About your lawnmower
A lawn mower (also named as mower or lawnmower) is a machine utilizing one or more revolving blades to cut a grass surface to an even height.
The height of the cut grass may be fixed by the design of the mower, but generally is adjustable by you, typically by a single master lever,
or by a lever or nut and bolt on each of the machine's wheels.
The blades may be powered by muscle, with wheels mechanically connected to the cutting blades so that
when the mower is pushed forward, the blades spin, or the machine may have a battery-powered or plug-in electric motor.
The most common power source for lawn mowers is a small (typically one cylinder) internal combustion engine.
Smaller mowers often lack any form of propulsion, requiring your power to move over a surface; "walk-behind" mowers are self-propelled, requiring you
to walk behind and guide them.
Larger lawn mowers are usually either self-propelled "walk-behind" types, or more often, are "ride-on" mowers, equipped so the operator can ride on the mower
and control it. A robotic lawn mower ("lawn-mowing bot", "mowbot", etc.) is designed to operate either entirely on its own, or less commonly by an operator by remote
After you have purchased your new mower, you will want it to run well for many years.A mower is something that you need not replace every few years.
Answers to questions a new user might have..
A bit of history..............The First Mowers. The lawn mower was invented in 1830 by Edwin Beard Budding, an engineer from Stroud, Gloucestershire, England.
He obtained the idea after seeing a machine in a local cloth mill which used a cutting cylinder (or bladed reel) mounted on a bench to
trim cloth to make a smooth finish after weaving.
Difference between two stroke and four stroke mowers.
Two-stroke engines require users to mix oil with the petrol.
The oil in the petrol is what lubricates the internal moving parts.
The internal parts of four-stroke engines are lubricated by oil drawn from a reservoir in the crankcase.
Petrol goes into the fuel tank and stays separate from the oil.
In the case of mulching lawn mowers, the mulch consists of grass clippings from the mowed turfgrass.
The clippings are cut into fine pieces that fall easily to the soil surface.
There, they can be rapidly broken down by soil microorganisms, which release nutrients from the mulched plant material back into the soil.
Most four-stroke engines require fresh unleaded petrol with an octane rating of 87 or higher.
You can use petrol with ethanol, but more than 10 percent ethanol is typically not recommended.
Mowers with two-stroke engines use that same type of fuel, but with the addition of a high-quality two-cycle engine oil.
Where are they made
Virtually all Victa mowers are assembled at Victa's factory in Moorebank NSW, from components sourced mostly from local businesses.
The 2-stroke Victa engines are made in Australia, while the 4-stroke Briggs & Stratton and Honda engines are manufactured at their various international facilities.
