    Damn,

    How many of you guys service your equipment regularly?

    ie) change the spark plugs, fuel filters, air filters, change the oil etc...?

    How often do you guys do it, it saids 50hrs it requires new sparkplugs, air filters, etc.. but when you have 10+ equipment, it takes a lot of your time up eh?

    Quit being a weenie and just do it. Your equipment will last years longer and run with less break downs in the long run if you put in a little preventative maintenance.

    What do you guys do in your tune ups for your equipment?

    1) New spark plugs
    2) air filter
    3) fuel filter

    What else can you do? Shoot carb cleaner to clean out carbon buildup?

    :help: ;)

    Here is a maintenance software program that I have been using for years to help me maintain all of my equipment, vehicles and the wife's vehicle's. Every equipment manual has a maintenance chart of when to do what. Put the data in there and you can also modify the intervals. Having hour meter's on your equipment helps also.
