Troubleshooting mower blade problems

Mower deck, not level If your mower deck is not level, it can cause the blades to be unbalanced, leading to several problems. The first thing you need to do is check the manual for your specific mower model to see how to level the deck. Once you have the deck level, you will need to check the blades to make sure they are also level. If they are not, you can use a file or a grinding stone to even them out. Finally, make sure you check the tension on the drive belt to ensure that it is tight enough to power the blades properly. If it is too loose, it can cause an uneven cut and damage the blades. Once these steps are complete, your mower deck should be properly level and ready for use.

Tire pressure

The first thing you need to do when mower is to check the tire pressure. Most lawnmowers have tires that are inflated to around 30 psi. If your tires are low on air, it will put extra strain on the blades and make them work harder. This can cause the blades to wear down faster and eventually break. If the tires are underinflated, you should fill them up to the recommended amount. If they are overinflated, it may be best to release some air until they reach the correct pressure. Once your tires are properly inflated, you can move on to troubleshoot other potential causes of blade problems.


If your mower blades are vibrating, it could be because they’re unbalanced. To fix this, you must remove the blade and take it to a hardware store to balance it. Another reason for vibration could be that the blade is dull. If so, you must sharpen the blade using a file or grinder. Finally, the vibration could also be caused by a bad boy rogue problems. If the blade is bent, you must replace it with a new one.

Wheel alignment

Most mower blades are designed to be self-sharpening, but over time they can become dull or damaged. If your mower blades are not cutting evenly or you notice them chipping or breaking, it’s time to replace or sharpen them. While you can take your mower blades to a professional for sharpening, it’s quite easy to do at home. All you need is a sharpening stone and some elbow grease! First, remove the blade from the mower deck. Be sure to disconnect the spark plug wire first so that the engine cannot start while you’re working on it. Next, use the sharpening stone to remove any nicks or damage on the blade. Start with the coarse side of the stone and switch to the finer side until the blade is nice and sharp. Finally, reattach the blade to the mower deck and reconnect the spark plug wire. You’re ready to return and cut your grass with newly sharpened blades!
