"We wanted someone who would come and service our power tools...lawn mower, power washer, blower, etc. at our home. It is such a hassle to load everything in a car and haul it off and" then not have it for two weeks. Vinny came to our home within 48 hours of our call and serviced our items in our garage. He was prompt, clean and tidy and the cost was well work the price compared to having to load items in the back of one of our cars and take it to a service shop,

"I was having difficulty starting my lawn mower and called around to various repair shops to get a quote as to what they would charge for a tune up. The prices ranged from $135.00 to" close to $200.00, with the quickest turn-around time 2 weeks. I checked Angie's List and called
. I explained the problem I was having and the model of the mower. He said he could fix it for $50.00. I asked how long it would take to get the mower back. He asked when I could get it to him. I told him immediately and he said he could fix it and have it ready by the next day. I delivered it to him that afternoon.
called me after I dropped the mower off and informed me that one of the front wheels on the self propelled mower was broken. He said he could fix it for me and would only charge me the price of the wheel. I picked the mower up a couple of days later and have nothing but accolades for the job
did. In addition to fixing the starting problem he also fixed the front wheel, sharpened the mower blade and cleaned it up to look like new. The total price he charged me was less than $70.00. The mower runs like new and you can bet that any future problems I have with my lawn mower or other small mechanical tool I will definitely call
for a quote. He was polite, professional and prompt. I would definitely use his services again.

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.

I was able to schedule service within a few days of my call. He arrived on time and was very professional, courteous, and friendly. The service was done in less than an hour. I would definitely recommend this service to anyone who doesn't want to haul their mower in to an off-site location for service. It may cost a little more, but it is worth it for the convenience.

The only negative about the whole experience is that the new pull cord is shorter than the original, but it works fine so no problem. All in all, I got exactly what I wanted from a very professional and friendly person.

I have called around the city looking for a business that repaired corded electric Snapper lawn mowers. This was the first business that would recommend another company.

It took them about an hour from the time I brought the saw in until they were done. Fantastic job. Previously, they assisted me in getting the saw started (my poor technique) and did not charge me since they said there was nothing wrong with the saw. Great folks to work with.

It went poorly from the start. There was a lot of miscommunication about the starting problem. They told me that the battery was completely dead and I would need a new one even though mine was only a few months old. I agreed and they told me they had installed and charged me for a new battery. Turns out it was a ground connection problem and the battery was fine. They charged me for the grounding problem and the labor. They put a new blade (dull) on with their torque machine and I couldn't get it off to sharpen it. When I called they said I wouldn't be able to remove it by hand safely. The blade was new but completely dull. They told me that this was standard procedure because sharp blades were too dangerous. So I mowed all season with a dull blade that I couldn't remove to sharpen or replace. They supposedly replaced the carburetor on the chipper shredder but it only lasted half the season before it wouldn't start again. I would never have them do any work again for me.

- these guys are FABULOUS - we can't say enough good things about them. Service was excellent and FAST. We took the lawn mower in and had it back in about two days - perfect. It looked like new and ran like new. We had been told by the Honda dealer last year that it may need a new carburetor and other various repairs. We were thinking of just buying a new one, but a different brand. I looked on Angie's List and found

. We took it to

and they gave us an estimate of, I think it was between $68 and $86, but said it would probably be below $86, which it was. They believe in customer service like you used to get and which virtually doesn't exist in this world with many companies. I highly, highly recommend them and would use them again in a heartbeat. I will check to see what other services they may offer, hopefully for garden tool sharpening. You can't beat

cheerfully answered the phone and then gave us a very reliable estimate of the work they would do, including the price and length of time required. The work was done promptly and exactly as specified. They extended the warranty of their work until after we use the mower in the spring. The shop is very consumer and service oriented. We will definitely use
