I'm going to be making my first cut for the season within the next week, and I need the more knowledgable (read: everyone) members' advice on how to prepare my equipment for the season. I'll list some info about each piece of equipment. Toro LX466 riding mower: -3rd season -serviced last summer (oil and filter change, new battery, blades sharpened, air filter changed, greased) -self-winterized at the end of last season (removed, charged battery and stored indoors; fuel stabilizer added to full tank and ran through lines; left oil in mower; tires separated from concrete by cardboard) Briggs walk-behind: -old (ten years?) -carb serviced 5(?) years ago -blade sharpened last year -didn't do anything to winterize Echo straight shaft 2 stroke trimmer: -2 years old -winterized according to Echo (drained gas, oiled cylinder, left cylinder at top of stroke) Some more general questions for the forum members: Is the gas (straight and mixed) from last year good or should I dispose of it? If I need to dispose the gas, can it be used in my cars? Is it too late to overseed the lawn? I'm in Ontario and the nights are still dropping to mid single digits in Celsius, ~ 35-40F. Any other helpful suggestions for a great cutting season are welcome. Thanks!!
