I'm on my 4th mower here. First was a lawn boy that I had for over 20 years and thought it was great but, it finally died. Bought one at sears but it didn't last long. Need a new engine and did that retired it to the lake. 6 or 7 years ago, bought a Honda self propelled. Well it's the greatest mower I've ever owned. Last summer I had to buy another mower for the lake. The old sears one with a new motor gave up the ghost. Bought it at Lambert and the make escapes me (senior moment) It's a close 2nd to the Honda.
