Operating the Collection System NEVER USE THE COLLECTION SYSTEM WITHOUT THE BLOWER ASSEMBLY AND HOSES SECURELY ATTACHED. Make sure hoses are connected at both ends. Inspect hoses prior to each use. Do not use the unit on slopes greater than 10 degrees.
SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE Transport WARNING The collection system bags must be com- pletely empty or removed while driving for- ward onto a trailer. If the mower must be loaded onto a trailer while there is still de- bris in the container, the mower must be backed up onto the trailer to avoid tipping.
SERVICE AND MAINTENANCE Caring For Hoses 1. Inspect hoses before each use. If hoses have excessive wear, tears, or punctures, replace immediately. 2. To prolong the life of the hose, periodically ro- tate hose and turn hose end to end. Refer to Preventative Maintenance Schedule in this manual.
