Awesome Person and Mechanic!!I was mowing with my 6 year old zero turn Toro Timecutter Z Mower and as I was finishing up a section of the yard, the mower suddenly stopped and would not move. I got off the mower and found part of a hot and distorted pulley in the Floratam grass directly behind the mower. I had to push the mower off the grass and into the garage as it would not move when running (not that easy for a woman). I found Keith on this website and gave him a call the next morning. I sent him photos of the mower and pulley and Keith diagnosed the idler pulley as the culprit and quoted me a reasonable price to replace the pulley as well as the drive belt before he came out. I also mentioned a missing boot on our Snapper riding mower. Keith was able to come out that afternoon around 2 pm and replaced the idler pulley and the drive belt so I could finish mowing the yard later that afternoon. He also replaced the missing boot for the spark plug on our old Snapper riding mower so it now works. Keith mentioned he is also experienced in working on tractors, weedeaters and professional paint equipment. I am so thankful to find him and highly recommend him. It was such a relief not to have someone take the mower away and keep it for a week to make repairs and wonder what I was going to have to pay to fix it. He did not mind me watching him work and welcomed my questions (which I kept to a minimum to avoid being a too much of a pest). Keith now accepts credit cards but I went ahead and obtained cash based on his estimate which was what he charged me but I did add a tip which I felt he well deserved.

We highly recommend this mechanic.Kieth came to our home the next day and identified the problen in minutes.. I then asked him to sharpen the blades and replace all parts that wear out, belt, gasket, filter, etc. He took the mower and it was ready the next day. He has several commercial companie that he works with, but treated us with equal importantance. His fee was very reasonable, but he does not take credit cards. He was knowledgable and he came across as an honest man. I recommend him wholeheartedly!

Keith has done a lot of work on my lawn mower and my truck. He is extremely knowledgeable in both lawn mower repair and pretty much all auto repair. I just called him to arrange a time for him to work on my transmission on my 1998 Chevrolet C1500 W/T. It broke down suddenly and after speaking to him, I feel confident no matter what is wrong with my transmission, Keith will be able to repair it and do a wonderful job. Bobbie M. Lakeland, Florida Jan. 2015. I highly recommended you hiring him.

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.
