Troy Bilt 3 way mulcher

My lawn mower is a Troy bilt 3-way mulcher. I bought it about two years ago from Lowe's. My first choice was a similar model that included electric start, (love my gadgets), but after one or two uses, it didn't want to start, so I downsized to one called easy start.
You still have to pull start it, but it is easy. I like this particular mower because I have a choice of mulching the cut grass, bagging it, or sending it out the side.
The engine on this mower is a 190cc Briggs-Stratton and it is most certainly self-propelled. Sometimes, it worked so well, it went a little too fast. It is very easy to use and it leaves my lawn looking so nice when I am finished.
When I first bought it, my son used it most of the time until he went away to school. I was worried that due to my health that I would find it difficult to keep the lawn up, but this lawnmower made my job easy. I am nowhere near a professional landscaper, so I was pleasantly surprised.
Once I started using the lawnmower regularly, I wondered why I didn't buy such a good one years ago. In the past, I always used Snapper lawnmowers, which is a quality brand, but expensive, so I always bought used ones that were not self propelled. When I was younger, that was manageable, but I can't do it now. Not only is this lawn mower easier to use, but the price was reasonable.
I believe I only paid 325.00 dollars for it on sale. I would recommend this mower to any one who is able to walk behind it.
