There are two types of people when it comes to working outdoors in the spring – those who can’t wait to get started and those who consider it a chore. No matter who you are, get the job done right with the proper outdoor power equipment. These machines are going to require gasoline to operate, so here are several projects that will become simpler when you use an EZ-Pour® spout to fuel up.
Mowing the Lawn
As the grass begins to grow, so does your anticipation for cutting it right back down. Think of it like a battle between the homeowner and their yard over who gets to stand taller. While scythes had their time as an essential instrument, gas-powered lawn mowers are now the most popular tools for cutting the grass. One option is a riding mower, which allows you to sit down while steering around your property. Another option is a walking mower that can be pushed from behind.
Cutting and Trimming Branches
Following a long winter, a few branches from your trees will barely be hanging on by a thread. Time to break out a gas-powered pole saw, used for reaching higher places that you can’t normally access safely. Chainsaws often come in handy for lower jobs, and log splitters will help you make a pile of firewood faster than you can say “hatchet.” If your bushes just need to be cleaned up a little, hedge trimmers effectively eliminate any unruliness.
Digging in the Dirt
Smaller digging projects can be handled with a shovel or post hole digger, but don’t waste your time with these primitive tools when installing a fence or building a deck. What you need is an auger that runs on gasoline and can drill a six inch hole about 30 inches deep. This will not only reduce your fatigue, but it will also ensure the consistency of the dig.
Preparing the Land for Plant Life
If you want to plant crops, flowers, or just about any other kind of plant life in the ground, look no further than using a motorized tiller. With this machine, you can adjust the depth of the till to break up the surrounding soil while smoothly pushing it up and down each row.
Investing in a Back-Up Plan
The summer heat is approaching with every spring day, so invest in a gasoline generator now that will come in handy in case of an emergency. You can determine the right size for you by considering what you will need to power during an outage. The combination of A/C and refrigeration alone would require a portable generator. Don’t forget to take caution by removing any excess fuel when putting it into storage.
