GardenFork: have not seen gas here without ethanol, but will look for that. thx, eric.
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.
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
Luis Valadares: Thank you very much for your video. God bless you.
thurm101: Great video. I think I will start using stabilizer. Maybe add it straight to the gas container.
t4ufit: Well done and I enjoyed the dog also!
funguy4utube: Perfect ... great video .. love the off camera questioning by your associate .. thanks !
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!
Garrett Drissel: Great video!
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.
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. thanks! 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.
William Todd: Don't forget the left handed socket as well LOL.
GardenFork: a left handed breaker bar no less! ;)
William Todd: Spark plug wrench...AKA breaker bar and deep well socket LOL.
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.
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.
Joanne atwood: this is great i don,t nothing about maintance on one
GardenFork: great to hear. a seized engine is no fun. might be time for a new engine then. thanks for the note! 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!!! :))
Mitt Obama: true, but it's way way underneath, certainly not human surface level, just saying.
Mitt Obama: I'm the 134th person to "thumbs up" this video. Great coverage of many areas in a condensed yet engaging way. I certainly enjoyed the dog bits in between. Keep it up sir.
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 sputtering.
toasty ratsa: Cute pups
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: yes Dave, if people take good care of their small engine machines they will last a long time. thanks for the comment here. eric.
