The model number on a Troy-Bilt riding lawn mower can be found on the underside of the seat. The model number will begin with 13 or 14. The model number on a Troy-Bilt riding lawn mower can be found on the underside of the seat.
The self-propel system on a Troy-Bilt lawnmower is relatively simple. It uses a small transmission connected to a pulley, which in turn connects to a pulley on the engine`s driveshaft. It uses a small Kevlar belt to connect the two pulleys together. The biggest issue with the self-propel system is belt slippage.
How to adjust the cutting height: First move the adjustable handle on the left hand side of the mower to the desired height. Then, using a board or other sturdy object to prop the attachment up, adjust each front castor wheel to the corresponding height position.

Model & Serial Number Location

The model and serial number sticker on a Troy-Bilt Edger is located on the rear frame of the unit, near the handle bars.

They work by engaging a speed control lever (sometimes part of the handle; sometimes a separate bar or shifter) that causes the mower to move forward. The operator doesn`t have to push the mower, he or she simply walks behind it, guiding it around the yard. Self-propelled mowers can be front-, rear- or all-wheel drive.
Always Mow at 3 Inches or Taller

Often the highest setting on most mower types is 3 inches. Mowing the grass at 3 inches or taller will prevent diseases, promote deep digging roots, help the grass conserve water, improve turf density, and improve turf color.

By using a mower with a bagging attachment, keeping the yard clear of grass clippings becomes a breeze. Leaving grass clippings on your lawn also can lead to clumps of grass being dragged inside your house by the kids and pets, so you`ll be avoiding some indoor cleanup as well.
Most of the time, mulching your clippings is the best option. You should bag your clippings if the grass is tall, leaves are covering the lawn, or you need to prevent disease and weeds from spreading.
