The battery disconnect switch (1) is located on the right rear side of the machine.
|Disconnect Switch ON - To activate the electrical system, insert the battery disconnect switch key and turn the key clockwise. The battery disconnect switch must be in the ON position before you start the engine.|
|Disconnect Switch OFF - To deactivate the electrical system, turn the battery disconnect switch key counterclockwise to the OFF position.|
The battery disconnect switch and the engine start switch perform different functions. The entire electrical system is disabled when you turn off the battery disconnect switch. The battery remains connected to the electrical system when you turn off the engine start switch key.
Turn the battery disconnect switch to the OFF position and remove the key when you service the electrical system or any other machine components.
Turn the battery disconnect switch to the OFF position and remove the disconnect switch key if you do not operate the machine for an extended period of a month or more. This will prevent the drainage of the battery.
Never move the battery disconnect switch to the OFF position while the engine is operating. Serious damage to the electrical system could result.
