As many people find lawn mowing tedious, they will seek to purchase a lawn mower somewhat easier to use than a standard mower. A self-propelled mower, like the Lawn Boy 10632, is useful for lawns under half an acre, being so designed for engine power to be diverted to the wheels for easier mower handling. With less effort being needed for grass cutting and its ability to maneuver in confined spaces, the Lawn Boy 10632 may be a better choice, for example, than a riding mower that requires a larger turning radius. This mower would certainly be useful for older people and those of slight build when being used on slopes and over uneven ground.


The Lawn Boy 10632 is a rear wheel-driven machine powered by a 140cc 4-cycle Briggs and Stratton engine that incorporates a Ready Start system. No priming or choking is needed for starting the mower and the manufacturer gives a 3-year guarantee that if the machine doesn’t start in two pulls, it will be fixed for free.

The mower has a 20-inch cutting deck and its multi-notched cutting blade works efficiently to cut the grass into fine clippings – clippings that will enable superior mulching and a healthier lawn. Cutting height can be adjusted in increments from 1 to 4 inches. A spacious mower bag is provided for efficient bagging.

7 inch front wheels and 8 inch rear wheels ensure easy manoeuvrability over uneven terrain and in hard-to-reach areas. The traction feature of the wheel arrangement makes for easier pushing of the machine uphill and for turning. Additional aids to easy and comfortable operation are the light weight of the machine – 69 pounds – and the adjustable, well-padded handle.

A muffler is incorporated to conveniently minimize mower noise.

The well designed engine block and airflow system enhances engine cooling.

A wash-out function enables a garden hose to be attached to the top of the aluminium corrosion-free deck for easy mower cleaning.

The mower is supported by a full 2-year warranty and a 3-year warranty on its Ready Start system.

Note: Users of self-propelled mowers should bear in mind that the extra power generated causes additional vibration that can travel through handles and affect hands and arms. I have, however, found no reports of vibration being a problem on the Lawn Boy 10632. This is to be expected, though, as the best manufacturers take special precautions to prevent vibration travelling through the handles.


The Lawn Boy 10632 has been designed to meet the needs of most mower users. It is ideal for those seeking a high performance affordable machine with low running costs and one that can be handled easily over rough terrain and hilly lawns – a boon in particular for older people and slightly built users.

It is light in weight, reliable and has outstanding cutting performance even on thick, high grass.
