answer 2
The larger rear wheels make the turns easier, and they make lifting the front wheels off the ground much easier. It is the diameter and radius of the larger wheels that make the balancing easier for this type mower. It is much easier to push, pull, and manuever with the larger wheels. Hope this helps.

Gasoline Usage

I have heard that gasoline with ethanol added damages lawn mower engines big time..... Anyone have any knowledge on this subject.

answer 1
The gas will evaporate and leave ethanol deposits that are like a gum. If storing for long periods of time you should run the mower dry first. the carb is the only real issue.
answered 1 month, 3 weeks ago
By
pistol73se
answer 2
It does on certain equipment but I have not had a problem with my Murray at all using gas with ethanol. Having said that, I just paid $50 for a new carb on a gas generator that I bought from another store. I paid for a 3 year extended warranty on the generator and everything was covered except the carb! Read the fine print on any warranty you buy! I will never put ethanol in my rider! The key to using ethanol gas is to run the tank empty when you are through using it! I will also say that I have never run my Murray dry and the carb on it seems to be impervious to ethanol. Its 2 years old and starts right up. Hope this helps.

answer 4
Yes, modern gasoline with the added ethanol can cause fuel related problems. Ethanol absorbs moisture and draws water into the fuel which causes poor performance and over time can harm a small engines plastic components. This is not a problem in cars or vehicles since most are driven daily and fuel is used up or turned more often.
In seasonal type equipment ( mowers/ trimmers/ snow throwers ) fuel sits for long periods of time which allows for this breakdown or moisture problem to occur. POPULAR SMALL EQUIPMENT RETURN ISSUE is caused by bad fuel. Person buys new piece of equipment and then uses old fuel in gas can. Walmart carries many fuel additives or stabilizers that helps prevent this from happening.

Please do not forget to prime the gas (button located under the air cleaner). If this does not work empty all the fuel out and pour in some fresh fuel. Use fuel stabilizer to help the fuel stay fresh much longer.

make sure oil level is good, check gas, make sure spark plug cover is tight, pump the primer 3 times and it should tart. If not, maybe you have water or dirt in your gas.

By

answer 3
check spark plug wire to spark plug connection. make sure you prime with the pumper on the side. (red push button) check the oil level, these engines have an internal low oil cut off that will not let it start if the oil level is low. if you cannot pull the string, disconnect the spark plug and try to turn the engine by hand by spinning the blade from underneath. if it spins, try the above again. if it still does not work, take it back and exchange it for another one. they mak a milion of these thigs on an assembly line; you just happened to get a broken one.

Change out your old gas with fresh gas. Change your spark plug and clean your air filter. Replacement spark plugs are sold at your local Wal-Mart. If this does not solve your problem, than a local small engine repair center may be your best bet.
