Vital Basics of having healthy and beautiful Lawn

Do you know there is a difference between using any machine and utilizing it? It is almost same as underutilization and optimal utilization of a resource.

The foremost important thing about mowing is to use the implement you have bought to its full capacity. Understand the potential of your machine and then bring it into use with everything suggested by the manufacturers. In the user manual, those points are not narrating some story that you can read or skip as per your interest. It is indeed important to make friends with the mower for keeping your lawn in its best shape. What is more about mowing efficiently that you are keen to discover? Read it out for yourself.

• Sharpening blades-

Yes please do polish your instrument before putting it into work. The edgier its blades are the better will be the cut. Razor-edged blades are not on the list just to increase the length of list but they prove instrumental in reducing the multiple passes and hence decrease the time taken in the process. Clean cuts of grass also prevent the inhibition of pests and diseases in the grass blades. You can have a couple of blades in reserve for perfect mowing schedule.

• Avoid scalping lawn-

In the above point, lawn owners are recommended to sharpen the mower blade and surprisingly they are stopped from using it. No you don’t have to put them back in your garage but make sure you don’t overdo it. By cutting it too short you can make the grass vulnerable for many diseases and weed infestations. Moreover, various mowing experts and studies reveal the truth that continuously scalped lawns are highly prone to serious damages from droughts and high temperature.

• Clear off the debris-

This is something you need to do before you start the machine. Rocks and debris colliding with the machine will definitely affect the blade’s sharpness. Make sure you get rid of anything on the ground that may cause potential injury and frustration.

• Time your mowing schedule-

When do you enjoy walking in the grass? Most of you will say when it is shady. Same thing goes with mowing, plan and perform mowing in low temperatures. In other words, shave grass either in mornings or in evenings. It is good to avoid heat exhaustion and moreover, this is what is required by the roots. However, you should avoid mowing when it is still watery.

• Keep the track of mowing patterns-

Avoid mowing in a particular direction as it will risk the soil compacting which is not good for the health of the grass. Further, it can create ruts too, thus it is advised to change the pattern of mowing every time.

As dawns see you working on your lawn once in a week you will get to enjoy the dusks with your loved ones for the whole week. We take your leave while leaving it to your choice whether you want to share these tiny mowing secrets with your neighbors or not.

I bought an EMSD-56 Embankment Flail Mower Standard Duty. I pre-ordered it in February. This had to be one of the most... difficult years ever as China still had a zero covid policy. As soon as the mower was set to ship the port of Shanghai closed for over 2 months so delivery could not be made as agreed. I was offered a refund or an additional discount at that time. I opted for the additional discount. It took a while but finally the mower made it's way to me and it works fine. What I can say is that the team at this business is totally fair and extremely trustworthy. I would use them again for another more

Purchase of Flail mower was simple, arrived in good condition and assembly was straight forward. The only issue was it... was set up for Cat 2 rather than Cat 1 but that was handled quickly with a new set of pins which were mailed to me and arrived within 3 days. Mower has been used only once to mow about 2 acres and worked wellread more

I purchased the BX42S wood chipper. Shipping was quick and well crated. I've used it now for over 15hrs and it works... perfectly! I cleared woods for a motorcycle track and now I use this to clean up and help loosen up the soil with the mulch it creates. Well worth it!read more

The BX42S wood chipper was received in early March. The unit was packaged in a heavy cage to help prevent shipping... damage. After assembly I connected unit to my tractor and started using it. It has been able to handle any branches that I put into it up to about 4 1/2 inches. I would recommend this unit to anyone that needs a wood more

I just recently purchased the MDWC1500 wood chipper from Victory Tractor for cleaning up around the overgrown fields of... our farm, arrived on time, setup was easy, very well built and rugged chipper! It has no problem chipping 3inch diameter brush. What a great investment for cleaning up around the farm! It did come with a damaged drive belt but a phone call to my local auto parts store and they had the belt in stock. For the price I highly recommend this machine to any small farm/homeownerread more
