Maintaining Your Mower Regardless of if you purchase a gas or electric mower you will always want to keep it well maintained. The most important thing you will need to do is keep the blades sharpened. Your lawn will look much nicer with a sharper blade. Dull blades will give your lawn a raggedy uneven look. Similar to a car low tire pressure can negatively affect the performance of riding lawn mower. Low tire pressure will cause the mower to use more gas or battery power while in use. However you do not want to over-inflate your tires either. Over-inflated tires could burst when running over something sharp such as glass or a sharp stone.
Engine features include the method of starting the engine the type of fuel and the type of engine. Lawn mower engines can be started with a recoil cord or an electric start. If you choose the electric start remember that the charge in the battery will require electricity to maintain it. Fuel choices include diesel or gas depending on the engine type. Your choice in the type of lawn mower engine is the two-cycle engine which requires a gas and oil mixture for fueling and the four-cycle which runs on straight gas. Research data indicates that the four-cycle engine is more efficient and requires less maintenance in the long run.
Finally you should keep an eye on the battery and cables. Eliminate any corrosion if it starts to build up by using a damp rag. Corrosion can build up due to acid leaks from the battery. Cautions and Dangers Since riding mowers are larger than manual mowers this makes them more dangerous to operate. In a study released by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission common dangerous problems include mowers tipping over riders falling off the seat and riders being run over by the mower. Therefore to fully protect yourself and your family you should take the following precautions: Always read the owners manual first.
If you enjoy the idea of having a beautiful lawn in front of your dwelling to gaze on to walk on occasionally and for the whole community to admire then you also probably realize that all lawns call for one thing - a lawn mower to keep all that grass looking tidy. But lawn mowers dont come in only one common size design or type. There are many lawn mowers for the many types of grass-trimming needs a lawn owner will have. You can choose lawn mowers called rotary mowers which rely on a circulating blade to trim and slash at the tall grass; the blade is shielded by a protective cover.
