Pedestrian Garden Petrol Mower Servicing Second Hand Mower Care
The majority of households and commercial gardeners have their petrol mower serviced in the autumn or winter when the grass growing season has finished.
Most lawnmowers require an oil change / service every 50 hours. For the household gardener this might equate to one annual service. For the commercial gardener, this might mean a monthly oil change. If you maintain the engine of your mower as recommended by the manufacturer the reliability of your lawn mower will increase.
Clive’s Gardening Services can offer a collection and delivery service for a small charge
Should you require an update on the progress of your turf management machine service, we can offer a text service to keep you up to date.
Prices will vary according to make and model.
