Ag engineers offer annual lawnmower tuneup

March 19, 2012

Students from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) will offer their annual Lawnmower Clinic on March 30 and 31.

For a fee, ASABE will give push-type lawnmowers a tuneup, including starting the mower before service; cleaning under the deck; balancing and securing the blade; cleaning the air filter; checking, cleaning and gapping spark plugs; changing the oil; washing the mower; and starting the mower after service.

The fee for mowers dropped off at the Agricultural Engineering Building is $30. For mowers picked up, serviced and returned by ASABE students, the cost is $40.

Information and registration can be found online at or by emailing Josh Lounder at

Proceeds benefit the ASABE.
