Spring Lawn Edger and Weed Trimmer Maintenance and Tune Up Tips

Lowe's Home 101 team shows you how to maintain your lawn edgers and weed trimmers with some tune up tips that will help keep your yard looking great. Getting your gas-powered tools up and running requires a few simple steps. You should replace your spark plug, put in a fresh air filter, and make sure you have the gas and oil mixture on hand to top off the tank. For trimmers, you'll also want to make sure you have enough spare line or an extra set of blades on hand - install a new spool or blades if necessary. A shot of lubricant will help grease the gears and keep the trimmer running at maximum weed-whacking power. The nice thing about electric yard tools is you don't have to worry about re-fueling or oil - but you should make sure you have the proper length of outdoor-rated extension cord so you can reach all corners of your yard. Before you get to work, there are a few things you can do to get the best out of your electric tools. Make sure the tool is unplugged and give the blades a good cleaning with a detail brush. And a little lubricant in the moving parts will help your tools edge with efficiency. The same applies for your hedge trimmers. Whenever you're using power tools in the yard, be sure to wear your protective eyewear, hearing protection, appropriate clothes, and footwear!
