Rated 5 out of 5 by from Half a year of commercial use My spouse wanted me to leave my career in which it was the norm to miss holidays and special occasions. As a result I started a lawn and pool company. It is my sincere hope you find my review helpful. My TB240 allows me to mow areas where my zero turn and lawn tractor can't access. It mows nice and level- making nice stripes on certain lawns. The self propelled function is very positive and doesn't need any assistance in order to propel itself. The included blade holds an edge and stays sharp for several cuts. It has a fuel shutoff valve which is a nice feature that allows one to run the carburetor dry at the end of the season. This will help preserve the carburetor for the next season. The TB240 always starts on the first pull, and runs strong every time. It is the first piece of equipment Ive ever owned that's powered by Honda. The engine's construction looks of the highest quality. The deck height adjustment feature is convenient and easy to use, utilizing one lever for each axle, instead of for each individual wheel. The only dislike I have of the mower is the drive wheel pinions as well as the front axle housing are of plastic construction. Time will only tell how long they will last. The deck wash feature is nice, however physically tilting the mower and washing it directly seems more effective. I love my mower and have been working it hard for almost half a year. Its a faithful mower and will buy another in a heart beat. As a satisfied client, I am looking forward to my next troy bilt purchase!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unreliable! I bought this mower with a Honda engine brand new at Lowe’s. The engine died 29 days after purchase. Oil was fine, gas was fine, spark plug wire was connected. I have no explanation for what happened. I was mowing flat terrain on short grass on a sunny day and the engine just lost spark and wouldn’t restart. I called Troy-Built and they wanted me to drive 60 minutes to the nearest Honda authorized engine shop. Feeling no confidence, I returned the dead mower to Lowe’s since I was in the 30 day return window. This was my first Troy-Built purchase and my first Honda purchase, and I guaranty it will be my last for both.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good mower Overall the mower is good, however I have had to make several repairs to it. Because of the plastic mounting on the front end screws have vibrated loose and one screw caused the plastic to break. The other repair was to reattach the drive belt after it had come loose, (takes a bit of work to get at it but easy to repair). Still the engine is great the drive is strong ( I have a slight hill) and the port to clean out the bottom is a real plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower Super mower. This is the 2nd one of these I have purchased, the 1st one lasted 10 years and was running great when I sold it at a yard sale. This one did have a problem starting after about a year and half that wound up being a coil. Simple enough to fix. There was an issue trying to have Lowes assist with any repairs. I admit I didn't have the store receipt but I did have my Credit card bill. They wouldn't accept that. The mower is great. I also recently purchased a TroyBilt weed eater with the electric starter motor to crank it. I wish I could use the same starter motor to start my mower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Engine I bought this unit two years ago and have been generally pleased with it. It starts easily and can handle heavy duty Saint Augustine grass that I have failed to cut for a couple weeks. My only complaint is the carburetor. The engine will begin to speed up and slow down as a result of a carburetor that is causing the engine to run lean. The first time It did, it was supposed to be under warranty but Lowes charged me to fix it claiming that it had bad gas. I use non-ethanol gas I, Buy a gallon at a time and a treat it with Sta-Bill so I know that the gas is never more than a month old when it’s used. Within two weeks of receiving it back it was doing the same thing again. Berryman’s Injector Cleaner headed to the gas seems to help. Now it only speeds up and slows down when it’s about to run out of gas. By the way I worked as a mechanic for 10 years I know what phase separation in ethanol gas is and I can rebuild a carburetor on an engine like in about a half an hour .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Machine We bought this because our rider bit the dust. Wasn't sure if this would work for us or not, but we figured we would give it a try. Boy were we surprised. This machine has every thing we needed....easy starting---1st or 2nd pull. Easy to use---self-propelled makes it effortless. Easy clean-up-- the hose attachment is really nice. Great job Troybilt.
