Customer Question

JA: Hi. What do you want help with?
Customer: a san li lawn mower please
JA: What's the make and model of the mower? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: sanli LSP42
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: GOOD 5 YRS I THINK
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: I've just been mowing and then switched off to empty out some grass, then came back and couldn't get it started, tipped it up so I could see nothing was fouling the blades which it wasn't. Then eventually got it started but is now blowing out white smoke and spitting out what I presume is oil out of the front bit.
