- Remove the mower drive belt and store to prevent hard spots from developing in the belts where it wraps around the pulleys.
- Lubricate all pivot points and grease blade spindle bearing to prevent rusting from condensation build up over winter.
- Drain fuel tank and carburetor or use a fuel stabilizer in the carburetor.
- Clean the bottom of the deck to remove all grass build up. Use a wire brush and a putty knife and remove as much build up as possible then apply a spray on dry film lubricant to prevent corrosion. This will also help prevent future grass build up next season.
