A Date With Troy


Troy is the other man in my life. He's been around longer than my husband. I probably should mention that Troy is my Troy-Bilt Tiller. Our gardens aren't ready to till yet, but I need to get ole Troy ready for the season. I think this week him and I will get together. He needs an oil change and general clean up. I may need to replace one of the gaskets on the tine housing too. The great thing about this tiller is that it is very easy to work on. The service department is top notch; at least it was last time I had to work on him and needed assistance.

Several years ago, he wasn't idling properly and I couldn't get it right, so I took him to a shop that supposedly worked on Troy-Bilts. The dude told me that the engine needed to be rebuilt. #fail! I loaded Troy back in the truck and split. Who did he think he was dealing with? I knew he was wrong and was just trying to take advantage of the fact that I was female.
Troy tilled many a garden after that 'diagnosis' and after his tune up, he'll be ready for another year of gardening. I love him. xo
Hope the weather is starting to get Spring-like in your world.
Until next time.....

Does Troy know you once had your eye on John Deere? It really is a beautiful machine and I hope you can get out with him soon.

Can I borrow Troy? I promise to return him in a little while.....
:D This talk of Troy makes me realize we've not even checked on the tiller here... I would hate to have to buy a new Troy
