Are there any Advantages to Cordless Lawnmowers ?

When people talk about cordless lawnmowers, they usually mean the kind that are powered by a battery. These are called cordless electric lawnmowers, and they are usually powered by one to four 12 volt batteries that are usually rechargeable.

The amount of batteries usually dictates how long your lawnmower is capable of cutting grass before recharging. This is one thing to keep in mind when buying an electric cordless lawnmower. Electric cordless lawnmowers can be somewhat more expensive than their corded counteparts.

However, in the long run you might actually end up saving money as you won’t have to buy petrol or oil. For example, the Rotak 43 LI cordless lawnmower sells at around £350 and is capable of cutting with the same power as a corded lawnmower. This lawnmower also recharges quickly, thanks to its innovative lithium-ion battery.

A cordless electric lawnmower, like the Rotak 43 LI, is perfectly suitable for lawns between 300 and 600 square metres in size. The greatest benefits of corded electric lawnmowers are the lack of smell, much quieter sound and the fact that it doesn’t have a cord, which can be quite a hassle with conventional electric lawnmowers. The Bosch Rotak models have gathered numerous extremely positive feedbacks on sites such as Amazon, and it’s no wonder because these lawnmowers are so far ahead of their competitors’ choices. If, however, your lawn is bigger than 600 square metres, you should consider buying a corded electric lawnmower, such as the Bosch Rotak 40. This powerful lawnmower is an excellent choice for medium to large lawns.

Daniel Jones is an expert in internet marketing, and has a keen interest in environmentally friendly lawnmowers such as the Bosch Rotak 40.

Sharpening Mower Blades

Sharp blades give a sharp appearance to your lawn. By the same token, dull mower blades leave your lawn looking shaggy and poorly cared for.

How can you tell if your lawnmower is clipping your grass properly? Here’s a simple test; after you have finished mowing, bend down and pluck a few blades of the grass for a close-up examination. If your mower blade is sharp, the cut edge of the grass will appear evenly sheared as if it had been cut straight across with a pair of scissors; if the cut edge is uneven and jagged, the blade is not adequately sharpened and is actually tearing off the top of the grass blades rather than cutting them.

What are the negative effects of tearing rather than cutting the grass? Appearance and health; first of all, the top edges of the torn grass will quickly turn brown as the moisture dries from the damaged part of the grass blades. This damage will weaken the grass plants and make them more susceptible to disease. Imagine what the result would be if you used a stick to knock off the tender new growth of an azalea, boxwood, or other shrub in order to prune it back, shape it, or control its growth! This is what a dull lawnmower blade does to your millions of tiny tender grass plants.

Cutting the grass with a dull blade is also a drag to the lawnmower itself—literally. The engine of the mower is under a greater strain, working harder than it should have to in order to push the dull edge of the blade through the grass. This strain can shorten the life of the engine since it is not able to operate at maximum efficiency; it also increases gas consumption.

Since we know now that a well-sharpened lawnmower blade is important to the health of the grass and to the life of the machine, how do we go about achieving the desired sharpness? With knowledge and caution, of course! First of all, put on a good thick pair of work gloves before you begin your sharpening adventure; there are lots of opportunities for scraping, mashing, cutting, and otherwise damaging your fingers in the process of removing a blade from a lawnmower, sharpening the blade, and properly securing it back onto the mower. You’ll need a short block of wood (about a foot long piece of 1”X2” pine works well), to wedge between the end of the blade and the underside wall of the cutting deck to keep the blade from free-wheeling as you loosen the bolt that holds the blade on. It is much easier to use a ratchet and the proper size socket to loosen and re-tighten the bolt than it is to use an open end, box end, or adjustable wrench. For walk-behind mowers, whether they be the 21 inch cut single blade kind or the larger deck 3 blade variety, tilt the mower deck up by pushing the handlebar down to the ground and securing the front edge of the deck off the ground with concrete blocks. The smaller mowers can be turned up on their side briefly to gain access to the blade, if you do not work too slowly, causing the gasoline to spill from the top of the gas tank.

