What cutting deck height is recommended for the mulching function on this petrol mower?
The mulching system of this petrol lawnmower allows you to cut the grass into fine pieces, which remain on the lawn, restore nutrients and support growth. To use this function, the height of the chassis must be set so that the grass will be cut to a length that does not exceed a third of the total grass height of the lawn.
How should the oil level be measured on this petrol lawn mower?
To correctly measure the oil level, you need to make sure the petrol lawnmower is on a flat surface, unscrew the cap which has a built-in dipstick for measuring, clean off any oil on the dipstick and reinsert it without screwing it in. Take the dipstick back out and check the level, which must lie between the MIN and MAX values. Top up, if required, and screw the cap back on. Full details can be found in the engine manual.
Do I have to remove the bag to use the side discharge function on my petrol lawn mower?
