Lawn Boy 2 stroke




I'm currently looking for a Toro 726/6000, but in the meantime, I ran across this. As long as the price doesn't get way out there, does anyone have any opinion about this machine for lighter snows? When I bought a commercial(2 stroke) walk behind lawnmower, it came down to a choice between the commercial Toro, Lawn Boy, and Snapper. All three GREAT mowers, but the Toro has a 1/4" cast aluminum deck and a Suzuki 125 2 stroke motor. I'm glad I bought it since it was toward the end of two strokes and it's VERY $$desirable as a used mower now. Plus it's going to outlive me and all of my descendants. Turns out Lawn Boy is owned by Toro, but either way the Lawn Boy 2 stroke mowers have always been VERY good. If anyone of you see anything that a good wrench can fix and/or sees any red flags or anything that will obviously need attention before using, I'd appreciate any info you have. Also, if anyone else here is looking at it, maybe we can keep each other from bidding it out of the price range. It is, after all a "you scratch my back world" and if someone absolutely HAS to have this I'd consider letting it pass. What goes around comes around. Thanks in advance!

There were a lot of Lawn Boys made by Toro that were the same as the Toro version, except for the green color. Others will come along and be able to tell you which Toro this one was. Otherwise, parts are for them are listed on their site and can be found plenty of places.

that is nothing but a toro ccr1000 in lawnboy clothing, 3.5hp. for a single stage I would be much happier with a toro 2450 or 3650, seeing that you plan on doing commercial work pass on the lawnboy for a the more powerful 2450 or 3650

With the assumption that I WILL find a 726/6000 between now and next season, is this lawn boy even a serious consideration for walkways and small areas around offices & apt buildings and around fast food places after our plow and has done the main clearing. Most of the accounts are those kind of places with the odd driveway here and there. This also would be intended for the typical 3-5" normal for NJ. Not the 2+ feet a couple of weeks ago. I don't have ants in the pants for it, but it is REALLY low priced and in an area relatively easy to pick up. I'm really green per snow blowers, so what you guys think is really helpful. Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't complain for $50. What the heck...... although I just saw a Honda HS35 for $25 on my CL! That's free really!




I am deathly allergic to shovels!

The $50.00 price is one strong reason I wondered if I ought to grab it. Plus it's a Lawnboy(always had good luck) and even better, its a 2 stroke. A monkey can work on a 2 stroke......and the glorious fragrance of race gas and bean oil.....umm Also, the phone # on the auction works and the guy seems cool.

For $50, you can hardly go wrong. It should work well for what you said you were looking to use it for.

Got it. I was able to talk to him a few minutes ago and everything sounds legit. It'll be a few weeks or a month before I'll be able to pick it up. It would almost HAVE to be OK since I'll be picking it up in person. I'm one of the local VP Racing fuel dealers, so I'll take a couple of 5's of C-12 with me and my preferred oil and see how it runs. Besides the the incredible scent, race gas, AvGas, or one of the small engine fuels available at stores will completely eliminate any need to ever worry about putting away equipment for long periods of time. I haven't winterized any of my equipment in 15 years and it all starts just like the day I turned it off the previous season. Thanks for all the advice!
