Lawn Mower Annual Spring Maintenance Tips

Lawn Mower Annual Spring Maintenance TipsMany homeowners don’t bother with lawnmower annual spring maintenance. They just pull their lawnmower out of the garage, add some fuel to the tank and pull on the starter cord. In most cases, after a few pulls on the starter chord the engine coughs and starts. It may run rough for a little while, but then once new gasoline gets into the engine it smooths out and runs well. You might even get away with this for several years. Eventually, the engine will not start at all and will require a complete overhaul. The engine oil is black. The carburetor is gummed up. If you want many years of use from your lawnmower, complete a lawn mower annual spring maintenance every year.
