As summer fades into fall, it is a good time to start thinking about how to wind down your season. Most people just shut their lawn mower off, push it in the garage and then forget about it until next spring.

Bad idea. After the season is over, this is the best time to prepare your lawn mower or other outdoor power equipment for next year.

It is time to clean and tune the machine and treat the fuel with stabilizer or better yet to run it completely out of gas. One important reason to do your maintenance at the end of the year is that if your machine develops a problem in the spring, you won’t have to wait in a long line of other people who are in the same boat as you.

You were wise and took yours to the shop months ahead and now it is ready to go when the chores need done outside come springtime.

At Mark The Mechanic, we prepare a machine for winter by doing a tune-up on it, sharpen any blades, scrape the deck, check the drive, fuel system, electrical, belts and anything else on that machine. We can treat the fuel or remove it and let the engine run out of fuel.

By preparing for the season early, you will be a step ahead of the game and will not have to worry about if your mower will not be fixed for weeks.

Call us to schedule your outdoor power equipment for storage when your season has come to and end. 304-395-3330
