I saw a Troy-Built 33" mulching/side discharge mower at the lowes today, and was wondering if anyone had any info on these about he warranty... I think it would be good from what i have heard for someone like me starting out, thanks for your opinions

Troy Built

A friend of mine ,who does mostly landscape maintenance,uses one on some of the few properties that he has to cut the grass. He says he likes it. Personally I don't care for the all plastic front wheels. They look like they would break.

I went to their website and it says it has a 3 year warranty. The front wheels don't look very good, but I wouldn't think they would cost much to replace. Troy Built

That troy built is a POS. For a few hundred more you could
buy a 32" eXmark metro with Toro steering.

At a toro commercial dealer or a toro distributer.
Tell them you want a price on a fixed deck 32 with a 10.5hp Briggs.

Not sure that this is an old proverb, but here goes:
