Lawn Boy 10738 21-Inch Electric Start Self Propelled Lawn Mower Review

Lawn Boy 10738 21-Inch Electric Start Self Propelled Lawn Mower

If you are planning to self propelled lawn mower then you should read this Lawn Boy 10738 review first. In 1996, the company generated high repurchase rates (58%) for their walk power mower products. This indicated high customer satisfaction. The 10738 is not their most popular product. However, considering all of the features such as the Lawn-Boy’s Tru-Start commitment, it may be the right choice for you.

Priced around $300, the budget-friendly lawn mower features a rear-wheel drive system. RWD mowing machines come in handy when dealing with moderate slopes. They generally have good traction on hills. If you have ½ acre to mow, a lawn mower with self-propel mechanism will allow you to get the job done quickly with minimum effort on your part. Riding mower is overkill for half an acre. In addition to this, mowing the lawn with a rider does not count as exercise, something that may be important for you.

The Lawn Boy rotary walk behind has a self-propel drive bar. Featuring variable speed feature, the speed is controllable by how much you depress the bar. Squeeze the bar to provide tension to the transmission belt. There is an adjustable self-propel drive cable that runs down the left-hand side of the mower. You can adjust the cable by loosening the cable support nut on the handle and pull down the cable jacket. Then tighten the nut on the cable support.

Lawn Boy 10738 21-Inch Blade

When choosing a lawn mower, an easy starting system is a must. To give you a hassle-free lawn mowing experience, this rotary walk behind machine comes with electric start option. It has a battery for electric start. There is a pull start if necessary. To start the engine, hold the blade control bar against the handle and then turn the ignition key or pull the recoil-start handle. Lawn Boy issues a Tru-Start Commitment with this mower. If starting the engine takes more than 2 pulls, they will fix your unit for free.

Powered by a Briggs and Stratton 6.25 ft. lb. gross torque engine, the rear wheel drive mower comes equipped with 21 in. wide cutting deck. This is a good size for small to medium lawns. It comes standard with 8″ rear wheels. The cutting height can be adjusted. It offers 2-point, 6 position cutting height. You need to set the front wheels and the rear wheels to the same height. The cutting height settings are 1-1/4 inches, 1-3/4 inches, 2-1/4 inches, 2-3/4 inches, 3-1/4 inches and 3-3/4 inches.

The 190cc gasoline powered lawn mower allows you to mulch, bag or side discharge grass. It comes from the factory ready to mulch. Out of the box, you can use it mulch grass and leaf clippings back into the yard. A grass bag is provided in case you want to collect grass clippings. You can receive a discharge chute free from Lawn Boy by registering your mower at the company’s website. Changing the bag, mulch or side discharge is a snap requiring no tools.

All in all, the Lawn Boy 10738 is not a perfect unit. It will not meet everyone’s needs and requirements. However, if you need a self propel mowing machine which is easy to start, the 21-Inch gas mower is worth considering. The price is much lower than many 21″ self propel gas mowers out there.
