Many experts would advise homeowners to change the oils every month, even when not used, to maintain it in its peak condition. This can be a waste of oil, though, since you obviously have no need for your cub cadet snow blowers until next winter. However you also can’t risk leaving stale oil in your equipment, because it can cause the carburetor to corrode. It is important to remember that most of the fuel available on stores are blended with ethanol, a corroding agent. Before oiling your equipment, check for any warning logos or oiling instructions on acceptable ethanol percentage. If the instruction tells you to not use a fuel blend with not more than 10% ethanol, specifically ask for this blend from your local hardware stores.

Parents should always remember that lawn mowers are dangerous machines designed to cut. When mowing the lawn, little children should stay indoors until the parents are done with the yard work. As for senior citizens, they should avoid using stand-on or walk-behind mowers due to the potential slip and fall risk. It is highly advisable that they instead use a zero-turn toro lawn mower, like those available in Denny’s Lawn & Garden. Being able to sit down while doing the yard work promotes both safety and comfort for the elderlies. Zero-turn mowers are also very user-friendly because they have mode settings to suit the preference of senior citizens; some may prefer a slow but smooth ride, while others would only want a quick run-through before some guests arrive.
