How to get the most out of your lawn, snow tools

Cecil Whig - - OURCECIL -

Re­mem­ber when you ac­tu­ally had to leave the house to do things?

To­day, you could use your smart­phone to do all your hol­i­day shop­ping, or­der gro­ceries and have them de­liv­ered, and then watch all the Os­car nom­i­nated films with­out ever get­ting off the couch.

It’s pretty amaz­ing, but for all the con­ve­nience we en­joy with our dig­i­tal lifestyle, some­times you need a hands-on, per­son­al­ized ap­proach. And no one knows this bet­ter than those who have taken up the DIY lifestyle, or the mil­lions of Amer­i­cans who ob­sess over their lawn.

There might be an app for ev­ery­thing, but when it comes to the tools you use to keep your lawn in shape, your best bet is to find an out­door power equip­ment dealer who can share their ex­per­tise with you. Here are five rea­sons why.

1. Get per­son­al­ized ser­vice. Ev­ery­one cares for their lawn dif­fer­ently. One size doesn’t fit all, and this kind of per­son­al­ized care needs per­son­al­ized op­tions. Work­ing with a dealer can help you learn what’s best for you and best for your lawn.

2. Make the best de­ci­sions. With so much lawn equip­ment out there, mak­ing up your mind

(BPT)—

can some­times be over­whelm­ing. Deal­ers can help you sort through all the prod­ucts and ex­plain the dif­fer­ent op­tions avail­able to you, such as choos­ing be­tween gaspow­ered and bat­tery-pow­ered out­door power equip­ment.

3. Learn about ser­vice and main­te­nance. Deal­ers of­fer in­valu­able ad­vice that even yard­work vet­er­ans can ben­e­fit from. They can tell you the best way to win­ter­ize and care for the next gen­er­a­tion of lawn care prod­ucts. In ad­di­tion, they work closely with top man­u­fac­tur­ers so they can give you valu­able in­for­ma­tion about sales, pro­mo­tions and war­ranty of­fers. Deal­ers also have ser­vice shops that can fix bro­ken equip­ment or give tools a tune-up to pre­pare for spring lawn care work.

4. Learn about equip­ment ac­ces­sories. Deal­ers have been work­ing in the lawn care in­dus­try for years. With this level of ex­per­tise, they can point you to­wards the equip­ment ac­ces­sories that will help you get the most out of your out­door power equip­ment. Deal­ers stock and sell the largest va­ri­ety of ac­ces­sories for your out­door power equip­ment needs.

5. Tr y be­fore you buy. There’s a rea­son you don’t buy a car with­out driv­ing it. The same should ap­ply to lawn equip­ment. You want some­thing that feels com- fort­able in your hands, that isn’t too heavy and has the power you need. Most of the time, you re­ally have to use some­thing be­fore you know if it’s right or not, and some deal­ers will al­low you to try out prod­ucts at the store be­fore mak­ing a de­ci­sion.
