Question DetailsAsked on 4/1/2014

I need to get rid of a used lawn mower. Does anyone pick them up for free?

Lawn mower does not work properly. It is 9 years old and a Sears - rear wheel self-propelled.

Nope. Probably not. A small engine repair shop MIGHT take it off your hands if you haul it to them. You MIGHT be able to give it away on Craigslist for free. Ditto to putting a sign on it that it works but needs work and available for free, and put by curb for a few days (if it won't get you a ticket) to see if it drives off by itself.


Replacement cost about $230-275 at WalMart for 22 inch, $300's at most other stores. If it runs and cuts OK just poorly, professional diagnosis probablyk about $50 - total including repair likely about $100-150 range if just a minor item.


I would empty out gas and oil, remove the engine, remove the handlebar and break it down to pieces, remove wheels, and throw it away in stages in your regular trash bin. You might have to take a sawzall to the deck to fit in a trash can, or might be able to bend it by jumping on it while propped up on a board or log, once the engine is removed.


If you have any interest in trying to fix it, you could use the Answer This Question button below the question and describe the problem and symptoms and we might be able to help you fix it - common just a plug replacement, dumping water out of gas tank, cleaning air filter, emptying fuel filter, or crimping plug wire tighter is all it takes.
