Lawn Mower Repair: 3 Potential Problems And How To Solve Them

Got mower problems? Has your lawn mower decided to not start for you? Has it stopped on you in the middle of your yard? Regular lawn mower maintenance can usually prevent these types of problems from happening, while also extending the life of your equipment. However, even with that TLC, general wear and tear can lead to a problem occurring at some point in time. So, when that happens, you need to know what to do. Here are a few problems that you may face and what to do:

You should become concerned when the smoke is a light color and also have trouble with the mower operating.
