Ride on mower issues
When my wife and I bought our "for ever" home just a few short months ago, we paid the princely sum of £150 for a ride on lawnmower that kind of came with the house.
The Sovereign Eurorider looks ok and for £150 I thought I was getting a bargain. However keen and please I was to get started with my new purchase, I was soon frustrated and perplexed as I discovered it had completely sized up over winter and the very blunt blades didn't even turn. £90 later I jumped on to have a mow and half way round the garden the belt came off. A new belt was required, "oh you might as we'll service it while you're there", I said.
A further £230 and 3 weeks later after having to hack at the grass with strimmers etc, I managed to cut my grass last week.
I was beginning to think this is easy. I know, I'll give it another go this week and keep on top of the rapidly growing 2/3 acre. Thats where this pleasant story ends. Yep, youve guessed it, it won't start!
I'm going to bite the bullet and buy a new mower. My question is, does anyone have any suggestions which ride on mower I should buy?
