Why Winter Commercial Lawn Mower Maintenance Matters

To provide your customers with quality lawn care services, you must keep your equipment well maintained. Commercial law mower maintenance keeps your mower clean, in great condition, and running efficiently season after season. Since winter is slower for lawn care companies, it’s the perfect time to prepare the mower for spring.  

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

Commercial Lawn Mower Maintenance Extends Its Lifespan

All mowers endure their fair share of wear and tear, and commercial mowers are certainly no exception. While mowers don’t last forever, you shouldn’t have to shell out money every few years for a new one. 

If you’ve been in this cycle, you’re losing money. The good news is that with regular maintenance, it’s possible to get ten years or more out of your mower. 

Save Money On Commercial Lawn Mower Repair

Neglecting maintenance services puts your business at risk of not being there for your customers. Even if you have a fleet of lawnmowers, all it takes is for one mower to be out of service to affect your business’s productivity and bottom line. When you get delayed cutting customers’ lawns because the mower is in the shop, you lose money in two ways. 

First, you’re spending money on repairs that could’ve been avoided. Replacing a motor is much more expensive than having the oil changed, the carburetor cleaned, or the air filter replaced during a maintenance service.

The other way you lose money is from lost business. You can’t bill your customers for services not performed. If this happens often, customers might decide to take their business elsewhere. Customers’ lawns can’t wait days or weeks to get cut. 

Commercial Mower Maintenance Keeps You in Business

There’s no good excuse not to invest in professional mower maintenance. It’s cheaper than making repairs or replacing commercial equipment, and it ensures that you always show up for your customers. 

Services performed during routine commercial mower maintenance include: 

  • Emptying the fuel tank and refilling it with fresh gas
  • Changing the oil
  • Replacing the air filter
  • Changing the spark plugs
  • Cleaning the undercarriage
  • Sharpening the blades
  • Replacing bad tires

When having your commercial lawn equipment serviced, you want to take it to professionals who have experience working your mower’s model. Each manufacturer has different recommendations for servicing to deliver high-quality results and protect the mower’s engine and its components.

Winter Tune-up Special

Stay on Top of Mower Maintenance During Peak Times

Winter maintenance specials like the ones provided by Suburban Lawn Equipment make it convenient and affordable to prepare your commercial mower for spring, but don’t forget to keep on top of maintenance throughout the mowing season. Commercial lawn mower maintenance is something that should happen in-season too. Daily, weekly, and monthly maintenance and safety services vary depending on the mower. 

Refer to your mower’s owner’s manual, or better yet, trust the professionals to make sure your equipment gets the tune-ups it needs according to schedule. Staying on top of maintenance is good for business and keeps your business on track to profit more this year.

How to Winterize & Store Commercial Lawn Mowers

WINTERIZING YOUR COMMERCIAL LAWN MOWER

Commercial Lawn Mowers take a beating and keep showing up to work day after day, give them the TLC they deserve to be ready to get back to work come spring. Check out these steps to make sure your mower gets properly stored for the winter months ahead.

CLEAN THE MOWER TOP & BOTTOM

Clean underside removing all debris; use a stick or brush, NOT hands, when cleaning blades.

Clean the mower, thoroughly brush off leaves, grass and other debris. Use a clean damp cloth to wipe it down. Remove spark plug prior to ANY maintenance.

REMOVE & STORE BATTERY SAFELY

Remove the Battery: wipe battery and clean terminal with metal brush or terminal cleaner. Store it in a cool and dry location away from furnace, water heater or gas cans.

ADD FUEL STABILIZER TO THE GAS TANK

Add a fuel stabilizer eliminating need to drain fuel. Storing mower with a full tank stops moisture from condensing and forming rust that could clog the carburetor.

STORE MOWER IN PROTECTED SPACE FOR WINTER MONTHS

Store the mower in a protected dry space such as a garage or shed away from water heater, furnace or any gas appliances.

Your lawn mower has served you faithfully all season, give it proper rest for the winter months ahead to ensure a happy reunion once things start greening up in spring.

How To Choose The Perfect Leaf Blower

How To Choose the Perfect Leaf Blower

Need a leaf blower for this Fall Season but are not sure what kind to buy? We’ve got you covered. Here is everything you need to know about each type of leaf blower. Read to see how you can choose the perfect leaf blower for your needs.

Types of Leaf Blowers

Handheld Leaf Blowers

Handheld blowers are lightweight, maneuver easily, and take up minimal storage space. Held comfortably with one hand, handheld blowers are the most popular option among homeowners and are great for small jobs that don’t require massive amounts of blowing power. Their power can typically handle light snow, sawdust, and dry leaves.

Backpack Leaf Blowers

With backpack blowers, the motor sits in a harness strapped to the user’s back, making it more comfortable and less taxing on the user’s arm. They are slightly larger than your average handheld blower, so keep that in mind when it comes to storage. Backpack blowers are more powerful and have longer run times than handheld blowers, making them perfect for medium-large scale jobs that require blowing for long periods of time. Their power can typically handle wet leaves, small rocks, and metal shavings.

