What part of town are you in? Is it an issue with engine or something
specific to the tiller? Does the Mantis web site list any recommended
dealers in the area?

I have had my 30+ year old TroyBilt tiller serviced a couple of times at
Stephens Ace Hardware in Fuquay. I think they are(were) an authorized
repair center for TroyBilt (from before TroyBilt sold out to MTD).

I live near Rex Hospital. The issue is with the engine. The machine is
about 20 years old and until last year started on the first or second
tug. Last year was more difficult and now... not at all. I tried the
web site... at your suggestion. It doesn't load this morning. I will
try that again.

Ahem, you're probably seeing through this through the garden banter
hijacking of USENET.

This is triangle.gardens.
In the USENET hierarchy triangle.* refers to the "Triangle" region
of North Carolina, US (An area vaguely defined by the towns of
Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill).
The shipping costs to take that tiller to the UK could pay for a new
tiller.

And yes we deserve our own hierarchy, this area is the BIRTHPLACE
of USENET.
