How to Winterize Your Lawn Mower
Who wants the satisfaction of starting their mower up in the spring without any trouble? If so, you'll want to ensure you properly winterize
your lawn mower this year. Here's a short list to help you prepare your mower for storage.
- fuel stabilizer
- replacement parts (spark plug, filters)
- deck cleaning tool
- lawn mower cover
Drain the Gas Tank
Add a fuel stabilizer to the remaining fuel in the tank (or add a small amount), start the mower and run the tank empty. This will distribute the stabilizer throughout the fuel system to help clean and ensure old fuel doesn't remain in your equipment. Don't forget to drain the carburetor fuel bowl too, since a small amount of gas may remain inside the carburetor. Read more about the damaging effects of ethanol gas »
Change the Oil
If you haven't changed the oil recently, change it now! Don't leave old,dirty, contaminated oil in your mower all winter long. Change it now, so you don't have to worry about performing the task in the spring.
Replace Worn Out / Damaged Parts
Check the spark plug, air filter, belts, blades, etc. Replace the necessary part if you see signs of excessive wear or any sort of damage.
Scrape caked on grass from the mower deck, plus wipe off dirt and grease from the deck and around the engine. This will help prevent premature rust from forming or deteriorating the paint.
Throwing a cover over your mower isn't just to prevent dirt and dust from collecting on the surface. It can also prevent small rodents from making a home of your mower and chewing away at rubber lines and paper filters.
