does this mower have a key start

Asked by mower August 21, 2020
2
Answers

Yes.... a tiny 12v battery which included sends power to electric starter - - - a Built-in but, Also Tiny Capacity Alternator attempts to maintain the charge in this Battery. b) - Of course, during long storage, including Winter, etc., One must appropriately service that 12v Battery externally.

How does gear drive differ from hydrostatic?

Asked by Steve August 7, 2020
2
Answers

STEVE = {'HOW' does Gear Drive differ from a 100% or Full-hydraulic Transaxle?} a) - At different times, this 'FORUM" does NOT prefer detailed or long-winded, albeit technically-appropriate, explanations ... will NOT pass their Censor Board, in fact. b) - Let us "TRY' a medium Explanation? c) - This "GEAR" Unit is actually a Misnomer, in that this "CVT" actually DOES NOT feature nor HAVE any "GEARS at all... d) - Imagine Two deep "V" Pulleys, opposed to each Other, connected by a special Belt. d) - As the special belt travels into the deepest of (1) pulley, the opposite has that Belt ride upon the outer edge, causing a "SLOW' forward traveling speed. e) - Consider the opposite condition .... Belt now rides along the top of that original Pulley, making the Tractor's forward travel at a faster rate.... zero 'GEARS' involved whatsoever.... Tractor's 'Foot Peddle' simply determines which path or depth of "V" the special belt travels. f) - In contrast, a 100% or fully Hydraulic Transaxle - I.E. = Very Popular 'K-46' by Tuff-Torq .... all of the speeds as well as Direction of traveling is accomplished via Hydraulic Fluid being "pumped" thru the internal valving.... vaguely similar to our Vehicles, except that They also have & use a Torque Convertor. g) - 'CVT' Units cause the Tractor-Mower to be offered for about $300 / each under the final pricing of the SAME Unit with a 100% Hydraulic Unit.

I wish I could review this product that was shipped to us based on what it actually can do. Howev...
I wish I could review this product that was shipped to us based on what it actually can do. However, I had it shipped to home as it was bought online. It was quoted as arriving 7/2 but then moved without notice or reason to 7/3. The time quoted for it to arrive on 7/3 was between 7am & 9am. This kept slipping throughout the morning to finally 1:30 pm. The driver opened his truck to reveal the tractor which was tilting half on and half off of a skid with the item not being tied down (took picture). Driver then moved the skid and tractor to the back of the truck to be moved to ground level. I made a comment that I would like to review it's condition given how it was when the gate was lifted. Driver agreed and made note. Driver left stating on the receipt that customer still had to inspect the unit. Once I removed the surrounding crate structure and moved the tractor off the skid I found the tractor and the seat along with the manual which was attached to the back of the tractor within a plastic Ziploc bag. What I did not find included were the steering wheel and the ignition key(s). Two pretty important parts to successfully operate the vehicle. I called the driver back since he had called me prior to arriving and let him know these parts were missing (and possibly more). He informed me that is all that was with him with regard to the shipment and to contact Home Depot. Calling Home Depot, I spent another hour plus with them on the phone trying to see what could be done. To add insult to injury I was transferred multiple times with hold times sometimes over 15 minutes. They finally came back stating they could not get a hold of the manufacturer to see what could be done to accommodate this issue because they were on holiday. Had this delivery taken place on it's scheduled date then the office would have been open and we would not be waiting until Monday to have some sort of resolution. I had planned to use the mower prior to July 4th to clean up for company - this is now obviously impossible. The worst part, several things had to go wrong for this to happen so there are multiple points of failure with this delivery. The only thing I can say as a positive is that the Home Depot customer support did what they could after the fact. However, none of this would have happened if that original date was honored and they checked what was shipped prior to shipping it. It's disappointing on several levels. In truth, I don't even know if I want this mower or a purchase through Home Depot related to mowers after this experience. I will see what happens on Monday but this has been a very disappointing experience.

Down by our pond I was pasted being able to cut it by hand. It was just too much, I couldn't do it.. Now with this mower I can cut the hill again without any problems. I have a smile on my face again. This mowet is big enough to cut my yard yet small enough to get in the places I need. I love my mower.

This Troy-Bilt 36" lawn tractor is just the right size for our 1/4 acre lawn. It has all the features we need. The controls are easy to use except for mowing in reverse (by design) you must turn key and hold reverse mow button. Not a good practice to mow in reverse anyway! The smaller size of this mower suits us fine as it doesn't take up a lot of space in the garage. I can mow our yard in about 30 minutes and it looks great. I've only mowed 2 times so far but the lawn really needed mowing. The oil dipstick is easy to reach and it's good that it has an oil filter and heavy duty air filter. Yes, I'd recommend this lawn tractor.

The perfect Riding Mower for My 1/2 acre
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am up in age and have a 1/2 acre yard. This 36" cut lawn tractor with mulching blades is perfect to help me save wear and tear on my body while allowing me to continue to enjoy maintaining my own property. It is small enough for easy storage but strong enough to pull a cart to move yard debris to the front of my property for disposal. Starts right up with the twist of a key! The 18" turning radius is amazing. The walk behind Troybilt brand mowers I have owned have always served me well. Troybilt is a brand I trust. Now I have graduated to a comfortable Troybilt ride. This 36" Pony Riding mower is perfect for my needs.

TRASH!!
Had it for 2 months and used the mower twice and the battery stopped working properly .It cuts off while riding and i keep having to jump start it. Spoke to warranty n they said the warranty on the battery is only for a month . Told me i can take the entire lawnmower to a place that is over a hour away and let them see if its a issue with the lawnmower itself and not the battery. But i dont own a truck or anything large enough to take a lawnmower anywhere. N a hour away is ridiculous. So disappointed. $1300.00 n the battery lasted all of 2 months ..
