With winter quickly approaching, John Deere compiled a list of preparation pointers for landscape professionals to power through the cold. They are as follows:

1. Machine care

Keep machines ready for next year by cleaning the machine and deck, repairing chipped or scratched paint and lubricating grease points.

2. Properly store

Follow proper storage steps as the end of fall approaches. Store the vehicle in a cool, dry place or, if the mower must be stored outside, cover it with waterproof material.

3. Fuel system

If you are currently using fuel stabilizer, fill the fuel tank completely. If you are not using fuel stabilizer, take the proper steps to refill fuel.

4. Engine preparation

Follow the manufacturer’s service intervals, including changing the oil and oil filter and cleaning the cooling system.

5. Monitor tires

Changing weather conditions require an extra look at tires. Be sure to increase or decrease tire pressure depending on the weather in your region.
