I have a 2 troybilt horse tillers. I need to replace the tines. I don't want to buy the custom hardened ones at $250. I found cheaper OEM spec tines from the following manufacturers:
1) troybilt 1901118
2) stens 370-270
3) oregon 84-101
4) rotary 8620
5) ??? B145046
Does anybody know which ones will last the longest and by how much - eg. twice as long or 1/3 longer etc.???

The real answer is a good fork and spade and dig as deep as u can, forming a slightly elevaetd bed. Do not walk on the bed, use a digging/planting board. Total xost will be about that of the tines. You can dig a 4' x 25' [100 sf] bed in three hours or so in the worst of soils. Get the compost bed going and mulch the bed. Digging is purely mental and not all that physical. you will be more efficent in your gardening. I muct confess I had an 8 hp hourse for 20 years in fact had two at the end. Put new tines on both and a motor on one and sold them both.

I never found any tines that were very much better than the other. The custom heavy duty stress the pto transmission too much and it will fail over time. The fact is they eat dirt afor a living and wear out fast . I had a good sized garden and bought a new set each year. In 4 years I have dug 60 raised beds 4' x 30 ft each.
