We were recently talking about how not draining gas out of your carb can cause problems after winter. Well, here is an article talking about just that. Tom is making good money on cleaning out these carbs too.

Have you ever thought about offering these services in your area?

Snow blower tune ups?

Lawn care companies keep machines rollin' (http://www.post-trib.com/business/705818,snowblowers.article) - Tom Riggs, owner of Riggs Mowers & More Inc. at 1656 U.S. 30 in Valparaiso, said his store received 20 to 40 broken snowblowers every day over the last week. With repairs costing anywhere from $60 to $160 per snowblower, it's been good business.

Lawn care store owner Dave Burke said the main cause for repair is old fuel left in snowblowers since last winter. His shop has taken apart and cleaned most of the damaged machines' carburetors.
