If the unit will be stored for 30 days or more at the end of the season, the following steps are recommended to prepare it for storage. Always refer to the operator's manual for important details if the unit is to be stored for an extended period.

Please refer to the engine operator's manual for engine storage information.

Fire and explosion hazard

Gasoline is highly flammable and its vapors are explosive. Fumesmaytraveltoadistantignitionsourceandanexplosion and/or fire may result.

Handle gasoline carefully. Never store the unit, with fuel in the tank, indoors or in a poorly ventilated enclosure where fuel fumes could reach an open flame, spark, pilot light, such as a furnace, water heater, or clothes dryer.

• Thoroughly clean the unit.

• Lubricate all lubrication points (see Maintenance section).

• Makesureallnuts,bolts,andscrewsaresecurelyfastened.


Inspect all visible moving parts for damage, breakage, and


wear. Replace if necessary.


• Touch up all rusted or chipped paint surfaces; sand lightly


before painting.

• If possible, store your unit indoors and cover it to give


protection from dust and dirt.

Checking Tire Pressure



Tire pressure should be checked periodically. Recommended



tire pressure varies by tire manufacturer. A good rule of thumb



is to inflate the tire up to, but not exceeding, the "Max Inflation"



stamped the side-wallof the tire.
