Routine Lawn Mower Servicing
 

Every Month or 12 Hours Running Operation

  • Remove the lawn mowers spark plug and clean the electrodes with a wire brush. Reset the plug gap to the size recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Check the condition of all electrical wires / leads on the lawn mower.
  • Blades - check the cutting edges, file down small nicks only. If large nicks are present, remove the cutter blade and check the balance of the blade.
  • Check the security of all nuts, bolts, and fasteners on the machine.
  • On cylinder lawnmowers - check the setting of the cylinder blade with the fixed bottom blade, ensure it has the correct cutting action.
  • Lubricate all moving parts of the height adjusters and mower controls.
  • Thoroughly clean the lawn mower with a stiff brush to remove any grass or soil build-up. Jet pressure wash if needed taking care on electrical parts.
  • Check the fuel and oil levels.

Every Two Months or 25 Hours Running Operation

In addition to the above items:

  • Clean the air filter, replace the filter if needed.
  • If contact breakers fitted - clean and reset the contact breaker gap.
  • Drain and refill the lawn mowers engine oil.
  • If fitted - clean the fuel filter.
  • Check the idling, speed up response and adjust the lawnmowers carburettor if needed.

  • Adjust the chains or belts on cylinder mowers and self propelled mowers.
  • Lubricate all moving parts, including cutting height adjustment controls.
  • Check the blade (cylinder mower) is not bent.
  • Check the condition and sharpness of the blade. If necessary have the blade ground at a specialist lawnmower repair service centre or replace.

  • Inspect any drive belts for wear or cracking (replace if needed).

End Of Season or Every 12 Months Operation

In addition to all above items:
