We were cleaning out the garage and we came across this lawn boy silver series lawn mower. Primed it and pulled the string and it started on the first pull. 4.75 hp commercial grade engine. Rear wheel drive self-propelled. 3 in 1 mulcher/bagger/side discharge. Comes with mulch plug, bag and bag hanger. The bag has been repaired and is still in usable condition. adjustable wheel heights for different levels of cutting. Fold-able handle bars for easy transportation and storage. If your interested please email me. Thanks.
$85
the seller is not sure on the hours but i think i may go for it

Never hurts to go check it out and see how it runs. It looks decent from looking at the pictures. Just bid $50 and see what he comes back with. Hope this helps you

I saw one of those on craigslist a while back for 80 I know the 6.5hp go for around 150 on the silver series and the gold series anywhere from 200 to about 350 good luck I think 85 would be fair.

Then i would get it if you need a 21 beats paying 1,500 for a new 21.

Thats the price of a full tank of gas. You tell us if its worth it. If you need it then its worth much more.

I have a slightly older version of that mower, bought it new and I've had it for god knows how many years. It still runs perfectly and cuts great, I say go for it.

I would say stay at that price, those mowers are built way better than the new ones.
Good Luck!

Stay away from these older Lawnboys. People are asking way too much for a mower that's 10-15 years old. You have to mix oil and gas...they say the lawnboy type vs. other oils and they go through a coil a year. They don't bag for crap and the bagger setup is just plain odd. I once owned about 4-5 of them...they were money pits. Look for something with a rear bagger and a honda engine.
