The blade on your lawnmower may appear robust, but it is susceptible to damage, especially if it comes into contact with more than the grass you’re cutting. In fact, your lawnmower’s manual is likely to state that if you hit a foreign object with your lawnmower, such as a stone, you should immediately check the blade.
However, few of us do this despite a damaged lawnmower blade having a detrimental effect on the cut of your lawn. But, replacing the blade on a lawnmower isn’t a difficult task and by following the advice below you should be able to replace your lawnmower blade in little more than 5 minutes.
During the grass cutting season, which traditionally runs between March and October (weather dependent) your lawnmower is a vital garden appliance, and one which is called into action on almost a weekly basis.
As a result, it comes under a lot of stress which can result in faults developing. Key to minimising the risk of such faults is to provide your lawnmower with regular maintenance, and this includes draining the oil at certain points during the cutting season, as outlined below.
British Summer Time began yesterday. Whilst it meant that the past weekend was the shortest of the year, it also means that spring has well and truly sprung and gardening is firmly back on the agenda. Hopefully when you look out of your back door you now see not a murky and forbidding brown and off-green space, but a slightly unkempt patch brimming with possibility.
We’re getting towards last cut of the year kind of time, and after a hard summer of keeping the grass in check, does your lawn mower need a bit of love? Even if all seems well, it’s always worth giving it a quick MOT to make sure everything’s running smoothly.
