What most everyone has said is correct. As a matter of habit, I always turn the fuel off and run the tractor until it stops when I am done using it. Whether I am done for the day, or done for the season. Now, I don't do that if I stop for lunch or am at a show, just when I am done using it.
In addition to what each of the previous posts has said, an old timer taught me that if the float sticks, it is easier to get it loose again without taking the carb apart if it is stuck OPEN vs. closed. Also, if you leave it for awhile, the fuel will evaporate out of the carb. Multiple times of that can cause varnish and other nasties to occur. No fuel in carb, no problem. Just remember when you go to start it again, to turn the fuel on, and let it set for a few mins to fill up the fuel bowl.
And yes, you will forget once in awhile to turn the fuel on, and then scratch your head for a bit why the old girl won't fire. BTDT. LOL.
