You don't! Usually. Some allow height adjustments only. Others do not! One height fits all! On a side note...I hope you are a youngster! Maaaan! those puppies really require more push energy than you'd think. And if you aren't a young'in I sincerely hope you got a "victory garden" patch or something small in area...WHEW! But...I have seen them for sale "new" as recently as 2 weeks ago. (I'd rather faint from trying to pull start my "self propelled" baby!

    Oh How do you adjust a push mower? (it just hit me) Tilt forwards at 60 degree angle whilst pushing, if that don't work try 45 degrees!

  • Ed Gore May 10, 2010

    You probably could! Hey? it can still need repair, right? and the only thing I can tell you with that type of mower is "keep the blades sharp!" The sharper they stay, the easier the work is. Its directly related to the ease of use. Fortunately, those types of mowers cut by "sheering" very much like scissors sheer. Keep those edges square!

Front wheels on manual mower lock when pushing for awhile.


1 Locate the height adjustment lever on the inside of the left rear wheel.
2 Kneel next to the mower and push the left height adjustment lever toward the center of the mower. This will unlock the lever from the locking pin on which the height is currently set.

3Rotate the lever toward the front of the mower to lower the height of cut, or toward the rear of the mower to raise the height of cut.

4 Release the lever over the locking pin closest to the desired height of cut.

5 Repeat these steps with the adjustment lever on the right-side rear wheel. Be sure to set the right wheel lever to the same position as the left-side wheel's lever for an even cut.

I think with those things you might be cutting grass that is to long, try to raise the height setting if possible and try cutting again. Do this until you get going then adjust back down to desired height. Good Luck...

How do i sharpen cylinder mower blades


I believe you mean to say a 'reel' mower. Normally and old fashoined push (non-engine powered) mower.

Most consumer reel mowers do not need to be sharpened. They do however have a knife bed that occasionally needs to be adjusted. It should have the thickness of a regular piece of notebook paper between the blades and the knife bed. (that is really VERY close) You can buy 'lapping compound' from an automotive parts store, and apply that to the bed knife, and then rotate the blades to provide a precise fit for all blades.

Commercial reel mowers, such as those used on golf course equipment are however sharpened normally once or twice a year. It requireds dismantling, and many courses send their blades to a central location for golf equipment, where they are placed on a computer operated sharpener for precision grinding. This cost several hundreds of dollars just for the grinding.
