Bolens Push Mower Model 549Q

The Bolens Push Mower Model 549Q comes with a Honda 1600cc OHC engine featuring low emissions, and a low noise engine with a rear bag grass catcher.  Bolens Push Mower Model 549QConsumers can choose between mulching, discharge, and using the rear bag grass catcher to deal with various lengths of grass and conditions. The rear bag grass catcher is better than a side discharge catcher since it takes much less room and is much easier to navigate around landscaping and other obstructions normally found in urban areas.

The rear wheels are 12 inches high providing great strength and maneuverability to move around your lawn with a full bag of grass clippings. This is a great lawn mower and will suit the needs of most consumers with average size lawns.

Safety & Operation

All lawn mowers should be treated with respect. They are powerful machines and in the wrong hands can do a lot of damage. Start by reading the manual and following all of the safety guidelines outlined in the manual. Never work on the lawn mower without first ensuring that the engine is turned off.

While cutting the lawn and using the side discharge, never allow anyone to stand beside the discharge or point the discharge at something that could be damaged by high speed flying objects ejected from the lawn mower.

Always check the engine to make sure that there is sufficient oil in the engine before starting each day. Top up if necessary.  Fill the fuel tank while the engine is cool. A good time to do this is before you start cutting the lawn. Spilled fuel can sometimes cause fires. If you do spill any fuel, wait until it evaporates prior to starting the engine to avoid any chance of fire. Always fill the fuel tank outdoors.

Shut the engine off before removing the rear bag to empty it of grass or make any other kind of adjustments to the lawn mower.


Maintenance of the lawn mower is pretty straight forward. Read the guidelines in the manual and follow them.  Arrange to have your engine tuned up once a year and the oil changed at the same time. This applies to most consumer applications where you are cutting your lawn once a week. If you are using the lawn mower for commercial applications you may need to change the oil more often.

Keep the housing free of debris to avoid the acid from the grass causing the housing to deteriorate. Also, keep grass from building up around the muffler to avoid the possibility of fire. Check the spark plug to ensure that it is not corroded and dirty. Replace if it is pitted. Always use clean fresh gasoline for your lawn mower. Following these tips and others in the manual will ensure that your lawn mower will last for many years.
