How to sharpen lawn mower blade?

Kathryn BushongMarie VanhuisCarolyn Faye Blizzard Lanier


I was told not to turn your lawnmower on its side, fore, small particles can get in the lines. So, how do you get the blade off to sharpen? I guess I have 2 questions?

    I turn my mower on its side to remove the blade Opposite the gas tank. Make sure you unplug the spark plug for safety sake.

    You can use the jack from your car, or car ramps to lift the mower enough to get underneath it. Turning it over isn't a good idea, trust me! I learned the hard way!
  • We have two riding lawn mowers and My husband doesn't turn them over he has a lift with a chain to pull the mowers up and sharper the blades, but if you have a push mower you are going to have to turn it on its side or pull it down with the handle and put something on the handle to hold the front end up so you can get to the blades, be very careful while sharpening the blades because you can get cut really easy...
