JR Small Engine Repair
Said my push mower was shot. A man who worked there sold me his mower. We paid cash and assuming he works there we purchased a decent mower. Nope! Dude didnt even change oil it blew on my first pull. And of course he refused to give me my money back. All this in one day. Its been few years but do not go alone if youre a girl they rip you off!!!!! This was 2014 and ive ran into few unhappy customers who happen to be female. Hmmm

JR Small Engine Repair
Reasonably priced repair. Turn around is usually less than two weeks unless parts have to be ordered. Have been taking lawn equipment to JE's for last 5 yrs. They have serviced and repaired our lawn tractor, push mower, snow blower, edger, cultivator, tiller, leaf blower. They have been able to repair some of these when another place only wanted to sell you a new one saying the former was not repairable. JR's had been in business for many years and has a following. Don't know why I ever went any place else! They are honest, efficient, and enexpensive compared to other shops. They also pick-up and deliver large equipment for a reasonable fee. Have recommended JR's to my friends and they also have praised their service. If JR's can't fix it, NO ONE CAN!!
Tips & Advices
For gas-powered lawnmowers, the primary reasons for a failure to start are lack of gas, water in the fuel system, broken or faulty spark plug, and engine seizure. For electric mowers, check to make sure the mower is plugged in and that the cord itself is not damaged.
When a lawn mower issue arises, it generally results in the either the mower’s inability to start or its inability to cut properly. The most common causes of these issues include:
  • Clogged air filter
  • Flooded engine
  • Dead spark plug
  • Overfilling of oil
  • Dull cutting blade
  • A dirty undercarriage
  • Gasoline or oil that is too old and has gone stale
  • Overheated engine
Reel mowers are those without engines that use a series of vertically spinning blades to slice the grass, much like a pair of scissors would. These mowers are typically smaller and are pushed manually by an operator. But larger reel mowers can be towed behind tractors or multipurpose vehicles, which is how most golf course lawns are maintained. These mowers make shallow cuts and disperse the clippings broadly back over the lawn. This is known as grasscycling. a form of self-fertilizing, and is generally considered to be good for the grass’ health and longevity. Rotary mowers generally have a single blade that spins horizontally and is powered by a small gas or electric engine. These mowers can be adjusted to cut thick or shallow grass and disperse the clippings neatly to one side, greatly easing the process of clean up. Rotary mowers can be pushed manually, ridden by a driver, or towed behind tractors and multipurpose vehicles.
  • Clean blades and the undercarriage of clippings and dirt at least once per year to prevent rusting
  • Change oil, air filter, and spark plug once every one to two  years
  • If the mower is being stored for a long period of time, such as during the winter, drain the remaining gas and oil
Lawn mower spark plugs should be changed every one to two  years.
