Check the speed control damper

Feldmann Power will compare the feel or stiffness between both traction levers from neutral to full forward and back to neutral looking for leaked out oil.

Check the dump valve on hydro pump & hydro motor

Riding Mower Pre-Season & Post-Season Services

Pre-Season Inspection Service

Change Spark Plug

Spark plugs should be clean and sharp so that they can produce combustion-generating sparks. If you let your spark plugs get too worn out or dirty, they struggle to do that job well.

Check The Belts

During a visual inspection, Feldmann Power will make sure that any belts on the mower look free from any splits and cracks. We will also look for signs of twisted belts. Many times belts may not look that old, but they have twisted and are riding inside-out on the pulley. Feldmann Power will replace any worn or damaged belts.

Check The Air Filter

Feldmann Power will check the air filter on your mower. We will either clean or replace your air filter based on your mower’s manufacturer specs.

Change The Oil

Sharpen The Blades and Check Their Balance

A sharp blade will get the upcoming work done a whole lot better than the dull one. A sharp blade will cut the grass cleanly, allowing for the cut grass to heal faster. This will result in healthier, greener grass. A dull blade will rip and tear the grass apart, which leaves your grass ragged and prone to fungal growth. Feldmann Power will sharpen and balance your mower blade.

Clean The Carburetor

Feldmann Power will disassemble and thoroughly clean your mower’s carburetor. This will remove any gunk from old gas and dirt.

Check Tire Pressure

Just like your car, your lawn mower’s tire pressure is essential to peak performance. Feldmann Power will make sure to fill your tires to the recommended pressure levels.

Change Spark Plug

Spark plugs should be clean and sharp so that they can produce combustion-generating sparks. If you let your spark plugs get too worn out or dirty, they struggle to do that job well.

Change the Oil

Change the oil and filter to ensure your machine is free of slude and harmful oil deposits.

Clean or Replace the Air Filter

Air filters ensure proper air flow to the carburetor. We clean or replace them as necessary. 

Add Fuel Stabilizer

Check the tires

Feldmann Power will inflate your mower’s tires to their proper pressure to prevent damage as they can lose pressure over the winter. You should also protect tires from cold concrete by parking the mower on cardboard or other insulating material.
