What does a lawn mower repair cost?

Ride-on lawn mower repair and service costs_

The cost to repair your lawn mower will largely depend on the severity and complexity of the repair, along with the age, model and type of mower. There’s a host of issues that can occur with a lawn mower after a few years of trimming the lawn. Unexpected bumps, debris or accidents can wreak havoc on your mower. For this reason, you’ll usually find you’re charged by the hour for labour. The average labour cost sits at roughly £30-£50 per hour.

The rest of the lawn mower repair cost will come down to the price of the materials required. A motor repair from a trusted tradesperson will be around £20-£100 to supply the parts. However, for a rotary pusher repair, the material cost is much dearer, sitting at around £80-£500.

Lawn mower tune-up cost

A tune-up is like a car service. It mainly focuses on changing or cleaning the air filter and spark plug, and replacing the oil. It’s a great solution to keep your mower in tip-top condition.

The average lawn mower tune-up cost is around £60. This includes at least £10 for the oil, filters and plugs, and an hour of labour on top.

What does a lawn mower crankshaft repair cost?

The cost of repairing a lawn mower crankshaft will vary depending on the severity of the damage and repairs required. You could be looking at a cost anywhere between £200-£800.

Could I repair a bent crankshaft myself?

Theoretically, you could repair a bent crankshaft yourself. However, in doing so, you could invalidate your warranty. For that reason, we’d recommend getting a professional to carry out the repair for you. Alternatively, you could consider carrying out the repair yourself and then getting the lawn mower serviced by an authorised service centre. Just make sure you check the terms on your warranty first.

  • Startup and test run

  • Check tyre pressure and condition
