I’ve had a blade strike, what do I do?

A blade strike is where the user has inadvertently caused the machine to run over an object other than grass. We can provide advice and support.

Most of our lawnmowers use a blade adapter that connects the blade to the drive shaft. In the event of the blade encountering an immovable object like a stone, tree root, tree stump or paving slab, the blade adapter will break to protect the motor, although this may not happen in all circumstances

A replacement blade adapter will be required.

A replacement adapter can be purchased from us although we’d also recommend replacing the blade too, as the blade is normally off balance or damaged and can create instability at high speed, potentially causing injury or irreparable damage to the machine.
