Although we’re still enjoying the warm summer weather, it’s only a matter of time before the temperature—and the leaves—start to fall. If you live in the Monroe, CT, area, you know the combination of wind and fallen leaves can be quite the nuisance. If you rely on your trusted leaf blower to get you through the cooler months, consider the following maintenance advice from the professionals at L & R Power Equipment.
3 Ways to Keep Your Leaf Blower in Pristine Condition
1. Replace Filter
Did you know your leaf blower has an air filter? Just like those found in your home and auto HVAC systems, the air filters in your leaf blower need to be cleaned and changed periodically. By checking on your blower’s air filter once a month, you can expect it to continue running smoothly.
2. Do a Quick Inspection
Outdoor power tools may be built to withstand the elements and strenuous use, but sometimes, they break. Before firing up your leaf blower, check that everything from the collection bag to the throttle lock is attached and functional.
3. Flush the Fuel Tank
Every month or so, it’s a good idea to flush the fuel line of your leaf blower. Then, refill it with gasoline and a fuel stabilizer. Practicing this simple maintenance procedure every month will allow your leaf blower to function efficiently and keep fuel costs low.
