When it’s wintertime, a lot of people put their outdoor power equipment away until the Bermuda grass starts turning green again in the spring.
But before you put your outdoor power equipment away, it’s important to do some winter care for your outdoor power equipment.
Doing a little preventive maintenance winter care on your equipment will help you avoid problems when you try to start it up in the spring.
One of the easiest preventive maintenance steps to protect your power equipment this winter is to add Briggs & Stratton 5-in-1 Advanced Formula Fuel Stabilizer & Treatment to your gas tank.
- We recommend that the first step in any small engine maintenance is to review the instructions in your power equipment Owners Manual.
- Next run your lawn mower, lawn tractor, or pressure washer (outside). Running the engine will get the fuel additives and preservatives that protect your small engine from the effects of ethanol damage through your engine fuel system.
- Finally, top off your fuel tank to prevent accumulation of moisture that could lead to corrosion.
Please read our Portable Generator article for preventive maintenance recommendations.
