Don't let sharp blades and flying debris to make your summer miserable and send you to the ER. Instead, be sure to follow these safety guidelines.


The beginning of the lawn-care season is directly linked to the increase in temperatures recently. Lawnmowers available for sale in CT are an excellent choice to buy but in this post we'll look at the number of injuries that are currently rising as people pull them out of their storage.


What are the hazards of cutting grass with a lawnmower?

The Consumer Product Safety Commission is an independent government agency that is responsible for monitoring the risk of accidents involving household goods.

Hands and feet can be inflicted by commercial lawn mower blades that rotate at thousands of feet per minute. The sticks and rocks thrown out of the machine could travel over 100 miles per hour as they leave the machine at high speeds.

Safety tips for lawn mowers


  • You should read the instruction manual.

It's certainly not the most exciting book, but I believe in it. It's possible you don't even know where the book is. The internet can be used to find the model of your device and also the instructions. Read the instruction manual. Be sure to know how to use the machine correctly.


  • Organize the area.

Large stones, pebbles Christmas decorations, and junk items are likely to get tossed onto the grass during the winter. Before you cut the grass, quickly look over the lawn for any items that could fall in the air, causing injury to the mower's owner or anyone else.


  • Impress your guests.

Instead of wearing sandals or just bare feet, proper footwear is the most effective way to protect your feet from being hit by thrown objects. To keep your legs safe, wear long pants. Protect your ears from the engines' roar and protect your eyes from debris flying around by wearing a pair of hearing and vision protection.


  • Be sure that everything is operating just as it should.

Experts agree that commercial lawn mowers should be avoided by kids less than 12 years old without supervision. It is unlawful for anyone under 16 to use lawnmowers available in CT. If you are a passenger riding the mower, they run the risk of being run over by the mower should they slide off.


  • Burns can be fatal.

A lot of people do not know the dangers of engine exhaust and heat. Unprotected skin can suffer burns by even just a small contact with these surfaces. To avoid igniting fuel fumes or hot surfaces, make sure there are no cigarettes or other ignition sources.


  • It is not a good idea to be near mowers when they are moving.

The lawnmower can also create flying debris that can impact people who are around it. A lawnmower could reach areas that are not visible to the naked eye. Children and other people should be kept at least a couple of feet.


  • Handle with caution.

Keep your hands away from the blades' rotating motion. Take care when you are cutting at an angle or incline to avoid tipping the mower, which could cause it to fall onto the person in front of you or anyone else.


  • Do not touch the machine using your fingers.

Each lawn mower incident began with someone saying "I thought I could reach inside and delicately move that stick, clumps of grass, or something like that. Don't do it. Before you try to clean the machine, shut it off. Make use of a stick, or tool to remove the obstruction.


  • Be on the lookout for energy that has been accumulating in your body.

Many motorized lawn and garden machines can store energy within the drive mechanism, similar to an oiled spring. Similar devices, for example, lawn mowers that are available CT could suddenly stop functioning and stall due to stress built up within the machine. The blades might suddenly move again if you reach in to remove the blockage. These forces can cause injuries to fingers or other objects within their path.


These simple steps can assist you in avoiding injuries to yourself or to others.
