The Diesel Powered Equipment Technology student club at Illinois Central College will have its annual “Lawn Mower Summerization” from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. April 2.

Individuals may drop off their push mowers at the Diesel Powered Equipment Technology Building, located at the north edge of Parking Lot F, on the ICC East Peoria campus. There will be signs posted on the campus roads.

Students will perform preventative maintenance, including cleaning below the mower deck, sharpening and balancing the blade, changing the engine oil, installing a new spark plug and cleaning the air filter.

This is maintenance work only, not repair work for operating malfunctions.

Mowers may be picked up from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. April 6 at the same location.

Reservations are required and may be made by calling 694-5416. A limited number of spaces are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Cost for this service is $30.
