Urgent Help Required with Club Mower

Urgent Help Required.
The mower needs some mainenance. We need a volunteer to help out. With the good weather we are only going to have 3-4 more weeks before the grass is too long to fly.

1. The mower needs a service. Oil, Filter, Cooling System.
2. Blades need to be sharpended, this requires the cutting boxes to be removed and the blades taken out. We can get them sharpened once they have been removed.
3. When rebuilding the cutting boxes several parts of the middle cutter need to be exchanged with our spare blades.

If you can help out please contact Mick Manning.

When removing the blades the need to be identified so that we get them sharpened for rotating in the correct direction.
