Hey Gang, I would like to get opinions on the latest Troy Built that Lowes sells. If any one has bought one in the last couple years, or new last fall or has any information on them I would like to hear it. It has the 171/2 Hp. Briggs and Stratton engine and from what I have heard and read on this engine it has some trouble with the valves. I have several in the line up to repair with the same engine but no Troy built's,,. Most are murray, Pulan ,Task Force. However they all have busted rods or piston's this was caused by low oil, I believe. thanks Paul.
