What are the advantages of maintaining my lawn mower?
Regular maintenance is important for the safety and performance of your lawn equipment. Additionally, your lawn will benefit. Many lawn problems result from dull or poorly balanced mower blades that can shred grass, leaving it susceptible to fungus, disease and infestation. Regular maintenance can help keep your lawn healthy by keeping your mower blades sharp and in balance. Both ensure a clean, even cut.
How often should my mower be serviced?
Please refer to your owner’s manual for the recommended service intervals.
