Zero-Turn Mower Maintenance Tips

Use these tips to keep your zero-turn mower running strong for years to come:

  • Follow the manufacturer's recommended maintenance schedule. The recommendations not only keep your mower running well, they make it safe to ride. Neglecting a step could cause the mower to malfunction, and potentially cause an injury.
  • If you're not sure how to do any of the procedures mentioned above, such as checking the spark plug gap, you can use our step-by-step lawn mower how-to articles or take your mower (or the plug) to a local servicing dealer.
  • Keep a calendar of when each maintenance check was last performed, so you never forget to change the oil or lube the deck wheels.

Find a Cub Cadet service dealer near you to handle maintenance and repairs you are unfamiliar with.
