OK, I can't take it any longer. I want one of the Lawn Boy's...can't find any listed in Michigan.

so

Hokiefyd, UncleLee, Mike72, please, one of you, sell yours or find me one as nice as yours.

edit= I found a bunch of 4 cycle LB, and two 2 cycle that look ok but not as nice as the ones posted here. I'm going to look at both of them, one is $ 50 and one $ 100.

Unless the 4 strokes are real old....well they are just imitation lawnboys made by toro..I have the new one with the kohler engine. Good by todays standards, but falls far short of a real lawnboy. Think when I see my decal guy next time I am going to have some pink Lawngirl decals made for it and paint it pink, cause it don't deserve lawnboy green

I like 4-strokers as much as 2-strokers. This is a 1999 model 10330 that originally came with a Tecumseh engine. I've swapped it to a Honda GCV160. Very recently (just a few weeks ago), I took the Honda back off to install a Tecumseh TVS120 from a late '80s Craftsman (remember the old Craftsman Eager-1s?).

With the Honda:



I'll post a picture of it with the refreshed Tecumseh perhaps this weekend. The Tecumsehs are lighter even than an F engine...even with the self-propelled equipment, it's a VERY light weight and maneuverable mower.
