    What can you do to keep the power on 21" mowers the same as when they are new? Honda micro cuts

    - clean air filter
    - keep oil clean
    - change spark plugs yearly or when carboned up or fouled out.
    - check coil and spark plug wire for wear(resistance)
    - sharp blade...yes a dull blade makes the power seem much less
    - check fuel tank and carb for visable dirt
