It’s that time of year again! The grass is turning green, the trees and shrubs are beginning to bud, and the temperatures are slowly climbing, and there’s more rain in the forecast. If you’re like most homeowners, you probably mow your own lawn, and this means preparing your lawn mower for the grass cutting season. Here are some tips:
2) Clean the undercarriage. You’ll want to remove caked-on grass clippings and other debris to clear passage to the discharge chute so that you don’t leave clippings behind that couldn’t make it into the bag.
3) Sharpen/replace the cutting blade. Over time, your blade may become dull, and a sharp blade ensures an even cut. If you cannot sharpen the blade, now is the time to replace it.
4) Replace the spark plug. You’ll want to ensure that your mower starts easily and runs cleaner.
5) Change the oil. Just like on a car or motorcycle, engine oil must be replaced on a regular basis, and once-a-year is about right for any residentially-owned lawn mower.
