The Repair Shop
Im writing to let people know that i have hired this person who i will not mention by name. He was hired last summer to fix a pressure washer that wouldn't start. The end result was him setting the equipment on fire. I felt bad for this man and did not hold him accountable for damages. He did request that I, ME purchase the replacement parts and he would put it together. To buy all the parts to fix the machine was not cost effective and was cheaper to buy a new pressure washer. Im having an issue getting this machine started and decided to give this gentleman another chance to look at the problem. I spoke with him and he said he would stop by and take care of the problem. He was a no show so i called him and in a very nasty tone i was told he did not have the time to deal with this matter and never will. I should have held him accountable at the time of the first incident but chose not to because he is an older gentleman and felt bad and was brought up to respect my elders. It could have happened to anyone. BUT his refusal to deal with the new problem im having shows the type of person this gentleman is and how he conducts his business. I hope that this review will be well accepted by consumers considering using the so called repair shop and make a better choice than I.
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.
