Can I store riding mower outside?

You can store your mower outside in winter, but it isn't ideal. If you must store your lawn mower long-term in your yard, make sure it is elevated, so that it doesn't sit directly on the ground. It's a great outdoor lawn mower storage idea, and will give you peace of mind over the long winter months.

In this regard, where should I store my lawnmower outside?

Putting Your Lawn Mower to Rest for Winter

  1. It's a good idea to remove your lawn mower battery for the winter and store it in a cool, dry place. Be sure to store it away from gas cans, the water heater or furnace.
  2. Brush or hose off leaves, grass and mud from your mower.
  3. Store your mower in a dry, protected place such as your garage or a garden shed.

Additionally, will rain hurt my lawn mower? Lawn mower engines are designed to tolerate an occasional sprinkle so a little bit of rain on a lawn mower's engine shouldn't hurt it. When the rain passes, start your mower and let it run for a few minutes. The heat from the engine will drive out any moisture and keep the motor from rusting.

Similarly one may ask, can you store tools outside?

Hand Tool Storage Generally, most hand tools won't suffer damage from being stored in a cold garage or shed. Freezing temperatures, however, can make many metal or plastic parts brittle and particularly susceptible to breakage if you use them at very cold temperatures.

Can I hose off my lawn mower?

Yes, hosing off your mower is OK, but avoid spraying water on the engine and never use a pressure washer to clean your mower. Cleaning after every use is important, as the grass will eat all your metal components.
