Safety Checklist

Use  a safety checklist to help with safety on the mower:

  1. Make sure all protective guards are in place. Never remove guards.
  2. Determine that steering is responsive prior to beginning a job.
  3. Test the brakes.
  4. Clean the steps and operating platform to prevent slipping.
  5. Ensure that tires are properly inflated.
  6. Check mower hardware for correct tightness of bolts.
  7. Ensure a Slow Moving Vehicle (SMV) sign is installed and visible.
  8. Ensure flashing warning lights are present and operating when traveling on roadways.

Once installed, never remove guards, lights, or signs. Ignoring these simple items can cause accidents.
