Rated 5 out of 5 by from my 2nd horse My first horse was purchased in 1974-it lasted and was still running when I bought my new one in 2007. The Troy horse is a big tiller so trying to use it in a very tight space is not easy-needs enough room to turn around at the end of each run. My older tiller had a stronger shift lever, never had a problem with it-I already bent the heck out of the new one and had to replace it. The wheel seals on the newer one are no better than on the old one-they still tend to leak and need replacement at times. Learned I had to buy a second maintenance manual which has been very helpful for doing maintenance and repairs myself. Love my Horse tiller even after all that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from hand me down tiller I have a tiller horse model given to me by my grand farther when at 80 he wanted an electric start model. that was 20 years ago. Today it broke for the first time I know of, ( other than tires and belts) . It broke at my grand daughters house. (you just can't lend tools). I would think it is a clip or keeper in the tranny let the axle slide sideways.Gramp farmed 26 acres and I farm 10. It has to be 40 years old. how good is the warrinty? lol. when I fix it maybe its time for me to buy an electric start (mom won't give up gramps). and pass this one on to the grand children.I farm very rocky soil so tines have been replaced also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tiller After the tiller was delivered my wife and I put it together. Because of the weather we were not able to use it right away. A few days later we took it out to till one of our small gardens. I engaged the pto so the tines would run and they made about 5 turns and quit. I had to take it to the local dealer to have it fixed. It turned out to be an internal part had let loose. They put a spot of weld on it to keep it from happening again. It was a bit of a job to get the lever that engages and dis-engages to work easily. I found that WD40 or some lube on the roller and other joints that have to move makes life a lot easier. Once we got all those problems solved we love it. I have 1 large garden and 2 smaller ones and it does a great job of tilling them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Old Horses Never Die I bought my Horse used from the man who sold us our present house in 1998. He was retiring to Florida and had no further use for it. Good thing for me!! The tiller was old then but he had all the manuals and records, from the 1950's if I had to guess. He had replaced the engine with an OEM Kohler "some years back". Kohler engine starts on first or second try, always, no matter how long it sits. Just fill the gas, open the choke and pull one time then start working. Unless you are farming the San Joaquin Valley, you won't need anything else but the Horse tiller.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 25 Years and Still GOing Strong I'm on the second engine and the second set of tines but I think I have gotten good value out of it. The drive engagement lever is a bit moody but once you get it adjusted correctly it will work. Generally maintenance is a pain also. You have to remove the handle bars to put oil in the transmission. The wheels are extremely difficult to remove which has to be done to replace the axle shaft seals. But in the twenty-five years I've had it these are things that I can live with. If you have it serviced by a dealer instead of doing it all yourself then you won't even know about the maintenance issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pull start horse tiller This is my second horse. My other one is still running and almost 40 years old. It leaks a little but still works great. The new one is great. There have been some really good improvements on the machine. Most notably heavier gear levers, The tiller it's self, also seems to be heavier built than my old one. It has metal shields over the seals on the tiller shafts. My old one does not. I have put about 10 hrs of use on it and it does the job. I don't like the adjustment of the handle bars it is no where as good as the old ones. Also, it still has the same old method of adjusting the belt. Haven't improved that in 40 years. Not as heavy in front on the tires because of the new Briggs and Straton engines being lighter. But they use a lot less gas. I would not hesitate to buy another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Old Reliable Altho my Horse is at least 25 years old, it is so similar to the present Horse that I would venture to say the reliability and durability should be expected to be similar . I "inherited " it when we bought our present house. It was part of the deal (I insisted). I have replaced the tines twice, (worn down from the square end to little pointy ends) on third set since we started using it. Truly, "A hun of a tilla!" Everything is open and available for maintenance and adjustment. The B&S engine starts with a pull or with the electric start. A new battery every other year is a must, clean and adjust the carburater every season. I just wish there was a snow blower to attach to the engine unit.
