In the run up to summer it’s time to take back control of your garden. Making sure your lawnmower is in optimum working condition is of paramount importance if you’d rather not shell out on a new model, here are some handy tips to keep your lawnmower in great working order so gardening this summer is a breeze.
Make sure your lawnmower is washed and cleaned every day to prevent debris build up and damage to blades. A power blower is a fantastic tool for cleaning the underside of your machine as well as other hard to reach areas. If you have an air-cooled engine try using a stick to remove debris from cooling fins, alternatively if you have a lawnmower with a water-cooled engine make sure the reservoir is sufficiently filled. If you won’t be using your lawnmower for a while it is a good idea to drain the fuel tank and replace the mower fuel filter.
Check all aspects of your lawnmower for general wear. Your spark plug should be removed and checked for corrosion, if it shows signs of damage it is recommended you replace it rather than attempt to fix it, it’s cheap and simple to procure a new one so cut out the unnecessary hassle. Clean and lubricate the throttle linkages and the choke and make sure to oil the lower deck and all of the fittings.
When your lower deck is removed for lubrication it is the perfect time to sharpen your blades, this will give you an improved cut when you need it, it’s a good idea to do this in the winter after mowing season to save you a job in the spring.
If you’re unsure of how to properly maintain your lawnmower or for trickier jobs it is recommended that you take your machine to a professional, that way you know the job is being done right and no job is being overlooked. If you’re in the Nottingham area and want to get your lawnmower in perfect condition or are looking to invest in a new modal now the weather’s getting warmer, talk to Mr Lawnmowers, our professional team will be more than happy to help with whatever maintenance job you require, call us today on 772 2038 or get in touch online.Posted in Latest News Tagged Mr Lawnmowers May 2, 2013

The snow has gone and the rain will be following; it’s that time of year where we’re all thinking about venturing down to the shed, dusting off our lawnmowers and praying they’re still working! A few people, the lucky few, will have hearty lawnmowers that survived the winter unscathed, but a lot of us won’t be so fortunate. Don’t despair! It can still be saved, here at Mr Lawnmowers we specialise in lawnmower repair and maintenance; here are just 3 ways we can help bring your lawnmower back to life:
If your blades have dulled over time they’ll no longer properly cut your lawn, instead they’ll rip the tops off of grass leaving it vulnerable to disease. We all want lush green grass in the summer and a well sharpened lawn mower is the best way to get it.
Ideally your air filters should be cleaned every 25 operating hours but these days those little tasks can slip away from us; clean air filters will improve performance and extend the life of your lawnmower so if all they need is a clean or you need a complete replacement we can help.
The carburettor is an important part of any gas engine; ever tried turning your lawnmower on and all you get is a splutter? It’s probably the carburettor. Engines are delicate and specialised pieces of machinery so it’s important to always consult a professional, for your lawnmowers safety and your own!
Here at Mr Lawnmowers we can service, repair and replace parts on your lawnmower quickly and affordably, keeping you and your garden happy. For more information contact us online and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have, we’ll get your lawn looking great for summer!Posted in Latest News March 6, 2013
The winter is slowly disappearing and making way for the brighter mornings and hazy evenings. With the long awaited news, many people may be eager to get out and start on the garden in preparation for the summer months and one area that is sure to have taken a bit of a beating the last few months is the lawn.
Fortunately, we at Mr Lawnmower are here to provide some tips on looking after your grass to ensure you have a garden that is ready for a summer worth of flowers and bbq’s.
The temperature is still dropping so the frost is still having an effect on the lawn at present so ensure your grass is not walked on at this time. Like footprints in sand, when the frost or snow have thawed you will have snapped off the tips of grass and will be left with the trails. Obviously this isn’t avoidable all together but remember your lawn is underneath so avoid high traffic passing over it when it‘s still in a delicate state.
Spring is the time to get potting and planting, if the winter months have taken their toll on your lawn, then investing in some grass seed may be worthwhile to ensure that your grass has time to seed and thicken for later in the year.
As the temperature does increase, so will the length of your grass. It doesn’t cease growing within the cooler months but as the weather improves this kicks starts the growing process and your lawn will be lengthy in no time at all. It’s at this time where you will need to look at using your lawnmower and reviewing whether this is still in a good state to use for the year ahead.
A good lawnmower is to a gardener like a pair of scissors is to a hairdresser; they need to be sharp to create a clean, neat cut. Review your lawnmower to ensure it will cut the grass effectively rather than churn it up and crate mulch under foot. The mower should be lifted a little high than normal just to tidy up the lawn on the first cut but as the weather gets better and the growth is consistent, normal mowing should apply.
