Troy Bilt Lawn Mower Oil Review yearof20. Troy bilt lawn mower oil

Why is the oil in my new Troy Bilt mower look charcoal grey color?

I changed the oil in my new Troy Bilt TB836 mower the first time after about 5hr. of running. When I drain the oil, it look very dark charcoal grey, almost black. I read from somewhere othe people had experience that. Yesterday I change the oil on my tiller which has B S engine also. The oil looked normal for few hours running, quite clean. The mower suppose to have a Quantum engine, cheapy moderate use rating only. Do I have a case to tell my big boss ( say wife) that I need a pro mower. Thanks

I assume you installed quality oil after the drain.

Run it another 10-20 hours and keep an eye on it. It should be normal.

The first oil change in any engine is subject to all sorts of oddities.

As for your wife and your business decisions. Does she physically and/or materially participate in your business. Does she run the show?

If not, what business does she have playing a role in any of your business decisions?

Love and marriage and seeking the approval and support of your wife is all good and fine. But your marriage is one thing and your business is totally another. So it is best that you draw a distinct line of separation and keep it that way.

Some of the henpecked are sure to insist I am being rude. And I’m sure the landscaper chicks are sure to be all over this.

But I am not trying to be rude, ugly or sexist. I’m just stating that unsolicited unexperienced input on your decisions can be unhealthy for your business.

And one of the best ways to avoid that is to not involve or include your spouse or family members in your direct business decisions such as this. Being married has no bearing at all on what factors into wise business decisions. Buy what you need. Make investments that yield more profit, more take home pay, and more production so you can spend more time with your family.

The fact you are bringing home some bacon and have time to enjoy it with them is all they need concern themselves with.

“If you place a low value upon yourself, rest assured. the world will not raise your price.”

“The bitterness of poor quality lingers on long after the sweetness of cheap price is forgotten”​

Troy-Bilt TB210 Review. An easy to use lawn mower

troy, bilt, lawn, mower, review

When you have a very large lawn that needs to be taken care of, and you don’t have the option to use a corded electric model and don’t want to charge your mower every 60 minutes, best gas lawn mowers are the way to go. Unless, of course, you’re living in a state where gas lawn mowers are banned, such as California.

Troy-bilt TB210 is a 21-inch self-propelled gas lawn mower. It has a front-wheel drive for easy traction, could be used in residential areas, has the mulching capability.

It’s one of Troy-bilt’s entry-level gas lawn mowers that replace the old TB200. It’s one of those models we call 3-in-1. It can cut the grass and leave the grass clippings on the ground as mulching. If you don’t want extra mulch or mowing a sports field, you could collect the grass clippings in its catcher bag or side discharge.

Troy-Bilt TB210 Maintenance

Apart from standard oil changes and gas refills, keeping your TB210 ready for the next mowing session couldn’t be easier. Simply get the grass clippings off your mower using a garden water hose and you’re done. Now that’s something you can’t do with any of the robots or electric mowers I personally love and use most of the time.

Before flipping over your TroyBilt for maintenance, make sure the motor is not running when you’re checking or replacing the blades.

This model also includes an integrated wash system, which means you can connect it to your water hose and it’ll clean the entire deck without even you need to flip it over.


As with many other gas mowers, Troy-bilt TB210 too, has a pull cord for running the motor but in my time with it, it always ran the first time I pulled its cord.

It has variable speed options, which means you could adjust the self-propulsion engine according to your walking pace. It’s very convenient when you like to mow the garden at different speeds.

Who sells troy bilt parts

Parts for all Troy-bilt products including push gas mowers, ride-on mowers and trimmers are available online at TroyBilt store. They also have hundreds of local stores available across the US.

Troy-bilt push gas lawn mowers are powered by 4-stroke engines, so therefor, any type of Standard SAE-5W30 motor oil is safe for these devices. Please don’t mix oil with gasoline to avoid damaging the engine.

Troy-Bilt walk-behind mower on HD site. “Check Don’t Change Oil

I saw a Troy-Bilt model on the Home Depot web site, model TB210. The engine is Troy-Bilt branded, and the description includes “Check Don’t Change Oil”. It does not look like the BS EXi engines. I think (from looking at pictures) that it looks like a Kohler XTX engine, which says it never needs an oil change. Is anyone familiar with this engine, and is this the 1st year that Kohler is also saying no oil changes needed?

That is not a Kohler. That is a “Troy Bilt Genuine Engine,” which is actually a Powermore engine, used on all MTD units. It is a 159cc unit. Most engines are saying that the oil does not need to be changed. Powermore, Briggs and Stratton, and Kohler all claim to have that feature. I have a Troy Bilt TB 230 with a Briggs and Stratton “Check and add” system, and thus far, I have not changed the oil, and it works fine. I am going to change it, however. It is an extra safety precaution that is inexpensive and easy.

I had a Lawn boy AWD push mower from 2016 with the Kohler or, “Choler” as It may be called XTX series engine and it too advertized no oil changes but I changed it anyway, no reason not to IMO.

This trend to minimal maintenance engines bugs me in that when it wears out in 5 years or so and goes to the dump which then fills up the landfill etc etc. But I have to say it started with one or two pulls always, even after winter storage with stabilized fuel in it and had a neat exhaust note which kind of reminded me of a miniature version of an old Kohler K series I believe a neighbor had in a John Deere 110 gardenn tractor when I was a teen in the 1980′

Back on the grandparents farm our mowers had that feature too. But it was called a worn out engine and also had the side benefit of keeping flying insects away from you during use due to the blue haze in the air surrounding you. :sidelaugh

I agree with the skeptics above: Never change oil is a crazy idea as far as I am concerned. I’m just not buying it.

I had a pair of 435HP Detroit Diesels in my boat, and looked into bypass oil filters, distinct from and in addition to the standard full flow filters on all marine and auto engines. Essentially, the by pass filters clean down to about 2 micron particles while the full flow were limited to about 10 micron. No oil change was required, and that arrangement was approved by Detroit Diesel, but you still had to have the oil analyzed periodically.

Just topping off the oil usually kept enough oil supplements in the engine to meet lube specs, and this was useful and economical in continuous use applications such as marine ferries which sometimes are not shut down for months. For my own recreational use, and changing my own oil annually, even 7 gallons per engine, it was not cost effective. I did not want that ‘dirty’ oil sitting in my engines overwinter even though I kept heat on.

This ‘no oil change’ sounds like it could be a plan from the same geniuses who sold us ethanol in fuel. more expensive, less energy, than gasoline and drove up food to boot.

If you are too busy to change engine oil, you probably shouldn’t have an engine. Hire somebody to do the work.

What Does SAE Stand For in Oil?

SAE is the acronym for the Society of Automotive Engineers. They are an organization that sets global standards in a variety of fields related to transportation and aerospace. It is the responsibility of the SAE to ensure that automotive oil is standardized throughout the world.

Yes. As previously stated, engine oil made for cars and trucks is the highest quality oil on the market and it works optimally with nearly all four-stroke engines.
