A great lawn mower other than the broken part...



Lawn-Boy/Toro has discontinued the part and I haven't been able to find one online. Three (so far) local welding shops won't touch it. Any ideas?

Model #680523
Wheel Assembly Part #684575

Thanks in advance for any help!

Welcome JOG. I have a machine just like yours. Where in MN are you? That break is a bummer. I thought I just saw one of those one ebay, but white instead of orange. Others may have better leads than that.

I'm in Fridley. I can't complain about the broken wheel, the mower has been great, but could do without the "there's nothing we can do for you" from Lawn-Boy and the dealer I bought the mower from back in '92.

This forum looks great and seems to have a lot of gents that take LB's apart and put them back together just for fun. Maybe I'll get lucky. :)

Thanks for the "welcome".

Sorry to hear see that. The white wheels come up on ebay every so often. Even those are NLA. What kind of metal is that? aluminum or a mix of metals?

Welcome to the Forum BTW.

Mind if i ask what you paid for it in 92? I have the push model version.

I spent a couple hours on the phone yesterday calling online parts stores. All the one I talked to showed the 684575 on their web site, but none of them actually had the part. I don't recall if Partree was one of the place I called - it all blurred together after the first hour. :)

I bought a white 684576 off Ebay that Eric pointed out - hopefully the mower will be good for another 18-years.
