❓ What are the main steps in preparing a mower for winter?
Check discs and holders for quick blade replacement – turn them over or replace them if necessary.
QCS – quick blade change system ensures easy maintenance. Just release the springs and turn or replace a blade in a few seconds.
Check the grease and oil to ensure quieter and smoother running.
Since the discs need to be removed to check the amount of oil and grease, this is a great opportunity to clean on and under the cutter-bar of all impurities.
Check all moving parts and lubricate them as instructed. This is important for the joints to remain maintained and it also expands the lifespan of the joints.
