Equipment Corner : How To Winterize Your Lawn Equipment

It is time to Winterize your Outdoor Power Equipment! Doing this will extend the life of your equipment and will help ensure a hassle-free spring when it is time to start these engines again.

The most important step is either draining or stabilizing the fuel. Draining the fuel is usually best with the pieces of equipment that uses two-cycle (trimmers, blowers, etc.) and stabilizing the fuel is best on engines using fuel only such as your mowers.

How to drain the fuel and winterize your 2-cycle equipment:

1. Pour the gas in the tank into a gas can.
2. Run the engine to get the remaining fuel out of the carburetor. Your engine will spudder to a stop.
3. Remove spark plug and Pour a few drops of 2-cycle into the spark plug port and give the starter cord a couple pulls. This lubricates the pistons and crankshaft.
4. Install a new spark plug.
5. Inspect and clean air filter.
6. Check all fuel likes and replaces the fuel filter.
7. Clean and lubricate all moving parts.
How to Stabilize your fuel and winterize your fuel only equipment (i.e. mower):
1. Add stabilizer to a full gas tank.
2. Run the engine for a few minutes, then fill up the tank. A full tank prevents water condensation from getting in the tanks.
3. Clean the entire mower deck of caked on grass clippings, etc.
4. Change the engine oil.
5. Inspect and clean the air filter.
6. Check fuel lines and replace the fuel filter.
7. Inspect and worn and missing parts.
If you don’t have time to winterize your equipment, no problem! Let us take this off your plate. Our New Special Services Department, can winterize and service all your equipment.

Weekend Warrior Fall Projects: Cleaning Out the Garage

Fall is the perfect time to Clean out your garage.  Being able to park your car in the garage and stay warm in the winter months, is a key reason to tackle this Weekend Warrior Fall Project now.

Declutter

First things first….  Take all items out of the garage and start to sort them of what you do and do not need.  (Don’t be afraid to part with things that you’ve had for a long time!  Getting rid of old things will only make room for the new items that you will actually use and not just collect dust in the garage.)  To help with the removal of items, we have an assorted dollies to help get the job done fast and not break your back.

It is best to create 3 piles: Trash, Charity, and Keep.  If you have a lot of items to remove, then you want to rent a dump trailer or utility trailer in order to dispose of all the items and take them to the landfill or take to your favorite charity.

Cleaning and Floor Maintenance

Start by sweeping the entire garage and brush out all the corners of the garage.  Rent a blower to remove all the small particles that the broom just couldn’t pick up.

Now, it is time to give your garage a good cleaning with a pressure washer.  Pressure washing the floor can help you see if there is any damage or crack that you may need to repair.  If your garage floor has become battered and bruised over the years, now is the perfect time to fix them.   Rental Stop has all the tools you will need to repair your concrete as well.  Check them out here.

Inspect and Paint Your Walls

Time to inspect all the walls of the garage and make sure there are no holes and cracks that need to be repaired. Once you repair the walls, it is time to put a fresh coat of paint.  Our airless paint sprayer can get the job done fast.

Time to Organize and Label

Finally, it is time to get everything in its place. Organizing your garage can save you plenty of time and money.  Yes, money…  you will be able to find all your items and not have to go buy what you already have in your garage.  It is always helpful to place all the cleaning supplies in one spot, tools in another. Time to invest in things like shelves, cabinets, hooks and bins to contain all your items.

Many garages can have odd shapes to them so if you need to make your own shelves or cabinets, Rental Stop has all the tools and saws to help get the job done.

Finally, it is always helpful to label all your bins and sections to help you find everything.  Some suggestions are Tools, Cleaning Supplies, Car, Holiday Decorations, etc.

Need Help?

Rental Stop’s All-New Special Services Department can provide you all the help you need moving large items around, garbage removal, etc.  You have a job for us?  Call us today for a quote at 972-336-0059. Or visit our website: www.rentalstops.com

Weekend Warrior: The Importance of Fall Lawn Aeration

Most people feel Spring is the most important time for lawns, but really Fall is just as important. Fall lawn maintenance gets your yard ready for the long winter and can help keep your lawn healthy all year long…. And aerating is one of the most important tasks of all.

Why is aerating so important? It is the process of puncturing the soil and pulling “plugs” below to create open pockets. It is through these pockets that air, water, and nutrients find their way to feed the roots of grass. Aerating lawns also encourages root development before the coming winter as well as loosen compacted soil to help your grass grow.

Fall is the perfect time to aerate your lawn, since we have the cooler air temperatures but warm ground temperatures. This allows your soil time to recover before going dormant for the winter.

Since you only need to Aerate your lawn only two times a year (early spring and fall), purchasing an aerator can be expensive, as well as, take up space in your garage or shed. Renting an aerator is the best solution to help save you money. And why not team up with a neighbor or two and rent for the day!

Tip: After the aerating process, it is best to keep heavy foot traffic off your lawn in order to allow the plugs to breakdown naturally. You don’t want all your hard work to get compressed back into the lawn with heavy foot traffic.

After aerating your lawn, now is the perfect time to rent a spreader to fertilize and overseed your yard. This helps the seeds to come in close contact with the soil. Don’t forget to add water!

If you don’t have time to do these projects around your home to prepare for winter, let Rental Stop do them for you.  Our new Service Department will come out and provide you a quote and get the job done with all the necessary tools included.  Call us today at 972-336-0059 for your quote. Or visit our website: www.rentalstops.com
