Best way to kill a lawnmower motor without looking suspicious

My nextdoor neighbor likes to mow his lawn either very early or very late in the day. This really pisses me off especially when he does it early in the morning. I can sabotage his mower when he is at work during the day but how?

Will sugar in the gas tank be enough to ruin the motor and will it leave no evidence behind?

If so, sneak over there, pull the cord out a little way, and fray it with a knife. When he yanks on it the cord will break.

you could water down the gas a lot, hell start it and boom, hell have to take it in, giving you some time, then a few months or weeks later do it again, he will just think hes getting bad gas, so atleast toy with him a little, haha

If it wasn't for the fact that they could do some major damage, a few strategically placed rocks could do some damage. Chop up a set of blades quicker than you can say Lawn Boy.

Not to rain on your parade or anything, but have you ever considered just politely asking him not to mow so early in the morning?

If you have, and he's just being a dick about it, then the best thing I can think of is to determine whether the mower runs on straight gas or an oil/gas mix, then empty the tank and fill it with the opposite.

If the mower doesn't explicitly specify whether it requires straight gas or a mixture, then check if it tells you what kind of engine it uses. Two-cycle engines use oil/gas mix, four-cycle engines use straight gas (and usually have a separate spout to add oil).

Putting the wrong type of gas into the mower should screw it up either way.

Depending on where you live, there might be bylaw restrictions on what time he can mow the lawn (most cities state 7am - 10pm as being acceptable). Next time he does it, give them a call. Either that or sneak over every morning and spray a salt water solution on the lawnmower. In three to four years, the whole thing will be rusted out and he'll totally have to replace it!

You should be able to do some damage by flooding the oil, just keep pressing the little priming rubber thingy that should do it. You are really only supposed to do it 3x but if you go nuts on it you should be able to flood the engine. Works for the customers at my work you return lawnmowers everyday for a number of stupid reasons.

Plus there is no real evidence, other than your finger-print.

You could put bleach in the gas tank, which would also work. The bleach will corrode the inside of the tank causes the fuel system to pump pieces of rust into the engine. But if you want it to get the engine right away, but the bleach inside the oil tank. The oil and bleach mixture burns much hotter than regular oil, and the engine will likely seize within minutes. Btw, sugar in the gas tank doesn't really do anything. It doesn't caramelize, that's just a myth.

I take no responsibility for what happens, but bleach is your winner.

I have a landscaping company, you think his mower is loud wait until he has to pay someone like me to do it, although, we wouldn't do it in a residential area before 8:00 a.m.

Pouring bleach or rock salt in his yard will kill his grass for the season.

Go to a bulk grocery store and get a 40kg bag of salt. Empty it equally on his lawn at night and water it. Or get a tank of gas and burn his lawn. If price is an issue, you should go with the 40kg salt bag. Gas is a rip off.

Lots of salt and then water. It would be impossible to figure out what happened.

Oh the night that Patty Murphy died, is a night I'll never forget
Some of the boys got a loaded drunk, and they ain't got sober yet;
As long as a bottle was passed around every man was feelin' gay
O'Leary came with the bagpipes, some music for to play
Chorus:
That's how they showed their respect for Patty Murphy
That's how they showed their honour and their pride;
They said it was a silly shame and they winked at one another
And every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died

As Mrs. Murphy sat in the corner pouring out her grief
Kelly and his gang came tearing down the street
They went into an empty room and a bottle of whiskey stole
They put the bottle with the corpse to keep that whiskey cold

Chorus

About two o'clock in the morning after emptying the jug
Doyle rolls up the ice box lid to see poor Patty's mug
We fixed the clock so Mrs. Murphy couldn't tell the time
And at a quarter after two we argued it was nine

Chorus

They stopped the hearse on George Street outside Sundance Saloon
They all went in at half past eight and staggered out at noon
They went up to the graveyard, so holy and sublime
Found out when we got there, they'd left the corpse behind!

Chorus

Oh the night that Patty Murphy died, is a night I'll never forget
Some of the boys got a little drunk and they ain't been sober yet;
As long as a bottle was passed around every man was feelin' gay

Well every drink in the place was full the night Pat Murphy died!

Hmm, I guess I'm a bit late coming here with a suggestion. Personally I loved the land mind suggestion, though that may be a bit difficult to aquire and pull off.

However, putting military ordinance aside, your standard industrial grade explosives can do the trick. All you really need is a blasting cap. The explosive end is shaped kind of like a pen, so just cut the wire off, and stick it in the ground a bit below the grassline so its hidden. Those things will explode upon heavy contact, with enough force to blow off your hand, so should be perfect for taking care of the underside of a lawnmower ;)
