Clinic is for working machines only and requires reservations.


The University of Kentucky’s popular lawn mower clinic is March 2-5 at the Agriculture Machine Research Lab on the Lexington campus.  

“We aim to provide preventative maintenance for the upcoming lawn care season and give students in the UK Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering a chance to fine-tune their skills,” said Josh Jackson, assistant biosystems engineering professor.  

UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment students will power wash, clean air filters, sharpen blades and change oil for $45 for most mowers. Students will replace spark plugs in all mowers for an additional $5.   

To reserve a spot, sign up online at Registrants should include their name, phone number, make and model of mower, drop-off date and whether the mower needs a new spark plug.  

The Agriculture Machinery Research Lab is located at 411 Stadium View Drive in Lexington. Participants should drop off mowers between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. EDT on either March 2 or 3. Pick up is from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. March 4 and 5.   

The lawnmower clinic is the biggest annual fundraiser for the UK BAE student branch of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers. Organizers will accept cash or checks payable to “BAE Student Branch” at drop off and pick up. 

Students are not able to offer repair services for broken machines. Organizers may only accept a limited number of mowers, so reservations are required. Clinic organizers cannot accept reel mowers, garden tractors or riding mowers, and all machines must be operational.
