There are two dots on the dipstick that is your oil level I can't remember the qty of oil I think just over 1 litre I use nulon 10w30 with genuine oil filter mineral oil

Thanks Willy, I think 1.4L inc filter, going to fit a oil sump tap to it as bung is a very silly idea that results in oil in places I don’t want when removed.

I have to blow into the fuel tank (pressurize it for say 10 seconds) before starting, otherwise the mower dies from fuel starvation after about 2 minutes. Can anyone point to the problem?

When I start my mower it runs quiet until I release the foot brake then it runs noisy is this normal apart from that everything is perfect

When you release the brake, the mower most likely speeds up because you start to place a load on it. I suggest this must be the cause of the noise. Nothing to worry about - wear ear plugs or muffs if it worries you. Also a good idea to wear a mask and goggles, you don't want to inhale the dust or get it in your eyes. Roger

Thanks Roger is the noise from transmission

The transmission/diff has two modes, drive and push. You have to disengage drive mode to push the mower around by hand. I wonder if the transmission is in push mode instead of drive mode?

New to the mower, what do I have to do to mow in reverse Please?
No worries, I worked it out, makes a huge difference to be able to mow in reverse ;)

Key has two positions when running, green and yellow. Turn key to yellow position, then push the triangle button near the key, a small red light should come on and then you can mow in reverse.

willy
willy

Same as nick but first take off foot brake and red light should be on and your ready to go but not supposed to mow in reverse

Just wondering if any has an experience in the accelerator being delayed, starting mowing no problems and probably takes 5 to 10minutes to for a acceleration forwards and reverse to kick in to full power, does my cable needs adjusting?

1 answer
Roger Kinsky
Roger Kinsky

can't say I have experienced this type of problem but my mower is fairly new. Suggest you squirt silicon on the cable and jiggle the cord back and forth a few times. More likely the problem could be a blocked air filter or fuel filter, or dirt in the fuel tank. Clean the air filter and if this doesn't help suggest you empty the fuel tank completely and fill with clean fresh fuel. I always filter my fuel with a filter funnel before filling.
Let us know how you go.
regards
Roger

After mowing for 10 minutes it runs erratic then stalls I drain the fuel bowl once or twice then goes OK for 10 minutes is it a fuel problem or electrical thanks kevin

Sounds like a fuel problem to me. Suggest drain the tank make sure there is no water in it, chuck out the fuel you have and refill with new unleaded (non ethanol). Also check your air filter, make sure it isn't clogged and clean it anyhow.
Hope this helps
Roger

Also I always double filter my fuel before putting in the tank.

After checking my oil level I forgot to put lid back on resulting in the oil spilling out. Can't find manual how much oil do I need to put in to bring it up to level required.
Thanks Margaret

There will still be some oil still in the engine so it will be best to put a little in at a time and check the oil level on the dip stick each time. Continue until oil level is between low and high mark on dip stick.

Thankyou Nick. As the oil has sprayed up everywhere how long should I wait before refilling it. (I have wiped as much oil off that I can see.

Hello Neta
I have no idea where you can buy one around your area. Maybe Tenterfield.
Bunnings stocks them so where is your nearest Bunnings?
I had to pay a delivery charge. They were going to sell me one that was unassembled but I insisted they sell me the floor model which was assembled.
Good luck

No problems yet with mine. I always fill with a funnel fitted with a filter.
Also it is good idea to use standard petrol that doesn't contain any ethanol.
I believe ethanol fuel is no a good option for mowers and outboards.
You may be able to drain the fuel tank and refill with fresh petrol.

Mini Rider

I mowed over something inadvertently today and my mower stopped. I tilted it on to its side and removed the offending object. I put the mower back upright but now it won’t start. Is there a kill switch or something?

1 answer
Roger Kinsky
Roger Kinsky

Like all ride ons it has a kill switch if you get off.
You may have created a problem when you tipped to the side.
Best to check oil and petrol tanks and make sure the air filter isn't clogged.

Hi

There is a very small gap all the way around the deck. If there is no dint then the deck mustn’t be sitting central. There are guide pins in each corner, check they and the split pins are still in place.
