I took my push mower to D.R.O. Services to get the recoil spring fixed. I asked Don what the cost would be and he said I won't know until I start working on the mower. I asked him to call me with the price before working on the mower. He called the next day to tell me my mower was ready, I ask Don the price and he replied $85.00, I was shocked. I said are you kidding.His reply was I had to take off the gas tank( which is 2 bolts.) I complained alot but I had to pay just to get my mower back. I gave a credit card and he doesn't accept  cc I offered a check, but he insisted on cash. I had to leave and get cash. He said he had 35 years of experience. He should be able to give a quote before any works begins, and he should tell everyone that he takes only cash.I checked with other small engines repair shops and Dons price was 50-75% higher than thiers. I bet the IRS would like to know why he only takes cash.

Don Ownbey is also a handy man, lawn maintenance, tree work, small engine repair,concrete, grading and also auto repair. He may do great work, but you can find someone for 1/2 the price

Barb, you must be a family member or you just like paying a higher price. The sad thing (for Don) is that I could have given him alot of business. You should take all your small engines repairs to ACE Hardware, they give you upfront pricing and they also take Credit Cards. $85.00 for a recoil spring, what a rip off.  You can buy a motor for that, well maybe not from Don.

Great Service

AUTHOR: Barbara - ()

 I have used DRO Services- Lawnmower Service & Repair on two or three occasions. I have been very pleased with my mower. The service was quick and through. The prices are less than the leading lawnmower shops in the area and I have no complaints at all. I would recommend this company to anyone and I will use them again.
