by Jose, Product Expert
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

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.

The Troy-Bilt TB30R rear engine riding mower offers a great alternative to a traditional push mower. Mowing the lawn in hot summer heat isn’t 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.

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

This Mower Could Use A Few Improvements
I have had to have the bar that extends to hold the blades replaced twice because if you hit a small dip in your lawn it will hit the ground and bend the blades and bar to the tune of 300.00 each time.

I can only mow with the mowing height of 4 or 5. Like another gentleman said the knob on the shifter kept coming off and being between your legs you can't get any leverage to change shifter.

Luckily my son after listening to me complain crafted a piece out of metal to slide over the... more

Should've Listened
Received mower as promised, was easy to assemble, however, it didn't start, tried calling mowers direct and they referred me to Troy-Bilt. After numerous attempts to get it started, I was given the number to a dealer who would provide warranty service. The mower has been at the dealer/service provider for a week and still no word.

Never will I buy another mower on line and never from Mowers Direct. I was assured that these mowers were extensively tested before they were sent out by... more

Unbalanced
The pros:
good power, nice weight over drive wheels, cuts well.

The cons:
not enough weight to power - pushes through turns instead of turning. Because of the unbalanced weight distribution it has a tendency to pop a wheelie - every time you let off the brake.

From the cutting deck forward, it is very lightweight VERY lightweight.
From the cutting deck back, it is substantive and feels higher quality.

Realize, I have a hilly 1/2 acre - with a LOT of landscaping and trees. This... more
Pros: Price, Light Weight
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use, Poor Design - Unstable, Poor Design - Difficult To Manuever

MY yard has about 2 manicured acres , which for 20 years my Honda Harmony took care of quite well.but finally gave up. To replace it the cost had gone up 7 times .After researching so many mowers my head was about to explode I came across this Briggs n Stratton powered RER NOT made by MTD and also, not offered by the Independant dealers for there desire to get you to buy the $3200 entry level mower, though they can order you this one most will.NOT tell you this is even available.

Perfect For City Lots
I purchased the TB 30 R for my husband on father's day 2015. He's 72 years old and mowing with a push mower was becoming to much of a chore in the heat of summer.

We discussed hiring a lawn service. Now that he has the troy build, I think he mows more than needed

Cold Start Nightmare!!!!
Once you get it started it's great but out of the box and every mow it takes 5 minutes of cranking to get it started and you can call to trouble shoot and after you have been on hold with 3 different people for 15-20 minutes each they will give you the name of a repair place.... They have no trouble shooting advice so don't waste your time... It is a great mower after you get it started and once it is warm will fire up every time but I am highly concerned about wearing out starter and battery..... more

Excellent Service
I purchased a 42" mower last year and it made a mess in our back year blowing dust everywhere.

Decided to purchase a 30" rider and have been pleased with it.

The delivery was on time, it was easy to assembly, have been pleased with the cut. Would purchase again from Mowers direct.

Fits Thru The Gate
This mower does a nice job cutting the grass, I am pleased. What a pain putting it together. I am glad I had a lot of wrenches. The shift knob comes off like other people have wrote in reviews. Probably need epoxy to fix the problem. I ordered the mulching plug, the mower came with one, now I have 2.

Don't Need A Walking Mower Any More!
I had two mowers. A large tactor for the yard and a walking mower for trimming. This little mower is bigger than a walking mower and smaller than a tractor. It maneuvers great! I got this to replace my tractor and I found out I did not need the trimming mower anymore. I have had this mower 5 years and it runs great!

All I do is change the oil. I mow an acre once a week. I did buy the mulching attachment because is sprayed grass everywhere. I found the mulch takes care of leaves... more
