It’s Time to Get Lawn Mowers Ready

Like many others this spring, Galen Rouanzlin is looking for the perfect lawn mower. He says he is currently using his antique 1940’s Allis Chalmers tractor and it might be time for a change.

"You see this new stuff maybe try it out but like I say I wouldn’t buy one without making sure I can mow," said Rouanzlin.

American Pride President, Ryan Dodson says they have the latest models out for customers and people should get the mower that best fits their lawn’s needs.

"Small yards if you’re under an acre then most of the time its a lawn tractor or a small zero turn and you get up to an acre and a half two acres plus it should be a garden tractor or a little bit heavier zero turn,"said Dodson.

Along with purchasing new and used mowers, customers are also stopping in to get free estimates and repairs on existing machinery. Parts Manager for American Pride, Frank Dietz says if people follow a few simple rules this spring they’ll improve the productivity of their mowers.

"The most important thing they can do to keep their mower running at peak performance is oil change, change the air filter, do a tune up on it about once a year," said Dietz.

Another tip for mowers is to never let the grass exceed two to three inches in height for optimum performance.
