Troy-Bilt TB210B Self Propelled Lawn Mower Review

This Troy-Bilt TB210B SP Lawn mower comes designed with a 21 inch mowing deck and a variable speed self-propelled support plus it is typically one of the lower priced options to buy within the Troy-Bilt walk behind gas self-propelled Lawn mower category. It comes with a Briggs and Stratton 550ex 140cc engine which means it has the ReadyStart system so there is no need to worry about chokes or priming for that matter.

It operates with the forward wheel drive system rather than the RWD system and it offers the 3 in 1 mowing in that you can choose to mulch, use the side discharge or use the rear grass collection bag. You get 6 mowing height settings that range from 1.25 inch to 3.75 inches for longer grasses and these are controlled with the dual lever either side.

Another feature it offers is the wash port to help clear out the undercarriage and both the front and rear wheels are 8 inches in diameter. While it’s not the best SP Troy-Bilt lawn mower we have seen, it does offer a lower price point so savings can be made here plus it comes covered with their 2 year warranty.


  • It offers a lower price tag than many other SP Troy-Bilt lawn mowers
  • Assembly is quick and easy and the variable speed self-propelled support helps to get the mowing jobs done a lot quicker saving you time and effort
  • You have multiple options in your mowing work be it mulching, rear collecting or using the side discharge
  • As it is smaller, it is lighter to work with and load into your vehicle when needed


  • You get a shorter 2 year warranty here where other SP Troy-Bilt lawn mowers have a longer 3 year warranty
  • We have seen several negative reviews elsewhere across the market which was disappointing – approx. 80% of buyers recommend it while 20% of buyers don’t recommend it
  • The engine power of 140cc is a good deal lower than others in the wider range that offer 163cc, 190cc and 223cc so its ability to deal with tougher mowing conditions is a lot less
  • The front cover could be better and more robust to deal with rough conditions

Would we buy the TB210B Troy-Bilt self-propelled lawnmower? To be honest we are only 50/50 on it. While we didn’t come across any major issues during our review, we did see several negative comments and reviews from other buyers in the market which is a little worrying.

Yes, it does offer the lower price tag which will save money for people seeking the lowest possible price but our preference would be to recommend the more powerful TBWC23B Troy-Bilt lawn mower instead. The main reasons are it has the RWD, a wider 23 inch cutting deck and the more impressive B&S 875 Pro 190cc engine for dealing with difficult mowing conditions.
