Safe Operation Practices
For Ride-On (Riding) Rotary Mower Machines
Training
Read the instructions carefully. Be familiar with the 1.
controls and the proper use of the equipment.
Never allow children or people unfamiliar with these 2.
instructions to use the mower. Local regulations may
restrict the age of the operator.
Never mow while people, especially children, or pets 3.
are nearby.
Keep in mind that the operator or user is responsible 4.
for accidents or hazards occurring to other people or
their property.
Do not carry passengers. 5.
All drivers should seek and obtain professional 6.
and practical instruction. Such instruction should
emphasize:
the need for care and concentration when working a.
with ride-on machines;
control of a ride-on machine sliding on a slope will b.
not be regained by the application of the brake. The
main reasons for loss of control are:
insufficient wheel grip; t
being driven too fast; t
inadequate braking;t
the type of machine is unsuitable for its task; t
lack of awareness of the effect of ground t
conditions, especially slopes;
incorrect hitching and load distribution. t
Preparation
While mowing, always wear substantial footwear and 1.
long trousers. Do not operate the equipment when
barefoot or wearing open sandals.
Thoroughly inspect the area where the equipment is to 2.
be used and remove all objects which may be thrown
by the machine.
WARNING – Petrol is highly flammable. 3.
Store fuel in containers specifically designed for a.
this purpose.
Refuel outdoors only and do not smoke while b.
refuelling.
Add fuel before starting the engine. Never remove c.
the cap of the fuel tank or add petrol while the
engine is running or when the engine is hot.
If petrol is spilled, do not attempt to start the d.
engine but move the machine away from the area
of spillage and avoid creating any source of ignition
until petrol vapours have dissipated.
Replace all fuel tanks and container caps securely. e.
Replace faulty silencers. 4.
Before using, always visually inspect to see that the 5.
blades, blade bolts and cutter assembly are not worn or
damaged. Replace worn or damaged blades and bolts
in sets to preserve balance.
On multi-blade machines, take care as rotating one 6.
blade can cause other blades to rotate.
Operation
Do not operate the engine in a confined space where 1.
dangerous carbon monoxide fumes can collect.
Mow only in daylight or in good artificial light. 2.
Before attempting to start the engine, disengage all 3.
blade attachment clutches and shift into neutral.
Do not use on slopes of more than 10 degrees. 4.
Remember there is no such thing as a “safe” slope. 5.
Travel on grass slopes requires particular care. To
guard against overturning:
do not stop or start suddenly when going up or a.
downhill;
engage clutch slowly, always keep machine in gear, b.
especially when travelling downhill;
machine speeds should be kept low on slopes and c.
during tight turns;
stay alert for humps and hollows and other hidden d.
hazards;
never mow across the face of the slope, unless the e.
mower is designed for this purpose.

for damage and make repairs before restarting and
operating the equipment;
if the machine starts to vibrate abnormally (check d.
immediately).
Disengage drive to attachments when transporting or 14.
not in use.
Stop the engine and disengage drive to attachment:15.
before refuelling; a.
before removing the grass catcher; b.
before making height adjustment unless adjustment c.
can be made from the operator’s position.
Reduce the throttle setting during engine run-out and, 16.
if the engine is provided with a shut-off valve, turn the
fuel off at the conclusion of mowing.
Before and when backing, look 17. behind and down for
small children.
Use extra care when approaching blind corners, shrubs, 18.
trees or other objects that may obscure vision.
Maintenance and Storage
On multi-blade machines, take care as rotating one 1.
blade can cause other blades to rotate.

Mowing and Bagging Tips
For a lawn to look better, check the cutting level of the 1.
mower housing. See authorized dealer.
For the mower housing to cut level, make sure the tires 2.
have the correct amount of air pressure.
Every time you use the unit, check the blade. If the 3.
blade is bent or damaged, immediately replace the
blade. Also, make sure the nut for the blade is tight.
Keep the blade(s) sharpened. Worn blades will cause 4.
the ends of the grass to turn brown.
Do not cut or bag grass that is wet. Wet grass will not 5.
discharge correctly. Let the grass dry before cutting.
Use the left side of the mower housing to trim near an 6.
object.
Discharge the cut grass onto the mowed area. The 7.
result is a more even discharge of cut grass.
When you mow large areas, start by turning to the right 8.
so that the cut grass will discharge away from shrubs,
fences, driveways, etc. After one or two rounds, mow in
the opposite direction making left turns until finished.
If the grass is very high, cut two times to decrease the 9.
load on the engine. First cut with the mower housing in
the highest position and then lower the mower housing
for the second cut.
For better engine performance and an even discharge 10.
of the cut grass, always operate the engine with the
throttle in FAST position.
When you use a bagger, operate the engine with the 11.
throttle in FAST position and the shift lever in first or
second gear.
For better cutting performance and a quality cut, mow 12.
with the shift lever in one of the slower speeds.
After each use, clean the bottom and top of the mower 13.
housing for better performance. Also, a clean mower
housing will help prevent a fire.

NOTE: Illustrations and pictorials begin on page 1.
Check Tire Pressure
Check the air pressure in the tires. Tires with too much air
pressure will cause the unit to ride rough. Also, the wrong
air pressure will keep the mower housing from cutting level.
The correct air pressure is: Front Tires 0,97 BAR (14 PSI),
Rear Tires 0,69 BAR (10 PSI).
Maintenance Free Battery
Remove The Battery (Figure 7)
To charge or clean the battery (A), remove the battery (A)

Charge The Battery (Figure 7)
WARNING: When you charge the battery, do not
smoke. Keep the battery away from any sparks. The
fumes from the battery acid can cause an
explosion.
Before you charge the 1. battery (A), remove the
battery (A).
To charge the 2. battery (A), use a 12 volt battery charger.
Charge at a rate of 6 amperes for 1 hour.
Install the 3. battery (A).
WARNING: To prevent sparks, fasten the red cable
to the positive (+) terminal before you connect the
black cable.
Fasten the 4. red cable (E) to the positive (+) terminal
(D) with the fasteners as shown.
Fasten the 5. black cable (H) to the negative (-) terminal
with the fasteners as shown.
Storage
WARNING: Never store the unit (with fuel) in an
enclosed, ventilated structure. Fuel vapors can
travel to an ignition source (such as a furnace,
water heater, etc.) and cause an explosion. Fuel
vapor is also toxic to humans and animals.
When Storing Fuel Or Equipment With Fuel In Tank
t 4UPSFBXBZGSPNGVSOBDFTTUPWFTXBUFSIFBUFSTPS
appliances that have pilot lights or other ignition sources
because they can ignite fuel vapors.
Equipment
Battery life will be increased if it is removed. Put in a cool,
dry place and fully charged about once a month. If the
battery is left in the unit, disconnect the negative cable.
Fuel System
Fuel can become stale when stored over 30 days. Stale fuel
causes acid and gum deposits to form in the fuel system or
on essential carburetor parts. To keep fuel fresh, use Briggs
& Stratton FUEL FIT® fuel stabilizer, available as a liquid
additive or a drip concentrate cartridge.
There is no need to drain gasoline from the engine if a fuel
stabilizer is added according to instructions. Run the engine
for 2 minutes to circulate the stabilizer throughout the fuel
system. The engine and fuel can then be stored up to 24
months.
If gasoline in the engine has not been treated with a fuel
stabilizer, it must be drained into an approved container.
Run the engine until it stops from lack of fuel. The use of a
fuel stabilizer in the storage container is recommended to
maintain freshness.
Engine Oil
While the engine is still warm, change the engine oil. See the
Engine Manual.
