Lawnmower broken
« on: August 04, 2017, 07:38 »
I was mowing the grass and thought I'd caught a stone, couldn't see anything then the blades just stopped turning and haven't worked since.  Its an electric one and it still fires up so I'm hoping its fixable.  I'm thinking maybe just a connection issue?! Any words of wisdom before I take it apart? Thanks!  :)

It will be the belt broken. As long as you can get all the screws out. A reletivly easy job to do
May the fork be with you

Thank you, if it is the belt, where would the best place be for a replacement?

If you have a mower repair shop locally that's an obvious place to try; failing that there are several suppliers of mower drive belts if you search online.
Sow your seeds, plant your plants. What's the difference? A couple of weeks or more when answering possible queries!

One of the best things about being an orang-utan is the fact that you don't lose your good looks as you get older
