Well, now that the sides are on my trailer i cannot bring the eXmark around with me due to the width of the mower (need wider trailer really bad!!!). So i think this weekend im going to put her away for the winter but want to make sure that im doing everything that should be done when putting it away so that in the spring its pretty much ready to go. So my question, what are the things that i need to/should do in order to put my mower away for the season (never had a mower this complex so im totally sure what i have to do with all the different parts to put it away correctly). Im willing to spend as much time as i have to because i really don't want to mess this mower up!! Thanks, Mike (Kinda messed up the title of the thread, oh well, thanks again!!
