Proper operation of a trimmer for grass for grass

In every summer village, village, suburb and in the city itself you can see these devices: they work tirelessly, aligning the lawn grass, cleansing the space of squares and parks, gardens and gardens from thickets of burdock, wormwood and weeds. The noise and crackle from the trimmers are heard from the beginning of summer to autumn, until the growth of the grass is so much so that it will no longer need to trim it. Automatic braid for grass deserved its popularity for the simplicity of the device and operation. It is easy for her to use, it is easy to care for, and in case of breakdown it is not possible to easily fix it without difficulty. The article will just tell you how to use a trimmer for grass correctly.

As with any other technique, in working with the trimmer there are rules. First you need to make sure that the main nodes and assemblies: screw, rods, handles and motor. If the device has not yet been assembled, then it should be correctly assembled according to the instructions.

Gasoline unit

In the case of a gasoline trimmer, it is necessary to check the gearbox for lubrication. Also, do not forget to add lubricants to the fuel tank, if the instruction manual is evidenced. As a rule, gas and oil are mixed in a ratio of 45 to 1, but these indicators may vary depending on the model and manufacturer, so you should carefully study all the technical requirements for the device. The fuel container must be filled on the very neck. If all technical fluids are flooded, then you can try to start the device. But it’s not worth mowing right away, it will be better to let the trimmer work without load so that the engine works to the flooded fuel. A few minutes will be enough, after which you can give the motorcycle full load.

Mowing: The best organic weed prevention.


With an electric trimmer, everything is much easier. Having made sure that the gearbox has the required amount of lithol, you can start work. No additional measures are required. Unless it is necessary to make sure that the carrying does not run on the path of mowing in order to avoid possible damage.

When the device itself is ready to work, you should make sure that there is nothing around that could interfere with the work. If possible, the estimated mowing area should be cleaned of snags, glass, stones and other solid objects that can damage a knife or fishing line for a trimmer.

It is better if other people do not approach the trimmer while working. Usually the recommended distance is at least 10-15 meters in order to avoid small debris (mulch) in the eye and on the face.

Depending on the upcoming work, you need to choose a nozzle for a trimmer for the grass: a screw-knife for weeds and hay, a fishing line for a trimmer for lawn grass or a disk saw for shrubs. Mowing should be in the opposite direction from people, if possible, moving away from buildings and buildings. You should not get too close to the fence and other designs, since the fishing line for a trimmer can catch on sharp edges, and the screw-knife will bend if it accidentally offends it a hard object.

The preparation of the device itself will not take much time, all modern models of devices are designed to facilitate and simplify their operation, starting to work in the shortest possible time.

We run up a gasoline trimmer for grass

Most often, the is used in a motorcycle (trimmer for gasoline grass). The is the operation of the engine at low speeds, without loads. To run, it is necessary to start a motorcycle and let it work at idle. It is best to produce the first mowing with a fishing line, since when mowing lawn grass is a less high load on the engine than when working with hay or shrubs.

The load must be increased gradually, in stages increasing engine speed. If you start operating with high speeds, the engine can be poorly developed, which will affect the entire further operation of motorcycles.

Do not produce the entire temporary resource during the first engine start. It will be best after working at idle by idle for 10-15 minutes to mow, then drown out the device and let it cool a little. Use a motorcycle system carefully, without sudden movements, in order to avoid collisions with solid objects (stones). The stab on the stone can poorly affect the work of the unfortunate nodes. In some cases, backlash, noise and hum during operation appear. This can be easily avoided if the trimmer for the grass is correctly running.

Gasoline braid device device

The weight of the entire device is about 8 kg, which is quite difficult to hold on the hands. Therefore, the unloading belt-rug belt with a protective pad and regulators is included with the scope of the scythe.

The grass braid is designed for mowing grass and small shrub in personal plots.

As you know, grass can be mowed in different ways. folding it in rolls or simply rolling it out. In addition, the grass is different. soft or rough, with thick stems, shrub.

Types and arrangement of trimmers

Depending on the energy source for the engine, the trimmers for grass are divided into gasoline and electric. The first type is equipped with a tank for fuel and lubrication, the second works from the mains or battery.

