Troy-Bilt 190cc 21" Cut Self-Propelled Gas Mower
(New Port Richey, FL, USA)
We purchased our Troy Bilt 190cc 21" Cut Self Propelled Gas Mower almost five years ago from Lowe's Home Improvement store. We had just bought our first home and really had no idea what kind of mower to buy - and not a whole deal of money to buy it with!
The people at Lowe's were extremely helpful in assisting us with finding the right mower for the right price. We don't have a very large lot, so spending money on a riding mower or even a high powered “Cadillac of mowers” would have been completely unnecessary.
Also, we live in Florida, where during the winter months we face a severe drought every year. Having the option to remove the rear bag and let the mulch clippings land back on to our lawn was a very important feature as the mulch clippings put nutrients back in to our yard.
We have crab grass, which can be extremely temperamental in harsh weather- hot or cold. The mower is self propelled, which is also another feature we did not want to go without!
My husband grew up in Vermont with an acre of land and a push mower, so he was definitely over that! Although I would have preferred a turn key start type (I am very short and sometimes have trouble reaching the pull cord and holding down the handle), the mower always starts on the first or second pull, which is a Troy Bilt guarantee. We also like that it has a 9 position height adjustment.
After our first run with the mower, we noticed that we cut the lawn a little too short and were afraid we were going to burn it. After some adjustments, we got the blade set at the perfect height and have had an eye-pleasing lawn every since! We would definitely recommend this mower.
