Thank you volunteers. Please take your turn near the date shown below. Note: During the peak growing season (May and June) the schedule shows the cutting to be done every five days.
In order to keep the cost of fuel down the pits should only be cut every other turn.
If you are unfamiliar with the operation of the mower then ask someone to show you.
Fuel supply (4 star unleaded). Fuel is stored in the steel locker at the right hand side of the storage compartment in the hangar. It is recommended to refuel the mower before starting mowing rather than on completion when the engine is hot and spilt fuel may ignite.
THE LOWEST BLADE SETTING IS FOR USE IN THE CIRCLE AND TAXI-WAY ONLY. Use a higher setting over long grass. A broken belt costs approximately £30 to buy and then someone has to fit it.
It is found that when wet grass is mown the cuttings accumulate under the mower, dry out and fall off in large lumps heavy enough to stop the blades. Be aware.
When you have completed your turn write the date on the notice in the Hangar so that the next “mower” can decide the best time to take their turn.
Can you please remember to mow the helicopter practice/control line area on every other turn, many thanks.
Please note –
If you cannot meet the date then arrange for another member to take your turn. If unsuccessful then please contact Paul Morris who may be able to help.
