A New Tool for Lawn Mower Repair Helps to Prevent Injury and Save Money
A new repair tool enables homeowners to sharpen the blades on their own lawn mowers saving on costly repairs. The tool helps to hold a lawn mower blade, keeping it from spinning so it can be unbolted with ordinary wrenches and prevent injury.
An engineer from Indiana has invented the new tool which safely holds a lawn mower blade so it can be removed without heavy equipment like impact wrenches and compressors for the purpose of repair and blade sharpening.
According to the designer, this new repair tool works by holding the lawn mower blade and keeping it from rotating while being unbolted with ordinary wrenches.
The tool would then help prevent injury like in the case of someone
trying to unbolt the blade while holding it by hand or the practice of trying to block
the blade from moving by jamming something between the mower deck and blade which could possibly do damage to the mower or cause personal injury.
The tool called the"Gripper Tool Lawn Mower Blade Remover" and is especially useful for large riding mowers and non-mulching push mowers. Do-it-
As far as convenience goes, there is the down time of the mower to consider while it is being serviced by a shop. Sometimes repair work piles up and these shops run behind during peak seasons of mowing.
The designer claims that a big advantage might be found in a tool like this that helps to get the blade off and back on without having to wait, helping to get the the mower back in service immediately and without a lot of expense. The Gripper Tool blade remover could then be very useful and valuable to home owners and lawn maintenance services alike.
On the inventors new website, http://www.Grippertool.com, there is a short video where he quickly takes off three mower blades and replaces them with sharpened ones on an average size riding mower in about 12 minutes along with a tip on hand file sharpening verses electric grinder.
The new tool can be purchased through the inventors website .
