Annual UD Push Lawnmower Tune-Up April 9-10

March 10, 2010 under CANR News, Events

Looking to save a little money on your lawn care in these tight financial times? UD’s Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity for agriculture, the Society of Automotive Engineers Club, and the Engineering Technology Club are once again offering a push lawn mower tune-up service on April 9 and 10, rain or shine. Since 2000, this annual event has serviced over 4,500 push mowers.

The tune-up—provided by trained students and alumni members of the clubs—includes an oil change, spark plug replacement, air filter check and cleaning, blade sharpening, and power washing. Service performed is tune-up only; no repairs or riding mowers are accepted.

The cost of the tune-up is $35.00, the same as it has been for the past four years. Payment in the form of cash or check may be made at drop off.

Drop off times are from 2 to 8 p.m. on Friday, April 9, and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 10. Customers can pick up their mowers on Saturday from 1 to 6 p.m. for the first 300 mowers taken on Friday, or on Sunday, April 11 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the remaining mowers. All mowers must be picked up by 2 p.m. on Sunday. Any mowers not picked up by Sunday will be charged a storage fee

Lawnmowers (no riding mowers) may be dropped off and picked up in the parking lot behind Worrilow and Townsend halls on UD’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources campus at 531 South College Avenue, across from the Chrysler Plant, just north of the Fred Rust Ice Arena. Look for signs for the tune-up.
