Tips on Getting Your Trailer Ready for the Mowing Season

By Mark Thomas, Mark Thomas Builder

With the longer than usual winter we’ve had, we’ve had to wait a bit extra this year to get our mowing on.

Thankfully, that seems to be coming to an end now - although I’ve seen some pros post pictures of snow where they are! - and mowing season is upon us.

To help you get ready for the year ahead, I’ve put this short video together on prepping your trailer.

Quick recap of the main points:

  • Check your ball hitch assembly

  • Check the battery on your trailer brake pack (especially if it’s between 3-5 years old)

  • Check your locking hitch pin

  • Test all your running lights, turn signals and brake lights

  • Spray any areas where there’s metal on metal

  • Check the torque on your lug nuts so they meet your manufacturer’s recommendation

  • Lube your bearings to avoid burnout

  • Check the tread on your tires, as well as the pressure

  • Make sure you have a spare tire

I hope these tips help, and have a great 2018 season!
