Do your own lawnmower tune up

Always do your own tuneup for your lawnmower. Do not be fooled by the power shops telling you it cost like 150 or 200 to do a tuneup when it will cost 12 dollars or less to do it yourself. All you need is either buy the parts yourself  at a automobile  shop or purchase  a tune up kit for  your lawnmower.
A tuneup just consists of changing oil,spark plug,air filter,add some new oil,add some gas treatment  and sharpen  your mower blade.
You could  get a kit for like 12 dollars then sharpen  your mower blade òn your work bench. Make sure to brink your dirty engine oil to your local dept of public works location they will get rid of it for you for free .You just need to have approved  transport  container.
I just did my tune up now as its supposed to be in the 80s this weekend  and i need to make sure i keep up with the Joneses.
So yeah do your own tune up and youll have the last laugh at these power shops.You know what  im getting at you pull in there with  your lawn mower the guy comes from  the back of shop and makes believe  he is busy and was actually  doing  something. Then you say i need this tuned up. Then hes like well '  i cant  get to it today i cant promise  you when but, it will be done for sure in the next 3 weeks. ???
Your saying to yourself 3 weeks i need this thing tomorrow.
So dont be fooled i just did mine tonight it took me like 15 minutes. So when they say i should have it done in a few weeks there lying.
So stay away from these power shops and do it yourselves  its very rewarding!

   If your not sure when to cut to keep it high then make sure you dont mow in the summer until your grass looks like this
