    Hey just got done reading your how to winterize a lawn mower and was reading number 4 use a garden hose to clean the bottom of the mower deck. Which side do you turn the mower over to make sure that you DO NOT HAVE THE OIL COME out of the mower, ie, I have done this.
    And do you air dry the mower before you put it back to wherever you are storing it so it does not start to get rusty, like mine is and it is relatively new, by this I mean let it dry outside of wherever you are keeping it. Believe me the oil thing has happened a few times which has ruined a filter.
