Safety Instructions
All Operators Must Read These
Instructions Before Use
Always follow these safety guidelines. Failure to do so may
result in serious bodily injury or death.
General Safety WARNINGS!
When using electric lawn mowers, basic safety precautions
should always be followed to reduce the risk of re, electric
shock, and personal injury, including the following:
m WARNING: Risk of injury could occur if the lawn mower
is operated without the catcher assembly attached.
m WARNING: The use of any other accessory or
attachment might increase the risk of injury.
m WARNING: To reduce the risk of injury, inspect
catcher assembly frequently and replace with recommended
replacement if there are signs of wear or deterioration.
Before using the mower, take the time to familiarize yourself
with the controls, especially how to stop the mower in an
emergency. Only allow individuals who have a thorough
understanding of these instructions and operation of the
mower to use the mower. Never allow children to operate
the mower.
Retain this manual for future reference and reread it at the start
of each mowing season.
1. Only use identical replacement parts when servicing
the mower.
2. Polarized Appliance Connections reduce the risk of
electric shock. This mower has a polarized plug (one
blade is wider than the other) and will require the use of
a polarized extension cord. There is only one way the
mower’s plug will t into a polarized extension. If the
plug does not t fully into the extension cord, reverse
the plug. If the plug still does not t, obtain a correct
polarized extension cord. A polarized extension cord
will require the use of a polarized wall outlet. There is
only one way the plug will t into a polarized wall outlet.
If the plug does not t fully into the wall outlet, reverse
the plug. If the plug still does not t, contact a qualied
electrician to install the proper wall outlet. Do not
change the equipment plug, extension cord receptacle,
or extension cord plug in anyway.
m Contact with moving parts may cause entanglement,
dismemberment, or other serious bodily injury. Always
keep body parts (i.e.: hands, feet) at a distance from
moving parts. Ensure all covers and guards are securely in
place before use.
Hot surfaces (i.e.: the motor) may ignite ammable or
combustible items and cause a re or explosion resulting
in serious injury. Keep the mower at a distance from
ammable or combustible items until surfaces that are
hot have completely cooled. Do not store mower near
ammable or combustible items.
A damaged blade or worn blade nut may break off the
mower assembly and cause serious injury. Replace the
damaged blade or blade nut before using the mower.
1. Avoid dangerous conditions. Do not use the mower in
the rain or when the grass is damp or wet.
2. Always keep children and spectators at a safe distance
from the mower during operation and as the machine
cools down.
3. Always wear personal safety gear (i.e.: glasses, rubber
gloves, protective footwear and dust mask) and proper
clothing when using the mower. Loose clothing, long
hair or jewelry may get caught in the moving parts.
4. Do not use lawn mower for any purpose except that for
which it is intended.
5. Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection should
be provided on the circuit(s) or outlet(s) to be used for
the lawn mower. Receptacles are available having
built-in GFCI protection and may be used for this
measure of safety.
6. To prevent electric shock use only with an extension
cord suitable for outdoor use, such as SW, SOW, STW,
EXCEPTION: This warning does not apply to a battery
operated lawn mower.
7. Ensure the extension cord set is in good condition.
When using an extension cord, be sure to use one
heavy enough to carry the current your product will
draw. For lengths less than 100 feet, No. 14 AWG
extension cord should be used. An under sized cord
will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of
power and overheating.
8. To reduce the likelihood of disconnection of lawn
mower cord set during operation:
i) Make a knot as shown in Figure 1, or
ii) Use one of the plug-receptacle retaining straps or
connectors described in this manual. Know Your
Lawn Mower.
