I want to chime in with the review by K. Bennet and others who have this tiller. I bought mine in [the] mid 1970’s in Portland, OR. Like the other gentleman I will be 80 soon and have to give up gardening. The tiller starts every year. It amazes me. I have changed the belt and spark plug once and have been in the shop once for something minor. I change the oil regulary. Great product.
