Tills great but extremely poor quality
on March 31, 2013
I have one of these tillers that I use to till up spots in the yard and flower beds. For that, it works well, quite a bit better than I expected it would, in fact. I have no complaints about how it tills.
That said, this thing is total cheap junk. It's all plastic, even the piece that attaches the engine to the bottom half. Vibration or poor quality plastic created a crack which made the engine tip backwards and ruined the set screw and part of the drive shaft inside that. It was NOT easy to fix and the tiller had to be significantly modified.
Bottom line for me, it works, but it is NOT a $300 quality item. Very disappointed with Troy-Bilt, probably will never buy anything else from them.
