How soon do you start prepping all your equipment, trucks, books, for the season. I usually want to do it early, but ofcourse don't. Mid Feb.?

Everything we own goes to my dealer no later than February the 1st (except trucks).

I try to do mine as in goes into storage for the winter. This year I got a late start, so I am in the process of going over all my equipment right now.

I work on mine all through out the winter. It gives me something to do, and also allows me to know it is being done right. My equipment is like new when we start back in the spring!

My stuff is ready year round. Use about everything all winter, just in a reduced amount.

I do put new fuel filters and air filters in 2 cycle equipment in Feb. Other than that...we're always ready.

Ditto here. I'm not real big on working out in the cold on the stuff. Besides which, I usually have very little to do to get things in order. I do have a few projects to get to this year, though, before the season starts.
