Troy-Bilt was founded over 75 years ago, and since then lawn mowers have come a long way, but they are still a leader in lawn care, gardening, and landscape clean up. You can choose between walk-behind mowers, ride-on mowers, and self-propelled mowers, with the latter being the most popular for homeowners with average-sized lots. Most models allow you to change the cutting height, giving you more control over your results. You can also choose whether you want mulching capabilities and the option to discharge your clippings from the side or into a bag. A powerful engine, large cutting deck, and tight turning radius will all make your lawn care a lot easier.
