JDM WV Lawn-Boy Model Spreadsheet

Just for S&G's, here's a fairly condensed version in MS Excel, albeit a bit ugly. It's one landscape page wide (8 pt Arial font) by about 34 pages long.

Attachment 77542

Short-hand references abound, so if someone likes full narratives, that isn't it... the goal was condensed.
  • There's a legend on the top of the first page for most of the column abbreviations.
  • The "Product Name" and "Product Series" columns have been condensed into one "Product Type", with any redundant information from other columns (size, deck type, etc.) eliminated. Some is calculated and stuffed. A few got fixed (ex: Described as an "M-Series" but has an "F" engine? I don't think so...) This is just an "informative", non-gospel column as L-B varied the consistency of what it put in those fields across the years.
  • I noticed that within the same model code, but across different years, the same fields are not always filled in. This is the same as on L-B's site. Sometimes, one has to look at an earlier year for a model to get the specs. Especially with the 2010's.
  • If you want to double-check anything, all of the data comes from the Lawn-Boy Support page, enter a model #, click [Search], pick a year/serial # range if offered, click [Product Details], then click the little [print] icon; the data in the pop-up ("printer-friendly" version) is what was captured (same as for the original .csv file).
  • Didn't get around to writing a custom sort function to keep bases model numbers together with those with alpha suffixes.
  • Column auto-filter is already turned on. Rows heights set to auto as some near the end had a plethora of codes in engine type, etc.
  • Came across a few L-B published lists that are either similar, or with even more options info. However, they were usually limited to, say, 195x-1988 or something. I'm still thinking Toro/L-B either has, or can quickly generate, an even better and more detailed version of what we've done but across all model years (maybe even pre-1956)
  • From an earlier post, I'm now wondering about Canadian models. Are any in there (spreadsheet)? If there is Canadian Warranty info (on the L-B website), does that really mean anything related to its origins?

If you can't get your Adobe reader to work, download Foxit PDF reader, it's a whole lot less of a system hog and works just like Adobe

I tried that file mentioned and it says someone was using it at the time and could not be opened or the option was changing the name and opening it. It finally did open to a spreadsheet but there was nothing on it. Anyway, could be a problem with the file. At any rate the Foxit reader still does the same as Adobe. Regardless which one you use, I don't think there is anything wrong with them.

Re: JDM WV Lawn-Boy Model Spreadsheet

Worked for me, both links.

I clicked on the LBmowers xls.zip link. It downloaded to my computer. I clicked on the file, it was a zip file. I clicked on "open" and it opened up in my Exel program.

If you don't have Exel, you could download to your computer, then go to Google documents and upload to their spreadsheet program. That might work fine.

This may or may not work. I downloaded file, opened it, saved it, and uploaded to Google Documents. Click Here.

Somebody try the link and see if it works.
