For the non-US readers of this blog, something we have to do every year here is winterize the lawn equipment — that is prepare to put these machines to bed for the winter since they won’t be used again until March or so. Normally I have this taken care of WAY before now, but for one reason or another, I’ve been late getting this done. I took care of the lawn mower and the string trimmer last week, but June’s rotary tiller was with a friend of hers so it didn’t get done at the same time. Which is why I’m just getting to it today. So I drained as much fuel as I could pump out of the tank and they started it up to burn up the rest and also heat up the oil so that I could drain that too. The tiller ran a lot longer than I thought it would — there was more fuel in the system than I expected — so neighbors, my apologies for disturbing the peace. But at least now all of the power equipment is tucked up for the cold winter months.
