      First casualty of spring

      My lawnmower is the first casualty of spring. As I've said in other posts it's been warm all winter and I've had to mow a several of times this year already and April I've had to mow every week so far. Well this time while mowing I was in a hurry trying to beat a thunderstorm and I guess I wasn't paying attention to where I put the lawnmower and kind a "high sided" it on a mound causing the mower stop rather quickly. Of course I mumbled a few choice words and pulled the starter cord to try and start it and finish up. I pulled that cord till I was blue in the face with nothing more than a few sputters and a pop or two, buy this time it was raining pretty good so reluctantly I gave up and went to the garage to see if I could figure out why it wouldn't start. I thought I might of snapped the key on the flywheel but when I got down to the it i found out I actually cracked the flywheel.

      Off to Google to find a replacement flywheel and found a new one for $90.00 ouch for that price I really don't need a new one. But i got the part number so on a whim I checked eBay just​ for giggles and low and behold there's a used one for $20.00 so I bought that one this morning. Let's hope it'll work when it arrives.

      Good luck. I was on the verge of selling my lawn tractor for scrap this morning. I'm still trying to figure out why I can't start it - but only sometimes.

      Bought a battery powered mower last year. Am so in love with it. Carefully stored the battery inside over winter. It sure better start for me as I'm the chief mower. Really don't mind as this mower makes it so much easier.
