No, you would not "have" to have the oil added. But I would suggest you did. Just in case you get trigger happy and try to start it as soon as it is charged. I waited until after fully charging to add the gas.

It comes with oil. It is very simple to put the oil in. Do that first, it takes only 2 minutes. This way you won't forget and potentially kill the engine.
Then you can charge it without gasoline. Gas is not required for charging.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 86 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this machine I havent had this lawn mower all that long. I have mowed twice. The first time just the front yard, and the second time I did the front and the back which is hilly and is probably about an acre when added to the front. First off, I love the electric start. This is great for me (a 60 year old lady) because a pull start just kills my shoulder! The machine is easy to put together and the self propel feature is wonderful. It can really move on flat ground! On the hilly backyard it was great to have it be doing most of the work. I havent used the bag as I like to mulch it back into the lawn and it doesn't leave those long hills of mown grass that my riding mower does. I am almost looking forward to mowing again! Oh, and it continues to mow when I pull it backwards, which I have seen that other mowers do not. It is light enough for me to pick up the back wheels so that I can swivel the mower at the end of a row. June 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PRODUCT WORKS AS ADVERTISED After having an accident on a riding lawn mower, I wanted a lawn mower that would start easily and be easy to handle. This one works as advertised and I recommend it to anyone who cannot use a pull starter and wants an easy to operate machine that is also powerful enough for big lawns. June 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to set-up, use, and plenty of power. I mow 4 lawns every week during the summer. This mower has met the toughest challenges, terrain, and has come through with flying colors. Starts EVERY time, no more pulling, and pulling, and pulling. Wow, I would recommend this mower for every homeowner. June 20, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent mower with one major issue Received the mower well boxed. Took about 20 minutes to unpack and assemble the handles. Definitely had to charge battery for 24 hours. Not 20, 21 or anything short of 24 hours. Then the light turned green indicating full charge. After battery was fully charged, oil and gas added mower started with first turn of the key. Excellent. And on first pull with recoil starter. Excellent. Mower has plenty of power and really gets off to a flying start. Be prepared to almost run to keep up, or slowly release the drive bail until you get a comfortable walking speed. Mowers climbs my hill (about 30 degree grade up) without hesitation. Mulching is great. Major issue. As others have stated, the rear wheel adjustments are not easy to adjust. Matter of fact, I had to use a hammer to hammer the third adjustment tab outwards so it would catch on the adjustment lever. This should be something Lawn Boy could correct. Too many write ups about height adjustments issue right out of the box. However, I do recommend this mower for someone looking for a great walk behind self propelled mower, and especially one with electric start. Great lightweight mower. May 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keyed single handed Start. Helpful for lawns with obstacles & for people with handicaps. Out of the box: it's assembled except for two screws on the handles and the battery; Oil is included; It has two manuals, Lawn-Boy lawnmower and Briggs & Stratton engine. Very few downsides, the FULL indicator on the oil dipstick could be labeled better for people who use bifocals and the lawnmower directions could have a section on the battery and battery installation. The battery is a squeeze into the box. Mine required I press down one of the electrical connections not already flat, pictured. After an initial 24 hour charge, the electrical start is working with no further charge for at leat 5 days. It's a lighter self-propelled mower than the one I've been using, This is the first time I finished an entire lawn with no wrist or hand pain. The electric keyed start cuts mowing time and wrist stress. I've a small lawn with many obstacles. With a mild breeze moss falls off trees as I'm mowing. I need to move quickly around newly discovered fire ant hills. The start handle in front is so easy to hold back you can reach down with the same arm to turn the key. Attaching the key to the lawnmower with a brass chain was a great idea, it wasn't mine! There isn't a great deal of power or speed in this self-propelled machine compared to my old mower. The Lawn-Boy slows down on a slope. The wheels in back are low making this unsuitable for rough terrain or ditch mowing. The batteries on my first electric mower drained dead twice, rendering it useless. The Lawn-Boy's electric start mower has a manual pull start option. The company promises to fix the lawnmower free during the warranted period if it doesn't start in 2 pulls. Quick and easy mower to use, because I have allergies, it's what I needed. March 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far, so good! Very nice mower! Day 1 - attach handlebar, add oil, add gas, remove bubble wrap from handlebar, turn key, and experience something awesome. An electric start push mower! Brilliant! Will be charging the battery as described, but had to give it a try out of the box, and it had enough of a charge to start. I guess Toro bought the Lawn Boy folks out. I've used Toro stuff before and found it decent. Nothing "special" in most cases, but it seemed like they