    I've never had to. Hell I don't even run the gas out between winter and spring and it roars backs to life on the 1st pull.

      Note to self: Always check the air filter cover to make sure it is tight before mowing.

      Also, how could you run over something that big and not see it on the grass? You are an accident waiting to happen!

      I thought about getting a lawn guy. But I like mowing my lawn. Takes me an hour to weed eat, edge, and mow it. I don't like doing the back lawn so much as it has a small hill. My front and side lawn takes about half an hour and the back lawn about another half hour.

      I like to do it myself... takes about an hour and a half, sometimes that's including weed eating sometimes not. This past Sunday was mowing didn't see a big a$$ wasp nest in one of my palms...they got me good a few times.

        You obviously don't live in Florida. It's hell in the summer. Seriously, it's like torture. You mentioned something about the "season" where you are. There is no season here, you mow like a bastard year round.

        I used to mow lawns here and there in the summer for some extra cash as a teenager in Gainesville. By the end, you were sure you were going to die.

          I couldn't live without my lawn guy. We fired the Mexicans a while back and I hired my Redneck buddy. Besides cutting he grass and trimming the hedges he also does a lot of tree work for me as well as rid our lawn of any harmful critters such as wasp, fire ants, squirrels and snakes. Here he is with a Water Moccasin he killed for me on our seawall.....I pay him $25.00 per snake so he has to send me pictures as proof...He doesn't charge me for the squirrels because he eats them....

            I live in Tampa! I have about 2 months of no mowing. Sure it's hot! Camping with the boy scouts for 10 days is a hundred times worse. I just did that this June. The heat index was 105 the entire time.

            Turf grass is one of the worst plants ever developed by man. It grows way too fast, needs watering, weeding, and fertilizer to look good. My lawn has been taken over by weeds and crab grass because I refuse to spray anything on it. Plus one of my dogs pees in the same spot all the time and it's perpetually brown. I've put sod down on the spot, but she keeps peeing on it and killing the sod. I wish I could rip up my lawn and replace it with a no mow or low mow turf grass.

            You have two months of not mowing in Tampa? I sure as hell don't.

              Yep, pretty much. Maybe once in all of January and February. This month, winter was pushed back a little bit so my not mowing months were from the end of January until the middle of March.

              Must be a Vero thing.

              I usually do my final mow in early November (don't mow 2-3 weeks before Halloween for effect), then pick it back up in March/April depending on when the weather picks up.

              Yea sorry, a carburetor is a carburetor, doesn't matter what name is stamped on the side of it. Keep running old ethanol gas in it without cleaning or draining it and you'll be eating your words...
