DANGER!
pose for which it was designed (cutting and collection of
grass).
Using the machine in any other way is considered "impro per

Examples of improper use may include, but are not limited to:
– transport people, children or animals on the machine or on
a trailer;
– tow or push loads without the use of the specified acces-
sory for towing;
– use of the machine for moving over unstable, slippery,
icy, stony, rough, marshy ground and puddles that do not
allow for evaluation of the consistency of the ground;
– use of the machine for leaf or debris collection;
– use of the blades on surfaces other than grass.

necessary steps to ensure his own safety and that of o thers,
particularly on slopes or rough, slippery and unstable ground.

5.2 WHY THE SAFETY DEVICES CUT IN

The safety devices work in two ways:

have not been met;
– they stop the engine if even just one of the safety requirements
is lacking.
