Tipping some petrol mowers on their sides can permanently damage them.
At the very least make sure the air filter it at the top so that oil doesn't run into it.

Very good I'm sure but it's a rotary and I use a cylinder mower.

Please do a cylinder type!

Monty i don't think it was a good idea to tip the mower on its back! Perhaps the next time yould show the public how to clean the air filter etc rather than just talk about it, I could go on but I am sure you know best.
