This has been a terrible spring for my lawn equipment! I got the lawn mower out of the shed, after a few pulls, it started right up. I did the back yard with no problem. I move to the front yard…1 length of the yard and it dies…wtf!! I can start it, but it immediately stalls…there is no way to get the yard cut like this!! With all this frustration, I reach out to my friend who says, bring it over, I’ll have the hubby take a look at it.
I throw it in the car and head out…Chuck takes a look at it, ties back the safety, wiggles some magic cable and poof…it’s all good! Back into the car (after a couple lifesaving beers) I head back home, pull it out of the car, starts up just fine, one square around the yard…stalls again…I hate lawn equipment! At this point, I am thinking about hiring a lawn service and not fixing or replacing anything.
Chuck diagnoses, bad carburetor…if I can get a replacement part, it may cost me almost as much as a new mower!! Did I mention, I hate lawn equipment??
