Where to get a lawn mower, or other small engine, fixed?

lawnmower grass closeupWatching the grass grow, Dave emails:

With all the nice weather I now have to mow my lawn far too early this year and my lawn mower won't start! Any recommendations for a shop that fixes a small engine in the capital region??

Upside: Dave won't have to mow the grass during this early spring until the mower's fixed. Downside: the grass will keep growing in the interim.

Got a suggestion for Dave? Please share!

Turf and Snow, he's out New Scotland Ave right before the Normanskill...kind of looks like a garage next to a house. He always fixes our stuff and doesn't charge ridiculous prices.

I've had my riding mower and snowblower repeatedly serviced by Emerich's Sales & Service in Charlton. They'll do home pick-up and drop-off if needed. They've always done a reliable job and I've never had a problem with them at all.

If you're in or near Saratoga, check out Spring Valley Small Engine Shop on Henry north of Lake Ave. They're right next to my office and they've got a driveway full of lawnmower jobs right now.

Weisheit Engine Works in Glenmont has a good reputation, from what I hear.

If you're south of Albany, Daddy Rats in Catskill on 385 is great. Roz picks up and delivers too. Not sure what range she covers, but we've used her for years for our snowblower and lawnmowers.

Also, depending on how big or maybe small your yard is..
maybe go with a reel mower. The Fiskars Reel Mower is really nice, light and easy and doesn't require any gas or electric. Just human power!

for southern Rensselaer Count, Bob @ Bob's Rental in West Sand Lake is very good with small engine repair.

Have been trying to find a phone number or contact info for Daddy Rats Small Engine Repair in Catskill, does any one have it? Not listed in White pages...

Just took ours in to Weisheit Engine Works in Glenmont: really cool old-fashioned hardware place, two older guys who just exude competence. And they say they'll have a 24h turnaround - pretty cool local find. Thanks!

Leaf Peeper Porter - a rich, malty dark beer nicely balanced by a touch of local apple cider (pre-fermentation for nice dry cider notes), ginger, cinnamon, and locally grown hops to brighten everything up. Basically, a rich dark beer finished with a nice apple-y fall crispness, perfect for fall in the Capital Region!
