You can finance just about anything these days, even T-shirts from your favorite boutique! Although many have never thought of “financing” a graphic tee, it is a pretty popular option right now! We are not in the T-shirt selling business, but we will give you one with the purchase of a mower, and we have financing available for ALL credit types!
If you have great credit, you can walk in to just about any store and select what you want with no worry about if you’ll be approved or not! For these customers, we are able to offer ZERO % interest on mowers and low interest rates on all other products we carry.

The greatest majority of our lenders report your payments, helping you continue to improve your score!
We understand that things happen and some of our customers need a no credit check option, and we have more than one lender for these customers! While you may not be able to purchase a fancy new mower with no credit check, you can purchase any of the buildings we offer! Your investment will not only serve its intended purpose but with on time payments, it will help build your credit and repair your score.
We are excited to be able to offer our customers so many financing options!

In this blog, M&D Enterprises & Lawnmower Shops professionals will cover the basics of servicing a lawnmower. We will discuss industry standards as well as M&D processes and procedures and the various services we offer at our stores. We feel education is key in understanding the importance of servicing and maintaining your lawn equipment. While routine maintenance and service may seem costly, it’s always cheaper than the alternative of replacing engines, hydraulics, and other expensive parts that will result if a consistent maintenance plan is not followed.
The average expense of a complete engine service is $160 to $180 depending on the model of your machine. Larger commercial mowers that can require more expensive air filters and more engine oil are a bit more costly to service.
What we do:
When you bring your lawnmower in for our Service Special, we strive to make sure that your equipment is ready to last you through the entire mowing season. Not only do we service the engine, but we will inspect the mower to make sure you have good blades, spindles, belts, and pulleys. No one enjoys taking their equipment to the shop more than once a year. So we examine the machine thoroughly to try our best to locate any future, potential problems. If belts are worn or spindle bearings are noisy, we will reach out to you and see if you wish to have these items replaced so they don’t leave you stranded during the mowing season when they fail. If your blades can be sharpened we ask if you prefer we do that, and if they are past the point of sharpening we offer to replace them if you prefer that.
We like to cover these items and spend the needed time to get your machine ready for the season during our service special period held in the winter and early spring while our mechanics have ample time to fix them. It’s best we do this rather than waiting until summer when we may be as much as 2 weeks out on getting a mower in the shop due to all the work we pick up once the mowing season starts. This wait time happens due to those who failed to get their machines in during the service special time period and waited until the busy time of the mowing season for us to work on them, or due to impromptu break downs.
How often should you service your machine:
Industry professionals recommend that you service the engine on your mower every year due to our harsh, dry, dusty, mowing environment. They also recommend servicing your hydraulic system every other year or every 200 hours if you are a commercial mower or mowing more than that per year.
What is included in the service special?
When your mower comes to M&D for the service special we will service the engine. This includes changing the air filter, oil filter and fuel filter, new spark plugs and fresh oil. Once again as mentioned above we will give your mower a full examination to make sure no other parts are needed to maintain your equipment.
The price of servicing your engine is much cheaper than replacing it due to a lack of maintenance. Just the cost of an engine can run you $800-$3000, and that does not include the shop hours of labor that it can take to remove and replace the bad engine.
Hydraulic System Service:
Just as you should maintain the engine on your mower the hydros, (hydraulic drive/steering system on zero turn mowers) If serviceable, the hydraulic system should be maintained as well. It is recommended to service the hydros on your mower the first time at 75 hours and then every 200 hours or two years after that. A Hydro service consists of changing the hydraulic oil filters and hydraulic oil. Some smaller residential mowers may not have this option such as the Hustler Raptor, Bigdog Alpha, or Snapper Tractor style mowers. These smaller mowers have a sealed hydro and fluid cannot be changed. Failure to maintain your hydros can be very costly to replace and will void any warranty you have. One Hydro can cost $1300- $2500 depending on the model of your mower.
Depending on the model of mower you have a hydraulic service that can range in price from $150 to $200 from residential to commercial machines. More expensive filters and larger quantities of fluids are the key factors in the increased pricing on large commercial machines.
Pickup and Delivery:
Now that you have some idea about what we do when your equipment is in the shop, let’s talk about getting the mower to us. Equipment can be dropped off by you the customer at any of the four locations, Canton, Weatherford, Seiling, or the Main Street store in Woodward.
Not able to drop the equipment off?
Maybe you don’t have a trailer or you work during the day and it’s not easy for you to get it to us. We offer pickup and delivery. We charge $25 in town and out of town is $1 per mile from our store to the mower’s location. This fee helps us pay for the fuel in the truck and the driver needed to get us your equipment. This charge is a one time fee per service and gets your equipment picked up and brought back to you. If you drop your mower off at one of our satellite stores then there is no charge to get it to our service centers and back to the store you delivered it to.
Are you a DIY type of person? (Do It Yourself)
That’s great as well, it just needs to be done. At M&D Enterprises & Lawnmower Shops we offer all the parts you need to do the job. We sell them individually or in extremely convenient service kits. These kits from the various engine manufacturers such as Kohler and Kawasaki include Oil, Oil Filter, Air Filter, and Pre Filter, Spark Plugs and Fuel Filter, And vary in costs from $45 to $90.

