Great Little Mower!
Needed a new mower that would get through our back yard gate and haul some compost, etc. for our garden beds. Well, this Troy Bilt with the roughly 13 hp. engine fits the bill with plenty of power. I also wanted a Sun Shade on it because I don't care for wearing hats on my bald head. Got this dandy Dump Cart for hauling 7 - 40 lb. bags = 280 lbs. of compost, top soil, mulch, etc. with ease. Added a Deck Washer attachment as well. Now, my little buddy done went an elected himself as the... more

Nice If It Ran!!!!!
Mower arrived with a puddle of oil in the bottom of the crate. Of course I didn't see it until the shipper left. Called MD and they said that sometimes this happens. Checked the oil level and it still had plenty. Put it together, and put in fresh gas. Went to start it and battery was dead. Off to the store for a charger ($100), now $1300 mower. Charged the battery and the motor turned over but would not fire. The spark plug looked ok, but no gas appeared to getting to the plug. Would... more

Troy Bilt / Sears Rear Engine Mower Video Walkaround
I have both versions of this mower at two separate locations. The Troy-Bilt and the Sears. I have not had any problems with either, other than the clutch being a little jumpy.

Careful on hills and uneven ground as it is easy to scalp your lawn with the absence of wheels on the mower deck. All around a great mower.

I personally like my Troy Bilt version better...just better product support...same machine.

Pros And Cons
I worry about all the plastic and whether it will hold up. I don't like the shifter up in front of the seat, it's hard to reach and stiff. I like the bigger tires and nice turning radius. The bigger tires make it easier to put away and maneuver. I haven't had it that long so I may have further comments later. So far I am happy for the most part and hope that it last for years. I felt secure in getting this product because of the Troy-Bilt name.
Pros: Price, Easy To Use, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again

Great Turning Radius
The best small/compact riding mower I've ever owned. Cuts my mowing time in half, great on gas. Turns on a dime.
Pros: Price, High Quality, Reliable, Quiet

Great So Far
I have used it 3 times so far and it works great. My yard is a little uneven so I find that the deck settings 2 or 3 work fine. I recommend this mower for anyone.

This is a good product. Easy on gas and gets the job done fast. The ride is a little bumpy sometimes, but that is from the landscaping.
