    For the last couple of weeks I have been having problems with my Lawn Boy. It is self propeled and when I release the handle to back up the wheel or wheels wont always turn. Does anyone know what causes this or how to fix it. Its a Lawn Boy 6.5 HP 21 In cut and is model 10356. Thanks

    When mine does this I just put 2 squirts of grease in the zeks and it usually frees up.

    try removing the rear wheels and clean out all the debrie from around the gears then spray some wd-40 on the gears and make shure they spin freely. keep the rear grease fittings lubed with grease (every few days give them each 2 squirts)these are great low cost trim mowers. the best value for the $ i have used.
