Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BIGLOVE101 It fits my needs.
I purchased the 10730 model 8-26-2016. I set out to cut my lawn and and 2 of my neighbors, we live in row homes. but we have front and back lawns. To my surprise this Lawn Boy lawn mower was extremely easy to set up. I set out to cut at 1130a I was cutting by 12p. The mower started on the first pull!
All 3 of the lawns I had to cut were over 12in high. I adjusted the height of the lawn mower and plowed right through it, I had to tilt and jocky the mower accordingly. It cut off a couple of times, only because the grass was still wet and very heavy, thanks morning Dew. lol.. I ran it hard for about 45 minutes. Hardly any fuel was used. So far I'm thoroughly impressed with the Lawn Boy 10730 with the Kohler 6.5, 149cc engine.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TJ2 Worst grass collection design ever!
Yes the lawn mower starts right up almost all the time. It says that right on the top for you to see. But I needed a mower that collects the grass this thing has the worst design in capturing the grass- after you mow about 6 feet of your lawn no matter the length or height adjustment the door to the bag gets clogged with clippings and the mower turns into a mulching GRASS PUKING MACHINE. Literally I spend more time picking up piles and cleaning the side walk/drive way than mowing. Wife hates to mow due to the mess- she use to mow all the time. My neighbors get a kick out of watching the event and take note not to buy this green mess of a mower. Tried every trick n advice from this manufacture - same result I am done with this after 1.5 years. Wasted my money! Going to buy a different brand this spring. I have some good picks of the aftermath mess this thing creates.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KansasCity DO NOT BUY
DO NOT BUY - I typically do not review products but this product is so bad I had to. I thought Lawn-Boy stood for quality but this product is bad. Cheap plastic and poor design is the problem. The gas cap leaks gasoline, air filter cover will not stay on, height mechanism broke within first year of machine purchase. Warranty is a hassle to deal with and gave up. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT BUY.

Wheel adjustment slips out of selected height location.
Have to use another position ,which is either to low or to high .
Does anybody know if the peg adjustment can be repaired ,some way.?
Mower does not collect loose leaves but blows them to another location.
The old Lawn Boys were light ,this dog is very heavy and hard to maneuver when you have a lot of trees to mow around.
My father-in-aw would roll over In his grave if he had to work on this mower.(he repaired mowers)
Gas cover is extremely hard to open and close .You have to have a strong hands to do it. .
Very dis-appointed in this mower.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by EW Frustrating rear height adjustment
This mower cuts pretty well, even when the grass is pretty long. Engine starts up easily every time. However, towards the end of the first season of mowing, I noticed that the rear height adjuster would keep slipping off of the pins and suddenly there would be a dip cut into the lawn. Ever since then I have to keep reaching down and push it into place every few minutes or so as I mow, or I have to settle for a different height than what I prefer. Very annoyed by this from a relatively well respected manufacturer.

Lawn-Boy used to stand for quality. Unfortunately this is no longer the case. Cheap plastic abounds... gas cap and carb cover both broke within first year of machine purchase. Then pull cord went. Warranty is a hassle to deal with and time consuming. I had my previous 2 stroke for over 25 years and maybe had it in shop 5 times. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PhishPhan24 Good all around mower
I wanted a solid push mower for small areas and trimming (I have a Toro rider for the large sections of the lawn). Had a Troy Built (Briggs and Stratton engine) that after 2 years had engine problems and while it was in the shop, I opted for this Lawn Boy. I like the tri-cut blade, does a stellar job mulching. Simple assembly and prep - had it running in ten minutes after pulling the box out of the car. We've had it a month now, no issues. It's not Lawn Boy I remember from my youth (mixing gas with oil and unique seafoam green color), obviously someone purchased the name, but it runs and cuts fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deb Great little miwer
My first delivery via UPS was refused for oil/ carton damage, but the sweet little lawn mower I picked up,at Home Depot is great. Being easy to start, tough on rough terrain, lightweight, and easy to maneuver are just a few of the reasons I am very happy with my mower. The staff at Hime Depot were friendly, knowledgeable, and service oriented . From a former school teacher you get an A+.
