Lawnmower Maintenance

You've probably done a spring car tune up - how about a lawn mower tune up?   Before you rev up the lawnmower, check the spark plug wire connection, then check the blade, sharpening any dullness with a file.  Clean it inside and out, lubricating all moving parts including the wheels.  And don't use last year's gasoline, empty the tank and start fresh. Next time, do this in the fall to prevent problems.
