Come on tell us about your favorite lawnmowers...

I’m going to nominate Lawn-Boy mowers, because simply, they were the best. I say “were” because the new ones aren’t in the same league as the old ones. For decades the Lawn-Boy mowers featured a lightweight cast alloy body with a lightweight 2-stroke engine. It was a maneuverable machine that didn’t bog down in tall grass thanks to the 2-stroke’s smooth torque. Relatively recently they gave up the 2-stroke - sacrilege.

Most mower companies were satisfied to squash out a piece of steel, put any old 4-stroke lump on top and call it a day. But some companies went a little further for the few of us that enjoy the finer things in life.

So which mower do you feel excels?
