During winter the drone of the mower seems a distant memory, a famous spread chore, you either love it or hate it! Obviously at Mow-N-Blow its something we love, the hum of a well looked after mower means its summer and that the garden is that all-important extra room again.
For that drone to sound just right though takes maintenance, oil, filter and spark plug changes to engines, secateurs, hedge cutters and all sorts of various implements need their blades sharpened, strimmers wound with fresh cord, and even the purchase of fresh equipment. All perfect winter jobs and done in the comfort of a shed or garage.
At Mow-N-Blow I have to service throughout the seasons but I get a better deal at this time of year and have more time to do it myself. If your doing this yourself don’t forget to check the plugs and cables on any electrical equipment you may have and as you probably don’t need the equipment right now you don’t have to rush the job.
