How to look after your ride-on lawn mower in the Winter months

Well, it is getting to that time of the year when we don our jumpers and batten down the hatches.  The weather pattern is better for raking leaves and (if we’re lucky enough) sweeping snow.  When you place your ride-on lawn mower into hibernation, there is more to shutting it away from the snow.  It is also about the proper maintenance of your mower so that it is ready for next year.


Before your very eyes is this awesome infographic from Lawnmowers Direct.  A lot of its advice is all common sense, accessible, and neatly distilled into four parts.



When you store your ride-on petrol lawn mower, please remember to empty the petrol tank or add stabiliser.  The latter enables you to start up your lawnmower without a hitch come spring.




Oil should be kept in your lawn mower all year round.  Even so, oil still needs to be changed each year and Autumn is the best time to do just that.




Before you start mowing the lawn in spring, can the blades (so to speak) still cut it?  If there’s any significant dents or cracks, get them replaced.  If in good condition, they might need sharpening.




If you have a ride-on battery-powered lawn mower, its winter hiatus is a good time to charge its batteries.  After charging, we recommend storing them in a heated garage or at a moderate room temperature.
