<p>&nbsp;</p> <h1>How to Winterize Your Equipment Chainsaw</h1> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>It&rsquo;s important to winterize your summer tools in order to keep them in top condition for next year. &nbsp;If you want to store your chainsaw, be sure to follow these steps to prepare for the winter ahead. &nbsp;Don&rsquo;t worry &ndash; you got this.&nbsp;</p> <p>First, secure the unit before storing or transporting. &nbsp;</p> <p>Prepare the unit for storage by thoroughly cleaning. Lightly oil external metal surfaces and chains, and wrap the chain in heavy paper or cloth.</p> <p>If you&rsquo;re planning on storing for more than 30 days, drain the gas tank or fuel system fully by letting the engine run until the fuel lines and carburetor are empty. &nbsp;</p> <p>Alternatively, you can add a fuel stabilizer to the fuel system to minimize the forming of fuel gum deposits during storage.</p> <p>Last, winterize your engine by removing the spark plug and pouring one teaspoon of 40:1, 2-cycle engine oil through the spark plug opening.&nbsp;</p> <p>Slowly pull the starter rope 8 to 10 times to distribute the oil, and then replace the spark plug. Clean the air filter, check the unit for loose screws, nuts and bolts, and replace damaged parts.</p> <p>Be sure to store in it&rsquo;s container or in a clean, well-ventilated area where fuel vapours cannot reach sparks or open flames.</p> <p>Look ahead to spring - get ahead of the game by winterizing your chainsaw, trimmer and leaf blower. &nbsp;Don&rsquo;t worry &ndash; you got this.</p>
