I'm a landscaper on weekends. bought a craftsman tiller.
Used once for about an hour. Ran well. 2 weeks later, it wouldn't start. Used Fresh gas.
Followed starting instructions. Must have pulled 50-60 times. Starter rope broke. I was pissed and wanted a refund,unfortunately, it was 40 days since the purchase.
Sears rep had me take it to their repair shop who shared that they need to replace the transmission along with the starter rope. This is not what I expect of a new machine, especially a craftsman. Wasted weekend, and it looks like another weekend will past as they have not repaired the tiller yet. 2 weeks and counting.
Disappointed with this lemon of a tiller. How does a transmission go bad on a new tiller, especially when the soil I
was working with was rock free?
