A New, New Mower
July 29, 2016 5:16pm CST
I somehow deleted my post. I did indeed repeat myself in the title. We have had totally bad luck with mowers since moving. We got tired of trying to deal with used ones, and bought a new one at Wal Mart. We used the new mower perhaps twice, or three times. It quit starting. Hubby looked at the filter, and it was full of oil. He tried putting a new air filter on, it still did not start. Today hubby took the mower back to Wal Mart, who immediately gave him a new one, no receipt on hand and no questions asked.

I have in the past. I am hard on mowers I think. i have a large uneven yard and this one has high rear wheels. Often you find the same mowers at places like Home Depot, but they cost more. I had just as soon get one at Wal mart.

We went thru this a couple of years ago. My husband brought home a new rider and he thought it odd that there was gasoline in the tank already-legally they cannot be sold like that unless they are sold "as is" which isn't new, but he bought new. After he cut the grass once it refused to start. And it was difficult because we have an SUV, but this wouldn't fit in it, and we don't have a trailer to haul in behind, so he asked the neighbour if he'd take it back in his truck, which he did. He took his money back and we found another one, at another store and had it delivered. Its worked great ever since!
