Keeping your machine in a good condition is significant, as well as in order to maintain the manufacturer warranty.
It is also important and helpful to make sure that all garden machinery is ready in time for the new season to come. In the winter season when machines have a lengthy downtime, usually there are issues when they need to be started again.
We do not advise our customers to store the mowers with a partially full tank of fuel. Ethanol in the fuel begins to degrade or stiffen plastic and rubber parts and attracts moisture, which can cause the tank to rust. It can take as little as 30 days for gasoline to become “stale,” gumming up the fuel system and carburettor. After months, it can thicken into what technicians call “varnish.” Stale gas is the primary suspect when a mower won’t start.
Four-stroke engines require an oil change, especially if the oil is old, contaminated, or dark black. You can consult with our technicians or the owner’s manual for directions, the type of oil to use, and the proper amount. However, changing the oil is, of course, is included in our service program.
Grass easily builds up under mower decks. A good cleaning will help prevent corrosion. Cleaning is included in our Full-Service Program (Only). Subsequently, in our workshop, we apply lubricators or wax to help prevent future build-up.
Spark plugs are designed to be used for about 100 hours of mowing and should only need to be replaced every year. New spark plugs improve start-up and performance and they’re inexpensive. It’s so easy, why not change it annually? We suggest to our customers to remove the spark plug until spring.
A clogged air filter can be one of the main culprits if you have problems starting your mower in spring. A clean filter provides steady air flow to help the engine burn gas more efficiently. The changing or the maintenance of air filters is part of our service programs.
Generally, mower’s blade has had a tough season cutting the lawn. It has also survived the adversity of stones, rocks, roots, branches, and all the stuff that lurks in lawns waiting for an unsuspecting mower. Dull blades tear and damage blades of grass making them more prone to disease and desiccation—drying out. In an ideal world, the blade should be sharpened 2–3 times a year. If this is not something kept up, we advise our customers to do it before winter.
In addition to that, the manufacturer’s warranties are conditional on an annual service being carried out.
Most warranties are only valid if the machinery is looked after and serviced in accordance with the instructions, so may be void if the servicing is not up to date and documented.
Please remember, that a manufacturer’s Warranty covers the machine and its components against faulty parts and/or workmanship. Parts are not covered for wear, so items such as belts and blades are generally excluded from warranty.
Also please be aware that when using your machine in certain conditions it will require additional servicing or maintenance as recommended in your user manual.
