  How to maintain a portable lawn mower?

Maintenance of your portable lawn mower is key to ensuring its long-term stable operation. Here are some common maintenance steps:

Regular cleaning:

Clean grass clippings, leaves, and other debris from your lawnmower after each use.

Clean the air filter regularly to prevent dust and impurities from clogging it and affecting engine performance.

Clean the fuel tank and fuel pipe to prevent the fuel system from being contaminated by impurities.

Check the blade:

Regularly check whether the blade is sharp. If the blade becomes dull, it should be sharpened or replaced in time.

After the blade hits a hard object, check it for deformation or damage and replace it if necessary.

When reinstalling the blade, make sure it is installed correctly and securely.

Change oil and filter:

Change your engine oil and oil filter regularly according to the manufacturer’s recommendations to maintain good engine performance.

Check the engine:

Check the running condition of the engine. If there is any abnormal sound or vibration, check and repair it in time.

Check the condition of the spark plug regularly. If there is carbon deposits or damage, clean or replace it in time.

Check wires and cables:

Check wires and cables for damage or deterioration and replace if necessary.

Make sure all electrical connections are secure and not loose or short-circuited.

Lubricating parts:

Lubricate your lawn mower’s bearings, gears, and other parts that need lubrication regularly to reduce wear and friction.


If the lawn mower will not be used for a long time, it should be stored in a dry, ventilated place away from direct sunlight and moisture.

Before storing, the oil and dust on the lawn mower should be cleaned and anti-rust oil should be applied to prevent rust.

Regular inspection and maintenance:

In addition to the above daily maintenance, the lawn mower should also be comprehensively inspected and maintained regularly, including checking the operation of the engine, transmission system, brake system, tires and other components.

If any faults or problems are found, professional maintenance personnel should be contacted in time for inspection and repair.

Please note that the above maintenance steps are for reference only and specific maintenance methods may vary depending on the make and model of your lawn mower. Always refer to the manufacturer’s user manual and maintenance guide before performing any maintenance operations.
