Cleaning your lawn mower on the job

I’ve got a new lawn master mower that I have been using for the last month or so.

It catches wet grass like a breeze but I do have problems with my munching. It packs itself so solid with grass that the mower dies in the middle of the lawn.

I don’t know if you have ever tried to pull start a mower that’s packed solid with grass. It is a complete waste of time. The chances are that you will not even manage to move the pull cord.

It’s time for a complete clean-out.

A job that I hate doing anytime and especially in the middle of a lawn.

I have a cleaning system where fold the handle and lift the mower from the front. I then proceeded to remove all the grass so I could continue working.

When I had workers I always had to explain to them that when you cleaned a mower.  You need to point the spark plug skyward. (after disconnecting it of course)

I see a lot of people out and about that have no idea about how to clean under a mower. You can always spot them because they roll the mower on its side.

This will have one of two possible outcomes.

  1. It will flood the engine with oil and drown you in a cloud of white smoke when you start the mower.
  2. It will flood the air filter and a wet air filter will prevent the mower from starting.

Neither of these things will kill your mower but I would not recommend either.

My Testarossa hardly ever got clogged up.

I miss that machine more every day.
