Do not tip the battery enough for bat-
tery acid to run out onto your hands
and clothing. If this should happen,
flush with lots of water.
If the battery terminals are coated with oxide, they
should be cleaned. Clean the batteryterminals with
a wire brush and grease them.
LUBRICATION - CHASSIS
The machine has three grease nipples on the rear
axle, which should be lubricated with universal
grease after every 25 operating hours (fig. 17).
Lubricate the steering cables with universal grease
a couple of times per season.
Lubricate the plastic bearings with universal
grease a couple of times per season.
Lubricate the tension arms joints with engine oil a
couple of times per season.
Drop a little engine oil in both ends of the throttle
control cable a couple of times per season.
The transmission is filled with oil (SAE 80W-90)
on delivery from the factory. If it is not opened
(which must only be done by a specialist) it should
not normally need topping up with oil.
Adjust the steering cables for the first time after 2
– 3 hours of operation, and then after every 25
hours of operation.
Tension the steering cables by tightening up the
nuts (fig. 18). Important! The “screw ends” of the
steering cables should be held firmly during the
adjustment so that the cables are not twisted. Use
an adjustable wrench or the like, inserting it in the
key handles in the ends of the screws.
Tension the cables until they are no longer slack.
Do not tension the cables too hard. This can cause
unnecessary wear on the steering cables and pul-
