Anybody know of a service that repairs (larger) mower engines? 400cc-ish
The one on our Efco (though it's generic) ride-on mower has died (oil being ejected from the exhaust - assume significant piston or head issues) and, by the time the local place has swapped it for a new one and replaced a couple of belts, they want £1100. I think that's about what I paid for it 5 years ago.
The mower, I've discovered, is really generic and all the maIn brands from John Deere to Mountfield to Honda do a version of it and stick in their engine (presumably) and badge.
I've tried contacting Efco UK (who also seem to be the engine manufacturer) but without response.
It seems a real waste to write the mower off but I really don't want to throw £1100 at it either - especially as I really could do with something a bit bigger for new home.
Added complication is obviously that I'm moving house in 3 weeks and Eve's treatment.
