Lawn Boy Push Mower ??

i saw this push mower last night on sale for $160.00 at The Home Depot that i work at. Only reason its on sale is because it was the floor model & they are trying to get rid of them to make room for winter innovatory. I don't use a push mower that often only on a few yards i mow. I don't really see paying 1,000 for a 21" push mower that will not get used to much. i know a lot of LCO use residential push mowers. My Craftsman push mower that was at least 12 years old just died and i need something ASAP. Let me know what you think?

Granted I'm a homeowner, but I borrowed that same mower from my friend for a few week, it cuts very well for what it is. It mulched my thick Bermuda better than the 400 dollar Honda I returned.

That's the push mower I have and I love it. It very rarely gets used but when it does it performs very well.

these are great push mowers and at that price go get it I run one on all my trucks yes there are better ones but i cant see spending too much that my guys distroy in two years. Ive tried they fall off truck they throw them over fences they just beat the crap out of them but these seem to hold up.

Buy it! I only use my push mower about 1 hour a week to trim out a few small spaces my Dixie can't get to. My residential LB is 6 years old and runs like brand new. My last one lasted 15 years.

Check Craigslist if you want to save a few bucks used but otherwise I would say for light use you would be doing fine with 160. Its a 4 cycle so if you are doing lots of steep inclines you may have an oiling issue.

I am going to look around a little more at other push mowers but the $160.00 for a 300 mower sounds pretty good!
