How to Locate the Model Number on your Lawn Mower
Finding replacement parts for your lawn mower, lawn tractor, or zero turn is much easier when you know the model number of your specific machine.

Walk-Behind Mowers - Model information is typically located on the mower deck.
Riding Mowers - Model information is usually located under the operator's seat or on the frame.
Zero Turns - Model information may be located under the seat, on the frame near the wheels, or on the rear frame near the engine.

Lawn Mower Tune-Up Checklist
Common tune-up procedures for a lawn mower including replacing/cleaning the air filter, spark plug, changing the oil, installing sharp mower blades, cleaning the deck, and other quick maintenance tasks. Even if you performed these tasks at the end of the mowing season, it doesn't hurt to double check them in the spring, just in case you overlooked something.
Also, your mower has been sitting in storage for a few months, where dust, dirt, and even rodents may find their way into the crevices of the unit. This is why cleaning the deck and inspecting underneath covers is important, so they'll be no surprises when you go to start the engine.
