    Greese the ports, sharpen the belts, once a week. Change the oil when needed along with the air filer.

    2 essential tools needed, a left handed blade sharpener and a right handed blade sharpener, or a grinding stone,or a file.Left or right handed

    Don't for get a left handed smoke shifter for when your working on a smokin engine, a sky hook to lift the deck up to work on it. Also a whatchamacall it.

    You can always read the owners manual of your particular model and get the info you need. But keep the air filter clean and change the oil frequently and grease the zerts often.

    How often should you check the air in the tires?

    Will turtle wax hurt the deck?

    Does anyone put decals on their wb's?
