Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plenty of power, I like the mulch feature, We bought this pony in early june and we love everything about it. It is so easy to switch from forward to reverse mowing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good craftmanship Purchased product and it came with steering column not installed right the gear teeth dont engage and you can only turn right. After less than six months of ownership the belt already popping off. Call the local warranty dealer and they are not responsive been trying for 2 months to get them to work on it. Had to break down and take it to a shop and pay out of pocket on a brand new mower. Will not buy a troy bilt product again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Reccuring Steering Problem I bought this mower over a year ago because I had owned a Troy-bilt push mower which never gave me a hint of trouble. But I am very disappointed in discovering what I believe to be a design flaw in its steering which causes it to lose the abiltiy to turn the mower to the left after a few uses. I have had it in a Troy-bilt approved service department twice for the same problem and it continues to happen with normal usage. I can't really recommend the Pony to anyone. And not really willing to chance buying any other of the riding mower models. Moving on to another company's product in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ever Used My wife and I both use our Pony, and have had zero (0) problems with it in 5 years. Oil changes are easy and quick; controls are user-friendly and the adjustable seat is a plus, since my wife is taller than I! Cuts evenly and the deck is forgiving, or tolerant, of a mild 'bump' once in a while. Great tool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not very happy I bought this tractor and it arrived on July 3 2019. It started the first time and will not start again. Your tech gave me a repair place to call that services your products and they told me they could look at it in November. I am returning the tractor to HomeDepot and hope to reorder a new tractor after refund goes through. Hope I get one that works this time. Very disappointed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Product I have been using this mower for four weeks and it is very good. It is missing a few features that I am used to with my old mower but it performs well despite the very few missing features. I would definitely recommend this machine.