The design of a gasoline trimmer for grass

All elements of the device are attached on a long metal rod. At its upper end there is a gas for gasoline, an internal combustion engine and a starter to start it. At the lower end is a spindle that spins counterclockwise. A coil with a fishing line or sharp knives (wheels with teeth) of steel or plastic sits on it. Inside the bar, which is a half pipe, is a hard or flexible shaft, through which rotation from the engine to a working tool is transmitted.

On a note! If the rod is straight, a hard shaft is used, which is connected to the gearbox located above the spindle, and passes it to the torque from the drive. If the rod is curved, the gearbox is absent, and the shaft is used flexible.

In the middle of the bar there is a holder pen, which is a D-shaped or bifurcated, similar to a bicycle steering wheel. Asymmetric folding handles are very convenient (like a motorcycle company Husqarna). The trimmer buttons and control levers are located on the handle or rod. Engine, control elements and coil/disk are connected using a flexible cable. Rods are whole, collapsible and telescopic. The length of the last two types can be changed to set up to the growth of a particular person. Some models have mounts for waist belts. A disk or reel (bobbin) is covered with a shield to protect a person who mows grass.

Cutting tool-a coil, inside which a fishing line for a trimmer (cord, string) with a diameter of 2-3 mm is wound. In some models, a fishing line for a trimmer is wound with a margin, and with a light blow to a solid surface, it automatically moves out of a bobbin. In other trimmers, a segment of the cord is inserted into the coil, and the excess length is cut off on the acute edge of the casing.

In addition to fishing line, a standard set of some motorcycles includes a disk with sharp gear edges. The shape of the teeth can be different. For cutting branches and bushes, they use a nozzle-knife or cutter similar to a disc for a circular saw.

On a note! For some models of trimmers, you can buy other nozzles: brush, chain saw, cultivator for soil.

Basmer’s gasoline management

On the drive is a rotary regulator that pushes or covers the air damper. They are used to run the engine faster, for example, to warm it when it is cold outside. Other regulators are located on the holder or rod of the device:

weeds, motorcycle, lawn, haircut
  • Gas trigger. controls the carburetor damper to change the amount of fuel entering the drive;
  • button “stop”. designed to break the ignition circuit, stops the engine;
  • button to prevent uncontinished pressing on the gas trigger. is under the button;
  • Stop for fixing the gas trigger. without it, with long work, the motor.skim lever will have to constantly hold a finger.

The design of an electric trimmer for grass

In general terms, electrimmers look like lawn mowers: a motor, a handle, a cutting element are attached to the bar.

On a note! The electric motor of the trimmer for the grass can be located on top, at the end of the bar, or from below, above the casing of the cutting mechanism. In the second case, there is no gearbox.

The network device needs to be included in the outlet, so for kosba in large areas you will need an extension cord. Whereas the radius of the battery electrocos does not depend on the length of the wire, but the batteries must be charged and changed in time.

Instead of the starter, the power button on/off is used in electrimmers. On them, unlike gasoline analogues, it is impossible to adjust the number of rotation of the spindle rotation, so the control buttons on the device are much less.

On a note! Trimmers of both types of mowing width with a fishing line 22-42 cm. And when using disks or knives, this indicator is directly related to the diameter of the nozzle.

How to fix the nozzle correctly

Before using the Elitech lawmaker, you should familiarize yourself with the methods of fixing the cutting nozzle. When installing a coil or disk, there will be no special problems. The disk is set as follows:

  • First, a lining washer should be installed.
  • Then a disk is mounted on the shaft.
  • After that, the upper washer is installed. For its screwing, the fastener is used. To rotate the nut, you need a end key. This tool should be included in the set of delivery.

The nut needs to be rotated counterclockwise. When rotation, you need to take care of fixing the shaft with a player key.

If you need to replace the disk, for its dismantling it is necessary to adhere to the same algorithm, but in the reverse order.

The installation of a coil with a fishing line is noticeably easier. it immediately wraps up on the output shaft. In some cases, it may require installation of a lining washer. Information about this can be found in the instructions for a specific tool model.

How to refuel a lawn mower

Before starting the operation of the lawn mower, you should take care of its refueling. Fuel for this technique is gasoline. over, for the operation of 2-stroke engines, you will need to prepare a mixture of gasoline and oil. But 4-stroke engines operate exclusively on clean gasoline. This is due to the fact that in 4-stroke engines there is an oil crankcase. To prepare the fuel mixture, it is necessary to use AI-92 gasoline.

