    I've done searches and find nothing but advice on how to remove it, etc...

    What should I coat it with, I've heard oil, but what kind, how should I apply it, how much, etc....

    Also, what about the motor?

    Drain everything or???

    Should I cover just the hopper or the entire thing with a tarp or??

    I adjust the chains, change oil, greese fittings, use chain oil on chains, paint inside of hopper, add a stabiliser to the gas, run for a few minutes, remove sparkplug and spray WD40 in cil. turn over once replace plug, and cover for summer then store on top of cantainer out of way so some dummy dont run into it.
