In mowing your lawn, you have to start from the lawn’s corner and the mower should be two inches over the lawn’s grass.

Step 2:

Continue the process while the speed is increasing and then eventually the trimmer’s blade will start working on the grass. But don’t let go of the throttle even when the cutting of the grass is already working efficiently. Keep a firm hand on the handle of the land mower so that you will be able to maneuver it with firm easiness.

Step 3:

If you want a much better-cutting result, you can adjust the blade to 6 inches. Position the trimmer in an angle wherein the blade edge can easily trim down the grass to be mowed. This way, the mower won’t hit hard surfaces, like the stones, bricks or cement that might be present in the lawn. This will prevent the blade from getting damaged easily. Again, you have to get your hand firm on the mower’s handle. This way, you can easily maneuver through your bushy lawn.

Step 4:

Maneuver the mower from side to side with its head in parallel position to the ground. This enables you to work your way all throughout the lawn until the grass is evenly trimmed. Make sure that you have the lawn systematically mowed for it will be such an inconvenience going back to the spot where you missed out something.

Once you are sure the whole lawn is already well trimmed, you can now turn the mower off and set it aside. Let it cool for a while. Check the fuel tank, the bolts, and other parts again. If there is much fuel inside the fuel tank and you think that it will take quite a while before you can next mow your lawn, it is better to take the fuel off the tank and have it cleaned thoroughly.

It might cause some irregularities having fuel stored up in the tank for quite some time. Make sure that nothing is damaged. If everything checks, you can start cleaning up the mower thoroughly in all sides and corners with a cloth and place it in its storage area. Also, make sure that all the wires are rolled up and in place.
