    I live up in Westchester County, NY and I finally got a chance to winterize my Scag hydro w/b.

    I'm a homeowner who used to do work for a landscaper in my college days. I became a bit of a lawn enthusiast and had to buy a w/b after I bought my home. I take care of it like its one of my kids.

    I filled up the tank and added some Stabil to the gas and ran it for about 10 minutes or so. I also cleaned up the deck real nice and gave it a nice coat of wax. The orange deck shines so nice when all cleaned up. The machine looks as good as new.

    I'm already missing the mowing season and I can't wait until spring when I can fire it up again and start laying stripes.
