“Over run brake design - POOR”

★★☆☆☆

written by malembe84 on 08/07/2014

My mower has hardly done one season and the over-run brake has siezed up. i.e. the belt will slip and start to smoke.
I knew straight away what the problem was because I have had the same with the larger Flymos.
Quickest way to rectify was to remove the friction discs.
I used a Dremel tool to cut them away - no point in trying to remove the grooved pulley from the shaft as the two have plainly siezed together.
So much for safety featurers! The flippin things have a deadmans handle which is something elce which was not bothered about in the sixties, which was when I started to buy mowers!!
