So we needed a new lawn mower for the maintenance guy at the cabins, now I had bought a poulan at sears, 3.5 hp, took 20 pulls to start 8 years ago, took it back to sears got a partial refund, and got a craftsman with a honda engine. It has been good, but the salesman was like if you can’t start a 3.5hp how do you think you will start a 5.5hp motor.
I am it is not me it is the mower, mower has been good, first pull and it starts every time.
So I had a choice of mowers, mtd (no go) poulan (no go) Lawn boy, sure let’s try it for $50 or so more.
Yard guy is it 2 cycle?
No I don’t think they make those anymore.
Lawn boy, that should be good.
In reading it has an oil fill, but no oil drain, now on my honda engine you have to tilt the mower to drain the fluid, but now no oil change ever needed just fill oil as needed per lawnboy manual
Now we are seeing this for transmissions in cars, and how many of us old farts will be sucking out the oil from the lawnmower with a turkey baster to do an oil change in a lawnmower, count me as one, but I for one thinks this stinks worse than taking out throttle speed control for lawnmowers, as I was told it reduces emissions, tell me how being able to run a lawnmower at 1/2 speed if that was all that was needed vs full speed all the time reduces emissions!
I think I am getting to be a crotchety old fart but it does not all make sense to me.
How soon before cars go the way of lawnmowers, you can fill the oil but no need to change it, fingernails on a blackboard to others, never minded fingernails on a blackboard I suppose because I was the one doing it
