Great morning all, wishing everyone a great and wonderful day. Hope everyone is doing well. Got up at 6 today to beat the 105 degree day and get yard work done. The lawn mower refused to start of course. Finally got mad at it and flung it over. After I cool off righted it and it decided to start go figure. Then pushed it forward and hadn't known someone had lowered the mower way down and it immediately pulls a sprinkler out. That caused and eruption of curse words. The lawn mower worked like crap and was hard to push especially in the hill areas so all that was full of frustration not counting all the other crap I still had to do. Been a fun day.

L.o.l..

A friend bought a new push mower.
I asked , what's wrong with your old one?
It won't start he said. (His old stuff is very seldom old. Or at least not well used).
I grabbed the handle and bounced the front wheels off the ground about four inches a few times. Pulled the starter rope and it run fine.

Crap ethanol fuel had carb float stuck probably.

You might check your blade for being bent . And out of balance.
Place we rented had a push mower another rental used too.
Blade was bent up so bad I don't know how anyone mowed with it...

The blade is worn out but not bent. Probably a carb issue or had crap stuck in the lines.

Thank you Pepper, how are you doing today?
Good John
Gardening, transplanting, and the usual stuff.
Trying to get all the little things done so the big ones are more focused on when they knock.
Went digging at a hard hit permission, found out that the blood sucking insect population is well.
Got multiple Black Flies bites, and a tick that want to eat a hole in my forearm.
My tick buddy wife pulled it out.
Hope your day is well and productive at what ever level you set the bar at.

Good RC
The Mrs commented that my tick bite looks a 🎯.
I might have to get it looked at just in case.
Days done, spinning the wheels it seems.
That is not good I hope it just looks funky and isn't Lyme disease.
