  1. Found a '70 Lawn-Boy 5269 this weekend!

    Walk Behind Mowers
    Greetings everyone! Its been quite a long time since I came across a vintage Lawn Boy at an estate sale. So this weekend I came across a 1970 model 5269. The original owner took nice care of it for the most part. No cracks in the deck and the shround decals are not all scarfed up either...
  2. What modle Lawnboy is at the very top of your wish list, and why?

    Walk Behind Mowers
    Greetings gents, I'd say my top pick would be any of the 1968 models with upper belt drive self propelled, models 8226, 8227 or 8227E. They've been on my want list for quite some time. An 8226 just ended last month on ebay and I was asleep at the switch! If anyone knows of one, or has one...
  3. Best lawnboy model of all time

    Walk Behind Mowers
    I'm agreeing with lawnboy77. The D-400 brick tops are the winners. They used quality materials, and servicing if need be was/is easy. That engine on a cast magnesium or aluminum deck and you are unstoppable... You have a top notch product when you can offer no frills simplicity and make it a...

    Walk Behind Mowers
    Thanks guys. Might have to let some of these go though, like I said, they're piling up on me and thats not a good thing, LOL!
  5. Picked up a couple new Lawn-Boys today

    Walk Behind Mowers
    I went to a couple estate sales today. I ran across yet another upper belt drive 8229F... Another mower from a small city lot in Chicago so it survived. This must have been the most popular of the upper belt drive models. I don't seem to find anything other than 8229F's. Also found a 1984...

    Walk Behind Mowers
    Wow, thats the very first automower! Excellent find indeed. Just remember: It's only original once...
  7. Found a 1980 Lawn-Boy "Mulch-r-Catch"

    Walk Behind Mowers
    I came across one of these mulch-r-catch Lawn Boys at an estate sale today. I think this was the last model to ever use the green triangle wheels. I was able to talk to the original owner who is 76 now. He bought it brand new in 1980 from Frank's Lawnmower sales & service in Niles. He told...
  8. Lawn Boy manufacturing plants

    Walk Behind Mowers
    Im curious if anyone happens to have any photos of Lawn Boy mowers in production at the plant in Galesburg, IL. I looked all over the internet and I can't even find a single photo of what the plant looked like on the outside and have no idea if the building even exists today. I never knew the...
  9. Found a couple vintage Lawn-Boy's today!

    Walk Behind Mowers
    Sorry for bringing up an old thread but this has really got me thinking. That 5269 pictured in the first post that I bought at the estate sale 4 years ago was sold off by me sometime probably about 3 years ago or so. At the time I had way too much and started selling off some of my extras. I...
  10. Unusual Sunbeam electric reel mower from 1958

    Walk Behind Mowers
    I found this mower at an estate sale in town here a few months back. I never saw anything like it before. It's a Sunbeam electric reel mower, model E-800 from 1958. One thing I need to point out, the man who lived at the home was a retired engineer who worked for Sunbeam as Sunbeam was based...
  11. Various Lawn-Boy Mechanics Service Manuals

    Walk Behind Mowers
    Twocycle, that one you have is from '68. The last two digits in the catalog number are the year. Thats a nice manual, I don't have that one but hope to find one with the aide of eBay soon. I also need to find a V manual. I also have the E engine one which seems pretty scarce even though the...

  13. Various Lawn-Boy Mechanics Service Manuals

    Walk Behind Mowers
    Various Lawn-Boy Mechanic's Handbooks... As a fellow Lawn Boy collector, I always enjoyed these Lawn Boy mechanics handbooks as part of the mower collection. I learned a lot from these manuals over the years. Its great that Lawn Boy made such a detailed manual that was aimed at both the...
  14. The Latest Find: Lawn-Boy 8229F!

    Walk Behind Mowers
    Its about time I get back into Lawn Boy mode again! I think it took a sudden surprise of a find to get me back in the game. Last weekend I went to an estate sale in Chicago and sitting in the garage I found one of my favorite models; An upper belt drive self propelled Lawn Boy! I've always...
  15. Lawn-Boy replacement wheels/tires

    Walk Behind Mowers
    I deleted my original post under "Lawn-Boy Triangle Wheels" and realized I shouldn't have acted so fast as I'm starting to doubt myself as I thought I answered my own question... We all know of Lawnboys "Triangle" wheels found on the mowers from 1968-early 90's. I have been out of touch with...
  16. The Lawn-Boy "Triangle" wheels

    Walk Behind Mowers
    Thanks for the nice comments guys. Nice to come back in and say hi to everyone! As for my original post, I deleted it as I believe I answered my own question. I probably should have left it alone as to not screw things up though...:rolleyes:
  17. Lawn Boy 10324 may need a short block...

    Walk Behind Mowers
    Thanks guy. I need to tear this thing down in the very near future. Dad has been using my 8229F in the interim, which he loves so it hasn't been too important to get his 10324 up and running right away... I'll let you know what I find out.
  18. Lawn Boy 10324 may need a short block...

    Walk Behind Mowers
    My dad bought a LB 10324 back in 2001 from Home Depot, I was there to basically persuade dad into getting that mower when he was shopping for a new machine. Its been a great mower and always well maintained. Just the other day, I got a phone call from him telling me that something let loose in...

  20. LB oil in the metal cans is history?

    Walk Behind Mowers
    I ran my '74 8232 with the 20+ year old "teal" LB oil mix yesterday. It has a more noticable somewhat sweeter smell to it than the generation II. I remember it well. I did go to an estate sale last weekend and found some old TORO 2 cycle oil in the red cans. I used to see this stuff...
