To quickly start any chainsaw, a starter is required. With accelerated scrolling of the crankshaft of the tool, the fuel-air mixture supplied to the engine is compressed and its subsequent ignition. Therefore, the normal operation of the starter for a chainsaw determines the operability of the entire mechanism.
The most common tool breakdowns include the following:
stopping the operation of the chainsaw in the process of cutting;
power loss during operation;
wear of some structural elements of the chainsaw (brake band, drive sprockets, anti-vibration parts);
problems in the fuel supply system;
malfunctions associated with the starter.
In addition, it is necessary to carry out a visual inspection of the chainsaw before starting work and preventive measures. These include chain lubrication, control of the amount of fuel mixture, as well as the presence of the required amount of oil.
Unscrew the spark plug to check its condition.
Each of the faults is eliminated by its technology. So, for example, repair of the fuel system of a chainsaw should begin with an inspection of the appropriate filter. After that, check the carburetor regulation, which is carried out using screws. Clearances must be set in strict accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, which must be included with the chainsaw. To repair the ignition system include inspections of candles. If a strong deposit is detected, a change in the gap or other visible damage occurs, this element must be replaced.
How to repair a chainsaw starter with your own hands
Presented is the repair of a chainsaw starter after a break in the starter cord. Without a starter cord, the chainsaw becomes completely inoperative; there is no other way to start the tool. The repair was examined using the Partner P350S chainsaw as an example; a tricky reliable start of this saw requires a minimum of 4-5 times pulling the starter cord in order for the saw to work, therefore, probably, the first malfunction was a break in the cord. The cord does not tear immediately, the protective stocking of the cord threads breaks off at first and prevents the saw from starting. It is better not to wait for all the threads to break and fix the cord in advance. There is no need to invent anything, repair should not cause difficulties, but exact observance of the assembly conditions is necessary. A step-by-step instruction with a diagram of actions with photos and videos is given below.
1. Unscrew the three screws securing the starter cover. The included candle wrench with a straight screwdriver is suitable for this process, but to speed up the work it is better to use a normal tool.
2. Remove the starter. The chainsaw is equipped with a soft start mechanism, it is located above the reel with a cord.
3. Unscrew the screw securing the soft starter and starter coil. Caution do not lose the puck!
4. We remove the soft-start mechanism.
5. We take out the cord winding coil.
6. We prepare a cord suitable for the diameter of 1.2-1.3 meters in length. For repair used kapron clothesline :).
7. We melt the ends of the rope over a fire so as not to dissolve.
8. Tied at one end of a complex knot. The assembly is required to be large in diameter, but should not protrude when mounted on a coil.
9. We fill the cord into the hole of the coil. Do not wrap the cord!
10. Insert the coil into place. Installation error may be made here. The coil has two slots, in one of which a spiral spring hook should fall. Install the coil so that it snaps firmly into place and the hook snaps into place. It is checked by turning the coil clockwise to determine the occurrence of a return force.

11. Install the soft starter. The protrusion of the mechanism should stand in the recess of the coil.
12. We fasten the fixing screw with the washer.
13. We fill the second end of the cord into the outlet.
Installing the soft starter
14. Fill the cord into the start handle. We tie a large knot at the end of the rope. With a small knot, there is a chance of the rope slipping and the entire cord is wrapped in the starter and in order to get it out the starter will need to be removed again. Check the reliability of the node. Look at the photo.
Cord in trigger handle
15. The most important moment! We release the loop of the cord inside the starter and begin to rotate the starter mechanism clockwise without winding the cord! For this saw, you must make a minimum of five turns. We fix the coil by hand. We pull the loop by the handle outward. Holding the cord and mechanism, we allow the cord to be wound on a reel. Watch a video.
16. Check the operation of the mechanism.
17. Install the starter in place and fasten it with three screws. Repair done.
Repairing a tattered or damaged cord using step-by-step instructions takes 15 minutes, which is much faster and cheaper than contacting a service center.
If the instructions helped you, let me know in the comments.
Chainsaw starter diagnostics
Due to the long-term operation of the chainsaw, the trigger mechanism becomes unusable. After one or several jerks, the crankshaft does not rotate when pulling the starter rope. This problem can be caused by the following reasons:
cracked or broken drive pulley;
the chainsaw starter spring burst;
a gust of rope launch.
Before starting work on the diagnosis and repair of the start-up mechanism, it is necessary to prepare the necessary tools and accessories that will significantly reduce the time for operations. These include:
A set of bench screwdrivers and a specialized set of proprietary tools included in the scope of supply of the chainsaw.
Strong cord to replace a worn starter rope.
Chainsaw starter spring
At the first stage of repair of the chainsaw starter, it is necessary to identify the nature of the problem. To do this, remove the side cover from the side of the start mechanism, while unscrewing only a few screws. Depending on the manufacturer, this operation will require a specialized or conventional locksmith screwdriver.
Next, we inspect the inside of the protective casing. In the absence of cracks and chips of plastic, we proceed directly to the diagnosis of the launch site. We unscrew the central bolt of the starter and dismantle the spring. No cracks or gusts should be observed on its surface. It is problematic to choose a spring similar in strength and number of turns on your own, therefore the help of specialized centers will be required.
After removing the clamp and the starter spring of the chainsaw, a pulley with a wound cord is accessible for dismantling. The integrity of the rope indicates that it is necessary to carefully review each of the details of the trigger mechanism.
Device and principle of operation
The work of the starter is as follows: on the case of the chainsaw there is a handle through which a special cable passes, pulling and hooking the drum of the ratchet mechanism with a sharp pull. In this case, the movement is transmitted to the drum with splines on the shaft.
At this time, the crankshaft makes several full revolutions, as a result of which the working mixture is compressed between the cylinder head and piston. If you release the handle, then the contact between the splines and the ratchet will be lost, as a result of which the shaft will simply stop!
The larger the engine capacity of the chainsaw, the more fuel-air mixture will be required for further ignition. Based on this, as a rule, more jerks are required for starting high-power saws for the starting cable. For greater convenience and to accelerate the return of the drum, manufacturers began to use forceful return springs from elastic steels.
Trimmer Tuning (trimmer modernization) is a technical improvement of the trimmer, lawn mowers, lawn mowers or electric braids by replacing parts and assemblies with more expensive or improved ones, adding unusual parts and assemblies to the trimmer’s design, as well as better and more precise adjustment and adjustment of all nodes and systems for improving the technical characteristics and appearance of the trimmer.

Electric starter for trimmer
Trimmer electric starter (removable) for upgrading and tuning the trimmer. If you do not want to constantly pull the cord of the manual starter to start your trimmer, you can use one of 3 types of electric starters for the trimmer
electric starter with cord and
electric drill starter through a special adapter (adapter).
An electric starter for the trimmer is an optional accessory that is purchased separately from the trimmer. Also, its advantage is that it is removable and does not burden the trimmer itself during operation. The trimmer must be compatible with the starter, that is, your trimmer must have a socket for connecting an electric starter.
Starting the trimmer engine from the electric starter takes a few seconds, starting the engine with the touch of a button and even starting the engine in poor technical condition. the manual starter tries to start in jerks, and the electric starter turns the engine until it starts (if it is possible to start it at all, of course).
The battery starter for the trimmer is powered by a lithium-ion battery, one charge of which is enough for 25 starts of the trimmer.
An electric starter for a trimmer with a power cord connects to a conventional outlet.
An adapter (adapter) with which you can turn any drill into an electric starter for a trimmer (for a trimmer compatible with the adapter).

Support cup for protecting and sliding the trimmer head on the grass
Replace the button at the bottom of the trimmer head with a wide support cup, as shown in the video. This allows you to keep an even cut of the lawn, that is, the same height of mowing the lawn.
The trimmer from the lawn mower is primarily distinguished by the fact that the lawn mower mows exactly the lawn, and it is difficult to keep the cutting height at the trimmer as the trimmer head swings up / down.
Also, with such a cup under the trimmer head, you do not need to keep the trimmer head on weight (the trimmer head slides on the grass, copying the surface of the plot) and you should not be afraid to damage the trimmer head by hitting it with a solid stationary object (for example, a stone in the grass, a concrete fence post or about some kind of iron object).
Upgrading the trimmer would not be complete if you did not touch on the appearance of the trimmer. In order to fundamentally change the appearance of the trimmer and make it look really cool, you can remove the engine covers, clean them and paste over with a carbon-colored self-adhesive film.
Carbon. This is a composite material from the carbon fiber family, very light and very durable. It is used in aviation and expensive automotive industry.
Drawing on protection
You can apply the image to the plastic protection of the cutting equipment (metal knife or trimmer head). Protection has a significant area, which allows you to apply a fairly large image. This can also be attributed to tuning the trimmer.
A specialist in airbrushing can make your trimmer very beautiful and really cool. This is a powerful trim trim.
