Good tune-ups and proper maintenance are the key to efficient mowing
As lawns once again green
up, it’s time for consumers to tune-up their outdoor power equipment. So to be
sure all lawn mowers and related equipment give top performances and run as
clean as possible, the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) has a few
suggestions for smart owners:
Refer to your owners
manual for proper tune-up instructions for your specific equipment.
Change the spark plug if
Clean or replace the air
Check safety devices to
ensure that they are attached and working.
Change the engine oil.
Fill the gas tank
carefully to avoid spilling.
If you are not
comfortable doing your own tune-ups, contact your nearest outdoor power
equipment service dealer.
And for tune-up information specific to different types of equipment, there’s seasonal maintenance calendar posted on Cyberlawn, OPEI's home page on the Internet. Remember: be good to your outdoor power equipment, and it will be good to you.
