above steps (forward speed remains

should be replaced.
ENGINE ZONE CONTROL
_k.CAUTION:
Federal regulations
require
an engine control to be installed on this
lawn mower in order to minimize the risk
of blade contact injury. Do not under
any circumstances
attempt to defeat the
function of the operator control. The blade
turns when the engine is running.
• Your lawn mower is equipped with an
operator presence control bar which
requires the operator to be positioned
behind the lawn mower handle to start
and operate the lawn mower.
DRIVE CONTROL
• Self-propelling
is controlled
by holding
the operator presence control bar down
to the handle and pulling either drive
control lever rearward to the handle.
The further toward the handle a lever is
pulled, the faster the unit will travel.
• Forward motion will stop when either
the operator presence control bar or a
drive control lever are released. To stop
forward motion without stopping engine,
release a drive control lever only. Hold
operator presence control bar down
against handle to continue mowing
without self-propelling.
NOTE: If after releasing the drive control
the mower will not roll backwards,
push
the mower forward slightly to disengage
drive wheels.
