Roque Ortiz: Best video by far that I have found that explains how to change oil on a
mower. Simple and informative, thank you for posting this video.
itsjustdeb579: @erochow I meant this morning in my post below... old timers sets in
sometimes in my typing. LOL
GardenFork: good to hear Raheel, if you subscribe, we post new vids each week! thxc,
SuperSYMPATHIZER: didn't oil come from the ground,,,,just saying,,,love the video though
omar dolores: well done i know i subscribed!
gerald nixon: hi, thanks for getting back to me, my cord goes back in fine i was just
curious, i did'ent want to do any damage to the mower i only got it a few
months ago, better safe than sorry, thanks! gerald.
Robert Martinez: nice video Eric very thorough.... and your camera gal has a beautiful
voice... you must let her star in your videos
William Todd: New engine, no, new mower would be more practical. An engine would probably
cost as much if not more than the mower LOL. I was going to repower my old
Craftsman Garden Tractor but the replacement engine was almost $2,000 a new
mower was about $400 less.
Greg Modd: I love the interaction between you two "if you don't do that it won't
start" - "ya I've learned that... more than once" lol
Ryan Deen: Great video, now I know how to perform mine. Thank you
itsjustdeb579: OH wow.. thanks for the video. I just got a new mower. Didnt know anything
about washing the underside. How often did you say change the oil? Once a
season? I have a huge yard, about an acre, and i mow about every three days
during the growing season. I mow in sections because its so hot in Texas.
Jason Price: yes, I have a snapper, Briggs and Stratton engine, tilt it so air filter is
upward if not done this way oil will get into air filter, and you mower
wont start, learned from experience
Jorge Romo: Well, i'm trying the fuel stabalizer on the next tune up. Hopefully, it'll
make the engine last just another 3 yrs. So far, i've had mine for 5 yrs.
Joanne atwood: this is great i don,t nothing about maintance on one
romansandals: Great video. I do have one question regarding tipping the mower when
draining the oil, etc. My mower has a briggs and stratton engine which
looks just like yours. The B & S manual states to always tip the mower with
the spark plug "skyward", which would be tipping it back on this model. But
the mower manual states to always tip the mower with the air filter side
up, which would be on its side, like in your video. Which direction is safe
when the manuals are contradictory? Thanks!
GardenFork: great to hear. a seized engine is no fun. might be time for a new engine
then. thanks for the note! eric.
Luis Valadares: Thank you very much for your video. God bless you.
thinkbhavana: great video. super cute dogs! thanks for the info. just bought my first
mower and it's helpful to know how to keep it running well. best to you.
Timothy Boss: Great video Eric. I sure could have used this a month ago. Yes, we mow
early in Texas! I was trying to figure out where to change the air filter,
and I disassembled the carburetor! What a mess! Got it up and running
smooth now. Thanks for all the tips!! Tim in Dallas.
Fallen2Dope: Thank you so much for posting i paid $100 for a lawn mower last year and i
want it to last and haven't done a single thing to it yet!
GardenFork: spring is coming! time to tune up the lawnmower! eric.
Tearable Paperdoll: Outstanding! Don't lose your camera-operator - she asks the questions I
would ask! Very well done & very helpful, THANK YOU!! (I am currently
trying to unstuck a seized engine - bleah!) This is me SUBSCRIBING!!! :))
curiousmarksman7: Thanks so much for the advice. I try not to put any gasoline with ethanol
in any of my gas powered equipment (including my cars). That stuff is
garbage. I am so glad that ethanol free gas is being offered more and more
where I live.
Mitt Obama: true, but it's way way underneath, certainly not human surface level, just
GTown Dave: Thanks Neighbor. If people take your advice, they'll save tons of money in
the long run. I've been using the same mower for 25 years; I'm on my 3rd
William Todd: Spark plug wrench...AKA breaker bar and deep well socket LOL.
GardenFork: hi Gerald, the pull cord is supposed to wind back into the engine housing
after the engine starts. if yours does not, it needs to be repaired.
Laurie Karn: Are they all your dogs?
Butch Torres: wow! this is a nice video. both of you did a good job. very detailed
information and your labs are nice too. thanks a lot!
t4ufit: Well done and I enjoyed the dog also!
Tracy Vigus: Oh my... such a great and wonderful video. Really! It's comfy and easy
going with a family 'feel'. Thanks for the vote of confidence for all of us
"never done it" people. I knew it was pretty easy, but wow. Thanks for
taking the time to share.
T Stratton: Thanks for putting this together. I forgot to run the mower before emptying
the oil, but at least it's changed. It runs so much better now - no more
Raheel Soomro: Thanks for wonderful video... you are the best.
GardenFork: we just started out lawnmowers this weekend to cut the grass, thanks for
watching, please consider subscribing! eric.
mpmes: Thankyou so much for the tips... That was a very helpful video.
Gustavo Chavez: Great job.
GardenFork: thanks, i haven't had to replace the belt yet, but when i do, we'll shoot a
video of it. eric.
Larry Burch: Could have used these tips 25 years ago... I when thru so many mowers....
Now I got a small yard and just use electric mower, it starts every time.
But thanks about the cleaning the deck I do need to do that.
GardenFork: a left handed breaker bar no less! ;)
Garrett Drissel: Great video!
William Todd: I do small engine repair on the side, and I'm amazed the number of people
who don't do any routine maintenance on their lawn/garden equipment. I
changed oil in a riding mower last week where the oil even with an oil
filter on the engine was completely black, meaning it hadn't been changed
for several seasons at least, maybe never changed. My old Craftsman Garden
Tractor ran for 21 years with just routine maintenance every year, finally
the engine threw a rod for some reason 3 years ago.
MNAviator: A small engine mechanic in our area does not recommend the use of stabil
because he has seen gunked up carburetors because of it. We had a generator
that was in long term storage with stabil in the tank. We ended up
disasembling the carburetor to clean it.
itsjustdeb579: OH wow.. that was easy!!! I changed the oil in my little mower yesterday. I
cleaned the underside.. YUCK.. it was a mess. My air filter is a little
different.. i washed it, its a sponge and soaked it with the oil again. Its
fairly new so i think the plug is still good. I looked in my husbands goody
shed, he had some gas additive, so i added that to my gas can. Thanks for
the video!!! Yes, I am taking the oil to the jiffy lub this morning. They
take it for free.
chuckarama451: Wait... You're telling me I have to put OIL in my mower? That can't be
right. I've had mine for ten years and I'm pretty sure I've never had to
put any in it before... It stopped smoking a couple of years ago, which I
thought was better for the environment anyways.
GardenFork: thanks robert, she makes changing the oil a lot better! eric.
gerald nixon: Hi eric cool vidio, but could you anser one question for me are you soppose
to keep the pull cord pulled out when runing your motor, thanks.
oscra brenal: thank you so much
GardenFork: good to hear from you. lawn mower season is here soon! eric.
thurm101: Great video. I think I will start using stabilizer. Maybe add it straight
to the gas container.
Lois Laney: Good tips, I was just going to ask about sharpening the blade, will have to
check out your other video. Thanks.
