How to change the cutting blades on your Automower®

When the blades become worn, or when the tip of the grass blades begin to whiten and look frayed when cutting, you should change the blades on your Automower® to maintain performance. Make sure you always use original blades and screws, and always replace the screw at the same time as the blade when carrying out maintenance, otherwise the screw can be worn out and cause the blade to come loose when operating.
