I was wonder what every one does to winterize their equipment?
From mowers to handhelds.

Thanks in advance for any help or replys.

There are several threads here on this subject if you do a search.
I store most of my handhelds in my basement for the winter. I run them totally dry, then make sure they are clean and put 'em away. I take the battery out of my ZTR and store it inside where it's warm. I wash and clean everything on it, change the oil and filter etc., and park it in the back of my shop, and move the snow removal stuff up front.

I forgot to add that I fill all my gas tanks on anything that is stored in the shop with clean fresh fuel, and add Sta-Bil to it, the run long enough to make sure that the Sta-Bil gets circulated throughout the carbs.
