Storage tips for Winter
Now that the colder weather is well on the way, it's time to think about putting your machines into storage until the spring. But first, you need to winter-proof, so here at Miller's we have a few handy tips to ensure your machines stay in good condition.
- Check the fuel - this is a very important step. Fuel left in the tank begins to degrade after 30 days and become stale, resulting in engine problems that will make it very difficult to start up your machine in the spring time.
- We recommend you drain old,leftover fuel from the engine and use our long-life, environmentally friendly,ready mixed 2 stroke or 4 stroke fuel. This fuel can be used for months without affecting quality or performance.
- Next, make sure your machine is clean. Leaves, grass clipping and mud can corrode the engine, and any dampness can cause rust which will impact the performance when you are ready to use it again, so make sure you store the machine in a dry location.
- Lastly, it's always a good idea to remove the battery from your lawnmower for the winter, and to store it in a cool, dry place away from fuel and heaters.
Following these tips should ensure that when the winter is over, your machines will be ready for spring!
