Question about Garden

I seem to have the same problem. I can easily pull the rope on the Cub Cadet but won't start and seems to have to compression. Is this something that I can fix on my own?

1st make sure you have spark at the plug by removing it and pulling over the motor, then drain and replace gas and install new plug if you do. The new blend of fuel is only good for a few weeks of shelf life. Ifyou plan on storing a 2 cycle motor use marine stabile in it or it will not start.

un screw recoil cover and remove be careful because if spring is broke can cause it to pop out unexpectedly and spring is sharp check rope if off track use screw driver to reinsert and should wind back if rope broken will need to replace if spring or coiler damaged also need replacement

Broken Cub Cadet


I dont own one or there but it is an easy repair. Find a wrench/socket that will fit the 3 or 4 bolts holding down the pull cord (recoil) cover and remove them and the cover. (Prob. a 10 mm socket) Then wrap a cord/narrow rope CLOCKWISE around the pulley 3-5 times and prepare mower to start as you normally would and pull the rope. Now you can cut your grass before it becomes unmanageable. Take the recoil to any small engine repair shop and have them replace the rope and then you can reinstall the recoil. In my area the charge $7-$10 for this.

Cub Cadet SRC 621, won't start. New spark plug, cleaned carburetor and air filter, Whiffs of smoke occasionally


Sounds like a sheer flywheel key. Common on the SRC 621. Kawasaki motor, correct. The flywheel key is under the recoil. Pull the flywheel and check the key. A very small key is there. Breaks and puts the engine out of time

What makes the mower hard to pull at start


Don't take my word for the hard pull start , but you probably should have a mechanic dissemble
the pull start assembly. I am only guessing it needs to be cleaned and lubricated.

I have a Yard Machine Lawn mower by MTD it has a briggs and stratton engine. The pull cord pulls, to easily I might add, but will not start the lawn mower. It doesn't seem to engage the motor. What might...


If you think the rope pulls too easily the engine may not have enough compression. Consider doing a compression test or a leak-down test on the cylinder.
