Hi,'

I was looking at some old literature for troy bilt tillers and saw new tine gap is 3" and to replace at (I think) 6-8".  Mine are about 9" gap, so I think replacement time is here.  This is a mid 70's rear tine tiller with a newer briggs industrial plus.  Does anyone have a recommendation on replacement tines?  OEM are real costly and there is a big variety on eBay and Amazon.

 

Any guidance would be appreciated,

Jon

I would be real careful getting something like that off eBay.  Chinese is not good at all.  We send a pound of scrap iron over there and get a pound and half back in merchandise.  Wonder what they add, shovel full of doo-doo?  Think of how long the OEM lasted and figure your cost per year to use it.  I put new on a BCS 15 years ago and they are still well over 1/2 width yet and we have a large garden.

  If you're tilling sandy or rocky ground the cheaper tines will wear fast.

Hi,

The tiller was a 6hp (if I remember correctly) serial 272444, a 2 speed shift/tine speed.  The tiller is my fathers, his soil has been worked over for years and I very occasionally borrow it. My soil is full of stones.

 

Thanks,

Jon

IIRC some of the aftermarket "replacement" tines have 3 holes in them so they can be used in different brands, etc. (and consequently a weak spot is present). I would strictly stay with 2-hole tines forTroy Bilt ONLY.
