Qualcast Lawn Mower Handle Repair

 

It’s easy to fix the plastic handle on your lawn mower – and cheap – less than a £5 via Amazon!

If you are reading this post you are probably where I was a week ago – your trusty mower not starting and the grass getting longer.

Bit of investigation revealed that the plastic lever used as part of the safety switch mechanism had finally given up the ghost and snapped.

You can see where mine had broken in the photo below.

No problem, quick search on Google and I came across a replacement handle for less than a fiver from Amazon (Atco/Qualcast/Bosch Switch Lever) including delivery.

Apparently this a standard part that fits a long list of lawn mowers going back decades.

All you need is a Philips screwdriver to un-screw the switch mechanism and switch cover to remove the original handle. Then prise off the old handle and put the new one in it’s place.

WARNING: JUST MAKE SURE THE ELECTRICAL PLUG IS DISCONNECTED AND THE POWER IS OFF FIRST!

Saved a fortune as to replace the model of lawn mower I have would have cost going on for £100 – champion.
