Putting Lawnmowers away for winter ? (How To)

I learned many years ago to scape the underside of the mower deck and get it clean. Leaving old grass stuck to the underside can cause rust to start and weaken the deck.
As far as gas, I leave a small amount in the tank with stabil, and it always starts on the first or second pull in the spring, don't believe sitting for 3 or 4 months with gas in it hurts anything. I do change oil before putting away though. That prevents old oil with any contaminates in it, to do any damage to the engine.
