- BLADE
THRUST
When the spin-
ning
blade contacts anything it does not cut, a dan-
gerous reaction can occur causing the entire unit and
operator to be thrust violently in any direction.
This
reaction is called Blade Thrust. As a result, the op.
erator can lose control of the unit. Use handlebar,
shoulder
strap,
and
keep
shield
in place.
Make
sure others
are at least
30 feet (10 me-
ters)
away.
Keep
blade
sharp.
Cut at full
throttle
and
from
your
right
to left.
Keep
hands,
feet and unit in proper
position;
refer
to "Guard
Against
Blade
Thrust."

sory

ways wear safety leg guards and boots. Keep others
