Kobalt 80v Lawn Mower
I get 20-25 minutes per battery charge depending on the length of the grass. The quick charger charges a battery in about 30 minutes, so I can just about cycle them indefinitely. My ~1/3 acre yard typically takes 2-3 batteries to finish in about an hour.
I did have one of the batteries fail within the 3-year warranty period, and Kobalt support sent me a new one without any issues.
Wobbly Wheel Problems
As I prepared to mow my lawn last weekend, I noticed one of the rear wheels was very wobbly.
No problem, I thought, something just needs to be tightened. Turns out, this model does not have any nuts/bolts to tighten, just two bearings in each wheel. One of the bearing was completely destroyed, and the other one was rapidly failing.
While neither Lowe’s nor Kobalt support sells bearings, replacement ones can be found on Amazon or Ebay. I purchased a set of four from Amazon.
The wheel can be removed by popping off the plastic cover in the center, removing the cotter pin, and sliding the wheel off the bolt. There are two bearings on each wheel. Pry the bad bearing(s) from either side of the center of the wheel and pop in the new one(s).
After replacing them, my wheel had no wobble at all, and I still have two extra bearings in case any of them fail again in the future.
How to Grease the Wheel Bearings on a Zero Turn Rider
Your zero turn rider is designed for heavy duty cutting tasks. The hard work your mower is exposed to requires regular maintenance to ensure a long and reliable service life. Part of this maintenance includes greasing the wheel bearings on the front of your mower. This maintenance is easy to forget but it’s important. You should lubricate the bearings one to two times each mowing season to protect them from wear and keep them spinning smoothly. Here’s how to grease the wheel bearings on your zero turn rider.
Before performing any maintenance on your lawn mower, refer to your owner’s manual for maintenance instructions and safety information.
Park your lawn mower on a level surface, stop the engine, and remove the ignition key. Move to the front of your mower and locate the grease fittings on the outside hub of the caster wheels. These fittings, also referred to as zerks, make it easy to apply grease to the wheels internal bearings.
Start by cleaning the fitting on the wheels with a rag. Remove any grass, dirt or debris that could interfere with greasing the wheel bearings. Make sure the spring-loaded bearing ball inside the inlet is visible and free to move.
Attach the nozzle on the end of the grease gun to the fitting on one of the caster wheels. Pump grease into the fitting until you see a little bit of grease ooze out of the wheel bearing. Use your rag to wipe away excess grease that oozes out to prevent the accumulation of dirt and debris. Move to the other front wheel and grease the wheel bearing. When complete, again wipe excess grease with a rag.
You may never think about it, but the caster wheels in the front of your zero turn riders undergo a real workout, which means they need to undergo maintenance as well. Don’t forget to factor your wheel bearings into your lawn mower maintenance checklist. No matter how small it may seem, performing maintenance on your wheel bearings plays a huge role in the performance of your equipment.

Things to Consider when Looking for Walk Behind Lawn Mower Wheels
Understanding the technical details of your walk behind lawn mower wheels will help you determine which wheel suits your specific purposes. This knowledge also comes in handy when replacing the wheels of old lawn mowers. In this blog, we will list out what you should be looking for in a wheel when it comes to sourcing a new wheel or finding a replacement wheel.
Understanding Wheel Tread Bore Options of Walk Behind Lawn Mower Wheels
The outermost part of the tire that comes in contact with the lawn is called the tread. Walk behind lawn mower wheels almost always have some kind of tread which is designed to optimize functionality and improved or differentiate aesthetics.
The wheel tread improves functionality and enhances stability to the application by providing the right amount of traction. The tread is designed to allow water to seep through easily underneath the tire. It also reduces any noise occurring between the wheel and surface. CEW walk behind lawn mower wheels are designed to ensure durability, stability, and ease of use.
Walk behind mower wheel tread can help facilitate overall design and branding as well. The options are endless when talking about tread designs and patterns. CEW’s engineers can help you determine if an existing tread design is adequate or if a custom tread pattern is needed.
Attention should also be paid to more importance aspects like bore configurations. The wheel bore is the center of the wheel hub where the axle attaches. Walk behind mowers typically include both idle and drive wheels. The idle wheel is normally located in the rear and is free spinning while the drive wheel is typically in the front and includes some kind of gears. Mold in gears or attached (heat staked or bolted on) are the most common drive wheel styles.
The use of ball bearings makes rolling easier. In some cases, a powdered metal sleeve can replace a ball bearing, reduce costs, and achieve similar characteristics. The easier the wheel rolls, the less effort the user must expel to operate. Standard thru bore configurations can also be sufficient in certain circumstances.
Importance of Wheel Sizes :
Large rear wheels can be used to make a walk behind mower easier to maneuver. Typical rear wheel sizes can range from 7″ to 12″, and typical front wheel size ranges between 6″ to 9″. The most common bore diameters sized are 3/8”, 1/2”, and 5/8”. Typical push mower tread widths are 1.5″, 1.75″, and 2″ wide.