Zero Resistance Air Filter
The zero-resistance air filter provides the best filling of the cylinder with a fuel-air mixture, which increases the power, acceleration dynamics and revolutions of the trimmer motor.
Line exhaust silencer
Such a silencer is difficult to manufacture and is heavy, but a large silencer effectively removes smoke, roar and heat far back from the operator working on such a trimmer. At the same time, being a direct exhaust pipe, it does not create obstacles for exhaust gas exhaust, thereby contributing to a better release of the cylinder from exhaust gases and filling it with a fresh portion of the fuel-air mixture.
Knives, pendant, overalls
Trimmer tuning also includes the purchase of various cutting equipment for the trimmer (knives and trimmer heads). A more expensive belt suspension with a waist elastic belt, which partially removes the load from the shoulders of the operator and transfers it to the belt. As well as non-slip shoes, durable lightweight workwear, protective ear muffs, a face visor, anti-vibration gloves, etc. The trimmer setting includes these 8 elements to improve your trimmer, lawn mowers, lawn mowers or brush cutter.
Keep your trimmer, lawn mower, lawn mow clean (do not consider it shameful if necessary, wash the toiler with a brush with warm water).
Do timely maintenance and minor repairs to your trimmer (keep it in good condition).
Refuel only with high-quality imported gasoline at trusted gas stations (for example, A-95 Mustang gasoline at WOG gas stations).
Only buy oil that is specified in the user manual of your trimmer (it is better to buy the original oil from your dealer).
Consumables and accessories for the trimmer are also needed better. For example. a belt suspension with a lap belt, a set of different knives, expensive grease in the gearbox, heated handles, anti-vibration gloves, noise-insulating headphones with mp-3 player, cool safety glasses, etc.
If you treat your trimmer with care and attention (during maintenance and the selection of consumables), then he will thank you for years with dashing and uptime.
In the design of the chainsaw, the starter is responsible for the proper starting of the tool engine. Over time, owners of chainsaws are faced with the need to repair this important component. And, the earlier it is possible to eliminate the malfunction, the less other important parts and mechanisms of the tool will succumb to wear.
The device and principle of operation of the chainsaw starter
Most well-known chainsaw manufacturers equip their products with starters that work on almost the same principle. Its essence is as follows: in the groove of the saw body there is a handle through which a cord is passed. With a sharp lifting of the handle, the cord is also pulled, which engages the drum, which is in the ratchet mechanism. By means of this, a drum with spitz, which is located on the shaft, is driven. During this, the crankshaft makes a couple of revolutions, which leads to compression of the fuel mixture, which at this moment is between the cylinder head and the piston. When lowering the handle, on the contrary, the ratchet and spitz lose their contact, which leads to a shaft stop.
With an increase in the power of the chainsaw, the amount of the fuel mixture increases, which must be ignited when the chainsaw is started. In this case, to start the engine, it is necessary to increase the number of jerks of the starter cord. To accelerate the return of the drum mechanism, manufacturers use a special steel recoil starter spring with excellent elasticity. To facilitate the launch of the chainsaw, leading brands use other methods:
Pre-enrichment of the fuel mixture with a separate shutter;
Installation of an automatic decompression valve, which provides a decrease in pressure inside the cylinder of the chainsaw;
Installation of a primer designed for pumping fuel before starting the engine.
The use of one of these technologies greatly facilitates the launch and extends the life of the starter, which is especially noticeable at low temperatures.

Typical breaks and repair of a chainsaw starter
The appearance of various malfunctions of the starter leads to the inability to start a chainsaw. The most common starter breakdowns include:
The starter pulley has completely burst, or cracks have appeared on it;
The spring burst;
The starter cable broke.
Do-it-yourself tools will be required to fix each of these malfunctions. You must have a set of screwdrivers and a spare cable with you. Remove and inspect the starter for the chainsaw in the following order:
To find the cause of the breakdown, the starter from the chainsaw will need to be removed. To do this, unscrew the screws with which the protective cover is held with the starter attached to it;
After removing the cover, you must carefully unscrew the screw through which the starter is attached to the protective cover;
Then you need to try to smoothly start the starter. for this, remove the spring and clips from it;
Further, a coil with a cable is removed from the starter for inspection.
As a result of inspection, you can find a number of typical malfunctions. These include:
Various pulley damage in the form of tears or cracks mainly in the rear of the part. they interfere with the normal operation of the entire starter;
Damage to the starter spring of a light start. in such cases, not only the spring itself can be faulty, but also the place of its fixation. this is the most vulnerable part of the spring;
The starter flywheel dog is damaged.
In any case, any defective part must be completely replaced with a new spare part.
In order to replace the old spring in the disassembled starter, proceed in the following order:
Before installing the chainsaw starter spring, you will need to remove the clip of the mechanism. this should be done very carefully so as not to break the part;
Then you need to look inside the cage. in it you will see a spring wrapped around a C-shaped element. To pull out the spring, fix the upper part with your finger and slightly pull the starter handle to the side;
After removing the old spring, wrap a new part. At the same time, try to avoid kinks and twisting of the new spring element;
To assemble the spring of the starter of the chainsaw, you will need to act as carefully as possible, otherwise one incorrect movement can lead to unwinding of the spare part;
After you have managed to fully insert the spring into the starter, you must carefully lock the clip.
Optimum cutting width, as we have many flower beds and we need to crawl between them to maintain a neat appearance of the lawn. Not less than 32 cm, but not more than 42 cm. It turns out that 37 cm came out in the middle ground.
The presence of a grass catcher. I hate picking grass after mowing rake, let the machine do it for me;
Light weight, because if it is too heavy, it means not so maneuverable and I will get tired of mowing our site.
EXTERNAL VIEW OF THE BOSCH ARM 37 MOWER MOWER
It looks cool, even somewhat cosmic. I can’t call it compact, but nevertheless it doesn’t take up much space in the yard, especially if you remove the grass catcher.
ERGONOMIC HANDLE OF THE MOWER BOSCH
Adjustable handle for the growth of the operator (yes, I found this definition in the instructions). The husband put her under my height, the mother-in-law does not rearrange the situation, so as not to knock down. In addition, there is a lever to control the mowing height. Only 5 positions, from 20 to 70 mm. I always mow in the middle, if I set the minimum value, I just need a perfect surface, without holes and bumps, otherwise the knife will cut the ground. We don’t have such an ideal lawn, so I’ve got the mow in regime 3-4, I found it out experimentally: by convention, this is short enough, but I don’t cut the bumps.
Everything seems to be cool and thought out, BUT even if I work in gloves, then puki knock down, especially the right palm at the junction with the thumb. It’s not critical, but this area is 3-4 months per day napyvana significantly, so don’t even try to work without gloves!
For the cord there are special loops on both sides, fasten on the one with which it is convenient to mow. I usually throw the cord over the already beveled part, so as not to accidentally go over it, depending on how I go, from the other side and hang the cord. Fastens easily, but reliably:
The knife is fastened with a hex bolt; it unscrews without problems. The father-in-law removes it to straighten and sharpen. The steel of the knife itself is of high quality, for the first two months we definitely did not have to grind it, and the sharpening lasts much longer. Again, in comparison with AL-KO, whose steel was of poor quality, and almost every mowing knife required updating sharpening, otherwise the grass simply broke and crumpled.
When meeting with pebbles, notches naturally form, but in general, this does not greatly affect the performance of the device. For example, after 3 months of mowing, the knife already had the following traces of encountering obstacles:
Objectively, the grass catcher is small. only 40 liters, but this is more than some other electric lawn mowers. It is filled very quickly and actively, but the mower leaves no gaps, i.e. from the first pass collects all-all cut grass. If you suddenly notice that something remains, then the grass catcher is already full. You can check by simply lifting the lid:
INPUT DATA OR OPERATING CONDITIONS OF THE LAWN MOWER
Our site is rather big: 27 hundred parts. It should be understood that it is rather difficult to maintain a lawn in such good condition. It was easier for me when I was on maternity leave and could mow grass at any convenient and appropriate time. Now I come to the country on short visits, mainly on weekends, so it is important for me to quickly put the site in order. Now this is partially possible, so the mother-in-law also has to mow.
Hence the conclusion: the lawn in our family is mowed mainly by women.
The second conclusion: sometimes I could walk along the wet grass, because I couldn’t wait for good weather. No, I don’t mow in the rain (firstly, it is forbidden by TB, and secondly, wet grass clogs the inlet and the grass catcher does not fill up), but you have to mow the slightly wet grass.
The rest is no exotic if you do not take into account the size of the site.
Average, 27 acres at work every day for 3-4 hours are put in order for 4 days, given that we grow not only beautiful lawn grass, but also meadow grass, but also special grass that is resistant to trampling: it is terribly dense and shallow. It turns out here either to mow all days on the weekend or to break this process into stages. The indicator for such a mowing width is normal and in this respect I am satisfied.
