    how would a troy built 33 in 9 hp be for a starter mower. Its only 600 and comes with a bagger. r they reliable or should i just wait and buy a commercial in the spring.

    no i would wait, your not going to need it in the winter anyway. troy built is for the home owner, you want commercial quality stuff. for 600 it isn't commercial. 9hp??? don't waste your time or money. wait till next season

    If your paying $600 for it, take that $600, put it in the bank or a CD for 3-5 months and then youll have a bit more along with some extra you could save. Keep about $1000-$1500 or so and get a good used 32" or 36" commercial mower. I would not waste my time with that troy-biult mower. JMO
