I'm trying to buy something off of www.discountmowerparts.com, but am having trouble. No return of emails or calls. Is this place legit, dead, or a scam?

Never heard of them , Most places will return messages in 24hrs at the most

usually places that have "Discount" in their titles are Chinese wholesalers who drop ship the parts and do not actually stock them.

 

On another note,

I'd be happy to help you with your parts needs  what are you looking for? :thumbs:

We also have a few other sponsors here that may be able to help as well, All the sponsors here are mostly one man bands and we deal direct with our customers.

Amazing how they are trying to hide who they are.

 

There's no real-world address on the site.

http://discountmower...rmation/contact

I suspect DE is a cover location for an address that doesn't have state taxes.

 

The same phone number shows up as Yard Chief Small Engines

http://www.yardchief...&id=1&Itemid=57

They have rates for services, but I can't find an address on that site.  Maybe they do tune-ups via email?

The 2nd phone number on the YardChief web-site appears to in MA (couldn't get an exact address)

Found the following site that suggests yardchief is in NJ
