Re: old troy-bilt
I was given a nice 1980 Model Pony Tiller earlier this year.
I like it, except for it wont dig deeper than the rear gear case. I think it might need tines?
Mine is a 5hp model, with the briggs engine. I like it, but it isnt as rugged as the Ariens Rocket7, but it IS more maneuverable.
Tell us how the controls are configured.
Levers under the handle, levers on the handle? A push/pull motion handle?
I had a shot at a TroyBilt Horse a while back, it has a K181S Kohler, and was considerably larger than my pony.
The horse is a monster, it needs a set of ramps to load on a trailor.
While a pony is an easy 2 man lift.
MY favorite is the old Tuffy. Id like to find one with the original Tecumseh H30, Iworked on one and loved it.
