Re: Lawn Boy Push mower Questions
Hi! Not sure of the model without better pictures or more info but appears to have a bail so post 1983 year. Seems to be a push rather than self propelled as well but hard to tell. You could easily part this out and make back well more than the $25.00 investment but it would depend what you are interested in it for. If you are looking for a mower for yourself or one to flip then it would only be worth the money if the motor has good compression and is not seized. I paid $125.00 for a 1996 push Lawnboy, one owner and very clean, but had to put no money into it. On the other hand I have purchased two different mid 70's D series Lawnboys at estate and yard sales for $25.00 each. One did not start and the other did start but ran poorly. Didn't take much money to make either of them good running, usable mowers. Also make sure there is no damage to the deck such as missing pieces, cracks, etc. Surface rust is easily cleaned off the handles with as SOS pad or similar method if it is not too bad. Make sure wheels are not worn through or excessively loose. Also make sure bail cable is not frozen as well as the throttle cable. Again, pretty hard to go wrong for $25.00 but it depends what you expect to get for that. Hope this is helpful. Bill
