How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Specifications: Power capacity: 24v / 4.5Ahr. 24 Hours initial charging time – and then a minimum of 14 hours charge there after.
A 2.0Ah 14.4 volt lithium-ion battery, with LED indicator, powers the hedge trimmer to give a running time of up to an hour. The battery charger is included and takes around 200 minutes to fully charge the battery.
For 24v batteries, which are more efficient than their smaller cousins, 10 hours of charging (both the first and all subsequent charges) are enough.
Q. How Long Does It Take To Recharge The Batteries? The Flymo EasiLife range automatically return to the charging station when its battery is getting low, and typically takes 60 mins to recharge.
The charging indicator on your device will start flashing to indicate that the groomer is charging. Once the groomer is fully charged, the charging indicator lights up continuously for approximately 30 minutes and then automatically turns off to save energy.
This can be as simple as the lawn mower having run out of fuel or battery, or in the case of electric mowers, the cable coming out of the socket. Also check cables, fuses and breakers for electric mowers. Trimming too much grass in one go can cause the lawn mower to get bogged down which will make it stop.
A new lawn battery should last between three and five years. In order to achieve that, however, it`s important to perform regular maintenance. Here are a few tips to help you get the longest life possible out of your battery.

The Runtime of a 24V Trolling Motor Battery

Our 24V trolling motor batteries from Abyss Battery feature a general runtime of five to seven hours on a single charge and under favorable conditions. With a 24V 75 Ah or 24V 100Ah setup from Abyss Battery, you can expect an even longer runtime of over eight hours.

Charging times can vary significantly depending on the size of the scooter, type of battery and charge remaining in the battery. However, a full charge can take anywhere from 6 to 10 hours. The battery is fully charged when the light on your charger turns green. In some cases, this light might also flash green.
To charge a 24V 200Ah battery with a 20 amps charger, it would take approximately 8 hours.

I Have a flymo twister 2500 blow / vac it sucks up leaves and doesnt cut them up , gets blocked and therefore doesnt work, what can i do?
ANSWER : Your machine is very sensitive. By that I mean it will only take in leaves and nothing else. A little twig will jam it. I don’t know what you mean by cut them up because you machine is not a chipper. You have one impeller which does the two jobs of sucking and blowing. If I am not mistaken it is plastic too which makes it not too strong. If you need to change the impeller, do so and just use it to blow debris. Good Luck

Battery?, wiring?? Had a recent problem with blades not engaging. I have had also had a slightly older issue of battery not holding charge so i have to boost or jump start mower. I went out and bought brand new battery and after one usage it would not hold charge and blades will still not engage. Would the issue related to the battery effect the engagement of the blades???
ANSWER : If your Alternator didn’t charging the battery, even though you brand new battery will not last. So there is two possible cause, 1) Your Alternator is not functioning. 2) there is a wiring problem that causing your battery to discharge easily, but you check it after you switch off the key remove the battery negative terminal then touch it back to batt term. and see if there is little blue spark, if does your wiring system got problem. If not, so your Alternator do not charge the battery.

I have a flymo 400 petrol mower with a b&s motor, it starts fine and runs but surges all the time…. any one know? i have given it a service and spring clean as you do but no change … cheers people
ANSWER : Hi terrymaskell…

Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible. Be sure to Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
NOTE: Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Make sure you mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you dissemble the carburetor into separate pieces.That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.Also check you fuel line condition after a while they will degrade and need replacment.Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.Also make sure you are using fresh fuel.If the mower is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit.When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.Once you have your carburetor rebuilt that should solve your problem.
