My handle on my walk behind has been pretty loose lately, so I decided to tighten the right bar to the base of the mower to eliminate the wiggling. The screw snapped, so off to the store I went.
I came back and did a pretty swell job, then I tightened another nut above it - now that one snapped. Unfortunately I was out of the right sized screw, and I had to improvise, washers wouldn't be enough.
This handle will never be loose again!!!
The larger nuts were used as washers, because the part of the screw underneath was bare (it had no grooves).
