How to Use Your Lawn Mower in a Safe Manner 

Find More Information on the Mower 

While your small engine is not as powerful as a regular vehicle, it’s still a complex machine, which is why you should find out more information about your riding lawn mower. To that end, it’s strongly recommended that you read your owner’s manual thoroughly, so you can learn how it works, how to keep it safe, and more. 

Call Oilrich at (203) 592-7113 if you require guidance on the best products to keep your small engine in top shape. 

Ride It With Common Sense 

Something you should never forget when riding your lawn mower, is your common sense. This means you shouldn’t ride it while under the influence or with children nearby. Also, don’t perform stunts while on it, don’t leave it on and unattended, and generally, don’t be careless with your lawn mower, as it can cause some serious damage. 

Keep Up With Its Maintenance 

Much like the vehicle you drive around, your lawn mower requires regular maintenance to guarantee it’s in top working shape for longer (and to keep you safe). For that reason, it’s suggested that you follow the owner’s manual’s tips. Moreover, you should take it to a professional mechanic who can assess its condition and fine-tune it perfectly.

Don the Right Apparel When Riding 

The clothing you wear while riding your lawn mower can have an impact in how safe you are. For instance, long or loose clothes could get caught in the mower’s mechanisms. Flip flops or heels could hinder your driving ability. Wear comfortable, tighter clothes, and sturdy, closed-toe shoes, to avoid a mishap while you’re mowing. 

Keep Children and Pets Safe 

As stated, the lawn mower, while a smaller engine, is a complex and potentially dangerous machine. To make sure no one will be harmed by it, you need to keep children and pets safe and away from it when working on the lawn. Needless to say, you also shouldn’t let them ride the lawn mower, as you could put their well-being in peril.

Inspect the Area You’ll Be Mowing 

To remain safe, you should inspect the area you’ll be going over with your lawn mower before you begin. This inspection round will help you notice and remove any big rocks, twigs, or other objects that could get caught in the machinery and/or that could get thrown out violently. This way, those items will not get stuck in the mechanism. 

Remove Stuck Items With Extreme Caution 

Speaking of stuck items, if something were to get stuck, you should remove it with extreme caution. It’s crucial that you first turn the lawn mower off before reaching for the object, as you could get badly injured. Then, use tools to remove it without coming into contact with the extremely sharp blades in your lawn mower. If needed, ask your mechanic for help with this issue.
