Handy hints
On long grass, above 10cm (4 inches), use two
cuts to get a close finish. We recommend that
the first cut should be taken with the blade set at
maximum height of cut and the second taken
with it set at medium or close. This will prove to
be easier and give a better overall finish to
your lawn.

Care and maintenance

The advice given in this section covers the
general care and maintenance of the main
body of your mower. Advice relating to the
blades is given in "Maintenance of blades".
Warning! Do not use an extension cable
!
which shows signs of damage. Fit a new
cable completely - do not make any
permanent or temporary repairs.
Always keep your mower clean and free
from grass cuttings, especially the
underside of the cutter deck and the air
vents.
Check all electrical cables at regular
intervals, looking for signs of wear,
abrasion or other damage.
At the end of each cutting session we
recommend that the build up of grass on
the underside of the cutter cover is
removed using a blunt scraper.
Clean all plastic components with a
damp cloth.
Caution: Do not use solvents or cleaning
fluids as these may damage the plastic
components of your mower.
