small tiller recomendation
New here, so apologize if I'm in the wrong section.
My situation is that my small tiller, 2HP, 2cycle craftsman died (broken gears in the tranny) after 12 very dependable years. Due to it's age, and the fact that it was manufactured by AMF, no parts are available, EXCEPT for the entire tranny from Sears for $149 plus S&H.
My application is primarily tilling between rows in the veggie garden and occasionally spot tilling in the wife's flower beds. I have a large rear tine beast for the "heavy hauling."
I'm thinking of a 2 cycle mantis due to warranty and "everyone" loves them. Anything else out there of interest? Honda was into small tillers but they seem to have disappeared lately?
Thanks for your time,
