I recently bought my first 2 cycle Lawnboy. Most of the push mowing that I do is on hillsides so I used to buy the cheapest thing I could find and run it till it died! I finally found a 2 cycle that I could afford. I bought it from a friend who was moving for $75. I have 7 or 8 push mowers in various states of disrepair. A couple of Husky's, an older Sears with an aluminum deck, a Yard Machines, some others I can't remember, and a Bolens that I bought at Lowes for $25 because someone ran a forklift through the side of the box and smashed the side of the mower.
