SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

ENGLISH

TRAINING

• Read the instructions carefully. Be familiar with the controls and the proper use of the equipment.

 

 

• Never allow children or people unfamiliar with these instructions to use the mower. Local regulations may restrict the

 

age of the operator.

 

• Never mow while people, especially children, or pets are nearby.

 

• Keep in mind that the operator or user is responsible for accidents or hazards occurring to other people or their property.

PREPARATION

While mowing, always wear substantial footwear and long trousers. Do not operate the equipment when barefoot or wearing open sandals.

Thoroughly inspect the area where the equipment is to be used and remove all stones, sticks, wires, bones and other foreign objects.

WARNING - Petrol is highly flammable. Take the following precautions:

-Store fuel in containers specially designed for this purpose.

-Refuel outdoors only and do not smoke while refuelling.

-Add fuel before starting the engine. Never remove the cap of the fuel tank or add petrol while the engine is running or when the engine is hot.

-If petrol is spilled, do not attempt to start the engine but move the machine away from the area of spillage and avoid creating any source of ignition until petrol vapours have dissipated.

-For reasons of safety the petrol tank and tank cap lock must be replaced if damaged.

Replace faulty silencers.

Before using, always visually inspect to see that the blades, blade bolts and cutter assembly are not worn or damaged. Replace worn or damaged blades in sets to preserve balance.

On multibladed machines, take care as rotating one blade can cause other blades to rotate.

OPERATION

 

• Do not operate the engine in a confined space where dangerous carbon monoxide fumes can collect.

 

• Mow only in daylight or in good artificial light.

 

• Avoid operating the equipment in wet grass, where feasible.

 

• Always be sure of your footing on slopes.

 

• Walk, never run.

 

• For wheeled rotary machines, mow across the face of slopes, never up and down.

 

• Exercise extreme caution when changing direction on slopes.

 

• Do not mow excessively steep slopes.

 

• Use extreme caution when reversing or pulling the mower towards you.

WARNING

• Stop the blade(s) if the mower has to be tilted for transportation when crossing surfaces other than grass and when

 

transporting the mower to and from the area to be mowed.

Never operate the mower with defective guards or shields, or without safety devices, for example deflectors and/or grass catchers in place.

Do not change the engine governor settings or overspeed the engine.

Disengage all blade and drive clutches before starting the engine.

Start the engine or switch on the mower carefully according to instructions and with feet well away from the blade(s).

Do not tilt when starting the engine or switching on the motor, unless the mower has to be tilted for starting. In this case, do not tilt it more than absolutely necessary and lift only the part which is away from the operator.

Do not start the engine when standing in front of the discharge chute.

Do not put hands or feet near or under rotating parts. Keep clear of the discharge opening at all times.

Never pick up or carry a mower while the engine is running.

Stop the engine and disconnect the spark plug lead:

-Before clearing blockages or unclogging the chute.

-Before checking, cleaning or working on the mower.

-After striking a foreign object. Inspect the mower for damage and make repairs before restarting and operating the mower.

-If the mower starts to vibrate abnormally check immediately.

Stop the engine:

-Whenever you leave the mower.

-Before refuelling.

Reduce the throttle setting during engine run-outand if the engine is provided with ashut-offvalve, turn off the fuel at the conclusion of mowing.

MAINTENANCE AND STORAGE

Keep all nuts, bolts, and screws tight to be sure the equipment is in safe working condition.

Never store the equipment with petrol in the tank inside a building where fumes may reach an open flame or spark.

Allow the engine to cool before storing in any enclosure.

To reduce the fire hazard, keep the engine, silencer, battery compartment and petrol storage area free of grass, leaves, or excessive grease.

Check the grass catcher frequently for wear or deterioration.

Replace worn or damaged parts for safety.

If the fuel tank has to be drained, do this outdoors.

SELF PROPELLED OPTION

Refer to the “Warning” and “Caution” notes at the beginning of the maintenance section.

WARNING

Adjusting the Drive Cable

If cable adjustment is necessary ensure that the drive disengages before starting the mower or it may drive off unattended. This can be checked by pulling the mower backwards (with the drive bale released) - the rear wheels should free wheel.

WARNING

Do not overtighten the cable assembly.

Should the transmission continue to slip after adjustment, have the mower serviced by an authorised Rover dealer.

MAINTENANCE (Continued)

Adjusting the Drive Cable (Continued)

Start the mower in the disengaged position.

Push the drive bale forward until the gap between the bale and the handle bar is 55mm (refer figure 12).

The drive should just begin to engage at this point.

If the drive is not beginning to engage, rotate the thumb wheel on the cable support block (one click at a time) in an anti clockwise direction until it does (refer figure 13).

If the drive engages and drives off at a gap greater than 55mm rotate the thumb wheel on the cable support block one click at a time in the clockwise direction until it does (refer figure 13).

Test the mower at all speeds ensuring that it self disengages when the drive bale is released and that the transmission does not slip at full speed with the drive bale fully engaged.

If you still experience problems, see your nearest authorised Rover dealer.

Ensure the cable is not damaged or kinked which may affect the drive.

Apply a drop of lubricant to the pivot points of the drive bale to ensure smooth and safe operation.

Removing the Drive Frame Cover

Unscrew the front and rear phillips head screw in that order (refer figure 14).

Lift the cover and rotate out of the mower to expose the upper transmission components.

Blow grass and dirt out of the recessed holes to expose the head of the fixings.
