I went out on an errand today leaving my stepson to cut the grass. I told him about the little red bulb on the mower to press three times - does it really have to be three times?
- and that as it was the first use since last summer it might take a while to start.
I got back to find the mower on the patio and not a blade of grass cut. He couldn't get it started. Reckoned he was pulling the cord/pressing the bulb etc for ten minutes and no luck.
I checked the oil - fine. Checked the gas - not much but it was all we had. Spark plug was connected.
I gripped the handle, pulled the cord gently until it stopped, here we go I was thinking as I jerked the cord back - for a start first time.
