Picked this up off of a fellow member here. Got it yesterday and mowed with it. Runs great. Still love the power a DF produces. In the thickest part of my yard it just hummed right on through as if to say this is a piece of cake....what else you got. HUH????

Anyway here are the pics. I plan to completely refinish this one since, it is sort of a rare one.

Nice, good to see it went to a person who can take care of it, and best of all a person on this forum.

Those are great mowers. I still haven't used mine since I bought it (last November). I should do that. Looks good!

Thats one of my favorite mowers. I love the colored shroud. I think the keystart is great. But those are heavy monsters. I have to many narrow hills, and sidewalks for one of these big guys.

Looks great! Always nice to see another clean and rare LB. I just picked up a 10323 yesterday. I can't get enough of these things.

Was that the $80 one in Marshfield? I wasn't going after it, but I saw it.

Man that is a great mower. I was thrilled to see it go to someone who appreciates it. I can't wait to see it when you get through with it. I found a place you can get a new decal up on the handle too where it's worn from the keychain. I really think that was the nicest mower I ever mowed with, even though others may disagree. I was shocked how smooth the lawn was afterward and you're right, the deep spots didn't even faze it a bit.

You got a good one there!:thThumbsU

:congrats: They are a great mower, but a bit heavy. I do like the key start - although I will be upset when I have to purchase a new battery. I will use my pushers much more than the 10547.

Thanks for the comments. This is a great mower and not that heavy to me. Mow with a Snapper commercial and this thing doesn't weigh anything in comparison. :sidelaugh It did leave a nice smooth cut. Reminds me of my 10525 I sold a couple of years back. Thanks 2201 for working with me on it. I will take pictures of the rebuild when that takes place.

No sir, it was not.
It was in the Milwaukee area. I just pressure washed it today and looks like new.

I'm probably showing my ignorance here since I don't get into the DF mowers much, but what is rare about this mower? The electric start?

I have one that needs a battery. Bid on a battery and charger yesterday but did not win. The batteries certainly hold their value.

This is one of my favorites. It was the first DF LB mowers I used. Now I own 5 of them.

As far as ebay prices go, you STOLE that one. That's part of the reason I'm just parting out all my DF mowers that need more than minor work. It's just Not worth the effort FRANKENSTEINING them together when you get more in parts.
