Not The Old Troy-Built Company
on May 22, 2005
After my 22inch Yard-Man string trimmer died I was pleased to see Troy-Bilt offered a similar product. I read the previous review that stated problems with the broken oil tube. I have owned a Troy-Bilt rooter tiller for years and thought this was simply a unusual happening, after all Troy-Bilt makes the best. Little did I know the old Troy-Bilt went out of business and was aquired by MTD products. Well ten days later I received my trimmer and the oil tube was broken. With fire season on the way I taped the tube in place and used it to clear the brush. I called MTD products and between being keep on hold on the phone and getting the run around I gave up trying to get the replacement part under warranty. I ordered a new tube on line for $15 including shipping. This string trimmer is the old Yard-Man trimmer with a different engine. Last but not least the product worked well it just wasn't of old Troy-Bilt quality.
