Default Bulk Trash Collection in Town

Last month my town had its bi annual bulk trash curbside pick up. As usual I was able to score quite a few lawn and garden machines to repair and sell, plus what ever the scrappies brought by to sell me. But I've also had a bunch of machines come my way from friends. Today while driving back to the shop I saw a landscaper friend that asked if I wanted a free rear tine tiller. I followed him back to his shop and he gave me this. I really didnt want it but I think its the original Troy Bilt tiller. Its got a cast iron Clinton on it. And it actually runs! With ser# 369 its an early one. Im sending it down the road for $100.00 Monday LOL.

Sadly I dont have the space or the spare time for a garden or I would to save a ton of money and eat fresh. I save a lot of machines from going to scrap that are otherwise still very much useable as Im not a fan of this disposable society we live in today. Hopefully its new owner will use it for many years to come and repower it when the engine dies because that gear case looks like it could handle a 15Hp engine let alone that little 3Hp one lol

I need to research this machine online to see if its the fore runner of the Troy Bilt by Garden Way or was another company. The handles sure look like Troy Bilt.

Charlie (Chuck) Zuck in Pennsylvania is one of the most knowledgeable guys on the history of the Rototiller Company and its various models.

His website provides much info.

Thanks Bruce, I sent him off an email on it. Would be very interesting to know how old it is and if the Clinton is the original engine.
