Your Homelite walk-behind lawn mower helps you keep your lawn and garden looking great, making you proud of your well-maintained property. When you find that your lawn mower isn't cutting grass properly, a few simple tweaks or repairs can typically get your machine back to full efficiency. Here are some troubleshooting tips for keeping your walk-behind lawn mower properly maintained and working well.
Setting the wheel height for a walk-behind lawn mower is a crucial step to getting it to cut the grass accurately. If the wheel height is too high, the mower's blade isn't going to reach the grass to cut it, and if it's too low, you could end up stripping the lawn entirely. Make sure all four wheels are at the same height for an even mow.
Regular tune-ups of your walk-behind lawn mower improve the machine's efficiency and keep it working properly. The lawn mower parts you need to replace in a tune-up are the air filter, spark plug and oil. You also may want to sharpen the lawn mower blade or even replace it.
A dull lawn mower blade results in a badly cut lawn. If the blade is dull, you can sharpen it to improve your lawn mower's performance, but if it becomes bent or chipped or is otherwise damaged, you need to replace it.
