SAFETY RULES
SAFE OPERATION
PRACTICES
FOR RIDE-ON
MOWERS
DO NOT:
Do not turn on slopes unless
necessary,
and then, turn slowly and gradually
downhill,
if possible.
Do not mow near drop-off,
ditches,
or
embankments.
The mower could suddenly
turn over if a wheel
is over the edge of a cliff
or ditch, or if an edge caves in.
Do not mow on wet grass.
Reduced
trac-
tion could cause sliding.
Do not try to stabilize
the machine
by
putting your foot on the ground.
Do not use grass catcher
on steep slopes.
Avoid starting
up or down a slop or hill with
excessive
ground speed. It is VERY difficult
to reduce your speed or maintain
control of
mower once you are going too fast.
II1. CHILDREN
Tragic accidents
can occur if the operator
is not
alert to the presence
of children.
Children
are
often attracted
to the machine
and the mowing
activity.
Never assume
that children
will remain
where you last saw them.
NEVER
allow children
to operate
the
machine.
Keep children out of the mowing
area and
under the watchful care of another respon-
sible adult.
Be alert and turn off the machine
if children
enter the area.
Before and when backing, look behind and
down for small children.
Never carry children. They may fall off and
be seriously injured or interfere with safe
machine operation.
Use extra care when approaching blind
corners, shrubs, trees, or other objects that
may obscure vision.
IV. SERVICE
The operation of any mower can result in
foreign
objects thrown into the eyes, which
can result in severe eye damage. Always
wear safety glasses or eye shields while
operating your mower or performing any
adjustments
or repairs.
We recommend
a
wide vision safety mask over spectacles
or
standard safety glasses.
Use extra care in handling gasoline and
other fuels. They are flammable
and vapors
are explosive.
- Use only an approved container.
- Never remove gas cap or add fuel with the
engine running. Allow engine to cool before
refueling.
- Do not smoke, when refueling
or handling
fuel.
- Never refuel the machine
indoors.
- Never store the machine
or fuel container
inside where there is an open flame,
such
as a water heater.
Never run a machine
inside a closed area.
Keep nuts and bolts, especially
blade
attachment
bolts, tight and keep equipment
in good condition.
Never tamper
with safety devices.
Check
there proper operation
regularly.
Keep machine
free of grass, leaves,
or other
debris buildup.
Clean oil or fuel spillage.
Allow machine
to cool before storing.
Stop and inspect the equipment
if you strike
an object.
Repair, if necessary,
before
restarting.
Never make adjustments
or repairs with the
engine running.
Grass catcher
components
are subject to
wear, damage,
and deterioration,
which
could expose moving
parts or allow objects
to be thrown.
Frequently
check components
and replace
with manufacturer's
recom-
mended
parts, when necessary.
Mower blades are sharp and can cut. Wrap
the blade(s)
or wear gloves, and use extra
caution
when servicing
them.
Check brake operation
frequently.
Adjust and
service
as required.
