Hello all,

As I approach my 40th birthday this year I find myself reflecting more on my childhood. One memory I cannot shake is mowing my neighbor's lawn with his 2-cycle Lawnboy. I can actually remember the smell of the fresh cut grass mixed with the oil/gas exhaust and it makes me smile. So, in an effort to recapture my youth I am on the prowl. Craigslist seems to be a pretty good source for these golden machines. There are a few to consider but I have been out of the Lawnboy loop for a while so I don't know which would be the best find. Here we go:

S21BSR - http://kansascity.craigslist.org/grd/1858413567.html

10515 - http://kansascity.craigslist.org/grd/1825488938.html

8157 (Lawnboy Supreme) - http://kansascity.craigslist.org/grd/1856111329.html

And just for fun!? - http://kansascity.craigslist.org/grd/1875417903.html

Your thoughts?????

The 10515 if you want the best of all the listed. Its the best all around lawnboy, light, powerful and easy to use with the features you want in a mower IMO.

Paola huh? Cool

The last one to capture your youth...Well actually that might be capturing your dads youth.
10515 for best using mower, and 20 for the bagger is a bargain too.

Thank you for the recommendation gang. I will take a look at it later today. Are there any specific things I should look at to be sure it has been well taken care of?

I really like that S21 myself. That's what I had as a kid. Either one of those or an L21, I can't remember. I also have an 8157 and really enjoy that mower. It's different than most Lawn-Boys, so it has an endearing quality to it. I think you'd like it, but the cables are not cheap, and I see that it needs a SP cable.

Just getting back into it, I'd look at either the S21 or the 10515.

Me? I'd buy all 4... haha. The Supreme is just a cool machine, though not really practicle. Nice mower, but they are a bit cumbersome. I have the same one in the "suburban" model. Still waiting on parts to repair it though.

the 10515 is the one I'd get if I had to pick just one. Spend the extra whole $20 and get the catcher. You can't get them that cheap anywhere else!

Definately the 10515. The reliable, tough, and easy to work on F engine, aluminum deck, and 3 speed self propelled make it the best choice. And as FordTech said, an extra $20 for the bagger is a bargain. Good luck!:fing32:
