Your Troybilt walk-behind lawn mower provides you with an inexpensive and simple way of keeping your lawn looking neat and tidy. If you should find that the lawn mower isn't cutting the grass well, there are some simple troubleshooting steps you can take to get it back into tip-top condition.
Your mower has adjustable wheels so that you can control the height of the grass in your lawn. Check to see if the wheels are adjusted too high to be able to cut the grass, and make necessary adjustments. If the wheels are too low, you may find yourself scalping the lawn each time you mow. If the wheels are uneven, you're likely to see uneven mowing as a result.
If the blade of your walk-behind lawn mower has grown dull with use, it's likely to shred the grass rather than cutting it neatly and evenly. Sharpen the blade if necessary. If the blade isn't installed correctly, re-install it. Blades that are broken, chipped or bent need to be replaced. You can find the proper blade for your lawn mower among the lawn mower parts available at Sears PartsDirect.
As you check over your mower's wheels and blade, take a few minutes to perform regular routine maintenance on it. Your walk-behind lawn mower needs tune-ups, especially if you live in an area where you put the mower in storage for months at a time. Give your mower some maintenance by changing the spark plug, air filter and oil, and seek lawn mower repair help for any troubleshooting you are unsure of performing alone.
