   As mentioned earlier, lawnmowers can throw things both far and fast. It's very important to check the area you'll be mowing and remove any objects that may be pulled into the mower and hurled out or jam the machine - this includes doormats, sticks, toys, newspapers and other objects that may be hiding in the tall grass.

   Be mindful of rocks and gravel, especially at the edges of driveways and walkways. Rocks can easily break home or auto windows, damage house siding, or seriously injure a person or pet.

   Know where you're pointing the discharge chute of the mower while cutting. Be sure to direct the discharge away from people, animals, or property as lawnmowers can hurl things a great distance and at speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour! Many injuries each year are people being struck by flying objects thrown from lawnmowers. Never tip a mower on its side with the blade turning, either.

   Always be aware of pedestrians, children and pets that are in the area when you are mowing your lawn.
