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. Variable-speed control allows you to set the pace. There are three cutting modes—side dis¬charge, 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 and can be purchased here.
