Lawn Boy Complaint - Lawn Boy has a quality problem with its self-propelled mowers
I had a 5 year old Lawn Boy self-propelled lawn mower. Last summer it began to break down. The drive (transmission componets) wore out. It was not because of lack of maintainence. Some of the componets were sealed units not requiring any additional lubrication. I contacted the company (distributor) who said that was nornal. After 5 years you can expect the transmission to fail. I asked then why should I pay a premium price for their product. I spent $270 for the repair. It worked for one summer and another component of the drive broke and it would cost me another $245. I left the Lawn Boy mower at the service center and bought a Honda. So far its been good.