The preferred method of sharpening is with the use of a bench-mounted emery stone electric grinder. Hold the blade securely with both hands and move it slowly along the surface of the spinning stone, being careful to maintain the original angle of the cutting edge of the blade. If you do not have a bench grinder at home, I recommend taking the blade to a professional lawnmower shop and having them sharpen the blade for you. The expense of this procedure is small and the results are well worth it in order to have a properly sharpened blade. Sharpening devices are available that can be used with your portable drill, but the results obtained are usually not very acceptable, and you certainly can not do much useful sharpening with a file or other hand tools.

Take your lawnmower blades to a pro for sharpening or take your time and do a careful professional sharpening job yourself in order to have a healthy great-looking lawn!

How To Sharpen Lawn Mower Blades

Is your lawn mower tearing of the lawn grass blades instead of cutting it? Does your lawn look like it has been eaten by a goat, in spite of being cut by the lawn mower? Wait; do not pull your hair by the root. Help is at hand. We will teach you how to sharpen the lawn mower blades at minimum price and effort.
Your Manual Lawn Mower – The Faithful Walk Behinds
Tools: The tools that your will require for doing this job are
– You and your time of about 2 hours or less
– A bastard file of about 12″ long
– A small crow bar to prevent movement of rotor of lawn mower.
– A worktable will be useful for dong the job comfortably.
Procedure: You can use the following procedure as a general guide and make changes to it to suit you. Remember the procedure is not sacrosanct. The results are important, not the procedure.
1. If possible, remove the handle of lawn mower and place lawn mower on the table.
2. Secure it if possible in the clamps. If you do not have clamps, do not bother, secure it against any block, so that the movement away from you is restricted.
3. Fix the crowbar in the blades so that it will not rotate
4. With the help of the bastard file, file the edges of blades so that they look sharp. Work at an angle of 45 degrees
5. When one blade is sharpened, remove the crowbar and turn the rotor to work on another blade. Repeat the procedure until all blades are sharpened.
6. If you have a flexible shaft grinder in your DIY workshop, you will be able to complete the work within 5 to 10 minutes per blade. Make a template of blade profile before you start your work and compare frequently. This is necessary to ensure that you do not over cut at a place.
Safety Tip For You
While sharpening the blades ensure that the stroke is not too long otherwise, you may injure yourself.
Sharpening Blades Of Power Mower
Depending upon the lawn mower the procedure may vary. We have included general statements in this procedure; you would have to change the procedure slightly. Keep the maintenance manual of lawn mower handy if you have one.
Tools required.
– Siphon hose and clean container
– Heavy work gloves and goggles
– Double-cut (medium-rough) flat file
– Lumber scrap
– Socket wrench set
– Rubber mallet*
– Bench vise or C clamps
– Rotary blade sharpener accessory
– Electric drill*
– Screwdriver, or 1/4-in. rod or bolt*
– Blade balancer
– Replacement blade*
* Only if required
The list may look formidable, but tools are generally available with every DIY enthusiast.
Procedure:
The procedure is given for the simple single blade lawn mower, but the same will apply to all types of blades, whether single or double
– Wear hand gloves and clean the engine and the gasoline tank from outside
– Remove spark plug from the engine
– Remove all the fuel from the tank of the gasoline engine. Use the siphon hose so you do not spill gasoline on floor.
– Completely empty out the oil from gearbox if you have one
– Invert the engine and have access to the blade.
– Clamp the engine so it does not move and clean the blade area thoroughly
– With help of a box spanner, remove the nut holding the blade. Usually the nut will be unlocked in the reverse to direction of rotation of engine. You may engage the screwdriver in the cooling fan of engine to stop rotation of engine.
– If you find that you are using too much force to unlock the nut, put one or two drops of rust removing chemical, and try after 30 minutes
– After you remove the blade, clamp it in the bench vise and sharpen it with a file or a grinder. Sharpen only the outer 2 to 3 inches. The area to be sharpened will be known if you see the blade.
– Sharpen only to the required extent. Too much sharpening is not necessary. This is not the knife. It works at the speed of the engine
– After sharpening, check with your thumb. Be careful not to cut thumb. If you have done sharpening before, or seen some one doing it, you will know what we mean by this.
– Balance the blade with help of a small balancing tool on VEE blocks, or even on two foot rulers placed side by side
– Refit the blades, refill engine oil and gasoline and test the sharpness of blades on uncut portion of your lawn
Safety tips:
– Always use safety goggles and hand gloves when working with power tools.
– Be sure to remove the spark plug before starting. Serious accidents can happen if you do not do this.
