Default Troy-Bilt Tiller Serial Number List

I have compiled a list of Troy-Bilt tiller serial numbers and thier respective years of manufacture. This list includes data for the Horse I, II, III, and Operator Presence Control (O.P.C., Horse IV) up through the end of 1992.

It also contains data for the Pony tillers from 1976 though the middle of 1983 and the Junior tiller from the middle of 1981 through the middle of 1983.

This list was compiled from several sources and I cannot verify nor attest to the accuracy.

While I am sure that this list is helpful, it is not complete. If anyone has more information or finds errors, let me know. We will consider this list to be a work in progress.

Sorry, but I don't have that information. I've been looking for it for a while now to add it, but so far, no joy.

It was built in February of 1989. The number beside the month is the starting serial number built that month.

Hi I have a Troy Bilt Horse that I bought a few years ago and according to the serial number (848062) Its a March April 1987.. All the bolts on the shield covering the tines are not the correct bolts which tells me someone in the past has either changed the bolts maybe they fell out or someone has changed the cover. The dates on the instructions/stickers on the shield are 1984. Question is do you all think that this is in line with a 1987 tiller to have 1984 stickers on it? I have seen other products have dates on the stickers a year before the date of the actual product but 3 years seems like a bit of a stretch to me...idk any thoughts would be helpful as im going to restore this someday and if I have to buy or make new decals I minus well get the correct ones true to the year of the tiller. Thanks

I have just purchased a Troy Bilt Horse tiller, with the serial number 475437, but was unable to find this number in the list. I was hoping to know what year it was made, and also which gear/transmission oil it requires. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you.

According to the list I have your tiller was made in June 1980. I use straight 140 oil in my Troy-Bilt tillers.

Hello,
I just pulled one of these out of a barn in RI, where can I locate the serial number? It has a Tecumseh I would think HH60 engine on it. Thank you

It's normally stamped in the top right side of the tranny case.

Guys, I'm very sorry that I missed your posts earlier. Life gets crazy at times.

To locate the serial number on the tillers themselves to determine the age of the unit, look for the tab on the side of the transmission, near the top, behine the right wheel from the right hand of the operator's position.

Once you find the number, look in the list at the top of the thread to determine what year and what model it is, e.g. Horse I, Horse II, etc.

Once the model is determined, we have the manuals available for download here:

Hope this helps guys.

Looking for help in identifying this old Troy...
Price was right.... free. The guy who owned it is long gone and his daughter gave it to me, having no knowledge at all. Runs, tills, covered in caked on oil sludge & MTD has no clue what it is. I really need a repair manual or parts book. No surviving stickers except enough of one with the original Troy, NY phone number. Engine looks newer, Tecumseh 5HP. Starts & runs good. 3 of the 4 bolts holding it on were loose and one nut had fallen off. Strange, the oil looks new. Tills up a storm and light enough for me to lift into raised beds. Will come in handy.
Found this on the round transmission shaft: M above what looks like 319290. Second digit is out of line & may not be a one. Wheels are 5.5" dia, tires solid rubber 9" OD. Wheels rusted to the axle shaft & haven't been able to break them loose YET. Tine cover 15" wide, no belt cover, no reverse, even though the forward / reverse rod is in place & there is a reverse idler pulley. No front guard on engine. Maybe I could figure out how to post a picture, but do you have any ideas from this description?

I used to own a Pony many, many years ago & loved it. Have not gardened for years and now seriously getting back into it. Financially challenged, so free is good....

Bob
