Customer Question

Hi. I have a toro self pulling lawn mower (recycler). After winter it does start but does not get to its rpms and then stops again. Any quick tips on this?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so we can help you best.
Customer: Not sure what more I can say. When I pull the starter cord it does start. At first it just sputtered a bit and then stopped after a couple tries it does run for a little but never gets to its full rpms. Seems like it's stalling
JA: Is there anything else the Small Engine Technician should be aware of?
Customer: I think that's it. The mower is new from last summer
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Small Engine Technician about your situation and then connect you two.

Briggs engine? Have you drained the carburetor bowl to be sure it is not filled with water!
