Weather stripping can seal leaks around movable joints, such as windows or doors. You need to choose a type of weather stripping that will withstand the friction, weather, temperature changes, and wear and tear associated with its location.
The most common cause of annual mower repairs results from leaving gas or gas-oil mix inside the engine’s tank and carburetor over the winter season. Avoid expensive service shop charges by either 1) running the engine until all gas has been used up, or 2) adding a commercially-available gas stabilizer to the tank before putting the mower away in the fall. A $3 investment may save you a $60 repair bill.
