Most lawn equipment maintenance is relatively easy, requiring only a small socket wrench set, some screwdrivers, and a small open-end wrench set. A good investment for maintaining lawnmower blades is a file and blade balancer. Both may be purchased at any small engine shop for under $15.
There are 2 different kinds of small motors. A 4-stroke motor is normally used for larger equipment. 4-stroke motors require the oil and the gas to go into separate areas and use regular motor oil. 2-Stroke motors are usually used for small equipment such as weed whackers, leaf blowers, and chainsaws. 2-stroke motors require the gas and special oil to be mixed together before putting it into the machine. 2-stroke motors are usually considerably louder while running than their 4-stroke counterparts.
