Caring For Your Lawn Mower Tires
Lawn mower tires are often an overlooked part of the machine. We pay attention
to the motor, the drive mechanism and the blades, but often forget that it is
the tires that are ultimately driving the lawn mower. Keeping your lawn mower
tires in good condition and changing them on a regular basis goes a long way
towards efficient lawn care.
Keeping the lawn mower tires and wheels in good shape is important for a number
of reasons. As the point of contact between machine and ground, the tires
transmit the pushing energy into movement. If you don’t have the proper tires or
wheels on your lawn mower, you will need more energy to move the machine. This
means sorer muscles or higher gasoline costs.
Not all mowers have inflatable lawn mower tires. Many of the walk-behind models
have plastic or metal wheels that are suitable for the lighter weight of these
machines. All riding mowers have inflatable tires, though, to support the weight
of the machine and to provide efficient maneuverability.
Lawn mower tires have to be kept at the proper inflation. If they are too soft,
they require more energy to move, and can get stuck more easily in soft ground.
If the tires are too hard, on the other hand, they are more prone to puncture –
especially on rough terrain. The proper inflation should be marked on the side
of the tire – just as on a car.
Lawn mower tires for tractor lawn mowers have many of the same features as car
tires. They are available in a variety of treads, and come in different heights
and widths. Follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for the most suitable
tires for your mower.
The various treads available for lawn mower tires allow you to choose a tire
that is suitable for your yard. Wide, stubby tires are good for superior
traction under a variety of conditions, while smoother, narrower tires are
better for fair-weather use. Take into account your climate and lawn mower
habits when choosing lawn mower tires.
Check the pressure on your lawn mower tires at least once a week. It’s a good
habit to go over the entire machine before using it. This way, you can spot
potential problems and correct them before they turn into major repair jobs.
