2.2 IDENTIFICATION OF MAIN COMPONENTS
Various main components can be seen on the machine, and these
have the following functions:
1. Cutting deck: this is the guard enclosing the rotating blades.
2. Blades: these are what cut the grass. The wings at the ends
help convey the cut grass towards the collector channel.
3. Collector channel: this is the part connecting the cutting deck
to the grass-catcher.
4. Grass-catcher: as well as collecting the grass cuttings, this is
also a safety element in that it stops any objects drawn up by
the blades from being thrown outside of the machine.
5. Stone-guard or deflector (available as optional part): this

When unpacking the machine, take care to gather all individual parts
and fittings, and do not damage the cutting deck when ta king the ma-
chine off the base pallet.
The packing contents:
– the machine;
– the steering wheel;
– the seat;
– the front bumper (if fitted);
– the grass-catcher brackets;
– the grass-catcher components;
– the battery charger;
