"I purchased this deal because I needed my lawnmower serviced as quickly as possible.
was able to complete the work within 1-2 days. Very friendly, helpful" staff. The first time I mowed my lawn after I got it back, it worked fine. The 2nd time, it wasn't working right - there was smoke coming from the engine and not enough power even though it started it ok. Then it died shortly after starting to mow the lawn. I took it back to
and they determined that they had put too much oil in the mower. They fixed it and apologized for their mistake. I give them high ratings because I liked them and even though they made a mistake, they owned up to it. I would have appreciated if they had given me even a partial refund since I had to make a second trip out there (17 miles). So it was a good price until I had to make a 2nd trip. I would hire them again though, if I lived closer.

"
answered the phone when I called which is especially nice in that you don't have to wait to see if the provider is even going to bother to call you back." He was able to come the next day for the service which was also a big plus. The lawn mower is a very old Honda which since I bought it three years ago on Ebay has not been reliable. I brought it last August to a dealer and repair service company and they kept for about a month and then said there was nothing wrong with it for $175.
was able to see what the problem was and gave me suggestions to avoid future problems.
was professional and knows what he is doing.

"
offers pick-up and delivery for an additional $35 for where I live. I paid the extra $35 because I can no longer pick up my mower. I was very happy they offered" this service because I didn't know how I was going to get my mower tuned up and ready for a new year of mowing. They arrived when they said they would and called me to arrange delivery a few days later when the mower was ready. I had a family emergency hours before delivery so called them and they were very gracious and understanding of my cancellation. I rescheduled later and they delivered when they said they would. Very personable. My mower works great. Very pleased and will probably call them again next year.

Lawn mower repair

The average suburban lawn mower is a true workhorse, but you might not be maintaining it as well as you should. Here are some practical tips on troubleshooting common problems, how to make some lawn mower repairs yourself and how to maintain your mower so it keeps performing well year after year.

Experts in lawn mower maintenance say there’s a fix for common issues, but major problems often cost more to repair than buying a new lawn mower.

The only time a carburator needs replacing is if you put some really corrosive cleaner in it that ate through the metal (usually aluminum), or if you have physically broken it.

Otherwise, carbs can be rebuilt - rebuild kits (that contain basically all the non-metallic parts, the primer bulb (usually) and carb gaskets) typically run $10-25. A tuneup (carb rebuild and new spark plug) with parts typically runs about $60-80 ($100-150 for rider mowers), although a lot of repair shops have $45-60 spring specials. Probably needs a sharpening too - another $10-15 or so when done as part of a tune-up.

By hiring someone to do it, I presume you mean taking it to a small engine repair shop with a good word of mouth reputation, and being sure to get a dropoff receipt and estimate in writing that you carry away with you.

If it runs at all, or ran last fall, this is probably all you need.

Compare this to the cost of a new mower - for a rider mower, no comparison of course - go with the carb cleaning and rebuild. However, for a standard 20-22 inch push power mower, replacement cost is about $140-250, depending on whether you go with a Walmart special or brand name, additional $100 or so if self-propelled or bagging type.

For a 10 year old push type power mower, if it sits outside all winter or is pretty rusty, since you are not mechanically inclined I would recommend getting a new mower - something like a Sears or Murray Ohio (at Target, WalMart, etc) plain-jane mower for about $150-180 unless you have steep hills or medical issues, then get the self-propelled model. A 20 inch or even 18 inch will do fine for a small lawn; if you have several lawns or a pretty big lawn area (over say 2500 SF) then you probably want a 22 inch - the extra path width makes quite a difference in how long it takes to mow.

If it sleeps in a shed or garage and is not rusting out, I would recommend a new one if the plain jane will do it for you, otherwise if the replacement one that you would buy is over about $250 I would go with the carb overhaul and tuneup.

I would STRONGLY recommend you get a 4 cycle engine - I swear by Briggs and Stratton rather than Tecumseh or other brands. 4 cycles start much easier and are less sensitive to fuel/air mix issues, and the plugs stay clean a lot longer. 2 cycles are lighter for the same horsepower which is why you see them a lot in outboard motors that are less than about 50-80 HP and in small generators and motorcycles, but they are a lot more tempermental about starting, especially in cold weather or after a long storage.

If you pay attention to proper winter storage procedure, rebuilding the carb on the old one should last you another 5+ years. I have a Murray Ohio with 4 cycle Briggs and Stratton engine that is 33 years old, lives in an unheated shed in a northern state, and has had nothing more than annual blade sharpening, oil change every few years, and one carb overhaul and plug cleaning (and ZERO new spark plugs) in its life, and starts by second pull every spring. The key is if you store it inside in a garage to run it dry each fall (so you do not have gas in the garage, for safety reasons in case it leaks out); if you leave it outside I fill the tank to the top so moisture cannot acccumulate from moist air "breathing" in and out of the tank due to temperature changes. I do this with mower, chain saw, leaf blower, weed wacker - all start on first or second pull in the spring (and throughout the summer). If you live in an area with a lot of moisture in the winter air (ours is very dry) you might have to add Heet or Sta-Bil to the fuel can (per instructions) before topping off tank.

You will find other people who say you HAVE to run it dry each season. Their theory is that if there is no gas in it then there is no gas to collect moisture or to evaporate and turn to varnish over the winter (though that generally takes a few years of sitting to happen). My theory is if it is filled with fuel it cannot dry out and leave varnish residue to block the fuel tube screen and fuel jets, plus it does not rust metal fuel tanks by being empty. To each their own procedure.

?

No personal experience on rider mowers but some with small rider tractors, but since you have gotten no response in 5 days, here is my 2 cents worth:

 

1) read the Consumer Reports and JD Powers reviews on rider mowers

 

2) from what neighbors have told me, TroyBilt are maintenance problem and not built very rugged, Sears tend to have transmission/drive train problems, those with John Deere say they were unhappy with the price but they run well and don't have extreme maintenance costs - so sounds to me like JD is best brand out there right now.

 

3) A recommendation also from personal small engine experience and neighbors - stay with Briggs and Stratton 4 cycle engines if possible, and stay away from 2 cycle engines - they are lighter and cheaper, but have a LOT more starting problems and tend to not last as long.

was on-time and completed the work quickly! I choose to use his services over others of similar price becuase he makes house calls and I didn't have to worry about hauling my mower around town. This feature brought me to him, his service, friendliness, and well-performed work will make me a repeat customer! Thanks,

The staff of
Columbus Lawn Mower Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
were very friendly, knowledgeable, amazingly punctual, and accommodating. They picked up my lawnmower 6 days after I purchased a Big Deal and delivered it back to me two days later. It was making a loud noise that they quickly determined was a bent blade. I had a different company try to fix it the year before, and they did not fix it all. I am very impressed and satisfied with J.LW Mower, and I will use them in the future.

was great, highly recommend him. He makes house calls so you don't have to take your mower to a repair shop and not know what they're doing. He knew exactly what was wrong with my mower and it runs great. Took about 25 mins.
