I would love a fire pit for my yard, any ideas?

I found a really nice selection of fire pits on sears.com, but if you want something more elaborate, I found an online store that features 117 unique models....FirePitShowcase.com. This site enables you to select one based on fuel type, color/finish, and price range. They also offer direct home delivery within a week of purchase and US-based customer service.

Go to:

One other online store featuring more elaborate models, that was featured on HGTV is:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Grass clippings can escape out the front if the grass catcher is too full or if the grass catcher is not able to vent any air. Think of grass catcher as filter bag in a vacuum cleaner. Air must be able to vent out the bag in order for additional air to be pushed into the bag.

Try cleaning the inside of the bag of any grass and debris that may be sticking to the inside. Also check under the mower deck to see if grass has built up along the top and sides.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Craftman lawnmower model 917.388021, carburetor is leaking fuel

If the fuel is pouring out of the carburetor, the needle that is attached to the float is not regulating the fuel level. Either the carburetor is defective or some debris has gotten in the needle and seat. I recommend exchanging the carburetor and replacing the fuel line. If the inside of the fuel line is coming apart, it will cause this problem.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Thank you for your question.

 

I will be happy to assist you. Other than what you have already mentioned I recommend draining out the old gas first. To do that just remove the fuel line from the fuel filter and place it in a fuel approved container. After it is drained, reconnect the fuel line and fill the tank with fresh fuel. Then try to start the engine. If the engine starts let it run a few minutes before you start to run the tractor around. If it seems to be fine, check all the functions of the tractor.

 

If the engine does not start pour a teaspoon of fuel into the throat of the carburetor. Then try to start the engine. If the engine starts or tries to start, I recommend cleaning or replacing the carburetor. If you need assistance on cleaning the carburetor click on this

Once it is cleaned the engine should start right up.

 

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Yard fungus.

If you're having the moist, cool weather that much of the US is enduring, it's contributing to the growth of fungus, and the fungus should disappear when the weather warms up and dries up. You can also manage your lawn care in a way that doesn't encourage fungi. I've attached a link to an article from the university of Delaware Cooperative Extension Service that described several fungal diseases and discussed how to manage them.

As for the stones or bricks, are you saying that you want to line the sidewalk with them as edging? Or edge a flower bed with them. Either way, put a layer of weed blocking fabric under the stones o bricks, because getting rid of weeds that sprout between bricks and stones is a hassle--especially stones, since they're irregularly shaped. The usual practice is to excavate a shallow trench, put in a couple inches of sand -- which makes it easier to move the bricks or stones into position -- lay landscape fabric over the sand, and set the stones and bricks. ----------- As for whether to use brick or stone, it depends which you prefer and which suits the style of your home. I've used both and I prefer brick because I can lay them flat and use them as a mow strip -- in other words, when I mow, I can push the mower with the wheels on one side of the mower on the bricks. That way, I don't have to edge with a string trimmer or edger. it saves a lot of work.

yard tractor deck
by Manage My Life 
March 21st, 2011

The deck should be able to move back and forth to some degree. Normally you can move the deck from side to side by maybe a couple of inches. If it's too loose you'll know when you engage the blades as it will vibrate excessively.

If there is any question I recommend you contact the store and make them aware of the situation and see if they can resolve it for you. We want to make sure you are comfortable and happy with your purchase.

Yard Tractor model #: 28008

If you were operating the tractor on a hill or incline this could have allowed some oil to be pushed up into the head. That would cause smoke while the engine was running and it would show up maybe a few minutes after you were off of the hill or heading the other direction.

Also, you will want to check the oil level as a slight over-fill will cause a lot of smoke.

If all of that looks to be in good shape you may want to consider having a technician come out and take a look at the engine. With it being new there are not many things that can cause this to happen.
