Storing the lawnmower
Many of us are still mowing the lawn – or the leaves – but when you’re ready to put it away for the winter:
Run the engine until it’s out of gas.
It’s a good idea to clean the mower, sharpen the blade, change the oil, lubricate the engine and clean or replace the air filter.
Store the mower in a cool, dry place. If you cover it, use cloth, because plastic can trap moisture.
