Tip & How-To about Garden
All you out there with lawn and garden tools that have gas motors, just wanted to remind you that they need to be winterized. In the spring we dont want to have problems with our equipment stalling, not starting, or even blowing up.When I know I wont be using my equipment for months at a time I do the following to make sure my equipment will remain in good working order for years to come without me becoming frustrated after they have been stored and then cause me time and trouble by not starting or creating other issues and wasting my time.To winterize 1st drain all the fuel from the tank and pull/crank motor till all old gas is out of line and replace fuel filter if possible.2nd drain oil if possible3rd remove oil filter if it has one4th install new oil filte5th re install oil plugBut DO NOT add oil till NEW season6th make sure gas bulbs are lubricated so they will not crackMake sure all debris is removed and all screws are secure.This is the basics for more in depth information you should always read the OWNERS manual.Next year when you are ready all you need to do is add oil, gas/gas-oil mixture and your set for the season for the most part.
