Lawn Mower Repair reviews in Virginia Beach


5 days later when they finally got to my mower, they said it needed a new carburetor because they had found some fouled gas in it and it would cost $140. I found that hard to believe, since I've run the mower less than a dozen times and it has only had clean, fresh gas run through it and it has never sat for more than a few weeks. I only paid $180 for the mower, so I asked if they could rebuild the carb. He said no, it was too hard with all the ports and such. So I said to set it aside and went and picked it up.
I got on the

website and paid the $9.40 for the rebuild kit and when it came, I took the carb off and opened up the bowl. There was NO indication of fouling in there and the pin holding the float in place had worked itself loose and was sitting off to one side. So I went ahead and took everything apart and used some carb cleaner to run through the ports and there was no blockage. Put everything back together and made sure the pin was in place and put it back together. Thing started up on the first pull.
So then I recalled taking my generator to them last year and they told me the same exact thing... needs a carb, and charged me a huge bill including the time spent waiting for the part to come in.
This experience tells me that they didn't even bother to open the carb to diagnose it. If they had, they'd have found the misplaced pin, pushed it back in place, and I'd have been out the door for $35. Instead, they probably just confirmed spark, confirmed it wasn't running, and then decided to take the easy path at my expense. Yes, the new carb would definitely have gotten it running again, but so would the 2 seconds to just push the pin back in place.
I won't be going back and don't recommend you use them, unless you have a few hundred bucks you want to waste on an unnecessary carburetor.

The mower was picked up promptly Monday morning as promised. The maintenance and a small repair were done by Thursday. The mower was returned the following Saturday. The other company I have used for this in past years never returned the mower this promptly.

told me it would be at least two weeks before they could look at my lawn mower. It was ready in two and a half weeks. I thought the $100 was slightly expensive, but fair. All old parts were returned and a complete explanation was given for all work done. These folks take pains to be honest and fair. I would return to their shop with confidence.

He got here on time. I got the mower out for him. The man was very professional, and his name was

. This guy did what he had to do in record time, he was very professional and courteous, and was just perfect. He really knew what he was doing with the product, and he did a good job.

Called the shop and told them that I have a 42" mower deck and that one of the blades came off when it hit a tree root; sheered off the bolt connecting it to the mower deck. I asked if they could repair it. They said they could and that they were open until 5. About an hour later I took the mower took off my mower and took it to their shop. They immediately took a look and gave me two options to repair it. I chose to replace the part. They said they'd have it done in 30 minutes. Rather than wait I left and came back in about an hour. It was ready when I got there and an employee helped me put the mower deck (heavy) back into my SUV. I paid the man for the repair and for 2 new blades and I was out in 10 minutes.

had an issue with the tractor's deck and engine cover when I came to pick up the equipment. The owner apologized and fixed/covered everything.
Small motor repair is a tough business, these guys do as good a job as your going to find in Tidewater VA.

I have a BOLENS MTD model 11A-414A065 push mower with a

158cc 550 series engine on top. I had completed cutting the front yard and had just started the back yard. The grass was excessively high as rain had kept me from cutting for just over a week. Since the grass was so high I was using a grass catcher vice attempting to mulch the grass. I was pushing over level ground when the engine stopped.
After letting the engine set for a brief period of time I was able to get it started for upwards of one minute, but then it died again. I had white smoke coming out of the muffler so I changed the oil, but no change in symptoms. I'd gone through the mower's and engine's manufacturers web sites for technical assistance with no definitive guidance. I'd gone through the owner's operating manual with no definitive guidance. Actions taken to this point since this problem arose were:
- Verified gas tank is full of fresh gas - Ensured gas tank is clean - Verified air vents in gas tank cap are clear - Cleaned foam air filter - Verified primer works - Verified carburetor is clean - Changed the oil in accordance with the operator's manual - Carburetor hasn't been adjusted - Spark plug contact is free of corrosion and has a firm connection - Checked for scope of movement of the dead man handle, and that - It's reliably engaged when the handle is gripped. It checks out.
After checking Angie's List I took the lawn mower to

. They were up-front about pricing (including initial deposit), work options, and estimated time-frame for proposed troubleshooting. They followed up when they identified the problem, providing me with an (accurate) estimate of the parts and labor. They were courteous and polite.

Phone conversation with the owner was very pleasant. The owner was apologetic regarding not being able to provide this service and referred me to another mover repair shop.