The use of AI-95 gasoline is undesirable, since its higher “octane number” has no advantage when used in a 2-stroke engine, and higher additives (compared to AI-92) leads to the acceleration of the appearance of soot. In order not to make a mistake with the choice of fuel, before the first use of the lawn mower, it is recommended to carefully read the manufacturer’s instructions.

For refueling, gasoline and oil should be mixed in a proportion from 1:50 to 1:40 Depending on the brand of the used oil (the proportion is indicated on its packaging). A one liter of gasoline will take from 20 to 25 ml of oil. In some models, the proportion may be different. Therefore, you always need to first familiarize yourself with the instructions of the manufacturer of a particular model.

Mulching function in a lawn mower

Different ways of improving soil fertility are used to care for the beds and lawns. Mulching is a necessary event for recovery of lawns, as well as prevent soil erosion. As a mulch, mowed grass has proven itself well. It is periodically recommended to mow grass and prepare compost from it, which is used in the winter as organic fertilizer of the lawn.

There are wheel units on sale, in which the mulching function is already built. With the help of this additional opportunity, during a haircut, the lawn mower is mulching grass and uncleaned fallen leaves: the process consists in grinding and accurate release of organics into the trimmed part of the lawn. The advantage of such models is obvious: the lawn is cleaned of plant debris, which in a redesigned form returns to the surface of the soil and enriches it. But the cost of a lawn mower with additional capabilities will be higher than the usual model.

Problems in the operation of lawn mowers

Like any garden inventory used in Garden and Harden inventory, a wheelbarrow for cutting lawns requires compliance with the rules of safe use. You can operate motorized equipment only in good condition. this is an unshakable requirement. And before turning on an electric or gasoline unit, you must definitely make sure its integrity. When carrying out work, it is necessary to comply with the general safety rules and the requirements of the instructions from the manufacturer.

There are five main problems in the process of using the lawn mower:

  • collision with an obstacle;
  • flowing oil;
  • knives are clogged with grass;
  • The unit rakes the ground along with the grass;
  • Uneven cutting.

All problems are solved to one degree or another. In the first two situations, most likely, you will have to seek help from specialists. And for the prevention of such problems, it is recommended to check the site before cutting for stones and other items in the grass of the lawn, and also not put the device in an inverted form.

Young soft and juicy grass can clog a hole for its release, and then an unstable, torn work of the motor is observed. In this case, it is necessary to periodically stop the work to clean the holes from sticking herbal segments using a thin acute tool.

Когда косилка мощно загребает не только стебли травы, но и комья земли, исправить ситуацию поможет перенастройка высоты среза так, чтобы нож не доставал грунта. If the unit with a normally working motor cuts the grass with uneven stripes, shreds, then the problem with the knife: either dull or installed not entirely correctly.

To clarify the correct location of the cutting tool will help appeal to the manufacturer’s instructions. It is better to entrust a knife sharpening to a specialist.

When working with a lawn mower, do not forget to use personal protective equipment. Check the working inventory regularly to identify defects in time and solve the problem before a serious breakdown.

Tall grass mowing using fishing line

For thick stems of grass (weeds), a more powerful trimmer for grass with thick fishing line is used. However, in areas where large weeds grow, the soil is often uneven. Catching up for clods of the earth, the engine of the trimmer for the grass will sharply brake. By abusing this, you can easily damage the engine. Sowing the upper tier, you will see where the grass reaches the greatest length. in deeper places. Focusing on such “height changes”, you equal the “haircut” of the lawn, bringing it closer to the ideal.

The mowed grass is suitable both on hay and on the top dressing of the lawn. At the same time, the course of mowing grass is easier to plan, and the process will go faster.

Tips for the muzzle of high herbal are in the following.

  • The engine should not overload.
  • When the fishing line is confused on uneven ground or in high grass, immediately turn off the motor.
  • When using gasoline or diesel as an energy carrier, you cannot mow wet grass.
  • You need to move the trimmer for the grass right in front of you and left, t. to. Small grass falls on the previously processed sector. Thus, the upper tier of the grass is cut off. The lower layers are captured when you have already gone in the opposite direction.
  • If the processed area is very large, mow one conditional zone after another, to which you divided the territory before work.
  • Move precisely on the outside, so as not to trample the mowed grass, making your result inconspicuous.
  • Moving lines should be located parallel to each other. This will easily circumvent the trees found on the site, while overload of the motor is excluded.

