  • First check that you have a fully charged battery - a fully charged battery maximises runtime and also power, and minimises the chance of your mower cutting out in use.
  • The next thing to check for is the condition of your lawn - for best performance, it's recommended to mow your lawn regularly and to mow dry grass.
  • Always remove obstructions such as sticks and gumnuts from your lawn before mowing as these can cause your mower to cut-out. 
  • Mow on a higher setting before moving to a lower one if your grass is on the longer side.
  • If you've had your mower for a while, consider replacing the blades as new, sharp blade reduces the amount of strain placed on your mowers motor and can help avoid cut-outs.
