Lawn Mower Terms

If you have a lawn mower, then you know they can be expensive to replace. Instead of buying a new mower, it is likely a better idea to get your lawn mower sharpened or repaired. If it is your first time dealing with mower sharpening and repairing services, there are some key terms that you should become familiar with. Caring for your lawn supplies regularly can save you a lot of money and hassle in the long run.

  • Carburetor - A part of an engine used to atomize fuel. Both ride on mowers and push electric mowers can have carburetors.
  • Prune - To trim or cut a tree or bush to maintain its shape.
  • Ignition - Part of the mower that turns the mower on. Some mowers have manual pull string instead of an ignition switch.
  • Edger - A small blade trimmer used to get rid of weeds or parts of grass that ride up against a sidewalk or patio. This is used to get into areas too small for a lawn mower to access.
  • Belt - Connects a lawn mower's engine to a pulley.
  • Hedge Clipper - Tool used to trim hedges to maintain a clean outdoor look of a yard. These shapes can range from square to animal shaped which are often called a topiary.
  • Deck - Protective shield that keeps the user safe from the blades. A broken deck should be fixed before using your machine for safety reasons.
  • Sprayer - An attachment that can be mounted behind a ride on seat to water grass. This device may also be used for fertilizing purposes.
  • Mini Rake - A small piece of hand held equipment that is used to work in a garden.

    Lawn mowers can be divided into two groups: hand and powered. Hand mowers, needless to say, have been around longer, predating both gasoline and electric powered varieties. Also, mowers come in cylinder and rotary designs. Hand powered mowers are still used, especially on smaller lawns. They have the advantage of being quieter and more ecologically friendly. Most mowers sold today, however, are powered. All mowers need their blades sharpened every four to six weeks. Some gardeners do it themselves, others rely on a sharpening service. Services may also sharpen other outdoor tools such as pruners and tree and bush trimmers. Many edge trimmers and some rotary motors use a string instead of a blade. Additionally, there is maintenance of motors and related equipment. For example, many mowers have a belt drive, which can weaken or break. Gasoline or diesel motors require the same maintenance as other small engines. They have carburetors, which need to be cleaned and maintained, for example. Some, especially ride on ones, have push button ignition. Hand propelled power motors commonly have a string pull starter. Most lawn mower engines have two stroke carburetors, with two pistons. Cleaning can be done easily at home. Special attention needs to be payed to the deck, which protects the driver and engine. Lawn mower parts such as replacement blades are also sold. Mowers vary greatly in size. Small yards may only require a hand mower or a small electric mower. Large ones often have tractor-style ride-on mowers, some of which are specifically designed to deal with tough weeds. Stores may provide repairs and parts for only some of these. Some specialize in repairing and fixing all kinds of small engines. Seats may also need to be replaced or upholstered. Many large mowers can also take attachments such as sprayers and aerators.
