Learn How to Properly Store Your Lawn Mower for Winter

The winter season is more than just a time to bring out your seasonal equipment. It's also a time to properly store the other equipment you've used all year. For this ProTip Tuesday, we asked Dan Rogers, the manager of the East Coast Lumber Equipment Center, to take us step-by-step on how to winterize your lawn mower. Read Dan's full article to learn how to winterize gas and battery powered mowers.

For visual representation, we also created this infographic to help give lawn mower owners an idea of how to do it yourself. We used the Toro 22” Personal Pace Mower  as a model, which can be found in our Equipment Center. According to our experts, the process should take only about an hour and a half to complete.

A deck may not be the first thing people see when they pull up to your house, but it is important to both the aesthetic of the home and for your personal comfort. So, when you're choosing what material to build your deck with, our millwork specialist and supervisor Mark Dionne says there are basically two schools of thought: pricing and maintenance. 

"It's always the battle between price and low maintenance," said Dionne. "Most homeowners are saying 'I want low or no maintenance.' But you're also coming in on a budget. Most people make decisions based on how long they're staying at their house or property."

For most long-term homeowners and the elderly, low maintenance is the diamond in the rough. For someone who is looking for a more economical solution, like most renters, or even someone who likes the authenticity of the product, wood is usually the way to go.

Within each of these options, Dionne says that material-wise, there are always a 'good, better, and best' option. Let's explore these materials and find out what tiers these products entail and why they would fit your needs.
