FAQ / Tips

Tips

  • Have model and serial number of the unit and engine for parts lookup.
  • Use highest grade (Premium) fuel in all outdoor power equipment. Better yet, use non-ethanol (pure) fuel.
  • Use StarTron to keep fuel fresh. Add to fuel when you pump. Best for equipment that will sit for long periods of time. (Snow Blowers, Generators, Pressure Washers, etc.)
  • Check your oil before each use of your equipment. Make sure it is up to the full line and not in the checkered area.
  • Do not wash your mower. It ruins the bearings and the deck.
  • Have your mower blade(s) sharpened frequently. Dull blades will cause your grass to have brown tips due to the blade tearing the grass off instead of cutting the grass off.
