A buddy of mine wants this out of his garage and knows I like to collect older OPE. I can't pick it up for a few days. Below is a link to two pictures he sent me. Any idea what model it is? Anything I should look for? He said it always starts first pull...

The bagger is missing and I wouldn't run it without that on.
OR there is a plate that covers that opening in the deck.
Looks like a professional grade (red tank).
Should be a model and number plate on the deck somewhere.


There's no such thing as:
Too big of a battery,
Too large of a gas tank,
or too loud of a horn,
or too bright headlights.

You are lucky. I'd easily pay a few hundred for a 2 stroke Lawn Boy like that.

I think the oversized red gas tank was on Commercial ones.
Pretty simple. Run forever.
The older ones like that were really powerful. The newer ones aren't nearly as wicked.
I love my Lawnboys.

My FIL had one and loved it. I remember the cool exhaust sound.

I happen to collect and restore vintage Lawn Boy 2 strokes. That looks to be a mid 80s. Make sure to run
In on 32:1 oil / gas mix. It looks identical minus the self-propelling to a model 8461. I only collect self propelled models. Fully restored in mint condition a collector would pay $500-700 for it. The orange tank signifies a commercial model.

Buy it!!!

I think ole Dave Rock of Davidsfarm fame had a bunch of them lying around, cited the lack of demand for two stroke green Lawn Boys. You could try contacting him if he's out of jail.

He was nuts, but I did find most of his videos somewhat educational, if not very entertaining

It looks to need the bagger and the steel hanger. A plug to run the shoot should be pretty easy to find though.

I have a non commercial (no tank, steel orange wheels or engine guard) ~ 1991 version of that. The F series engine is a monster.

I live about 3 hours from where his farm was. Always wondered about him and the things he did there. I did see the pile of lawnboys he had in one video. A bunch of brick tops and other assorted models.
