Updated: Apr 4, 2021
Let's face it, it has been a cold and boring winter but spring is just around the corner. Here at Humphreys we believe that there is no substitution for preparation. Come Spring there are going to be a lot of lawn mower owners who start up their mower, find something wrong and wait in line at a lawn mower repair shop (like ours) for someone to fix it. Naturally that is all done on a first come first serve basis, but why not get a jump on the line now?
Below is a list of 20 things you need to check before you start mowing in spring.
Change Oil & Filter
Change or Clean Air Filter
Change Fuel Filter
Check Throttle & Choke Cables (Oil if Necessary)
Sharpen or Replace Blades if Necessary
Check all Idler Pulleys
Check Spindle housing for Corrosion
Hydro Fluid (1st 100 hrs then every 400hrs)
Check Battery & Cables
Clean Out Under Mower Deck
Check Wheel Bearings
Check Ignition & Change the Plug
Check Belts & Hydro Belt and Linkage