Walk-Behind Leaf Blowers

The largest and most powerful option of blowers are walk-behind blowers. Great for large scale, professional jobs, these blowers are powerful enough to blow away cardboard, piles of leaves, and other trash. Most favorable to landscaping professionals, walk-behind blowers are the least physically exacting and the biggest in terms of storage. 

Leaf Blower Fuel Types

Battery

Battery-operated blowers are as easy as clicking in the battery and blowing away. This fuel type (or lack thereof) is most popular among first-time-blower buyers. It is also great for those that own batteries from the same brand of machines because they are normally interchangeable. With little to no maintenance necessary, the only real cons to a battery-operated leaf blower is it’s limited power and run time.

Corded

A step up in run time from the battery-operated blowers, a corded leaf blower is a great option for those that want the ease of a battery-operated blower but with more power. Corded blowers are lightweight with great output. But, the very thing that gives it more power (the cord) is also what makes it less desirable. The cord can get in the way or even catch on the machine and limits the distance you can travel with your blower.

Gas

The most powerful type of blower is going to be your gas-fueled leaf blower. Gas blowers are perfect for landscaping companies or homeowners with a large space to cover. There are some that require an oil/gas blend and others that run on gas alone. Luckily, we sell premixed oil/gas blends with ratios specific to your machine so that you can take the guesswork out of filling your blower. 

With gas blowers, keep in mind that they require the most maintenance, are the loudest of all blowers, and you of course, need to purchase gas.

Leaf Blower Features

CFM

CFM means Cubic Feet per Minute. CFM is the volume of air coming out of the leaf blower, which also translates to how far the blower will push the leaves. People like to talk about wind speed, but it’s really the CFM that matters. 

MPH

MPH is the Miles Per Hour, which measures how fast the air is moving out of the mower. Having a blower with a higher MPH will allow you to complete an entire job quicker due to its power.

A blower with a high CFM will allow you to blow more leaves, whereas a blower with a high MPH will blow away larger debris. If you have to choose one over the other, it’s best to choose a blower with a higher CFM.

The Right Leaf Blower For You

For homeowners with a small yard, deck or patio, a battery or corded-handheld leaf blower will probably suit you best. For those with a medium-large space to cover with lots of debris to blow, either a battery or gas-powered-backpack leaf blower would be optimal. And lastly, large scale or professional landscaping projects would benefit most from investing in a walk-behind leaf blower, which would typically only run on gas. 

Regardless of the type of leaf blower you need for this autumn season, we’ve got it here waiting for you at Suburban Lawn & Equipment. Stop in to pick out the perfect blower for you!

Avoid These 6 Landscaping Mistakes

Avoid These 6 Landscaping Mistakes

Mistakes in the landscaping business can prove to be time consuming and costly. These 6 landscaping mistakes are made more often than you would imagine. Avoid these mistakes and use our tips to avoid mulchy messes and cutting catastrophes on your next project!

Starting Without A Plan

The art form of planning and designing a landscape is unique because you not only take into account the size, colors, textures, and proportions of the project, but also it’s functionality. Failing to start your landscaping project with a plan can lead to an unattractive end result that doesn’t function properly, won’t last long enough, or even goes over budget.

Using The Wrong Tools

Using the right tools for a project can make all the difference when it comes to saving timing and keeping you and your team safe.

Match your tools to your project. The size of the job may influence the size and type of tools used, this goes for handheld tools and power equipment. Make sure to keep your tools clean and organized. For advice on tools and when to use them, speak to one of our equipment specialists.

 Cutting Grass Too Short

Grass length should change depending on the time of year. In the summer, grass requires more shade so that it doesn’t get burnt to a crisp. During these warmer months, leave the grass a little longer so that the blades can shade the soil and the water doesn’t evaporate so fast. During the colder months, grass should be cut shorter so that sunlight can reach the soil.

(Bonus tip: It’s a myth that if you cut your grass shorter, you won’t have to mow it as often).

Inappropriate Irrigation Systems

A project’s irrigation system ties back into the design of the project. Each plant requires different watering needs, so installing the appropriate irrigation system will save you a huge headache. Sprinkler set-ups and irrigation can tend to be an eye-sore if not done thoughtfully, so make sure to plan for this ahead of time when designing the landscape.

Forgetting About Wildlife

The type of plants and flowers used in your landscaping project can either attract or repel outside wildlife. When planning a project or discussing a project with your client, make sure to ask what critters they’d like to avoid. Deer can be attracted to beautiful flowers, so it couldn’t hurt to add some bitter-tasting plants to the bunch. Once they give those a try, they are sure to keep away from that yard.

Not Recycling

As most landscapers know, large projects can produce large amounts of waste. Rather than trashing branches, clippings, and other recyclable materials, try renting or investing in a quality shredder that can turn that waste into something useful. These debris can be turned into mulch, fertilizers, or compost. Plus, most compost piles can easily be hidden into a landscape.

Now that you know the most common landscaping mistakes and how to avoid them, your lawn care business can have the confidence that your next landscaping project will come out on top.
