ST. CLAIRSVILLE - Snowy weather is around the corner and now is the time to invest in snow blowers and plows and properly store summer equipment for the season.

According to Roger Morrison, store manager of Lashley Tractor in St. Clairsville, the store will offer a winter special after Thanksgiving until the end of February, during which both new and existing customers can have their tractors, mowers and other lawn equipment serviced in preparation for winter. This will include cleaning, blade sharpening, and other preparations.

The store also offers pick-up and delivery of items.

"It's always good to have your equipment serviced in the fall as opposed to the spring," Morrison said. "That way the equipment isn't just sitting around and it's good to go in the spring. Making sure it's cleaned out and dry prevents rusting from any moisture trapped inside."

Morrison also suggested storing batteries in a warm temperature for the season to increase the longevity of your mower or tractor.

Fall is also a great time to invest in snow plows and blowers, Morrison said. Lashley offers standard and heavy duty Kubota snow blowers for tractors of various sizes and horsepowers, designed to move all types of snow, whether it's powdery, crusted, icy or wet. The store also has front-end loaders that can be used for snow removal.

Lashley offers a wide range of Kubota products including residential and commercial mowers, sub-compact tractors, compact tractors, standard utility and mid-size tractors.

Lashley also keeps generators in stock, a good buy for the winter in case the power goes off during storms.
