At first I was impressed with the attention and politeness of the staff at Carl's Equipment of Riverhead. In the end it was just to make the sale. After making a sizeable purchase on a mower I feel the courtesy and personality was gone.

I had my mower for one week. I used it once. The mower had a problem where the blade was hitting the underside side wall of the mower deck. I assumed it was the mower blade so I simply ordered a new set of blades. ( If I ordered the blades myself I would have saved $15 by the way. )

Took said mower apart and put the nice brand new blades on. After spinning the blade a half turn I discovered hmmm it is still hitting the deck. Looking closely at the spindel shaft assembly on the top side of the deck I discovered one side bent out of line.

Now I am sorry but one mow of my lawn should not have bent a shaft. Called Carl's equipment and they do not want to hear anything about nothing. The response was it is like buying a car and driving it off of a lot.

My response is simple. If I purchased this product at Home Depot or some other REPUTABLE dealer this problem would not be an issue. Not having a return policy other than we have no returns is not a realistic solution for people who are paying alot of money for equipment. The rudeness of the staff in explaining their non return policy might even be described as defensive.

A Letter has been written to the mower manufacturer and a claim will be filed in small claims court against Carls Equipment. Overall, LESSON LEARNED, furture purchases will be made at Home Depot, Lowes, Or Amazon

Service is terrible. The help at this place seems to hate their jobs. Rude and dismissive, they are very slow and could care less about your business. Fortunately I work near Northeast Equipment in Hauppauge who care about their customers.

I use these guys to service our ride on lawn mower. They are reasonably priced and thir staff is very knowledgable. They dont overcharge either. I would recommend them for your next lawn mower service.
