Balkenmäher (Slåtterbalk – lawn mower)

Get the big lawn mower going:

  • Check gasoline (Benzin) and refill with ’95 blyfri’. Do NOT use the stuff in the red container. The red container is only for the line trimmer.
  • Check motor oil. There is oil to refill in the shelf in the garage.
  • Then follow the procedure below:
1

Set main switch to START to prepare for starting the motor. (Set it to STOP to stop the motor immediately)

Push red button 3-5 times to pre-fill the motor with gasoline. If that wasn’t enough (if motor still doesn’t start) repeat this step.

***

2

Pull handle to start motor.

***

3

Lift safety pin to prepare for the red handle to be pushed.

***

6

The knives will start moving as soon as the red handle is pushed down.

***

5

Pushing the black handle will release the wheels and the mower starts moving forward. Push handle after releasing the red safety thing.

***

Here you go. Be mindful of the fact that the mower only goes forward, not backward.

Tidan Photo Website

Kaum zu glauben, Tidan hat einen (neuen) Fan: Arnold Karlén hat auf seiner Photoblogseite ca. 100 Fotos direkt aus dem Tidan (Arbeits-) Alltag mit vielen bekannten Gesichtern. Die Konditorinnen beim Teig walzen, Tidan’s Autowerkstatt, Klempner, mechanische Werkstätten, Schaltzentrale im Silo, Antikvariat, das Büro im Fahrradgeschäft … ausserdem einige interessante Hintergrundinformationen (in Schwedisch).
