When it comes to our 50-yard challenge, prioritizing safety is of utmost importance.

We kindly request that you allocate a few minutes to watch our comprehensive safety video before your child officially embarks on the 50-yard challenge. In addition, we have provided a list of essential safety tips below that should be diligently followed.

More Safety Tips

  1. Always ensure that your child wears appropriate attire, including durable footwear, along with eye and hearing protection.
  2. Allow the mower to cool down before refueling, cleaning, or storing it.
  3. Maintain a safe distance from any discharge opening to prevent potential accidents.
  4. Refrain from mowing on wet grass to minimize the risk of slipping or other hazards.
  5. Prior to mowing, clear the yard of objects such as stones, garden tools, or any debris that may be ejected by the mower and cause injury. Be mindful of items like wires or ropes that could entangle in the blades, as attempting to release stuck blades can lead to hand injuries.
  6. Always fill the gas tank before starting the mowing activity, avoiding refueling while the engine is running or hot.
  7. Adjust the cutting height before starting the engine, never when the blade is in motion.
  8. When mowing on slopes, it is advisable to mow across the slopes rather than going uphill or downhill to minimize the risk of accidents.
  9. Practice caution during turns and opt for slow and wide turns to reduce the likelihood of tipping over.
  10. Dressing appropriately is essential for ensuring safety while mowing. Always make sure to wear suitable footwear and never mow barefoot or in open-toed shoes such as sandals or crocs. Additionally, long pants are recommended to protect your legs. Don’t forget to wear hearing protection to minimize prolonged exposure to the loud engine noise and eye protection to safeguard against potential flying debris.

11. Keep bystanders at a safe distance from running mowers. Spectators can be struck by flying debris or the mower itself, as there are often blind spots while operating the machine.

12. When mowing slopes, follow parallel lines to prevent the risk of slipping beneath the mower. It is easier and safer to push a walk-behind mower across the slope instead of going directly up or down.

13.If you have recently refueled the gas tank, allow a few minutes for any fumes to evaporate before starting the mower or handling the spark plug.

14.Exercise caution and avoid placing your hands or feet near any moving components of the machine.

15.For gasoline-powered models, add fuel to the tank outdoors before starting the machine. Never add gasoline to a running or heated engine, and avoid operating the mower in enclosed areas.

16.Ensure that you are appropriately dressed, including durable footwear, as well as eye and hearing protection.

17.Before mowing, remove stones, toys, and other debris from the lawn to prevent injury or damage caused by airborne objects.

18.Confirm that the grass catcher, discharge chute, and other safety devices are properly installed and functional before operating the mower.

19.Exercise caution when mowing slopes or using the mower in wet conditions. Mowing in reverse should only be done when absolutely necessary, and always check thoroughly for the presence of others behind you before proceeding.

20.Before leaving the mower unattended, removing the grass catcher, picking up debris, or crossing gravel roads or paths, turn off the mower and wait until the blade(s) have come to a complete stop.-
