Which Gasoline To Pour Into An Al-Ko Lawnmower
On the Russian market it is almost impossible to find a Partner (Partner) chainsaw assembled in Italy or Sweden (the official country of manufacture). The entire range of gasoline saws is made in China. Despite this, they are considered one of the best assembled in China. Reviews of real owners also confirm this. Why are they considered the best, why buy them and why.
Key Features of a Gasoline Engine
First of all, you should decide which design will be most suitable: manual wheeled or self-propelled. The first is much cheaper, but moving it around the site will be more difficult. Self-propelled themselves move on the ground, a person can only ask her the right direction. Such models are perfect for areas with a large number of fruit trees, shrubs, for large lawns.
Be sure to take into account the level of noise pollution, it is especially important to take into account this factor if the work will be carried out near the houses of neighbors. Additional features and price also play an important role. The size of the blade is selected depending on how tightly and often the lawn grass grows to each other.
The cutting system is also very important. There are models with one type or combined. Lateral discharge will be most suitable for the lawn on which coarse and thick varieties of grass grow. Chopping and mulching are intended for frequent mowing, especially since the finely chopped grass will become an excellent fertilizer, and also keep the lawn in its original form when dry days stand.
Rotary engines in lawn mowers are most common. Mowing here occurs on the principle of a scythe, the function of which is performed by blades rotating at high speed. Such models are quite heavy, but very powerful. Such devices are best suited for large areas and for overgrown lawns. If necessary, the rotating blades can be removed and sharpened or completely replaced.
Cylindrical structures usually move on wheels, grass is cut like scissors. With these lawn mowers a very high quality mowing is ensured. Such models should be used regularly, as they do not cope well with overgrown lawns.
The best inexpensive self-propelled gasoline-powered lawn mowers: budget up to 25,000 rubles
Self-propelled lawn mowers are suitable for owners of smooth lawns without stones and sharp landscape drops. This is the most convenient type of lawn mower, because during operation there is no strong tension on the hands. All you need is to carefully control the device, and make sure that the stones do not fall under the knives.

4 Hammer KMT145SB
Consumer choiceCountry: Germany (manufactured in China)Average price: 18 999 rub.Rating (2018): 4.5
An effective gasoline mower, the advantage of which is the balance of the basic characteristics and the extreme popularity among domestic users. Hammer KMT145SB is based on the Chinese 145-m3 Loncin 4-stroke engine developing 3.5 hp. This turns out to be enough to provide a knife speed of up to 2900 rpm. An average in the class. The mowing geometry also does not go beyond the “middle”. The lawn mower is able to cover a strip with a width of 46 centimeters.
Among the benefits noted by consumers are three options for ejecting mowed grass: back, sideways, or into a soft grass catcher with a volume of 60 liters. The moves are smooth, there are seven levels of bevel height, and a slightly unusual return stroke (which you can get used to). In general, Hammer KMT145SB gives the impression of an excellent device, and, moreover, for a small fee.
Basic rules of operation
- Do not start the device indoors so as not to suffer from exhaust fumes;
- When mowing, do not press on the mower, but only point it (self-propelled units move even more easily than usual);
- Do not mow early in the morning, wait until the grass becomes drier;
- Clean the grass catcher in a timely manner so that its fullness does not affect the power of the mower;
- Carefully study the manual from the manufacturer, the manual contains all the necessary information on starting, operating and maintaining both the mower and the engine;
- Wear protective equipment (long trousers, heavy shoes, a plastic mask, earplugs or headphones).
Oil and fuel
As with other four-stroke mowers, Partner lawn mowers need to select high-quality lubricants and good gasoline. Types of fuel: AI-95 and AI-92 gasoline. Oil for four-stroke engines with air cooling.
Recommended viscosity type oil: SAE10W30, or recommended by the manufacturer in the instruction manual.
The first oil change is made after 5 hours after the first start of the unit. In the future, the oil is changed either as necessary, taking into account the load and occupancy of the mower, or every 50 hours of operation (every three months). Oil with water impurities has a whitish coating, superheated oil darkens very much. Both of them are not suitable for pouring into a lawn mower.
Use only high quality fuel and lubricants to extend the life of your mower.
3 Champion LM4630
Best of Side MowersCountry: USA (made in China)Average price: 20 090 rub.Rating (2018): 4.5
In most mowers, mowed grass either pours under your feet or settles in a tank that quickly clogs. The Champion LM4630 Lawn Mower uses a side discharge construction solution.

Advantages of Champion LM4630:

Of course, the new chainsaw should be properly configured, and then it will show its best side, and at 100%.
