    My 21" blackhawk lawn mower just broke down and I'm in search for parts. I have looked in to my owner's manual and found phone numbers which have been disconnected. Can anyone tell me if this company is still in business and if so, how I might contact them for repair parts.

    Thanks!:cry:

    I appreciate your follow up but perhaps I should have been more clear on my need. The motor is working quite well, I'm needing some of the other pieces parts more specific to the "Blackhawk" product line.

    Broken handle brackets down near the deck. I've seen some close matches but they wouldn't fit quite right. The old ones appear to have been made of a "pot" metal which was clearly the weakest link in this product.

    Does your mower have a silver id tag on the deck somewhere?
    If so, what does it say? I mean everything.

    Do you know of any individual or shop that does welding/fabricating? Can't say for sure without seeing them, but it may be possible to replace the "pot" metal brackets with something made out of "real" metal.

    Keep in mind of course, you have to compare the cost of doing that against the cost of a replacement mower. Sometimes it's more expensive to fix than replace!
