When Is The Best Time To Buy A Lawn Mower
If you do not know how to mow a lawn, there is no need to be discouraged: it is never too late to learn. Lawn mowing does not take a lot of strength or expertise, and it is nice knowing you do not have to rely on someone else to do the job for you. You just need a good mower , some patience and a basic understanding of best practices. I have one of the older DR battery mowers my brother had, but it has worn out, maybe a loose wire however the battery is not up to par anymore. I bought this Neuton for a replacement, seems tight, but the battery holds it’s own so I am assuming it is natural. It is light and easy to maneuver for an elderly person trimming and would probably be substantial for a whole small lot or lawn.
The manual for your lawn mower engine should give the weight and type of oil recommended as well as how often you should change it. If you don’t have a manual you can often find them online at the website for the lawn mower or engine manufacturer. Since many mowers use Briggs & Stratton engines, here’s a link to the Briggs & Stratton Manual Download page. You’ll need the model number and engine type to look up your manual. I change the oil in my (Briggs & Stratton engine) lawn mower once a year using a 30 weight high detergent oil. You don’t have to use it, but Briggs & Stratton sells oil for small engines which is available at many home centers and discount stores like Wal-Mart. Read full post at Medium.
I am so pleased with this product. It is so light and easy to use. The charge lasts for my entire lawn. Last week I mowed my lawn and part of my next door neighbors before I ran out of power. In the past I have dreaded mowing and waited till I had no choice I can not say it is a joy to mow but I can say it is simple fast and with the mulcher doing its job my lawn is always looking great.
The Honda ranks very highly in tests by Popular Mechanics and currently has the number-two spot in an epic Consumer Reports rundown (the number-one mower is a nearly identical Honda that costs more and has features we feel aren’t necessary). It has a large 190 cc engine, rear-wheel drive to help traverse tall grass or hills, and a two-blade cutting system that leaves, as Berendsohn put it, a velvet finish.” It also comes with a nearly indestructible (and fully warrantied) composite mowing dome. It can bag, side-discharge, or mulch whatever it’s cutting. If anything does go wrong with the machine, it has an industry-leading five-year warranty that’s nearly twice as long as what you get with most other mowers.
A washout port is another nice feature—this is a small hose connection on top of the mowing dome. After every few mowings, you connect a garden hose and run both the hose and the mower for a couple minutes. This sprays water into the spinning blades and removes all the grass clumps and debris from the underside of the machine. As this article on mower maintenance says, grass buildup in the cutting dome messes with airflow and makes the mower less efficient.
