Lawn-Boy mowers are a great choice for people who don't have the budget or the need for a larger riding mower or tractor. All Lawn-Boy mowers are walk-behind models, but they still come in a wide variety of styles. Lawn-Boy mowers are priced anywhere from $200 to $600, so there is a Lawn-Boy out there to fit any budget.

Lawn-Boy Mowers: Models and Features

Choosing a Lawn-Boy mower is as simple as deciding on a few different types of features. Your first decision relates to the machine's drive system: do you want a self-propelled mower or one that you push yourself? Self-propelled Lawn-Boy mowers are available in two different styles: variable speed and easy stride. Easy stride machines adjust their speed automatically to your walking speed.

The next choice is between several different engine sizes. Lawn-Boy mowers are available with DuraForce 2-Cycle engines, Tecumseh 4-Cycle engines, or powerful Honda OHV/OHC engines. Which engine you choose depends on both the size of your lawn and the thickness of your grass. If you're often cutting heavy wet grass, it's a good idea to go with a more powerful machine.

There are several other factors to consider when picking a Lawn-Boy mower. What deck material you would prefer (steel and aluminum are available)? Do you want or need an optional rear bag (only some models support this option)? Finally, what starting method do you prefer? Answering each of these questions will leave you with one or two models to choose from.
