Kids and power equipment do not mix. Do not allow children to operate any outdoor mowing or handheld equipment.
Remember, children like to imitate their parents. That's why it's so important to always practice safe mowing skills. For your own safety's sake, as well as the good example you set, make sure safety starts in your own backyard first.
Children and pets should be kept in the house under supervision at all times while all mowing, trimming and blowing equipment is in operation.
Do not carry children or let them ride on the machine, or any attachment, or in a cart or trailer, even when the blades are turned off.
Remove any objects or debris that might be thrown by mower or edger blades. Keep people away from the mowing and trimming area to protect bystanders from thrown objects.
