Storing Your Equipment

What should I do to store my equipment for the season?

Protect Your Investment

Perform some simple seasonal storage and startup maintenance in the spring, fall or whenever you store your equipment for prolonged periods of time. 

Equipment Storage Check List


Top off the fuel tank before storing. 

Filling the tank helps prevent moisture from condensing in your fuel tank, and stops rust and scale before it starts.

Before you fill up, add Briggs & Stratton Fuel Stabilizer to the fuel*, then run the engine for a few minutes to circulate the additive through the carburetor. The fuel stabilizer will help prevent gum from forming in the fuel system or on essential carburetor parts. 

* Note: if you choose Not to use the Briggs & Stratton Fuel Stabilizer, or if the engine is using fuel-containing alcohol, such as gasohol, remove all fuel from the tank and run the engine until it stops from lack of fuel. 


While the engine is still warm, change the oil and the oil filter (if equipped). 

Briggs & Stratton 4-cycle motor oil is through your local dealer or retailer.


Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery terminal, on units so equipped. 

Remove the battery. Your battery should be stored in a cool, dry place. 

Clean the battery terminals using the Briggs & Stratton Battery Terminal Cleaner, and coat all terminals with the Briggs & Stratton Terminal Protector.

Cleaning Your Equipment

Don’t store your engine dirty. Clean the engine surface of debris, chaff or grass. 

With the spark plug lead removed from the engine, use a garden hose to wash away any residual grass clippings. 

Once the majority of the grass clippings have been removed, it will be easier to identify a clump of grass that may be interfering with blade motion. 

Using a wooden stick or other implement other than your hands and feet, remove the offending material and wash the deck thoroughly.
