The rain has finally stopped and now that it has we all have rainforest quality of grass to mow. So what do you do it your mower won’t start? We asked our Oakfield, NY Service manager, Roger Fisher, the top reasons a lawn mower wouldn’t start. Roger has 28 years experience and started out in the turf service shop.
“The first question to ask is, is it turning over? If it is turning over, check your gas level. It sounds silly but it’s probably the top reason a newer mower doesn’t start.”
We get busy with life and sometimes we forget the simple explanations.
“If it is not turning over, check your PTO switch. If your PTO is engaged your mower will not start. If it’s not the PTO check your parking brake. Your parking brake either needs to be set or you have to engage the brake with your foot petal manually.”
“If your mower is not turning over and it’s not the brake or the PTO check your lights. If your lights don’t turn on when you turn the key, chances are your battery is dead or could be disconnected.”
If none of those are your answer then it’s time to make a phone call to your LandPro service department. But being able to answer those 4 simple questions will allow your LPE service manager to make a proper service call and one of those 4 reasons is more than 50% of the mower issues we see.

Like it or not, here in the North East snow is a reality. And after the mild Winter last year, a mild Winter this year is pretty unlikely. If you own a John Deere (or want to!) this is a great video to brush up on or learn how to remove your loader - and prepare to move some snow!
