How to Properly Start a Husqvarna R120S

The following instructions are for the Husqvarna Rider, which is for the model number R120S. Before attempting to work on/with your equipment in any way, always refer to your owner’s manual for safety information.

  1. Make sure the release lever is pushed in (Run Position).
  2. Lift up the cutting unit by pulling the lever backwards to its locked position.
  3. Activate the parking brake. Press down the parking brake pedal, press in the lock button on the steering column, release the brake pedal while holding the button pressed.
  4. The parking brake lock disengages automatically when the brake pedal is pressed.
  5. With a Cold Engine:
  6. Move the throttle to position 3 (choke position). In this position the engine is fed with a richer mixture, which means the engine is easier to start.
  7. With a Warm Engine:
  8. Move the throttle in between positions 1 and 2.
  9. Turn the ignition key to the start position.
  10. Important Information: If the engine does not start, wait about 15 seconds before trying again. If the engine does not start wait about 1 minute before trying again.
  11. When the engine starts release the ignition key immediately back to neutral position.
  12. Push the throttle lever gradually rearward when the engine has started. Let the engine run at moderate speed or half throttle for 3-5 minutes before subjecting it to a heavy load.
  13. Set the required engine speed with the throttle control.

For information about safety, warranty, and your specific model, read and be familiar with your owner’s manual.
