The lawnmower man

mr_mustafas_verkstad_norra_cypern_magasinetThe Lawnmower man and machine genius Mr. Mustafas workshop is located in Karakum. Coming from the Girne-direction it lies to the right of the main road, opposite the Stroll Inn restaurant & bar.The workshop might look a bit chaotic for us northerners, but Mustafa has full control.

Spring has arrived and it is time to do the lawn. When I get my lawnmower out of the winter storage it won’t start, the metal frame and engine mounts is cracked. What to do now? My lawnmower is of the brand Stiga, which I brought from Sweden. The poor lawnmower should have retired a long time ago, but Mr. Mustafa has served it and changed parts so many times that it has held good until recently.  mr_mustafas_verkstad_norra_cypern_magasinet_north_cyprus_ mr_mustafas_verkstad_norra_cypern_magasinet_north_cyprus

I was thinking that it might be possible to weld it, but what do I know about this stuff? Nothing. Well, in with the lawn mower in the car and off to Mr. Mustafa, where I presented my idea, but he shook his head “Impossible,” he said. But suddenly his face lit up when he had come up with an ingenious solution, and he went to work. The result was that he simply moved my machine to another lawnmower “body” and suddenly, I had got a new lawnmower. Of course he wouldn’t let me away without giving the machine a full service too. It rolls on perfectly now! Mustafa is very good at including fix generators and service them. Yes, the list goes on, he is an expert on most machines. Mr. Mustafa can be contacted on tel: 0533 868 32 65.
