This was my first new lawn tractor purchase. I'm very happy with this product. I lucked out to have gotten a free trailer with purchase. More + for me.

Cruddle wobbly and belt keeps coming off motor. Try to start it up then freezes then have to open up hood while sitting on it turning it with my hand to get it to turn over. Nice. Right now I know why they gave me free little wheelbarrow trailer. Have to keep sanding and painting spots on it from rusting. Had a Cub Cadet too. Another piece of junk and went in the garbage. I guess you do get what you pay for junk.

We purchased it used, it gave us 13 yrs with little maintenance. Our son loved it as a mud runner, when it rained. Yes, the mower deck was removed. But he loved that mower for several years after the mowing deck had seen its better days and was removed.

2013 model Troy-Bilt Pony. Had trouble with... mower deck, power and deck belts, battery, carb, muffler and overall durability. Had to replace many parts. I would NEVER buy a Troy-Bilt again!

Initially had a problem with the delivery. However, the manager took care of the delayed delivery and I was completely satisfied with the remedy. I was even able to upgrade to a 46" from a 42" and I was happy about that. The manager was very apologetic and willing to make the customer happy at all cost. I'm very satisfied with this purchase and I am glad I chose this particular establishment to deal with.

Bought a small Troy-Bilt riding mower because I have a smaller lawn. Working great but need to get use to the turning ratio... can't make quick turns because it can tip out over.

I had problems with this mower from the day I bought it. I have owned it approximately 5 years. It has very few hours on it because it has been in the shop more than it has been used.

Same part has gone bad, twice, the right front knuckle for steering. But not too expensive. Easy to start. Comfortable seat. Easy to maintain, such as oil changes and fuel fill up.

The same steering parts wear out every year and must be replaced over and over. The parts are only available online and are difficult for most people to replace.

Do not buy Troy-Bilt mower especially at Lowe's. Problems with the idle and mower deck after 4 months of mowing. Lowe's will not honor warranty. I will not buy anything else made by Troy-Bilt or from Lowe's.

My 14 year old 24hp Huskee is no longer worth repair, so I bought a 19hp Troy-Bilt to mow about 2.5 acres. It does a great job, however I was disappointed to find I couldn't use any of my old attachments even though both frames were made by the same manufacturer (MTD).

I have had the mower for 13 years and it has given me great service with very little maintenance cost. I couldn't ask for much more. I have had to replace the belts several times and "service" the carburetor. I have kept the blades sharp by sharpening them several times during the summer and it was done very well!

I like the tight turning radius, but it will lock up if turned all the way, so a little extra muscle is needed to turn the front wheels back. It is a single blade deck. The engine does not rev very high like my lawn tractor... it's a put put. The shift knob on the front/rear/neutral lever wants to break off, and the key location is in an awkward place. It was least expensive rider for sale, but for a hundred bucks more, I should have got the lawn tractor.

Original review: July 18, 2018

We used our mower for 2 years without servicing and it performed well. We had to replace a belt in year 3. We really worked it hard on tall grass and over exposed tree roots. We mow 2.75 acres at least once a week for at least 7 months a year. It is very easy to steer and comfortable to ride. The gas cap seems to come off, even though it is ratcheted, after I have ridden the bumpy parts of the lot. We keep it stored in a shed where temperatures can get into the teens in the winter and 90's in the summer. We think our Troy-Bilt Zero Turn was a great purchase and think it will last us many years. We bought it in 2015.

The Troy-Bilt could be quieter but it does the job and is economical to run. I have replaced air filter once a year and changed the oil also. The model I have doesn't have an oil filter.

Great little mower for smaller yards. Saves me about 20 minutes per week. Compact, but does the job well. Troy-Bilt makes some quality products. Best bang for your buck!

