Lawn mower start guideYour old lawn mower is not running very well and you suspect it is time to either get a new one or do some repairs yourself. Inexpensive lawn mowers can be purchased for less than $200. So consumers need to be careful regarding how much money they spend repairing these machines vs. just going out and buying a brand new one. If you worried about disposing of the old one, just leave at the end of the driveway. Someone will come along and pick it up, fix it and sell it to another consumer who is looking for an inexpensive lawn mower.

When the lawn mower is free and the labor is free, these lawn mowers are sold for pure profit. The real question is why can you not repair your own lawn mower. Or better yet keep it in tip-top shape so that it continues to run for years?
