Safety
Interlock
System Tests
This unit is equipped with safety interlock switches and
other safety devices. These safety systems are present
for your safety: do not attempt to bypass safety switches,
and never tamper with safety devices.
WARNING
if the unit does not pass a safety test, do not
operate it. See your authorized dealer.
Oil Recommendations
We recommend the use of Briggs & Stratton Warranty
Certified oils for best performance. Other high-quality
detergent oils are acceptable if classified for service SF,
SG, SH, SJ or higher. Do not use special additives.
Outdoor temperatures determine the proper oil viscosity
for the engine. Use the chart to select the best viscosity
for the outdoor temperature range expected.

Mower blades and mower drive belt should come to a
complete stop within five seconds after electric PTO
switch is turned OFF. If mower drive belt does not stop
within five seconds, contact Sears Service.
Test 5 _ Check Reverse Mow Option (RMO)
• Engine should shut off if reverse travel is attempted
if the PTO has been switched on and RMO has not
been activated.
RMO light should illuminate when RMO has been
activated.
NOTE: Once the engine has stopped, the PTO switch
must be turned off after the operator returns to the seat in
order to start the engine.
WARNING

can be hazardous
to bystanders.
Tragic accidents
can occur if the operator

RMO if children are present.

activity.