So, let’s startfrom the cut. I am satisfied with this parameter, the grass does not crease, does not chew, it is cut off. The cut is smooth without torn edges:
Second point: processing the edges of paths, flower beds etc. In this regard, I also have no complaints. It turns out pretty neat, while without harm to the knife thanks to the limiter. For example, here is the area near the stone river:
In dense areas, or areas with hard meadow grass, the machine may lose power, this is noticeable in the corresponding sound, but it chews it all the same.
The third point: maneuverability and lightness. And this is just a song. After I got acquainted with a 40-pound gas mower, and then picked up this one again, it seemed to me like a feather. I have 57 kg of weight and I can do it perfectly even with 1 hand. It’s easy to deploy even 360 degrees. I always mow a snake in a straight line, i.e. reached the end point, turned in the opposite direction and went back. I did not have problems with maneuverability.
BOSCH WARRANTY MAINTENANCE
Even a year ago, I would have put the well-deserved 5 points and would have been unconditionally satisfied. BUT in July of this year, she suddenly refused to work. It does not turn on and that’s it. Our mowing season lasts from mid-May to mid-September, i.e. 4 full months. We bought it in August 2016. It turns out that it worked for about 6.5 months and died. SO, not a single equipment worked for us. it was at least 2.5-3 full season.
There was only one joy: the guarantee for unprofessional gardening equipment BOSCH is 2 years, i.e. Until August 2018, we could still use the repair service under the guarantee.
I must say right away that my idea of confusing myself with this was met with skepticism in the family: my husband did not want to carry a mower, rather large in size, back and forth, and he did not particularly believe in success. But I insisted on my own. I called on a hot fishing line and they explained everything to me, in general there were 2 options:
Bring the mower on your own from any of the 3 services located near Moscow (located not to say that it is very convenient)
Order free delivery of your instrument to the service.
Actually, I decided to use the second option. It seems that this offer is available only to residents of Moscow, but I could be wrong. In general, you need to fill out an application on their official website by filling out all the data on the instrument. I’ll leave a direct link to this section for you, because it is extremely difficult to find the site itself and this tab: LINK
Important! Have a completed warranty card on hand! I had it partially filled: with the seller’s seals and some data, but the serial was not entered, and I entered it myself from the sticker on the typewriter itself.
In general, everything is simple: they filled out an application, packed a tool in a box, and put a warranty in it. We had difficulties with the box, but they shoved the machine into the box from under the car seat without a grass catcher.
The courier arrived, took the instrument and that’s it. Silence. I was already mentally preparing for a verbal struggle in an attempt to prove that they say they used the tool carefully, didn’t force it much, and there were no objective reasons for the breakdown. A week passed, and there was not a rumor, and when a courier calls her husband to work, they say he brought the tool, take it.
In general, they just silently changed our engine assembly. And this, for a minute, 70% of the cost of the machine! No questions, comments or bickering. They simply took it away, repaired it and delivered it back for free. This is a service!
Actually, if not for this fact, I would be very angry and significantly reduce the overall assessment of the lawn mower, and so, the work of the service center and the maximum customer focus melted my heart
In general, I am satisfied with my purchase, the BOSCH lawn mower has a lot of advantages: it is light, maneuverable, mowing grass the first time, perfectly collects garbage from the lawn in the form of leaves and twigs, the grass catcher is very capacious. The controls are clear, simple and convenient, there are many different adjustments to tailor the tool for you and your needs. The annoying trouble with the breakdown brought some smack of disappointment, but the work of the service center and warranty service as a whole sweetened this pill. I RECOMMEND!

Pluses: Very easy to manage, just what I wanted. As soon as I turned in love with this mower. It works like a beast, mows grass above a knee and cuts it into chips. Not very noisy. I bought a wire for 50 meters already adapted to it.
Minuses: I have not seen them yet.
Advantages: Lightweight, well made, cuts well, the blades do not blunt.
Pluses: assembly. Ease of use. Noise level.
Minuses: Very soft knife. The output of grass to the tank will be functional provided that only dry grass is sheared
Comment: Section haircuts 5 acres. The lawn is not gentle, many dandelions and bumps. I took this baby to replace the cheaper noname model and immediately felt the difference in performance. Materials, mounts and ergonomics are not made anyhow, but with care for the owner. Yes, she is not a monster who will chop a large weed or molehills, but she must be watched and looked after after 1-2 haircuts. But the result justifies these efforts. It is convenient to carry, roll, store. It is not noisy, not narrow. Easy to adjust cutting height. In general, I would just like a more thorough knife (in terms of metal).
Pluses: Easy. Mows perfectly! You can mow without a bag, “take it” at a good angle and the mowed grass does not fly at you and the gap between it and the lawn mower’s body does not clog (it’s very convenient when you keep the lawn of the right height with its frequent mowing)
Disadvantages: Well, maybe once out of ten you don’t get the grass catcher into the landing method from the first time.
Pluses: I write after a year of use. Powerful, easy to drive, the grass catcher is roomy and reliable.
Minuses: Not detected
Comment: Very pleased with the purchase
Pluses: awesome! Mows dead wood and fresh (quinoa does not take the old), but mows amazingly! The grass was tall, the grass tank clogged quickly, but by doing this you allow the engine to rest during breaks to clean the tank. But mowing quickly, in one penetration, even grass. You can even manage to climb the curb and gently holding a knife over the curb to cut the grass that grows close to the curb. Very like. No trimmer needed! Thanks!
Minuses: There is no holder-clamp for the extension cord.
Pluses: Good power, copes with small bushes, works for a long time without a break, mobile.
Advantages: light, comfortable, cuts grass well, even tall.

Advantages: Price and quality, easy handling, powerful engine
Comment: I bought for a lawn with an area of 200 square meters, as well as tall grass around a site up to 50 cm high. It copes with all the tasks with a bang.
Advantages: 15 acres in 2 hours. Unpretentious. Mowing normally even wet tall grass. Sometimes chopped grass sometimes bends. It’s better to go through your hands to remove it so that the roots do not remain. Roughness slips without any problems. I am very glad that I took the electric. Pushing uphill is not difficult
Advantages: Excellent mowing, mowing close to side obstacles.
Minuses: missing assembly instructions &# 128578; It is funny and sad at the same time
Comment: Perfectly mows any grass. He took in return the deceased gasoline. A few observations: 1. two extension cords of 25m each. enough for my eyes on a plot of 20 acres. 2. Whatever the wires would interfere with, lay out the rings in the middle of the end of the lawn, with oblique passages left and right. An hour later they will stop bothering you 3. Do not be lazy to shake grass from the collector. 4. DO NOT BE LAZY to inspect the lawn for stones and large branches. Sharpening or changing the knife is not easier. 5. After mowing, be sure to clean the mower. The grass dries up. spend 5 times more time. 6. If you have a low voltage in the network. use a stabilizer. I work in tandem with 3kW-com, always at full power. 7. If the same stone or branches hit, inspect the knife. Dumb. shoot and sharpen. Otherwise, the knife will grind the grass, and the wet mass will clog the channels. 8. Feel free to take if there is 220V. No gas, oil, etc. The total area of lawns is 20 acres. Koshu once a week, it happens more often. All perfectly.
Advantages and disadvantages
There is a nuance when mowing grass that is too long: if the tank overflows from it, the grass begins to fall out. This is not critical, but it is better to look. An extension cord is required, there is a specific plug connector.
Recommendation for users: at least once a season of use, remove the top cover and clean the electric motor of grass. Otherwise, the engine overheats and, as a result, the seat of the ED bearing and the failure of the entire unit are deformed. Repair in specialized workshops is not economically feasible.
I tried not wet grass (the weather brings) because of this, the grass container is quickly overloaded.
In general, like it. Suitable for not running lawn. Do not believe those who write that they take thick and tall grass in one pass. you need to go through dense thickets at least twice back and forth. Then shake out the grass catcher and clean the niche with a knife. To be honest, I did not believe that a machine with such grass could handle it in principle, I was already thinking of getting a trimmer. This year, I started to mow late. But here it is, an even lawn already turns green after a mowed high cover. As for the handle, which on the grass catcher, had to be further strengthened with a simple construction and self-tapping screws, now I am not afraid that it will fall off when moving a full container. The knife was already pocked with stones, removed and ground with a file.
mowing it for several years in the country, the plot is not always flat, but due to the adjustment of the knife, this is not a problem. quite large, it can be problematic to store, it stands in the greenhouse, does not interfere. knives sharpen in any sharpening, that is, a dull knife is also not a problem. good mower.
