OTHER
• Do not store gasoline
from one season
to another.
• Replace your gasoline
can if your can
starts to rust.
Rust and/or
dirt in your
gasoline
will cause problems.
• If possible,
store your unit indoors
and
cover it to protect
it from dust and dirt.
• Cover your unit with a suitable
protective
cover that does not retain moisture.
Do
not use plastic.
Plastic cannot
breathe,
which allows condensation
to form and
will cause your unit to rust.
IMPORTANT:
Never cover mower while
engine and exhaust
areas are still warm.
_CAUTION:
Never store the lawn mower
with gasoline
in the tank inside a building
where fumes
may reach an open flame
or spark.
Allow the engine to cool before
storing
in any enclosure.
