Nice video, I do most of this things, but using your old Oil for a coat of paint under the machine? does it really help for the comercial mowers?
Other thing, is that I used my water hose to wash all the dirt and grass clippings under the deck, is this ok?

Also I would like to know how often do you sharp your blades? do you guys have diferent sets or are all the blades equal?
I do it every 2-3 weeks, mowing only 2 days a week, ( I like mine Razor Sharp, I feel it cuts faster)
Thanks guys!

He forgot to tell you to make sure that when you flip it over that the carb needs to be in the air on the up side of the mower when you put it on its side.
Otherwise oil will run into the carb and into the airfilter and soak it.
The oil will also run into the crankcase and make it so you cant pull it over. And if you try to without knowing about it; its gonna hurt your hand to.
Then you have to pull the spark plug out and get all the oil out of the crankcase and spark plug.
So put the carb right side up.
