Troy Built Push Lawnmower Complaint - Poorly Manufactured - Crank Shaft Blew Up
I purchased a Troybuilt Lawn to replace one that I had about three years. Unfortunately, I purchased a new one on 10/2008, and it started shaking, and blew up near the crank shaft on May of 09. I had taken out an extended warranty, but had it taken to one of LOWES repair shops on the initial year warranty that came with the mower only to be told that it was our fault that the mower did not work was because it had little or no oil. We had just put oil into the mower and always have been attentive concerning both the gas and oil. Now I am stuck with two Troy Built mowers that do not work. And the warranty on the newer one because the warranty happened to note that they would not be liable for crank shaft problems. It sounds to me that TROYBUILT knew this would be a default and instead of producing a mower with longevity, they prefer consumers by a new mower to replace a problem that should not exist. I will never purchase another troy built again. And I will not accept a warranty.
I see I am not the only person that has experienced this problem. FIX IT!!! Who has money to buy a new mower every 6 months to 2 years.
