    I will prefer repairing the old one because you known how to deal with the older one instead of learning the new one. So repairing is the best option in my point of view.

    It depends where you live. I suspect that living in Pakistan, it is more cost effective to repair and maintain old power equipment like small gas lawn mowers than to buy new replacements. Here in the USA where the cost of shop labor is astronomical and new items are relatively cheap, it is usually more sensible to replace a small item that costs only a few hundred dollars than to have it repaired. Few people in the USA have the knowledge or tools to do more than the most basic maintenance on their OPEs, and most of the cost in repair shops is for labor.

    I think you should repair the older model or you can also compare the specification of both i.e. the older one or the new one and see whats the difference.
