    Troy Bilt are the cheapest junk made by MTD. Their tillers are still tough, but the mowers are total junk. I know, as I do warranty work on Troybilt stuff all the time.
    Do not even think about buying a Troybilt mower.

    I need another tiller and thought about Troy built until I checked them out and I have sense decided to go with Husqvarna 700 DRT with dual rotating tines, this tiller is built a lot heavier than the Troy built tiller in the same price range and higher. The Troy built mowers are junk so stay away from them.
