Customer Question
I am the owner of...
I am the owner of Lawn Mower Poulan Pro with a Briggs Stratton Engine series 100700, plate number 22T02-1265-31 09080556. I have about 4 years with the Lawn Mower working about 3 t0 4 Hrs every two wks, about a total of 400 Hrs aprox during the four years. My problem is: I star up the engine without problem and run for 10min. without load, but after 3 to 4 mins cutting the grass suddenly shutdown and then more often when cutting the grass. The gras actually is small size similar wit the past four years. I already sent to repair with Briggs & Stratton 4 shops but the problem persist, please I am eager for your kind support.
