Do not allow anyone to enter the operating DANGER ZONE with you. The danger zone is an area 20 metres in radius Insist that persons in the RISK ZONE beyond the danger zone wear eye protection from thrown objects. If the unit must be used where there are unprotected people, operate at a low throttle speed to reduce the risk of thrown objects. DANGER ZONE WITHIN 20 METRES - RISK ZONE GREATER THAN 20 METRES ENGINE STARTING & STOPPING PROCEDURE WARNING: Prior to operating, ensure all bolts, screws & nuts are securely tightened.

  • Page 13 STARTING (WARM/HOT ENGINE) Make sure your mower is on safe, flat surface (a paved area or path is ideal, avoid thick wet grass & gravel surfaces) away from fuel or fueling area. Move the throttle control level to the RUN position (Fig 2). Firmly hold the OPC/Brake lever against the top handle with your left hand (Fig 4), and then with your right handle, pull the recoil starter cord until you feel resistance. Then apply a vigorous pull with one positive action. Guide the cord back to its rest position, do not let the rope fling back. Repeat if the engine does not start. STOPPING Gradually release the OPC/Brake lever, until the engine stops. CUTTING COLLECT Remove the mulch plug, put the side discharge cover into the closed position and place the grass collector onto the rear of the machine. Grass will discharge into the grass collector. SIDE DISCHARGE Remove the mulch plug and grass collector. Put the side discharge cover into the open position and fit the side discharge chute. Grass will discharge onto your lawn at the side of the machine. MULCH Put the side discharge cover into the closed position. Fit the mulch plug into the rear discharge chute. The grass collector can be fitted for convenience. The grass will then be dispersed under the lawnmower into your lawn in fine cuttings. This is a natural feed for your lawn. CUTTING HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT WARNING: Always turn the mower off, before adjusting the cutting height. For best results, adjust the cutting height of your mower to suit your lawn conditions. Do not try to cut too much grass in one pass. Adjustment of the cutting height is made centrally. Turn off the mower and take the weight of the mower by lightly lifting the bottom handle crossbar. Take hold of the Cutting Height Adjustment Lever, positioned on the mower’s right-hand rear wheel. Move the lever outwards to release it from its locating notch. Move the lever towards the front of the machine to increase the cutting height and towards the rear to reduce the cutting height. Return the lever to the locating notch to set the desired cutting height. Make sure the handle fits snugly and securely into its serrated holder (fig 9).

  • Page 15 MAINTENANCE WARNING: Before inspecting, cleaning, or servicing the machine, disconnect the Spark Plug from the machine. Failure to follow the instructions can result in serious personal injury or property damage. CLEANING WARNING: Turn off your mower before undertaking any cleaning. Cut grass is damp. Regular cleaning after each use will ensure better functioning of the machine and reduce the risk of corrosion or seizure. Having finished mowing allow the engine to cool, then remove the accumulated grass clippings from and around the engine with a brush. Clean the grass collector annually with a brush or gently spray water and allow to dry. Clean the underneath of the deck regularly – disconnect the spark plug and tilt the machine backwards. Remove the cut grass with a scraper or brush. DO NOT USE pressure washers or hot water to clean the mower. Dry off the machine before storing, by leaving it running for a few minutes on a flat, clean surface to prevent corrosion or seizure. STORING YOUR MOWER Store the mower in a dry, well ventilated area away from flames, sparks, or heat sources. Disconnect the spark plug. Avoid storing underneath a tarpaulin or similar cover as it may cause condensation resulting in corrosion. Winter storage: thoroughly clean the mower. Run the engine outdoors until the fuel tank is empty). Alternatively, use a suction pump to remove with the engine off and run the engine until the remaining fuel is consumed. Turn the fuel tap to OFF. Dispose of discarded fuel safely & responsibly. Remove the spark plug, pour a tablespoon of SAE30 or 10W/30 4-stroke engine oil into the cylinder opening. Gently pull the recoil rope several times to distribute oil around the engine, to protect the cylinder over winter. Replace and tighten the spark plug. TRANSPORTING THE MOWER Ensure the fuel tank is empty. Run the engine until any remaining fuel is consumed. Allow the engine to cool.
  • Page 16 INSTRUCTION MANUAL BLADE MAINTENANCE WARNING: Blades are sharp. When handling the blade assembly, wear non-slip, heavy-duty protective gloves. Do not place your naked hand or fingers on the blade or in any position where they could get cut. NEVER touch the blades or service the unit when the engine is running. SHARPENING Never attempt to sharpen the blade yourself. The blade must remain balanced; an unbalanced blade will cause excessive vibration through the machine. Always have a blade sharpened by a professional garden machinery specialist. Always check for any damage before each use and replace a damaged blade immediately, with an approved replacement part. CHANGE – (TWO PERSON OPERATION) Disconnect the spark plug cap & remove the fuel and oil. Tilt the mower on its side with air filter side uppermost. Firmly grip the blade with the gloved hand and remove the blade bolt, blade washer, blade and blade housing. Check all the components to ensure they are undamaged. When refitting the blade, ensure the turned-up edges of the blade are turned up towards the machine. When replacing the blade, the blade bolt should also be replaced. A damaged or unbalanced blade will cause excessive vibration and should be replaced immediately. AIR FILTER Inspect the air filter each time the engine is operated. You will need to clean the air filter more frequently if you operate the engine in very dusty areas. Always replace with genuine replacement parts. NOTE: Operating the engine without an air cleaner, or with a damaged air cleaner, will allow dirt to enter the engine, causing rapid engine wear. This type of damage is not covered under the Warranty Remove the air filter cover lid & remove the foam filter cartridge. Clean the cartridge in warm water containing a few drops of washing-up liquid, until it is clean & free from all grease & dust. Rinse the cartridge in clean water & gently squeeze to remove water. Let it air dry naturally. Clean the cover & inside of the air filter box with a clean lint-free cloth. Apply a uniform layer of oil to the outside of the cartridge filter with a brush (you can use clean engine oil). Insert the filter cartridge into its housing and replace the filter lid, ensuring that each component is properly installed.
  • Page 17 SPARK PLUG Check the spark plug initially after the first five hours of mower use. Thereafter, maintenance of the sparkplug should take place every 25 hours. Remove the spark plug cap (Fig.15) using a rotary motion & then remove the spark plug with the wrench provided (Fig.16). Clean off any carbon deposits using a copper brush and check the electrode gap with a feeler gauge (the gap should be 0.7 mm). Replace and tighten the serviced spark plug and replace the cap. If the spark plug is worn or damaged, replace with a new spark plug of the same or suitable type for the engine. If in doubt, contact your point of purchase or local dealer.
