In this post we show you how to keep your lawnmower in top condition. We reveal a few simple maintenance tips for improving the performance and expanding the lifespan of your lawnmower. Keep reading to discover how to change a lawnmower blade as well as the secret to staying safe outdoors.
1. Use Sharp Blades For An Even Cut
Regularly changing your lawnmower blades is an essential part of lawnmower maintenance. Over time lawnmower blades can become dull and the quality of cut diminishes. Blades can also become bent or damaged if you strike an object during use. Fortunately, replacing a faulty lawnmower blade is easy, as we explain in this video.
2. Protect Against Electric Shocks
Don’t take chances when working outdoors with electrical equipment. Power breakers like RCD mains adaptors reduce the risk of electrocution. They are recommended for use with lawnmowers just in case you accidentally run over the cable and can be used with all electrical appliances like trimmers, shredders and power tools.
3. Keep Your Mower In Top Condition
Cleaning and maintaining your lawnmower correctly can extend the lifespan and keep it delivering the best possible cutting performance. After every use, unplug the mower from the power supply and carefully clear away any cutting debris from the housing and air vents. Also clear waste off the lawnmower blades and check to see if they need replacing.
4. Extend Your Reach
If you’ve got a long garden it can be a struggle to reach all areas of the lawn easily for an effective cut. Fortunately, there is a very simple solution if you have a Flymo lawnmower. Using a lawnmower extension cable enable you to lengthen the power cable on your mower, so you can extend the reach without the need for a separate extension lead.
5. Replace Any Broken or Missing Parts
Over time your lawnmower can start to show signs of wear and tear, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to replace it. If parts of your lawnmower have become damaged, broken or lost they are likely to be easily replaced. We stock a huge range of lawnmower spares, including everything from blade bolts and pivot pins to replacement handles and cables.
