Good mower, bag can be difficult to deal with.

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Troy-Bilt 21" 6 Hp Walk Behind Rear Bagging Mower Tb:

This Troy-Bilt self-propelled lawn mower with a bagger is a really good mower. I've had it for a few years, along with another brand, and this is the one I prefer to use. It propels itself well, although it does have a bit of a problem with a relatively steep hill in my yard. That one area requires more pushing, but it's a small area and easy to deal with.

Performance
The lawn mower works well. It doesn't go too fast when the self-propel lever is down, and it cuts evenly.

Handling
This is a fairly heavy mower, especially when the bag is halfway full or more, and it's a bit on the larger side for a push mower, but it maneuvers well.

Durability
I've had this mower for several years and used it fairly heavily and have had no problems with it.

Safety
The safety stops work well. I don't see any safety issues.

Ease of Use
The mower is easy to use except for one thing. The bag can be difficult to remove and then put back on. There is a heavy plastic flap covering the entrance to the bag that does not stay open on its own. So you have to use one hand to hold that up and then the other to pull the bag off and then put it back on. There have been times when I've had to get help with the bag.

Engine Power
The engine power is good, except for the steep hill.

I'm very satisfied with my Troy-Built Mower!

By 

from New Carlisle, OH

Comments about Troy-Bilt 21" 6 Hp Walk Behind Rear Bagging Mower Tb:

After a year,  I am pleased with the performance of my Troy-Bilt mower.

I especially like the mulching capability, as I prefer to leave clippings on the grass for added nutrients.  But I have used the bag attachment when the grass was higher, and found it easy to get on and off.

The mower is rugged and works well, even over some uneven spots in the lawn.

The only problem I've had is when some pine twigs got into the engine-certainly not the mower's fault.

I would highly recommend the Troy-Bilt!

Troy-Built Lawn Mower lets you walk behind it with ease.

By 

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Troy-Bilt 21" 6 Hp Walk Behind Rear Bagging Mower Tb:

Finally got my wish granted, which was this Troy-Built walk behind Lawn Mower. It wasn't so much this type or brand I was interested in until I got it & finally able to use it. I merely wanted a lawn mower than worked & worked well. By that I mean I needed a lawn mower that could be easily started & pushed as I walk behind it. I had two other lawn mowers that broke down or kept giving me a hard time when it came to starting it. When I did get it started I was to tired to cut the grass from pulling on the cord so many times just to get it going! My kids bought this Troy-Built Walk Behind Lawn Mower that I am so happy & please with because first of all it's from them & second of all it really does a good job on cutting my grass without the hard effort of trying to start it, or push it. Even the settings on it are easy to do & the after results were really great because this lawn mower did an excellent job cutting my lawn. There is no grass flying up in the air nor getting all over me or my clothes either which is another big plus! You can't go wrong investing in one, that's for sure! From what I understand the price isn't that bad where it is affordable.

troy built lawn mowers are easy to use

By 

from Level Plains, AL

Comments about Troy-Bilt 21" 6 Hp Walk Behind Rear Bagging Mower Tb:

I bought my troy built lawn mower for my new house. I have a medium size yard and find this more is easy to handle. It starts very easy ususally in 1 pull of the cord. It has conventient high adjustments for the deck. One height adjustment sets two wheels on this mower.. Other mowers you have to adjust each wheel at a time. It has a mulching attachment and trimmer bag. The mower is fairly light weight, not hard to push. Can be easily cleaned up with a hose. The mower was easily assembled from the box. It did not require any tools to assemble the mower. The mower was moderately priced. I feel like I received a bargain for the mower that I picked. I would recommend this mower to my friends and family. For anyone that has a medium size yard are a lot of push mowing to be done in their yard. The blades cut the grass evenly and even handle the tough dandelion  weeds that was in my yard. I hope that anyone who needs a new mower will give troy built a try.

Troy-Built Walk Behind Mower..get it done quickly and completely

By 

from Cleveland, OH

Comments about Troy-Bilt 21" 6 Hp Walk Behind Rear Bagging Mower Tb:

**It was a sad day for me when my old mower kicked the bucket. I was sure I would be paying a bundle to replace it; the new mower had to last me a long time. **

**In addition to the financial consideration, I needed a mower that had a mulching function since the city where I live had enacted restrictive rules on disposal of grass clippings.**

**I trudged into my local home improvement store with a chip on my shoulder. I assumed with the money I had to spend I would be able to afford an inferior mower by some unknown manufacturer. **

**As I strolled down the aisle and looked at the shiny, gleaming mowers, I literally went from the less known models to what I would consider the top of the line; Troy-Built. I was familiar with the name because of numerous fantastic pieces of equipment I've seen.**

**To my surprise, I turned over the tag to find that the thing not only mulched, had an easy to use bagger if needed, and a price I couldn't believe.**

**This mower has far exceeded not only my expectations of a product made by this manufacturer, but of any mower I have owned or used. **

**It starts up with the first try. Bagging if desired couldn't be easier. The quality of the cut and the mulching function are superior. Best of all, to my surprise after one full season of mowing and mulching with this mower, my lawn is actually more healthy looking than in the 18 years I have lived here.**

**I would highly recommend a Troy-Built mower to everyone.**

This mower excells in mulching and saves hours of yard work.

Comments about Troy-Bilt 21" 6 Hp Walk Behind Rear Bagging Mower Tb:

**Troy-Built Walk Behind Lawn Mower - **

**Southern Residents unite! The Troy-Built walk behind Lawn Mower - is one I would recommend to persons who do not want to bend over and rake up lawn clippings. This mower which is a quiet as a mouse can be at times, starts easily and with the proper settings can make your lawn look clean and well managed.**

**The rapidly spinning blade helps to cut and recut your clippings into a fine easily degradable fertilizer that actually HELPS your lawn grow! And saves you the effort of bending over with lawn tools to pick up what's left! Also, it  eliminates the left over mulch of leaves, sticks, and other yard material waste that is easily used by the lawn to keep it healthy and green. With proper watering of course! **

**With its 5 gallon tank, you use less gas to mow an entire lawn, in usually less than 1 hours time. So you get more bank from your tank!**

**Most of the settings allow you to instantly adjust the height of your cutting when needed, or with a simple tightening of the adjust knob, you can lower or raise how high or how low you wish to cut. This is a great feature and can actually extend the times between when you cut if set properly. **

**The cost of this wonderful tool is fairly reasonable to the average lawn mower person. It is still available to this day even though I came into its purchase from**

**my father who really didn't pay that much for it. **

**For those of you who still like clippings, there is a bag attachment on the side for easy catching and disposing of them.**

**Troy-Built Walk Behind Lawn Mower - Simply out classes all lawn mowers!**
