Getting your tools ready for Winter

9 Oct 2014

It has been a long time coming this year but now the trees are looking bare and there is a slight chill to the air its time to start thinking about storing your tools.

Garden tools:

Now the hedges are pruned and lawns are looking lovely we should look at keeping your gardening equipment in the best possible condition so they will be ready and willing to help you when the warmer weather comes back. It is easy to forget and time does have a habit of just passing us by but if you look after your tools they will in return look after you for many years.

Where petrol tools are concerned such as lawn mowers, brush cutters and strimmers it is best practise to drain them of all fuel before hiding them away in the garage or shed (in the case of a 4 stroke machine drain the oil as well as the petrol) . Dispose of the old fuel and be sure to use fresh fuel and oil next season. 
Look at cleaning and sharpening blades , tightening up screws and replacing broken parts, if you are not confident in any of these tasks or for peace of mind why not book your machine in for a service with a authorised Ryobi Service Agent?


When storing and charging your batteries over the cooler months one thing to keep in mind is that the newer style Lithium batteries are a bit like us and do not like the cold and have been known not to charge at all if they are too cold. To optimise the charging of your batteries try and keep them at room temperature, try not store them in places like sheds or in a works van.
