Looking to get a cheap lawnmower that I won't regret :)


Actually, that's a tree stump from a 45' spruce I took down in February.

The sprinkler works fine, you may need to adjust the small screw or the flapper.

Hmmm, only the throw arm and the screw are adjustable on mine, I don't see anywhere to adjust the flapper. Either way, mine's making pools because the seals on it are garbage and it's dumping through connections (should probably tape it, but I swap back and forth between that and a regular hose handle so it'd be too tedious, easier to just deal with the pools by placing it in spots where the pools stay in landscape beds or the driveway lol).

I just got back from lowes (stoped in to check on that mower for you) it is a bolens 5hp 22inch cut push mower reg price 147.34 on sale at my store for 109.99 and I am in western Pa. I am not a big fan of Lowes either but for that price on a mower with a briggs motor you take atvantage of a good deal when you can

I don't see any on their website with a reg price at 147, but I see one right below that price, and one right above it... I may just have to make a trip to lowes then! Wish I grabbed one when I had my coupon in hand lol!

I imagine it's one of these two you're referring to:

Are you stalking me? lol I have a lowes coupon that says it's valid til tomorrow. So this evening I'm thinking "damn, I should go buy that, but I really wanna do some last minute checking to be sure. Should I just go now and use the coupon?" I decided to trash the coupon and learn more about the mowers before buying, but you just let me have the best of both worlds, thanks!

The second mower (Bolens) looks pretty good. And the bag comes with it. That's a definate plus.

, I should have bought that one.

I was in Lowe's this morning, they're starting to line up all the yard equipment at a discounted price. You might want to take a road trip to see what's available, too.

If it's seasonal then HD should be discounting too, I'll probably check both

Kinda makes me wanna wait longer to get it cheaper, but I'm pretty sure the grass is already tall enough that I'm gonna kill half of it when I mow, so every day hurts!

My buddy is happy with his Honda, they are pricey though.
My LawnBoy is only a couple years old but still starts on the first pull.
But does it have VTEC?

haha I had my honda so customized that a blue light in my dash (that read 'vtec') lit when the solenoid activated!!! Damn my honda was tight!
<< I'm not talking about any ghetto mod - there's extra squares in the dash display, whihc I had the sick brushed aluminum overlay for, I used blue clear plastic, printed 'vtec' on it with a cool font, placed in there, bulbed it and wired to the solenoid. Damn that car was hooked up! Of course it met the fate of most hondas that have too much engine work - it died!!!!!!!! But that thing looked, sounded, and drove great while it worked! Funniest part is that my v6 galant is faster than my honda which had virtually every modification you could imagine besides a turbo or a supercharger..>>

Seriously, the Honda mowers are very reliable. My father has had the same Honda mower for 12 years now and has done hardly any maintenence other then getting the blade sharpened and maybe change the oil twice.
