THE FOLLOWING
SAFETY
INSTRUCTIONS

I. GENERAL
OPERATION
Read, understand
and follow all instruc-
tions in the manual
and on the machine
before starting.
Only allow responsible
adults, who are
familiar with the instructions,
to operate
the
machine.
Clear the area of objects
such as rocks,
stones,
toys, wire, etc., which could be
picked up and thrown by the blades.
Be sure the area is clear of all people and
pets before mowing.
Stop the machine
if
anyone
enters the area.
Never carry passengers.
Do not mow in reverse
unless absolutely
necessary.
Always
look down and behind
before and while backing.
Be aware of the mower discharge
direction
and do not direct it towards
anyone.
Do not
operate
the mower without either the entire
grass catcher
or the guard in place.
Slow down before turning.
Never leave the machine
unattended
when
the engine is running. Always
turn off the
blades, set the parking
brake, stop the
engine and remove
the key before leaving
the machine.
Turn off blades when not mowing.
Stop engine before removing
grass catcher
or unclogging
chute.
Mow only in daylight or good artificial
light.
Do not operate
the machine while under the
influence
of alcohol or drugs.
Watch out for traffic when operating
near or
crossing
roadways.
Use extra care when loading and unloading
the machine
onto a trailer or truck.
Data indicates
that operators,
age 60 years
and above, are involved in a large percent-
age of riding mower-related
injuries. These
operators
should evaluate
their ability to
operate
the riding mower safely enough to
protect themselves
and others from serious
injury.
Keep machine
free of grass, leaves or other
debris buildup which can touch hot exhaust/
engine parts and burn. Do not allow the
mower deck to plow leaves or other debris
which can cause buildup to occur. Clean
any oil or fuel spillage
before operating
or
storing the machine.
Allow machine
to cool
before storage.
I1. SLOPE OPERATION
Slopes
are a major factor related
to loss-of-
control and tip-over accidents, which can result
in severe injury or death. All slopes require extra
caution. If you cannot back up the slope or if you
feel uneasy on it, do not mow it.
DO:
Mow up and down slopes,
not across.
Remove obstacles
such as rocks, tree
limbs, etc.
Watch for holes, ruts, or bumps.
Uneven
terrain could overturn the machine. Tall
grass can hide obstacles.
Use a slow speed while on a slope.
Use extra care with grass catchers or other
attachments.
These can change the
stability
of the machine.
Keep all movement
on the slopes slow and
gradual.
Do not make sudden changes in
speed or direction.
Avoid starting or stopping
on a slope. If tires
lose traction, disengage the blades and
proceed slowly straight
down the slope.
