I have had that happen when my wife and kids ran over stuff...
One time it was just the blade that got bent and the other time it was the motor shaft...
Changing the blade is easy...straightening out the motor shaft is near impossible with major repair tools...
Check and see what is bent, but my thought is that something got bent which throughs everything out of balance and then the motor will not run...

How do I fix the deck to ride on mower

Find the missing nuts and bolts you left somewhere by that tree stump you ran into, or that pothole you bottomed out on, or that road you tried to mow. Put them back where they belong.

How can I take a tree down

It depends on how big the tree is and what equipment you have. If it is a small tree, you can dig up around the roots and pull it up. If it is a bigger tree, you might need some help. Anything with a trunk diameter bigger than a few inches will require heavier equipment.

I have a Husqvarna 235 that decided it didn't want to start anymore. It's only a few months since I got it. It was used the cut up a small tree that fell down in a wind storm and used again while...

Has the fuel been in it since you last used it? if so drain and re fill with fresh fuel oil, work the primer plenty of times to flush the old fuel out, crank the engine twice only with the choke out, then push it fully back in and crank again until it fires up.

How do you use roundup to kill a tree stump?

Hello, I am a grower and licensed pesticides applicator (40 yrs exp).
Roundup lost the trade mark years ago,"glyphosphate" which is now marketed (cheaper) under many other names,
Will kill a live tree if sprayed on the leaves! Also will damage young trees if you just get over spray on the trunk while spraying weeds.
Also, kills grass as well as broadleaved plants.
To kill a tree you would need to spray the leaves, then wait at least a month before cutting the tree down. I have successfully killed a few stumps by spraying the live suckers.
Be especially careful of spray drift as the finer the droplets are the more effective the chemical is. Read the label!
