Essential Lawn Mower Maintenance Tips for Landscapers

Essential Lawn Mower Maintenance Tips for Landscapers

Posted by Default Admin on 21 July 2023

As a professional landscaper, your lawn mower is essential. It plays an important role in keeping your clients' outdoor spaces looking their best. To ensure the longevity and peak performance of your equipment, regular maintenance is crucial. Here are some essential lawn mower maintenance tips to help keep your mower in top shape and deliver exceptional results to your clients.

LandscaperTips tmbClean the Mower After Each Use:
Cleaning your commercial mower after each use is essential for preventing the build-up of grass clippings and debris. Start by removing any visible debris from the cutting deck and underneath the mower. Use a brush or compressed air to clean hard-to-reach areas. Regular cleaning not only improves performance but also helps to extend the lifespan of your mower.

Sharpen and Balance the Blades:
Dull mower blades can tear grass instead of cleanly cutting it, leading to an uneven and unhealthy lawn appearance. Sharpening the blades regularly is vital for achieving a precise and professional-looking cut. Additionally, ensure that the blades are balanced properly to avoid unnecessary vibrations and potential damage to the mower deck. We recommend taking your blades into your local LandPro to be sharpened and balanced properly by one of our pro’s!

Check and Change the Oil:
Maintaining the appropriate oil level in your lawn mower is crucial for its smooth operation and longevity. Check the oil level before each use and change it according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Regular oil changes help to keep the engine lubricated, reduce friction, and prevent overheating. It's also important to regularly change the fuel filter.

Be sure to use the recommended oil type for your mower model and dispose of the used oil properly! If you're not sure which type of oil to use, your local Land Pro parts pro is happy to help!

Replace Air Filters and Spark Plugs:
Clean air filters and properly functioning spark plugs are essential for optimal engine performance. Check the air filter regularly and clean or replace it as needed. Clogged air filters restrict air intake, leading to reduced engine efficiency.

Don't forget to inspect the spark plugs and replace them if they show signs of wear or damage. Regularly replacing these components ensures reliable starting and efficient operation of your lawn mower.

Maintain the Fuel System:
Proper fuel management is vital for the performance and longevity of your mower. Use fresh fuel and avoid using gasoline that has been sitting for an extended period.

Before storing your zero-turn or riding equipment for a long period, you need to drain the fuel tank and run the engine until it is completely out of fuel. Regularly inspect the fuel lines for cracks or leaks and replace them if necessary.

Check and Adjust the Mower's Height:
Maintaining the correct cutting height is crucial for promoting healthy grass growth and preventing scalping. Regularly check and adjust the cutting height of your mower according to the specific grass type and the desired lawn appearance.

Proper maintenance of your lawn mower is essential for professional landscapers to deliver exceptional results consistently. A well-maintained lawn mower not only enhances your efficiency but also prolongs the lifespan of your equipment, saving you time and money in the long run. Invest in regular maintenance and provide your clients with pristine lawns that will make them proud!
