What are the advantages of maintaining my lawnmower?

Regular maintenance is important for the safety and performance of your lawn equipment. There are benefits for your lawn as well. Many lawn problems result from dull or poorly balanced mower blades that can shred grass, leaving it susceptible to fungus, disease, and infestation. Regular maintenance can help keep your lawn healthy by keeping your mower blades sharp and in balance. Both ensure a clean, even cut.
