INTRODUCTION
Dear Customer,
We thank you for having purchased our riding mower and hope that it will fully
meet all your expectations.
This manual has been compiled in order that you may get to know your ma-
chine and to be able to use it safely and efficiently. Donʼt forget that the man-
ual forms an integral part of the machine so keep it handy so that it can be
consulted at any time, and pass it on to the purchaser if you resell the ma-
chine.
Your new machine has been designed and made in line with current regu-
lations, and is safe and reliable if used for cutting and collecting grass ob-
serving the indications given in this manual (proper usage). Using the ma-
chine in any other way or ignoring the instructions for safe usage,
maintenance or repair, is considered "incorrect usage" (Chap. 5) which will
invalidate the guarantee, and the manufacturer will decline all responsibility,
placing the blame with the user for damage or injury to himself or others in
such cases.
If you should find any slight differences between the description and your own
machine, bear in mind that, since there are continual improvements to the
product, information contained in this manual may be modified without prior
warning and without the obligation to update it, although the essential safety
and function characteristics will remain unaltered. In case of any doubts, do
not hesitate to contact your Dealer.
After-Sales Service
This manual gives all the necessary instructions for using the machine and
the basic maintenance that may be carried out by the user. For all informa-
tion not contained here, contact your Dealer.
