Question about Garden

1 Answer

I recently inherited a 12 year old riding lawn mower. I believe it was sold through Home Hardware in Canada. It is marked as a "Landmark 12/38" mower. It seems to be in excellent condition with not too many hours on the engine. I would like to maintain the mower as well as possible but I can not locate a manual for it either on line or in hard copy. Do you know where I can obtain a copy of a manual to find out how to maintain this machine? - Tom Francis, Burlington Ontario

Looking for manual for old Landmark (MTD thru Home Hardware) Lawn Tractor (12HP-38") ~ 1993 or so. Model # 133H450F503

Hello -

Normally, you could go through MTD for something like this, but it appears that it's not available from them anymore.

However, I found a tractor site that has some owners of your particular machine. They may be able to help you out.

Where can I purchase replacement blades?

Hi Jim, you can buy replacement blades for your riding mower at most hardware, or lawn and garden store. I believe Sears home and garden has them also. They are the same as a regular push mower blade, but smaller because you have 2-3 blades. I'll put a link to help you out. All you really need is the model of your mower, and blade length.

Trouble starting my old Toro mower

This is a 20 year old mower. Has it been used on a regular basis over recent years? Try spraying some carburetor cleaner down the carb throat to see if it fires up. If it's been sitting for awhile, the carb may need to be cleaned out.
