Time for a tune-up?

Sure, low temperatures have been inching down toward single digits recently, but living in the Show-Me State sometimes requires a healthy dose of optimism. The days are getting longer now, and before you know it birds will be singing and your grass will be green and growing — and growing and growing and growing.

When that happens, students in MU’s Agricultural Systems Management Club want to make sure you have the right tool for the job. That’s why each year at this time, they offer their popular lawnmower tune-up clinic.

Customers can drop off their push-type mowers at the east end of the Agricultural Engineering Building on East Campus Road from 7 to 9 a.m. or 4 to 6 p.m. on March 11 and 12. Pick-up times will be during the same hours on March 15 and 16. Over the weekend, club members will power wash the mowers, sharpen blades, clean the air filter and change oil and plugs for $30. If necessary, additional shop labor is $30 an hour. With questions, call 882-2731.
