Troubleshoot before TossingMost 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.
When you’re staring at a yard full of grass that desperately needed cutting two weeks ago, the last thing you want is a lawn mower engine that won’t fire up. Most of the time when a lawn mower, snow blower or any small engine won’t start the cause is a problem with the gas or the carburetor. —Family HandymanYou 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. (You can also have the mower blades sharpened if it’s been a while or if this hasn’t been done thus far.)
Grass Mower Disposal in Fort MyersIf you need grass mower disposal, it’s probably because you believe it’s simply time to move on and trade up for something new. That’s okay and reasonable. But what lawn equipment disposal options do you have? Here are a few helpful suggestions you can try out:
- Sell it. If it’s still in working condition or isn’t completely kaput, you can sell it. Contact a few local lawn care services or landscaping companies and ask if they want 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.
- Recycle it. Conduct a simple online search for lawnmower recycling or lawn equipment recycling and see what pops up. While this might be a viable option, you should know that there are usually restrictions.
- 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.