made decent stuff. I'm glad they kept the name, and hopefully some of the people employed. The look is still awesome. Love the green color of these mowers. Used a really old 2-cycle one back in the day, and though it had minor issues, it was nearly indestructible, and my dad still has it going to this day. Hoping this one lasts too, seems like a well put together unit. Nice touch to include the bottle of oil - I'm glad it's a standard engine, not 2 cycle. Pull start is also relatively easy. Doesn't seem like too much of a fight to start, unlike some mowers. The lower bar propels it rather fast if held down all the way. I would have to walk very fast to keep up, almost jog. Fortunately, the speed is variable. Hold down about half way to 2/3, and it's perfect. Let go to pull the mower back. Very easy, very intuitive, very smooth operation. I might see if there's a way to tweak the full speed, or to adjust the bar to just pull less when held all the way, but for now, it's good, and I don't want to mess anything up. Not as heavy or clunky as most self propelled ones I've used before. Probably due to having rear wheel drive. Less weight on front, which can make maneuvering weird on other mowers (I've never been a fan of front wheel self propelled mowers). Not so with this one. It maneuvers and handles very much like a "normal" one, though it is obviously still a little heavier, especially when the bag is getting full. Decent handling overall, for what it is. About what I expected. Not at all clunky or difficult. Very nice bag included. Seems like it's well made. A few clippings get out from the top area at first, as the seal seems a little weird. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied. As long as it holds up, all will be good. Engine sounds good, not as loud as some, which is nice. If it does have issues, I just hope there's a local shop that would work on it under warranty. Would rather not mess with it myself, at least for the first few years that it's covered. One final thing - I was sold on the electric start as a really cool feature. If you don't really need this, and need to save a few bucks, the next model in the series is almost exactly the same, a little lighter in weight, and is probably still every bit as nicely made. Looked at a few other mowers, but this one stood out as being the nicest, and at a somewhat reasonable price. Not the cheapest, but certainly not way out there in price like some other mowers. Something about the green paint, and the old "Lawn Boy" name still holds some nostalgic value for me I guess. Here's to hoping it doesn't disappoint in the long term. For now, it's new, shiny, and very nice! Cons - Have to order the rear/side discharge attachment. Lame. I suppose it might be saving a little plastic from ending up in landfills though, as most folks probably thew theirs away. - No idea how support works, and a couple reviews rate it low for having had a bad experience. Hope that a shop is near enough to fix if I need warranty work.. Pros - Electric start. Obviously one of the coolest ideas ever. - Rear wheel drive self propelled. Another great idea. Works well, though can be fast at full speed. - Bag or mulch (or, side discharge out the back with attachment, that you have to register for...). - Interesting blade - designed to give an extra bit of slicing I suppose - It's green. If you don't like that, I guess it's not a pro, but I do, so it's a pro for me. - It's a Lawn Boy. It's a pro for me. The nostalgia factor, and older models being able to hold up over time. Hoping this one does too - Price is very good for the features included. The electric starter adds about $60 compared to the next model, which is a fair cost increase - It mows well. - Easy to handle / maneuver, though models without electric starter are a little lighter. - Still has a pull string for starting. I like having the "old fashioned" method available as a backup. - Engine is a little bit quieter than some, and seems strong enough for general use. Not over or underpowered, "just right" for most uses Note - I also reviewed this elsewhere (similar 'name' on the other website, very similar review... but didn't add pictures there), but wanted to be sure to say that I bought it at Home Depot, am the same person, and had a great experience with the local Home Depot store, and all the fine folks who helped out!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Features Packaging: The mower arrived in a large but manageable box. Everything inside was packed securely and intuitively. Assembly: The mower arrives almost entirely assembled. Unpacking, assembly & adjustments in total will take at most 10-15 minutes. Oil is included (and appreciated!) and the battery for the electric start charges up overnight. The front wheels are adjustable, but unfortunately, the mechanism with which you adjust them is plastic. The adjustment lever was bent on one of my front wheels upon arrival & as such, would not hold the wheel in place. It would at first, but then I’d hit a bump at it would fall back to the lowest setting. I rarely if ever adjust the wheel height, so instead of fooling with a replacement part, I’ve remedied the problem by drilling a hole through the plastic piece and securing it to the mower body with a bolt and lock nut. However, this seems like too important of an element to construct out of plastic – I wish they’d rethink that design aspect a little and perhaps create a spring-loaded metal piece or something. Electric Start: The electric start feature is fantastic. The mower fired right up after 24 hours of charging. I stopped and started it several times with no problems. It also starts off the pull rope, so if you’re battery isn’t charged, you have a backup option. With any luck though, I’ll never start a mower