Lawn-Boy® Mowers Now Feature Sens-A-Speed®

Lawn-Boy® mowers are known for outstanding value and durability. Each machine in the 2012 lineup provides a great cut at an affordable price, with features that are customized to fit your mowing needs. New for this year is model (10607), featuring the innovative Sens-A-Speed® self-propel system. With Sens-A-Speed. you simply place your hands on the handle and go. Sens-A-Speed automatically adjusts to your walking speed for a more customized and comfortable mowing experience.

Each Lawn-Boy features a 149cc 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 incorporates these easy-to-use features:

  • The 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 mulching mower. 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 improved traction, even with a full bag. Plus, the variable speed self-propel transmission is maintenance free. The deck on each machine is also 3-in-1 ready for mulching, bagging and side-discharge.

Want even more convenience? Lawn-Boy’s TimeOut blade stop system on 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. Starting is even easier with model 10606, which adds an electric start feature. Simply turn the key, and you’re off and mowing.

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.
