    I never have on any of the machines I've ever owned, including Lazer, and never will. Just no reason to.

    There should be a fuel shut off solinoid on the fuel bowl that is opperated by the key. There really is no need for a manuel valve.

    I agree with the above.

    Thats an anti backfire solenoid...not a fuel shutoff.

    Technically you should shut the fuel off whenever you transport the machine. Bouncing around on a trailer can cause the float to bounce and allow fuel to leak past the needle/seat...and leak or flood the engine.

    Does anyone actually do this? Not really. And it is more difficult for it to happen on a mower where the tanks are lower and there is a fuel pump. Generators/compressors are a different story.

    Cool thats good to know I had been told that was a valve that would keep it from flooding. I never turn off the one on my TT and haven't had a problem and it has the tank above the carb. What's the worst thing that could happen, hard to start?
