An older lady at work was telling me she has "something big that was used in the garden" sitting in her garage. I asked what it was, and she didn't know, but she said I could have it, if it was still there.

I told her I'll be there this Sat to pick it up.

Free is GOOD!!!!! :smile1::smile1::smile1:

Maybe it's a scarecrow :bigrofl:

Good luck on it, we're all hoping it's something cool. Whatever it is, you're not overpaying.

Yes free is most always good! You thinking TroyBilt tiller?? OR did they make tractors too? Buddy has a TroyBilt Horse tiller that he has had for 30 years or so, I think on its second engine(he is a commercial landscaper) but the mechanicals are still strong. We want PICS!!!

If it's a Troy built Horse it's quite a find. I love mine with the Kohler Magnum 8HP. If it were me and my luck I would get over there and it would be some big tomato cages.

If she had said that to me my luck would turn out to be "a big bag of old you know what" that has petrified in the corner. I hope it is an old Troy-Bilt, they are great tillers, had mine for close to 20 years already. Just change oil and filters, keep clean and covered in off season.
Good luck !
