1975 Tory Built Horse Tiller

joetoeOctober 26, 2010

I am looking to replace the engine on my 1975 Tory Built Horse Tiller, it came with a Tecumseh 6 HP. and about 10 years ago I replce it with a Briggs 5HP and it never could go 2 inches in the ground, in fact it was lucky to go a inch in the ground before it died. With the Tecumseh 6 HP it would dig 6 to 8 inches and keep digging.

I am looking a a Honda 61/2 HP and a Kohler 6 HP which one is the best of the two? Which one has the gutts to dig 6 to 8 inches in the ground?
