A buddy of mine is moving and has 2 lawn boys. He says one has some difficulty starting and the other hasn't started in awhile. That doesn't bother me. I know Lawn Boy is renowned as a top notch push mower. I was thinking since he was just going to give it to me and we don't have any push mowers in our fleet, I could get the GXV 5 HP Honda mower engine from Northern Tool for 389. Anyone see any issues arising. I know once before I used a lawn boy and it was very very light, is the engine weight "the reason for the pleasin'" with the lawn boy or is it the quality of cut?
