Episode #9 | Original Air Date: March 12, 2020
With spring approaching this is the perfect time to give your mower a tune-up. Like a car, a well-maintained lawnmower uses less gas, has cleaner exhaust, and will last longer.
For best performance, your tune-up should take place after about 25 hours of use. Check the owner's manual for advice and instructions.
Start with an oil and oil filter change. Remember to dispose of used oil correctly.
You'll also want to change the spark plugs. New spark plugs will ensure that your mower engine will start when you need it to.
Clean or replace the air filter. And always remember to keep your mower blade sharp!