Perfectly mows any grass. He took in return the deceased gasoline. A few observations: 1. two extension cords of 25m each. enough for my eyes on a plot of 20 acres. 2. Whatever the wires would interfere with, lay out the rings in the middle of the end of the lawn, with oblique passages left and right. After an hour, they will stop bothering you. 3. Do not be lazy to shake grass from the collection. 4. DO NOT BE LAZY to inspect the lawn for stones and large branches. Sharpening or changing the knife is not easier. 5. After mowing, be sure to clean the mower. The grass dries up. spend 5 times more time. 6. If you have a low voltage in the network. use a stabilizer. I work in tandem with 3kW-com, always at full power. 7. If the same stone or branches hit, inspect the knife. Dumb. shoot and sharpen. Otherwise, the knife will grind the grass, and the wet mass will clog the channels. 8. Feel free to take if there is 220V. No gas, oil, etc. The total area of lawns is 20 acres. Koshu once a week, it happens more often. All perfectly.
I think a perfectly balanced model Price-Quality-Reliability
quality costs money; in this model, the costs are worth it. Mowing, including tall, dense grass. Very comfortable grip. I liked to manage, holding on to the vertical part. Hands are tired, you can change position and grab the horizontal part. The pick-up box is large enough; you do not have to shake it often. During storage it takes up little space. the handle and grass collector quickly and simply fold up. I went to the second season, very happy!) Recommended to relatives and friends.
I like it. Small, light, understandable.
The machine for work on a well-groomed lawn; the rains passed, the grass got out nourishing, but naturally did not mow in the rains. It is difficult for her to cut a thick and juicy grass, especially if set up shorter. We have to take breaks and slow down during work. But in general, very good. The move is easy, the quality material. For regular mowing. excellent, for tall and dense grass. rather weak.
Not a bad device, the same engine as on Viking, only the price is higher due to the brand). Very easy to operate.
Mows regularly for the third summer. The volume of about 400 square meters. Periodically point knives. There are no global complaints, given that it was bought for less than 4000 rubles. He works out his money, but if you skip mowing for a week, the whole process turns into horror. It does not cope with tall grass, so you have to mow once a week.
Pros: Quiet electric mower, roomy grass catcher. 37 cm knives are suitable for several Bosch models. Cons: The previous model lasted 3 years and flew an anchor on the engine. Only change the engine for 5500 rubles. meaning! bought a new mower for 8500
Pros: Easy running, quiet, easy to clean, easy to cut. Mows everything, copes with unevenness. Excellent device, did not regret it. Review: There is a nuance when mowing grass that is too long: if the tank overflows from it, the grass begins to fall out. This is not critical, but it is better to look. An extension cord is required, there is a specific plug connector.
Pros: Easy control, sufficient power, light weight Cons: Often have to clean. No hopper full indicator. Review: Honestly, I was not familiar with lawn mowers before. It seemed to me that I would roll it in front of me, the grass would be cut and stacked in a bunker. And I received something similar, but with some reservations. The space where the knife is located is very quickly clogged. Literally 40-50 meters and all the cut grass is pressed into a solid moist mass and covers the entire space around the knife. Clogs the hole for feeding grass into the hopper and the grass ceases to flow there. There were times when I mow grass, mow, look, and the bunker is empty. And this turns out to be clogged inlet and all this mulch fell out onto the lawn. It’s bad that there is no hopper filling indicator. Again, the bunker is full, you don’t see this, and all the cut grass falls out onto the lawn again. Therefore, all by trial and error. He squinted a little, checked the hopper, turned the mower over, cleaned the knife and mowed on.
Pros: Easy. Mows perfectly! You can mow without a bag, “take it” at a good angle and the mowed grass does not fly at you and the gap between it and the lawn mower’s body does not clog (it’s very convenient when you keep the lawn of the right height with its frequent mowing) Cons: Well, maybe one out of ten times you don’t get the grass catcher into the landing method the first time.
Pros: Convenient handle, reliable design, wide grip angle. Cons: since April we use not found Review: Gave her husband a birthday, Kosh herself)))
Pros: Lightweight, powerful, compact, convenient cutting height adjustment, a sufficiently large and rigid grass catcher. Cons: The cost is a bit upsetting. It is unsuitable for repair, since the cost of spare parts covers the cost of a new unit, not to mention the cost of the repair itself. There is not enough mulching or lateral ejection function, but I adapted to this with the help of improvised means. Review: Recommendation for users: at least once a season of use, remove the top cover and clean the electric motor of grass. Otherwise, the engine overheats and, as a result, the seat of the ED bearing and the failure of the entire unit are deformed. Repair in specialized workshops is not economically feasible.
Pros: I liked the mower. Lightweight, obedient, reliable. Cons: Not yet discovered Testimonial: I tried it on wet grass (the weather is bad) because of this, the grass container is quickly overloaded.
Pros: powerful motor, comfortable handles. Easy to change knife height. Cons: Uncomfortable to deploy. A small box for grass. Designed only for a round socket, which is not always at hand. All the time strives to run into a wire)
Assessment Pros: Lightweight, relatively quiet, copes with the work, the cutting height is conveniently adjustable. The handles are comfortable. Cons: Power is sometimes not enough on bunches of grass, in thick grass it can also jam. The handle on the grass catcher is weak. The space with knives is clogged with grass, it is impossible to clear the cracks, I will wash with a Karcher, at the risk of pouring water on the motor Review: Overall, I like it. Suitable for not running lawn. Do not believe those who write that they take thick and tall grass in one pass. you need to go through dense thickets at least twice back and forth. Then shake out the grass catcher and clean the niche with a knife.
To be honest, I did not believe that a machine with such grass could handle it in principle, I was already thinking of getting a trimmer. This year, I started to mow late. But here it is, an even lawn already turns green after a mowed high cover.
As for the handle, which on the grass catcher, had to be further strengthened with a simple construction and self-tapping screws, now I am not afraid that it will fall off when moving a full container.
The knife was already pocked with stones, removed and ground with a file.
Pros: The ability to adjust the height of the knife, a container for grass (light enough, can be easily taken out and does not crumble Cons: Small wheels, it is better for her to mow a perfectly flat surface Review: we mowed her at the dacha for several years, the site is not always flat, but by adjusting the knife, this is not a problem. quite large, it can be problematic to store, it stands in the greenhouse, does not interfere. knives sharpen in any sharpening, that is, a dull knife is also not a problem. good mower.
Pros: I am writing after a year of use. Powerful, easy to drive, the grass catcher is roomy and reliable. Cons: Not Found Review: Very pleased with the purchase
Pros: Awesome! Mows dead wood and fresh (quinoa does not take the old), but mows amazingly! The grass was tall, the grass tank clogged quickly, but by doing this you allow the engine to rest during breaks to clean the tank. But mowing quickly, in one penetration, even grass. You can even manage to climb the curb and gently holding a knife over the curb to cut the grass that grows close to the curb. Very like. No trimmer needed! Thanks! Cons: No holder-clamp for the extension cord.
Pros: light, comfortable, cuts grass well, even tall. Cons: no
Pros: The wife is delighted, light, shears with dignity, a mole trap from a thick steel wire was wound on a knife, but she didn’t do much trouble, slightly adjusted the knife with a sharpener and drove on
Pros: Price and quality, easy handling, powerful engine Cons: None Review: I bought for a lawn with an area of 200 square meters, as well as tall grass around a site up to 50 cm high. She copes with all the tasks with a bang.
Pros: Excellent mowing, mowing close to side obstruction. Cons: Missing assembly instructions laughter and sin Review: Perfectly mows any grass. He took in return the deceased gasoline. A few observations: 1. two extension cords of 25m each. enough for my eyes on a plot of 20 acres. 2. Whatever the wires would interfere with, lay out the rings in the middle of the end of the lawn, with oblique passages left and right. An hour later they will stop bothering you 3.

Bosch ARM 37 (0.600.8A6.201) reviews:
In this review, we will consider the operation of one of the most popular Bosch lawnmower models. Rotak 37. This is far from a novelty that has already managed to win the favor of many customers. The digital index of the model indicates the width of the mowed lawn in centimeters. This is the average value for the Rotak line, since all models for this parameter are in the range from 32 to 40 cm. The larger the mowing band width is, the higher the price, and the Rotak 37 model here looks like some kind of optimal choice.
In addition to the Rotak range, Bosch also has cordless lawn mowers (they can be recognized by the letters “LI” in the model name), hand-held lawn mowers and the new Bosch Indego garden lawn mower. I hope we will have the opportunity to tell you about him. But for now, let’s take a closer look at our current hero.
Despite the fact that the blades of a lawn mower are made of high-quality steel, they need to be sharpened from time to time. Fortunately, this does not require special skills and equipment, and today we will tell you how to sharpen the knife of the lawn mower ourselves, without compromising the quality of the metal.
