Regular Maintenance for Your Power Tools and Lawn Equipment

Joseph Coupal - Friday, April 27, 2012

Yard and lawn care season has begun, along with those outdoor home maintenance tasks. It is fun to break out the power tools, and regular maintenance is the key to having them run well and last long.

Start with an oil change, most power tools require an oil change every 25 hours of running time. It is best to follow the maintenance plan spelled out in your owner’s manual. The manual usually also calls for once/year engine tune ups.

Air filters need to be regularly changed as well. Think of all the dust you kick up with your leaf blower or lawn mower. To keep your equipment running smoothly, the engine needs air. Of course, if you have not started the lawn mower yet this season, your lawn mower blade probably needs sharpening.

Scheduled maintenance holds off big surprises. There is nothing worse than reaching for a power tool and having it not start. For schedule maintenance or parts for your power tool contact J&J Small Engine Clinic in North Attleboro.
