“1. Have a clean air filter in place.
The air filter has the important job of preventing dirt, dust and other debris from entering the carburetor and engine. It should be cleaned or changed every 25 hours of engine use or once per mowing season.
2. Use a clean fuel filter.
There is high risk of damage to fuel filters if cleaned so replacement is recommended.
Spray a degreaser on oil stains. Allow the degreaser to sit for 10-15 minutes before wiping with a clean cloth. Rinse with a hose and dry completely.”

Another important aspect of keeping your tiller in tip-top shape is best storage practices. In the wintertime, be sure to use a fuel stabilizer to keep the carburetor free of clogs. If necessary, you may also drain the fuel too. Also, be mindful of the condition of the tires and check for wear or damage and don’t forget to check the air pressure.
