Yardmachine 500 series

by trish

I just purchased a yard machine 500 series with a bagger on it through amazon.com. It is 21 inch and 158 ccs and its looks very nice. I was also very easy to put together .

The only problem is since I got it I have not been able to get it to start I pull and pull and it never starts. I have tried just about every thing i can think of to start it I even thought maybe i'm just not strong enough to start it.

However my sons father came over to help and he barely got it started after a long while of trying. Of couse in the middle of mowing it cut off and he was gone and i could get it back going.

Well to sum it all up I ended up paying over two hundred dollars for a lawnmower that I can't use and my grass is very long. I guess next time maybe I should just get a electric mower like I started to do.

However i do have a very nice looking lawnmower sitting in my yard that i try everyday to start. I did have a cheap one from Walmart that started very easy with one or two pulls every time but it finally gave out on me next time I will go back and get the cheap Walmart one.

Has anyone got any ideas what could make this easier to start. I would be very happy to try any ideas you may have other than return it which I would if I had the box and stuff.

check the intake manifold, it is plastic and they are known for breaking.
