I had a salesman come by work this afternoon. Got to talking about lawnboys, he said he had one for sale. He couldnt remember the model , but knew that it is a commercial series, with mag deck, and a seperate black fuel tank that rode on the rear of the mower, but it has a strange handle assy. It is self propel, similar to the sens-track handles according to him. I couldnt think at all of a model with these features.

He said it had a bent handle design......almost flat when it attached to the mower body, and the handle bends down to propel........
Anyone know what this thing is?What it might be?

I am thinking I want to buy it. He said it needed a bailer cable, he has the cable, just hasnt put it on, something like a late 80's mower is what he remembered, and that it is 2stroke w premix, not oil injection.


Im baffled.

Maybe it is a suburban....

Hey, that was mine (RIP)... Make sure the drive wheels don't lock when you pull the machine back. It could also possibly be a 8481ae.

The difference between the 6211 and the suburban is basically color & the comm has an engine guard. Also, the four square suburban self propel have the "push apart or push assist" style self propel and the comms of those years (four square) had a bail to pull to engage self propel.

The staggered deck suburbans and comms of the same years both had capstan self propel. I'm not sure why they used three different sp styles for the same model year machines...

A 6211 is a commercial model, and Suburbans are commercial grade. Suburbans were made in the 1980's for families who had large yards. That's why there is a large fuel tank on them. Suburbans, IMO, are still good commercial units. Another difference is that a 6211 has an orange tank, and a Suburban a black tank. Also, Suburbans have white wheels, rather than orange. They have different shroud designs, and the Suburban doesn't have the guards. I have a 6430 Suburban and I love those machines! I hope that this helps. I know more about the Suburbans, this was just a quick post of my knowledge on them.

The only difference in the suburban shroud is that it's painted green and that it has a "lawnboy" sticker on it and not a raised up emblem.
