I like both those are fine machines. Those made by Garden Way were good. The machines made by MTD today not so good.

They both look like very nice tillers to me. I picked up a TB junior last year at a yard sale. I had previously only used front tyne tillers. I was shocked at how much easier it is to till with a rear tyne and how much nicer the soil was afterwards.

I missed an auction that had a Clinton equipped Troy Bilt.  It was the only thing there I was interested in, everything else was post 1990 and with 200+ horsepower, or made of china and sold to dish collectors.  I wish I had gone now that I know.
