I didn't want to mow the lawn yesterday anyway...

5 days ago, my lawnmower broke, so I took it to be repaired. Yesterday morning, I got a call saying my mower was fixed, so I went to pick it up. And I brought it home. And I unloaded it. And it wouldn't start. The pull rope would come out about a foot and that was it. So I loaded it back up and took it back to the place. Whomever 'fixed' it decided the pull-cord was too long so they cut a few feet off of it before putting it back on. And yesterday afternoon, I got a call saying it is fixed now. So I'll go pick it up again today and see if they got it right this time...

The cord is supposed to go up the handle where you can reach it while holding it from the pushing position...they set it up like the old mowers with the pull handle coming right out of the engine. So they had about 3 feet of 'extra' cord which they cut off...

I hope you don't get it back with the pull rope being even shorter . My dad was a gardener by occupation . . . he had a back up mower, but he would take hours/days to fix a broken mower on his own if he had to. Something for him to do in his man cave .
