Basic service for your lawn mower

In order for your lawn mower to work optimally, you need to perform basic service.

  2. Remove the oil tank cap and the dipstick.
  3. Tilt the product to drain the engine oil into the container.
  4. Wipe off any spilled oil with a cloth.
  5. After performing all tasks listed below, pour fresh engine oil into the product. Make sure to use the correct type of engine oil for your specific lawn mower. You can find the engine oil information for your lawn mower in the operator's manual. We recommend Husqvarna SAE 30 engine oil.

  2. Clean the housing with a cloth.
  3. Take out the air filer and check it.
