As always in bad winter weather even if we are not here we will be glad to meet you here to get you going- weekends or holidays if we can. The phone no will be on the door. Call us and we’ll tell you what time we can meet you to help you out. We have a bunch of Dr apt and service schools so if we are gone there we will let you know when we should be back. Check our calender page for events we are scheduled for and if we don’t answer the phone at the shop, try the no for the sale barn. That will reach us inside or outside.
In extreme weather calling for ice- Fill you vehicles with fuel. Fill your gas cans and fill your generators with a little bit of canned fuel. Be sure they start. Add a stabilizer in the reg fuel like Star Tron or B&S stabilizer. Get extra fuel for your chain saws. We recommend the canned fuel which are free of ethanol and will stay in your unit without damage and are good for up to a year. Excellent for generators which set a lot of the time. After the storms are over dump the regular gas into your car. Always get fresh gas for any possible upcoming emergency. If you had to run the generator for an extended time with regular fuel, drain the tank of generators unless filled with a little canned fuels and restart with canned fuels to be sure it’s thru the carb and all passageways. Store with canned fuel. Will make your life a lot easier when the next storm rolls around.
Always call before you make a trip here to be sure we are here. I have added a calender page for open and closed dates for the lawnmower shop and for the Countryside sale barn. PLEASE IF YOU ARE COMING FOR PARTS BRING YOU MODEL NO’S . Computer look-ups start with the Model No and sometimes we need other info depending on what parts you are looking for. If you can’t find them call us- that might save you a trip. If we don’t answer leave your no and what you need and we will call you back. A lot of parts are made overseas and it is a very slow boat from China that brings them here.
Get that chain saw in for service, sharpening, or other repairs.
So far this years schools are on EFI engines(electronic fuel Injection). Good fuels are a MUST. Fuels go bad in 30 days- dont’ smell like it but have no pizazz! Get fresh fuels every time. Otherwise you will have expensive problems. They can save as much as 1/2 the fuel cost - lots cleaner running engines.
Don’t use ethanol in mowers or chain saws. It can damage any ribber components and corrode the metals. Put 1 gal gas in your car before you fill your can of gas in case the guy before filled up with ethanol or flex fuels. After mowing dump your gas into your car and go get fresh gas every time you mow. Bad fuel is not covered by warranty. And on a 2 cycle the ethanol takes out the carb diaphrams, rubber on the seals in the engine as well as old fuel setting ethanol draws moisture and turns corrosive and will eat up the metals inside the carb or clog the holes with corrosion and actually eat the metals in the crankcase. Valve issues-getting valves adjusted to be sure you run right. Major repairs possible if you don’t from starter to new engine!!! Get your mower in for spring service this fall.
