Taking care of your riding mower

Whether your mower uses gas or electricity, winter can wreak havoc on your machine.

You may have heard that gasoline is dangerous, but did you know there are several things you can do to prevent fuel contamination?

Cutting grass during high heat and humidity

Summer has always been one of those times that Anderson’s service department gets lots of calls from customers wanting their lawn mower, snow blower or other power equipment repaired. During periods when temperatures are above 85 degrees or below 40 degrees for more than a week, it can put added stress on your equipment. In some cases, you may find yourself in a situation where you need to make an emergency service call because your equipment isn’t functioning correctly due to these extreme conditions. Anderson’s service department is prepared with special diagnostic tools and procedures that allow them to quickly and accurately identify problems caused by high temperature extremes.

Checking out your push mower

When you’re not using your push mower, make sure it’s clean and that all its parts are in good working order. If any part is damaged, replace it immediately. Pay attention to any strange sounds your mower makes; don’t hesitate to have it checked out by a professional if you think something is wrong with its engine. Finally, when storing your mower for long periods of time (as opposed to just a couple days between mowing), drain out all remaining fuel and put fresh oil in its crankcase. That way, when you’re ready to get back into action, all that’s left is adding some gas and you’ll be up and running in no time!

Starting up a snow blower for winter

With a chainsaw-like roar, snow blowers can be just as exciting as they are practical. But, when something goes wrong with them, it can be a big inconvenience to have an out-of-commission machine in your driveway. Instead of having to spend money on brand new equipment from Anderson’s Outdoor Power Equipment repair department, have our pros at Anderson’s look at your machine and see what we can do to get it up and running again for another season! Although most major problems that you might run into with a snow blower are internal ones or really require mechanical knowledge to solve, there are things you can do yourself that could save you money in terms of having us look at other issues.
