The Operator's Manual is an important part of your new outdoor power
equipment. It will help you assemble, prepare and maintain your machine.
Your outdoor power equipment was built to be operated according to the rules
and instructions for safe operation which are contained in the operator's
manual and on the machine itself.
Safety rules and instructions, if not followed, could endanger the
personal safety and/or property of the operator and others. Read and
follow all instructions in the manual before attempting to operate your
outdoor power equipment. As with any type of power equipment, carelessness
or error on the part of the operator can result in serious injury. Your
machine is capable of amputating hands and feet and throwing objects.
Failure to observe the safety rules and instructions could result in serious
injury or death.
