Safety & Operation

Practicing good safety with your lawn mower is much the same with any piece of equipment. Read the manual and familiarize your self with all of the safety procedures prior to starting the engine. Always check the lawn mower over prior to starting it at any time. Confirm that there is sufficient oil in the engine. Top up if needed. Check the fuel level as well and top up while the engine is cool to avoid any possibility of a flare up. If you spill fuel on the engine or the housing wait until it has full evaporated prior to starting the engine.

Never point the discharge at other people, buildings or cars. Projectiles from the side discharge can be at a high speed and cause accidents if you are not careful. Always shut the engine off before making any adjustments and prior to removing the grass catcher to empty it. This is an excellent habit to get into to avoid any possibility of an accident.

If you must clean out the underside of the deck, remove the key so that the Troy Bilt self-propelled lawn mower J863Q cannot be accidentally started.


Again, check the manual for all recommended maintenance requirements of the Troy Bilt self propelled lawn mower J863Q. After every use always clean off the deck to clear it of any grass , dirt and grime to avoid prematurely causing corrosion of the deck. Clean any clumps off the underside as well.
