1. Machine care
Keep machines ready for next year by cleaning the machine and deck, repairing chipped or scratched paint and lubricating grease points.
2. Properly store
Follow proper storage steps as the end of fall approaches. Store the vehicle in a cool, dry place or, if the mower must be stored outside, cover it with waterproof material.
3. Fuel system
If you are currently using fuel stabilizer, fill the fuel tank completely. If you are not using fuel stabilizer, take the proper steps to refill fuel.
4. Engine preparation
Follow the manufacturer’s service intervals, including changing the oil and oil filter and cleaning the cooling system.
5. Monitor tires
Changing weather conditions require an extra look at tires. Be sure to increase or decrease tire pressure depending on the weather in your region.
