Maintain Your Garden

Keeping your lawn clean and healthy is crucial in maintaining your garden’s aesthetics. You must be able to regularly water and mow the grass. What is a better way to trim the lawn with a ride on mower?

For your ride on mower to function at its best, you must be able to keep the best condition zero turn mower, too. Here’s how you do it:

Before you start mowing, disconnect the battery or spark plug wires. Inspect and tighten any loose fasteners.
Inspect for damaged shields and deflectors. If any is worn out or damaged, replace them.
Remove debris especially around fuel and oil fill areas. Remember to change the oil and oil filter after several mowing sessions and end of every season.
Check the fuel oil and levels.
After completing the cleaning and inspection, you can reconnect the battery or spark plugs.
Check if tires are properly inflated.
When you finish mowing, disconnect the battery and brush off debris, engine, and deck.
Lubricate the mower, and inspect the air filter. If it is dirty, replace it.
Check the blades. If bent or broken, you should replace them.

In winter, it’s best to remember the following:

Drain all gasoline in the tank. Gas degrades during winter and goes stale over time. Keeping it in the mower causes corrosion and clogs engine carburetors.
It is good to clean debris and dirt of your engine oil for proper lubrication during or at the beginning of spring.
Clean off the dirt and grass on the blades. If you don’t do so, dirt will build up and ruin blade’s quality.
Store the mower in a cool and dry place away from the outdoors to avoid damages. Store in the garage covered with a trap.
Remove the battery to prevent corrosion of the terminals and battery during a resting period of winter.
