Safety & Operation

Always read the operator’s manual prior to assembly and prior to starting the Bolens Self Propelled lawn mower for the first time. Take the time to understand all of the safety concerns and areas that you need to pay attention to while operating the Bolens Self Propelled lawnmower.

There are some basics to safety while operating the lawnmower. First, always complete an inspection of the lawnmower prior to starting each day. Look for loose parts and check the oil level and the fuel level. Top up the engine oil as required to ensure that the engine has sufficient oil at all times.

While you are operating the lawnmower, always ensure that no one is in the path of the side-discharge to avoid being hit by flying objects. Always shut the engine off prior to emptying the grass catcher for similar reasons. You do not want to be hit by moving objects thrown out by the lawnmower blades.

Adjust the lawnmower speed to a comfortable walking rate and the density of the grass that you are cutting. Use the 4-speed control to change speed on the fly if you encounter thicker harder to cut grass.

If you need to clear clumps of grass from under the lawnmower, always shut the engine off before doing any work under the lawnmower. We also recommend that you disconnect the spark plug wire so there is no danger of accidentally starting the engine while you are cleaning under the deck of the lawnmower.

Bolens Self Propelled Lawn Mower – Maintenance

The manual for the lawnmower will cover all required maintenance activities including the frequency of oil changes. Depending on the use you may need to change the oil once a month if you have lots of lawn to cut. On the other hand, a small lawn will not require oil changes nearly as often. At the minimum change the oil annually to extend the life of the engine and use of the lawnmower.

The blades should also be sharpened at least once per year to provide sharp blades that cut the grass and avoid tearing the blades. Most people are comfortable doing this work themselves. However, a small engine mechanic can complete these activities for you including changing the oil and changing the spark plug if needed.

  2. I bought a Bolens like this back in the early nineties in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
    I would like to buy the one if I can.
    My ex-wife took the one I bought. It was a nice mower.
    I bought a Bolens with the large back wheels for mowing, but not as good as the 1839Q one.
    Please let me know if I can order one even from Canada.
