Pick the Right Shed for your Lawnmower
When you are building a designated shed, it can be difficult to know exactly what you need. Lawn equipment, such as lawnmowers, require protection from the elements if you want to get the absolute most out of a lawnmower. In order to create the optimal shed for your investment, you’ll need to consider the size weight and dimensions of your lawnmower. A push lawnmower is very different from a heavy-duty lawnmower. A heavy duty lawn mower can weigh upwards of one thousand pounds; this weight can break or otherwise damage flimsy sheds.
You need to make sure that your shed can handle your lawnmower, here are a few things to consider when building your shed.
Firstly, will your shed be just to store your lawn mower or will you store other things in it as well? Depending on your needs, you may have to consider which style is best for you. For example, if you want to have additional loft storage space, a shed with high walls may be an option. You can also take aesthetics into account when selecting your shed’s style. Be sure you understand what the styles you are considering can actually accommodate. You don’t want to have a shed built only to find out it can’t actually accommodate your lawn mower.
Just like lawnmowers can be different sizes, so can sheds, measure twice, build once. Be absolutely sure that your lawnmower can not only fit in the shed but the doorway as well. You’ll also want additional space for maneuvering and maybe some extra storage space for tools, a jerrycan, or parts.
A heavy duty lawn mower is similar to a car. With that in mind, you’ll want to consider maneuvering when you have your shed built. You’ll also need to consider the ramp that will allow you to drive your lawnmower into the shed. You’ll want to make sure that your ramp is durable and able to handle the weight of your lawnmower. Be sure that your ramp is wide enough to drive on as well.
As we mentioned before cheap flooring can reap havoc on flimsy shed floors. If you have a heavy duty lawn mower be sure to, opt for reinforced flooring. You don’t want to damage your shed in an effort to protect your lawnmower.
Vents are important for your shed. Because a heavy-duty lawn mower uses gasoline and produces exhaust, dangerous fumes should be able to easily escape. This is extremely important if you are emailing to do any work or maintenance in your shed.
