They will ship to canada. It will most definitely be in your price range.

You will need to ask them what the shipping cost to Canada is. I guess Canadian shipping would cost a lot though. There's about always 1 or 2 two cycle Lawnboys on ebay, and a lot of times they will ship it.

I'm going to look for one ebay! lol

I just had to borrow one of the old 2-cycles; it's noisy, but lighter than my alot lighter than the John Deere 14ST and seems to have almost as much power; granted the mulching kit was not installed, so it didn't look too great, leaving some grass clippings, but other than that it did excellent for such an old machine. My stupid Troy-built is broken again, and I think I need to replace it, since the dealer said ignition coil was $60, and front wheel drive is not worth putting that much money into ($60 plus labor). I'd rather have an old John Deere 14SB or even an older 2-cycle Lawn boy than that newer Troy Built mower, or most of the stuff that I could buy new for $400; in my opinion they are still better mowers. Snappers weren't too bad either, but the 2-cycle Lawn Boy may still win, because of the light weight, especially if you are using it as a primary mower. I would definitely get a 36" WB if I could find it for $400! That sounds like a great deal, if it's running. The dealer told me since the price of steel went up even the belt drive are starting at $2800

Dosnt matter what the sticker on the deck says ( lawn boy/craftsman/ etc), just get something with a tecumseh engine on it, will run trouble free, and start right up every time. They use more fuel than the briggs engines, but more power, and much less trouble.

I've had a lot more trouble with Tecumseh carbs than Briggs carbs. Since I had a Kawi carb apart and saw what quaility looks like, I'm not crazy about Tec or Briggs.

I agree, would go for Kawi or Honda, but those engines are usually found on the high end mowers, i thought we were going for the poverty package here
