With winter approaching, many of you will be putting equipment such as motorcycles, lawnmowers and personal watercraft into storage. Though it can be tempting to park it out of sight after the final use and hope it starts again next season, such action (or inaction) can have serious consequences. Engines left unprepared for storage can suffer from fuel degradation, condensation and corrosion. The results can lead to poor performance, costly repairs or replacement, so it makes sense (and cents) to prepare equipment for the off-season so it’s protected and ready for springtime use. Even if you live in a moderate winter climate, extended periods of non-use warrant following these winterizing strategies:
Outboard Engines (Two- and Four-Stroke)
Personal Watercraft (PWC)
Lawn, Garden and Handheld
Following these simple steps can keep your equipment in peak operating condition, even when it’s not in use for several months. An hour or two of preventive maintenance now means next spring you’ll be spending more time on the road, on the water or in the yard instead of in the shed tearing apart dirty carburetors.
