Didn’t Steven King write about that mower?
It always starts… on the 37th pull.
I switched to electric and put my 35 yo ICE mower out front with a sign “Free to a Good Home.” I didn’t run anymore, but was gone in less then 3 minutes.
I bet he didn’t mention the overheating problem…
Looks like a cat.
I once had a lawnmower from hell. The exhaust port was facing toward me so I was inhaling fumes the whole time. I eventually ran it over a small tree stump and bent the blade axle. I was glad to be rid of it.
