Every year, we know it’s coming. Predictions of snow gradually disappear. Winter coats are replaced with light jackets. Grilling outside becomes bearable. Then, it arrives – the first lawn mowing of the season. You may have been prepping and planning this day for months, ready for your lawn to be the talk of the block again this year. Maybe you hate mowing your lawn and have been dreading this day (in which case, you should definitely check out the Husqvarna Automower). Regardless of which category you’re a part of, there is a good chance you’ve overlooked a major part of lawn care. There are many benefits of lawnmower maintenance that people aren’t aware of.
What are the benefits of lawnmower maintenance?
None of us would drive our vehicle without taking it for regular oil changes. We also probably wouldn’t let it sit idle for up to 8 months and then just start driving it around either. The engine is your lawnmower is very similar to the engine in your car. However, most people do not pay the same attention to their lawn equipment. Maybe you never really thought about maintaining your lawnmower or maybe you didn’t realize the benefits of lawnmower maintenance.
Extended Equipment Lifespan
The most obvious benefit of regular lawnmower maintenance is the increased lifespan of your equipment. Proper maintenance can extend the lifespan of your lawn mower by three to four times. Instead of needing to replace your mower after only four years, it could last 12+ years! When you compare the price of replacing your lawnmower versus the cost of having proper maintenance performed, you can save thousands of dollars over the life of your machine.
Have you ever finished mowing your lawn, looked back, and thought, “Why doesn’t my lawnmower cut as well as it used to?” There is a good chance it isn’t just your imagination. Over time, cutting blades dull, engines lose performance, and nuts and bolts loosen up. With regular maintenance, you can be sure that your lawn equipment is always achieving maximum performance. This means you’ll get the best results possible with minimal effort.
Catch More Serious Problems Early
With proper maintenance, not only can you reduce the chance of bigger problems, you can also catch any issues early. This results in a much cheaper repair than waiting until there is a full breakdown. Catching a problem early will also prolong the life of your equipment. This is probably one of the most overlooked benefits of lawnmower maintenance.
