Bearings rattling when hit a lump, carb worn out, smoking like crazy, using oil …. Saves changing it. … loads of things really. It broke a whole load of carb linkage …. Well I did when I shoved it under a tree .. just last straw.Sounds familiar...
Sod the engine. I just can't get beyond thinking of a woman going agricultural.
I am being sorely tempted to say something, but I need to be good.lol. Born and bred on a farm. Driving tractors by 4 a combine by 8. Contract baling at 12 …….
good ole Country Girl me.
unfortunately you're right, have this discussion pretty regularly with customers. You might be better trying to pick up an older one needing work for not a lot, then make one good one out of the two. I do it quite often, the benefit of keeping the scrap, can usually canibalise and frankenstein one together. There's not a lot to them, most parts are fairly similar / same and there's always someone looking for a cheap mower / tractor..Id be very surprised if buying a nice new chinese made mower doesnt almost work out cheaper by the time you buy all the bits. Quite sad really, but reality.
That was pretty much the conversation I had with a local garden machinery dealer, when I took my old chainsaw in to price up some parts.Id be very surprised if buying a nice new chinese made mower doesnt almost work out cheaper by the time you buy all the bits. Quite sad really, but reality.
Briggsbits. It’s probably cheaper somewhere, but they were brilliant on the phone, are going to convert it from OPC to standard throttle before they send it.
