The engine stops when:
– the operator leaves his seat when the blades are engaged;
– the operator leaves his seat when the transmission is not in
"neutral";
– the operator leaves his seat with the transmission in "neutral" but
without engaging the parking brake;
– the grass-catcher is lifted or the stone-guard is removed when the

be avoided by keeping the push-button 4.7 pressed.
The table below shows various operating conditions, highlighting

5.3 PRELIMINARY OPERATIONS BEFORE STARTING WORK

Before starting to work it is necessary to carry out several checks and
operations to ensure that the work gives the best results and is done
in maximum safety.
5.3.1 Seat adjustment
HF2•••◊B•
To adjust the seat position, the
four fixing screws (1) must be
loosened. Move the seat along
the support slots.
When you find the desired po-
sition, tighten the four screws
(1).
HF2•••◊M•
HF2•••◊T•
The sliding seat can be ad-
justed onto six different posi-
tions.
The position is changed by
pulling up the handle (1) and
sliding the seat until it is locked
into the desired position.

5.3.2 Tyre pressure
Unscrew the hubcaps and connect
the valve caps to a compres sed air
line with a gauge.
Proper tyre pressure levels arevi-
tal for perfect alignment of the cut-
ting deck and thus mows evenly.
The pressures are:
FRONT
1.5 bar (13 x 5.00-6)
1.0 bar (15 x 5.00-6)
REAR
1.2 bar
5.3.3 Filling with oil and fuel
IMPORTANT
Use oil SAE
10W30 and Petrol Unleaded
Euro 95.
IMPORTANT
Running
en gine with an insufficient a -
mount of oil can damage it very
seriously. The use of a non-de-
tergent or two-stroke engine oil
can reduce the life of the en-
gine.
On a flat surface and with the en-
gine off, remove the cap with the
dipstick and dry it. Push it fully in
without screwing it on, then take it
out and check the oil level. If the
level is close to or below the lower
limit (MIN) of the dipstick, top up
with the recommended oil until the
upper limit (MAX) is reached.
Screw the dipstick cap back on.
Refuel using a funnel. Avoid overfilling; filler neck has a max level
indication.
The tank's capacity is 5.4 litres.
NOTE
In the event of spilling on the body, quickly re-
move perol traces.
DANGER!
Refuelling should be carried out in an open or
well ventilated area with engine stopped. Always remember
that petrol fumes are inflammable. DO NOT TAKE A NAKED
FLAME TO THE TANKʼS OPENING IN ORDER TO SEE THE
TANKʼS CONTENTS AND DO NOT SMOKE WHEN REFU-
ELLING.
• Fuel containing alcohol
IMPORTANT
If you intend to use fuel with alcohol, ensure that
its octane number is at least as high as that recommended by
Honda (86). There are two types of fuel/alcohol mixtures: one con-
tains ethanol and the other methanol.
Do not use mixtures containing more than 10% ethanol, or fuel
containing methanol (methyl or wood alcohol), which do not con-
tain cosolvents, or corrosion inhibitors for methanol.
