    Default Chain vs. Gear Drive

    Just wanted to get some opinions on the pros and cons of chain drive or gear drive in tillers. My 20 year old tiller, a Snapper, has chain drive and I had to take it apart quite a few times to replace master links on the chain. Just wondering if gear drive would eliminate that problem only to leave me with other problems.

    Don..........Judging by the number of Troy-bilts that are still turning the wheels on gears, I would say that the decision is in.............Chains and belts are made for machines that break and need replacing. Gears go on and on and on.........God bless......Dennis
