UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Penn State student chapter of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) will hold its annual Lawnmower Clinic April 7 and 8.
The clinic provides an opportunity for the Penn State community to have their push-type mowers checked and prepped by ASABE members, and for the student organization to raise funds for its events and activities.
Cost of the service is $35 for mowers dropped off at the High Bay garage off of East Park Avenue, or $50 for pickup and delivery.
As part of the service, the engineering students will:
- Start the mower before servicing;
- Clean under the deck;
- - Sharpen and balance the blade;
- Secure the blade;
- Clean the air filter;
- Check, clean and gap the spark plug;
- Change the oil;
- Wash the mower; and
- Start the mower after servicing.
Anyone interested in dropping off a mower, or having a student pick up/return their mower, must fill out this form.
Questions about the clinic may be directed to ASABE president Chris Valdez at email@example.com.
