Your Guide to Lawn Mower Maintenance

Your Guide to Lawn Mower Maintenance

lawn mower maintenance tipsWhether you’re riding a lawn mower or operating a manual one, you should always make sure you’re keeping your outdoor power equipment in top notch shape.

Before you store your mower away for winter, take time to perform a few lawn mower maintenance steps to ensure maximum efficiency for years to come.

Want to know what can you do to properly maintain your lawn mower? Here are some great suggestions from our service experts at Suburban Lawn Equipment in Delaware.

Lawn Mower Maintenance Tips:

  1. Check and Change the Oil. Prior to fall/winter storage, you should change the oil every 50 hours of use to prevent premature engine wear. Changing the oil filter will prevent a build-up within the engine lubrication system. Keep in mind that you should always use the recommended oil by the manufacturer for your particular lawn mower model.
  2. Replace the Air Filter. We recommend changing the air filter every 25 hours of use per season. Why? Because the air filter prevents dirt and debris from entering the carburetor and/or engine.
  3. Check the Tire Pressure. Many people forget about the tires, but it’s important to maintain a consistent amount of pressure throughout each tire. Failing to do so will result in uneven cutting leaving your lawn appearance in disarray.
  4. Sharpen the Blades. Mower blades endure a heavy amount of wear and tear throughout the season caused by rocks and branches and so forth. We recommend sharpening your lawn mower blade every season and replacing the blade every 1 to 3 years.
  5. Change the Spark Plug. This is a process that is relatively inexpensive and absolutely critical to ensure an easy start up. We recommend changing the spark every year in order to maintain your lawn mower for use.
