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, and plonk your potatoes in the soil.

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.
