The start of the season for your lawn mower. Our tips and tricks for maintenance
As soon as the days start to get longer again and the first rays of sun warm the ground in the garden, the lawn starts to sprout again. It is high time to get the lawn mower ready for the new season with professional maintenance. Whether your mower is electric or runs on petrol, the tasks are pretty much the same. In this manual you will find out what these are and what you should pay attention to.
If you follow these tips, you should not have any problems with your lawn mower this season and hardly any repairs or spare parts will be necessary. Of course you can also have the complete inspection of the device carried out by a specialist company. However, with a little skill, you can maintain, repair or replace most of it yourself.
Our tip: As a rule, the operating manual for your lawn mower contains helpful maintenance instructions that you can use as a guide. Usually you can also find instructions for repairs there.
Incidentally, it is usually not necessary to clean the lawn mower in the garden before the inspection in spring. Cleaning should already have been done during wintering in autumn – preferably with compressed air or a cloth with gentle soap, so you don't damage bearings and carburettor or electronics if present. Never use a pressure washer to clean your lawn mower!
Lawn mower maintenance is as important for battery-powered lawn mowers as for petrol and electric lawnmowers
