      This thread is dang funny. Next time just use one of those reel blade mowers. It will save the hassle of falling parts.

          You had problems mowing a yard. You should stick to the basics. You can't handle the complexities of "zip ties".

            I think they just ripped us off cause it took days to get there. But I made the mower whole again.

            I broke down and paid a little more for a Honda lawnmower Heard a guy who fixes mowers Briggs and Stratton engines ain't what they used to be. So far the Honda has been a good mower.

              There's really not much to fix on a lawn mower engine . Most common problems are spark or fuel. Spark is produced by the coil and plug. Fuel is mixed with air and sent to the combustion chamber by the Carbuerator. If it's an internal problem, it's cheaper to roll the mower to the curb and buy a new one.

              Cooter's right on this one. And im not sure if Honda actually does make their own mower engines, but 90% of pushmowers, regardless of brand are powered by a briggs and straton, so whatever solace you take knowing you bought that troy built over the walmart brand is nothing more than a placebo :lol2:

              Honda makes their own engines and beat the dogshiit out of Briggs.

                  Here is a similar one, that has an insane motor:
                  http://m.equipmenttraderonline.com/listing/2015-Scag-Stt61v35bv-Ss--118647826

                  They are so dependent on the fine details, as each one is highly customizable. Mine has the smaller 26 HP Kohler engine because it is purely residential and not commercial. I also changed my deck that is truly made for bahia grass.

                  Anyway, mine was $8200.
