Rated 1 out of 5 by from Belt drive This is JUNK . It eats belts bad. Save the headache and buy a hydraulic mower. BuYER BEWARE. Sure it works great for the first year maybe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Never Again Troy Absolutely the worst zero turn ever. 104 hours and its broken again for the 3rd time. PTO doesn't disengage and blades turn regardless. Key switch went out already and now I'm replacing my second battery in less that a year since delivered. Replaced a twelve year old John Deere with this garbage. I wont keep this thing another season. HORRIBLE PRODUCT. TERRIBLE SERVICE. Troy Built. You lost me as a customer for good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Broke after 5 mows Operated and cut well but 2 months (5 mows) later the darn thing broke, transmission went out. Cost $40 to have it picked up and hauled to the repair shop. Not what I expected from an upscale riding mower. Could have saved hundreds of dollars on another brand; thought I was buying quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Machine I have had my zero turn for several years and like it, overall. It has cut my mowing (2+ acres) by half from my previous mower. However, two things I would strongly suggest: 1) larger rear tires with more 'knobs' to provide better traction. If there is any mud buildup on the tires, or if you on on a side slope the tires spin or slide easily and tear up grass. 2) please add a tow ring or connection on the back...for 2 reasons: first would be to enable pulling mower out of mud when it gets stuck (see #1, above), and to allow its use to pull a cart or wagon. This would increase its versatility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful Product Read the review in Consumer Reports and that convinced us to get this Trot-Bilt Mustang. It is better than advertised, performs great!
