Best Overall: Troy-Bilt Super Bronco 54K XP Riding Lawn Mower

Without a doubt, our favourite Troy-Bilt Bronco Riding mower is the Super Bronco 54K XP Ride on Lawn mower that comes equipped with superior 24HP power within its Kohler 725cc 7000 Series engine and it offers the widest mowing path with its 54 inch wide cutting deck. One big attraction here along with the awesome power is the Hydrostatic transmission system for easier pedal speed control we also liked the fact that the monitoring system readout will tell you when it needs to be serviced.

It works great around flower beds, trees and borders as it can do a 16 inch turning radius and you have the option to buy the rear bagger as an optional extra to leave a tidier finish across your yard. It comes with a heavy duty tow hitch to support various gardening projects and workloads and it comes with the anti-scalp wheels to ensure you have a level cut on uneven ground.

You get the electric PTO switch as standard  and it is designed with a triple blade system as well as the wash port for cleaning the undercarriage plus the nose roller also. It can work at a maximum speed level of 5.5mph or  8.6kmh and it comes backed with a 3 year warranty for peace of mind to protect your investment.


  • You have the superior Hydrostatic transmission here for speed and pedal control (rather than the Autodrive)
  • The monitoring system has a readout system to tell when it needs to be serviced
  • The anti-scalp wheels work great to give an level cut on uneven ground
  • There is plenty of power and more for dealing with slopes and difficult mowing conditions with its 24HP engine


  • The price level here is one of the highest in their range
  • There are no commercial warranties available, only a home warranty
  • The rear bagger is not included in the standard price, it needs to be added as an optional extra
  • It’s speed level is a good deal slower than their Zero Turn mowers

Price Guide: $2900 - £3200 @ Troy-Bilt
