I highly recommend this repair shop. They also sell new equipment. I brought my chainsaw in for repair. The primer bulb was broken and the pull start would not retract. They were highly courteous very knowledgeable and I was amazed when they called me the next day to say it was done. They explained everything they did, and even reattached the protection tip that had a missing screw. They even pointed out a safety feature my chainsaw had that I was unaware of and was not mentioned in the manual. Their price was half the price I would've paid at the small engine repair place I've used previously. I couldn't be more pleased to find this business. They service generators, mowers and all lawn equipment. They also sharpen mower blades and tools. It's a family business and everyone I met was very kind, funny, and a pleasure to deal with.

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.
