3 Signs You Need a New Riding Mower, Harris, North Carolina

Nothing is more frustrating than dealing with a riding mower issue, especially when the grass is in peak growing season. If you feel like you are paying to fix the equipment too often, it may be time to invest in a new one. Here, the specialists at Stanly Tractor Company in New London, NC, offer three signs you should purchase a new mower.

3 Indicators Your Riding Mower Should Be Replaced

1. Knocking or Engine Vibrations

Excessive knocking or vibrating could point to a broken rod or a bent crankshaft. However, the engine is one of the most expensive parts to replace on a riding mower. Instead of trying to fix it or purchase a new component, it’s cheaper to invest in a newer model.

2. Rusted Deck

TRiding Mowerhe deck encases the blade and keeps the operator and others safely separated from it. This component also provides support for the rest of the mower. Once it rusts, there is a risk of the blade coming loose and hurting someone. Corrosion also makes the mower unstable and thus unsafe to ride.

3. Exhaust Problems

Smoke coming from the exhaust usually means worn rings or scoring on the mower’s cylinder. The problem could also indicate engine oil is flooding into the cylinder. Regardless of the cause, exhaust issues are as expensive as engine repairs to fix. Simply replace the mower instead.
