Modern gardening machines, including Atco lawnmowers, are
not what they used to be. Maintenance for modern machines
is now a simple affair and, we have to admit, many modern
consumers of petrol lawnmowers untertake very little maintenance
at all - other than refilling the petrol tank and checking
the oil level from time to time. However, having invested
in your high-quality Atco lawnmower, we believe it is worth
taking the extra time every now and again to make sure it
continues to work to perfection. Atco is an absolute classic
British lawnmower brand - if you wish to buy a cylinder
mower, then these lawnmowers are very best you can buy.
These are the types of machines that will last generations
if looked after properly, and there are many mowers bought
in the 1950s and 60s that are still going strong.
Product Care and Maintenance
1. Clean product after use and lightly oil any accessible moving parts i.e. blade on a lawnmower. This will ensure the product is
in good working order the next time it is used.
2. After the cutting season is over give the product a good
clean: – Remove dried grass from the blades and decks of
mowers. Oil the blades. Check and replace damaged electrical
3. Winter storage: Drain petrol from lawnmower
to prevent sludging. Periodically circulate oil through a petrol engine by a few pulls on the pull starting rope (with spark plug removed). Mower batteries should be fully charged and stored upright in a cool environment. Periodically give the battery a top up charge.
4. Prior to first cut of the season check for any visible
problems i.e. leaking petrol tanks or damaged cables. Winter
is the ideal time to service your equipment. If you need
to employ the services of an Atco Authorised Service Agent,
we will be able to help.
5. Getting your cutting blades sharpened. The QX™ cassette
system makes this easy because you don't have to transport the lawnmower anywhere - you just remove the cassette. If you need assistance, we can have your blades sharpened by mailorder.
6. Refer to your mower's instruction manual for full details
of care and maintenance.
