and filters for your mower on hand. Step 3. Replace the spark plug at least once a year. Spark plugs often need replacing due to stale
fuel. Leave the spark plug cable detached to prevent
an accidental startup while you work. Step 4. Wear work gloves and clean under the cutting
deck with a stiff cleaning brush and a putty knife to remove debris. Step 5. Sharpen the blade on a bench grinder or with
an electric hand tool and a sharpening attachment every year. Grind or file the blade as evenly as possible
to prevent an imbalance and stress on the drive shaft and follow the manufacturer’s
bevel. Step 6. Replace the air and fuel filters to improve
engine efficiency and check belts for cracks or wear. Step 7. Change the mower’s oil and apply spray lubricant
to moving parts before reconnecting the spark plug cable and starting the engine. Did you know The U.S. Lawn Mower Race Association

    I have a small lawn and this works perfectly.>>>   Much easier to start, quieter, and less smelly than a gas-powered lawn mower. It is smaller and not a powerful as a gas mower, but for what I need, it is perfect. I got the heavy-duty cord as others have said, and had no problems at all
