In-Depth Lawn Boy 10730 Review
Ease Of Use
Lawn Boy’s promise of a guaranteed start isn’t extravagant. They actually mean what they say and it is evident from the first time you start the mower. As long as you use the oil provided by Lawn Boy, or switch to a synthetic make with SAE 10W-30 and an API rating of SJ or higher, the Kohler engine ought to kick into life with the first pull of the cord. The 10730 lawn boy lawn mower comes with the handles and rear bag separate. They even send you a complimentary bottle of engine oil so once you are done tightening the nuts and bolts, filling up the tank, the mower is ready to run for at least a few months before it needs some sort of maintenance.
The wheel design, steel deck, mulching and blade assembly all come together smoothly to ensure a seamless and rewarding mowing experience. Grass never clumps up with this mower thanks to the unique blade design that incorporates tiny peg like holes on the blades behind the serrated sharp edges, which I believe to be the cause for such fine clippings, especially in the mulching mode.
No questions here, the Lawn Boy 10730 petrol lawn mower is a maestro. Once you adjust the height, all that remains is to run the mower over your entire yard covering every patch at least once. In fact, its efficiency eliminates the need for a second run provided you regularly mow your lawn such as twice or thrice a month. Be it soggy grass, dry or uneven terrain with tiny puddles, this Lawn Boy sure does know a trick or two.
Most Lawn Boy lawn mowers use a system called Height-of-Cut that makes adjusting the height super easy. This particular model allows between 1.25 and 3.75 inches which is great. Adjusting the height is simple and quick, in fact you can seamlessly change the height while the mower is operating. This comes handy for uneven terrain to give the impression of a flatter ground by altering the grass height.
No doubts here. Kohler OHV 144cc engine with 3 years of warranty on the start-up and 2 years covering the entire mower ought to suffice in removing any demons you may otherwise have in your mind regarding the power or efficiency of the engine. As far as noise levels go, this Kohler engine isn’t as noisy as the 160cc Honda engine used on other 21 inch line-ups of Lawn Boy mowers.
Nothing really to maintain with the Lawn Boy. Keep a check on the engine oil and winterize the unit properly to ensure longevity. One more thing, you may want to get the optional cover for the 10730 which is exceptionally sturdy and massive. The cover ought to keep your investment safe and sound through rain, sleet, snow and anything else with its quality construction, size and ability to clip around the entire unit even with the discharge rear bag.
Absolutely cost effective, and while you can find a cheaper mowers in the market you won’t find many cheaper with the same level of technology, assurances and ease-of-use. By the way, the blade design and steel deck are unique in the entire industry with Lawn Boy currently the only ones offering these two things, which again removes from the cost of maintenance down the line as you never have to worry about a cracked deck or blunt edges.
- great technology for its price
- good cut quality
- no cover is included
