Lawn-boy prides itself on being a backyard icon of the USA, and the creed it stands by being quality and craftsmanship that is friendly to a householder’s budget. Originally the company was called Evinrude Motors by the founder, Ole Evinrude when he set it up in 1904. It was renamed Lawn-boy subsequently.
