So maybe my grandads is closer to mkd to late 80s then. Not sure when the horse tillers had the 8 hp Kohler engines on them. Anywbo hoping to slowly expand my garden a little each year depending on how well it goes each year lol.Thanks!
I've had the Troy Bilt tiller since 1982 I believe. Bought in new for $1,200.

Lol yup inherited it so going to give my first go at a garden this year! My grandad must've known about that truck because it is slightly over filled (he's been gone several years now so I can't ask him, actually I wouldn't have inherited it because he would still be using it lol) but so far it has ran great even though it hasn't really been cranked in probably 10-12 years. It is leaking a little gear oil around the rear seal so plan to tear that down this winter and put new seals in.Mine has the 8hp Briggs IC. The 7hp Kohler was also available in 1982 and also a 6hp Tecumseh all on the Horse model. A tip I read years ago was to over fill with motor oil due to the bad angle the engine is at during deep tilling. I do not know if that applies to the Kohler motor or not. The Kohler should be a great motor too but I don't know what year the 8hp Kohler was offered. This Briggs is original.
Hold on a minute young wippersnapper!
Your Grand dad's? [emoji23]
