lawn mower repair cost
Just received an estimate of $165 to repair my mower. The next shock was seeing the cost of new mowers.
--any advice on whether it makes sense to put more money into this mower, which has already had two other repair/tune-ups?
The repair shop said that it will rebuild the carburator and put a new belt on the mower. This is a Scotts 22" mower with a Tecumseh engine--6.5 hp OHV engine on "high-wheel power-propelled front wheel drive 3-in-1 convertible - mulch/bag/discharge" mower." --Scotts Model # OVRM105-120, bought about 8-10 years ago.
Is $165 a fair price for a repair like this? This is a repair shop based in the Wash.DC/northern Virginia area. --Thanks for any advice....
