Lawn-Boy Mowers Now Feature Kohler OHV Engine

A Tractor iconAlways known for outstanding value and durability, Lawn-Boy mowers feature a revitalized lineup with the addition of an all-new Kohler overhead valve (OHV) engine.

With 6.5 ft-lb gross torque* that can power through the thickest of lawns, this state-of-the-art engine is designed with commercial-grade durability, yet it incorporates these easy-to-use features:

Lawn Boy mowerThe engine’s Easy-Pull recoil starter greatly reduces friction and the pulling effort required -- making Lawn-Boy mowers even easier to start.

The Smart Choke feature means there’s no need to prime or choke the engine.

An Easy-Fill opening on the gas tank makes refueling effortless. It’s angled instead of vertical and 45 percent larger than a standard opening to greatly reduce fuel spills.

The 20-inch, steel cutting deck on these mowers features a deep dome design that makes it a highly efficient mulcher. Combining this deck design with Lawn-Boy’s tri-cut blade ensures grass clippings virtually disappear, eliminating the need to bag clippings. The deck is narrow enough to mow in tight spaces and is lightweight, as well. In fact, the push model (10603) weighs only 68 lbs. The self-propelled model (10604) weighs just 72 pounds and has rear wheel drive for good traction, even with a full bag. Plus, the variable speed self-propel transmission is maintenance free. The deck is also 3-in-1 ready for mulching, bagging and side-discharge.

Want even more convenience? Lawn-Boy’s TimeOut blade stop system (model 10605) allows the operator to stop the blade without having to restart the engine. These mowers are ideal for anyone who has numerous obstacles in their yard or needs to stop frequently to empty grass clippings.

Lawn-Boy backs its products with a two-year No Worry Warranty that covers the entire mower, a three-year power train warranty on the transmission and engine, as well as a three-year Tru-Start Commitment. If the mower doesn’t start on one or two pulls within its first three years, Lawn-Boy will fix it for free. See your retailer for warranty details.

Lawn-Boy mowers are available this spring, starting around $259 (USD), exclusively at The Home Depot. Learn more at
