iV. MAINTENANCE
AND STORAGE
Keep all nuts, bolts and screws tight to be sure the equip-
ment is in safe working condition.
Never store the equipment with petrol in the tank inside
a building where fumes may reach an open flame or
spark.
Allow the engine to cool before storing in any enclo-
sure.
To reduce the fire hazard, keep the engine, silencer, bat-
tery compartment and petrol storage area free of grass,
leaves, or excessive grease.
Check the grass catcher frequently
for wear or dete-
rioration.
Replace worn or damaged parts for safety.
If the fuel tank has to be drained, this should be done
outdoors.
On multi-bladed
machines, take care as rotating one
blade can cause other blades to rotate.
When machine is to be parked, stored or left unattended,
lower the cutting means unless a positive mechanical
lock is used.

WARNING: Always disconnect spark plug wire and
place wire where it cannot contact spark
plug in
order to prevent accidental
starting when setting
