Last fall I put my mowing tractor in the shop with every intention of doing the needed clean up and maintenance soon. Well it got shoved further back several times and forgot about. Today after work I cleaned up some workspace in the shop and started on the maintenance. I removed the deck and cleaned it out underneath. Greased the spindles and sharpened the blades. Tomorrow I will adjust the points, set the timing, grease the differential and steering spindles, clean the engine and driveline and remount the deck. After that it will be on to the first cut of the season. Looking forward to the seat time.

Looks like this needs to be done more often, might work a bit better throughout the year. Thanks for the pics.
