TO ADJUST CUTTING HEIGHT
See "TO ADJUST CUTTING HEIGHT" in
the Operation sec tion of this manual.
REAR DEFLECTOR
The rear defl ector, attached between the
rear wheels of your mower, is provided to
minimize the possibility that objects will
be thrown out of the rear of the mower
into the operator mowing position. If the
defl ector becomes dam aged, it should be
replaced.
TO ADJUST HANDLE
The handle can be mounted in a high or
low position. The mounting holes in the
bottom of lower handle are off center for
raising or lowering the handle.
1. Remove upper handle and wire tie(s)
securing cable(s) to lower handle.
2. Remove hairpin cotters from lower
handle bracket mount ing pin.
3. Remove bolts and nuts.
4. Squeeze lower handle in to remove it
from mounting pins.
5. Turn lower handle over to raise or
lower handle.
6. Squeeze lower handle in and po si tion
holes onto mount ing pins on handle
bracket.
7. Reinstall bolts and nuts.
8. Reassemble upper handle and all parts
removed from lower handle.
• Clean engine often to keep trash from
accumulating. A clogged engine runs
hotter and shortens engine life.
• Keep fi nished surfaces and wheels free
of all gasoline, oil, etc.
• With the exception of the water washout
port (if equipped), we do not recommend
using a garden hose to clean the outside
of your lawn mower unless the elec tri cal
system, muffl er, air fi lter and carburetor
are covered to keep water out. Water in
engine can result in shortened engine life.
