Once I got it going today I went out and took care of the chickens, then puttered around the yard for awhile.
Mowing the raspberry patch
I was doing ok when the mower abruptly stopped and it wouldn’t restart.
A nap and a think
Nothing to do but take a little nap and think on it which I did. I thought that darn mower does this to me quite often and when I try to restart it it seems like there’s not much compression so, maybe a valve is sticking open and not sealing when it should.
Whacking the mower
So after the nap I got a big five pound hammer. First I tried to start the mower and it sputtered a bit but wouldn’t keep going so I got the hammer and whacked the head fairly hard a few times right where the valves were located.
I tried to start it again and it started up so maybe when it screws up I just need to whack it. Time will tell on that one.
Mowed raspberry patch
The raspberries in this patch are just starting to ripen. I found one in there and ate it.
Best to eat them
That weed mower wore me out and I was out of energy for the rest of the day so I finished the day chair hopping mostly.
Nice day, I got plenty of exercise.
