      Q:How steep a hill will it go up?
      by|May 12, 2024

      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello Dave. All of our residential mowers are designed and approved to safely operate on slopes up to a maximum of 15 degrees of incline. A mower will safely handle slopes when starting at the bottom of the slope and mowing side-to side, rather than up and down. Thank you for your question.

      by|May 13, 2024

        A:  Q: How steep a hill will it go up-Dave ? (5/14) Usually, these extremely-basic, elementary, "stick-shift" Riding Mower won't "DO" any HILLS at All = tiny Turf-Tread Tires simply slide / slip-around and/or Minuscule, 500cc engine just gives-up and "dies."

        Good Lawn Mower With Abysmal Service
        The mower arrived with the steering wheel and seat damaged. Also the parts to mount the seat are missing. I have called their support line multiple times over several days and have never been able to speak to a person. If you ever need support then be prepared to hear "Thank you for waiting. Your call is very important to us. Please hold for the next available agent." every 30 seconds. After about 90 minutes on hold they will hang up on you.

          My little pony and me.
          I ordered mine March, 22nd, 2024. Only 6 days old. Best time of the year to buy one. Order from the store online. The seat only has one bolt hand tighten one the others just go in the slots. Called customer service and believe me Troy Built stands by it's name. So please remember that. It mows in reverse in center key position. Glad I bought it, I really am. Thanks to The Home Depot and Troy Built for an amazing tractor.

            New- not realy unused-maby
            I should give the tractor closer to a 5, and customer satisfaction closer to 0, so we’ll split it and give a 3. When the lawn tractor arrived , it was fully assembled filled with oil and half a tank of gas. It also had a heavy coating of dust and dirt and no manuals of any sort. Somewhere along the line someone added a Cub Cadet battery to the mix. Tag states build date of 01/2022, This is 9/2023, making this mower almost 2 years old. After cleaning, I gave it a test drive found the engine surging badly at anything but full throttle. The gas was so old it didn’t even smell like gas! Fresh gas and a little carb cleaner did not help. I ended up having to physically scrape the deposits out of the carburetor jets to get them cleaned out. As for the mower, it now runs good, and cuts good. No issues with uneven cut. Gets the job done with a minimum of fuss. There are no wheels on the deck, so you need to be careful in uneven spots to keep from scalping. I added a deck wash connection which works well. Overall, it does what is supposed to do, and at a price a lot less than some of the others.

              Ahhh .. Huston, we have a problem!
              It's a big step and a big purchase for me. Was super excited because at my age, and as a Desert Storm veteran, I just don't want to be pushing a mower anymore. It shows up and it was obviously a return. I included a picture of the paperwork that came with the mower. I did not write on it, Home Depot knew it had been returned! I paid the regular full price and expected a new unit. My disappointment is immeasurable and my weekend is ruined.

                  Dead in less than 200 hours
                  Lasted about 5 seasons on our .4 acre yard. We have a sloped backyard. I believe this caused the engine to be starved for oil and had a catastrophic failure. Probably ok for a small flat yard. A quick search revealed this to be a weak engine with know problems.
