What gauge wire is the wire for the headlights ??

Asked by Andrew October 18, 2020
1
Answer

Andrew = ? What gauge of wire for Headlights ? a) - Replacement wiring should take into account the fact of the Hood Assembly having to be periodically raised / lower as One checks the oil, etc.. b) - THAT relatively-frequent 'Motion' dictates a replacement wiring of a slightly-heavier gauge that what those lights require because of the need of mechanical endurance, rather than 'amps' for lighting the Lamps. c) - Available at Home Depot in their Electrical Department, as well as any auto parts outlets, plan upon 16 gauge..... even 14 would NOT be considered as prohibited. d) - Although NOT done within the original harness, consider having a ~ ~ 1" long section which would be created by loosely-wrapping around any small, 1/4" diameter object, to create a "flexing section" where the motion of opening / closing that hood occurs.

I have the same problem with it. I am sorry I purchased it and am having other issues. I cannot get the company to answer and Home Depot is no help either. Sorry to be so negative.

How much weight can the seat handle? I am considering buying it for my Dad who is about 290 lbs.

This is actually a response to eli2, obviously NOT a "pro". When a man is 6'4", 290 is NOT "very, very heavy". I never stated, neither should some idiot (actually, I have a different term that HD didn't like) who does not know him, that he has "challenges".

what is the difference between this 42 and the 42x

Asked by james July 13, 2020

Answers

The Bronco 42 inch riding mower has a 19 HP Briggs & Stratton engine. According to Briggs & Stratton's website "85%" of these engines are assembled in the USA using USA & "GLOBAL" parts. They did not share where the other 15% are assembled. On the other hand the Bronco 42X mower uses a Troybilt 547cc engine, which is made by Powermore Engines. The Troybilt engine has a forged steel crankshaft, which rides on a roller bearing assembly, an iron cylinder sleeve, fully pressurized (uses an oil filter) & a low tone muffler. My new Troybilt Pony 42X riding mower has the Troybilt 547cc engine. It is more powerful than my old Pony that has a 17.5 HP Briggs & Stratton engine. I also have a new Troybilt push mower model TB105 with a Troybilt 140cc engine. I am impressed with both engines! Other than engines the Bronco 42 & 42X are really identical.

. I only gave it a 3 due to the process of getting it. Lets just say it was not one of my best purchase experiences from the Home Depot The tractor does what it says it does, it seems to work well is easy to use and cuts the grass well. its comfortable to drive, the ability to mow in reverse is a plus, and it only takes a couple of minutes to figure out how to get it to do it. Its very easy to steer and maneuver around obstacles.

I paid a bunch of money for a mower that will mow in reverse instead it stalls out and will not work in reverse with the mower option it will go into reverse as long as the blade is not active so thanks for letting me pay a bunch of money for a feature that I don't get on my mower or thanks for screwing up and delivering the wrong mower I'm sorry giving me the wrong mower I chose to pick it up

The riding mower looks nice, runs fine and cuts fine. It has some great features (mowing backwards) My issues with the mower is more of a design issue, more than anything. Good luck changing the oil without spilling out most of the used oil onto the engine bay. Both the oil plug and the oil filter are in horrible spots.

Really really like this mower
Customer review from troybilt.com logo
I am really enjoying my Bronco 42 auto. Saves me a lot of time and labor. Using with a tow lawn trailer saves a lot of time. Started with first time maintenance and care. I even waxed it twice. I'm going to take of this, I plan on having it a long time. It will be well maintained. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Poor quality product. I used it once and had it stored for the winter. When I went to retrieve it out of the shed this summer the tire was flat. This was the same problem I had with my old mower. When I called TryBilt for support, they called it normal wear and tear. I spent over $1500 for the same problem I had last summer. The tires are not like normal vehicle tires and are extremely difficult to replace.
