Air filter for grass trimmer with your own hands
Tweaks to the selection of consumables for trimmers
The basic consumables for any garden trimmer for grass, of course, is its cutting equipment, that is, a line for the trimmer, knives and circular saw blades. In addition, there are a number of consumables, typical only for gasoline trimmers, due to the peculiarities of their device.
Knowing the types of accessories and their possible uses can help you when choosing accessories for your grasshopper.
Some consumables may come with the kit, others you’ll need to purchase on your own. Let’s say, if you plan to struggle on your plot with small bushes. First, get a grass trimmer that is capable of working with metal blades. Secondly, take the blades themselves with the machine if they are not in the basic set.
So, let’s take a closer look at each of the types of equipment.
Necessary materials and tools
To begin with, the hollow filter with nets should be removed from the chainsaw, washed with a soft brush and mild soap under running hot water and blown with, for example, an ordinary hair dryer.
To do this, the plastic housing must be disassembled into two pieces, carefully not to damage it, opening the latches with a screwdriver. This step is necessary to remove wood pollen from the internal cavities. Besides it is necessary to take off the rubber band from the branch pipe (if there is one) and clean it from dirt.
Let’s assemble the case back not forgetting to put the rubber seal back. This completes the preparations for the improvement. Now it is necessary to make a visit to the kitchen supplies department of the nearest hardware store to buy fibre cloths/scrubs and double-layer sponges, which are used in the household for washing dishes or final finishing of various sanded objects
The main criterion of your choice is that the sponge or the cloths made of polymer fibers must not have any abrasive particles on them.
carbon grass trimmer
Modernization of the grass trimmer would not be complete without touching the subject of the appearance of the grass trimmer. To fundamentally change the appearance of the grass trimmer and make it look really cool, you can remove the engine covers, clean them and cover them with a self-adhesive film with Carbon coloring.
Carbon is a composite material from the carbon fiber family, very lightweight and very strong. Used in aviation and expensive automobile construction.
Lawn mower with their own hands from a washing machine
To assemble a homemade lawn mower on the basis of a washing machine, the maker will need the same tools and materials as in the construction of equipment from a chainsaw. Before starting work, you need to prepare two schemes. The first should describe the dimensions and installation principle of all the nodes. The second drawing should display the finished homemade mower with its finished dimensions and appearance.
The lawnmower from the engine from a washing machine is assembled with your own hands in this sequence:
- First you need to weld a strong frame, taking a metal angle with dimensions of 25 × 25 mm. To the corners of the ready frame it is necessary to weld 4 stands, to which the wheels will be attached. In the central part of the frame you must install a steel plate, to the bottom of which will be pre-welded stiffeners. A plate is needed to install the motor from a washing machine. A U-shaped handle welded from metal pipes should be welded to the back of the structure;
- Next, in the center of the plate you will need to cut a hole for the motor shaft. The front part of the frame must be equipped with a grid or arc made of soft bending steel. This element will absorb the energy of the blade if it breaks off. The grid must be installed so that in its stationary position the blade has a gap of 2 cm at the bottom and top, as well as 1 cm at the front;
- Then the engine for the lawnmower must be installed. The shaft of the power unit must fit in the hole. A pre-sharpened knife is mounted on it. The upper part of the engine must be covered with a protective cover welded from a steel plate. You have to drill a few holes in the box to cool the engine.
During operation, the operator must always make sure that the lawn mower is working properly. made by your own hands. do not cut through the power cable. For this it is best to attach the wire to the handle, clamping it with clips.
Never store gasoline in plastic water containers. Static charge builds up while mixing the fuel mixture, you could “catch” a spark.
That’s why gas stations do not allow you to fill up gasoline in plastic cans, but only in metal cans. Before pouring gasoline into the metal canister it is better to put it on the ground, this removes static from the housing.
