Springtime is upon us, which means it's time to get your mower ready to keep your yard tip-top. Thus, follow the lawn mower maintenance tips listed in this post by Synthetic Motorsports in AMSOIL: William Parsons: William Parsons.

For many, spring is the best season of the year, and with good reason, since days get warmer, daylight hours increase, flowers bloom, and nature greens up and grow. In this regard, it's worth mentioning that during springtime, your lawn can grow up to one, two, three, and even six inches in a few days (depending on the type of lawn you have); therefore, you will need to mow it frequently to keep it looking as green and lush as possible during the spring. Considering the above, it's worth mentioning that the health of your lawn depends highly on the condition of the equipment used to mow it; therefore, it is crucial to give your lawn care equipment proper maintenance regularly. Ideally, the engine should be well lubricated, fueled, and sharpened blades to provide an appropriate cut to the lawn. Now, if your lawn care equipment spent all winter in storage, read the following post by Synthetic Motorsports to learn how to perform effective lawn mower maintenance for this spring.

How to Do Effective Lawn Mower Maintenance

For Starters, Follow These Pre-Maintenance Steps

The first step you should take is disconnecting the spark plug from your mower. Doing so is of utmost importance to ensure your safety; after all, your mower has blades that can ignite by accident, even if the engine is off; therefore, it is best to disconnect the power supply.

Check the Engine Oil

Your mower's engine is pretty small compared to your motorcycle or car engine. Yet, it needs lubrication like any other larger vehicle; hence, it's essential to check your mower's oil level before starting it up for its first mowing of the season. Now, checking the oil level of your mower is a quick and simple procedure; still, be sure to check and follow the instructions described by the manufacturer in your operator's manual. This check consists of placing your mower on a flat surface, removing the dipstick to clean it, inserting it again for a couple of seconds, and removing it once more to check where the fluid is. Ideally, the oil level should be between the lower and upper mark on the dipstick. In case your mower's oil levels are low, be sure to fill the reservoir; likewise, replace your oil if you did not do so before storing your mower for the winter.

Check Air Filter

Did you know that your mower's carburetor needs clean air for the engine to perform at its best? That's why it's essential to check your air filter before using your lawn care equipment this season. To inspect it, follow the instructions in your operator's manual. If your filter is damaged and broken, replace it with a new one; on the other hand, check your manual for cleaning options if your filter is only clogged with dirt. In some cases, paper filters can be cleaned by blowing compressed air through them; likewise, foam filters can be cleaned with soap and water.

Inspect the Blade

Of course, your mower needs to have a sharp blade in top condition to perform as expected; otherwise, it could damage your lawn. Of course, checking the blade can be risky, so be sure to follow the instructions described in your manual to avoid any risks. If you notice that the blade is dull while checking it, you can send it to your dealer for sharpening to make it as good as new; conversely, having a bent, cracked, or damaged blade can be very dangerous, so be sure to replace it if that's the case.

Replace the Spark Plug if Needed

Besides disconnecting the spark plug from your mower (as mentioned at the beginning of this post), check its condition to replace it if necessary. As you may already know, the spark plug has the function of igniting the air-fuel mixture to start your mower; therefore, it needs to be replaced regularly. If you notice that your spark plug has a cracked insulator or worn electrodes, replace it with a new spark plug; otherwise, it will be enough to clean the one you already have with a wire brush to reuse it.
