. regularly hose the grass catcher off with water and let dry before using.

Check the grass catcher frequently for wear or deterioration. Replace if necessary.

MAINTENANCE

20 – English

Gear cases

To keep your drive system working properly. the gear cases and area around the drive should be kept clean and free of trash build-up. Clean under the drive cover twice a season.

The gear cases are filled with lubricant to the proper level at the factory. The only time the lubricant needs attention is if service has been performed on the gear case.

Under normal usage the grass catcher is subject to deterioration and wear. Check the grass catcher frequently for wear or deterioration. Replace the bag only with grass bags that meet the manufacturer’s recommendations and specifications.

Water washout feature

Your lawn mower is equipped with a fitting that allows quick and easy cleaning of the underside of the housing.

Note that water. grass and other debris will drain from beneath the mower housing during the washout process.

1 Move the machine to an area of cut grass or another hard surface.

2 Remove grass catcher or mulch plug from the lawn mower.

3 Close the back shield.

4 Connect a garden hose to the washout port fitting.

5 Turn on water supply and check for leaks at the fitting.

6 If no leaks are present. start engine and let engine run until the underside of the lawn mower is clean.

CAUTION! Do not engage the drive system during the washout process.

7 Turn off the engine.

8 Shut off water supply and remove hose from fitting.

IMPORTANT! Do not remove hose from fitting while engine is running. Water in engine can result in shortened engine life.

9 Start engine and let engine run for a full minute to remove excess water from mower.

Engine Lubrication Use only high quality detergent oil rated with API service classification SG-SL. Select the oil’s SAE viscosity grade according to your expected operating temperature.

CAUTION! Although multi-viscosity oils (5W30. 10W30 etc.) improve starting in cold weather. these multi-viscosity oils will result in increased oil consumption when used above 32°F. Check your engine oil level more frequently to avoid possible engine damage from running low on oil.

Check the engine oil level before starting the engine and after each 5 hours of continuous use. Tighten oil plug securely each time you check the oil level.

Oil level

Before starting for the first time

The oil tank is empty at delivery.

Fill oil to the FULL mark on the dipstick. Refer to the manual of the engine manufacturer for details.

IMPORTANT! Do not overfill!

Check the engine’s oil level

The lawn mower should stand on flat ground when you check the oil level. Ensure the ignition lead is disconnected from the spark plug before you open the oil filler cap.

1 Check the oil level with the dipstick on the oil filler cap.

2 Remove the oil cap and wipe the dipstick clean.

3 Put the dipstick back in. The oil filler cap must be completely screwed on to show the oil level correctly.

4 If the oil level is low. fill engine oil to the FULL mark on the dipstick.
