Old Goats
L-R:  John DeKnegt, John Pattison, Allen Cluett, Charlie Zuck, and Les Miller.  There is a lot of ROTOTILLER knowledge between us.  John Pattison and Allen Cluett worked for the original Troy-Bilt Company and their fathers both worked for ROTOTILLER, INC..  Lots of stories and history from both companies from them.  Les Miller has one of every tiller Rototiller made up to 1948.  I don't know of anyone else with a more complete collection.  An old ROTOTILLER dealership was located down the street from where he lives.  So far we have not succeeded in getting John to collect tillers, but he does accompany Les to shows and enjoys that part.

Welcome to Zuck's ROTOTILLERS, a website about tillers made by, sold by, or sold under the name of ROTOTILLER.   Here you can learn about the  history of ROTOTILLER, INC., a company that later evolved into Troy-Bilt.   There is plenty to see on the pages of Zuck's Rototillers.  If you have any questions  or an interesting  ROTOTILLER  story,  email me via the Contact button.   Please look over the menu before emailing me a question,  there may be  a  topic that will answer your question.  Most of my expertise is with ROTOTILLER and Troy-Bilt brand tillers, including the Frazer ROTOTILLER.
John Pattison has written a very nice piece on the early history of Rototiller and I have a link to the article below.  He has a long connection with Rototiller and Garden Way.  His father was a member of the law firm that represented Rototiller, Inc., and he worked for Garden Way. If you like history or are interested in the forerunner of the Troy-Bilt Horse check out the article.    Rototiller - The 1930's

Go to my YouTube channel to see many of my tillers in acton.

The great Garden Way booklet, Gardening Beyond The Plow is now available here

I have some new and used parts for ROTOTILLER brand tillers.  I may have the part you need to keep your ROTOTILLER running.
