If you want to make sure that you are correctly storing your mowers and machinery, then there are a few simple steps that you need to take. If you want to find out more, then simply look below.

Drain Fuel and Oil

Drain Fuel and Oil

The first thing that you need to do is take the time to drain any fuel and oil. This will help you to reduce the chance of a fire occurring. This is especially the case if you do not plan to use your mower or machinery for quite some time, as it will help to prolong the life of your investment.

Placing an Old Carpet under the Item

Another thing that you need to do is place an old carpet under the item. If you do not have access to an old carpet, then using some cardboard could be a good idea. By using cardboard, you can ensure that any leakages are absorbed while preventing your mower from scratching on the floor as items are moved in and out of the unit.

Never Stack Items on your Machinery

It can be tempting to stack items on top of your mower or machinery, especially if you have a lot of things to store. You should avoid this if possible because this is the best way for you to cause damage to your items. It’s a good idea to put your mower into the unit first, followed by other items so you can ensure that there is plenty of room to manoeuvre your machinery into position.
