Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mower for the Money I retired my old craftsman mower, and went shopping for my replacement. After looking thru the specs, reading quite a few reviews, I went to look over the list of three contenders in my price range. I went to each store, looked the mowers over, tried sitting on them, ease of reaching controls, and for smooth operation of levers and peddles. I chose the 42' Bronco mower, and I'm glad I did! It has more horsepower then the other two contenders, cut a level lawn on a hilly piece of land, and my back didn't hurt when I was done! The higher back seat was really nice! The mower has a mow in reverse feature that many do not have, but as it states. Be very careful that no children or animals are near you when using this feature. Oil changes are simple, and a piece of drain hose is supplied in the owners packet. Just slip one end over the drain plus and put a container under the other end. no big messes to clean up with this rider! The 18' turn radius is also nice for a mower of this size, you can just get in real tight to shrubs, trees, and other plants. Am very happy with this rider, and am considering one of Troy Bilt's 4 cycle grass trimmers as my next purchase. Would highly recommend this rider to anyone looking for the best bang for the buck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mulch Kit WARNING, 2015 Bronco manual is WRONG # The mulch kit that is listed in the manual for the 2015 Bronco is the WRONG one. The one listed in the manual is for models that were made from 2010-2014. It absolutely will not fit the 2015. You need the mulch plug that is dated "2012-"

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need parts (mulch kit) I bought this mower yesterday and also purchased the mulch kit. I put the blades on with no problem, but the part that replaces the Shute does not fit. I took it back to Lowes and they said that there was no kit for this mower ( bronco 2015). What am I to do???????????

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Mower I have ever owned. I purchased my Bronco in 2010. Worked great until 2013. The engine blew up. Troy-Bilt connected me to the Kohler folks and they stood behind the engine. I have my mower back and just finished the last mowing of the season. I would highly recommend this mower. It was a good price and takes care of my 2-plus acres without any problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Riding mower, Bronco I have two issues. First issue I have is the mulching kit. The plate blocking the discharge shoot allows grass to build up between the frame and plate. The second one is the battery. It is just able to turn over the motor to start it. The biggest plus to me if the 19 HP Kohler engine. There is power to spare which is a huge improvement over the mowers with the smaller engines. When I hit heavy grass there just isn’t any change in speed or cutting power. I would strongly recommend getting this larger engine. The other big plus is how easy and sharp it turns. This has reduced the amount of trimming I need to do and the time it takes to cut the lawn. A great little mower.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Do Not Buy motor runs good. As for transmission not worth the scrap metal. Pulley on top of transmission to big you can't get the belt off without removing pulley. After owning tractor for 2 years just started 3rd season had to replace trans drive belt and in the process found the transmission is leak grease from gear box. Before buy this tractor do some research from what i have read on other sites allot of people are having trouble with the transmissions. Poor engineering on drive train.The deck is very thin as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Bronco is the best rider ever I recently bought a Troy Built Bronco riding lawn tractor from Loews Home Improvement store in Brockport NY. Having about 3.5 acres of lawn to mow and a few more acres of wooded land and many projects around the yard and only having a zero turn mower from another company ( which I will not mention) I was in need of a lawn tractor to complete the work. After looking around at many different products I found the Bronco to be the best for my needs and in my budget. Once I got it home I could not wait to use it, " I was like I kid in a candy store," I was very impressed at the quality of the cut and the evenness. The one and only downfall that I came across was the no mow in reverse feature. Luckily for me I have very few trees and the need to mow in reverse so can deal with it. I like it so much that I use it now to mow every time instead of using my zero turn Cub Cadet! I really like the fact that it has lights on it because sometimes I get home late and before would not be able to mow with the other mower where now I can instead of waiting to have more daylight. I got a dump trailer with it and I'm always using it for something. I do wish that it would have a larger fuel tank seeing that I would have to fuel it up once while mowing seeing that it takes me about 2 1/2 hours to mow my lawn. Also I think that the belt was not put on correctly because I did have to replace it within the first two months of owning it. I did have to bring it back to Loews due to the fact that the bolt broke holding the drive pulley in place. Which they fixed and delivered back to me at no cost!! I would recommend this mower to any and all people who asking me about what type of mower to buy. I also own a snow blower which is a Troy Built as well. My father owned a rotor tiller built by Troy Built for over 25+ years which made me very impressed with the products that you build. Don't know what else to say except that I would not even think about buying anything else but a Troy Built product and recommend it to anyone who asks. Can't wait till I need another new toy for the yard so that I can test out other products!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Purchase with one exception The mower performs fantastic. The only problem we have is the gas tank is entirely too small and is secured with only a plastic zip tie! The first one we had, which is almost identical, lasted for 12 years. It had a gas tank twice the size of this new one and was bolted in place securely. It is a great mower and we love it...........except for the gas tank which is why I rated it as Good and not Excellent.
