SAFETY RULES
Safe Operation
Practices
for Ride-On Mowers
Be sure the area is clear of other people before mowing.
Stop machine if anyone enters the area,
Never carry passengers
or children even with the blades
off.
Do not mow in reverse unless absolutely necessary. Always
look down and behind before and while backing.
Never carry children. They may fall off and be seriously
injured or interfere with safe machine operation.
Keep children out of the mowing area and under the
watchful care of another responsible adult.
Be alert and turn machine off if children enter the area.
Before and when backing, look behind and down for small
children,
Mow up and down slopes (15 ° Max), not across.
Remove obstacles such as rocks, tree limbs, etc,
Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps. Uneven terrain could
overturn the machine. Tall grass can hide obstacles.
Use slow speed. Choose a low gear so that you will not have
to stop or shift while on the slope.
Avoid starting or stopping on a slope. If tires lose traction,
disengage
the blades end proceed slowly straight down
the slope.
if machine stops while going uphill, disengage blades, shift
into reverse and back down slowly.
Do not tum on slopes unless necessary,
and then, turn
slowly and gradually downhill, if possible.
