Free Lawn Mower, Needs Work


There is still some good tread on those tires.

We're talking Tecumseh quality.

Needs carb and some rust work.


Sad thing is, this thing ran until it was unsafe to operate.

Tecumseh makes a pretty good engine.

Humboldt winters in a car port however, are brutal on a chassis.

What's up Tom!? I love that photo of the mower. I used to have an old mower quite like that one. It only had 3 wheels, but it started up super easily and the engine purred. Finally it was down to 2 wheels and became super sketchy to use, so I had to get rid of it. It was a sad day.

From the picture, the tread on those mower tires still look like they have some years left. Even if you are unable to find someone to take the mower, you should remove the tires. I am sure you will still be able to find a way to utilize them. My mother actually used my old lawn tires for a raised plant garden. It has worked out quite well. Just a thought.

A lawn mower carburetor is smaller and less complex than a regular automobile carburetor, and even a motorcycle carburetor. It works with the same principles that a car one does, only it is supplying fuel for the engine of the lawn mower instead of an automobile. Air and gasoline go in, the vapors mix, and it powers the engine with combustion.
