Your lawn needs to be cut to different lengths, depending on the time of year. Too short in summer and the grass can get burnt. Too long in winter and your lawn can turn to mulch. A choice of cutting heights allows you to accurately position the cutting deck of your Sanli lawnmower to optimise lawn quality.
Walk at slower pace while mowing.
Raise the cutting height on your mower.
Cut the grass more frequently.
Overlap the cutting paths instead of cutting a full path with each pass.
Clean the clippings and dirt from the underside of the mower after each use. (Grass build up inside the mower will affect cutting quality.)
60 litres for the plastic catcher and 50 litres for the fabric catcher
After each use, we recommend cleaning your machine. Once you have cleaned your machine, store it in a cool and dry place away from the rain and sunlight e.g. a shed or a garage.

Leave the engine running outdoors for several minutes to warm the oil and make it more fluid. Remove the spark plug cap and unscrew the oil level dipstick. Place a suitable container beneath the mower’s oil filler pipe and tilt the mower onto its side with the air filter and carburettor uppermost. Allow the oil to drain completely into the container. Return the mower onto its four wheels and fill the engine with new oil.
For peak engine performance, it's wise to only store fuel for about 4 weeks. After that time, most petrol begin to deteriorate and become less effective. Sanli recommends the use of Fuel Stabiliser to prevent fuel from deteriorating due to age.
Petrol is highly ﬂammable so extreme caution must be taken when handling it. Always store petrol in approved containers
Metal containers are suitable, providing they are of good quality, well- sealed and suitably labelled. The only suitable plastic containers are those specifically marketed for the purpose of fuel storage. These will be embossed with a marking indicating that they comply with the requirements of *AS/NSZ 2906:2001- Fuel containers, portable, plastic and metal. Fully compliant containers can be purchased from hardware stores, auto parts or us. Sanli fuel can part number is KSP-FC1.
Store fuel and oil in a cool well-ventilated place, away from direct sunlight and gas cylinders or hot wate heater systems.
The first oil change should be carried out after the first 5 hours of mower use. Thereafter, change the oil after every 25 hours use or at least once a year.
Oil should be changed according to your owners’ manual - but more often in severe use or dusty conditions. We find that it is better to change the oil too often than not enough. Oil is cheap insurance against early engine failure.
After each use, we recommend cleaning the cutting deck. With the engine stopped and cold, the spark plug lead disconnected, tip the machine onto the muffler side so as to avoid flooding the air filter with oil. Then simply clean the inside of the deck and the blades by spraying them with a hose. After cleaning, move the mower to a dry area. Always refer to your owners’ manual for correct cleaning procedure for your specific model.
Yes they will open out, when the engine starts. Do not try to reposition the blades
An air filter in poor condition will reduce the performance and life of the engine while making it harder to start. Regular checks are therefore essential, especially when using the mower in dusty conditions. Check and clean the air filter every 25 hours of use or more often if the engine is used in a dusty environment. Remove the air filter cover lid and carefully remove the foam filter cartridge. Clean the cartridge in a small bowl of warm water containing a few drops of washing-up liquid until it is perfectly clean and free from all traces of grease and dust. Rinse the filter cartridge in clean water and then squeeze gently to remove most of the water. Let it air dry until it is completely dry. Clean the cover and inside of the air filter box with a clean lint-free cloth. Apply a uniform layer of oil to the outside of the cartridge filter with a brush (you can use clean engine oil for this). Insert the filter cartridge into its housing and replace the filter lid, ensuring that each component is in place and properly installed. If the filter cartridge is damaged or is very dirty, replace it using a genuine part.
We recommend to use NGK BPR6ES or Torch F6RTC for Sanli 4 stroke mowers and Champion RCJ6Y or NGK BPMR7A spark plug for Sanli trimmers, blower/vac, hedge trimmer and pole saw.
Mowers: for best results we advise you to replace the spark plug after 100 hours of use. When refitting the spark plug do not over-tighten. If adjusting yourself, note the spark plug gap must be set to 0.75mm.
Handhelds: for optimum results we advise you to replace the spark plug after 20 hours of use. When refitting the spark plug take care not to over-tighten. If adjusting yourself, note that the spark plug gap must be set to 0.6 to 7.0mm
