Blade guard for rotary lawn mowers

Blade guard for rotary lawn mowers

A blade guard for rotary lawn mowers comprising a plurality of spaced apart elongated members which extend longitudinally in the intended direction of travel of the mower device. The space between the forward ends of the elongated members and the forward end of the mower cowling is open and free from obstructions to permit the grass to be sucked upwardly for cutting by the mower blade. The elongated members have varying lengths to define an effective area substantially the same as the area defined by the unsharpened center portion of the mower blade when rotating so that the sharpened ends of the blade extend outwardly beyond the effective area of the guard means. The guard means is hinged to the mower cowling to permit convenient cleaning of the mower. An ignition interlock means is also connected to the guard.

Blade guard for rotary lawn mowers

Blade guard for rotary lawn mowers

A blade guard for rotary lawn mowers comprising a support means secured to the mower cowling and having a plurality of spaced apart elongated members secured thereto which extend longitudinally in the intended direction of travel of the mower device. A guard ring is mounted on the support and extends upwardly therefrom adapted to engage the unsharpened portion of the mower blade to prevent the elongated members from being struck by the blade upon the elongated members being deflected upwardly relative to the blade. The forward ends of the elongated members have spear-like points provided thereon which are positioned in openings formed in the forward skirt portion of the cowling. A bumper guard is secured to the cowling and is positioned over the forward ends of the spear-like points. The points comb and rake the lawn while it is being mowed with the grass hairpinning over the points to cause the same to be lifted so that the loose grass rides upward and rearward as the points move.

DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF LAWN MOWER

DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF LAWN MOWER

A traditional lawn mower is the height of the grass cut cannot be adjusted spontaneously because the height adjustment of the rotor blade is done by lifting the whole deck with the help of wheel support and this mechanism takes time at least (4-5 minutes) to adjust the rotor. The components that are used are motor, gear arrangement, cam, chain and sprocket, lead screw, wheel, control unit. Below the gear arrangement cutting blade is fixed. When the motor starts running by the use of power supply, the shaft also rotates and that rotates the gear arrangement which is coupled with the motor. Power consumption becomes essential for future. Solar grass cutter is a very useful device which is very simple in construction. The most common types are fitted with wheels, but a newer innovation is the hover model in which the spinning blade also acts as a fan that provides a lift force, lifting the mower body clear of the ground on the same principle with a hover craft. Rotary mowers generally have opening by the side of the housing through which cut grasses are expelled. Some are

Design and Implementation of Automatic Lawn Cutter

Design and Implementation of Automatic Lawn Cutter

The automating lawn cutter is a fully automated grass cutting robotic vehicle powered by solar energy that also avoids obstacles and is capable of fully automated grass cutting without the need of any human interaction. The grass cutter and vehicle motors are interfaced to an 8051 family microcontroller that controls the working of all the motors. It is also interfaced to an ultrasonic sensor for object detection. The microcontroller moves the vehicle motors in forward direction in case no obstacle is detected. On obstacle detection the ultrasonic sensor monitors it and the microcontroller thus stops the grass cuter motor to avoid any damage to the object/human/animal whatever it is. Microcontroller then turns the robotic as long as it gets clear of the object and then moves the grass cutter in forward direction again.

The Development of Microcontroller-based Lawn Mower

The Development of Microcontroller-based Lawn Mower

NOWADAYS people used to cut the grass by using manual handling. Few problems might occur during the usage of this machine. From observations, a conventional lawn mower needs to be push in order for the machine to move. Due to the manual handling, one requires a lot of energy to move the machine and time will be wasted. The development of advanced lawn mower begin when the people are aspire to replace the conventional method of cutting the grass that need more energy to perform the task. The evolution is started by creating a tool like sickle to perform the grass cutting task. N. Saleh is with the Electrical Technology Section, University of Kuala Lumpur British Malaysian Institute, Gombak, Selangor, Malaysia.

Rosemarie Waldrop’s Lawn of Excluded Middle

Rosemarie Waldrop’s Lawn of Excluded Middle

Throughout the two serial poems of this volume ("Lawn of Ex- cluded Middle" and "The Perplexing Habit of Falling"), Waldrop's syllogistic syntax reassesses its "human condition": the awareness of and failure of desire; the demand for and failure of definition; the mer- curial quality of language as it disappears like Narcissus precisely at the moment when one feels its proximity, its imminent touch. Each poem posits two poles, between which meaning composes itself—in the real, waivering middle that every polarity excludes. Sustaining a Wittgensteinian attraction to the hypothetical, it frets over representa- tion and interpretation:

The Effects of Lawn Plant Diversity on Arthropod Diversity.

The Effects of Lawn Plant Diversity on Arthropod Diversity.

In one study, turf managed with an organic-centered approach needed only approximately 8.1 liters of water for irrigation annually per square meter of lawn, as opposed to 903 liters in a conventionally managed lawn (Morris and Bagby 2008). The direct causes for the reduction in irrigation were not evaluated; however, studies in organic agricultural systems have shown that an increase in soil biomass increases water retention, which ultimately leads to a higher tolerance in drought conditions (Pimental, Hepperly, Hanson, Douds, and Seidel 2005). Increasing organic matter in lawns also can lower the risk for pest damage as buildup of the organic matter in soils support healthier root systems, and thus have a higher tolerance for pest pressure and damage (Bruneau 1997).

The Effect of Soil Conditioners and Weather on Lawn Appearance

The Effect of Soil Conditioners and Weather on Lawn Appearance

The lawn appearance, according to many au- thors (Domański, 1998; Prończuk et al., 2003; Jankowski et al., 2010; Jankowski et al., 2011) is a result of an interaction between the grass geno- type and environmental conditions. The appear- ance ratings of the lawns (Table 4 and 7) varied throughout the experiment, both in terms of the applied soil conditioner, grass species, and weath- er conditions during each season. Taking into ac- count the time of observations (spring, summer, or autumn) it turned out that weather conditions and, in particular, the distribution of rainfall had a large impact on the overall appearance of lawns.

Rogue Rotary - Modular Robotic Rotary Joint Design

Rogue Rotary - Modular Robotic Rotary Joint Design

69 | P a g e we would use for our electric designs. Instead of running power lines along the robotic arm, hydraulic lines would supply the primary power, allowing for easier scalability without risking electrocution of technicians. There is less of a selection of rotary hydraulics on the market than electric motors within our desired size and weight, but due to their power output, a gear reduction often allows these systems to be applicable for our system. However, hydraulic systems need pumps, sumps and hydraulic fluid to operate, all which require maintenance and can be quite expensive. Coupled with the need for custom lengths of expensive hydraulic line for each configuration of the system, this design did not meet our design criteria for a universal joint. Below is a collection of Pros and Cons for utilizing hydraulics for our universal joint.
