Value of a Vintage Buttercup Lawn Boy Mower

June 21, 2020

An old yellow lawnmower.I have a 3052 Buttercup Lawn-Boy 18" cut mower. I just refreshed the motor and is running and mowing well. There are all new seals on motor, good compression, and a freshly sharpened blade. I was wondering how much it's worth?

Currently this make and model is not listed anywhere online. I have found a few places that actually will sell some parts or even old books or publicity about this mower but nobody seems to be listing it at all. Normally older mowers like this sell for around $125-175. The newer models are selling for around $325-395. A lot of time you can find collectors on special lawnmower forums that might be interested in buying this mower from you. They could also be a lot moe helpful in determining the actual price of this mower. We only have information that we obtain online to help people understand what other people are asking for these items.

Vintage Lawn Boy mowers are popular and it appears 2 Buttercup mowers were recently sod on eBay so these should give you a good idea as to the current value of your mower.


The first mower sold in July for $178 + $74 for shipping.
This one is model 3051.

The second one sold in June for $130 + $140 shipping.
Model 3052

Here is a model 3052 that does not look as good as yours that is presently Listed for sale on eBay. You can place a watch on this one to see if it sells.
You can sometimes find useful information by reviewing listing's descriptions.

Information sites:

You can see that your mower is popular but shipping costs will many times keep one from selling. Most sellers list these mowers as 'local pick up only' but if they are not selling well in your area then it may still go unsold.

I would recommend that you list your mower - with several good pictures - on sites like Craigslist, USA4Sale and list it as pick up only. You can also list on other sites - same information.


You can start your mower at a higher price - no shipping - and if no one shows an interest you can lower the price.
