Lawn Equipment TroubleshootingMost 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.)
Used Yard Equipment Junking in Punta GordaIf you need lawn equipment 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 used yard equipment junking suggestions you can try out:
- Fix it. Instead of spending a bunch of money on new equipment, go the cheap route. Do some easy maintenance to get more life out of it. Check the filters, change the oil and fuel. Give it some TLC and squeeze more work out of it.
- Sell it Another solution that can be somewhat worthwhile is to sell it. Publish a local online ad and sell it as a bundle. You might find a lawn care service who will take it off your hands and give you a little money for it.
- Give it away. If it is in good, usable condition, a local charity or school might want it. If you find success with this option, be sure to get a receipt to use as a small tax write-off.
- Junk it. Of course, if it’s just at the end of its life and you don’t want to go through the hassle of disposing of it, you can call in a junk removal service to take care of it.
