We have discussed the importance of a clean mower deck and the blades being sharpened and balanced. We looked at tire pressure and a good even cut. So what’s next?
Always check your oil and make sure that it does not smell of gasoline. We have discussed ethanol issues in the past and we see failing carburetors due to ethanol.
What about the drive system? Belts and idlers for the transaxle need to be visually inspected to ensure a worry-free mowing season.
If you are doing your own service work, you may want to jack up the front of your tractor enough to check the wheel bearings and steering spindles. Excessive play in the steering could be a disaster waiting to happen. You may have to refer to your owner’s manual for tolerances.
