Description of the CRAFTSMAN MD Self-propelled 3-in-1 Rear-wheel Drive Gas Lawn Mower
The cutting deck in addition to being 22 inches wide can also be adjusted to one of 5 cutting heights allowing you to achieve the desired height for your lawn. Cut it short for that manicured golf green look, or leave it long to protect the roots during those really hot summer days. It is your choice and easy to adjust.
The mower speed can be adjusted up to a maximum of 3.3 miles per hour to match a comfortable walk behind speed. Consumers will like the idea of switching between the grass catcher attached at the rear of the lawn mower to a mulching deck to a side discharge. With choices like these you can maintain your lawn just the way you want to.
This self propelled lawn mower also comes with one oil bottle. Check the engine before you start it and add the oil to the oil filler spout as directed in the manual. Always read the manual cover and follow the instructions as outlined to cover prior to starting the engine for the first time.
Delivery: All lawn mowers can be picked up at the store or dealer you purchased the lawn mower from. For an additional fee, most will also deliver the lawn mower to you at your home.
All motorized equipment should be treated with respect and care. Start by reading all of the safety and operating guidelines outlined in the manual that comes with the CRAFTSMAN MD Self-propelled 3-in-1 Rear-wheel Drive Gas Lawn Mower. Follow these guidelines carefully and you should not have any problems with operating 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.
When using the side discharge, never allow anyone to stand in front of the discharge unit to avoid being hit by any debris. 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 CRAFTSMAN MD Self-propelled 3-in-1 Rear-wheel Drive Gas 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. Make 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.
