Winter mower maintenance

Winter mower maintenance

Winter mower maintenance is very important in your annual lawn care cycle. Don’t get caught in the spring rush, take advantage of your lawns slow growth in winter and get your equipment serviced and fresh before the weather warms up.

Why winter lawn mower repair?

Too many customers don’t even think about maintenance until it’s too late. For some customers that means they wait so long that their equipment breaks because it has never been serviced. For others it means that they wait till all the stores are the busiest making the process a chore.

With your lawns growth slowing down in winter you have less work to do with your lawn. This makes it the perfect time for mower maintenance as you will have more free time. And as a bonus you can beat the spring rush!

Perform your own mower maintenance

If you are a do-it-yourself person you can service your mower at home. This can be as simple as checking and possibly replacing your mower blades, and cleaning your air filter. It is also a very good idea to change the oil, add a fuel preservative and clean the spark plug.

For some engines Bunnings can help you take your servicing to the next level with a Briggs & Stratton Engine Service Kit. This kit includes everything homeowners need to service their own mower including oil, spark plug, air filter and fuel preservative.

See the professionals

If you really want to keep your mower in its best condition and truly protect your investment you should see the professionals. We recommend using The Mower Place who have stores at Capalaba, Browns Plains and Kenmore. As well as their convenient service centres they offer expert advice and amazing range of lawn care products.

If you do intend to contact the professionals to get your equipment it is VERY important to beat the spring rush. The second the weather warms up the service centres get overrun as everyone tries to get their mower serviced at the same time. This makes winter mower maintenance the best chance to time both your lawns dormant period and the optimum time to avoid long waits and no available service appointments.
