Troy-Bilt Space Saver Lawnmowers

Troy-Bilt Lawnmowers Now Save You Up To 72% More Space

Troy-Bilt knows that lawnmowers can be a real space hog come storage time, so they’ve come up with two SpaceSavr mowers to address the issue. In a market where space-efficient designs can be something of an afterthought, these compact, gas-powered mowers fold over to save you up to 72% more prime real estate in your garage or shed. While this has been common amongst the best battery-powered lawnmowers, gas mowers don’t generally like to stand upright.

Troy-Bilt on Space Saver Lawnmowers

Troy-Bilt SpaceSavr Features

When Troy-Bilt stylizes the mowers’ title as SpaceSavr, it probably isn’t too much of a stretch to assume that the main talking point revolves around the line’s ability to take up less space. But, what features give these Troy-Bilt space saver lawnmowers their unique ability to get out of the way?

It starts with a compact footprint. Both models feature a fold-and-stow handle that lets you store the mower flat and under a tool bench. Or, you can store it upright against a wall. It stays secure in its upright position thanks to a rear clip that acts as a kickstand.

Both mowers feature a Troy-Bilt OHV 149cc gas engine. However, where gas engines can tend to leak when you flip them up on their back, the Troy-Bilt space saver lawnmowers feature a uniquely-designed fuel tank and carburetor system that prevents spillage or leakage.

The end result, as Troy-Bilt tells us, is a mower design that takes up 72% less space during storage.

Other Features

Of course, it’s not all about storage. The Troy-Bilt space saver lawnmowers come in two flavors: self-propelled and push. Both use the same 149cc engine with the AutoChoke feature. That means that you won’t have to mess around with priming or choking the engine, making these mowers super-easy to start.

The TB260 XP self-propelled model features a variable-speed front-wheel-drive system that allows for easier maneuvering and turns.

Both models also feature Troy-Bilt’s TriAction cutting system, which isn’t new. It rakes the grass to stand it up, cuts the grass with the S-blade, and further mulches to for finer capture or ejection. The symmetrical deck also helps grass flow through the system. Troy-Bilt gives you the options of mulching, bagging, or side-discharging your clippings.

You can also make quick cutting height adjustments with the dual-lever, 6-position adjustment control. You get one for the front wheels and one for the rear wheels. It ranges between 1-1/4″ to 3-3/4″ cut heights, handling a variety of grass types and terrain.

When the job is done, and before you go saving all sorts of storage space, the Troy-Bilt space saver lawnmowers both feature deck wash ports for quick cleanup. You simply attach your garden hose to the port to spray down the grass clippings from the underside of the deck.
