Hi Random and Geoff,
I’ve never used a ride on mower, but both of you have described similar issues. What do think is the cause? Length of running time? Getting on a tilt and having fuel delivery problems?
It surely isn’t some sort of evil spirit that inhabits ride-on mowers, is it? Has to have a logical explanation?
Ears on, waiting for discussion about this, because it’s very curious, cheers M :)
Gday one and all. Not sure if this was the thread we were talking about ride on's in , mowers that is , ahh,.
Had to push mine back from around the corner again today , damn. Never stops near the house , runs perfectly , so after that parts all finished and l'm sure l can trust him , l venture round the front stretch to finish that part. At first l stick close to this end so that if he does stop l don't have far to push it. And as get quietly more confident that l can trust him enough to start doing the far end, l get up there, and he stops. arrrgggg.
It waits for me , l'm sure of it, and as soon as l'm settled in , wham , gotcha. l think someone evil's taken over my mower.
hi Randomx, I know how you feel, ride-on mowers are great when they're working and the same happened to me several times, stopped and wouldn't go at the bottom of a hill and yes always the furtherest from the house, so I take it down the mower repair man who always says to me 'what on earth have you done this time', rather than say 'hi Geoff how are you and I'm sorry, not again', he always made me feel an inch tall, even when I took my chainsaw, whipper-snipper and lawn mowers down to him.
A most unapproachable tradesman. Geoff.
