Some years early. Some years on-time, other years oops
Every other month all year long...When do you usually test your machines for the first time after summer?
just curious why,you change oil in the fall instead of spring? I was always told it’s better to sit with fresh oil.I do my annual oil change, overall lubrication, and systems check on "a nice Saturday in October."
I use non-ethanol gas with a shot of seafoam, so sitting for a month or two before use is a non-issue with that gas.
I've also read it might be "better" to change the oil in the spring, but meh, I don't consider it a big deal either way. But the main reason I never do it in the spring is because you never really know, at the time, when the last use of the season actually is! by May its safe to assume the snow is done, but by then mowing has started, and I'm deep into Spring yard chores. (My wife and I do a lot of gardening, and I have a G-scale garden railroad). So I simply don't want to bother with the snowblowers in the spring, too much else going on, and I don't feel it's terribly important, thanks mainly to the the ethanol-free gas. It's totally fine for the snowblowers to just sit until October, usually about 7 months. My snowblowers are always parked in the garage, totally untouched, no gas drained from tank or carb, from the last snowfall until the following October. Been doing it this way for 12 years now, never a problem! (I have a '71 and a '91 Ariens)just curious why,you change oil in the fall instead of spring?
