I’m just getting started with the new reviews for 2017 so I thought I’d ask you what’s highest on your priority list for lawn equipment this year.
Yes, this site has focused on Lawn Tractors and Zero-turns in the past but I’m open to helping you decide on any type of equipment.
Everyone is welcome to let me know in the comment section below. I’ll leave the comments open until April 1st.
I’ll list a few items below to help jog your memory. It’s not required, but your city/state, lawn size, lawn type – rough, hilly, old, new. If you are looking at specific brand. That is always helpful to help you find just the right product.
Just some ideas:

Zero-Turns under $3000
Yard/Lawn Tractors $1500 to $2500

How to maintain my lawn tractor, lawn mower…..
Yes, You need a new Gas Can!
With today’s fuels you need a gas can that seals tight. It helps the fuel last longer and the escaping vapors won’t wreck the environment. But the biggest problem is find one that works. The cheap ones ($20 or more now) don’t have vents so it takes forever to fill the tank on your lawn tractor. The cheap ones are also flimsy and the spouts break after the first year.
Well, I’ve found one brand that works great! It’s vented inside the spout so it pours fuel quickly yet seals tightly when not in use. I’ll give you links at Amazon for two sizes. I suggest buying the size so that you don’t keep more than a month of fuel around the house.
No-Spill 1405 2-1/2-Gallon Poly Gas Can. A good size for snow blowers and push mowers.
No-Spill 1450 5-Gallon Poly Gas Can (CARB Compliant) This one has a second handle in the back so it is very easy to use and hang onto when pouring into your fuel tank. A good size for lawn tractors and zero-turns.
If you have a problem holding a gas can the SureCan is a great can. It’s very comfortable to use to use and built well.
Fuel Stabilizer: When I go to the gas station and buy fuel I always put fuel stabilizer in the storage tank. It helps keep the fuel fresh and some also clean your carb and fuel system without messing it up. There a man good brands but I’ve used
SeaFoam for years and it’s always worked well. I use 2 tablespoons per gallon of fuel.
