The Lawn Boy 10634 is a 3-in-1 (mulch, bag, side-discharge) rear wheel drive self propelled mower, complete with an electric start, 20 inch cutting deck, 1-4 inch cutting height range, and more. Therefore, it’s clear that it has a lot going for it; however, Lawn Boy’s customer service falls a little short.
The 10634 is powered by a 6.25 ft. lb. Gross torque OHV Briggs & Stratton engine (a little lighter than its predecessor, the Lawn Boy 10632) and features a generous fuel tank capacity of 2 gallons.
Starting up the engine is a very simple process (there is no need to pull on a cord a few times) thanks to the electric start feature; all you have to do is turn the key and the engine starts right up every single time without fail.
The cutting deck measures 20 inches, which is large enough to mow a medium sized yard in one go.
We’re always a fan of 20 inch cutting decks, as we feel that they’re neither big nor too small. In fact, it’s just the right size to ensure that a mower is easy to maneuver, even when faced with corners and tight spaces.
The Lawn Boy 10634 does a better job than many other mowers, which is no surprise when you consider that it comes with a 4-inch deep-domed deck and tri-cut blade.
To put it simply, grass clippings are minced into very fine particles so they can be put back onto your lawn to give it a healthier, cleaner look. However, you can also collect your grass clippings by attaching the grass bag.
Many mowers tend to have a minimum cutting height of 1.5 inches, which isn’t good news if you like your lawn to look like a putting green.
Fortunately, the cutting height of the Lawn Boy can be adjusted from 1-4 inches, giving a good deal of versatility to the operator, especially as the cutting height can be adjusted in 7 increments.
The front wheels measure 7 inches and the rear wheels 8 inches, providing the Lawn Boy with solid traction and making it easy to maneuver, even when faced with hilly or uneven terrain. Furthermore, the 20-inch dome ensures that you are able to mow in those hard-to-reach places.
As the Lawn Boy 10634 is a rear wheel drive self propel mower, this automatically makes it more comfortable to use, and is something that older individuals who aren’t as fit as they used to be are likely to appreciate.
The mower is also relatively light, weighing 69 pounds, and the rear wheel drive system also has the added benefit of providing better traction to tackle slopes and improve maneuverability.
It’s also worth mentioning that the handle is adjustable and features a good amount of padding.
The 10634 is backed by a full 2-year warranty and a 3-year engine start-up warranty.

Lawn Boy 10634 Reviews
The reviews for the 10634 have generally been quite good. It currently has an average rating of 3.5 out of 5.0.
Owners have praised the mower’s simplicity, particular its assembly process (lift the handle and add oil and gas), as well as its ease of use. The electric start also appears to be a well-liked feature, as is adjusting the cutting height as well as any other adjustments.
The only negatives are from one person who received a faulty model right out of the box and another who feels that Lawn Boy’s customer service could be improved upon.

Reading up on users’ experiences with Lawn Boy’s customer service, we agree that it could be improved upon, although ultimately whatever issue the customer is experiencing does get resolved in the end.
Anything Else You Should Know?
A couple of other things worth mentioning include how the engine and blade will stop within 3 seconds after release of the operator bail clutch bar, and how a side discharge chute is available for free once the mower has been registered.
The only thing to add is that the Lawn Boy 10634 is a welcome entry to the mid-priced rear wheel drive self propel mower market. It seems to do pretty much everything right and little wrong, although it would be nice if Lawn Boy put as much effort into their customer service as they do their design and manufacturing process.
