With the warm weather returning, now is a great time to service your ride-on mower so it can beat the long grass with ease.
You can bring your mower into any of our branches for a service, and our staff will check your mower and make sure it is tip-top working condition.
If you prefer to do it yourself John Deere mower home maintenance kits are available for the full range of riding mowers. Each kit contains the basic requirements for a service such as replacement oil and filters.
To keep your mower running at its best don’t forget to check
- The air cleaner – ensure optimal performance and reduce the chance of a dusted engine.
- Spark Plugs – replacing the spark plug will also yield positive results in assisting with easier hot and cold engine starting which can be affected by degraded plugs.
- Fuel filter and fuel – as a general guide, fuel can go stale within a month. If old fuel is used, it will have less volatility meaning less power and harder starting so it is always a good idea to replace after extended periods without use.
- Blades – check and replace the blade so that clean cutting and good catching is maintained
And always remember to check your operator’s manual for recommendations specific to your machine, such as a valve adjustment and the condition of your drive belts.
While you are talking to your local branch about the service requirements for your mower, don’t forget to ask them about the huge range of implements and attachments available that can convert your mower into a versatile lawn tractor to help with all your chores. Add a bumper, a cover, headlight kit, attach sprayer or bagger, or hook on a storage cart to haul a variety of materials around your property.
The possibilities are endless.
