I just posted this yesterday in the original thread.

Anyone know if this is a good mower? It has a Honda engine which is great, but I think it's a 2015 model and I can't seem to find any reviews on it.

It was $260 out the door after tax..

I have this mower and it is not very good. It is hard to crank. Lots of pulls to get it going. And it too heavy. I had some other problems with it and had arguments with the company about the warranty, only after I got Lowes involved it it get resolved. I don't have the Honda motor. I will buy a different one next time.

We just bought the TB regular push mower with a Honda and it cranks on the first pull.

I didn't get the honda engine. But my problems with Troy Bilt were about the drive. They would not have paid if I had not gone back to Lowes and told them about it.

How can you say you have the same mower when yours don't have Honda engine? If it is a different motor then it is not the same mower. All reviews claim that it start is just one or two tries.

Very good with the 50$ off coupon. Use your Zipcode for the first set of 5 R's and a random number 1-9 for the last R, you should be fine.

is this a better mower than this?

Husqvarna?HU675AWD 149cc 22-in Self-Propelled All-Wheel Drive 2-in-1 Gas Push Lawn Mower with Kohler Engine and Mulching Capability $299 - $50 = $249

http://www.lowes.com/pd_538027-63...facetInfo=

Although I missed the previous deal they come out to about the same price... I need a solid mower asap and would like to stay in the $250 range.

Be sure you want a front wheel drive. I bought one and returned it, it was too hard to maneuver.

yep, thats my favorite model. i crank up the rpms, set it to mulch, and run at 10mph, pushing then pulling. the self prop ver on the other hand was a piece of crap. had a tiny gear box for transmission.
honda motors are great to speed up the throttle. they dont burn out.
clarification: the self prop that i tried out was not a honda motor, unlike this thread. the manual one was though.