You can cut off excess grass from the lawn even if the edges of the mower’s knife are obviously dull. However, the shoots will delaminate in the longitudinal direction, turning into a fringe. A few days after mowing, the grass will become stale and will hurt for a few more weeks. The cut should be smooth and neat, then it will drag out in just a few hours and the lawn will always be juicy green. This requires that the knife be sharpened almost perfectly.
Left: grass cut by a blunted mower blade. Right: sharp-cut grass
How to remove a knife from a lawn mower
Before proceeding with the partial dismantling of the mower, you need to protect yourself and her. If the device with an electric drive is enough just to disconnect from the network, then gasoline lawn mowers require preliminary training. First of all, you need to remove the cap from the spark plug. Next, fuel leaks should be excluded, that is, either drain the tank or place a sealed rubber membrane under the lid and turn off the fuel cock. Turn the mower only toward the handle, unless otherwise specified in the operating instructions. Before turning the mower upside down, be sure to squeeze the crankcase exhaust hose so as not to spill the oil.
Knives of various configurations are used in lawn mowers. In the simplest case, this is an ordinary two-bladed plate of complex shape, but the knife can also be composite. the upper blade is designed to mulch the mowed grass. Four-bladed knives are also found, which can be both composite and on a common base.
The knife can be mounted either with one bolt in the center through the shaped washer, or with two bolts with a fit on the center hole or pin. In any case, the thread on the bolts is right, respectively, you need to unscrew it counterclockwise. To block the shaft from rotation, substitute a block resting on the ground under the knife. It is advisable to remember or outline the position of the blade (s), so as not to confuse anything when reassembling. Loosen the bolts temporarily into the free holes.
Cleaning and editing
When the knife is removed, it must first be cleaned of adhering dirt and hardened herbal juice. The easiest way to do this is to use a metal trim. The strip of the knife should be clean from all sides: not to a metallic luster, but without the smallest adhering fragments.
Often, when hard objects such as stones and wood chips get into the work area, the blade is very noticeably deformed. Most blades themselves are not straight, but the cutting edge and strip 10-15 cm from it should be examined for the presence of local tubercles and curvatures. This is done with a short straight ruler.
You can straighten the blade with an ordinary hammer, whose edges of the striker are slightly rounded. The knife is laid on an even massive support (anvil), then, with weak strokes, the metal is given the correct shape. You need to edit the knife, starting from the edges of the curved section, gradually moving towards the center. The curved body of the blades is a small problem, but it is very important that the cutting parts are straightened into one straight fishing line. You also need to check the throwing blades, which often bend over from the impact. If the blades on different shoulders of the knife are bent at different angles, this will worsen the air flow and the mowed grass will not be properly mulched.

If the knife has not been sharpened for a long time, chipped chips are likely to appear on it. You need to get rid of them by removing the edge of the blade at a uniform angle along the entire length of the cutting section. Please note that there may be several edges on each side, in which case several cutting planes will form on the mower.
Lawn mower knives have one-sided sharpening, the descent of which, as a rule, is turned up. To bring the descent at the right angle, you should use an electric sharpener with a stone from carborundum, and in the absence of such. a small file. It is very important to remove metal evenly from both blades. Therefore, keep the same pressure and at least approximately count the number of passes of the sharpener.
Small deviations of the angle of sharpening are not critical, however, the more even the descents are brought out, the longer the knife will be. When deriving the shape of the blade, it always moves to the grain to avoid the formation of large burrs and gaps. Do not use an angle grinder for preliminary grinding. overheating can degrade the quality of the metal. However, it is possible to install a flap or disk disc under the emery paper on the angle grinder.
The purpose of sharpening itself is to eliminate small chips of the edge and to bring the descent into one straight plane. The presence of a “file” on the blade leads to a rapid decrease in sharpness, and with a rounded descent there is too much effect on the cut stems. In addition, a rounded-shaped blade becomes dirty much faster.
Sharpening the blade is best done with a flat emery bar with a grain size of about 400-600 grit; more “delicate” stones do not make much sense. Soak the bar in soapy water for 10-15 minutes and periodically moisten while turning. The knife is also sharpened for grain with a small broach of the bar from the center of the sharpened area to the edge.
When sharpening, try to adhere to the same position of the stone in order to maintain a constant angle. As with the removal of descents, sharpening should be carried out with the condition that the same amount of metal be removed on opposite blades. This condition, however, need not be strictly observed when sharpening four-blade knives.
When the blades are sharpened, they need to be fixed. This is done using a piece of moisture-resistant sandpaper with a grain size of about 600-800 grit. The paper should be moistened with water and rolled into a cylinder with a diameter of 100–150 mm.
Editing aims to remove the slightest burrs and flakes, due to which the thinnest edge of the blade can wrap. The emery paper rolled into the cylinder should be slightly pressed to the plane of descent and stretched in a smooth motion from the grain. It is also recommended to make a smooth shift from the center to the edges.
When removing descents and sharpening, all manipulations were carried out with only one side of the blade. In the process of dressing, the knife is also processed from the back. Here, the paper is pressed almost close to the body of the knife, but with a slight slope towards the edge. The effort of pressing the paper during editing is very small, but the movements need to be done quite a lot, trying to eliminate large scratches on the shiny descent that remained after sharpening.
For reference: You can also sharpen the lawnmower’s knife with a rivet, similar to a conventional manual scythe. True, this requires the presence of a special device. a headstock, as well as a specific skill. But then with this method of sharpening, it is not necessary to balance the knife.
Before installing the blade back, you need to make sure that its shoulders have at least about the same weight. Otherwise, vibration will occur during operation, which will not affect positively the spindle durability.
Balancing is carried out mainly for double-sided single and compound knives, four-blade is not so much prone to imbalance. To check the knife, you need to clamp a smooth bar in a vise in a horizontal position. A blade is put on it through the hole in the center, after which attempts are made to install it strictly horizontally. If one of the shoulders weighs significantly more than the other, the knife will steadily turn in one direction.
The equation for the weight of the shoulders is carried out by grinding a small amount of metal from the back of one of the shoulders of the knife. It is not necessary to achieve ultra-precise balancing, however, the knife must be held at least for a few seconds in a strictly horizontal position. When the balancing is done, you can put the knife in place and finally update the look of your lawn.
Today, one of the most popular and best companies that produce agricultural machinery is Stihl. A huge amount of products annually leaves the machine of this manufacturer, a feature which is a high level of quality and excellent performance.
Today in this article you can learn about the aspects and advantages of the products of this company, and we will also pay attention to the lawnmowers of this unsurpassed company. So, let’s actually begin to familiarize ourselves with this topic.
In the early twenties, stihl was born, whose head was the unrivaled engineer A. Stihl. In the first years of its activity, the company was engaged in the production of exclusively steam boilers and washing machines. But apparently this was not enough for the manufacturer, and equipment intended for agricultural work began to appear from his machines.
To date, this manufacturer is represented by a huge company, which consists of more than thirty enterprises located throughout the world.
The manufacturer began to manufacture their equipment, taking into account the fact that these products will serve consumers well, both for construction work and for gardening and household needs. And most importantly, what I would like to emphasize is that the tools of this brand are the best and most popular around the world.
Features of the products of this manufacturer
First of all, what I would like to emphasize is that all equipment of this manufacturer is easy to operate. In addition, it was created for work on sites. However, despite all the elementary use, this unit will not surpass an even simpler and more autonomous device such as the Stiga robotic lawnmower, more about it here.
The weight category of Stihl tools is quite diverse. over, each equipment has the functionality of work in absolutely any conditions. All devices have a hacksaw, which in turn has a sturdy motor crankcase made of shockproof plastic.
over, all professional models of this manufacturer have two filling tanks. The first of which performs oil filling in a specialized tank.
The main advantage in this matter can be considered that all Stihl products run on any kind of oil. Whether it’s motor, artificial, mineral or semi-synthetic oil, it doesn’t matter, as the manufacturer made his products in such a way that their technology allows such experiments.
But there is one nuance that every owner of Stihl equipment should not forget, namely that, despite the fact that any type of oil is suitable for these models, but not used motor oil. In no case can it be used in tools. Since this kind of negligence can lead to the failure of the device that delivers the amount of oil to lubricate the chain.
Watch this review video to better understand what is being discussed:
over, almost every lawn mower produced by the company has a push-pull engine, which also has different power depending on the type of tool and, naturally, its intended purpose. But, nevertheless, regardless of its power characteristics, it contributes to the force of unchanging properties during an impact with a tire.
The Stihl ms 180 chainsaw user manual will help you learn how to use the device correctly and correctly.
Photos of models of MTZ tractors that are in this article will help to consider each vehicle in detail.
Military TTX Kamaz 53501 is useful for transporting large loads. For more information, see here //machinspec.com/str/samosval/kamaz-53501.html.
