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 control.

The Coordinates of Loss

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.

Some tips on how to care for your mower
  • After use, clean mower. Some mowers have a hole in the top of the base plate.(fig1) This is to clean the underside of the mower. Start mower, then place the nozzle of the hose in this hole. Start hose, the rotating blades will then flush out the underside of mower.
    Do not tip the mower on it's side, as this will clog the filter with oil. If you have no hole, tip the mower fom the front, with the mower resting on the handles.
  • Filters. If your mower is equipped with a paper filter,(fig2) use a small compressor to blow out the filter. Foam filters can be washed out in petrol and allowed to dry before replacing.
  • Lawn Mowing Regularity

    This depends on factors such as the type of lawn, the time of year, and lawn health.
    When choosing a frequency for your lawn, aim to match the frequency to the growth rate.
    Aiming to never remove more than 1/3 of the leaf material in a single mowing, this is the optimum result to seek so that lawns respond best to this lawn care practice. Another consideration when deciding on lawn mowing frequencies is the ongoing usability and tidiness of the lawns we live with, and enjoy.
    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.

    Mulching mowers.

    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.

    Mower fuel

    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.

    Cylinder Lawn Mowers

    Cylinder lawn mowers are often called Reel Lawnmowers, named after the multi blade cutting reel, or Roller Lawnmowers, named after the rollers at the front and rear of the machine. The cylinder lawnmower operates with a spinning reel of six to twelve blades which are welded into a single reel configuration, the spinning reel spins across the top of the grass trapping the leaves between it and the stationary bottom blade - which is also called a sheer blade. The effect is exactly like that of a pair of scissors whose blades swish past each other to perform the clean cutting action, like that seen on a bowling green. Both reel blades and bottom blades need to be kept sharp to ensure the maximum quality of cut.
