Be Weather Ready with your Lawn Tractor, Snow Blower, Generator, Mower, and Chain Saw
Small engines provide the world with a host of services to make things easier for both residential and commercial entities to maintain or repair our properties, buildings or other valuables such as roads, forest products, etc. Maintenance is the key to insuring the services small engine powered equipment provides are around for a long time.
The technical side of maintaining a small engine that powers your equipment can be complex or manageable and you are empowered with that choice. The manageable part of that statement is that if you maintain your small engine product, that will serve you best and provide a long, productive life. The complex side of that statement is that if you do not maintain, it will be costly to repair and maintain and premature failure will result of your valuable investment. Maintenance is many things. Let me stress that. Does it make sense to leave a push mower or lawn tractor or snow blower outside in the elements after paying possibly thousands of dollars for it? The answer is no. With that comes water from rain going into the gas tank and then the carburetor. But you feel like that's ok and your a hero because it started to make your weekly cutting of grass. With that, you just ingested the water into the carburetor and imminent failure will result which will be costly. The aforementioned water also was induced into your tractor mower blade spindles, belts, front wheel bearings, etc. The point is that if you cannot afford housing for your investment, at least buy a tarp for $8.99.
So many times, customers tell me that they change the oil in their Lawn Tractor once a year and their happy and proud of that and that's good. And with that comment, I'm not looking for more work but that truly is not enough to protect your investment. It doesn't matter what engine you have that powers your equipment, it turns 2000 - 3000 RPM'S (revolutions per minute) in summer heat and ingests dirt along the way from the activity and air. If you have time, just take a look at our "Whats Wrong Photo Gallery" and see the incredible images that I have taken and what I found wrong with the small engine that you count on so many times. Maintenance is the key and it starts with the owner.
