i always always have breaks in the spring. the house has city sidewalks so the plows usually destroy some heads on that becuase its curb grass sidewalk grass..

as i said before i already found the problem it was 2 wires touching shorting it out.. replaced the timmer as thats what they wanted... i went with a hunter ppc timmer
