Murray is an international power equipment company that specialises in the manufacture of walk-behind mowers and lawn tractors. The company produces mowers for many markets, including those of the U.S. Murray mower parts are all of the things that make the mower move and work, from the engine and carburettor to the wheels and the blade. Spare parts for Murray mowers are available for purchase through authorised dealers, and manuals for products are on the official Murray website.

Engine

Murray lawnmowers use Briggs & Stratton engines. Briggs & Stratton is a company that specialises in the manufacture of engines for power equipment like walk-behind mowers, lawn tractors and snowblowers. The exact model of engine is contingent upon the model of Murray mower. Briggs & Stratton engines are measured by displacement and torque. Displacement is a measurement of the volume of air displaced by all of an engine's cylinders during one full rise and fall. Torque is a measure of how much power an engine creates.

Working Parts

Murray mower working parts are complex machine parts that contribute to the operation of the mower. Such parts include the carburettor, which insures the correct admixture of air and oil in a mower's engine, and the blades, which when turned perform the actual cutting. Blades are connected to Murray mower engines directly by pulleys and screws that translate the rotational power of the engine's torque to the blades. On riding mowers and self-propelled Murray mowers, the transaxle translates the power supplied to the front wheels by the mower's engine to the back wheels so that they turn in unison.

Chassis and Wheels

Chassis is a fancy word for the body of a mower. On walk-behind mowers there isn't much chassis to speak of other than the cutting deck, which is the central metal piece of the mower on top of which is the engine and below which are the blades. A hole in the cutting deck allows the engine to connect directly to the blades. On riding Murray mowers the chassis is the body that houses the engine and from which the cutting deck is suspended. Wheels attach to the chassis of a walk-behind mower directly and to the chassis of a riding mower through the drive train, a system that connects the wheels, engine and steering wheel.

Handles and Controls

Walk-behind Murray mowers employ a system of handles that is used to advance the unit and stop it if needed. Standard push mowers have one simple handle used to push the mower forward and stop it. Self-propelled walk-behind Murray mowers have a control bar that, when squeezed, accelerates the unit, and, when released, stops the unit. Handle and control bars are connected to a back-mounted grass bag on applicable models. Driving Murray mowers have steering wheels and pedals that accelerate and stop the mower much like those of a car.

Other Parts

Major working parts are nothing without the minor static parts affixing them to one another. Such parts on Murray mowers include screws, bolts, frames, washers, nuts, gaskets, belts, wires and plates.
