    I am interested in getting a back-up 21 in mower...what do you guys think of this? I have 2 other lawnboys and they work great.

    What are some opinions on Lawnboy in general?

    Are those the ones you get at Home Depot? I was thinking about getting one too...and I cant justify a 1000 commercial 21...cause I dont use it but maybe once a week for MAYBE 15 minutes.

    I almost bought one of these but the Sales person told me that Home Depot wasn't happy with them and they won't carry them in the future. So I went with the Honda. But they sure look nice. You hear good and bad about all of them like Ford vs Chevy etc.

    Some of those sale greaters there don,t know too too much about mowers...That lawn boy that I have has a Honda Engine.
    The Pic In my Avatar was cut by that mower every time this year.

    Home Depot doesn't like them because of the price. Everybody goes for the $150.00 MTD's.
    I have one and my only complaint is the fact that the traction lever is plastic and will catch on stuff, on the trailer, and break off. After I figured out how to safeguard against that, it works pretty well. I really like the personal pace concept.
