Spring Mower Maintenance

After 6 months of cold storage, your lawn mower might need a little jump start to get out of hibernation.

Doing a Spring tune-up is not only good for the performance of your mower but it also helps keep your equipment running smoothly.

Every 3,000 miles you need an oil change on your car. Likewise, it's important to change your lawn mower oil every mowing season.

Another maintenance procedure is replacing the spark plugs on your mower. After a full summer of mowing they can get pretty beat up.

To keep your lawn mower running in top form, you will also want to replace your air filter. It's important to have a clean air filter so particulates like dust and mold don't damage your engine.

The last thing you'll need to do is put a container of fuel stabilizer in your gas tank. This prevents gas from clogging the tank or fuel lines and promotes quicker engine starting.

You can buy it online at our site, and we'll ship it directly to your door.

Since you need to tune your lawn mower annually, buy several at once and reduce the shipping costs.
