How to Change the Oil in a Toro Lawn Mower
The maintenance of a lawn mower is essential to its performance and life span. Changing the oil on a regular basis can help the machine last for years. Changing the oil of a lawn mower is very similar to the same process for a car or truck. The major differences are the type of oil used and the location of major parts.
Locate the engine. In most Toro riding mowers, the engine is located behind or partially under the seat.
Locate the oil fill spout, oil filter and drain plug. Most Toro mowers will have a simple drain valve instead of a drain plug. However, some will have a drain plug.
Place the drain pan under the drain plug or valve. Make sure the pan is situated to limit the amount of oil spilled during the draining process.
Open the drain valve or remove the drain plug. Some drain valves will require a hose attachment to facilitate draining of the oil.
Remove the filler cap. This will help the oil drain from the engine. When the oil is finished draining, replace the drain plug or close the valve. In riding mowers the oil will drain on its own; however, with push mowers, the mower will have to be tilted to help the oil drain.
Remove the oil filter, if equipped. Wipe the mounting plate and install the new filter. The oil filter should be hand-tight. Turn the filter counterclockwise to loosen, then install the new filter by turning clockwise until hand-tight. You should replace the oil filter after every 200 hours of operation or during every other oil change.
Use a funnel to fill the oil to the proper level with SAE 30 weight oil. Make sure to check the oil level to ensure it is not overfull. The amount of oil can vary by model. Most push mowers will take less than 1 quart, while some riding mowers can take up to 3 quarts. Check the owner’s manual or check the dipstick while filling.

Watering Your Lawn Landscape
After a prolonged spring drought, we welcomed some much needed rain. While supplemental irrigation is crucial for maintaining healthy lawns and landscapes, there is nothing like rainfall to revive a water-deprived landscape. This time of year, the Saint John’s Water Management District limits landscape irrigation to two days per week. However, excessive watering, whether from rain or irrigation, can limit the success of lawns and landscape plants. So the best course of action is to water your landscape on an as-needed basis. For additional advice, please contact our office at (407)532-8188.
Should the Inside of My House Be Sprayed For Bugs?
In most situations the answer is no! Our veteran pest prevention experts can treat most active pest infestations from the exterior of the property. If interior treatments are deemed necessary, we take great care to use the safest products available and apply them in a manner that minimizes exposure to your family and pets. There is no purpose for routine pesticide applications inside your home. Contact us today for a free pest prevention evaluation and proposal.
New Sod Treatments
Many people choose to install sod this time of year. We highly recommend that all new sod be treated preventively (and sometimes curatively) with effective systemic fungicides and insecticides. Armyworms, sod webworms, chinch bugs, hunting billbugs, leaf spot and root-rot diseases are often problematic in new sod installations. Treating new sod soon following installation is important for pest disease prevention. Protect your investment – call us today at (407)532-8188 to schedule your new sod preventive insecticide fungicide application!
Beware of Stinging Insects
Most of us enjoy the outdoors in the summer. While spending time outside, we must be aware of stinging insects. Fire ants, bigheaded ants, wasps, and other stinging insects are very active this time of year. Contact us for more information on management of stinging insects in your home or landscape.
Is your landscape growing so fast that it’s difficult to keep up with weekly mowing and trimming? Healthy landscapes utilize nutrients at a fast rate this time of year. Proper fertilization is important to replace available nutrients. But with fertilizer restrictions in place, things can get tricky! Our fertilization program meets fertilization restrictions requirements while keeping your landscape healthy! Give us a call today at (407)532-8188 to schedule an appointment to review your landscape fertilization needs.
Do you enjoy gardening, swimming, or just relaxing outdoors? Mosquitoes may turn a fun-filled outdoors activity to a painful and potentially-dangerous nightmare. Not only are mosquitoes a nuisance, but some species may vector heartworms to pets and even viral human diseases such as Zika. So if you are planning an outdoors event or just want to suppress mosquitoes on your property, give EPLS a call at (407)532-8188 today.
