Lawnmower repair

Tammy from Aranui

Hello is there anyone one out there that maybe tinkers with lawnmowers in their spare time. Mine won't start. It sounds like it wants to but just won't. Happy to pay to have it looked at, but cannot afford to take it to a shop and pay their prices at the moment. If my lawns get much longer I will be on here looking for some grazing cattle next. Thank you.

As part of Stuff’s Buy Local project, we are profiling six small Canterbury businesses that people may not already know about and that are in need of local support.
