Troy bilt a well built machine for a great price.

I can't recommend this product as is. In the future, if I ever buy another ride lawnmower, I will never purchase one that does not have anti-scalping wheels or at least a kit to upgrade the deck to include anti-scalping wheels. I had to find anti-scalping wheels on ebay and drill holes in my brand new deck in order to add anti-scalping wheels. Unless the ground under your lawn is perfectly flat, a ride lawnmower with a wide deck is going to scalp your lawn (see picture attached). This is especially noticeable when you have Bermuda grass because only the top 1"-1.5" of Bermuda is green, beneath that the grass is brown so scalping looks really bad. The lawnmower runs great and starts easily, but the scalping is terrible. How much could it possibly cost to add an upgrade kit for this ride lawnmower? I mean really?!?

I would love to review this product but unfortunately it came with no steering wheel and NO KEY. It has been sitting in my garage unusable for almost 2 weeks. The only answer I can get from the manufacturer and home depot after about 10 cumulative hours on hold is that they are shipping the missing parts but they can't tell me when? So currently I have a shiny new lawnmower in the garage and my lawn is a foot tall. If I sound irritated its from all the time spent on hold with no resolution in site

Buyer beware: There is NO gas pedal. I didn't realize when ordering online that you control the speed only with a lever on the dash (pictured), didn't think to check if it came with a gas pedal because I just assumed it did (my fault for not paying closer attention when reading about the mower). When using the dash panel control to set the speed no matter how slowly I let off the brake it would always lurch forward. That was an issue because it offers poor control of the mower and i almost went over the curb a few times which could have seriously damaged the blades. I returned the 42" Pony and bought the Bronco-46X instead which cost only a little more. I do not recommend this mower.

The Troy Bilt mower is easy to maneuver around trees & shrubs. It is also fun with the wagon I bought to give the grandkids rides.
