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.
