There is something Zen about spending an hour or two each week pushing the mower around the yard on a sunny day. The drone of the motor drowns out your thoughts as you work on a task with a clearly defined objective: Making your lawn look its best. Of course the deciding factor between an almost meditative experience and one filled with frustration is often the quality of the lawn mower you have.

To sharpen them secure in a table vise. Now attach the blade sharpener to the end of your power drill. Make sure to wear eye protection and work gloves. Carefully use the sharpener to hone the cutting edges of your blades. Go slowly at first to get the feel of the best angle for meeting the blade and sharpener.

With the mower still on its side grab your socket wrench and wood block. Place the block inside the blade well. This is to prevent the blades from turning while you loosen their bolts. Remove the blade mounting bolt/bolts. A typical mower will have one blade like the Craftsman 37700 I serviced for this guide (one mounting bolt). Some like my Honda HRR216VKA have two blades an upper and a lower (two mounting bolts). Each blade should have at least two cutting edges.

Consumer Reports recommends the Toro Recycler 20333 because of its very good ratings in ease of use handling side discharging and bagging and excellent mulching. The reviewer specifically liked the washout port for cleaning buildup under the sizable deck. The Wirecutter used to list the 20333 as the runner-up pick but supplanted it with the 20340 because of the newer models upright storage. However the reviewer still recommends the 20333 if the blade brake clutch is more important to you than compact storage.

Place a drip pan or other container on the side of the mower with the filler. Carefully tilt the mower so oil drains out and into the pan. Discard the spent oil into a proper disposal vessel. Now slowly pour fresh oil into the mower. For the specific type of oil you need check your instruction manual. Make sure to add only as much as your particular model requires. Remember to let the mower sit undisturbed for a few minutes so the oil settles properly inside the engine.

The Sun Joe MJ104E has more than 1250 five-star reviews on Amazon. Buyer Jim has had his Mow Joe for more than a year and left it in the weather and abused it otherwise. He is happy with how it has performed. He cautions against buying the 16-gauge extension cord recommended by Amazon. Instead choose 12 gauge for 100 feet or more and 14 gauge for under 100 feet.

I know that many people prefer to hose their mowers down with a garden hose. I admit I have done it. Still doing that is risky. If water gets into the wiring air filter or engine you could really do some damage. Hand washing with damp rag is a drag but also your safest bet.

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.

In the following guide we mainly focus on walk-behind mowers since the majority of lawns are served perfectly well by these machines. However if you have a lawn that is larger than half an acre you may want a riding mower. If you have a yard that is between a quarter and half an acre consider a self-propelled model. This basically means you do less pushing. Self-propelled mowers are especially helpful on hills. Also pay special attention to blade size. Look for a mower with a blade thats at least 20-inches long if you have a larger yard. Conversely if you have many narrow areas to mow a smaller deck the area within which the blade spins around is best.
