The Troy Bilt Horse XP garden tractor lawn mowers is a bit bigger and more powerful than either the Troy Bilt Pony or the Troy Bilt Bronco lawn tractors. This is thanks to it’s 22 hp engine, a Courage model, built by Kohler. The engine is a single cylinder model with a full pressure lubrication system. The Horse XP is started by a 12 volt battery which supplies the engine with 235 cold cranking amps. This engine gives the Horse a top speed of 8.4 kph (5.2 mph) going forwards. The fuel tank on the lawnmower can hold up to 7.6 liters (2 US gallons) of gasoline.
Thankfully the Troy Bilt Horse XP lawn tractor uses a hydrostatic transmission which means that you never have to worry about gear changing to change speed. The mower deck on the Horse XP is powered by a manually engaged PTO. The mower deck has a cutting width of 42 inches and houses 2 blades inside it’s 12 gauge steel frame. On the leading edge of the mower deck, you will notice 2 small plastic anti scalping wheels. These perform a small but important task. When the lawnmower is traveling over uneven ground, these make sure that the mower deck follows the contours of the ground instead of possibly scratching/scraping it.
The minimum turning radius of the Troy Bilt Horse XP tractor lawn mower is 21 inches. The tractor mower comes with a 2 year warranty to anyone purchasing it new for personal, residential use.
