Mowers are an essential piece of outdoor equipment, and keeping them in proper condition ensures they can continue to do the job you need. Rust is a common problem for mowers and can cause serious damage if left unchecked. Fortunately, there are ways to protect your mower and other machines from rust, allowing them to last longer and work more efficiently.
Prevention is Key
The best way to keep your mower from rusting is to prevent rust from forming in the first place. Taking the time to properly clean your mower after use and ensuring that it is dry before putting it away is a great way to extend the life of your mower. But most of us do not have the time or inclination to do this. [Unplug the mower or disconnect the spark plug to avoid injury while cleaning your mower deck.]
However, various products on the market are also designed to help protect your mower from rust. These products can be applied to any exposed metal parts and help to create a barrier between the metal and the elements, preventing rust from forming or slowing its progression once it has started.
Lanoguard Rust Prevention
Some rust prevention treatments, like repainting, require price-prohibitive preparation, like sanding the job back to bear rust-free metal and then priming and painting. To do this properly, you would have to strip all of the attachments from the mower deck, like spindles, antiscalping wheels etc. This is just impractical.
However, Lanoguard is an innovative rust prevention product designed to provide long-lasting protection without the need for quite so much preparation. Once your mower has been roughly cleaned, Lanoguard is applied to any exposed metal parts, creating a long-lasting barrier between the metal and the elements that help to prevent rust from forming.
Since 2011 Lanoguard has been protecting heavy-duty industrial vehicles and machinery from the harshest of corrosive environments. It hermetically seals the surface so oxidation can’t occur and rust can’t form nor continue. Lanoguard is Jet wash resistant to 3000psi or 200 bar and should not be displaced by normal cleaning and will keep protecting even after using a washout port to clean your mower. And it is ecologically sound, so it can be used safely near ponds and plants.
Lanoguard is also used by thousands of vehicle owners to protect their cars from rust to the same industrial standard. MAD Mowers is now bringing this protection to your garden machinery.
