Finally after fixing my reassembly issues with my Ajax mower i have a cutting issue. Ive not used a push mower in 40 years and have no idea on how it should feel, or how hard to push.
Rear roller stripped and re greased, same for cylinder bearings and drive gear. All spin freely, but how freely should they spin? Like the wheel on a bike that spins for a minute or so?
Pushing it on the path with front rollers in the air and the cylinder spins, but on the lawn the rear roll keeps locking up on a dry lawn and it does feel very stiff. With no experience of how one should feel i cant attempt to diagnose and fix the problem. Im sure having to push down on the handles to add more weight to the roller then walking at speed to keep things going is not how Ransomes designed it.
