i would imagine the tiller quality will closely parallel the garden tractor quality in other words watch out,or look at garage sales or flea markets for a older rear tine, you'll get much more for your money, i picked up a older rear tine troy built power horse, i understand thats the largest one they made, its probably from the 80's and i had to wait 4 months for a new carb for it, but it works good, even though its no counter rotating ,on the other hand if you have to spend money anyway whats wrong with the ones you have?

One is an older Sears, circa 1960s. The clutch is bad and the engine replaced once already. Does not work good in the sandy soil, soil will drag engine down and kill it. The other is about a 10 year old Ryobi 2 cycle light weight. The tines have stopped rotating under any type of load with a whirring, grinding sound. I'm thinking repair cost on either woud well outway their usefullness in my sandy soil. Also as I'm close to 70 and with a torn rotator cuff and arthritis the front tines are beating me up.

got a soft spot for those old sears tillers, my friend needed a tiller, and there was a old sears in his moms old barn, now this thing had not been fired up since the late 80's, nor was it prepared for storage, but rather just put in the barn after use, we cleaned the fuel tank, sprayed the carb with cleaner and added new gas, that old thing started up on the 2nd pull and ran just fine,in fact i saw him using it just last Wednesday, ill bet the new ones wont do that lol
