Has mowing the lawn become just an inconvenient chore you dread every week or so?
Remember when it used to be fun? Or maybe it was only worth it as a kid when the neighbor would hand over a crisp $5 bill for an hour’s work.
Well here are three ways you can get a kick out of mowing, so it’s always something to look forward to every time you step out on the lawn.
Standing in your driveway at 7 A.M. with a foot of snow on the ground, and a wind chill below zero, is the last place you want to finally figure out how to start your new snow blower.
So here’s an easy cheat sheet to help you get your snow blower fired up when you need it most.
There’s nothing worse than getting a surprise jolt when you snag a crack in the sidewalk, right?
From gravel to asphalt and concrete, a good pair of skid shoes guides your snow blower over those cracks and bumps.
Watch our video on how to replace a broken shear pin on an Ariens two stage snow blower.
Replacing a dirty or damaged air filter will prevent dust, dirt and debris from entering the carburetor and internal parts of your engine, prolonging the life of your engine.
This video shows you how to easily replace the air filter on a Husqvarna walk behind lawn mower.
The safest way to remove the blade on your lawn mower is to use a blade lock tool.
This device easily clamps onto the side of the mower deck to prevent the blade from slipping and rotating as you remove and install a new mower blade. This video shows you how a blade lock tool works.
Ethanol Fuel (E10) is everywhere! Now almost all gasoline contains this blend of 90% gas and 10% ethanol.
The positive side of Ethanol fuel is that it reduces exhaust emissions and helps reduce the dependence on foreign oil because it’s a renewable resource (corn-based).
For automobiles like cars, E10 won’t do much harm, except reduce your gas mileage by a few mpgs (as some claim).
But for Outdoor Power Equipment, ethanol fuel can be a damaging and costly issue, if NOT Used Properly!
