Hello, so we acquired an old vintage Lawn Boy push mower, and haven't been able to get a definitive answer yet. We are trying to figure out how to price it when it's kinda all over the place online. It's a 1980's model 8671 serial 9518484. It has never been used, hasn't even seen a drop of fuel.
It's in pristine condition. Sadly the box and paperwork didn't come with it but you don't have to be a rocket scientist to see that it's never seen grass. It's a 2 cycle engine F141 and was made 1980-1982. I would like to get a value on it so I can price it correctly. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
Old Lawn-Boy lawn mowers are great to use, and were quite ahead of their time. Powerful, smooth, and without equal even today, but for the person just wanting a mower it's not worth much, to the collector they have value.
In 1934, the original Lawn-Boy lawn mower was manufactured by the Evinrude Company, becoming the first one-handed reel power mower introduced to the North American public. Evinrude purchased Johnson Motor Wheel Company a year later, and in 1936 they merged with the Outboard Marine and Manufacturing Company (OMC), continuing production of Lawn-Boy reel mowers. In 1952, they purchased the Rotary Power Mower Company, after they pioneered the (now common) rotary lawnmower six years earlier. The next couple of decades included a long period of research and development as the company continued to expand, including overseas. Riding mowers, tillers, and snow blowers were introduced, as well as a new 2-stroke engine in 1970 that produced more power, with less weight and fewer parts. Today, after being acquired by Toro in 1989, lawn-Boy still holds the lead for repurchase rates, as 58% of Lawn-Boy users were previous Lawn-Boy owners.
The market for these mowers is small and scattered. Anything is worth a little less than you are asking, and a little more than people are willing to pay. In order to get a decent price you need to be willing to ship.
Lawn Boy's on eBay sell for much more when the seller is willing to ship.
I think $300-400, but it would sit a long time till someone came around.
I have doubts about the sold price for $2,000 of a lawn mower with the same description and the same photo
Thanks for all the input. The sold item for $2000 was mine. I did take best offer and the buyer is a collector of Lawn Boy that is going to display it. It turns out it's a rarity to collectors but to it being 40 years old and all original. It even had the original filter, brittle but still intact. It's nice to know that there are some who still cherish the quality and craftsmanship that went into equipment years ago unlike thinhs today.

I recently saved this beauty from the scrap yard, but can't find any info. I was wondering its value.
I can't seem to find the exact mower you are asking about. However, there are other vintage mowers similar to yours that are selling for around $60 yo $150.
There is one on Pinterest that shows it as red and green:
As to value, that is very regional, so my suggestion is to talk to your local feed store or local hardware store of if you are lucky enough to have an antique/vintage shop that deals in garden items, talk to them about how much it would cost to buy a fully restored version in your town.
That will be retail and you can expect to get a little less than retail if you are selling it on your own.
Post back what you learn and where you are located so we can all learn regional values! Thanks for asking.
Would you know the value of something like this? It's all original and shouldn't take much to get going.I recently found it in an old barn I purchased. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Hi! I would just put it on for $200 or more if it is really old and see if anyone buys it!
I can not find the exact mower you have pictured here. In order to quote you a fair price for the item it is difficult because it seems nobody has one listed or there are no images of this mower I can find. In order to understand what you have found and what it is worth you will need to visit a lawnmower forum that specializes in these types of mowers to find out more about this mower.
I recently found this mower in the back of my shed. I am wondering if it has any value or if I should scrap it. Is there a way to look up the serial number?
Here is a good site to help you find the serial number of your mower - www.simplicitymfg.com/
Can anyone tell me what year this mower is and the value of it?
Usually a vintage Lawn Boy mower in nice running order in good looking condition can sell for several hundred dollars but you say nothing about your mower's running condition and it definitely needs cleaning up. The blade size makes a difference also.
since there are several of these mowers that look alike, you will need the model number to find out the year made and also to be able to sell it.
You can check eBay listings to see if you can find your mower and place a watch on it if you do. You will then know if it sells and for how much.
Here is a link to eBay's sold mowers so check out what people were willing to pay for this type of mower as only a sold item can tell you a 'current value'. Asking prices are just what a seller would like to receive for their items.
You can also check Google for your mower (you need the model number) as you can find mowers listed for sale and sold on many sites.
These mowers are expensive to ship so most sellers list their mowers as 'pick up only' so naturally some places are into mowers like this while others could care less and then value will be much lower.
You can check your area out by looking for similar mowers on Craigslist, USA4Sale, Facebook Marketplace, etc.
You'll have to determine your mower's value after doing some of this research as well as the overall condition and what is selling in your area.
I have a Clinton VS1000, gas powered mower. How rare is it and how much is it worth?
Here is a bit of history about your mower. The very first Clinton factory was established in 1946. The factory opened in Clinton Ohio where it has 150 employees who made gas powered engines. I have tried to find the mower online to get an idea about how much it is worth. They are still selling parts to fix the mower and you can still buy a lot of them online today. As for the value of the mower this is determined by the condition of the mower and if it is running or not. I do not see if your mower is running or not. The condition is very bad and a person would need to invest a lot of time and some money into restoring the mower. A lot of older gas powered mowers sell online for around $150 but they are also in a little bit better condition than yours is.
I would like to know the value of my 1948 Coldwell-Philadelphia Bear power mower. It has a Briggs & Stratton Model WI motor. The engine does turn over.
It appears that nobody wants to sell this mower. I can find a few videos of the mower running on YouTube. However, everyone who owns this mower isn't selling them. I would suggest that you contact an antique mower dealer in your area. He will be able to give you an idea of the selling price. Just remember dealers will give you the lowest price possible. You can take his price and add 25 to 50 percent to find the price you can sell your mower at. Hope this helps.
I have a 1964 Cub Cadet 100 lawn tractor with the owner's manual with the date of purchase. The tractor is equipped with original tires and motor. I have the original mower deck and two snowblower attachments. What is this worth?
LOW ASKING PRICE OF A 1964 TRACTOR IS 600.00,HIGH PRICE IS 1450,00.
I was just wondering what the value of this mower is. I have had it for years and just would like to see if it's worth auctioning off to make a bit of money.
How do I find out the value of a 1970 Toro Whirlwind electric lawnmower model 18301?
