The tines have NEVER been used to till. Not the case at all!!! Sounds great and has lots of power. If your in the market for a top of the line tiller then there is no question on the choice here.It isn't very often you are going to find a demo tiller which has done nothing but look pretty at storefront. Sure there are some tremendously minor cosmetic flaws. These are so minor that they are irrelevant and let's be honest. How many of you would quickly add your own cosmetic flaw within the first use or two? If you can't live without side tine covers then this is the only real point of hesitation. This tiller came out with a price near 1k. This has the 196cc Kohler built engine; not to be confused with the similar named Earthquake with a Viper engine. The Earthquake Victory rear tine rototiller delivers the ultimate combination of power and size.
The Victory features a 196cc Kohler engine that delivers optimal power to the rear-mounted CRT tines. This combination allows you to till the most stubborn soils when breaking new ground or maintaining your garden throughout the growing season.The added reverse functionality allows for increased control over the tiller when maneuvering the unit. Air-less wheels ensure Victory is always ready for work.

It is missing original lench pin, two lock pins, a 6 screw bolt nut set for the handle, the two side covers that would go beside the tines (most people I know never use these), and a 6 screw bolt nut set that would be used for that. It has some paint scratching, rust spots in a small space, and the back tine cover is bent a little (not a big deal as it easily bends the way you would want it too). Here's what's missing or updated. Replaced with a non-Earthquake linchpin. 2 x lock pin Originals missing.
They have been replaced with non-Earthquake branded lock pins. 6 combos of bolts, nuts, and washers are missing that would connect the side tine covers.
Both tine covers are missing. Buyers cared more about knowing the tiller starts and runs well than knowing it has never been started even once. After ensuring that all pre-start checklist items were complete I fired her up. No problems at all accept for my desire to go till some land.
Parts have been re-checked about thirty times during this process to help ensure I'm giving the most accurate description. I don't know how much side tine shield covers would cost.I'll add an update if I figure that out. It'll most likely require calling Earthquake. Any other questions just inbox me and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
