Looking for informed opinions on Troy Bilt lawn mowers. Have the opportunity
to purchase a couple of different models on sale. Both are in models with
Honda 160cc motors. One is a push the other is a self propelled.
Honda makes good motors, and 99.9% of a lawn mower is the motor.
Troy Bilt, as a brand, is pure shit, and I wouldn't buy anything with their
name on it. Most of their stuff is made by MTD, and calling them shit is an
insult to shit.
You probably won't go wrong with one of their mowers, especially if the
price is right. The self propelled is a bit more complex, and eventually it
will need parts replaced. You'll have a hard time doing that with this
Still, most likely you'll see a decade or more of good use.
I hope you change the oil once and awhile.
First home we owned, had a new neighbor in a corner house who previously
lived in an apartment for his entire life. He bought a new mower, filled
it with gas, went on his merry way cutting the gas until the engine
seized due to no oil. Brought it back, got another one, did the same
thing. Third mower was the charm. He was not a native speaker of
English, doubt if he understood the instructions.
