How to Troubleshoot Lawn EquipmentMost common power lawn tools work much the same. You can check the spark plug and replace it, if necessary. Also, it’s a good idea to empty out the fuel and replace it with fresh gas. Remove the air filter and replace it, as well.
Riding tractors and walk-behind mowers cut the time it takes to mow the lawn, but no matter what type you use, eventually it needs to be replaced. Deciding what to do with the old one depends on the condition it’s in and how enterprising you are. Some mowers can be sold for a little money, but you may prefer to donate it or recycle it. —Hunker.comYou should also take the time to check the carburetor. It could be clogged, so fix that. Additionally, check the fuel pump and replace it, if needed. By doing these things, the engine should start.

Dana Point Lawn Equipment Disposal OptionsSo, now that you’re faced with lawn equipment disposal, what do you do? How can you get rid of that stuff with as little hassle as possible? Well, there are some options available:
- Sell it. Even if it doesn’t work or runs rough, you can try to sell it yourself. Publish a local, online ad for it and you might find a lawn care business who will take it off your hands. Or, just a private individual who needs it.
- Donate it. If it is in working condition or just needs a little TLC, then you might also consider donating to a local charity organization. For instance, a pet shelter, church, or other organization around town.
- Consign it. Lawn equipment that still works but has reached its time for replacement might be a good fit with a local repair shop. Small engine repair and resellers are also a possibility.
- Give it away. You can also just give it away to anyone who is willing to take it off your hands. There are small machine hobbyists and others who might want it.
