ventilation when handling fuel.
Petrol
Use good quality unleaded petrol. Leaded petrol can be
used if unleaded petrol is not available.
Fuel should be at least 91 RON.
If the machine is not used for some time the fuel tank
should be emptied and cleaned.
Engine oil
Check the oil level before starting the lawn mower. A too low
oil level can cause serious damage to the engine.
For the best result and function use a high quality SAE30
four-stroke engine oil.
Never use oil intended for two-stroke engines.
Check the oil level before starting the lawn mower. A too low
oil level can cause serious damage to the engine.
Oil level
Unscrew the oil filler cap and check the oil level on the dipstick
fitted to the cover.
The oil filler cap must be completely screwed down to give a
correct indication of the oil level.
If the oil level is low, fill using engine oil up to the upper level
on the dipstick.
Only use recommended engine oil. See the Technical data
section.

FUEL HANDLING

Fuelling
!
Do not fill too much petrol. Leave about 35 mm under the filler
cap so that the fuel can expand.
Clean around the fuel cap. Clean the fuel and oil tank
regularly. The fuel filter should be changed at least once a
year. Contamination in the tanks causes malfunction.
Always move the machine about 3 metres from the refuelling
position before starting.
WARNING! Taking the following precautions,
will lessen the risk of fire:
Do not smoke or place hot objects near fuel.
Always shut off the engine before refuelling.
When refuelling, open the fuel cap slowly so
that any excess pressure is released gently.
Tighten the fuel cap carefully after refuelling.
Always move the machine away from the
refuelling area before starting.
