I have a cheapie MTD 13.5hp riding mower, my hard is odd shaped, with lawn
taking up about 40' by 60', and I've had my MTD for over 2 years now, it's
never failed to start (with the exception if I dont keep the battery charged
in the winter since I dont usually mow in the winter since my lawn sits
pretty green but doesnt grow in the winter). The thing cost me like $750.00
at Lowes, and it's been strong since purchase.
I've had some Troybuilt products in the past, like my Horse Tiller, that
never failed to start, never got a tuneup or oil change and lasted me easily
7 years until I sold it (just didnt need it anymore), also my Troybuilt lawn
and yard vac/chipper is another quality product, been with me about 6 years,
no tune ups, no oil changes, and works as strong today as it did when I
So overall my experience with Troybuilt products has been good, but I dont
think I'd spend $2500.00 on a TB rider mower compared to a Lowes or Home
Depot $650 to $800 rider.
Just my 2 centavos.
