The handle snapped off my mower. Everything else works fine, but It's useless without a good way of pushing it. How do I get a new handle?

    i just called them and they are sending me a free handle because they have been braking.

    Hi Kelly,

    Do you know if either of those handle packages comes with the "C" brackets that keep the lower handle attached to the mower?

Mes now keep replacing with john deere parts, cant see any reason why, any ideas?

Maybe the drive belt is to small and pulling on the assembly, and in turn pulling enough to break the bolt. probably is fine when idle, but under load the condition changes, causing tension to be applied and snapping the bold. That would be the first place I would look.

I have also had other bolts come out of other assemblies and everything ran fine. Until one day when it didnt and belts snapped and so did bolts as and my transmission. It wasnt a good day. So check your belt alignments, mower deck bolts, spring placement, rear end bolts, etc. Good Luck!!

I have a Ryobi 6.5 push mower brand new. It worked fine for bout an 45min then ran out of gas. I put more gas in it and it has not turned on since. I've tried you have any suggestions

If your mower is that new, then take it back where you bought it from and have if fixed or ask them what you may be doing wrong to cause the issue. It's under warranty. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Poulan 550 Series push mower won't pull start

Hmmmm,,and the plot thickens. Without seeing the unit, i would have to think that when you pull the engine control cable bar, its not releasing the brake that sits against the flywheel. These cables do stretch. Pull the engine cover and you will see the brake against the flywheel. Pull the engine control handle and watch and see if brake is releasing. If its not, replace the cable.
That would be my bet. I hope this is of some help.

I need to fix athe pull string on my toro push behind mower. it has an 195cc tecumseh motor. the string broke and i can't find anything on toro about how to fix it without buying the whole assembly.

remove bolts from cover and remove the cover. Should be able to access the assembly for the pull rope. Go to a local mower repair shop buy some new line. The old line should just be knotted up on the spring loaded wheel in there. You put a new piece on put in a new knot, put some turns on the assembly to basically wing the spring so it snaps back when pulled, put line through whole and attach to pull handle.
