Well, I had a problem with this mower last year and I don't want to have to deal with it again this year. After about 5 minutes of use the thing just quits on me. I have to wait about 15 minutes and it's good to go again. This goes on and on and I'm tired of it. I keep smelling gas, but it's probably normal with this type of mower. Any Ideas?

Looks like to me that you have " hareatitus of the bunnyus ". Remedy for that is a "Carrot Oil" that can be found at the Fur, Farm and Foot Store. Adminster during one of the down times every time it is down. Should be okay in about 6 uses. If that doesn't work I would try rabbit Stew !                                      Roger.

That's a bit close to 'points'!

Kenny, he was just waiting until one of us stepped in it and asked that question.  Thanks for doing it and not making me the sucker to fall for that dirty trick!

The engine is overheating. Try removing a layer of fur and see how that works.

You need a bigger rabbit.  The grass is too thick for that rabbit and he loses steam & conks out.
