What does EasyStart mean for the Briggs & Stratton engine?
The EasyStart technology makes it 30% easier to start and includes the following features: The starter engages earlier, providing a shorter and lighter pull on the starter rope. A new carburettor with improved flow guarantees easy starting at low revs. The improved ignition coil provides sufficient ignition energy even at low starter speed.

What does ReadyStart mean with the Briggs & Stratton engine?
The ReadyStart technology always supplies the carburettor with the right amount of petrol. The primer and choke do not need to be actuated. This prevents the engine from sinking due to too much petrol. This engine also has the same features as the EasyStart engine.

How do I store the lawn mower over the winter?
Clean the appliance, change the air filter, the spark plug and the oil. Sharpen and balance the blade. Store dry.

Can I also use my GL46 lawnmower for mulching?
You can also use the machine for mulching. To do this, you need a mulching wedge - this is available as an accessory with the article number 46374001 from your local dealer.

Before putting into operation

Which type of petrol can be used for this lawnmower (4-stroke engine)?
Any petrol with at least 77 oct. can be used ! SUPER fuel has 95 oct. and can therefore be used without hesitation. All our engines are E10-compatible - please note untreated fuel should be stored for a maximum of 4 weeks.

Which type of oil can be used for this lawnmower (4-stroke engine)?
Recommended is a SAE 30 engine oil, but a 5W30 or 10W40 can also be used.

Where can I find the right replacement blade for this lawnmower?
The suitable replacement blade for this lawnmower can be purchased from your local AL-KO dealer

The blade is not sharp. Can it be re-sharpened ?
No. The cutting edge is designed to ensure an optimum service life and should be replaced when blunt

During operation

What can I do if the motor does not start?
Press the primer button 3 times at intervals of 2 seconds each time. If the temperature is below 10°C, press the primer button 5 times at intervals of 2 seconds.

The lawn mower is difficult to start. Can I use starter spray?
We strongly advise against using starter spray. In the worst case, chemicals can lead to engine damage. We recommend the machine is checked and, if necessary, carburettor cleaning by a AL-KO service partner.

Why does the lawnmower run lumpy and/or cuts out immediately after starting it?
Check the tank contents - fill up with petrol if necessary. Some suction carburettors always leave a residue of one to two cm of fuel in the tank. Dirt can get into the carburettor due to residues in the fuel or a defective air filter. The carburettor must be removed and cleaned.

Why does the lawnmower's engine smoke white ?
The unit has been tilted incorrectly, oil is in the muffler and/or air filter. The air filter must be disassembled and cleaned. Then check and adjust the oil level in the engine. Then let the engine run, after a few minutes the smoke development decreases. Attention: unburnt engine oil drips out of the muffler leading to environmental pollution! To clean the unit, only tilt it according to the operating instructions. We recommend that you place the handlebar on the ground, the spark plug must be pointing upwards.

Why does the lawnmower's engine smoke black ?
The air filter may be dirty and must be replaced. The oil level in the engine must be checked and adjusted. Then let the engine run. If the smoke development does not decrease, we recommend that you contact your AL-KO service partner.

What should I do if the engine loses power or stops?
Possible reasons for this can be that the air filter is dirty/clogged, that the spark plug is sooty, that the petrol is dirty/old or that the silencer is damaged/clogged. Please carry out the appropriate cleaning and maintenance work or contact a AL-KO service partner.
If you cut very long grass, this requires a high engine power. As a rule of thumb, remember that you should not cut more than 1/3 of the length of the blade of grass. If this does not change the performance of your engine, we recommend that you contact your AL-KO service partner.

The motor "rings". What is the reason for the ?
Normally it is because there is no oil. Check your oil level with the dipstick and top up oil if necessary. If this does not solve the problem, please check that all external components such as the muffler, carburettor, spark plug and cable are correctly fitted and are also tight. If the problem still persists, we recommend that you contact your AL-KO service partner.
