Mowing (fig. F & G)
We recommend to use your mower as outlined in this section
in order to achieve optimum results and to reduce the risk of
cutting the mains cable.
Place the bulk of the mains cable on the lawn, close to
N
the starting point (position 1 in fig. F).
Switch the appliance on as described above.
N
Proceed as shown in fig. F:
N
Move from position 1 to position 2.
N
Turn right and proceed towards position 3.
N
Turn left and move towards position 4.
N
Repeat the above procedure as required.
N
Warning! Do not work towards the cable as shown in fig. G.
Emptying the grass bag
When you see loose grass scattering from beneath the
N
mower, empty the grass bag.
Warning! Never use the appliance without the grass bag.
Hints for optimum use
If the grass is longer than approx. 10 cm, make two cuts
N
to obtain a better finish. First mow at maximum height of
cut, then use a low or medium height of cut.
In order to achieve optimum results, only mow dry grass.
