FEATURED PRODUCT SECTION
As temperatures rise, landscapers are preparing for another busy
season of grounds maintenance. An important part of having
equipment ready for these jobs includes performing preventive
maintenance checks on the engines powering these devices. A
quick, routine engine-maintenance check can prevent costly repairs and downtime, say experts at Honda Power Equipment.
They suggest checking/adding engine and reduction case oil and
looking at foam pre-cleaner and paper element cleaners. Also, inspect for loose bolts, fasteners and fuel and oil leaks – this may
require tilting the equipment to see all sides of the engine.
