Is your lawn mower in need of a specialty riding lawn mower repair and service shop near Charleston WV?

We are your local lawn mower repair experts and can help with all brands of riding lawn mowers including Craftsman, Cub Cadet, Husqvarna, John Deere, MTD, Murray, Poulan, Poulan Pro, Troy-Bilt and more. Your riding lawn mower is such an important machine at your home, farm or business and it needs to run its best to keep up with the demands of the mowing season.

Our shop will take expert care of it and repair things like carburetor problems, tune-ups, drive train problems, deck and drive belt changes, oil and filter changes, air filter and spark plug changes, adjust the deck height and level the deck, electrical problem or lighting issues as well as tire, wheel and brake problems. We also sharpen and replace bad or worn lawn mower blades. We can fix any riding lawn mower that is currently available today and some older models. We only use the best parts, both OEM and aftermarket to repair your mower.

Today’s riding lawn mower is a very complex machine and everything needs to be in as perfect working order as possible to ensure they start and operate correctly. If just one item on the riding lawn mower is malfunctioning, it can shut down the machine entirely or prevent it from starting in the first place.

Your professional riding lawn mower service mechanic has the special tools and training to repair these complex machines and to tune them to factory specifications and ensure your mowers functions as it should. A riding lawn mower service technician has in-depth knowledge about the carburetor, cylinder, cylinder head, crankshaft, fuel system, pressurized oil system, crankcase and sump and camshaft as well as the valve train, both intake and exhaust and rocker arms. This knowledge makes the repair process faster and helps ensure a quality repair job is done every time. A solid maintenance program to perform things like oil changes as well as air filter changes is something that must be done during scheduled maintenance as recommended by the manufacturer. Oil changes are normally performed at the first 5 hours for a new engine and then every 25 hours thereafter. Some models can go longer between oil changes.

We may rebuild a carburetor, change out a fuel solenoid, replace broken or cracked fuel lines, replace broken or cracked drive belts, replace and change tires, replace or repair the transmission or hydrostatic drive, repair the electrical system, replace and recharge the battery and test the alternator and charging system, repair and service the steering linkages, test and troubleshoot the PTO system and more. It may also be necessary to weld the frame or deck of the riding lawn mower if it cracks or breaks.

If your riding lawn mower has a Briggs and Stratton, Honda, Kohler, Kawasaki, MTD or Tecumseh engine  in it, we can repair and service it for you as well as provide overhaul services as necessary. In many cases a short block is a less expensive repair procedure that can save you hundreds of dollars in repair costs.

The city of Charleston is the capital and largest city in West Virginia. It was first settled in 1788 with a military installation, Fort Lee. It is a city of roughly 50,000 people and the industry varies from chemicals to general merchandising.

Preparing Your Summer Lawn Equipment for Winter Storage

I don’t like to say this, but summer is coming to an end as fall quickly approaches. And when it does come to a close, it is time to start thinking about how you will store your Outdoor Power Equipment. A little preparation here will save you a lot of aggravation later.

Let’s start with your riding lawn mower. If you have an indoor place to store it that is best as to leave it out in the elements severely reduces the lifetime of the mower. Rust and mildew set it and these are never good for a machine.

The end of the mowing season is the best time to have your rider serviced instead of waiting in long lines in the spring. The oil should be changed as well as the oil filter if it is equipped with one. The air filter and spark plugs are the next items to change out. The inline fuel filter is another part that is something to change to keep your fuel as clean as possible before it reaches the carburetor or fuel injectors.

Next item on the list is to sharpen the blades and scrape the deck clean underneath and clean the grass off of the top. Check your deck and drive belts for wear and cracking. Fill the tires with air and lubricate the grease fittings. Lubricate your linkages and cables with cable lube, dry lubricant or whichever your maintenance manual calls for.

Add some fuel stabilizer to the tank and let the engine run for 10 minutes at idle.

Check the overall condition of the mower for any defects and then wash it. Make sure the battery is fully charged and then remove it if storing the machine outdoors or in an unheated area. If you have a trickle charger, put your battery on it for the winter. It is a good idea to check the battery acid levels before you do so.

For push and self propelled lawn mowers, the task is much easier. You just do all the steps above and if you have a battery start mower, then you need to address that as well.

Pressure washers are the one machine that doesn’t see much use throughout the year which causes issues of its own. The other problem is that they are stored in an outside shed which freezes the water in the pump and hose which can break them.

These machines need their oil changed, fuel stabilizer added and the engine ran and the pump should be treated with a product such as Pump Saver. This pushed out the water and lubricates the pump. The machine should also be stored inside in a heated area or one that does not freeze.

Your 2-cycle machines should have fuel stabilizer added to the fuel as well and run for 10 minutes.

Be sure to use all safety precautions when working on your machine as laid out in the applicable owners or service manual.

Just a few simple things can make your next lawn management season a much less frustrating one.

And of course we can do all of the above for you so you don’t have to!
