Ok here is my first lawn boy. It has the staggered deck, commercial wheels, and a BBC! Model 6262. I put new fuel lines and an inline filter. I am in the prosses of tear down and re-paint. More pictures to follow.

Well, fellas, we got us another!

If every one of us gave away 1 Lawnboy to a poor, unsuspecting soul, this section of the forum would be bulging at the seams!

I had one of those when I had my rental business that a customer left behind because it needed too much work. Over a winter I got it running, and I must say, what a nice machine it was. Kept it to cut the "back 40" around the property. Sometimes I wonder if I should have held on to it, but at least it went for $200 when I sold it.

Where do you get lawn boy paint at? I painted the engine shroud a real dark green (Matches the green better than the black did) Like used on Chevy blazers like this one.

others can verify, but i believe the paint is called grabber green, you can get it at autoparts stores. Do a search for lawn boy green and it should turn up something for ya!!

way to keep these true mowers alive!!!

Correct, Grabber Green, it's available from rustoleum and I think Duplicolor, but we don't have it around here. That's the deck color, for that model.

I suppose the purists would not change any colors, like painting the engine shroud something other than what it should be. But it's your mower... Decal looks in good shape, from what I can tell by the pic. I hope you taped it off and saved it?

On a side note, there's a guy with that has that exact engine for sale on Ebay, new in the box old stock. Think he was asking like $600 for one. haha.

Yep, I tried to save all the stickers, but some are un-saveable.

Update: This is what it looks like after painting the engine shroud. Looks pretty nice. Now I have to paint the deck.
