    It’s either a bit clogged with grass in the chute, or it needs a refill of gas.

    with today’s “cleaner emissions” gasoline, if the fuel has sat in the tank longer than 30 days, you can bet the fuel system needs cleaning…

    I know this too well also…I mean it is almost to the point that you should toss your old mower at the end of the mowing season instead of letting it sit through Winter…and get a new one every year…

    If it doesn’t start by the second pull that means I get the day off!!!

    Use good gas and oil. Change the oil, plug, and filter.Pay more for a mower with a good engine.Mine has started on the second pull for 15 years.

    I buy non-alcoholic gas. Costs a bit more but worth it.

    My last old mower would never finish the entire yard without some kind of breakdown. Smoked like a freight train too!

    I have an electric that works great. You have to have one of those really long, orange extension cords to attach to it. I never had a problem with keeping it out of the way, but my husband ran over the cord once. I wouldn’t get a gas mower. I don’t need the aggravation if it didn’t start right off. Getting to old to be doing that and pull a muscle in the process.

    I work in a small engine repair shop and go to school for it. I am a certified outdoor equipment repair technician. I know more about this than I care to. I think I will sit this one out.
