Lawn mower's oil is an important component required in the maintenance of a lawn mower.
No matter the mower is manual or electric oil is always applied as it acts both as a lubricant as well as a coolant for the engine.
Lubricant is a material which is used to prevent metal parts from friction.
Lawn mower is a machine and every machine needs to be maintained regularly in order to have achieving long life.
Manual mower is oiled in order to protect its metal parts from rubbing against each other and getting torn out.
