Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

used first time today
received my new rider today and mowed the lawn with it. I found the clutch to have very little travel and had several jack-rabbit starts. Also the forward - reverse lever is very awkward between the legs. It was also very hard to move the lever. Once the knob came off in my hands. I do like the size of it as have a small yard.This is the fourth rider of various brands that I have had. They were all a little easier to operate than this one. But this is the only one that I found that would work in my size yard. If someone is looking for a small rider, I would recommend it.

My husband loves the power steering and it'll be easy to replace blade when needed compared to some riding mowers we've had. The reverse method could have been in a more accessible location, but overall a great buy. Great for what we need for our yard.

I bought this little mower when I moved to a new house. I love it. Workhorse that pulls small inclines, even cut, great turning ability and small enough for me to handle. At 68 and female I needed a mower that I could handle and feel safe on. this is that mower. Great price and simple to assemble what few things needed putting on. But then I have owned many other Troy Bilt products and wouldn't go any other way. I expected an excellent product from this company and I got it.

Gets the job done in 30 minutes or less in what used to take me almost 2 hours. Will definitely add a few more years on my life.Have used for 2 months and no issues at all. Like one reviewer stated, the clutch brake is a bit touchy but who doesn't like popping wheelies in the front yard. I am impressed so far. You will be too if you have about an acre to mow.

We were in desperate need of a new mower - we did a lot of shopping and comparing. We finally decided on this model for quality, ease of use and for ease in storage in our smaller out building. This mower is so easy to learn, easy to use, has lots of safety features and mows like a dream. Our yard, which is uneven in places, looked like a well-groomed golf green ... the mower mulches so well!!! I am, thus far, very very happy with this purchase!!

Great for small lots and gardens
we have a small city lot without hills. this mower works well for our purposes. Mowing in reverse requires doing extra procedures. Also, the clutch is touchy (jerky) so you need to be very slow letting out the clutch. However, it works wonderful for our small lot and lawn gets mowed a lot more than it used to, we have also used it to haul mulch and plants around.

I have used this mower since July and I think it does a fantastic job. I have a small yard 1/2 acre and it has not looked this good in years. I use the mulching attachment and it saves me the time of raking. This mower for its size does a great job, is easy to store and is very durable. I expect to have it for many years. I have, like many customers had to glue the shift knob on but it has stayed on all summer with no problem, The reverse mode for mowing works well it just takes a little getting use to, I would not hesitate to recommend this mower to any of my friends.

My mower turns tight, mows the grass evenly, has enough blade speed to use the bagger attachment and has a top speed to allow for speedy transition from yard to yard.

Ran over a rock and the mower stopped and will not start
Anthony on Feb 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You have a sheared flywheel key. You have to remove the flywheel shroud and flywheel and you will see that the key that fits in the keyway on the shaft is no longer lined up. This is a safety feature to keep the shaft from getting bent if you hit something. Order the new flywheel key (about 4.00) and insert it in shaft and line up flywheel and install flywheel over the keyway. There are many youtube videos that show you how to safely remove flywheel and put in the new flywheel key. Or take it to a small engine repair mechanic who will charge you about 75-100.00 labor.
Does this mower cut grass while in the reverse position ?
Cindy on Oct 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: According to the manual, page 19 figure 5-1, the blade will be engaged in the reverse position. You must move the selector to reverse caution mode and press the yellow reverse button to do so.
