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.
Gather what you need First gather your tools and equipment. You will need a power drill eye protection work gloves and a blade sharpening kit. The kit should come with a ceramic blade sharpener and balancer. Expect to pay about $8 for the kit at your local hardware store. You will also need a torque wrench (or a socket wrench in a pinch) and a wooden block. Consider having a rubber mallet on hand too.
Get out there and mow Now that you have done all that your mower should be ready to tackle the season in stride. It should run smoother and more safely too. Even better you have just saved the $200 to $300 fee it typically costs at least in my neck of the woods to have your lawn mower serviced professionally. So go on and get out there. That high grass needs cutting.
