Works Great!!
I read the other reviews and think that the reviewers must be totally inept. This mower works just fine. Plenty of power....cuts clean...

And whats the big deal about changing a belt? Belts break. Fact of life. Changing them is simple..thoughtless.

For 1,400 bucks you cannot do better.

WE are becoming a wussified society....incapable in general.
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, Exceeded Expectations, Reliable

Streched Cable Deck Engagement
I used it all last season I love this mower. Just not happy with the cable to engage belts, it has no adjustment on length of cable. My cable stretched this season it will not engage need to buy new one, geesh guys! I just removed the whole deck and replaced the belt thinking it was the belt that stretched since the cable is a fixed length but not so . I will rig the cable to be shorter . But its a beast otherwise.

Bad Deal
I recently purchased one of these mowers from Lowes. The first time I used it, it threw the drive belt. It did this twice before I gave in and sent it to a warranty repair center. They repaired it by replacing both belts but billed me for $136.00, telling me that Troy-Bilt would reimburse me for the charges.

I called the Troy-Bilt factory trying to get an explanation but all they would tell me was that they would call the warranty repair center and get back to me. I'm still waiting. I have... more

Not Recommended
When the drive belt breaks, you are stuck. Then you have to worry about loading the mower on a truck, taking it to the shop, waiting for them to put a new belt on, and your out money. The design makes it impossible to change the belt yourself without special tools/knowledge.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price
Cons: Unreliable, Have To Take It To Shop Just To Change The Drive Belt

Fire R And D Department
Brake pedal design for over 6 ft person so reaching full stop for short people impossible since seat likes to tip due to incline of mount. Removing hand from steering to slow or stop in a turn is not what I call safe for weaker persons. Maybe a foot pedal would have been a better design since most of that assembly is on right side of machine. The NTSB requires headlamps to remain on, why this machine. I have no reason to have on highway after dark, unless getting beer. Maybe you should try... more
