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. Fuel spills 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:

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.

Accessories

The rear discharge kit was the only accessory mentioned.

Price & Delivery

The MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q can be purchased at a number of dealers around the country. We did not see a price on the company’s website for this push lawn mower.

Maintenance

Consumers who take good care of the MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q will have a lawn mower that lasts for many years. After every grass cutting, clean off the deck of the lawn mower to prevent buildup of wet grass that is acidic and  can over time eat away at the deck of the lawn mower.

If you do not think this can happen, the writer can attest that it actually happened on his lawn mower.

Also, before starting the MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q each time, check it over to confirm there are no loose parts, that there is sufficient oil in the engine and sufficient gasoline in the tank for to cut your lawn. As a general rule you should not fill a gasoline tank while the engine is hot.

Change the oil based on the recommendations of the manufacturer, however it should be changed at least once per season as a minimum and more often if you are a heavy user and have a lot of lawn to cut.

Safety & Operation

A few comments about safety and operation of the MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q and really any lawn mower. When ever you are working on the lawn mower always shut the engine off. Never try to clear grass from the housing while the engine is running. The same goes for oil changes and changing the grass catcher. Many people will circumvent what is known as the dead man’s switch i.e. when you release the bar, the engine stops, however some people will wire these closed so that the engine remains running even if your hands are not on the push handle. We strongly recommend against this approach. Never allow the engine to run while you are doing anything other than cutting grass.

Sometimes sharp objects could exit out of the opening at the back while the grass catcher bag is removed or out of the side discharge if you are using that option. Sharp objects can damage and hurt anything in their way so just turn off the machine before doing any maintenance.
