Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower
Since you have already added oil and gas, and this is a new mower, see if you can locate the 'dead man' switch on the mower. There should be a handle on the mower that must be held down when you try to start the mower. It will follow the shape of the larger handles, just about a third of the size: you can see it in the picture you used for this post. Attached to it is usually a cable that actuates a braking mechanism that will stop the mower's flywheel from turning. This handle will swing down against the handlebars of your mower before and then during normal operation. Try holding this safety down and try to pull again.
--Hope this helps.
