Lawnboy or Honda
I have a Honda HRR216VXA mower that I have to replace and I am trying to decide between another Honda and a Lawnboy. Before you respond with "no comparison" please finish reading this.
A while ago I had a Lawnboy Gold Series that lasted me 23 years. It was a 2 cycle and one of the best mowers ever made, IMHO. The Honda I have now has lasted me about 6 years (the engine bearings are bad and the engine needs to be replaced). One thing I liked better about my LB was that it was more maneuverable than my Honda. Mowing with my Honda is like trying to mow the yard with a tank. I realize that Honda are probably a lot better mower than Lawnboy now but one thing that attracted me to possibly getting another Lawnboy is the fact that they have a Kohler engine in them which I know is (was) a very good engine and I liked the maneuverability of the Lawnboy over the Honda.
So, my question is "are Lawnboys that much inferior to what they used to be or are they still a pretty good mower even if not equal to Honda"
