Kiwi Lawnmower & Chainsaw Repair
My Cub Cadet mower had one cylinder not firing, I had called several mower repair shops and looked online for customer ratings. I found that most of the local shops had more negative than positive ratings and reviews. Those that I did call said it would be several weeks before they could check out my mower. Then I remembered that last year I had stopped in briefly as I passed that way and talked with the folks at Kiwi Lawn Mower & Chainsaw Repair on Reynolds Ave in Centralia . I recalled that the shop was small but appeared to be well organized, the folks were friendly. So I went online to check the reviews. There were no negative reviews which I thought was a good thing, there were no reviews at all, but because I had met the owners before briefly I had a good feeling about taking the mower to them. When I arrived at the shop a technician came out to help unload the mower from the truck, their hydraulic lift made it easy. I was told it would be a few days before they could checkout the mower, in less than a week I received a call telling me that the problem was a bent push rod and the part was on order, in a little over a week the mower was ready for pick up. The price was surprisingly very reasonable and fair, they did good work, the mower runs like new. I couldn't be more pleased, and would highly recommend this shop! G. Redden

Tips & Advices
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.
Lawn mower blades should be sharpened every one to two 1 to 2 months, or around twice each season.
