    Is there a dealer around central AR that stocks Swisher pull behind mowers? I saw several dealers listed on the website, but none seem to keep them in stock.

    Thanks

    Better expand that to is there anywhere in the state that carries them? I’ve called everyone listed as a dealer in the central part of the state, and they all say they’re not actually a dealer.

    People started distancing themselves from Swisher mowers, when they thought there was a connection with Swisher blunt wraps, I mean, tobacco products.

    I sold my 44” swisher last week. I bought it used 6 years ago and have had nothing but issues with it everyone I tried to use it. I put countless pull cords on it, countless belts, fuel systems completely overhauled last year. This year when I went to mow my ditches I had to work on fuel system again, finally got it started and it died as soon as I engaged blades. I took a pic right then and listed it on Facebook, sold it within an hour
    Best decision I’ve made in awhile

    So it ranks in quality alongside Swisher cigars?

    That sounds like pretty much every single thing I own with a gas engine.

    I just had to have a new carb installed on my string trimmer. My tiller needs carb work and the two small engine repair shops near me are one month backed up. They wont even work on the motor on my wood mill.

    owner of one of the shops swears by this stuff. He said this will fix half of carb problems. It did get my tiller running good enough to work the garden

    I put a new carb on that swisher and while at it put a fuel drain valve below the carb so I could drain gas out of carb after every use

    It ran good the next two times I used it then fouled up again. 11 hp Briggs. I only run non ethanol in my small engines, this was the only one that gave me much trouble so I eliminated it

    I’ll try to find some of that locally. Right now I’ve got two pressure washers, two chainsaws, a blower, and a push mower that all need attention. All but one pressure washer have had the carb replaced.

    Sorry for the hijack but
    I’ve had very good luck using this stuff keeping my motors going.
    Never had to work on anymore carbs.
    I try to not let my gas get old and make sure to put a couple ounces in every time I fill the tank.

    I think it’s about the same as Seafoam at 1/2 the price. Most every auto parts store has it , also Walmart

    I’ve revived several engines successfully with mechanic in a bottle.

    I don't know about Swisher mowers but I know about Swisher Sweets.
