Lawn Boy 10606 Review

Welcome to our Lawn Boy 10606 review page.

We actually did an initial review for this lawn mower in May 2011. However, we have decided to take another look at this, to give it a fairer comparison – using our new scoring matrix.

The Lawn Boy brand does have a range of mowers, but how would the popular 10606 compare against some of its rivals ?

Lawn Boy 10606 – Product Details

The Lawn Boy 10606 is a versatile gas self-propelled lawn mower, which can be started via an electric key start or a pull cord. Rear-wheel drive is powered through two eight-inch wheels, with two seven-inch wheels at the front. Lawn Boy 10606 review

Minimal build is required ‘out of the box’, with just a simple handle fitting that does not require any tools.

Height adjustment is independent on each wheel – we actually prefer the one-lever system seen on many mowers.

Small and compact, it is very robust and easy to manoeuvre even over the toughest of ground. The blade and cut are quite impressive

As part of its safety features, the engine will cut off and blade stop spinning within 3 seconds of release of the power bar.
