You're pulling against the engine compression. It's to be expected.

Does this one work well on banks?

Asked by caroline April 25, 2021
3
Answers

Hello . . . yes, this TB130 model mower will work very well on a variety of ground types. Assuming your term "banks" refers to sloping ground, just remember this is a push mower that you propel so cutting uphill will be more difficult than pushing down hill (or sideways on sloping ground).. The only limitation on any mower's effectiveness on other than level ground will be the danger of "high-centering" the blade on a crest or ridge. If you encounter this situation, simply adjust the wheel height to compensate and stay out of trouble. Enjoy!

You need to pull on the handle bar and pull those out until it aligns with the screw holes at the bottom, near the body of the lawn mower.

The bag is such a hassle
The lawnmower itself is great but the bag, is the worst. I have to physically pick the bag up to back up the lawn mower. So much that I was backing up the lawn mower and caught the bag under the lawn mower. Who can I call? Please help

Left front wheel bracket bent.
I got this a few days ago and it seems like a pretty good mower. However, I got it all put together, gas and oil in it only to realize the bracket to the front left wheel is bent so the wheel rubs on the deck. I tried taking the wheel off and bend it back myself but I couldn’t get it. It seems like the mower I got was either dropped or the bracket was tightened too hard when they built it. I also thought I was missing a part in which I contacted Home Depot about and they told me to contact Troy Bilt because they don’t supply that part which is annoying since I just spent almost $300 buying it thru Home Depot. Turns out the piece was in the grass collector bag where the other same pieces were loose in the box. Just seemed like it was packaged poorly. This is the first push mower I’ve ever purchased but overall just a horrible experience and do not recommend.

Rear wheel height adjustment handle rubs against rear right wheel
Just purchased this yesterday and assembled this morning. Real wheel hight adjustment handle rubs against the right wheel. Comparing my pic to the pic on Home Depot site, they are very different. Rear adjustment handle is too short for the size of the wheel. Very frustrating. Obvious lack of quality control. Wrong part or just bad changed design. Haven't used yet since considering returning it to HD.

Excellent for the price, reliability, and simplicity.
This is my second troy bilt mower with the honda engine. The other still works fine, after 8 years of use on two properties both being about .7 acres. Went ahead and got a second one to keep from having to load one up every time I needed to cut at the other property. I do not use the bag attachment, so i can't remark on that aspect. Although i did replace the hand nuts/wing nuts for the folding handle bars. Due to the nylock part being worn and they would work loose. Also I prefer the old manual choke system over the new one. The manual choke will one will fire off on the first pull every time. This new auto choke set up takes two and three pulls at times. I have not had to do anything to either mower other than end of season maintenance. Blow out filter, change oil, sharpen blade, and grease the wheel hub/axle.

Best mower at this price point.
This is a solid mower, as in, when you are using it you can feel the stoutness of the assembly as a whole. A lot of mowers have the floppy loose handle that has 6" of play up and down, or the plastic shrouds rattle nonstop, or the wheels are loose all the time........it feels like they're gonna fall apart at any moment. Terrifying, I know. This mower has none of those issues, and along with the Honda motor it feels like a very well balanced professional-grade machine right out of the box. I'm extremely happy I made this purchase and you will be too.......unless you are cheap and decide to go with the Briggs & Stratton version, Dont be cheap, be happy.

Just received this lawn mower today 3/22/21, and we have a problem with the rear height adjustment lever on the back high wheel. The lever is hitting the rear tire and cannot be adjusted unless we go through the hassle of removing the rear wheel. We tried to bend the lever away from the wheel, but we were unable to do so. See photo.

Terrible product
I do not recommend this product. Due to grass not collecting in bag. The bag fits into the slots and the flap is supposed to close securely to allow grass to collect in the bag. It did not. There was a 2 inch gap which caused the grass to blow into my face and all over me. I asked a neighbor to take a look and tell me if im doing something wrong or didn't attach properly. They confirmed it was on right but machine must be defective. Home depot gave me a really hard time returning product but was finally able to. I needed to purchase a new mower so i went back and checked out a different model. I was not confident in this brand so I picked a different brand and far more expensive product. I am hopeful the new one will be better

Great lawnmower, good amount of power and bad feature for grass collection is a major plus!!! I looked at a number of options before buying this one and so far this lawnmower has not disappointed me. Easy to install and cuts grass nice and neat. It also has a Briggs and Stratton engine which is way better than Honda.
