I bought this Bronco to replace my 2006 77T Because the cost of replacing its rusted out deck is prohibitive that is if you can find one.I'll remove the deck from the old one and it will be used as a yard donkey for hauling dirt and debris in my yard cart. I prefer the controls of the 2006 model over the new one. The foot pedal speed control and clutch on the new one takes some time to get used to. The ability to mow in reverse on the new one is a plus.

Overall this may be a good mower but I didn't get 2 hours of runtime from it before the weld on the gearshifter broke. For me it wasn't that big of a deal because I do know how to work on machines & have a welder to reweld the faulty part but on a brand new machine I shouldnt have too. I'm guessing that is not the case for many who are considering this product. Also I had mine shipped & it came crated on a tractor trailer after I told the frieght company Home depot used a tractor trailer could not get to my house, I ended up having to follow the driver to a parking lot & slide the tractor off into the back of my pickup truck then unload it by myself once back at my home. Hopefully its a good machine in the long run but a really bad start so far.

Had this thing about a month now. Ive mowed twice with it and each time i have to put air in the front tire. It goes completely flat in a week. No nails, screws, or anything in the tire. Very frustrating. Other than that i love this mower.

Great-Deal Mower
A top-value mower. Sold out at all local stores and no online buys. SOLUTION: Order via an in-store Customer Service rep (Home Depot, etc.) FREE DELIVERY. Be aware the Delivery Date you get may be up to a month away. But, my 19hp Bronco arrived 9 days later. A few items to be aware of: 1. I ordered the 19hp Bronco because my lawn has a few hills; this extra Hp helps v.s. the 15Hp model. 2. The Bronco arrived SUPER WELL CRATED (See photo). It is NOT easy to get it uncrated; 2 guys are recommended to do this. 3. CAUTION: The seat installation is tricky. See the Owners Manual for how-to instructions to avoid my "Seat Bottom PROBLEM" (See photo). Slide the two lower white fitting into the metal base plate BEFORE you hand-tighten the upper bolt; If the lower white fittings pop into the seat, all is not lost. Toss them around inside the seat until they are near their respective holes. Then get a long nail or wire (with a small hooked end) that fits into the hole in the fitting. Use this to lift the top of the fitting into its hole. Finally, slide the tips of two butter knives under the sides if the fitting, and pry it up. NOTE: Align the side-groves of the fitting properly before you do the "pry-up" step.
