The 190 cc engine allows you to mow at a decent clip and it starts more easily and runs more efficiently than most side-valve engines. Also the rear-wheel drive makes it so you can mow inclines and hills effortlessly. There are more features than we have space to cover here but we would be remiss if we didnt touch on the Versamow system. This system allows you to choose how much grass is mulched and how much is bagged depending on your yards conditions. It also lets you shred leaves so you no longer need to use your leaf blower.
Next you will change the oil. To lower oil viscosity and get it moving freely run the engine for a few minutes. Now shut the engine off and roll the mower onto a piece of cardboard or drop cloth. Close the fuel line (if your mower has one) and unhook the spark plug as before. Find the oil filler tube and remove its cap. Often the cap also functions as a dipstick.
Lawn mowers are tough. Like any machine though they need regular maintenance to run their best. Worse neglect can cause a mower to fail completely. So before the summer mowing season really kicks into high gear prep your mower right. From cleaning it to changing the oil to sharpening and balancing its blades this guide lays out steps to get your mower and your garden in tip-top shape.
