Walk-Behind Mower Safety

The smell of fresh cut grass and the look of a well-manicured lawn are part of the pride of ownership.  At MTD, we are committed to your well-being and safety when operating our equipment.  Our products are of the highest quality, provide various features depending on your lawn care needs and adhere to the highest safety standards. 

The walk-behind mower category includes reel mowers, push mowers, self-propelled mowers, electric mowers and battery powered mowers.  Reel mowers are the easiest mowers to operate since they are human-powered.  But reel mowers may not be a viable option for those with large yards.  For most consumers, a combustion engine-powered push mower or self-propelled mower is used for their lawn care needs.  It is important that you read the Operator's Manual that accompanies your product and understand the safety rules for the equipment you're using at the beginning of each season. 


Kids and Mowers Don't Mix


Keep Kids Safe.

Accidents can happen without warning, particularly if you don't see a child approaching the lawn mower.  Children should not be allowed in the yard or near the mower when it is in use.  Never allow children less than 14 years of age to operate a walk-behind mower.  Children 14 years of age and over should read and understand the instructions and safe operation practices found in your operator's manual and should be trained and supervised by an adult.
