Changing the oil

The engine oil should be changed each year and every 25
working hours.
When changing the oil proceed as follows:
Empty the fuel tank by running the machine until the tank
is empty.
Disconnect the ignition lead from the spark plug.
Unscrew the oil filler cap.
Use the oil pump (accessory) to empty the oil tank.
Ask where you can dispose of surplus engine oil at your
local petrol station.
Fill with new engine oil of a good quality. See the Technical
data section.
Check the oil level with the dipstick on the oil filler cap.
The oil filler cap must be completely screwed down to give
a correct picture of the oil level. If the oil level is low, fill
using engine oil up to the upper level on the dipstick.
Screw on the oil filler cap.
