    I have a 2021 Walker s-18 that shut down while mowing about 4 days ago and would not start. It was not making any noises and did not sputter or anything. The mower started working a few minutes later, after pushing it a few feet. Today it stopped again while mowing and will not start. Its making...

    Mower: 2008 Exmark Lazer Z 60 in. 27 hp model: LZ27KC604 Yesterday I noticed my left rear wheel wobbling a little (or at least it was not exactly straight) on my Exmark Lazer Z. I have noticed this before earlier this year, possibly last year as well, but when jacking it up and checking...

    Hey Fellas, Just moved over to California from Texas and saw they don't really have a LI license like they do in Texas. I got a job in a different industry and was looking at knocking out some irrigation repairs over the weekend or my days off. Do I need any type of license if my repairs are...

    Anyone out there use a sprinter van (or similiar) for a irrigation service vehicle? I've been working out of a Tundra for 8 years and it's time to replace. Was thinking a van would be easier to organize (and keep that way), but wanted to see what others experience with them are. Do not do...

    Hey All, First post of many here. I recently bought a used (1900 hour) Exmark Lazer 26 Hp Ef Model: LZ26KC60. The first 10-15 hours or so of cutting everything has been fine and its ran great. During my last time cutting, not sure if it was due to a bump I hit but ever since I hear like a...

    I just got my licensed in January of 2019 and was mainly doing mowing and landscape work. I didn't do any advertising for sprinkler repair work this year but began receiving more calls about June. Im so used to the mowing season and when it gets busy, I have no clue when to advertise for...

    Had 120 hours of my time in a $4900 install. It was my first but honestly, I couldn’t see my self cutting it down to fewer than 60 hours after I get faster. My cost for labor, materials and other expenses were about $3500. Even if it took 60 hours $1400 isn’t good at all. Doing repairs I...

    Hi. I have a self propelled lawn boy model 10545 and i just replaced the primer bulb on it. It runs great until you get on a hill or even the slightesr incline and stalls out instantly. If you leave it on level ground itll run forever. Whats going on? I dont wanna lose this mower lol. Thanks in...

    So I’m having an issue with this free mower. The engine runs very high rpms at full throttle. Originally it ran okay, it was kinda rough running and so I cleaned the carb and that’s when I realized it was running very high rpm’s. Anyways I messed with it a little and it’s just been sitting for a...

    I have a bobcat ransomes xm4810 with the variable speed pulley and I heard from other threads that these things can cease up and only work in one speed. On the one I have, there is just very little speed adjustment and I was able to get it functioning properly with the full range of speeds after...

    So I decided to get a Cub Cadet 33" walk behind mower, just due to the fact that my push mowing last year about wore me out! I have several customers that have decent sized back yards that are too small for a rider/zero turn to fit in and just enough room for a 33" walk behind to fit through the...

    I have a pb-580t blower and I looked in the operators manual and it said.. Move the plug in "C" position in cold weather. And it says in hot weather is. Move plug in "D" position in normal weather. What temperature does it need to be in the outdoors. It's 74'F here now and it's supposed to be...

    Hi, I have an Echo PB-1000 which has a split primer bulb. I am wondering in people's experience can I just replace the bulb or is there anything else I should replace while replacing the bulb? Cheers in advance. Anthony

    I bought a Winston Pro 48" walk behind today. 2010 model. I realized that the breaks have little power. I went down a hill and squeezed on the breaks as hard as I could but I still wouldn't stop. Just to stop on flat ground or turn I need to squeeze hard on the breaks. What do I need to...

    I recently purchased a frontier overseeder on auction. It is a model OS1058. The machine appears to have little wear but to the left outside. I will attach an image but I am having issues with the "distributor bar" if you will. It seems to be extremely stiff. I have already pulled the chains...

I have a 27cc Craftsman trimmer for the house and this thing has been working good for me for awhile and then all of sudden this **** happens like magic... The trimmer had originally not started at all due to a...

    I received a call from a local repair shop that had my Husqvarna 128LD string trimmer. He said that he had to replace the carburetor, fuel lines, plug and fuel filter. I gave the required $20 deposit, and he said that the bill I owed was $138 totaling $158. Is this a normal charge? I thought it...
