Need help identifying Troy-Bilt Tiller

Posted by carlo_822 (My Page) on

Hello everyone,

I am thinking about purchasing a used Troy-Bilt tiller for $200 with a 8hp Kohler engine. It needs new belts and gas leaks for some reason but I figured it would be worth fixing.
This is what the owner says it has in addtion to the following numbers: Serial# 319509 and also TH-1003 B1 is on the machine.

I would appreciate any help if someone can identify this tiller to any extent.

Well, try it out! If it has an operating engine, doesn't rap, runs and drives, and digs and plows, thats about all you can ask for!
If it looks nice, seems to have been taken care of, not left to set out in all kinds of weather, has all of its main parts, those things are a plus!
I was given one that had set in an old shed, with a busted connecting rod, a dead battery, two flat tires, and a total lack of care! With a new con rod, and a lot of work making it run, I sold it to a friend,for $250, who is still using it, 7 years later!
Are you sure it is a Troy-bilt? I think MTD is now handling them, for parts.
