Love the key start and self-propelled.
It was ready to go right out of the box after putting in the oil that comes with it and gas. I am a 60 yr. old female so like not having to pull my shoulder out on a cord and getting as assist from the self-propelled makes it a great mower for me. The key start was just what I needed. Performance was great, Now I don't dread mowing.

Very good, no regrets
Could use a little better traction. Where I live I have St.Augustine grass and it is usually damp even after 2-3 days of no rain. (It rains a lot in Louisiana)

Very good lawnmower
We are very pleased so far with this mower..came ready to go,,just put in oil and gas, adjusted height with no problem and cut and mulched and bagged,,everything worked great.. the rpm is set with a governor and it feels like its too low but does a fine job at that speed..charged the battery the night before as directed and it started the first time my wife turned the key..all this plus the great warranty,,can't beat it..

Great value for an Electric Start - Self Propelled!
Delivered to my home with free shipping. Setup was easy and straightforward out of the box. Added the oil that was included in the box and some gas, turned the key and it started instantly. I shopped and reviewed all makes and models and this one provided the features I wanted at a great price - around $350! Rear wheel drive self-propelled, electric start, bag or mulch, not too heavy, 20" width, and a Kohler engine. As other reviews indicated - the plastic slip on pieces for the wheel height adjusters are cheap and poorly designed. I just retrofitted / replaced them with some other plastic sleeves I had laying around on my workbench and this minor issue was solved. Only a slight annoyance.

Excellent Value
I did extensive research before deciding on this Lawn-Boy self-propelled electric start mower. Arrived earlier than expected. After adding gas and oil, it started on first try. After using several times, I am very pleased with this purchase.

First lawnmower arrived dammaged
I was put out that the first lawnmower had dammage to the front wheel system. This made it inoperatable to adjust the height of the cut. I had to tote it back to my local store for credit. The second one is working well. I was given a 10% discount on the second machine.

Easy Start
Mower starts with first turn of key. Adjusting the cutting height is as bit of a bother as you need to adjust each wheel separately. Tried the bagger not all the clippings make it into to the bag and the self propell feature is great for a workout - a bit fast for my taste and safety preference.. nothing like running behind the mower. It runs well and cuts the lawn evenly and is lighweight enough to push with out using self propell.

Excellent product for price
Only a few minutes to assemble, add oil, hookup battery and away you go. Other reviewers commented on left-wheel riser being messed up out of the box-mine too-but can be fixed easily with a pliers.

This product went beyond my expectations.
I did not realize before purchasing all the features my Lawn Boy mower had such as variable speed in setting how fast you wanted to mow, the quietness of the mower, and what a great job it would do up close to the house. Very satisfied and happy that I chose this one.

Great mower
I bought this mower because it was a good value for what it was,self propelled and electric start. After using it it works great for even the tallest grass,mulches well and starts first crank with starter or pull rope. Lawn Boy has done a great job here.

DO NOT BUY!!
Came with the left rear blade height adjustment bent so badly that it would not lock into place. I was able to move the teeth a bit with a wrench, which made it useable. Mower started right up and ran GREAT! for the first 5 feet that is. Then the self-propelled drive system locked up and refused to budge. The build quality is poor, even for this price range. The bagging system is an utter joke... the chute is really narrow- now way is long grass or leaves going to make it into the bag...lWhile the engine is really nice, the wheels and some of the other components feel filmsy. I cannot believe that it 1. arrived bent and 2. arrived broken. SAVE YOUR $ AND BUY SOMETHING ELSE!!!

    good value
    I looked at a lot of lawnmowers. My criteria: no Briggs and Stratton motor (I've only had bad luck with these); self-propelled; no big wheels in back (these eventually crack off from the extra leverage exerted when turning and they are costly to replace); decent reliability reviews from Consumer Reports; fair price. This mower filled my criteria and I have not been disappointed. The Kohler motor started with the very first pull. I was thinking I would get a Honda but they are a lot more money and the cheaper models have the big wheels in back. Also, the drive system on the Hondas is not as reliable as that of the LawnBoy (according to Consumer Reports). I'm very happy with my choice.

    good mower poor electric start option
    . The mower works great, easy to assembly, cuts very fast, easy to start with the one pull of the rope starter. The electric start worked well for the first 3 times than stopped, will not start the mower and/or will not recharge, have no clue why. The electric start was the primary purpose why I purchased this model.

    The electric starter lets my wife start the machine by Herself.
    This is the first 4 cycle Lawnboy I have owned. If it as good as the last two I owned I will not have to replace until after I get to be 100 years old.

    This is a great lawn mower
    I purchased this for the easy start. It works great, light weight. , The only negative comment is that I wish it had a spare key. Other than that, I am very pleased. Only gave a 4 due to not having an extra key

    An awesome mower
    The powered wheels can be controlled like a gas pedal to move at a speed you want it to move. The battery is external on top of the mower and is easy to charge and clean. Runs quiet and cuts tall grass better than my old mower.

    light weight ,easy to control
    Shutoff switch had to be bent in order for it to work and the motor cover has several scratches on top but other than that, I am very pleased with its performance and the easy starting with the turn of a key

    Great Mower - Same Problems
    Purchase and delivery of this mower was super easy. It showed up on my porch and took only a few minutes to cut it out of the box, add fluids, and get it started. Fantastic! I couldn't be happier about that. The key, as well as the pull start, worked perfectly. However, the battery box won't stay shut - a minor detail. My one big gripe about this product is basically the same as I read from other consumers...The rear wheel adjustment on one side of the mower was messed up. Others reviews have noted that the lever was bent or broken in shipping. When I went to adjust one side, I found that it could only be put in the upper half of the range of movement. I first assumed that the lever had been bent as I had read from previous reviews. In actuality, after I snapped off the lever trying to "bend" it back, I realized the lever was installed backwards in the factory build. Strange. Now I've got to figure out how to either deal with it, or get Home Depot to help me get a part. Sure cut the grass nice at that fixed level, though. I mulched the first time. The bag looks nice, but I agree with others that the opeining to the bag is a bit small. What made me happiest about this product was the fact that it started as easy as everyone else had advised. I can't stand going out to mow and the thing won't get going for me.

    this is third electric start lawnboy I have purches in 22 years
    I have an average size yard, to small for a rider but I also have sholder problems so an electric start is a must. The Lawnboy electrics have been the best I have found. with maintenance I get about 10 years out of mowers and they are still going when I get a new one, I sell the old ones. This new on has a Kohler engine on it . With Kohlers quility history I am looking to get even better service.
