The Colt 24, 208 cc tiller is a powerful tool for serious garden cultivation. It cuts through tough soil and medium roots. The all-metal full and oil tanks resist squirrel and other rodent damage. Operation is straightforward and instructions for winter care are clear.

The Troy Built tiller was easy to put together and really lives up to its name and description! I used it to till up hard clay dirt and it reduced everything to a nice crumble. This is a great tiller and I recommend it to anyone wanting a good front tine tiller for garden work.

Bought 2. They both broke.
Always lost pins. Both seized up and died with plenty of oil and fuel. Horrible, expensive product.
