A lawn mower that’s got it all

The Family Handyman - - STUFF WE LOVE -

Troy-Bilt be­gan mak­ing steel-wheeled ro­totillers in Troy, NY, more than 60 years ago. And it con­tin­ues to churn out high-qual­ity yard and gar­den equip­ment. The TB240 self-pro­pelled mower is no ex­cep­tion.

The TB240 fea­tures front wheel drive and big, 11-in. wheels in back, a com­bi­na­tion that makes it easy to ma­neu­ver. It’s pow­ered by a high-per­for­mance Honda en­gine with an Au­toChoke start­ing sys­tem, which means no prim­ing, no chok­ing and no need to pull the start­ing rope more than once. Vari­a­ble­speed con­trol al­lows you to set the pace.

There are three cut­ting modes—side dis­charge, mulching and rear bag col­lec­tion— and the 21-in. deck can be eas­ily ad­justed to cut grass in height from 1-1/4 in. to 3-3/4 in. The han­dle can be ad­justed to three an­gles, so you can mow in com­fort re­gard­less of how tall you are.

The TB240 re­tails for about $330. To learn more, visit lawn­care.fam­i­ly­handy­man.com.
