Aztec Walkover Rambler Sprayer’s Additonal Feature

The Aztec Walkover Rambler Sprayer: Our excellent sprayer made by Aztec has a new feature. Normally, the Rambler sprayer comes with the regular two nozzle spray system. But now you can get the Optional Spray Boom. The Rambler Spray Boom is an optional attachment that can be purchased separately. The Walkover part number is W2060.

Optional Spray Boom: When attached to the sprayer ( a simple changeover, taking the short spray bar off the Walkover Rambler Sprayer & connecting the longer one ) it increases the width of the spray path from 2 to 4 nozzles and sprays in excess of 1.5 metres wide, compared to 90cms on the standard spraybar.

Walkover Sprayers: What we love about the Walkover Sprayers is the exceptionally high quality with which they are made. All parts can be replaced which means your machine will last a very long time. The wheel powers the pump making this a truly people powered machine.

Fiskars Momentum – Blade Sharpening Tips

Fiskars Momentum – Blade sharpening:  Regarding sharpening the blades or the the Fiskars Momentum Push Reel Mower. With further investigation & testing, we are now reversing our opinion re: blade “sharpening”, saying “Fiskars does not recommend sharpening the Momentum™ reel mower. The equipment and processes used in home sharpening kits, and even by many professional sharpeners, will likely not be able to achieve the strict tolerances required to maintain the non-contact nature of the cutting system. In the unlikely event that the blades on a heavily used Momentum™ manual reel mower begin to show signs of dulling, Fiskars recommends backlapping to restore the blade edges.”  To “backlap” the Momentum™ reel mower, an abrasive lapping compound is applied to the blades with a brush and the reel is spun backwards via a special hand crank until the blades are smooth and sharpness is restored. While existing backlapping kits for reel mowers can be modified to work with Momentum™ push reel lawn mower, Fiskars is developing a custom kit that will be available in late 2011 or early 2012. The Fiskars kit will include a hand crank designed specifically for the Momentum™ mower, a lapping compound ideally suited for the Momentum™ mower’s blades, an application brush and clear, easily followed instructions.

Fiskar Momentum Reel Mower

Length of Time Before Sharpening: How long should the mower go before blades need to be sharpened on the Fiskars Momentum reel mower?  They can go years,  do to the non-contact blade system? Under normal usage the blades should remain sharp for the life of the mower.
