Where did the summer go?? At first i find myself ready to cut the lawn all over again after a long winters nap. With out too much snow last winter i had plenty of gas left over. So now with that said its time to take the cub and gett'er ready for its long winters sleep.
My checklist is;
Change the engine oil
Clean or replace the air filter
Clean or change the sparkplug
Top the gas tank and add seafoam (then i run it for a while to mix all the juices)
Charge the battery so its fully up
Oil the throttle/choke cables ( I have a cable lube system from the motorcycles)
Check the tranny oil level and change if dirty
Check the belts so you can get them before spring
Grease the front axle, mower deck
Sharpen the mower deck blades and check the spindles for any play in the bearings
Fill the tires with air were needed
At the sametime I make a check list of work to be done if it needs any more repairs, but i may get to them before spring if i can. maybe the throwout bearing is a tad noisy or the PTO or clutch has problems.
Now your cub cadet is ready for its winter nap.
If you want to add something that you do feel freel too we can all learn something new....
