I was looking at the new Troy-Bilt tillers while visiting a local multi-brand dealer. The big Horse model looked close to the quality of the original Troy-Bilts, but it seemed the little guys were closer to what I would expect from MTD. Gosh darned expensive! But I guess they always were. Anyone spend $2999 on a Horse recently? I'll be keeping my 1980 model running a while longer at that price.
