"What a terrible experience. For the third consecutive time, I ordered an appliance from
(this time it was a Dishwasher), was promised a delivery date and then" got an automated call telling me that my delivery date was going to be delayed due to a "Manufacturer Delay". This time the delay was from December 11th this week to December 29th. The first time this happened with a Range Hood, it caused my contractor to have to come back to finish our kitchen renovation, causing us to have to live with an unfinished kitchen for three weeks. The second time, it happened within 24 hours of the promised delivery date, causing me to have to cancel the plumber and incur a $180 cancellation charge.
was neither apologetic, nor willing to compensate me. All they did was offer about $30 worth of "points", which expired in 30 days. I have learned my lesson. I cancelled my order with them and will never, ever in a million years give them my business again.
is a terribly run company that has sleazy policies that are deliberately contemptuous of the customer. Avoid at all costs.

"I was having problems with my snapper lawnmower. I called Bill, and was told to bring the lawnmower down to him. After having the lawnmower for several days, I receive a call from" Bill asking if I could being him the manual. At that point I should have know I was in trouble. To make a long story short, I was charged $80 for Bill to do absolutely nothing to the lawnmower. His exact quote to me was that the lawnmower was shot and not worth the $1000 he would have to charge me to fix it. Anyways I bring the lawnmower to another provider, and they changed my oil, blades, and fix the small engine problem for $120. The mower is running as good as new, and they told me it should easily last another ten years. What it comes down to is Bill has absolutly no idea what he is doing, you don't have to trust my review, make your own judgement call if you bring your equipment to his house. You'll understand why he wants cash up front. Do not waste your time going here!!!! Horrible.

history of the lawn mower

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.

repair shop. Maybe certified?. Experience with them was most satisfactory. They picked and later delivered the tractor from my house. Punctually and with good advance communications. Fee was reasonable.
I had maintenance and repairs to be done: failed hydraulic hose, brakes out of adjustment, mower deck in need of attention. They gave the tractor a very thorough check-up, and found a few things that needed further attention that would have reduced the life of the machine, They also did minor fixes on half a dozen things:

out of adjustment, bent sheet metal, etc. Overall, they exhibited a level of professionalism in their attention to truly caring for my tractor that was higher than the norm. The cost of the service was substantial, but I believe it was fair and a good value. I expect to use them in the future.

showed up on time and fixed the snow blower and changed the oil for our lawn mower. Unfortunately, that same night, the fuel was leaking out of the carburetor. We called

and he came back the next day and added a fuel line with a valve to stop the leak. This versus buying a new carburetor and no leaks, and works like a charm! Thanks

I left a message to get an estimate and
Salford Lawn Mower Repair Shops Provider Name Locked
(the owner/operator) called back within a day. We set a time for him to come and pick it up and he arrived as expected. He gave me an estimate of when it would be done and it took longer than that but I wasn't in a big rush so that wasn't an issue. The only thing I would have liked is if I'd gotten a call to let me know it was going to take longer than expected. We set a time for him to drop it off and he arrived as expected. The chute handle ended up being more work than I think he expected but he charged what he estimated even though it took much longer than he expected. When he dropped it off, he had it started so I knew it was working. He only charged $20 for the pick up and drop off and another $45 for the work so I was very pleased with the work and bill. Will use

again for any small engine repair/maintenance I need.
