Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not many brakedowns I bought this back in 1986 I do believe. It still keeps going. Hardly any issues at all, as long as you keep the care up, it will last forever, at least35 + yrs. and still going strong.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the Original Troybilt This is my second Troybilt Horse model. The drive system and engine is like the first, however, others features are inferior. The clutch lever is made of soft tubular steel design and has bent already from normal use. The tine engagement mechanism has a socket head screw that engages the spline which wore off and had to be replaced. The safety switch system on the handles quite working and I had to repair.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not greatly pleased I own an older model Horse that was built in the 80's. I decided to purchase a big red because of the electric start feature. It was purchased locally 3/25/19. Was delivered and found 3 issues rather quickly. Throttle too tight, thus peeling the coating off of the metal cable. Also the handlebar levers would not stop machine. The disengaging rod set to tight, putting too much pressure on this action trying to disengage and place machine in neutral. After sending machine back, these items were corrected. Machine worked as advertised, until hearing a grinding sound a few months later. Sent back for service, and the transmission was found needing to be replaced. After replacement the tiller was brought back to me for testing. Still grinding, even in reverse. WOW! Sent out again on July 15th for further evaluation. Still awaiting the results. Come on Troy, you have to do better than this! And by the way, I have been using the old horse on occasion to try to keep my gardens looking good. Other than these issues, I hope to use this tiller again. after all, I did buy it to use.
