Two Wheeled Terror
I’m a lover of all things two-wheeled, but none more than my 1984 Troy-Bilt Rototiller. It sports the eight H.P. Kohler motor, horizontal shaft drive and tough-as-nails crash bars. I bought it new and it has fed me and my family for all these years. It is nearly bulletproof and always starts on the second pull, even after sitting in the shop all winter. The float stuck once and I’ve replaced worn tines and tires, but she’s never let me down, surviving drought, flood, divorce and a brief bout with bi-polar disorder.
Yesterday she started on the second pull and now stands ready to embark on another season of dirt-churning, long cruises in the garden and County Fair, Nitro-methane division Tractor Pulls.
Just look at her and tell me she ain’t sexy as Hell!
