When storing your petrol lawn mower or brush cutter for the Winter break, the fuel tank should be emptied. If fuel is left in the tank it could cause problems starting it up next season because the fuel loses it’s combustibility, and can gel up in the carburettor. It is advisable to let the machine idle until it runs out of fuel and stops on it’s own. On a four stroke mower, make sure the oil level is topped up before storing it. Then store away in a normal position under cover in a dust-free, dry place.
