The Auburn University student chapter of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) is in it for the lawn haul.

The organization will host its 32nd annual lawnmower clinic on March 25 and 26.

For a fixed rate of $30, students in the Department of Biosystems Engineering will sharpen your blades, change your oil, clean or replace your spark plugs and even give your mower a bath.

“The clinic provides a nice service for the community, and the money is for a good cause,” said Jon Davis, ASABE lecturer and undergraduate program coordinator. “The student branch of ASABE raises most of its funding from the Lawnmower Clinic. This supports branch activities throughout the year, including travel for students to conferences, hosting guest speakers and service projects.”

Each year, ASABE services between 100 and 300 lawnmowers. The clinic is limited to push lawnmowers in working condition.

Lawnmower drop-off is scheduled for Friday, March 25, from noon to 5:30 p.m., and Saturday, March 26, from 7 a.m. and noon at 320 Mell Street. Pick-up is Saturday, March 26, from 1-5 p.m.