with a pull-rope again! Self-Propelled Feature: The self propelled feature is really nice. It takes a minute or two to get the hang of it, but after that it feels quite natural. I was able to keep up at full speed without issue, though it is a good pace. My grass was still a little damp from a rain 36 hours earlier, and the wheels spun some on inclines, but I’m hoping in the summer months when it’s hotter and dryer, that will be less of an issue. The front wheels will need to be adjusted – if you’re on flat ground & you’ve engaged the self propel feature, and it’s not moving, odds are your front wheels are too low. Rear Discharge: Please note that this a REAR discharge mower. All of my previous mowers have discharged out the side, so this threw me at first (actually, it threw me for several minutes – read on). The bag for grass collection is included and it’s very simple to install & remove. And while I risk sounding like an idiot (again, always had side discharge mowers before!), surely I’m not the ONLY person out there who have/will make this mistake: at first glance in dim garage light, it appears that there is a rectangular hole in the middle of the black plastic portion on the back of the mower, through which one MIGHT assume that the grass would exit the mower and into the bag that fits down over it. WRONG. That is, in fact, a HANDLE, not a hole – you must lift that whole plastic area forward & secure it down with the grass collection bag in order for it to discharge. I’m ashamed to admit I made it two full laps before realizing that there was nothing going into the bag. Once I re-installed the bag properly, it did an excellent job of catching the grass & removing it to empty was simple enough. There is also a side discharge attachment that they will mail to you for free once you register your product. The good news is it’s free, the bad news is it doesn’t come in the box, you have to send off for it. I haven’t received mine yet, but I expect to use it quite a bit as I don’t always bag my grass. It would have been nicer if it had come with the mower, but since they’ll send it for free, I won’t fuss too much. Overall: Great set of features on this mower – electric start and self propelled functions are top notch. The mower fired right up & produced a nice even cut. The rear bagging setup makes it very easy to empty the clippings. The side discharge attachment is available for free for those interested. The only negative is the plastic wheel adjustment. I am certain mine being bent was a fluke, but it still makes me wonder about how they’ll hold up long term. As there are plenty of fairly easy workarounds in the event they do fail, I won’t hesitate to recommend this lawn mower. The pros definitely outweigh the cons. March 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sturdy engine, nice self propel mechanism I'm pretty familiar with Briggs and Stratton based mowers. I haven't had to buy many since they are bulletproof! With my mowers and my family members' mowers, it was always something else like a rusted out deck that ultimately caused replacement. So with that in mind, I am confident this mower will give many years of trouble free service from the engine. The B&S engine starts easy as advertised. I forgot to charge the battery on my first mow day this year, so I had to use the pull cord. Extremely easy! The next week I tried the electric start, and it was fun. This is luxury! I think this is the perfect mower for someone without a lot of strength but still wants to do their own grass. Combine the electric start with the self propel, and you have an extremely easy mower to use. I mow a lot. In the South, I get at least 40 mow days in per year. As mentioned above, I've never had a B&S engine issue, even though they've surpassed 500 hours of usage over a lifetime. With that much mowing, I'm grateful for the self propel. The propel design works well. It is rear wheel drive. You want that. The last time I tried a friend's self propel, it was front wheel drive. That doesn't work too well since you pivot the back on turns. This propel has a clutch/transmission that also allows variable speed. Very important! You pull the bar a little, and it creeps. Go all the way, and it flies. It also can deal with some stalling. Adjustments for the wheels are pretty easy. I have two types of grass, so I change adjustment on the fronts often. The large levers adjust easily. I found the mulching to work pretty well on my first mow of the spring grass. Switching between mulch and bagging is easy. Just flip up the door and attach the bag. See photo. My last mower had a "door plug" that was easily lost. This is a better design. No assembly required. You just have to add oil and move back and secure the handle. See the photo of the mower in the box. I do wish the handle folded easier. There are large knobs to turn and secure the handle. This works fine, however there are some other designs out there that don't require all the knob turning. It isn't a huge deal though. The mower has some heft to it. The battery adds weight too. This isn't a problem if you use the self propel, so no problem there. This mower starts so easily without the electric ignition that I'm seriously thinking of removing it to lighten things up. One last tip: I found the top speed to be slightly too fast for me. You can either relax the control to slow down, or adjust the cable. I backed off the cable adjustment by 1mm to slow it down slightly. There are instructions in the manual for adjusting the propel cable, but they assume you will set it to max. If you want a bit less than max, just back it off very slightly. Every millimeter is very significant for the speed control. Most users would never have to do this. I only mention it if you are interested. March 18, 2013