Also important is the fact that Stihl appliances equipped with easy forced cooling, which is simply necessary after prolonged use of the device. Operation of the Stihl equipment can be carried out for a long time without long stops.

What kind of oil is to be added to the tiller or cultivator gearbox and frequency. Neva MB-2, Transmission oil TEP-15 (-5 ° С to 35 ° С) GOST 23652-79. Favorite (ZiD), Changing the oil in the engine gearbox and gearbox.
What can be done from the trimmer yourself to facilitate everyday work or for entertainment? Such a question arises if there is an old unnecessary device, or if a technician is required for work, which, when manufactured at the factory, is much more expensive than a gasoline or electric braid. In practice, craftsmen implemented many options. The main ones are a motorbike, a snow blower, an ice ax, devices for cultivating a land plot and mowing lawns, a saw, and snowmobile equipment. In order to bring the idea to life, in each case, you will need to use a certain set of tools and additional materials.
If there is a summer house or just a plot of land, then the cultivator will help to facilitate the cultivation of the soil. Traditionally, a chopper is used for these purposes, but working with it takes a lot of time and effort. Using a cultivator will reduce labor costs, and the whole process will take a shorter time period. Factory-made equipment is expensive, so with limited funds, the question arises of self-assembly of the cultivator. For this, both gas trimmers and electric braids are suitable.
To create the simplest model of technology, you should stock up on such tools and materials:
angle grinder with a set of discs (suitable diameter. 125 mm) for metal;
drill with drills of various diameters;
jigsaw or hacksaw for metal;
an emery machine with two abrasive wheels of different grain sizes;
functioning gas trimmer;
a steel tube suitable in diameter for the lawn-mowing shaft;
hand tools: wrenches, hammer, pliers, core, roulette and marker;
a sheet of metal with a thickness of 3 to 5 mm and a minimum size of 1010 cm.
Manufacturing process begin from the working part. For this purpose, curved rods of garden pitchfork will serve. Their recommended length is from 10 to 15 cm. this is enough to carry out loosening the soil.
The working nozzle is made in the following sequence:
flatten the teeth of the forks to a width of 1 cm;
on emery, using a circle with a small abrasive, grind milling cutters;
using a jigsaw, a circle with a diameter of 10 cm is cut from the metal;
process it on an emery machine to achieve an almost perfect shape;
at regular intervals, the prepared cutters are welded to the metal circle (recommended amount is 3).
With more than 3 pieces, the number of cutters, the load on the equipment greatly increases.
The recommended power of the gasoline engine should be two horsepower (approximately 1.5 kW) or more.
At the next stage, it is necessary to attach a mill for weeding on the trimmer. The process is greatly simplified when available reverse thread, located on the end of the shaft of the lawn mowers, on which the manufactured working part is simply wound. For this, a tube with a nut is pre-welded to the mill.
In the presence of locksmith experience and welder skills, it is quite simple to remake the trimmer into a cultivator. Financial costs are negligible. If an electric braid is used in the work, then you will need to think about an extension cord so that it reaches the entire processed area.
DIY lawn mower
The lawn mower facilitates the process of caring for decorative grassy plants, and also speeds up the work in the presence of large areas that need to be processed. There are many ready-made, easy-to-use models on the market for such equipment, but they are expensive, so they are not available to everyone. They also quickly fail in the presence of large weeds and stones on the site. Homemade products are much cheaper than factory counterparts, moreover, they are more practical in work.
The components of the design of the lawn mower are:
an engine (gasoline or electric), which is the basis of the created mechanism;
a frame designed to fix on it all the parts of the device;
casing for protection;
handles and wheels;
control unit of the created unit.
The recommended power of the engine used in the operation is from 0.5 kW (slightly less than 1 horsepower), and ideal. 1 kW or more.
Craftsmen have invented many different ways of converting a trimmer into a lawn mower. The simplest option is presented in the video:
Very common in practice wireframe option homemade device. Tools and materials for independent implementation of the project will be required the same as in the previous case. Plus still need:
a sheet of plywood (or metal 3-4 mm thick);
metal corner 25×25 mm;
2 m pipes of different diameters.
The manufacturing process is as follows:
a rectangular frame of 50×60 cm is welded from a corner;
in the corners set the wheels of the right size, which can be taken even from old toys;
on top of the frame, plywood cut to its size is fixed or metal is welded;
in the center of the cart make a hole for the trimmer bar and mounts for it;
make a knife or choose a suitable finished option;
then fix the lawn mowing on the trolley;
set the knife;
mount a casing at the back of the trolley to protect against the scattered grass flying in different directions;
begin to test the device.
Important! The diameter of the wheels is selected so that the knives do not reach the soil centimeters 5.
There are many ways to make knives, and their shape (design) is radically different. In this case, various materials and old tools are used (for example, an old saw on wood). The main principle is that the knives are well sharpened and balanced. this is necessary to prevent vibration of the equipment during operation.
It is often found that they do not use the old lawn mowing, but only the engine from the trimmer and its control unit. In this case, you will need to make handles for the trolley and fix all the structural details on the frame.
When assembling the mower and while working with it, be sure to adhere to safety precautions, to avoid injury. A bag can also be attached to the machine to collect mowed grass.
We make a motorbike
From an ordinary bicycle, home craftsmen managed to make a more practical vehicle. they rearranged the engine from the lawn mowers on it. At the same time, options are implemented with both a gasoline engine and an electric motor.
Video: What You Can Do From A Lawn Mower
Required Tools, Materials, and Parts
Electrical engine the bike is powered by a battery, which, depending on the power of the unit (it is taken 0.35-1.2 kW), lasts from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
For alteration of the bicycle are used two or four stroke gasoline engines. The latter option consumes less fuel and is not so noisy during operation. Recommended power is from 1.5 hp, and the best option is 2 hp. When using a motor with a lower parameter, the bike will barely ride or will not be able to move at all.
The rotational movement from a gas engine to a bicycle wheel occurs using belt or chain drive. Because of this, you will additionally need to do the following details:
metal suspension in the form of a frame with sides to fasten the motor to the bicycle frame;
driven and driving pulleys or sprockets for attachment to the engine and wheel, respectively.
Using a chain drive from a practical point of view is preferable to a belt one because the belt wears out faster, especially if it gets wet regularly.
To implement the project you will need to choose suitable gear. After installing the pulleys, choose the right belt size.
The dimensions of the frame for the engine depend on its size. The suspension itself to the frame of the motorbike is fixed:
The last option for strength is the best if the welder is good. If the design of the bicycle frame allows, then suspension replaced with a clamp, which fix the engine. This mounting option is more practical. The method of fixing the motor should be convenient, reliable and allow you to quickly remove it if necessary.
Doing all the work with your own hands in the presence of an old, functioning trimmer, a bicycle and a small set of tools will require time and patience from the performer.
Construction Assembly Sequence
In order to independently assemble a bike with a gasoline-powered engine, you will need, in addition to the materials and parts discussed, also:
cable for adjusting the operation of the motor;
welded exhaust pipe;
Assembling a motorbike is carried out according to this algorithm:
put an asterisk on the rear bicycle wheel;
the motor is fixed with a clamp (with an asterisk on the shaft) on the frame behind the seat or on the trunk, if the design features of the bicycle allow, otherwise it will be necessary to choose another convenient place for this purpose;
put the chain on the sprocket wheel and motor;
attach the tensioner;
adjust the chain tension;
fix the gas handle;
they pull a cable from it to the engine;
fasten the fuel tank;
Mount the carburetor.
For personal safety when operating a motorbike, they modernize the braking system, change tire covers to non-slip products, check the integrity and stability in movement of the created structure. After the entire structure is assembled, it is tested, having previously examined for imperfections.
Preference is given to disc brakes.
Homemade snow blower
There are a lot of options for creating snow removal equipment based on a trimmer. The easiest way to upgrade is to replace the knife with a rotor. Such a snow blower works like a shovel, but they just move it in the snow: the device rakes it and carries it to the side.
To implement the planned alteration, you will need such materials and tools:
a lawn mow with a direct boom, at the end of which a gearbox is installed;
a metal barrel, even a beer one, for example, from the Baltika drink;
a mill from a trimmer with many teeth (used to mow thick thickets of grass);
drill with drills;
angle grinder and welding machine.
Instead of a keg, you can use a thin sheet of metal (tin) with a thickness of 1.5 mm.
The assembly process of the snow blower is performed in the following sequence:
cut in a circle, departing from the bottom of 15 cm, the barrel;
make a hole for the lawn mowing gear in the bottom and drill 3 more small holes to fix its shield;
a side 10 x 10 cm square is cut out to throw snow through it;
a third of the open front of the barrel is covered with a piece of metal (tin), while the hole for the ejection should be located on the center line of the shutter;
make a rotor;
make a deflector that will direct the ejected snow in the right direction;
weld it to the body at the location of the hole for the release of snow mass;
fasten the bottom of the scapula;
install the lawn mowing gear and fasten with bolts;
They put the rotor like a simple working knife.
