Purchased approximately 27-8 months ago, so just out of warranty. As others mention, rear adjustment pegs falling off, had to hard-bolt the lever. Two days ago, lever sheared in the middle, so mower dropped right to the ground. Had to finish lawn holding rear end up myself. (This did not go well of course)
Self propel has been weak from day one and requires that you provide at least 50% of the forward thrust yourself.
I take good care of equipment like this, so it's well-maintained. Just not the LawnBoy quality I remember.
Part on order for rear height adjustment, I pay for it of course since out of warranty. Gonna limp this mower through the rest of the season and it's outta here. Disposable basically.

Could not change blade because you need torque wrench.
To change the oil you have to empty through dip stick opening.
Could not change the spark plug.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bob DO NOT BUY
The wheel adjustment on all wheels are metal studs inserted into plastic. The metal studs fall out very quickly as the plastic gives way and then you have no adjustment, only the lowest setting. Buy a mower that has all metal for the height adjustment. In addition, the self-propelled option also quit about the same time. This product is clearly designed to break down quickly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clarence Great Mower for the Price
Mower so far after 1 week is worth the price. Hope it lasts as long as my last Stanley Mower which was 10 years.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PoorMower Worst Mower. Not the Lawnboy of Yesteryear
I wanted a quality lightweight mulching mower. Having used Lawnboy mowers in the past I thought this mower would be great - major mistake! The rear wheel adjustment pegs began bending and then breaking off within 2 months. The rear wheel drive - as mentioned by other reviewers - slipd ( left wheel currently doesn't engage making the mower want to pull right with the little assistance it gives. OR the wheels dont disengage if you want to push it even when mowere is off!! If not for these issues the mower would be great LOL! It does mulch good. DO NOT BUY! Dont let the name fiool you - This is not the same quality as your father's lawnboy.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ML Its good for the price
The best thing about this mower is that it is self propelled. The worst thing about it is that it has no power. I have a good size lawn and nothing frustrates me more than having to keep pulling the starter every few feet because the grass was either too thick or got clogged around the blade. I cannot recommend this mower due to the lack of power

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nick Quality purchase
The only issue is that when in tall grass you have to go slower or raise the deck and make multiple passes in order to collect all the grass in the bagger. (otherwise you will leave trails of grass behind) For the price and my long history of using Lawn Boy mowers since I was a kid, this mower seemed to be the same quality as I remember, and I was a little skeptical at first on buying one.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fishinfool Best lawnmower purchase ever
This lawnmower is "THE" best mower we have ever purchased. It's inexpensive, lightweight, easy to maneuver, the mulching feature is unbelievable, if we use the bag, it holds massive amounts of grass and it uses hardly any gas.
I would absolutely recommend this mower.....A+++++++ product
