How to Properly Maintain and Store Your Lawn and Garden Tools and Equipment for the Winter

Summer has ended and it’s officially fall! It’s time to put away the tools of summer and start pulling out the equipment that tends to signify fall and winter. Leaf blowers, shovels, snow blowers, and more start making an appearance in the front of your shed or garage and the leaves all from the trees and the cold weather hits.

But before you start pulling out the new tools, it’s important to make sure you’ve properly stored your lawn and garden equipment, including lawn mowers, weed whackers, garden tools, and more. While ensuring all your tools are tucked away from the elements in your garage or shed is a great first step, there are many more storage techniques you can apply to ensure your equipment will start easily next year. Proper care and attention will also help increase the life expectancy and performance of your tools and equipment.

Gold Eagle, a well known name in automotive and equipment maintenance and protection, has put together a handy slideshow that offers storage and preparation strategies for many common types of outdoor power equipment. We found it pretty useful and educational, so wanted to share with our readers in case there are a few tips you may find interesting as well!
