SOURCE: where do i find serial numbers on troy bilt horse tillers

On the old Gardenways Horse the serial number is stamped into the top of a little flange on the side of the transmission just to the right (viewed from behind) of where the handles attach. It may be covered in gunk so a douse of mineral spirits and a little scraping will reveal it.

You can download the manual and parts list from the Troybuilt site. Enter "HORSE" for the model and the serial number.

SOURCE: my troy bilt horse has serial number 544253, can

if you have a B&S engine look at the frist two numbers on the code. thats the year of the engine and more likelyof your unit, As long as the motor has'nt been replaced. I'll checked on your serial number did'nt find a model. If this is an old troy built I'll have to call tech support. also I need to know what engine 4, 4.5, 6, 7, 8, hr power, and the name of the teller. MTD now owens troy built.

SOURCE: how do you disable the saftey on the deck so i can

You really should not disable a safety. You'd hate to back up over a pet or child that wandered up behind you. It does happen.

There is probably a way to hold the switch so you can temporarily back up without shutting the machine down. Check your instruction manual for this info.

SOURCE: i have an old troy bilt pony rotertiller no serial tag

The decals r a good indication, they probably didn't have any more made than they needed. The only thing i can think of is, sometimes on the back side of the flywheel, (if u ever have it off) r some stamped numbers. One set of numbers is the month, and one set is the year it was made. Now that's the flywheel, but the engine should be the same year.

I lost mt manual to my tiller. how do i get another manual?


If you have a Troy-bilt tiller, go to http://manuals.mtdproducts.com/mtd/Public.do?BrandCode=10001 . Enter both your model number and serial number to access the manual online. If you want to order one, the price will probably be $10.

The model and serial number are likely on a plaque on the tine housing.

I hope this helps.

Hi! i have older troybilt rear tine tiller and would like tires and if possible a owners manuel the only serial # i could find is 464932. do you have access to older parts for equipment such as mine?...


http://www.mtdparts.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OperatorManualView?storeId=10101&catalogId=19502&langId=-1

Go to the above website and put in your model and serial number. If it is a Horse tiller just type in Horse and your serial number and you can download a copy of your operator manual. If it is the Horse model it was built between 1/1/80 and 7/1/80. i believe you have a Horse II four speed model that will just have one drive belt the older Horse I tillers were two speed with two belts.
Most any good tire shop can supply tires for your tiller or you can order them online and take then to a shop to mount for you. If your tires are not real bad they can just put tubes in them so they will hold air. Almost all parts are available through MTD who owns the Troy Bilt name now or through many sites online.

Good Luck,

I have a troybilt pony tiller made on 1/22/79. On the transmission there is this number P35944...at least it looks like a P, not sure on that digit. Farther back on transmission near the tines, there is...


One is a serial number and the other is a part number ... This tiller was built in Troy, New York by Gardenway Manufacturing. Unfortunately, that family owned company is out of business. Whether there is still manufacturing in Troy New York, I am not sure but it is not the same company today as it was in 1979.

The assets, including the name, were purchased (and some sold) by several manufacturers, notably, MTD. The Troy products sold today are similar to the Troy products of the Gardenway Manufacturing. In my experience, there is no better customer service than that I received from GardenWay. The 6.5 was a big Pony ... I purchased a Horse about the same time and it is a 6.0 hp Techumsa. I am on my second engine and I wouldn't take twice the $ for it.

This tiller probably cost in the vicinity of $800.00 delivered.

There is a company in Canada that has specs on most Troy Models ... and access to lots of Troy parts, though thre are lots of other places that sell parts and have diagrams as well.

At one point Briggs was making 'flails' for the Troy Chipper Shredder ...

I hope this helps you with your tiller ... It is a teriffic machine.

Here is an interesting discussion board ... if you are interested: http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/tools/msg1108413014912.html

Go to this website and type in horse for your model number and you should be able to find a parts break down for your tiller. If the serial number is 874639 it was made in 3/88 and will be a four speed PTO model.
I find a lot of parts on Ebay for these tillers, your can order parts through MTD but they will be a little pricey. MTD aquired Troy Bilt out of bankruptcy in 2001 and still carries parts for the tillers.

Where do I find the model number and serial number, it is an old troy bilt rear tine tiller, two speed


The older models do not have an actual model number but only a name to distinguish the size. Early production models include the Horse, Pony and Junior. You must find the location of the serial number tag to order parts that will fit your particular rototiller for seamless replacement of parts. Hope this will help

Tilller will not run


Get the model # and serial # off of the sticker. Got to the Troy Bilt site and use the owners manual link. Need to leave off the last 3 numbers of the model #.

If that site does not have the manual, I've found them on the MTD site. I enter only the first 2 numbers of the model # and then hunt for my manual from the list.

If all else fails, you can call Troy Bilt at their # provided on the site.

Hope this helps.
