I know I can just go online and find a shop in my area. But I would rather talk to a Lawnsite.com participant, before I take my mower into the shop. I have had good luck working with LCO's on this site, so I am hoping I can find a good mechanic in my area that is also a member: I live in the NW Houston, TX area 77070. If your a small engine mechanic, please PM me, lets talk. Thanks.
