            Poor example of a cultivator
            [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I gave this a poor review because weeds collected around the gearbox shaft and heated up the gearbox to the point where one could not touch it. I cleaned the weeds out and tried to restart but it would not. The engine has no compression. I used it twice. TB is not as good as when they were built in Troy NY.

                I used this cultivator two times. The first time was with bare ground and loose soil. It worked fine. The second time was with numerous weeds in the garden. The weeds bound the tines at the gearbox interface and overheated the engine. I thought this was a carburetor issue, but upon checking the compression on the engine, it only has 14psi. This is a design issue, and I would not recommend it. Since TB was bought out in Troy, NY, and moved to Ohio, the quality has suffered. TB is not the old TB we all once knew. Total operation hours were about 4.
