Lawn & Garden – Lawn Mower Tune-up (Deck)

Your lawn mower is one of the most important lawn and garden tools, so before you start mowing, get your lawn mower ready for the season with a lawn mower maintenance and give the lawn mower deck a good cleaning. Before cleaning the mower deck, disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug to make sure it does not start up while you are working on it. Read the instructions on the lawn mower owner’s manual for clear instructions on lawn mower maintenance. Being careful not to spill fuel, tip the lawn mower on its side and carefully remove the mower blade. Thoroughly clean the undercarriage of the lawn mower. Sharpen your lawn mower blade on your own or get a professional who knows how to sharpen lawn mower blades to do it. Before sharpening, wear thick work gloves and eye protection. Use a bevel file and begin sharpening the mower blade on the push stroke, never on the pull stroke. Or, you can use a rotary tool attachment to sharpen the blade. After sharpening the blade, make sure the blade is level and balanced. Spray the underside of the lawn mower deck with lubricant before reinstalling the mower blade. After you have set the lawn mower down properly, don’t forget to reattach the spark plug so it will start. If you have any questions about  lawn mower maintenance, just ask any of the friendly and helpful staff at Friedman’s Home Improvement.
