Please follow the below mowing instructions;

  • Do not mow areas that have water standing or that are wet, it will cause ruts in the runway.

  • If you do find a wet spot while mowing, go as slow as possible.  This is the best way to avoid making ruts in the runway.

  • Do not mow any areas that have recently been filled in and are soft.  If you canít walk on them, you probably canít mow them.

To start mower

  • Check gas and oil before starting.

  • Hold down brake pedal.

  • Pull out choke.

  • Put throttle to Ĺ position.

  • Start motor.

  • When motor starts, push choke in immediately and raise throttle to full position so engine does not flood, you may have to pull the choke out for a second then push it back in to keep it running. Do not leave choke out while engine is running or it will flood and take a long time to get restarted.

  • Mow with mower deck on level 4.

  • Engage blades by slowing pushing handle on left side to steering wheel forward.

The upper part of the runway is never much of a problem to mow. If you can not mow part or all of the bottom section, it is no big deal. Do not try to mow areas that are wet just to get it done. They can always be done later.
