Winter Storage: Lawn Mower

Winter storage: Lawn mower

With the changes of the seasons, comes the changing of the lawn mower to the snow blower! Storing your lawn mower can save space and time. With this guide, you will be a PRO and be ready for winter! If you do not have a storage unit, visit selfstor.ca and book yours today!

Follow these steps:

  1. Remove the spark plug and place it inside a small box. Tape the box to the side of the lawn mower to avoid losing it.
  2. Completely drain the fuel tank of gas. Any gas that is left inside could cause it to degrade on the inside.
  3. Remove all the lingering pieces of grass. Give the entire area a washdown. Any lawn items left over the winter could rot and ruin the fabric collection bag.
  4. Top off the oil, this gives you an invaluable barrier of protection.

Remember, no flammable liquids are allowed in a storage unit.

You might be tempted to skip the draining fuel step and opt for fuel stabilizer. However, our storage facility does not allow any of these items. Fuel and oil must be emptied before taking your mower to our storage facility.

If you keep your mower at home, fold over the handle on a stationary mower and temporarily remove the guard. This will give you added space and make it easier to store at home.
