How To Use A Lawn Mower

Before starting work, you need to check all fasteners and, if necessary, tighten them all the way. Put on the backpack strap and tighten the adjusting tightenings.

Then place the scythe on a hard, flat surface and make sure that the cutter is not in contact with anything.

Then set the throttle grip to the “OFF” position and the switch on the grip to the “I” position.

Holding the braid in a stationary position with your left hand, you need to sharply pull the starter cord with your right hand.

The engine may not start the first time, in which case you should try again.

If you want to start the scythe immediately after stopping the engine, then you should not close the throttle before starting.

To start the mowing process, attach the lawn mower with a carabiner to the unloading belt and, holding the trigger, start mowing using a right-to-left scythe motion (when using the mowing head, left-to-right).

On the handle of the scythe, next to the switch, there is a button with which you can jam the trigger and operate the tool effortlessly.

In work, it is imperative to follow safety rules and dress in accordance with the requirements. Glasses are used to protect the eyes, you need to put on boots with non-slip soles, gloves should protect your hands, and you can use headphones from noise.

Choosing the right attachment

In addition to their product, the manufacturer usually provides several cutters (usually 3).

For working with soft grass, a line wound on a drum is used as a cutting element. The speed of 9000 rpm allows you to quickly work even a large lawn.

For coarser grass and thickets, you can use one of the metal knives, which differ in the number of cutting teeth.

A disc with 40 or 80 teeth is intended for mowing dense growth, reeds, young bushes. Corn, dry weeds with thick stems can be mowed with three- and four-blade cutters.

And in order to lay the cut grass in the rolls, a knife with 8 blades is used and a special comb is attached to the scythe itself.

And now more about how to install the cutter. The attachment point of the cutter is called the gearbox. First you need to fix the curly washer on it with a hex wrench.

Then put on the knife, aligning the holes in it with the protrusion of the washer. After that, you need to install the upper figured washer on the shaft and tighten everything with a nut.

Here you should pay attention to the fact that the thread on the shaft is left-handed, therefore, tighten the nut (as well as the mowing head) counterclockwise.

The key, which is also included in the delivery set, will help to tighten the nut until it stops. You can replace the cutter by doing all the operations in reverse order.
