Lawn-Boy Insight Platinum Series Self-Propelled Lawn Mower
I purchased my Lawn-Boy Insight Platinum Series lawn mower at the beginning of the summer and I have been nothing but impressed. First I would like to talk about the Honda engine used on this mower.
This was the main reason I chose this machine over several other options. This engine is smooth, powerful, and extremely easy to start. I have owned Honda engines in the past and they have always given me years of reliable performance.
The 21” mower deck is great because it is large enough to cut down on your mowing time, but it is still small and light enough to maneuver around any obstacles in the yard. The Sens-a-Speed self propel system is awesome once you get used to it.
The first couple of times I ran the mower it tended to be challenging to turn around at the end of the row, however, once I got the hang of it everything was great. The speed of the self propel is nice as well because its top speed is faster than many mowers, and I like to walk pretty fast. Another nice feature is the pull handle to start the mower.
This may sound insignificant but having the full handle is much easier on your hand than the conventional T-style pull handles. Finally, the mulching feature on the mower is perfect.
I always hated bagging in the past, but this mower has plenty of power to mulch anything, even if you let the grass grow a little more than you should have. All in all, I love the mower and I am sure it will keep me happy for years to come.
