After reading this I popped an email to them to see what was up. I have a Troybuilt Horse tiller my dad bought new in 1981. Troybuilt always had a program that you could send a tiller back to them and for 1/2 price a new one they would completely overhaul the entire unit to make it new again. With that in mind and the future need of parts for my tiller I sent an email checking everything out. He was the reply. It seems MTD bought the assets.


Eric,

No rebuild offer. We are working on gathering information and parts.
Unfortunately, because of their financial situation, Gardenway had
allowed
their service parts inventory to become greatly depleted. Many to
negative
levels. If you know the part number(s) you need, and would like to
check
our availability of this part, please call 800-269-6215. The names
Troy-Bilt and Bolens were formerly manufactured under the parent
company
Gardenway. This company, Gardenway, had recently filed for bankruptcy
and
is out of business. MTD Products Inc., out of Cleveland, Ohio
(www.mtdproducts.com), has purchased most of the assets under the
Troy-Bilt
and Bolens names. We, MTD, are now undergoing the grueling task of
gathering these remaining assets, contacting dealers, contacting
suppliers
and attempting to continue some or most of the business relationships
that
Gardenway had. It may take weeks before this transfer and these
relationships can be organized. Please bear with us as we work through
this
process. Note: MTD did not purchase assets of, and is not responsible
for
any Troy-bilt chipping, shredding, vacuuming and/or debris related
equipment.

Greg Schafer
MTD Products Inc
