The Bail lever is a standard method of shutting off a lawn mower motor. It is made up of four parts: a bail lever, a cable, a brake assembly, and an on/off switch. Other mowers may be equipped with a throttle lever and a stop start device that work together. It is likely that a cable will be used in this sort of setup, and it will require adjusting from time to time.
Without a kill switch, here’s how to turn off your lawnmower.
- Put down the lawn mower and take a break. Check to verify that you are standing steady and that the mower is on level ground before continuing.
- Pull the throttle all the way to the ‘Stop’ setting
- Locate the spark plug wire on the lawn mower and connect it to the engine. It should travel from the throttle to the motor
- Otherwise, it is inefficient.
