“Yardworks Tecumseh 181-1215-C1”

Written on: 08/05/2016 by Gyped (1 review written)

Despite proper engine care from day 1 this engine has never worked properly. It is hard to start be it the first attempt of the season or the last. I wish I paid a bit more for a Lawnboy or a Honda. Stay away from Tecumseh engines as they suck ass… Read Full Review

“21" model 60-1620-4 ”

Written on: 22/05/2011

21" model 60-1620-4
Cuts the grass of considerable length of about 3-1/2" long with no problem.
However once the bag is full becomes quite hard to push because of the imbalance created by too much weight transferred to the back end.
Next problem is the rear flap that drags under the mower body when pulling backwards. I feel that this should be addressed.
The spring lever assembly is made of thin metal and easily breaks. Should be heavier gauge metal as this item does come under heavier… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/05/2010

This little electric reel mower seemed like a good idea when I bought it 3 years ago at Canadian Tire, but after using it the first summer, I have not been able to get it charged. Canadian Tire is assuming no responsibility for this bad excuse for lawn equipment, and doesn't even know where we could go to fix it. In hindsight, it would have been a good idea to have done some research on Yardworks before the unit was purchased… Read Full Review

“Bought a 24 V Yardworks cordless lawnmower 2 years ago...”

Written on: 06/05/2010

Bought a 24 V Yardworks cordless lawnmower 2 years ago from Canadian Tire. The first summer, it cut both the back and front lawns on one charge. The second summer, I had to charge it twice (one charge for the front lawn and one charge for the back lawn). This year, I can't get the green light to come on no matter how long I try to charge the battery. I did not charge it every 2 weeks, as recommended, and I did not bring it inside for the winter. Perhaps if I'd done those things, it would still… Read Full Review

I used mine once in the fall then brought the battery in the porch all winter and still would not charge not even after 48 hours Canadian tire Junk again !!!! of course they would not help the warranty was a month out even though it was only used for about 45 minutes one cut last fall. Wonder how many customers are getting tired of Crappy Tire Junk and they dont stock any parts to repair or replace the problem on many items . I see now they are trying to sell Stoves, Fridges, Freezers which I imagine will come with the same VERY POOR customer service attitude about time we start buying other places. We have control if we dont but from there they wont sell it . All we all too braindead to use common sense ? Not to mention the high charges if one would use their credit card....... Sick and Tired I will be trying Home Hardwear and others from now on

Written on: 24/06/2009

Decent little mower, except for the Yardworks (and Canadian Tire) service, and the damnable rechargeable battery. Used it twice last summer, then shelved it for the winter, taking care to bring the battery indoors. Once spring had finally sprung, charged the battery up (and was pleased when the green light came on nearly immediately), took it outside and... nothing. My own folly for not having read or remembered the manual, but I'm to charge the battery monthly during the six or seven months… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/06/2009 by RickRagogna (1 review written)

I bought a yardworks 17 hp riding mower 2 yrs ago at Canadian Tire. It usally works well but for some reason the blades bend at the slightest impact with anything. This really isn't too much of a problem but every time I go to buy a replacement blade they are out of stock or on back order. Are these blades that fragile and why are they always out of stock… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/05/2009 by aver (1 review written)

I got a Yardworks 4 in 1 Yard machine from Canadian Tire. I thought a reel mower is supposed to do a superiort cut. I was not impressed with the way it mowed from the start and halve way through the yard on the first mow it quit.
This is the worst piece of equipment I have ever had.
I will not recommend it to anybody.
$238 down the drain… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/08/2008

I have both a 20hp yardworks lawnmower and tractor. I've owned the lawnmower for over 5 years and the tractor for two. Other than routine maintenance they both start like a charm each time. Three pumps to prime the mower and away you go. May bog occassionally when I go more than a week cutting the lawn, but if your expecting a mower to cut through two feet high grass maybe it's time to invest in some farm equipment instead… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/08/2008 by Brian Veall (1 review written)

The handle issue: It is a two-part affair joined by a single butterfly-type screw on each side, with a couple of plastic blocks, the inner surfaces of which are serrated and supposed to interlock and stabilize the joint in one of three positions. This system doesn't work! Any attempt to push the mower up anything but the slightest gradient causes the handle to 'break' at the joint and assume a completely different angle. I've tried applying thumb-bruising torsion to these screws with all my… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/08/2008

I have the exact same problem. Now what do I do? The batteries are expensive. I thought it would last for several years since I took care to follow the instructions to keep everything in good condition. The mower isn't even a year old and I've only used it about a dozen times. Did Canadian Tire give you a new battery or what?

Written on: 09/07/2008 by rojo1 (1 review written)

As much as I love Canadian Tire, I will never buy another Tecumseh Yard Works product of any kind. I bought a rake - the handle fell off,cordless lawn mower - runs out of power before I've finished my tiny lawn, weed trimmer - literally fell apart while I was using it, various small garden tools - all fell apart or bent. I realize that "you get what you pay for", but these products are simply sub-standard: poorly engineered and inferior quality… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/06/2008

After the winter (I did use fuel stabilizer), I topped it up with fresh fuel today and it started and ran very well, filling 3 bags of clippings. Then I ran over an ants nest, throwing up a cloud of dust. It dropped to idle speed and stayed there. I can start it and it will run very smooth, but at idle speed only. There is no throttle adjustment so it is pretty much useless. I guess I am going to find out how good hat 4 year warranty is… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/05/2008

I don't think Yard works is worth the metal its made of. I hope I get thirty bucks when I take it to the salvage yard. We bought the mower last fall and thought that now we had something good that would last us at least ten years or so but instead Ive got this green 350.00 dollar piece of garbage that wont run. The problem with a site like this is you don't find it until you've spent the money and got the run around from canadian tire about the warranty. We phoned the store and the young lady… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/05/2008 by landrix (1 review written)

I bought at a Canadian Tire a lawn mower model: Tecumseh Yard Works 60-1620-4.
Every time i stop it to fill it with gas, i have to wait like 4 hours to make it start again or it simply wont start up!

i used it for 2 summers only so far and now for this year, i actually CANT make it start at all. I took it to a repair guy and he told me I should buy a new good one (which means not yard works) instead of taking this to repair every time it will need, cause it would be less expensive!… Read Full Review

I have the same yard works and each time i want to start the engine, i place the lawn mower on the side for 5 seconds (carburator side) turn back to normal and start the engine.

<br/>Start each time. Try it.

I purchased a Tecomseth lawnworks lawn mower after Canadian Tire repaired it from someone else. According to the sales guy it too had an engine seize but assured me it was completely repaired.

It has worked floorlessly till this past month. I ran out of gas.
I put some in Sunday checked the oil and added about two tablespoons full.
First i had a devils own job to get it to fire up. When it finally did. It died almost immediately.
Now it starts but will not run!. I sure wish i had read these… Read Full Review
