Bolens Self Propelled Lawn Mower V469Q

The Bolens Self Propelled Lawn Mower V469Q is full featured with almost everything most Bolens Self Propelled Lawn Mower V469Qurban consumers will need for cutting their lawn. The twenty one inch wide deck is plenty wide enough for most home owners to cut an average lawn. There are wider lawn mowers, however for most people this lawn mower will be fine. It is rear wheel drive with four speeds so this takes getting used to. Personally I like the front wheel drive machines, since I can keep the drive engaged and just lift the front wheels a bit to slow it down or turn while disengaging the wheels from the ground. For those of you who like the option you can choose between mulching your lawn, discharging it along from the side or just spreading the clippings across your lawn.

This is a versatile machine which most home owners will enjoy using while trimming their 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. Spilt 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 making 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.
