Many consumers may not have the money to buy a brand-new tractor, but there are still plenty of ways for a used tractor to be environmentally friendly.
Green lawn care may be especially on the mind of homeowners in April, as the month marks both Earth Day and Arbor Day. Those who own used tractors can celebrate by maintaining their machines.
Through keeping filters clean and oil changed, owners of used tractors can improve the efficiency of their mowers, which will mean a reduction in gasoline consumption. Another helpful tip is to make sure cutting blades are sharp, as this can also improve performance and lead to healthier lawns. Using less gas not only helps the environment, but also keeps more money in a lawn owner's pocket.
Reducing mowing frequency is an additional way homeowners and property managers can be more environmentally friendly. They may also consider reducing how much they water their lawns and select heartier grass breeds. Eco-friendly fertilizers are another option for helping grasses grow with less impact on the environment.
