Practical Ways to Avoid Frequent Small Engine Repair of Your Leaf Blower The time is here to take your leaf blowers out and clean your lawn. Before you turn it on in full throttle and blow the leaves off your yard you should check if it is in good condition. If you have not used your blower for a long time chances are that it has suffered from disrepair. You might have to take it for small engine repair in Framingham if the damage is critical. However you can avoid all that if you maintain your leaf blower and use it in the proper way. Maintaining your leaf blower is a series of basic tasks that you can carry out easily. The leaf blower is very helpful during the fall and you have to use it more often during this time of the year. That is why you must make sure that it is in top condition throughout the year. Follow these maintenance tips that help you keep your leaf blower in proper shape so that you don’t run into problems when you need it the most. Check for Damaged Parts Whether you use the leaf blower frequently or rarely its components are prone to wear and tear. If you feel a glitch while using it don’t neglect it. Check for the source of the problem and if you cannot find it take your blower to a workshop that provides small engine repair. If you don’t do this as soon as possible other parts could break down as well and the cost of repair would go higher. Always look out for gas leaks frayed cords loose tubes and switches not working. Clean the Air Filter The air filter of your leaf blower is one of the most important components of the whole machine and must be in good condition at all times. Locate the air filter unit and remove the cover. Take the air filter out and wash it with detergent and

water. Rinse it well and dry it. You can also coat it with oil before placing it back into the unit. Clean it Regularly Your leaf blower looks good and performs well for a long time when you clean it regularly. This prevents dirt from building up and blocking its valves. If you have an electric-powered leaf blower wipe its outer surface and check for any cracks or damages on the outside. If it runs on gas you have to keep the air filter and the spark plug clean of dirt buildup. Safety Tips That was about maintaining your leaf blower. Now pay attention to certain guidelines that you must follow to ensure your own safety and of those around you. Leaf blowers can generate enough wind energy to blow debris at speeds of 200 mph or even more and inhaling that could cause serious complications. Keep the following safety considerations in mind when you use your leaf blower. 1. Wear long pants and shoes to prevent harm from flying debris. 2. Wear gloves with good grip so that you can hold the blower in position and prevent blisters or cuts. 3. Wear safety goggles to protect your eyes from dust. 4. Since a leaf blower generates a lot of noise which can cause hearing damage always wear protection on your ears. Go for protection gears that follow industrial standards. 5. A dust mask is also handy so that you don’t inhale the dust particles and other pollutants while working with the leaf blower. 6. Before you begin to blow the leaves go through your yard and remove rocks branches and other objects that could hurt you or others. 7. The wind should be at your back while you work. 8. Keep people and pets away from the yard. Make sure no one is within 50 feet of the area you are using the leaf blower at. 9. Close the home windows and car windows. 10. Try to control the air velocity of your leaf blower so that you can blow the leaves without disturbing the dust. 11. Run the blower at the lowest throttle to save fuel and produce less noise. 12. Never use the leaf blower inside your home or on the roof.
