Comment:
I have a Lawn Boy with the same engine. The Honda engine is tops on both mowers. That is where the similarity ends. The Honda is solid in every way. The handle on the Lawn Boy is much lighter weight and has broken twice! The feel of the Honda is like a whole different class up. The cut is much smoother (due to dual blades) and the mower's ease of use and adjustability makes mowing a pleasure
