Where to Buy

The Troy-Bilt TB290 ES XP walk-behind lawn mower features an easy-starting push button electric start 159cc Troy-Bilt OHV engine with Check, Don't Change system that eliminates oil changes. By simply checking the oil each time and topping off as needed, this system reduces maintenance time and having to dispose of old oil. True variable speed front wheel drive transmission will turn more easily around landscape features and obstacles. Equipped with the TriAction cutting system, it features a rake bumper to lift grass upright, a specially designed blade for a finer mulch and a symmetrical deck for superior grass flow, eliminating clumping. The TB290 ES XP self-propelled mower comes with three options to dispose of grass clippings, including side discharge, mulch or rear bagging capabilities.  Dual lever height adjusters for easy changes in cutting height, plus a deck wash adaptor to help clean the underside of the deck, helps you care for both your yard and your mower more easily.

TB290 ES Self-Propelled Mower with Electric Start is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 23.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work properly I bought this a month ago and the electric has never worked. I hate taking a brand new mower in for repair. It's very heavy and difficult to transport. Let alone finding a repair shop.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely disgusted I bought this mower in June. I unboxed it, put it together following all instructions and it would NOT start, either by the electric starter or by pull! I finally called the warranty and they sent me to a company that is to fix/service Troy-built. After looking at this mower, they were told it was unrepairable! I've taken the mower back to the company were I purchased it. They have made phone calls but here it is August and I still do NOT have my money back!!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice features I've been using this mower for about six weeks. I like the front wheel drive but not the drive belt adjustment mechanism. It's difficult to get it adjusted for various grass heights. It tends to pull to the left when mowing and the engine seems to be underpowered when mowing taller grass. It's a nice looking mower and the electric start has works good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unique Applications The top three benefits; 1. Homes in my neighborhood are on small lots and the mower is relatively quiet and relatively more neighbor considerate and friendly. 2 The mulcher blade is very enviromentally beneficial and effective because I can raise the deck height and chop up Fall leaves that what would easily fill twenty large lawn/leaf bags 3. it is very easy to collapse the mower and store in anout a 2x2x1 foot box during the off-season in NJ Go Troybilt. Best regards, Don

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Lawnmower From Experience I bought this model several years ago and been extremely happy with the performance and tech support pertaining to the TB290. Maintenance is minimal because of the lawnmower design. I loved this machine so much that I have given it to my father for ease of grass cutting and he enjoys it for every summertime lawn care. Parts are very easy to obtain through the online catalog as well with helpful staff on the phones to assist you with any questions. I upgraded to the XP490 and satisfied with the purchase. You can't go wrong with Troy-Bilt !
