Keep your riding mower or walk behind mower running strong all season long.
Like anything with hundreds of moving parts, a lawn mower may require attention now and then. It may be gas related engine starting problems or lawn cutting issues due to natural wear and tear.
While we recommend you trust your local authorized dealer for lawn mower repair and maintenance, sometimes it's a simple fix (or one that requires immediate attention). You may not have a storeroom filled with lawn mower parts, but chances are you have a few essential tools and a good deal of self assurance.
Before we go into some of the common repairs you can do yourself:
- Read your entire operator's manual to understand your machine and the safety warnings. Many of the procedures explained in this article require and understanding of basic procedures that vary between lawn mower models.
- Never attempt a repair while the blades are running or the transmission is engaged.
- Refer the repair to an expert if you find yourself unsure of how to proceed.
