During the mowing season, typically between September and March. Try these simple tasks to help avoid trips to your local service department.
This can help save your back pocket, and avoid the aggravation of a service department during peak period.
Each month, do the following:
1. Check you oil level. Remove the dipstick and check it meets the indicator on the stick. Add oil slowly, always checking if required.
Do not over fill.
2. Check your air cleaner. If the air cleaner is covered in built up dust and fine grass debris, replace it. If not too dirty, remove and clean the pre-cleaner (if present)
The pre-cleaner is generally foam and can be cleaned easily.
3. Clean the top of your mower deck. Remove all the built up grass, sticks and debris. This can result in better belt wear and less damage to bearings.
