STORAGE
Immediately
prepare your mower for storage
at
the end of the season or if the mower will not be
used for 30 days or more.
After cleaning,
leave cables
disconnected
and place cables where
they cannot
come in contact
with battery
terminals.
If battery
is removed
from mower for
storage,
do not store battery
directly on
concrete
or damp surfaces.
MOWER
When mower is to be stored for a period of time,
clean it thoroughly,
remove all dirt, grease,
leaves, etc. Store in a clean, dry area.
Clean entire mower (See "CLEANING"
in
the Customer
Responsibilities
section
of
this manual).
Inspect and replace
belts, if necessary
(See belt replacement
instructions
in the
Service
and Adjustments
section
of this
manual).
Lubricate
as shown in the Customer
Responsibilities
section
of this manual.
Be sure that all nuts, bolts and screws
are securely
fastened.
Inspect moving
parts for damage,
breakage
and wear.
Replace
if necessary.
Touch up all rusted or chipped
paint
surfaces;
sand lightly before painting.
BATTERY
Fully charge
the battery for storage.
After a period of time in storage,
battery
may require
recharging.
To help prevent corrosion
and power
leakage
during long periods
of storage,
battery cables should
be disconnected
and battery cleaned
thoroughly
(see "TO
CLEAN
BATTERYAND
TERMINALS"
in
the Customer
Responsibilities
section
of
this manual).
ENGINE
FUEL SYSTEM
IT IS IMPORTANT
TO PREVENT
GUM DEPOS-
ITS FROM FORMING
IN ESSENTIAL
FUEL
SYSTEM
PARTS SUCH AS CARBURETOR,
FUEL FILTER,
FUEL HOSE, OR TANK DURING
STORAGE.
ALSO, EXPERIENCE
INDICATES
THATALCOHOL
BLENDED
FUELS (CALLED
GASOHOL
OR USING ETHANOL
OR METHA-
NOL) CAN ATTRACT
MOISTURE
WHICH
LEADS TO SEPARATION
AND FORMATION
OF
ACIDS
DURING
STORAGE.
ACIDIC GAS CAN
DAMAGE
THE FUEL SYSTEM
OF AN ENGINE
WHILE
IN STORAGE.
Drain the fuel tank.
Start the engine and let it run until the fuel
lines and carburetor
are empty.
Never use engine or carburetor
cleaner
products
in the fuel tank or permanent
damage
may occur.
Use fresh fuel next season.
NOTE:
Fuel stabilizer
is an acceptable
alterna-
tive in minimizing
the formation
of fuel gum
deposits
during storage. Add stabilizer
to gaso-
line in fuel tank or storage container.
Always
follow the mix ratio found on stabilizer
container.
Run engine at least 10 minutes
after adding
stabilizer
to allow the stabilizer
to reach the
carburetor.
Do not drain the gas tank and carbu-
retor if using fuel stabilizer.
ENGINE
OIL
Drain oil (with engine warm) and replace with
clean engine oil. (See "ENGINE"
in the Customer

section
of this manual).
