Consumers who take good care of the MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 589Q 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. Over time eat away at the deck of the lawn mower. Build up of grass near the exhaust can also ignite a fire or at least cause a lot of smoke to be generated. If you do not think this can happen, the writer can attest that it actually happened on his lawn mower.

Also, before starting the  mower 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 589Q 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 know 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. Sharp objects can damage and hurt anything in their way so just turn off the machine before doing any maintenance.
