St. Olaf Garden Research and Organic Works


Dan and I made a trip to Rochester, MN yesterday to check out a 1982 Troy-Built 7hp rear tine tiller. After taking a "test drive" of sorts, we decided it was a good deal and made the purchase! We paid $595 for the tiller, which was about $1,200 new back when he bought it.

Even though it's more than 20 years old, I took one look at the horticulture professor's garage (EVERYTHING had a place and was sparkling clean) and knew that tiller had probably been cared for in a similar fashion. We'll be using this tiller for bed preparation throughout the season after Ray Larson tills our land for the first time with a larger implement. Picture of the new tiller coming soon....
