Autumns impending arrival signals the end of summer lawn care and honey-do tasks. We know that some of you are breathing a happy sign of relief over that. However, it also marks the time when homeowners must prepare their lawn equipment for winter hibernation. And that means there will be a bit more work in store for the weary. This is especially the case for those who use riding lawn mowers.
Before the snow flies, youll need to thoroughly clean the riding lawn mower and extract the battery. The battery should be cleaned too before being stored underneath of a chemical resistant, vinyl tarp with the rest of the batteries from your homes lawn and recreational equipment. Afterward, youll need to empty the fuel tank otherwise it may crack or gel up once the temperatures dip below freezing. Store the leftover gas in a metal can or use it up instead.
When youre done, cover the riding mower with a poly or vinyl machine cover from Canopies and Tarps. With enough advance notice and the right dimensions, we can use some of the worlds best, all-weather vinyl to craft a custom cover for your riding lawn mower or youre welcome to buy some of our standard ones. Then push or roll the riding lawn mower into its designated, winter storage area and seal the area up tight.
