Restored Lawn-Boy 10651 Self Propelled Commercial lawn mower. 1996 model. Serial number 6900598.
This mower features Lawnboy's respected OMC F series 2 cycle engine rated at 5.0 HP. It also features a belt driven 3 speed self propel system with an all gear transmission and a lightweight cast aluminum deck. This Commercial machine also has upgrades such as greaseable steel front wheels with ball bearings, a large capacity 1 gallon fuel tank, and a steel guard around the engine and muffler. Requires a 32:1 gas/oil mix.
This highly desireable commercial lawn mower has been restored to near original condition. The restoration process began with a thorough cleaning and degreasing. The aluminum deck has been striped of paint and refinished with automotive acrylic enamel paint over an epoxy primer. The deck has some pitting, but no cracks or breaks. The console and handle have been refinished, as have the commercial steel ball-bearing front wheels. The engine has been disassembled, cleaned, honed, and rebuilt with a new piston, rings, and seals. The carburetor has been disassembled, cleaned and rebuilt with a Lawn-Boy kit including float valve and primer bulb. Additional new parts include a new CD ignition module, new exhaust gasket, new trailing shield, and new decals on the deck, console and recoil. The rear wheels are the hard to find original plastic ones.
This is a nice example of a very rare commercial model made for only one year.
