    I do all of my own repairs, spend enough on parts alone.

    Same here. Doing it myself keeps from having to pay the $65/hour shop rate.

    At $75 an hour around here. You figure out how to fix your own stuff. (plus I used to work at a small engine show when I was a kid. So I have a pretty good knowledge of this stuff anyways)

    Always have repaired my own equipment and saved lots of money by doing it myself.

    I try. But my lawn mower/small engine guy is really good to me so sometimes I take it to him.
