I couldn't sleep Friday night so I was on Craigslist at 3am just looking. I came across an ad for a rototiller in the next town up the road from me. I sent him an email and just as I was leaving work Saturday morning I got a call from the seller. The engine needs some work and I was told it ran but oil was coming out of the air cleaner so the engine probably needs rebuilt. The tires are in bad shape from sitting. One looks like it maybe useable but the other is junk. The ad only showed the rototiller so I was surpriesed when the seller pulled out a furrower and a next to new snow plow and said they go with the rototiller too. I paid $40 for it, which was a good price. I plan to keep this rototiller to use for parts if my brothers Troybilt Horse ever needs something.

Do you have the mounting plate for the blade?

Chances are it is just the breather is blocked. That is a nice machine. Spend a little time on it. The manual is available in our manuals section. Good Luck, Rick

  Good buy!! You might want to smell the oil to see if there's gas in it. That will make it blow oil out the crankcase vent.