But there are situations when simple machine operation doesn’t help. The engine still won’t start. In this case, we go to check the power and ignition system, guided by the rule “the motor does not work if there is nothing to burn or there is nothing to ignite”.
Malfunctions of the lawnmower and the ways to fix them
Any type of grasshopper has a hollow shaft, in which is placed a connecting cable between the motor shaft and the bottom gear that transmits the rotation to the tool with cutting equipment. The upper part houses the carburetor and motor, below. the gearbox and the working tool, closed hood. in the middle part there is a transversal handle, where the control buttons are located. To relieve the hands, there is an unloading belt holding the boom by the operator’s torso.
When choosing a mower, it’s better to have a two-stroke engine than a four-stroke. The two-stroke motor is more maneuverable and easier to repair. The four-stroke engine has lower vibration level.
Their it follows that the repair of lawnmowers is to eliminate defects;
- the engine does not start;
- The cutting mechanism does not develop;
- The engine stops;
- gearbox is heating up;
- Alienated knocking, heavy boom vibration can be heard.
While troubleshooting, it is necessary to perform diagnostics, find a non-functional unit.
It is important to know the lubrication points of the tool. Consistent care and cleaning after use helps to prolong the life of the machine. Before you start work, tighten the fastening screws, prepare the fuel and fill the tank.

How to clean and store the tool?
While the lawnmower is in operation, check the condition of the engine cooling system. The recirculation channels in the starter housing and the cylinder fins must always be clean. If you ignore this requirement and continue to operate your brushcutter, it is possible to overheat the engine and cause it to overheat.
Competent care of the gasoline mower during operation allows you to use it for several seasons in a row without serious repairs
Let the engine cool down before cleaning. Take a brush with a soft pile and clean the dirt from the outer surface. Clean plastic parts with solvents, including kerosene, or special detergents.
At the end of the summer season, the lawnmower should be prepared for long-term storage. To do this, the fuel mixture is drained from the tank. Then the engine is started in order to remove any fuel residue from the carburetor. All tools are well cleaned of dirt and put into “winter hibernation.
As you can see, the repair of faults of the household lawnmower can be quite on their own. It is worth going to the service department in case of serious breakdowns. You should match the cost of repair with the price of a new lawn mower. It may be more sensible to buy a new tool.
About the flowers, it definitely works. The main thing is to choose the right ones. If you want to “lay down”. Take a bunch of red roses. and if you get revenge, the cactus is the prickliest. I don’t know about the air blower. I think this will work
For “good hands, I praise, but for the excessive haste. You can also do it in a simpler way! In order to save time, step by step: 1. We remove the filter and if possible blow it off with a compressor (very carefully)!) or a vacuum cleaner, (blow from the carburetor side)!2.In warm water 40-60 degrees dissolve detergent for washing up “Test” or other highly concentrated. Leave it for 15-20 minutes.3. Using a brush with a long pile, in a submerged state in the solution wash curtains.4. Under running water by giving it to that side of the filter which is directed to the carb, thoroughly flush the filter 5. Dry in the open air (the process is quite long) or with a fan (faster but more expensive).6After the filter is completely dry, install it and then enjoy the ride!On my Java, I have the filter is restored like that 6 or 7 times already, and the mileage of the engine, mainly on rural and therefore dusty roads was already 72 thousand. And he is still full of energy. One more tip: Take off the filter and inspect it carefully. If you find abnormal soiling (oily feeling) cover it with 3-4 mm thick piece of parol as an extra protection against oil leaking from the carburettor when it clatters. LUCK.

The equipment described above must be used while wearing special clothing and using equipment. Clothing should not interfere with work. Choose one that fits the body well. Avoid wide sleeves that could catch on bushes, wood or moving machine parts.
It is important to remove ties and shawls. This also applies to jewelry. Before starting the STIHL FS 55 lawnmower you should wear safety boots with rough soles. It is important to use a special safety helmet and goggles, which will prevent damage to the eyes.
