After sharpening both sides of the blade place it on the kits cone-shaped balancer. If one side dips below the other continue sharpening it until the blade rests level. Return the sharpened blades to the mower and reattach. If you have a torque wrench its a good idea to use it here. Often you need to tighten the blade mounting bolt/bolts to a specific tightness level. Typically measured in pound-feet your instruction manual should list these specs. For example my personal machine the Honda HRR216VKA between 36 to 43 lb-ft of torque is required.
Some lawn mowers such as the Craftsman 37705 have a washout feature. It is essentially a garden hose fitting on top of the circular blade cover. This allows you to pump water into the blade assembly while running the engine. That action is designed to flush dirt and grass debris right out.
Several buyers suggest coming up with a mowing pattern that moves away from the outlet and thus makes it harder for you to trip over the cord. One buyer found that the motor would get dirty during use and recommended opening it up and cleaning it with compressed air. When you first lay eyes on the Sun Joe MJ401E Mow Joe 14-inch 12 Amp Electric Lawn Mower you may be struck by how small it is. At 29 pounds it weighs almost half as much as the next lightest mower on our list. This makes it easy to maneuver but it does raise questions of durability.
