Bottom Line

The Troy Bilt Mustang 46 checked out in terms of cutting ability, durability, and ease of use. Like most Zero-turn mowers, the controls do need some getting used to but it is fun to ride once you become familiar with it. A small number of customers have indicated that the wheels needed better traction sideways on slopes. Going downhill or uphill provided no issues. Overall the mower meets expectations for a zero turn mower backed by a powerful Briggs & Stratton engine.

Tips for Troy Bilt Mustang 46

  • Check tire pressure and adjust according to manual specification for better traction. Tires are sometimes overinflated for shipping.
