1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware, January 27, 2006
The Troy-Bilt CS4210 Model 24A-424G766 does not come with a Briggs & Stratton 10 HP Intek engine as advertised. Troy-Bilt/MTD discontinued equipping the CS4210 with the engine advertised in 2003. The CS4210 I received came equipped with a Briggs & Stratton Powerbuilt 10 HP engine(BS's lowest quality 10 hp engine). Troy-Bilt/MTD's marketing picture would lead you to believe the engine is the current Intek Pro because of the Dual element aircleaner, rocker on/off switch and high oil fill tube. Don't be fooled by the Troy-Bilt name either based on the reputation of the original company. This machine is an MTD entry level performance machine, not a commercial duty machine. All working parts are identical to other MTD chipper/shredders except for the chromium chipper blades. If you have a need for the commercial durability of an Intek engine don't buy this machine. If you already purchased one and feel misslead as I did, contact Troy-Bilt/MTD technical support ([...] They have offered 10 % of the purchase price plus a free set of chipper blades or to purchase the machine back. They have not yet been willing to change their advertising. If you are considering this machine, be aware that the machine advertised is currently not the machine being shipped. This is not Amazon's fault. Amazon is a very reputable company and stands behind what they sell. The marketing information is provided by MTD.
