Keep your Lawn Mower Running Longer and Better

Joseph Coupal - Friday, April 20, 2012

A trouble-free lawn care season begins with a lawn mower that starts easily and runs smoothly. The key to making that happen may be as simple as doing a mower tune-up this year. A tune-up is inexpensive, takes only about 30 minutes for a typical push mower and is easy.

Best of all, this annual maintenance can save hundreds of dollars in the long run because it helps avoid major, costly repairs and premature replacement of the lawn mower.

It's like preventive medicine for your equipment. For a few dollars and few minutes once a year, you can make your lawn mower last longer and run better.

Benefits of a tune-up include:

  • A lawn mower that starts quickly and runs smoothly at full power
  • Extended mower life and the potential to avoid major repairs
  • Reduced engine emissions because the engine runs cleaner
  • A small savings in the amount of gasoline used
Homeowners who have never attempted a mower tune-up can have it done at J&J Small Engine Clinic.

For the typical push mower, this is everything needed to do a tune-up: the right amount of oil, an air filter, spark plug and fuel preservative. Need parts? No problem; contact  J&J Small Engine Clinic.
