    DO NOT: Do not mow near drop-offs, ditches, or em- bankments. The operator could lose footing or balance. Do not mow excessively steep slopes. Do not mow on wet grass.

    Every person who uses power equipment must learn the difference between proper and improper use, safe and unsafe mowing prac- tices. Read the next few pages carefully. They can help you learn. Too often the mow- er user is inexperienced, not properly in- structed, or has not read the Instruction Book and instructions on the unit before using it for the first time.

    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.
