How To Properly Use A Honda Generator

Better to be safe than sorry. Don’t let the power outage catch you off guard, when you’re supposed to be enjoying summer! At Suburban Lawn Equipment in Delaware, we encourage our customers to purchase Honda outdoor power equipment, and make sure they all know and understand how to properly use a Honda Generator.

How To Properly Use A Honda Generator

To keep you and your family safe during power shortage, follow these 5 tips from Delaware’s Outdoor Power Equipment Experts:

  1. Read the manual. Following the manufacturer’s instructions is key. It’s a simple way to avoid hazardous situations and a guarantee to getting the most out of the generator.
  2. Use Honda Generators outside your home or business. It’s important to be aware of dangerous toxins around us, like carbon monoxide (CO). To make sure that your generator is not emitting toxins inside your home, install a battery operated CO alarm as an extra safety net.
  3. Use a heavy-duty extension cord for outdoors. Avoid extension cords with visible wires.
  4. Do not use Honda Generator in the rain. If so, you’re putting yourself in danger of shock or electrocution. It’s better to wait until rain stops, but if it’s absolutely necessary to use a generator, do your best to shield it from moisture.
  5. Never refuel a generator when it’s on. Cool it down first. It’s easy to cause a fire when gasoline or other flammable liquid spills onto a hot surface.

Should you have more questions or any concerns regarding how to use any Honda outdoor power equipment, contact us today.

Choosing a commercial lawn mower is a big decision and having equipment that is reliable and durable is important when running a lawn care business. Here are a few things to consider when choosing your commercial lawn care equipment:

Dealer support …

This first for a reason … even the most reliable mowers require a repair here or there. Even if you are mechanically inclined, it’s not worth having a mower if you can’t get parts for it!

 Get something you enjoy …

You are going to spend hours on your mower … zero turn rider and surfer mowers are easier on your joints and allow you to finish the job faster!

Resaleability

If you want to hold onto a mower for the duration of its warrantee … go with a name brand for resale purposes.

Buy Quality …

You get what you pay for … you could end up paying more in repairs in the long run when you buy a lower end product.

Mower Maintenance …

Most problems with mowers are attributed to the lack of maintenance. Before each use: check oil level and clean the engine blower screen. After 25 hours: clean air filter, sharpen blades, check tire inflation, battery and belts. After 50 hours: change engine oil. Annually: change fuel filter, spark plug, and oil filter. There will be less problems to troubleshoot if you keep up with maintenance.

3 Reasons a Commercial Zero Turn Mower Might be Right for Your Delaware Landscaping Business

3 Reasons a Commercial Zero Turn Mower Might be Right for Your Delaware Landscaping Business

 

Shopping for a zero turn mower is similar to shopping for a car; there are luxury and economy models, both get you from point A to point B and all zero turning radius (ZTR) lawn mowers cut grass. They just do it with a different degree of comfort and quality.

When it comes to landscaping, time is money. The faster you get one job done, the sooner you can move onto the next one. Commercial ZTR mowers are more comfortable and make you more money.

Comparison Chart 

High Performance Engine: The fastest mowers on the market, commercial zero turns will zip across the grass at speeds up to 13 miles per hour (mph). These mowers are powered by high-performance Kawasaki or Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engines. Considered some of the best lawn mower engines available, these reliable powerhouses have up to 30 horsepower (HP) of grass devouring strength.

Full-Suspension: When mowing all day, you want as comfortable a ride as possible. Look for a commercial zero turn mower with full-suspension for the smoothest ride.  Full suspension isn’t just good for the operator, it actually allows the mower to cut better. With full-suspension, the mower will follow the contours of the lawn for the most consistent cut. The reduced shock require less repairs.

Reviews

Mowing Deck: It’s not all about size, it’s how you use it… Sure a 61″ deck is more than 5 feet

of cutting girth, but the decks on commercial zero turns are built with performance features not found elsewhere. Look for decks with sloped fronts, which push the grass up, resulting in a more consistent cut. Some decks on commercial ZTR mowers include a revolutionary cutting system that allows for superior airflow discharge and enhanced cut quality.
