View Full Version : Tiller, mower engines tips

Spring is coming :) and I thought I'd throw out a tip on small engines we use. Here's mine: I bought a neat tool that vacuums oil out of a engine dipstick. It slurps the oil out like me drinking a milk shake. So you don't get oil all over the place and it is very easy to use. I love it. To be honest before I use the Liquivac oil change system I almost never changed my tiller or lawn mowers oil... even though I knew I should. Hope this is helpful. It costs around 30 -35$ and is sold in Home Depot and Lowes... and on their website. Google liquivac.

Anybody else have any tips for small engines? :)

I could probably build a house, and I can landscape like crazy, but I know nothing about engines. My tip: take it to the professionals.

I usually just rent a tiller from Home Depot. Then I don't have to worry about changing the oil. :)

Don't forget to change the Air filter.
When you change the oil, consider Schaeffer Oil it contains Moly.
It has very good metal protection benefits.
You can dogile it to find a local source.