Original review: July 16, 2018

My Troy-Bilt is what I would call a ok mower. It's nothing great but for the price I can't complain. I believe the mower is a lower end mower and it was built on the cheaper side. In high grass it performs better than other mowers that are in the same price range or mower class. It does the job but that's about it. Nothing spectacular. I do have a issue when turning wheel real hard. Seems like I have to pull real hard on steering wheel to stop the turn and get the steering wheel straight. Now for the cost I like how much the mower cost me new.

I have two Troy-Bilt Horse 46 in deck mowers. One I have used 2 years and a new one this year. Have had no problems so far with either one. However I have had a Husqvarna 46 inch which had a lot of problems during 2 year ownership bought in 2015. Had two hydro transmissions go bad. Also had problems with the 22 horse engine.

We purchased a Troy Bilt Mustang 60 XP Zero Turn Rider in July 2016. Late last summer of 2017 the lawn mower wasn't working properly so we brought it in for service. There was a piece of casting in the housing of the rear turn and this had to be rebuilt. It took 5 weeks to receive the parts from the factory. In order to cut our lawn, we had to rent a lawn mower at our own expense. Won't purchase another Troy-Bilt and won't recommend!!

I have had to change belt 5 times - deck is too low - cuts beautifully but I usually have to get rider repaired after second cut. My Troy-Bilt is approx 5 years old and used maybe 12 times.

I have owned my rider for 5 years. I have an acre and a half. It is durable. I have never had any problems. With yearly maintenance, it runs well, cuts great and starts every time.

Had my Mustang 50 for 2 years and nothing but headaches. Mower deck is cheap made. Spend the money for a better quality mower. You will be much happier in the long run.

I have had this lawnmower for about 10 years and never had any problems; the only things that have needed to be done is just regular maintenance and a new battery (only once in 10 years). Starts right up every time and does a great job.

We've only used it twice, but so far so good. It rides well, maneuvers well and cuts beautifully. So far we're very happy with our purchase. Lowe's had dropped the price and it was everything we needed.

I bought mine from a man that used it once chained to a pole on his deck. 8 years later I bought it. Put some work into it, it’s still going strong. That was in 6 years ago. Had to replace the deck last year.

First off, the weed eater (Troy-Bilt TB35 EC) has never operated correctly. I spend time and money getting it worked on at local shops and it still didn’t run right. I finally called tech support and the guys I spoke with were arrogant and absolutely no help. So in conclusion, I will never own anything made by Troy-Bilt or anything they’re affiliated with and will always recommend another brand over them.

I have a Troy-Bilt for like 5 years now. It has been a great experience and I barely have any problems with it. It starts right up every time and rides so smooth.

I have never had a bad day on this mower. It starts every time. Changing the v belt on the mower deck is a bit of a job but I have managed it. Also changed the blades twice. I think that is about normal for 10+ years.

Original review: July 5, 2018

Bought an expensive Troy-Bilt Super Bronco 54" riding mower for new house. Used it first season and it was great. The 2nd season belt slipped off. That was the end of the mower. Bought 2 new OEM Troy-Bilt belts. Replaced it according to the manual and Troy-Bilt online help and emails. Belt is NOT tight. Belt will NOT get tighter. Sent it to local repair shop, as there are not any official Troy-Bilt repair centers within 100 miles of me. $400 later and they couldn't fix it. 2nd season came and went. Now on 3rd season, which is not long, live in WNY Snowbelt, and still can't use mower. More contact with Troy-Bilt, cordial but not at all helpful. Pretty much only good until you need to replace your belt. Very dissatisfied and will NEVER purchase another Troy-Bilt product again. And if you google it, it appears to be a known issue/problem.

Purchased end of season 2017 for $1200 plus $75 to deliver from Lowe's. What a piece of crap. Belt that runs blades was stretched after 5 mows of 1 acre and the pully was bent. Replaced belt for another $35 and after one mow popped of pully! Never had this many problems with a new mower! Craft much better product but I was on a budget. Now I have to pay to get the pully fixed! Junk.
