I purchased a secondhand lawnmower this year and have been experiencing problems with it picking up the grass cuttings. It just seems to block up and stall.
It is a Mountfield Empress 16.
It have been struggling to get it started and it's not running smoothly and emitting black smoke (I have been using "old" petrol - which I know is a problem - didn't know petrol can go off)
Any advise / help would be appreciated.
