If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know that we talk about the importance of keeping your power equipment maintained on an annual basis. This isn’t just for safety reasons and to keep your equipment running smoothly—it’s also to help you get the most out of your power equipment! Here at Anderson Power Equipment, we have a helpful service department staffed by friendly, knowledgeable professionals who can help you with routine maintenance as well as repairs and upgrades when they are needed.
Safety first: Proper maintenance is key to getting your equipment up and running for as long as possible. Bring it in to Anderson’s Service Department for an inspection from our expert technicians, who are prepared to fix anything from greasing a chain saw to rebuilding a generator. Knowing how equipment works can go a long way toward extending its life—and reducing potential safety hazards. After all, some services options could prolong your power equipment’s lifecycle and ensure you don’t have any malfunctions or other problems that could put you or others at risk while using them. For example, adjusting wheels on a lawn mower might seem like unnecessary maintenance—but it could help reduce vibrations and ultimately extend its lifetime by years.
How to extend the life of your power equipment
The cost of power equipment is not just about what you pay to buy it. It’s also about how much it costs to keep it running for as long as possible. That’s why Anderson Outdoor Power Equipment offers optional service contracts for many products purchased from Anderson’s store. With a service contract, you can rest easy knowing that if your equipment does fail, Anderson will cover all parts and labor—and you won’t have to pay an arm and a leg to have us come out and fix it. Plus, we’ll schedule time with you ahead of time so there are no surprises! Options range in price based on how long you want protection: one year or three years.
Tips for being safe around machinery
Always use proper safety equipment when operating power equipment. The hazards of using power tools are serious and can be deadly if you’re not careful. Following simple safety tips can help keep your family safe from injury or even death. #1 – Wear eye and ear protection: Proper safety glasses and earmuffs should always be used when operating any kind of tool, especially power tools. Safety glasses will help protect your eyes from flying objects or other airborne debris while earmuffs will protect your hearing in case things get too loud. #2 – Be aware of moving parts: When working with machinery like a rototiller, it’s easy to become distracted by something nearby or lose focus on what you’re doing at hand.
