3 Top Lawn Mower Tips

  1. Keep Mower Blades Sharp: Maintaining your lawn mower is not only about keeping your lawn healthy but protecting your investment. Sharp mower blades give your lawn a nice clean cut. You can tear the grass and leave it vulnerable to disease and pests if you mow with dull blades.
  2. Gas Mower Oil Change: You can prolong the life of your lawn mower by changing out the motor oil annually. This keeps your motor healthy and clean.
  3. Clean Your Lawn Mower: Clean your mower after 3-4 uses. Scrap away grime and stuck on grass/dirt. Use a light oil on and around the wheels and gears to keep things running smoothly.
