"I had a quite old
mower that was in need of a tuneup. We installed some sod in our yard and I wanted get have the mower running in top shape to keep our new" grass looking great. They were upfront and honest about what it would cost to sharpen the blade, change out the oil, clean the gasline and carbr. I decided to buy a new mower from them since there was a
rebate going on and I have been very happy with my purchase.

"I feel secure with their work but the price seemed high for repair and tune-up. We played phone tag trying to work out when the machine was completed. It all worked out in the end.

"
came - same day - to pick up my snow blower. He showed me on-the-spot what the problem was. He had to order the part, which took some time, but fixed the blower" as soon as it came. I have used his services several times for fixes and tune-ups on my mower and blower. Every time, he picked up same-day and did the job in a very short period of time - sometimes returned it next-day!
is reliable, honest, and keeps his prices low. He's great at explaining what is wrong with the equipment, and gives advice on how to maintain it. I won't use any other service! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND

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.

is a treasure. He picked up the snow blower, repaired it and returned it within a week . I can't tell you how much I appreciated the pickup and delivery as I don't have a vehicle that can haul the monster I am now ready for the snow we all know is coming.
Thanks

did a great job. He came to get the machine and returned it, fully repaired, in less than a week. Fixed the problem (clogged fuel line) and gave me a primer on how to care for it. He also recommended a gas station that sells non-oxygenated gasoline which should help prevent the problem.

One good thing about
Minneapolis Lawn Mower Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
is that he picked up our snowblower. He was able to pick it up a day or two after we called him. He told us it would take about a week, however it took about 2 1/2 weeks for him to get it done. Other than the difference in the time he told us it would take and when he did get it done, our experience was positive. We haven't been able to really test the snowblower - other than when it was test started when

dropped it off yet as there's no snow, but all looks well.

Overall, it was a great experience. They were friendly, professional, helpful and fast! Dropped it off on Tuesday and it was done by Friday. The only (very small) complaint was that they estimated it to be $50-60 and it was around $70. Otherwise, loved the experience and would use them again.

came out the day I called and picked up the machine on a Friday. By Monday he called with the issues and options of what we could do to get it running reliably. We knew we needed a new electric start already, the oil needed to be changed, the pull rope reinstalled (husband went a little overboard out of frustration trying to pull start it).

also suggested that he clean the carburetor.

He returned the machine on Wednesday morning and even I could pull start it on the first try. The starter has a two year warrenty which is also a nice bonus. We'll definitely keep

My snow blower stopped, so I took it in around 9:30 AM and got a call at 4:30 PM saying I could pick it up. They replaced the fan belt that had broken, but noticed the oil was a bit low in the crankcase which they topped up. They also noticed that a height alignment skid was missing on one side of the machine which they replaced. I took it in only because of the fan belt issue, and their other repairs undoubtedly saved me from significant future expense. There was a sincere "Thank you" on the completion.

They were great. Brought the mower over and it was ready the same day! They are about $15-20 more than other places that we called, but everyone else took 1-3 weeks to complete a tune up. The cost was $95, plus parts. They even washed the mower - cleanest it has looked in years. We'll definitely use them again.
