Q: Do I have to buy an extra kit to mulch?
by Hugh Barger from Tennessee on March 03, 2014

A: Hugh - The TB30R rear engine riding mower would require a 19A30013OEM mulch plug in order to mulch your clippings. This model does come with a 3-in-1 mower blade that will mulch or bag equally well. Click on this link to view the mulch plug: mulch plug

Q: Jose,
I need a mower that will fit through a normal gate. The gate is 30 inches wide. Will this mower fit? Thank you so much for your help

by Melody Stephens from Nebraska on May 15, 2013

A: Melody - sorry, but we do not sell any riding mowers that are small enough to fit through a gate that has an opening that is 30 inches wide. The smallest opening that any of our riding mowers will fit through would be 32 inches.

by John from Arkansas on May 10, 2013

The Troy-Bilt TB30R rear engine riding mower offers a great alternative to a traditional push mower. Mowing the lawn in hot summer heat isnít much fun, so riding your mower instead of pushing it around your yard can be a welcome and relaxing option.

The Troy-Bilt TB30R will help you give your yard a pristine, golf-course-quality appearance. This mower not only cuts the grass. In the bagging mode, this mower sucks up grass clippings, leaves, and pine needles from your lawn.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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.
