Lawnmower advice........

Hubby took the walk behind mower to the dealership and told him that Toro needs to get their s*** together. Dealer said he would fix it and maybe even do some metal work so that a guard can be placed around the choke lever to protect it from being bumped. Turns out, dealership has done a number of repairs to other mowers like ours.

We have a Simplicity riding mower that is good (so far). The Simplicity's predecessor was also a Simplicity and we had that one for 16 years with two minor repairs my husband did himself.

Sounds like the dealer gives good customer service.. Cool

Indeed he does. It is a locally owned, not big box store and folks have bought mowers from that dealership for years and years. I got the impression he was not happy to have to be repairing yet ANOTHER 'Toro' mower. Oh-jeez

I can't tell you how many times I have run that mower up against the Brazilian pepper trees and it has knocked the choke lever or going the other way, idling down the throttle. With the blade running, it stalls the motor. Impossible to get going again. Pull cord... So I have to take off the spark plug and let it air out for 15 minutes. Sometimes the break is welcome but most of the time I just want to get the darn lawn done.

Are there any decent battery powered mowers? One where I don't have to buy 2 batteries to get 1/2 acre done? They don't have to be self-propelled.


Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie
