When the engine is operated in a closed area, pipe the exhaust gases outside. The exhaust gases contain
carbon monoxide which is colorless, odorless, and deadly poison.
Do not smoke or permit an open flame within 50 feet of the equipment when handling or storing fuel.
Stop the engine when performing any work around the flywheel or drive shaft.
Do not touch the exhaust manifold, muffler, or exhaust line during operation of the engine or before they have
cooled. A severe burn could result.
Do not operate the engine while filling the fuel tank.
Provide a metallic contact between the filling device and the fuel tank, to prevent a static spark which would
ignite the fuel vapors.
Depress emergency magneto ground button before working on engine.
Keep the operator's platform free of obstructions.
When welding a fuel tank make sure that the tank has been properly steam cleaned or is filled with water.
