Cleaning Up Those Blades

The blades of your mower are an essential part of the machine. When winter is coming and the mowing season is over, it's time to inspect the blades and get them cleaned up. It's recommended that you do this at the end of every season, but especially before winter so that the blades are ready come springtime.

You'll want to inspect the blades for any nicks, breaks, and rust. Be sure to sharpen them as well so that they're ready to cut when the time comes. Doing this will ensure your mower is healthy and your lawn is cut correctly.

Don't Forget To Clean The Mower

While you have the mower at hand, take the time to clean the undercarriage and the engine parts, such as fuel and oil tanks. Be sure to clean the mower, removing grass and mud that could otherwise impede proper functioning. Also be sure to drain the fuel tank and fuel lines, to prevent gasoline from clogging up.

Proper Storage

Once all of your mowing is said and done and the machine is properly cleaned up for winter, it's time to put it away. If you have enough room in your garage, feel free to store it in the corner away or low-traffic areas. This way, you'll have it out of the way and won't risk injuring yourself or damaging it.

If you have a shed, that's perfect too. Just be sure to store it in a covered area where it won't be prone to rusting or any sort of damage. Leaving the mower out in the elements will practically guarantee that you won't have a mower to work with when the winter season is over.
