This mower features Lawnboy's highly respected OMC F series 2 cycle engine. It also features a belt driven self propel system and a lightweight cast aluminum deck with rear discharge.

This highly desireable commercial lawn mower has been reconditioned. The mower has been thoroughly cleaned and degreased. The aluminum deck has been touched up with genuine Lawn-Boy paint. The deck is very clean with minimal pitting, but no cracks or breaks. The front wheels have been refinished.
The engine has been disassembled, cleaned, and rebuilt with a new piston, rings, crankshaft bearings and crankshaft seals. The carburetor has been disassembled, cleaned and reassembled. New decals have been installed. A NOS grass bag has been installed on the original frame, and a NOS drive belt has also been installed. A NOS engine brake cable has also been installed. The shroud and tank bracket have been refinished. The rear wheels are the hard to find original plastic ones.
This is a nice example of a very rare rear discharge commercial model -it was only made for one year. It starts easily and runs well. The self propel system works great. Perfect for your collection!
