Your MTD walk-behind lawn mower lets you take good care of your lawn for your family's enjoyment and your pride of ownership. If you experience excessive vibration while mowing, try the following simple troubleshooting tips to solve the problem.
The constant vibration of a lawn mower can, over time, start to loosen the engine's mounting bolts. If you're experiencing more vibration than normal, check the mounting bolts for the appropriate amount of tension and tighten the bolts if necessary.
If your lawn mower blade has come loose or was installed incorrectly, it may be the cause of the excessive vibration you're experiencing. Blades that are chipped, bent or otherwise damaged can also cause vibration as well as keeping the mower from cutting the grass properly. Inspect your lawn mower blade, sharpen it if it's dull, and choose the right replacement from Sears PartsDirect's list of lawn mower parts if you see any signs of damage.
Keeping your walk-behind lawn mower well maintained goes a long way to preventing issues such as excessive vibration. Tune up your engine regularly by replacing the spark plug, air filter and oil, and give Sears PartsDirect a call if you need any other lawn mower repair help. Lawn mowers that are put in storage for many months of the year should be tuned up before returning to service.
