The condition of the spark
plug is affected by:
• An incorrect carburettor
• An incorrect fuel mixture
(too much or faulty oil).
• A dirty air filter.
These factors cause deposits
on the spark plug electrode
that may result in malfunc-

If the machine is low on power, difficult to start or runs

Filing the grass blade
• See the cutting
for correct filing
• The blades are sharpened
using a single cut flat file.
• Sharpen all edges equally
to maintain the balance
of the blade.
Always stop the engine before starting
work on any part of the cutting equipment.
This continues to rotate even after the
throttle has been released. Ensure that the
cutting equipment has stopped completely
and remove the cable from the spark plug
before you start to work on it.
Always discard a blade that is bent,
twisted, cracked, shattered or damaged in
any other way. Never attempt to straighten
a twisted blade for use again. Only use
original blades of the prescribed type.
