New Troy-Bilt XP Storm 3090

I just got this one last week. I wanted a John Deere but 400 in price difference and the zero turn on the Troy-Bilt swayed me from the JD. So far it works great and handled the snow we've had with no troubles- even the 3 inches of ice and snow we had. Best new man toy I've purchased for a long time.
My favorite fetchers are the zero turn and the heated handle grips.
The only issues I had so far is one of the bolts in the casing that houses the drive train was broken at the factory. Once I took off the bottom cover I was able to remove it from the inside and put a new bolt in. Sure a lot better unit than my old Craftsman.

Troy-Bilt are great machines.
But I see in your aviatar that you have quiet a Bass collection.
I have a Fender Aerodyne and a Ibanez SRX 300 with a Gallien Krueger RB 700 II with Neo 410 and 212 cabs.

After learning the ropes on my machine I'm really impresses with its performance. With the big snow we had last week it took it like a champ. My only complaint it the fixed light position. Wish it was still mounted on a bracket so it could be moved.

Glad everything is working out, but I have to ask. How do you use it with no handles?

The MTD made Touch-n-turn system is great and you'll never want a machine again without it!

Get a hiker/camper's LED hat/head. Works great if you buy a good brand and a set of batteries will last all winter. The light turns with your head!

Congrats on the new machine. May you get many years of good service from it.

I'm even happier with the machine now. we got 12 plus inches of really wet snow on the ground over night yesterday. I dumped it in second gear and it had no trouble moving the snow. Only 1 shoot clog but other that that it worked perfectly. I would have like the John Deere but for the price difference this was the best choice for me. But I really would have liked it the match my tractor. LOL
