WHY, WHAT & WHEN TO HAVE YOUR MOTOR MOWER SERVICED

 


WHY have your mower serviced

Present day motor Mowers & Tractors have complex engines & working parts and need to be kept in pristine condition. They need regular maintenance to keep your investment in peak working condition.


WHAT is involved in Servicing a Motor Mower

A ‘Service’ is NOT just checking the spark plug and topping up the oil, there is a host of procedures that are carried out by our own professional Service Engineers.

Our ‘Service’ includes

  • Remove all guards and covers
  • Clean the machine to remove grass build-up and oil residues
  • Remove the Carburettor and clean it in an ultra-sonic tank
  • Flush the fuel tank to remove any stale fuel or contamination
  • Add new fuel (with additive)
  • Check the gap on the ignition coil and adjust as necessary
  • Check & adjust the Spark Plug or replace if required
  • Check & clean the air filters or replace if necessary
  • Check & adjust Drive Belts & Cables and replace if necessary
  • Check & tighten engine mounts and handle-bar bolts
  • Sharpen and balance the cutting blades
  • Replenish engine with fresh oil
  • Lubricate height adjusters, wheels, control levers & cables
  • Check and replace the pull start cord if damaged
  • Check the re-coil springs and lubricate as necessary
  • Run & Test all machine functions, check engine speeds and re-tune the carburettor

 


WHEN is the best time to have your mower serviced

Ideally, the best time to service your mower is at the end of the cutting season. Storing a used machine in a shed over the cold winter period could cause corrosion from damp grass cuttings and fuel & oil loosing their strength. We can, of course, service and repair your machine any time of the year that suits you best.

We offer a FREE OF CHARGE COLLECTION & DELIVERY SERVICE in the local area (within 10 miles) throughout the year. Collection and delivery outside the local area will have a nominal charge.  

To inspire ‘out-of-season’ servicing and repairs, we offer a FREE OF CHARGE COLLECTION & DELIVERY SERVICE ‘OUTSIDE’  of the local area (within 20 miles) from November through to the end of January. Contact us for further details / locations.

No need to have a dirty machine carried in your car. Call us for further details.
