When our old mower pooped out on us after 15 years of service, my husband and I were faced with the task of replacing it. Since we are on a limited budget, it was necessary for us to make certain that we were getting a mower that meet specific criteria, as well as, being affordable. Our journey began with a trip to Lowe's and Home Depot.
The salesmen there were very helpful and informative, but we still could not make the final decision to purchase one of their floor models. My eighty year old father has a landscaping business and offered us his expertise to help us with our decision. He is and always has been a "Troy-Bilt" customer.
After researching information on Troy-Bilt push mowers,and of course relying upon my father's good advice, we decided upon a Troy-Bilt push mower. Fortunately for us the Troy-Bilt Dealership was less than 5 miles away. Our criteria for our selection included several factors.
First, the mower had to be easy to start and operate. We were pleasantly surprised to find that any member of our family could start up and operate the mower with no problem. Secondly, we wanted a mower which worked well for our lawn maintenance. Once again, the Troy-Bilt proved true to its claim of excellent performance.
Finally, we wanted to make sure that we were able to afford the mower on our budget. The Troy-Bilt was within our budget, and we feel that we got what we paid for.PROS
