Lawn Mower Maintenance: Basic Tasks for Reliable Operation


Lawn Mower Maintenance: Basic Tasks for Reliable OperationTo keep your lawn mower working strongly, it's important to complete certain maintenance measures. But even if you take maintenance precautions, your mower may still develop problems that require professional assistance. At Highland Rent All, we provide lawn mower repair in the greater Albuquerque area. Here's a look at some basic lawn mower maintenance tasks.

Check/Change Oil

Mowers commonly require their oil to be changed at some point between 20 and 50 hours of use. Your owner's manual should provide your specific guideline on this. At minimum, the oil should be changed once per year.

Check/Change Air Filter

In lawn mowers, the air filter is regularly made of foam or paper, and is very simple to change out. It's good practice to replace your mower's air filter at the outset of each grass growing season. This will help to ensure that fuel burns correctly.

Sharpen Blade

A sharp blade helps to ensure that grass is cleanly cut rather than ripped apart. If you don't want to sharpen the blade yourself, you can get this done affordably at the shop.

Replace Spark Plug

Lawn mower spark plugs should be replaced at the start of the mowing season. This is a relatively simple task. You'll unhook the plug wire, then remove the old plug with a socket wrench. Then be careful that you don't over-tighten when installing the new plug.

Remove Debris from Undercarriage

As cut grass builds up on the underside of your mower, your discharge chute may fail to work right. You can clean out the undercarriage with a wire brush. Before starting this task, a good safety precaution is to disconnect the spark plug.

Empty Gas Tank at End of Season

When a mower won't start, old gas is often to blame. When you reach the end of the mowing season, you should empty the gas tank and then refill it with fresh gas at the start of the next season.
