How do I properly operate my Hover Mower?

  • In order to prevent electric shock, do not operate the hover blade grass cutter in damp or wet conditions.
  • Do not mow in a circle. Travel back and forth across the lawn following the path outlined below.
  • When cutting thick grass, reduce your walking speed in order to allow for a more effective cut and a proper discharge of the clippings. For a healthy lawn, always cut off one-third or less from the total length of the grass. The average lawn should be approximately 1.5 to 2 in. (3.8 cm to 5 cm) long during cool months, and more than 2 in. (5 cm) long during hot months. If there is growth, the lawn should be cut in the fall.
  • While cutting, make sure that the electric cable is always behind you and resting on the area of grass already cut.
  • The lawn will look better if it is always cut to the same height and in alternate directions.
  • When crossing any graveled area, release the switch bar lever to turn off the hover grass cutter. The stones can be picked up and thrown by the rotating blades.
  • Set the hover grass cutter to the higher cutting height when cutting on uneven ground or in tall weeds.
