Adjusting the cutting height
Adjusting the Cutting Height â¢ Never use more than 2 cutting height spacers. â¢ Spacers can only be fitted between the blade and the fan and never between blade and the bolt (R). 1. Ensure the Operator Presence Control is released, when the engine has stopped rotating - disconnect the spark plug lead. 2. Close the fuel tap (L). T urn your lawnmower on its side. 3. Remove the blade bolt (R1) and blade (R2) as described in âRemoving the Blade and Fanâ. 4. For a Lower Cut - Add spacers (R3) to a maximum of 2. 5. For a Higher Cut - Take spacers (R3) away. 6. Refit the blade as described in âFitting the Blade and Fanâ. How to Mow 1. Place the handle in the mowing position (C3). 2. Mow twice a week in the growing season. Y our lawn will suffer if more than one third of its length is cut at one time. â¢ Keep hands and feet away from the blade, a rotating blade cannot be seen. â¢ Mowing on banks and slopes can be dangerous. Do not mow on steep slopes. â¢ Always keep your feet on flat ground with the mower below you on the slope and with the spark plug uppermost to avoid lubricating oil running into the cylinder. Do not use this mower on slopes which are wet or more than 450 from horizontal. Never push the mower up the slope.
