Fixing a pull rope on a push mower

push mower pull rope solution

I had some trouble with the pull rope on our push mower yesterday.

One of the things I like about this mower is how easy it is to take apart. A good socket set along with a philips screwdriver was all that was needed to get to the pull rope mechanism.

The problem was a small twig that had somehow found its way inside preventing the rope from activating the plastic fingers that spring out and catch the flywheel so it can turn as you pull the rope.