Customer service is our top priority! While in one of our stores you may often hear the sales staff ask a customer to leave a Google review with their buying experience. Google reviews help potential customers feel comfortable about their choice to do business with M&D. Do you read business reviews before you make a purchase? What about after a purchase, do you leave a review? Most business owners appreciate your feedback!
We hope that all of our customers have a positive experience any time they are in our stores, and we would love to hear about it in a Google or Facebook review! If you have an unpleasant experience, we would like to hear about that, too, in a personal message, so we can make certain that the issue is corrected.
We also love to share pictures of our customers with their M&D products! Feel free to share them with us by sending a message to our Facebook page, and we will share them on the page or in a blog!
When you think of M&D Enterprises your first thought is most likely MOWERS! Although we offer a large variety of products, mowers are where it all started, and we have something for everyone! Zero turn mowers, tractor style mowers with a steering wheel, rear engine riders with a steering wheel and walk behind (push) mowers can be found at all five of our locations!
A lot has happened in the world of zero turn mowers since the first commercial unit hit the market in 1949! Things like Smooth Track Steering, Flex Forks and My Ride Suspension! If you are in the market for a mower, residential or commercial, we are a one stop shop! Mowers and accessories can be purchased, installed and serviced at M&D Enterprises.
Is mowing a dreaded chore for you, or do you enjoy it? I love to put my earbuds in and soak up the sunshine while mowing. I also love the look of a freshly mowed lawn. If you are just the opposite, a zero turn mower may be perfect for you as it can cut your mowing time drastically!
Do you have a small lawn or a gate that you must go through to get to your back yard? We offer deck sizes as small as 34” on select zero turns. Snapper offers a 28” deck on a rear engine rider and up to a 48” cut on a tractor style mower.
Need something to mower the pasture with, or a large commercial property? Hustler offers a 104” cut! You can cover quite a bit of ground cutting 104 inches at a time! We also offer large walk behind or stand on commercial mowers.
Our website is full of information about each of these options, and our sales staff are always happy to answer questions. If you are in the market for a new mower, stop by one of our five locations a take one for a spin!
“U-Haul is an American moving equipment and storage rental company, based in Phoenix, Arizona, that has been in operation since 1945. The company was founded by Leonard Shoen in Ridgefield, Washington, who began it in the garage owned by his wife's family, and expanded it through franchising with gas stations.” Wikipedia
Moving across town, across the state, or across the country, U-Haul is the most widely known option. Offering vehicles that range from a 10’ moving truck to a 26’ moving truck that can hold the contents of a three to four-bedroom home. Cargo and utility trailers are available as well, to pull behind your vehicle or a U-Haul truck.
Not sure what size truck you will need? No worries! Your local U-Haul dealer can suggest a vehicle for you based on the size of your home!
Car hauling options are also available with U-Haul. The most commonly rented equipment is the tow dolly. This is a low-cost option for front wheel drive vehicles. If you are traveling a long distance,the auto transport is the better option. We do suggest calling one of our locations to verify that U-Haul will allow your towing combination before making the drive to one Woodward, Canton or Weatherford.
The most frequent question we are asked is “What will I need to rent a truck?”
The obvious answer is your personal information and your drivers license. We also need to know where you are moving to, any extra miles you anticipate driving, and we will need two references. If you are renting a car towing device, we will need to know all of the details of the vechile you will be towing, as well as towing with.
Although cash is accepted as a form of payment, you will be required to leave a refundable deposit. Debit and credit card users will not require a deposit.
Trucks are rented with a daily and per-mile rate. Cargo trailer, utility trailer, tow dolly, and auto transport are calculated per day and the estimated miles that the equipment will travel.
Need a U-Haul but not local? Give us a call, we can still make the reservation for you! That’s right, we can do it all over the phone! We will give you the details of where to pick up your equipment, it is truly that simple!!
