Is it worth repairing a lawn mower?

Thumbtack Editors

To determine if it's better to repair or replace your lawn mower, consider the following:

  • How much will it cost to repair vs. replace your mower?
  • Does your lawn mower break down frequently? 
  • Is your lawn mower more than 10 years old?

If it's expensive to fix your broken engine or transmission, buying a brand new lawn mower may be a better investment. And if it's old and requires constant repairs, it's probably time to consider purchasing a newer model. 

Don't hesitate to ask your repair technician if they recommend you repair or replace your lawn mow