The deflector is done like this:
a strip is cut out of metal with a width of 15 cm and a length of 30 cm;
slightly bend the workpiece;
welded on the long sides of the sides 10 cm high so that snow does not scatter at the exit.
The rotor is made in the following sequence:
cut rectangular strips measuring 25 by 10 cm from the metal sheet;
cut and grind the plates in the form of blades;
they are welded with a cross to the lawn-mowing disc.
From the remnants of the material make a spatula. To do this, use a piece of tin 30 to 40 cm. The edges are bent along the long sides to form a two-centimeter rim.
Do-it-yourself snow removal mechanism should be used at full throttle. this will extend the life of the device, because frequent pressing of the gas leads to engine breakdown. It is difficult to connect thin metal by welding, because it easily burns through it. Therefore, the work must be performed by an experienced welder.
Scythe ice drill
Benzokosa can be converted into an ice drill. Factory analogues are quite complex and powerful devices. Structurally, the technique is a screw connected to the engine (in most cases two-stroke units are installed). Industrial devices are equipped automatic security systems, which turn off the ice drill in the event of a malfunction and exclude the possibility of an accidental start. The models also differ in the number of speeds: one- or two-speed.
For fans of winter fishing, buying a factory unit is unprofitable, and using a hand-held device with a large thickness of ice is hard to work with. It will help to save energy and money by remaking the old trimmer into an ice drill.
In addition to the brushcutter, you will need a drill (factory or homemade) and tools for assembling the final structure. The difficulty lies in attaching the working part to the trimmer. Much depends on the current model of lawn mowers.
The following videos show how an ice drill made from a trimmer works:
The last video contains a possible attachment of the drill to the brushcutter.
Compared to industrial counterparts, a homemade ice drill is low power device, but for drilling holes is enough with the head. Also, the device weighs little, which makes it easy to transport.
Other homemade options
Thanks to an economical and reliable engine, the trimmer is the basis for many other homemade products. Below we briefly describe the possible options and provide video instructions for their implementation.
Converting a trimmer into a chainsaw
Gasoline lawn mowers can also make a chainsaw. To translate the rationalization idea into reality will need old device models. All items will be taken from them. The video below presents the result.
Converting the trimmer into a gas saw is to install this part from the lawn mowers instead of its own engine.
Making a snowmobile for kids
The trimmer can also be converted into a snowmobile. The process is to install the engine on a structure equipped with skis. Due to the insufficient power of the motors available on the lawn mowers, the created independent technique is capable of transporting only a relatively small weight. She also moves on a relatively flat terrain. Such homemade work will serve as an interesting and useful toy for children.
The snowmobile is driven by a screw or chain drive.
The videos below show some possible options for home-made equipment:
Home craftsmen have come up with many different ways to adapt the motor from a trimmer to a snowmobile. Here, the limitations are related to personal imagination and the existing list of unnecessary devices and equipment that can be used to create homemade snowmobiles.
lawn mowers can be converted into a motor drill, which will also be used as an ice drill if necessary. As a result, construction work will accelerate and require less labor. They make recesses under the posts of fences, the foundation of piles and for the erection of other structures with a motor-drill.
Redo for this purpose, both electric and gas trimmers.
In addition to the bicycle, the lawn mowing engine is also mounted on a scooter. The assembly principle is similar to creating a motorbike, only in this case the design features of the scooter are taken into account.
The video below shows airplane, whose motor is taken from a gasoline spit.
Having at your disposal an old working and unnecessary trimmer, you can make various technical devices with your own hands, not only discussed above. Own imagination will tell you different options. But, when creating any device, you should remember that it would be safe for people around and using it.
For those people who have a summer house or a country house, very often difficulties arise with overgrown grass on the site. As a rule, several times a season it is necessary to mow it and get rid of thickets. Currently, the market offers a wide selection of equipment for the garden. One of such assistants can be attributed to a brushcutter, in other words. a trimmer. For effective and long-term operation of such equipment, it is necessary to refuel it with high-quality fuel or correctly prepared fuel mixtures.
What gasoline can be poured into the trimmer?
Before determining which gasoline can be poured into the trimmer, It is necessary to define some of the concepts used.
Trimmers can be with four-stroke or two-stroke engines. Four-stroke trimmers are the most powerful and complex in design, the lubrication of parts of its engine is carried out by an oil pump. The engine runs on clean gasoline. For push-pull units. simpler ones. it is necessary to prepare a fuel mixture consisting of gasoline and oil. That’s due to the amount of oil that is in the fuel, and friction parts are lubricated in the cylinder of this engine.
To prepare the mixture, gasoline of a certain brand AI-95 or AI-92 is needed. The brand of gasoline depends on its ignition rate. the octane rating. The lower this indicator, the faster gasoline burns and its greater consumption.
Many models of petrol scythes have two-stroke engines, working mainly on AI-92 gasoline. Fuel for them must be mixed independently. It is better to pour gasoline of the brand that is specified for it by the manufacturer into the lawn mower, otherwise the trimmer will fail more quickly. For example, with AI-95 gasoline, the engine will quickly overheat, and when choosing AI-80, the fuel mixture will be of very low quality, so the engine will be unstable and with low power.
In addition to choosing a brand of gasoline, when preparing the fuel mixture for lawn mowers, you need to use a special oil designed specifically for two-stroke engines. Semi-synthetic and synthetic oils are well suited for benzokos. Semi-synthetic oils are in the average price range, suitable for such equipment from any manufacturer, well lubricate the necessary elements of the motor. Synthetic oils are more expensive, but when they are used, the engine will last longer. In any case, when buying equipment, you should carefully read the instructions, as sometimes the manufacturer gives recommendations on the use of specific brands of oil.
If you purchase Russian-made oil, then it must be labeled. 2T. For the long service life of your equipment and its good condition, you never need to use oils of unknown production.
The proportion of the fuel mixture
If the mixture is diluted correctly, for example, following the instructions below, then the equipment will last you more than one year without serious technical breakdowns. At the same time, fuel consumption will be low, and the result of work will be high. The fuel preparation process should always be the same and constant. It is better to always use the same ingredients without changing the brand specified by the manufacturer.
Video: How to Dilute Gasoline For a Lawn Mower
Do not add a lot of oil, this can damage the engine, but you should not save on it either. To maintain the correct proportions, always use the same measuring container so as not to be mistaken with the quantity. You can use medical syringes to measure the oil, but some manufacturers, along with the oil, provide in the kit a measuring container with risks.
The most correct ratio of oil to gasoline is considered to be 1 to 50, where 50 is the amount of gasoline, and the amount of oil is 1. For a better understanding, we explain that 1 liter is equal to 1000 ml. So, to get a ratio of 1 to 50, we divide 1000 ml by 50, we get 20 ml. As a result, you need to add only 20 milliliters of oil to 1 liter of gasoline. To dilute 5 liters of gasoline, you will need 100 ml of oil.
In addition to observing the correct proportion, it is necessary to observe the technology of mixing the ingredients. In no case can you just add oil to the gas tank. It is better to follow the following step-by-step instructions.
To dilute the mixture, it is necessary to prepare containers in advance in which you will mix gasoline and oil. This can be a clean metal or plastic canister with volumes of 3, 5 or 10 liters, to make it easier to calculate the amount of oil. Do not use drinking water bottles for this purpose. they are made of thin plastic, which can dissolve from gasoline. Use a special measuring container to measure the oil. But if there is none, then, as already noted, high-dose medical syringes are suitable.
Pour gasoline into the canister without adding a couple of centimeters to the full volume. In order not to spill gasoline, take a watering can or insert a funnel into the neck of the canister. Then, in the syringe or in the measuring device, draw the right amount of oil and pour into a container with gasoline. It is not recommended to do the opposite. pour gasoline into the oil.
Close the lid tightly with a bottle and stir the resulting mixture. If during the preparation of the mixture or its mixing a part of the fuel spills out, it is necessary to immediately wipe the canister with a dry rag.
Be sure to observe fire safety measures. Dilute the mixture away from fire and in no case do not leave leftovers of fuel and used materials out of the reach of children.
And one more important point: it is better to cook the mixture exactly the amount that fits in the fuel tank of your lawn mowers. It is undesirable to leave the remains of the mixture.
Features of refueling lawn mowers
When the mixture is prepared and ready for use, it must be carefully poured into the fuel tank. Since gasoline is a toxic liquid, safety precautions must be observed when working with it. Work must be carried out in calm weather and away from strangers. And also for pouring fuel into the tank you need to use a watering can or funnel, with which you previously diluted the mixture. Otherwise, the mixture may spill, go unnoticed, and ignite when the engine is heated.
