At the end of the season free working of the lawn mower from the ground and grass.Adhered residues can cause corrosion of metal parts.But in any case, do not wash the metal parts under a strong stream of water hitting the mechanism, it can lead him into disrepair.Shake thoroughly clean the grass catcher, lubricate all the components with engine oil and knife mower.

Models with petrol engine after completion of all work drain the oil and gas, clean the spark plug, and then fill it with fresh engine oil.If the mower works on batteries, they need to be recharged, and check all the electrical contacts and the connecting cable.

Hoe Hoe also needs a w

inter storage.First of all, clean all parts and components from the ground, oil stains.

Dried ground with mills and gear is best to clean off with a wooden stick, as in places of scratches can form rust or running water (1).

Then wipe with a dry cloth.Be sure to clean the cooling fins of the engine, exhaust pipes.Plastic parts, housings and control handle can be wiped with a damp sponge (2).

cloth dampened with machine oil, wipe the cutter cultivators and gear outside.The oil creates a protective film that protects the metal from rust.If, in addition cutters you have additional tips, they also lubricate metal parts with oil, then place in a wooden box, shifting dense packing paper.

Remove the cable switch movement, or during the winter it can be stretched.

finished with the guidance of purity, you can start the engine preservation.Wash the foam air filter in warm water with detergent.Then dry with a dry, slightly saturate with engine oil.In those models where there is a paper filter, replace it (3).Drain the fuel tank of gasoline stayed there.After that, remove the spark plug, plug and pour into a cylinder about 15 ml of oil (4).Clean the spark plug (preferably a wooden stick, to avoid damage to the insulator), wash it in gasoline, dry and put back in front of this value by checking valve clearance.Then turn the starter motor shaft that is put into the cylinder oil is evenly distributed over its walls.If your model has a tiller main fuel filter, clean it and him.

As is the case with other garden equipment, clean dirt from all parts and components, lubricate them with machine oil.Trimmer head (it must be removed), wipe with a damp cloth, metal knife brush with oil, pack everything into a dense paper.All parts and components are best kept in the same place to the spring they can be easily found.The gear angular gear, add grease.Slot corner gear, clean, grease and put on top of a plastic bag to protect the unit from dust during storage.

to the engine did not fail in the new season, clean it from dirt and dust, drain the gasoline from the fuel tank and run the engine to develop all of the fuel in the carburetor.For brushcutters is very important, since the gasoline mixture is prepared with oil, and during storage it may split into factions, which had a negative impact on the future work of the mechanism.After that, remove the spark plug, fill the engine oil 5-10 ml, rotate the crankshaft several times using the starter, rinse and wipe with a candle and put it in place.

Before putting mowers for storage, make sure that the plastic hose extending from the control handle to the engine, was pinched, because it contains wires and due to compression, they can be damaged.Keep motokosa best in a dry place, away from heat sources.
