Will electric mower be safe going over a sewage manhole?

Hi, i feel like this is going to be a question people read and think is a really dumb question lol

I am not really into cutting grass much and always had it done by a gardener who used to use a petrol mower (and he did used to go over the manhole cover).

I decided recently i would try and save the cost and get a mower and just do it myself, pretty sure its the Bosch Rotak 36R.

I am just wondering with this electric mower if i would be taking a big chance going over the manhole cover, it is very slightly raised and didn't want to just assume that if the gardener used to do it with his it would be fine with my mower as i don't want to break it on it's first use.

    So long as the blades are set higher than the obstruction it will be fine. If you are in doubt run it over while it's NOT running and see if it hits or is close.
