winter storage question Original Message Dec 4, 2006 10:28 am
This is a goofy question but here goes.
When storing my Toro lawnmower for the winter, do you A) drain and replace the oil, B) drain the oil and replace with fresh oil in the spring or C) store it with the old oil and replace with fresh oil in the spring.
(I'm planning on following the recommendations including removal of spark plug and a squirt of oil into the cylinder.)
Thanks Nibbler. I'm not talking Alaska cold, but Maine cold is pretty nippy as well ;) I followed the manual to a T using the maual procedures as you noted. Now it's in storage in my shed, where it'll be dry. I'll doublecheck with Toro to make sure that's OK.
