HERE ARE A FEW QUESTIONS I WILL BE ASKING YOU WHEN YOU CALL:
NOW OFFERING MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR FOR GAS GENERATORS. WE NO LONGER REPAIR OR MAINTAIN CHAIN SAWS OR REPAIR THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS.
Did you buy your lawn mower new or used and how long ago did you buy it.
When was it last running correctly and has it been sitting and for how long.
What brand is it and if a lawn mower is it a drive or push.
What city do you live in and can you bring it to me?
The danger of mower engine speed
Most modern mowers are of the rotary type. Rotary mower engines are all made to spin at 3,600 revolutions per minute when not under load. During cutting, the rpm drops to between 2800 and 3300. There is a simple wire-based device for measuring rpm on a running mower, which all mower specialists would own.The other speed linked with your question could be that concerning the velocity of the blade tip as it revolves. As the center of the blade is spinning at 3600 rpm, an 18 inch blade tip will travel through the air at one speed a 21 inch at a faster speed and so on. Rotary mower blade bars are made up to a max of 24 inches.st
Lawnmower Accidents Cause Thousands of Foot Injuries each year.
Your lawn could become a "toe-away" zone if you’re not careful when operating rotary-blade lawn mowers.
The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission estimates more than 37,000 Americans suffer a power mower-related injury each year.
"We still see too many foot injuries from power lawnmowers," says foot and ankle surgeon James Thomas, DPM, FACFAS. "The blades whirl at 3,000 revolutions per minute and produce three times the kinetic energy of a .357 handgun. Yet we see patients who have been hurt while operating a mower barefoot! Foot injuries range from dirty, infection-prone lacerations to severed tendons to amputated toes."
If a mower accident occurs—even just a minor injury—Thomas says immediate treatment is necessary to flush the wound thoroughly and apply antibiotics to prevent infection. Superficial wounds can be treated on an outpatient basis, but more serious injuries usually require surgical intervention to repair tendon damage, deep clean the wound and suture it. Tendons severed in lawnmower accidents generally can be re-attached surgically unless toes have been amputated.
Thomas says children under the age of 14 and adults over age 44 are more likely to be injured from mowers than others. He advises anyone who operates a power mower to take a few simple precautions:
Don’t mow a wet lawn. Losing control from slipping on rain-soaked grass is the leading cause of foot injuries caused by power mowers.
Wear heavy shoes or work boots when mowing—no sneakers or sandals.
Mow slowly across slopes, never go up and down.
Never pull a running mower backward.
Keep the clip bag attached when operating a power mower to prevent projectile injuries.
Use a mower with a release mechanism on the handle that automatically shuts it off when the hands let go.
Always keep children away from the lawn when mowing it.
Treat Your Injury Right Away
