Hex Screw

Idler Pulley

Figure 12

Off-SeasonStorage

If the tiller will not be used for a period longer than 30 days, the following steps should be taken to prepare the tiller for storage.

Clean the exterior of engine and the entire tiller thoroughly. Lubricate the tiller as described in the lubrication instructions.

We do not recommend the use of pressure washers to clean your unit. They may cause damage to electric components, spindles, pulleys, bearings or the engine. The use of pressure washers will result in shortened life and reduce serviceability.

Refer to the engine manual for correct engine storage instructions.

Wipe tines with oiled rag to prevent rust.

Store tiller in a clean, dry area. Do not store next to corrosive materials, such as fertilizer.

NOTE: When storing any type of power equipment in an unventilated or metal storage shed, care should be taken to rustproof the equipment. Using a light oil or silicone, coat the equipment and especially any springs, bearings, and cables.

You assume the risk and liability for loss, damage, or injury to you and your property and/or to others and their property arising out of the misuse or inability to use the product.

This limited warranty shall not extend to anyone other than the original purchaser or to the person for whom it was purchased as a gift.
