Please recommend small tiller!

lovemrmeweyJune 20, 2014

Can anyone recommend a small garden tiller? We have a larger one, and a smaller one, both Troy-Bilt. However, they have been in the garage unused for years. My husband has not been able to use them. Neither wants to run; I had the carburetor cleaned and a few little parts replaced on the small one but it still is not usable. I don't know if it's feasible to have work done on one of these or to buy a small new one. If someone could recommend one, that would be great. Maybe an electric one? Anyway, thank you so much for your help!! I am just craving flowers again after all these years!

I have a 1981 Troy Bilt Horse, a Poulan Pro, about 2003, and a 2 cycle Mantis. I have some health issues and I cant use the Horse because it is too heavy. The Mantis is nice if you can get it started and keep it running. The Poulan Pro is much easier to start and use than the other two, but If I were to buy a new tiller an electric, Maybe a Mantis would be the first one I would look at because of my health issues.
