Now is the time to winterize your seasonal power equipment — get your warm-weather gear ready for storage and prepare your cold-weather tools for the season.
To winterize warm-weather equipment, remember three things: lube, drain and maintain. Lube your power tools and equipment, and drain gas from mowers, tillers and any other equipment that uses fuel. Schedule any maintenance that may need to be done on this equipment, and don't forget to remove batteries in battery-powered tools.
With your warm-weather gear ready to store, get your winter tools ready for use. Fill the tank of your snow blower with gas, change the oil, and check the spark plugs, tires and all moving parts.
