Well. I finally made up my mind on which tiller I wanted to buy.. I couldn't justify the "Green" prices and especially since the Deere tiller was only weighing in at 320 something pounds.. I took a good look at county line and decided I didn't want to be on the heaviest end of tiller options and I didn't like the support I got from them when I called for more information about the tiller. Store told me one thing and the manufacturer told me another. When I mentioned that is not what the store told me he got grumpy and said " then go with what the store told you if that makes you more inclined to buy it". REALLY? I just hung up on him. I understand that the stores may not know some exact details but there was no need for snarky remarks.
Anyway. I brought this home on Friday! Land Pride RTA1250. As much as I want it to snow... I am super excited for spring to come!
Thank you everyone for all of your advice and comments!
