From Time to Time: We are asked about removing the E-Ring on the Silent Cut Reel Mower. To do so, you need a pair of pliers. Pry the e-ring off horizontally by pushing away from the axle against the closed side of the e-ring using a standard flat head screw driver. Try putting a drop of oil or grease on it or spraying it with WD40 to make it easier. If you damage or lose the e-ring we will send you another one at no cost.
To Replace the E-Ring:
Replace the e-ring on the Silent Cut Reel Mower by using a large pair of needle-nose pliers. Line the e-ring up in front of the groove. Open the pliers and place one side on the closed side of the e-ring and the other side of the pliers against the far side of the axle. Then close the pliers, snapping the e-ring into place in the groove. It may take a little practice but is fairly easy to do.
