Where to Buy

The Just One Hand® Operation lets you guide the two-stage snow blower with one hand, freeing the other hand to adjust the chute and pitch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Died after 30 seconds. Do not buy and do not buy f I bought this rather expensive snowblower from Lowe’s on October 6 but did not add oil and gas until December 2 because I didn’t want it sitting filled with gas until I needed it. Before starting I added Troy Bilt oil and regular gasoline. Pulled the starter and it started rough. It ran for 30 seconds, seized, and died. The pull start is frozen and the electric start made a moaning sound. I contacted Lowe’s and for a fee, they will pick it up and repair it. Or, I can buy a brand new one and eat the $900 I spent on this machine. Lowe’s was of no help. I am hoping that Troy Bilt will replace this clearly defective snowblower, which has never been used and ran for 30 seconds before it died.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features! The equipment handles deep snow with ease and the heated grips come in handy when it is windy and snow is blowing back at you.When moving and able to change chute direction without stopping is a great feature that helps get the job done quicker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gets the job done FAST Light or Heavy my Troy Built Snow Blower does the job. The headlight lites my way when it’s dark. The heated handles keep my hands from freezing. And the one handed drive keeps me going without having to stop and adjust. I love it so much I clear my neighbors and the street walk for the block.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple to use and smooth. BUT... This is my 2nd Troybilt Blower Ive owned. I currently have the 2860 w the Composite tires. The issue I see is there needs to be some more weight within the hub of the tire to create less spinning on icy surfaces. If there were a bolt on weitht system to purchase , I would recommend this to everyone. I am currently working with a local welding shop to create an adaptable weight for each inner tire on my blower. The concept I have will replace existing bolts that hold the wheel on w longer bolts and thus I will have additional weights on each wheel . I do not have a photo of this yet but will send one when i am finished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product for the price I bought this at Lowes in the fall of 2017 and it is the best snow blower I ever had.I have owned sears craftsman, cub cadet, and Husqvarna and they do not compare to this Troy-Bilt--easy start 2nd pull --great traction with airless tires etc. My driveway is 2200 sq ft and we live in Northern NY and this Troy-Bilt had no problem removing snow!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Snowthrower, Really goes the distance! I have had this model for 6 years now. I had one issue with it a few years back where if I engaged the wheel drive fully, it would not go. If i engaged it half way, it would work. I took it in for repair at a local "Troy-Bilt Service center" and they fixed it, but the next season it was broke again. I took it to another place, and it got fixed right. The secret is to have it serviced every year!! I live in central NJ and we have had a few harsh winters with some hefty snow falls and this machine has not let me down!! Even some heavy wet snow, it handled it no problem, as long as you go slow and let it do the work!!