The fuel bank itself must be cleaned of external contaminants and only then unscrew its cover in order to refuel with the prepared fuel. After the fuel has been filled in, the tank should not be left open, as insects or earth can get into it, as a result of which the fuel filter will clog. Pour fuel into the tank to the specified mark or less, and then top up during operation.
As noted above, you should not prepare the mixture more than necessary for work, it is better to cook less and, if necessary, repeat the process, mixing gasoline with oil again. If you still have unused fuel, then you must use it for 2 weeks.
During storage, the container must be tightly closed with a lid. Fuel must be stored in a cool room, in a place where the sun does not penetrate. It is worth remembering that with prolonged storage of the mixture, the oil liquefies and loses its properties.
Whatever brand your equipment is, it requires respect and quality fuel. If you follow all the recommendations and use fuel economically, your brushcutter will serve you for more than one season, and the land will always be in perfect order, without weeds and dense thickets of grass.
A lawn mower is a wonderful alternative to a manual scythe, which facilitates and accelerates the mowing of grass in a variety of places, including those where an ordinary scythe simply does not turn around. But behind the comfort and convenience is a sophisticated modern mechanism that requires constant attention and regular maintenance.
Regardless of the manufacturer, all units have a similar design. Therefore, repairing a Viking do-it-yourself mower is done similarly to repairing other brands: Husqvarna, Calm, Bosch, Gardena, Oleo Mac. A self-made lawn mower will not be an exception, but repairing a breakdown requires basic knowledge. Consider the most common causes of engine failure, and do-it-yourself lawn mower repair in the field.
Types of Lawn Mowers
The traditional "pusher" technique has long received knife drives from electric motors, which greatly facilitated the process. This type is still very popular, especially among those who want to get a beautiful lawn, but nothing compares with the relative novelty of the domestic market. rotary mowers that easily cut even the tallest grass.
Rotary type mowers are powered only from mains, and cylindrical mowers. both from the mains and from the batteries.
Both types are represented by different modifications. Gas mowers will not be considered separately, but the proposed options for eliminating breakdowns are identical in most cases. You should always have an operating manual on hand or seek advice from professionals if problems arise in the care or use.
They include spiral knives, the combination of which resembles a cylinder. A large toothed pulley located at one end drives the belt (in some cases, a chain), on the other hand, is worn on a second, small pulley attached to the motor shaft. The engine can also set in motion a skating rink that moves equipment on the ground.
Composed of the following elements:
Emergency shutdown and safety lock button.
Air intake grille.
Knife clearance adjuster.
Large toothed pulley.
Height adjusting lever.
When the cylinder rotates, the knives press the grass to a fixed knife attached under the cylinder, thereby creating a cutting effect that resembles the principle of operation of scissors. Any damage, even the slightest, wear, improper fastening of the knives makes the operation of the equipment less efficient. The grass cutting height changes after adjusting the position of the roller or wheels located in the front or rear of the knife cylinder.
They have one knife horizontally fixed to the motor shaft. Rotations at high speed make it possible to cut off both grass and other plants. Some models have rims with replaceable plastic knives. they are easy to replace if necessary.
Individual mowers have wheels, but most models move on air cushions. Here, the engine rotates the impeller, which distills the air masses under the hood. creating a lifting force. A metal knife is placed under the impeller.
Rotary type mower made up of:
Emergency stop and lock buttons.
Drive shaft (engine).
Clamping nut of the knife.
Air intake grille.
If we talk about mowers on airbags, in them distance washers are installed above the knife, regulating the height of mowing grass.
Video: Bosch Lawn Mower Belt Replacement
As an alternative, you can simply flip the blade with plastic knives to increase or decrease the cutting height.
In all types of equipment there may be containers for collecting grass scraps.
Some gardeners prefer one that cuts the grass as finely as possible and leaves the trim on the lawn as mulch.
The value of emergency switches
All modern lawn mowers have security systems that will not allow you to start work if both handles are not simultaneously involved or the combination of the shutdown lever with a safety lock button. The switch trips as soon as the lever is lowered.
When working with electrical engineering, you must take care of your own safety. Refuse to use equipment if you are very tired and cannot be attentive. Before plugging in the power outlet, check the condition of the power cord, make sure that all protective devices, knives and fasteners are securely locked. Unwind the cord completely, put the excess near you along the edge of the lawn from which you will start.
Before work, check to see if there are any small objects (pebbles, bones) on the green area that could ruin the knives or be thrown back by the same knives with great force. Hold the cord on your shoulder, grab the handle with both hands. In the process, make sure that the cord is always behind. Before adjusting the cutting height, the equipment must be disconnected from the mains.
After completing work, pull the plug from the outlet, remove the rest of the grass from the knives and the air intake grille. Wipe the case with a dry cloth. With a plastic or wood spatula, remove the mulch from the bottom of the mower near the air cushion. At the end of the season, thoroughly clean the lawnmower again, rub the knife with an oil rag. Remember to grease bearings and adjusters. Also check the condition of the power cord: if it is badly worn, order a replacement to be ready for the start of next season.
All electric lawn mowers are designed the same way. They have a platform for mounting a motor whose shaft is parallel to the ground. A knife (or two) is fixed to the shaft of the electrical device, with which weeds are mowed. For mowing to be of high quality, the speed of the cutting electric tool must be high.
For convenience, the platform itself is equipped with four wheels and a handle with engine control elements fixed to it. It is designed to push the device forward and control the electric mower.
Wheel mounting can be rigid and swivel. In the first case, you will have to lift two wheels on turns. Swivels involve the use of less physical force.
In addition, they “spoil” the lawn less. Therefore, if flowers are planted on a lawn, there are swings, arbors, etc., then it is recommended to use swivel wheels. Electric lawn mowers with such wheels are convenient for caring for areas under shrubs and trees.
The engine is enclosed by a housing that at the same time protects an operator working with an electric lawn mower from accidental injuries. The material used for its manufacture is more often plastic and less commonly metal. As you can see, the electric lawnmower device is quite simple.
The most common breakdowns
Any technique sooner or later fails. It is important to know how you can repair mowers, because far from all cases you need to contact a service center.
Mower does not cut grass
In most cases, dull or severely damaged knives become the cause.. To achieve the best results, just change the knife every year. Choose a knife that suits your model. When the knife is dull, you can grind it using an electric grinder or a file. When sharpening, be sure to use safety glasses and gloves. The sharpening angle on both sides is approximately 30 degrees.
In cylindrical mowers, the clearance between the knife and cylinder should be less than the thickness of the paper. Some of the most modern models have built-in knurled controls. In other cases, you will have to use keys and screwdrivers to make the necessary adjustments. Make sure the clearance is even along the entire length of the cylinder. To check the adjustment, insert a sheet of paper between the cylinder and the knife, slowly rotating the drum by hand. Gradually adjust on both sides until the paper begins to cut cleanly at every point on the fixed knife.
The mower is difficult to move
When the mower is difficult to move around the lawn, you may be trying to remove too high grass and you will have to adjust the mowing level. When jamming rollers or wheels, they need to be inspected to make sure that there are no clippings of grass and debris. Most likely, they must be removed and cleaned.
If interference with air intake has formed, the lift will decrease on the mower’s air cushion and make it difficult to move. Lack of air causes the engine to overheat. Turn off the power and remove any remaining grass from the intake grilles.
The technique does not turn on at all
Long and wet grass can easily block knives. Remove the plug from the power supply and use a wooden object to rotate the cylinder to the other side of the knife until the movement becomes free. For gas mowers this technique cannot be used.
The belt for the operation of cylindrical lawn mowers wears out, stretches and may break. Remove the belt cover and check if there is a break or the belt just pops off. Loosen the fastening screws and slide the small drive pulley to the large cylinder pulley. Put the new belt on the small pulley and slowly rotate the large one, gradually putting the belt on it. Move the pulley to the side to tighten the belt, then tighten the screws.
Before installing the cover, be sure to check the belt tension. the degree of deflection should not exceed 4 mm (the indicator may fluctuate slightly depending on the model, detailed information is contained in the user manual).
Break in the cord
Each time you use, you unwrap, move and fold the cord. This can lead to a break in the internal conductors. On many models, the cord connects to the screw terminals, which makes it possible to quickly check and replace it. If double insulated, connect a two-core cord.
Other models use clamping contacts to facilitate replacement. Turn off the power, separate the plastic cover. When unscrewing the clamping strip, pay attention to the connection of the cord to the switch to observe the polarity of the connection (color of wires).
To disconnect the cord, insert a hex wrench into each of the holes in which the conductors are located. to release the clamp and conductor. Check where the gap has formed.
If necessary, connect a new cord: twist together all the individual wiring of each core, then insert the twisted ends into the appropriate terminals. Pull lightly to check connection. Then reinstall the clamping plate, cord sleeve and switch cover.
