Extra Insider Secrets
Before storing a mower for the winter run it until the gas tank is empty. Disconnect the gas line and, if possible, lift off or unscrew the gas tank and clean it by putting half a cup of fresh gas inside and swishing it vigorously. Do not store gasoline in any container over the winter; always use fresh gas in the spring.
Parts for popular mowers are available at hardware and yard supplies shops. And you won’t pay a repair shop’s markup to get them.
