Data indicates that operators, age 60 years and above, are involved in a large percentage of riding mower related injuries. These operators should evaluate their ability to operate a riding mower safely enough to protect themselves and others from serious injury.

II. Slope operation

Slopes and rough terrain are major factors related to loss–of–control and tip–over accidents, which can result in severe injury or death. ALL slopes require extra caution. If you cannot back up the slope or if you feel uneasy on the slope, do not mow it. See the “Slope Guide” in the back of this book to check for safe operation.

DO
1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

Mow up and down slopes, not across. Remove obstacles such as rocks, limbs, etc... Watch for holes, ruts or bumps. Uneven terrain could overturn the machine. Tall grass can hide obstacles. Use slow speed. Choose a low enough gear so that you will not have to stop or shift while on the slope. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for wheel weights or counterweights to improve stability. Use extra care with grass baggers or other attachments, they can change the stability of the machine. Keep all movement on the slopes slow and gradual. Do not make sudden changes in speed or direction. Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If tires lose traction, turn off the blades and proceed slowly straight down the slope. Do not turn on slopes unless absolutely necessary, then only turn slowly and gradually downhill, if possible. Do not mow drop–offs, ditches or embankments. A wheel over the edge or an edge caving in could cause a sudden overturn and an injury or death. Do not mow on wet grass. Reduced traction could cause sliding. Do not try to stabilize the machine by putting your foot on the ground. Do not use a grass bagger or other rear mounted accessories on steep slopes (greater than 10 degrees).

DO NOT
1. 2.

3. 4. 5.

III. Children

Tragic accidents can occur if the operator is not alert to the presence of children. Children are often attracted to the machine and the mowing activity. NEVER assume that children will remain where you last saw them. 1. Keep children out of the mowing area and in the watchful care of another responsible adult. 2. Be alert and turn the engine off if children enter the area. 3. Before and when backing, look behind and down for small children. 4. Never carry children or any passengers, even with the blades off. They may fall off and be seriously injured or interfere with the safe operation of the machine. 5. Never allow children to operate the machine. Instruct children in the potential dangers of the machine. 6. Use extra care when approaching blind corners, shrubs, trees or other objects that may obscure vision. Use extra care when handling gasoline and other fuels. Fuels are flammable and the vapors are explosive. a. Use only an approved container. b. Never remove the gas cap or add fuel with the engine running. Allow the engine to cool for several minutes before refueling. Do not smoke. c. Never refuel the machine indoors. d. Never store the machine with fuel in the tank or fuel container inside where there is an open flame, such as a water heater. 2. Never start or run the engine inside a closed area. 3. Keep all nuts and bolts, especially the blade attachment nuts tight. Frequently check the blade(s) for wear or damage such as cracks and nicks. A blade that is bent or damaged must be immediately replaced with an original equipment blade from an authorized service dealer. For safety, replace the blade every two years. Keep the equipment in good condition. 4. Never tamper with the safety devices. Check their proper operation regularly. 5. To reduce fire hazards, keep the machine free of grass, leaves or other debris build–up. Clean up oil or fuel spills. Allow the machine to cool before storing. 6. Stop and inspect the equipment if you strike an object. Repair, if necessary, before restarting. 7. Never make adjustments or repairs with the engine running. The carburetor can be adjusted with the engine running. Do not change the engine governor settings or over–speed the engine. 8. Grass bagger components are subject to wear, damage and deterioration, which could expose moving parts or allow objects to be thrown. For storage, always make sure the grass bag is empty. Frequently check components and replace with manufacturer’s recommended parts when necessary. 9. Mower blade(s) are sharp and can cut. Wrap the blade(s) or wear gloves and use extra caution when servicing them or the blade housing area. 10. Check the brake operation frequently. Adjust and service as required. 11. Wait for all movement to stop before servicing any part of the unit. Look for this symbol to indicate important safety precautions. This symbol indicates: “Attention! Become Alert!

SAFE MOWING GUIDE
Each person that operates power equipment must learn to use correct and safe mowing procedures. To help you learn, carefully read the following pages. Most of the time the operator was not correctly shown or did not read the instructions on the unit or in the Instruction Book before using the unit. Also, some operators do not have enough experience. The result is unsafe use, endangering the operator, bystanders and the equipment. Another result can be a poor appearance of the area mowed. Read this book. Read the instructions on the unit. Operate the mower according to the Safe Mowing Guide. Follow all safety rules, cautions or warnings in this book and on the unit. Make sure anyone that uses the unit reads the instructions and is told how to safely operate the mower. controls and how they work. In an emergency, how fast you can stop the blade is important. Learn how to control the mower at all times. Many engines are started by hand. When you use a pull start or rope start, place your feet apart and away from the blade(s). Hold the rope handle tight. Never wrap the rope around your arm or fingers for a “better grip”. To start the engine, follow the instructions on the mower, in this book and in the engine operating instructions. For electric start engines, sit in the seat to start the engine. The battery can be dangerous. Follow the instructions on the battery, the acid container, and in this book when working with the battery. Even small batteries have enough voltage to cause an injury. Always be careful. The mower is designed to be operated by one person. Never let another person ride with you on the unit or on any accessories. A passenger will make the unit harder to control, block the visibility or distract the operator and is dangerous to the operator, the passenger and the equipment. Without a passenger seat, the passenger can fall from the mower or contact dangerous parts. A mower is not a toy for showing off or for giving rides.

The blade of a power mower rotates very fast. It can discharge rocks and other objects over a long distance which can be dangerous. The force of the objects can break windows, cause injuries or even put an eye out. Most of the time the injury is to a person, like a child. Keep every person completely away from the area to be mowed. Make sure the grass is not discharged toward anyone. Planning your mowing pattern has a double advantage. It can decrease the possibility of an injury and make the clean up after mowing easier.

The mower will give you good service and durability, if operated in normal conditions. If the mower is not correctly serviced or is used where the terrain is rough or unsuitable, product performance and safety will be decreased. Correct clothing is an important part of safe mowing. Safety glasses will protect the eyes from objects discharged by the mower. Safety shoes with steel plates can protect a foot from injury by the blade. For protection from objects discharged from the mower, wear clothing that will cover the arms and legs.

Never cut a wet lawn. Wet grass can cause an accident, affect mower performance and can cause problems with future lawn growth and appearance. Wet grass is slippery and can cause the mower to slip. Someone can get injured by touching the blade(s). Wet grass tends to clog the mower, causing poor discharge. Cut wet grass will collect on the lawn, retarding the growth of the grass. Also, getting the mower wet will cause parts to rust and decrease the life of the unit. When you look over the lawn, remember obstacles that cannot be removed, like pipes, stumps or rocks. Keep away from these obstacles that can cause damage to the mower or injury to the operator or a person near the mower. Clear the area of rocks, toys, wire or other loose objects. These items can damage the mower or can be discharged by the mower blade. 5

Check the terrain of the area to be mowed. Mow in a pattern that will keep you away from dangerous areas. Check the distance you need to stop and the distance available to turn. Slopes and rough terrain must be mowed carefully and some areas must not be mowed at all. With riding mowers, mow up and down the hill. When you must mow rough terrain or on slopes, never change directions or change gears and stop in these areas only in an emergency. Before you ride up or down a slope, try to back straight up the slope. Do not ride up or down a slope that is too steep to back straight up. See the “Guide” in the back of this Instruction Book to check any slopes.

Before you start cutting the grass, practice using the mower in a large open and level area. Learn the location of the controls on the mower. Know the purpose of the
