Tire sealant is incredibly useful for improving the dependability and performance of all pneumatic tires, but with so many products on the market, you may be left wondering what sort of formula is the best tire sealant for lawn mowers?
In this article, we will go over the unique needs of your lawn mower’s tires, and why different types of sealants will work better than others.
Why Lawn Mower Tires Benefit From Sealant
The tires on your lawn mower lead a tough life.
They’re constantly being exposed to direct sunlight, chemicals like fertilizer and pesticides, rough terrain, and changing temperatures.
These kinds of conditions can all contribute to wear and tear on the rubber tread and carcass of your lawn mower tires, which can weaken the seal on the rim and lead to punctures in the tread from sharp objects like thorns, nails, and debris.
Which explains why we often find ourselves coming out to tame an overgrown lawn only to find our lawn mowers sitting on a flat tire or two.
And even if we’re able to reinflate our tires, chances are we’ll be having to add air to them every weekend for the rest of the season once they start to lose their seal.
That’s why many lawn mower owners make the right choice and decide to protect their lawn mower tires with a high-quality sealant.
But what type of sealant should you be putting in your lawn mower tires? Let’s take a look at what a sealant “high quality” to begin with. But what kind of formula makes for the best tire sealant for lawn mowers?
For a lawn mower tire sealant to be truly effective, it needs to be able to protect against anything your next job might throw at it, and that means more than the occasional thorn or nail.
That’s why it’s important to consider how large of a puncture your lawn mower sealant can protect against.
Most competitor’s products are only designed to repair the smallest of punctures, and aren’t designed to work for any damage that’s over ¼” in diameter.
Stan’s Sealant, on the other hand, is designed to tackle double the average puncture size in your tire, up to a full half-inch, which means that even a full-sized landscaping spike wouldn’t be able to stop you from finishing your next lawn care project.
Another important factor to consider when deciding on the best sealant for lawn mower tires is how long your sealant will last once it’s inside your tire.
There’s really no point in applying sealant to a tire that will just be flat again a month from now.
That’s why every bottle of Stan’s Sealant is specially formulated to last up to a full two years with a single application.
That means not only will Stan’s fix an existing flat tire, but it will also go on protecting your lawn mower tires from future punctures, weather damage, and bead leaks for seasons to come.
So we need our sealant to be effective at doing its job and to last as long as possible, but another question we should ask ourselves is how much sealant do we need to buy and use to get the job done?
Many competing tire sealants on the market may cost a few dollars less, but they also require nearly twice as much sealant to go in your tire, and still won’t seal as well as Stan’s.
With our easy-flowing natural latex formula, Stan’s uses as little as 6 ounces of sealant per tire with even the largest lawn mower tires often requiring no more than 16 ounces each. Compare that to the 20 or even 30 ounces that competing brands require to seal smaller punctures, and it’s easy to see how Stan’s formula stands apart from cheaper imitations.