Subject to these recommendations, the grass will not fly to the sides during operation, and the process itself will simplify and accelerate several times.

Safety precautions during work

Safety precautions when working with motorcycles are to fulfill the following requirements.

weeds, motorcycle, lawn, haircut
  • Do not use trimmers in the rain or with increased humidity.
  • People and animals should be at a distance of at least 15 m from the working device: trimming of grass, small garbage and stones fly out from under the cutting head at high speed and may injure.
  • It is better to put on the grass trimmer to a dense fabric that completely closes the arms and legs.
  • You need to work in protective glasses, gloves, headdress, closed shoes, special headphones or Berushas.
  • The wire of the network trimmer for the grass should be behind the mower.

Important! You can’t stretch your hand or foot to the cutting head!

So, the use of manual vehicles for mowing grass allows you to maintain order on a small area. It is more convenient to use a mower in vast areas. In addition, a trimmer for grass is relevant when harvesting hay and restoring order in the territory: small herbal scraps can be mulched strawberries and other useful plants. You can clearly see the mowing process with this tool on the video.

Protective equipment when working with a motorcycle (trimmer)

Tip: This article does not replace the instructions given in the guide for the use and safety precautions. Always read the product management before use and observe safety precautions.

For safe work with a motorcycle (trimmer) you will need:

  • Helmet;
  • Headphones;
  • Eye protection (mesh shield or glasses, but it is better to use both);
  • Long durable pants (the legs are in the immediate vicinity of the knife or fishing line, so they must be protected);
  • Shoes with a non.slip sole (preferably with a steel nose);
  • Soft gloves (to protect and absorb vibration);

Knives for motorcycles (trimmer for grass)

When working with a motorcycle we can use a fishing line for a trimmer. However, a real advantage (in addition to high engine power) is the ability to equip metal knives.

Various types of knives for trimmers are designed to cut different types of vegetation:

  • A knife with 8 or less teeth: grass and weeds;
  • A knife with 9-40 teeth: thick weeds and shrubs;
  • Knives-saws with more than 40 teeth: small trees and young seedlings;

When replacing a knife, be sure to use gloves.

Each knife indicates the size (diameter) of the landing hole in the center. This is usually 2.5 cm, but cases are different. Therefore, look in the operating manual, what size on your trimmer.

Even relief

Visually, the lawn is broken in the crook area. Cut the grass from the perimeter of one zone, then the work continues on a tapering spiral clockwise. So they clean the weeds. Then move to the next zone. Small grass remains on top of the ground on the left.

To remove weeds under the root, the cutting part is kept at an angle of 30 degrees. The tip of the fishing line almost applies to the ground. Here you need dexterity, but the grass is removed to the bare earth.


Equipment is needed when processing the edges of the paths, lawns and flower beds. To achieve an ideal result, a groove is digging up to 4 cm deep along the mowing line. The fishing line for the trimmer cuts grass below the level of the soil without touching the surface.

If the site is needed precisely cutting, it is profitable to buy an ethletric trimmer for grass with a lower engine. The cutting plane is placed vertically, the haircut is clean, without errors.

Group of slopes

Get up so that the top of the slope is on the right, process with the removal of grass to the left. After the bevel of one strip, they return to the starting point, pass the next strip, etc.D.

Circle of shrubs and large trees

In the garden or on a site with an overgrown fruit shrub, a trimmer for grass is the only convenient device for work. The scythe does not swing here, the lawn mower has too large dimensions. A trimmer for grass with a fishing line is held with a protective casing tightly to the bush, slightly bowing the head of the device to the ground. Bypass from left to right, the range of each bush and wood separately.

Choosing a trimmer for grass

Several reasonable tips for choosing a device:

weeds, motorcycle, lawn, haircut
  • If the owner needs to mow grass in any weather, he needs a gasoline unit. he works well during the rain. Here it is worth paying attention to the recommendations of the manufacturer, some models cannot be used in raw weather.
  • The weakest place of battery trimmers is the electric motor. The higher the node is, the less vulnerable the device. But in the rain, a battery cutter is also not recommended to work.
  • Electimimers are not used in the rain in general so that the water does not get into the extension connectors. Enough moisture drops for a short circuit and the failure of the device.

Some masters mow low grass, passing backwards. Buryan lies on top, but there is a risk. A little fishing line for a trimmer is wound a little, the turns are made weak. so there is less likelihood of melting the cutting part.
