Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lasted 10 minutes. No kidding. I bought this mower new the day before yesterday. It was mostly assembled by the very nice people at a home hardware. Started it up without problems, and was delighted at the four wheel drive performance. After about a hundred feet of mowing, the machine made sounds like it was chewing rocks, and lost drive at the rear wheels. The owner's manual is totally inadequate. It doesn't even include how to adjust cables. I couldn't find a service manual on line or in Troy Bilt parts. It was not possible to contact a support person, not by phone and not by chat. These are seriously bad signs. I want to return this terrible machine and get my money back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mower The independent front and rear trans levers and with both engaged makes it a 4X4 so much power climbs hills and moves across soft ground with ease. makes mowing ditch area a breeze. Now I want a Troy-Bilt XP Grass Trimmer 18" Straight Shaft Gas String 27-cc 2-Cycle TB2044XP to be complete, the cost of the mower was expensive so that will have to wait..No regrets with this machine and the replacement self propelled Troy Bilt lasted more then 13 years trouble free. TB490 XP 4x4 Self-Propelled Mower with the Honda motor is a work horse like no other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TB490 XP 4x4 Self-Propelled Mower My son was needing a mower and so was I. We agreed to share one and went to look. He came home with the TB490 XP 4x4 Self-Propelled Mower. This mower has been so dependable. As I am getting older I sometimes find it hard to start the mower but not this one. Starts first time every time. Plus with it being self-propelled it is much easier for me to us. My last husband always told me never buy anything other then a Troybilt and I can see why.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I've only mowed a few times, But The Troy-Built built name was one of my reasons for purchasing. I purchased the mower with 4 wheel drive, Honda engine, high rear wheels. The mower wasn't the cheapest one on display. I purchased the mower because the lawn at my summer cottage is very hilly, and I am too old to push a hand mower up hills by myself. There is no adjustment for the speed of self propelled drives or the engine. The rear wheel drive forces me into a slow trot to mow. Front wheel drive is a mowing pace I can handle but seems to not have a lot of traction. I'm not comfortable using both drives at once. If there is a way of adjusting the engine speed I haven't figured it out yet. Putting the rear bag on the mower requires exact positioning. When the bag is removed there is always a big chunk of grass still in the mower. I hope I will be happier with my purchase as I continue to use it. The one feature I do like is the garden hose attachment to clean the mower after use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It Love it. I have used it 3 times since taking delivery and each time gets easier. I am 74 years old with a heart condition so mowing my yard make a self-propelled mower essential. I have just over a 1/3 acre yard and what had been taking way to long with my old mower has become a much easier task. Is the 4-wheel option a necessity, no but it sure makes the job easier, specially in wet or sloped areas. I am a big fan of Honda motors and Troy-Bilt equipment, put the two together and I figured I was getting a winner. So far I am glad I made this choice.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy this mower. The mower performs extremely poorly. I get angry every time I use it. Big mistake to purchase it. PROS: 4X4 works well. CONS: Heavy and difficult to maneuver and does not lift grass for a good even cut. Considering selling at a big loss so i can go back to enjoying mowing my yard.
