Troy-Bilt Pony Rototiller 5HP Briggs & Stratton

Changing the air filter, spark plug and pre-filter. Boy, if you can find one of these you can’t go wrong. 8″ tilling depth, strong 5 hp horizontal engine, cast iron shaft and tranny housing, bronze ring gear and even holes in wheels for weights. Its a terrific tractor that I immensely enjoy. It rips up sod with light passes and once the soil is prepared for your garden, it goes through it year after year with no effort at all. here is some simple maintenance.

  1. Great job Bud!! I agree with Jim!! Troy Bilt are by far the best tillers out there!! I use to have a pro model i think it might have been a 7 or 8 horse!!☺

  2. Hahaha! Yeah, I was like "so sue me" because everyone complains about box stores. So I then found some legal language I could use for free… just some stupid video excerpt I did. I'm always trying to experiment. I had bloopers in the original version- but I didn't find them funny after a couple times. Still working on that. Stick to my day job I guess!

  3. I have one of these older models runs great its just too big and too heavy for me and my little garden boxes.. Do you have any idea what I should ask for one of these tillers???

  4. Hi Ladybird, if its an Econo Horse or Horse, you can usually get $600-800 for them in decent shape. The big models with 6-8hp engines are pretty much in demand. Check out ebay and Craigslist to see what they are going for and make yours look as good as possible. You should do just fine selling it.

  5. Yeah i forgot to mention this in my other comment but u put ur pre filter on backwards screen is actually supposed to be down i dont know why it makes more sense to be the other way but there is alot of things in this world that baffles me!

  6. Dude, thanks a lot. You're right. I didn't catch that. The screen definitely goes up to catch the bugs and stuff that get sucked in. I'm gonna switch it later today, so I don't forget for next year. Thanks a lot!

  7. What are the belt sizes for the 3.5 hsp  pony for the forward and reverse belts?
     I can't find the model number on my pony Thanks

  8. My dad has this tiller but it has an electric start. I've pulled it out of the shed and am going to use it this fall and upcoming spring for my garden. It hadn't been started in 7 years. We drained the gas and cranked it about 10 times and it fired right off. The only problem I've had is when squeezing the lower handles up to engage the wheels. They won't come up flush to the top handles. Have any suggestions? I can't see anything obvious on it that would be causing the problem. Thanks!

  9. I have a old troybilt pony 5 hp Briggs and Stratton motor that has no model number or serial number and everything I use it it wonders everywhere I think it's a 1992 any idea how to use it
