    Many people are injured because they “forgot” and reached into the discharge chute. Always treat your lawn mower as if the blade is rotating. Never perform any service or try to make any adjustment,except carburetor, while the en- gine is running.

    Use only original equipment or approved sub- stitutions as service parts. If you need profes- sional service, select a shop that is an Authorized Service Center for your brand of mower. If you plan to service the unit yourself, follow directions in the Instruction Book. As you mow, remember children and pets are sometimes attracted to the activity.
