Set the parking brake and adjust the operator’s seat to the appropriate height. The release valves for each of the driving pumps may be found on the interior of each of the pumps.

Can you tip a lawn mower on its side?
The question was originally answered as follows: Is it permissible to turn a lawn mower on its side? Yes, that’s fine, but you must maintain the carb side up to prevent oil from draining into it. If all of the components are functioning properly, there should be no leakage of gas. I normally tip it backwards to sharpen or change the blade, as well as to clean the underside of the boat deck.
Can you push a hydrostatic mower?
- Mowers with hydrostatic transmissions cannot be pushed without disengaging the transmission.
- Because fluid is pushed to the wheels in order for them to turn, if the engine is turned off, the pump is turned off as well, and the wheels will not turn.
- If you try to push the mower while it is turned off, the fluid that has already collected at the wheels will run back into the pump, causing damage.
How often should you change the oil in a push mower?
When using a new mower engine, you should change and replace the oil as soon as possible after the first usage, which is approximately five hours of running time. It is advised to change and replace the oil in current push mowers, such as those shown in the video below, at least once a season or every 50 hours of use.
Can you push start a riding lawn mower?
Some riding mowers have the ability to be started with the touch of a button, much like a car with a manual gearbox. Remember that this will only work on riding mowers that have a clutch, so keep that in mind when you read the instructions. A buddy will be required to push you up the hill if your property does not have a long, pretty steep slope.
