How can I make my lawn mower quieter?
- Work on Your muffler. Most lawn mowers have a muffler installed on the engine.
- Work on the Deck. If you want to reduce the noise coming from the blade, rock pings, and vibrations, quiet the deck.
- Install Engine Silencers on Your Lawn Mower.
Similarly one may ask, why is my lawn mower so loud?
The Reasons Lawn Mowers are Loud Sounds are just vibrations of air. And lawn mowers have small engines that often have small mufflers or no mufflers at all to absorb the sound waves that are created by the combustion of the engines. To begin with, the larger mufflers translate into higher costs.
Subsequently, one may also ask, what is the quietest lawn mower?
The quietest gas-powered mower we tested was an Ariens Model 911097 with a Honda engine. Honda claims they make the quietest lawn mower engine and that appears to be the case. Other gas-powered mowers that were quieter than most include the Honda HRX217HX, many Craftsman mowers (see table) and a Lawn-Boy 10684.
The noise could be due to an exhaust leak although it is also possible that a failed wheel bearing could cause enough "rumbling" to sound really loud. Power steering leaks can be a fire hazard though (if the leaking fluid contacts a hot engine part) and so you should have the leak repaired.
